Abandon all hope

Why, in November of 2001, was a match between Portugal and Angola abandoned?


Angola only had Six players left on the pitch

FIFA rules state that any team with less than seven players on the pitch cannot continue. Angola had four players sent off and another injured with no subs left to come on, thus the game had to be called off. At the time, Portugal led 5-1.
