Armenia had the biggest win in their soccer history Tuesday and credit might be paid to reality TV star Kim Kardashian and her 17.9 million Twitter followers. That's five times times the population of the country of Armenia — where Kim K's paternal bloodlines hail from. Armenia beat Denmark 4-0 in Copenhagen to keep their slim World Cup dreams alive and it was inspirational enough to get Kim K tweeting. No doubt spurred on by Kardashian’s "Let’s go Armenia!!!" tweet, the Armenians took their game to another level. The Danes were 1-0 down inside 30 seconds and had enough trouble keeping up with their opponents; little did they know that they must now contend with with the Kardashian universe. Only 14,784 turned up in Copenhagen to watch Denmark’s World Cup-qualifying beat down but, thanks to Kardashian’s tweet, a further 17,883,120 people were glued to the events in the Danish capital. Let's go Armenia!!! RT @phubbu05: @kimkardashian did u watch Armenia beat Denmark 4 nothing in a soccer game? World cup dream is still alive — Kim Kardashian (@KimKardashian) June 11, 2013
