Germany 11- 0 Argentina

Germany opened the 2007 Women's World Cup in Shanghai with a record-breaking win over Argentina, and they ended the tournament pretty well, too, becoming the only team in Women's World Cup history to win back-to-back tournaments.

Real Madrid recorded the biggest ever Clasico win in 1943, overturning a 3-0 deficit from the first leg as they beat Barcelona 11-1 to advance in the Spanish Cup.

Pruden, with a treble, and Barinaga, who hit four, were the main benefactors of the win

Dundee Harp 35-0 Aberdeen Rovers 1885
