The most notable example of this was between Kuwait and Thailand which ended with a final score of 57-0. Thailand outshot their opponent 122-1, in an absolutely humiliating win over Team Kuwait.

This specific tournament is full of developing hockey nations, who are all at different stages in their development. This resulted in multiple eye-popping scores on the first day of the tournament.

Mongolia defeated India 32-0

Uzbekistan defeated Iran 19-0

Although these matchups haven't exactly been fair, it's still very exciting to see countries that aren't typical ‘hockey nations' excelling in international competition at their own level.

Crazily enough, this isn't the biggest booout in international history. That belongs to South Korea, who beat Thailand 92-0 in 1998.
