Ok, keeping on the sport theme and because Australia recently qualified for the World Cup (should have gotten in straight from our group but that's another matter).

Iceland have created history being the smallest nation to ever qualify for the World Cup, who held the record before them?

No idea, but I was in Slovenia in 2001 when they qualified for the World Cup. And Slovenia is a small nation.

So my guess would be Slovenia.

Close. Now because of Iceland Slovenia is the 4th smallest country to qualify. Was great to see them get in after only being a recognised country for a few years.

Very close. They are now the 3rd smallest nation to qualify.

They held the record for almost 50 years too.

NI are the smallest nation to ever get out of the group stage also.

That would be great! Although I think technically there are only around 1,000 people that are citizens of the Vatican.
