About the Nation

The Imperial Commonwealth of Eastfield Lodge is a vast conglomerate of nations and states that resides almost entirely in a separate dimension to the reality you all know and love - a bubble universe would be an apt description (the why is a long story, involving the Dreamed Realm and a threat to the existence of the entire universe). The one bit of the country that lies in the regular dimension is a tiny island in the northern seas of the famous sporting region Rushmore, which serves as a transport hub for travel across the region by conventional transport, and for travel to the Imperial Commonwealth via something called a Void Ship (think of it like travelling through a well controlled wormhole).

The history of the country is long and complex, but the key overview is that it is a very socialist Muslim constitutional monarchy, with a noted reputation as being one of the nicest places to visit in the entirety of the known multiverse - the most recent WA census puts the Imperial Commonwealth in the top 100 nations in several measures such as Safety, Compliance/freedom from crime, Tourism, Weather, Compassion, Niceness and Environmental Beauty, amongst several others; most of which are also ranked as the best in the Rushmore region. Because of the initial portal, whilst humans are the overwhelming majority of the populace here, don't be surprised to find several other alien races and much advanced technology here.

Whilst we are a fairly chill nation, we are still fairly socially conservative, and there are plenty of special rules visitors need to be aware of:
  • No Alcohol. At all.
  • No smoking or recreational drugs at all. Visiting team members/fans will be given replacement/cessation therapy if struggling to cope.
  • No public displays of affection. What you get up to in the privacy of your own hotel room is up to you, as long as it stays there.
  • There isn't a legally enforced dress code, but at least dress respectfully, the locals will appreciate you.
  • Cities are by and large car-free zones; make use of the extensive public transport system.
  • Don't worry about a language barrier, there is an inbuilt telepathic translation circuit within the visas that you will be issued - it translates all speech and text into a language you understand instantaneously.
  • No unhealthy junk food will be available, the country is too healthy for that. Also, the food will all be halal, but there is an extensive range of vegetarian/vegan options for those who insist.
  • Ignore all the cameras and the police presence. They're for the safety of everyone.
  • High-level technology pervades every aspect of society and life here, get used to it.

There will be 8 stadiums in the Imperial Commonwealth of Eastfield Lodge used across the group stage, with each group being allocated two stadiums for the group stage, as well as two others that will be used in the knockouts. There are extremely good rail links between various cities which allow plenty of time to relax and recover between matches and journeys. The stadiums listed are below:

Group D:

Lodger City Memorial Stadium
Capacity: 150,000
Location: New Lodger City
Info: The national team's stadium and the crown jewel of stadia in the country, the Memorial Stadium is a state-of-the-art facility and was built on the grounds of the old national stadium following a disaster that levelled a large proportion of what was the former capital city. The stadium holds inscribed names of all the dead in that disaster - well over 5 million. The Memorial Stadium played host to the final of the 69th Baptism of Fire, and will host all Eastfield Lodge matches, up until the semi-final and the third place playoff.

North Bank Stadium
Capacity: 50,000
Location: Bridgetown
Info: Further down the banks of the Cillin River from New Lodger City, the North Bank is the largest stadium in the city, and plays host to midtable Premier League side Nile Bridge. It's a fairly narrow stadium, with tall, imposing stands very close to the pitch, which in itself is on the smaller side. Bridgetown itself, is a relatively old city, with plenty of history flowing through its streets.

Group E:

King Iqbal II Stadium
Capacity: 90,000
Location: New Lodger City
Info: One of two brand new stadiums in the city, the royally named stadium was built for the most successful team in the Eastfielder league, RGS Athletic, who along with their rivals had been using the national stadium as a temporary venue. This stadium has seen some of the most success of any domestic team in the country, even in its short life, and the visiting teams will hope that they can grab some of that success for their own.

Vorgan Park
Capacity: 85,000
Location: New Lodger City
Info: The other brand new stadium in the city, Vorgan Park is located in the city's largest suburb, one that mostly escaped the disaster that laid waste to the old capital. Home to VLC FC, this stadium probably has the best atmosphere in all of Eastfield Lodge, if not the wider Imperial Commonwealth. Teams playing in here will need to have the stomach to handle such a crowd.

Group F:

Parliament Stadium
Capacity: 80,000
Location: Lodgertia
Info: The biggest stadium in the country until the Memorial Stadium was completed, and second home of the national team, in the new capital of Eastfield Lodge. So named because it sits right next door to the Parliament of the Imperial Commonwealth, such that the Parliament even has viewing window onto the pitch exclusively dedicated to them. It is currently home to the lower-league pair of Lodgertia United and City, albeit still a fierce rivalry, but was also a temporary home for both RGS and VLC.

East Monksville Park
Capacity: 45,230
Location: Monksville
Info: The proud city of Monksville lies a fairly short distance from Lodgertia, but are nonetheless extremely fanatical about football, despite their teams' rather mediocre performances. League founders Monksville United are the occupants of this stadium, and claim to be one of the driving forced behind the unification of the Eastfielder footballing scene into what it is today. A city steeped in history with one of the oldest stadiums in the country, one to visit for any fans of sporting lore.

Group G:

Olympic Park
Capacity: 60,000
Location: Mount Salt City
Info: Mount Salt City will be the first city all visiting fans will experience, as the portal dividing the Imperial Commonwealth from the wider world opens a short distance from the city. The city played host to a regional olympics of an ancient and since-extinct place called the New Empire of Gallifrey, and has since been regarded as the heart of all sports (except football) in the country. The Olympic Park has seen footballing success as well however, playing host to top flight high-flyers Olympia FC.

Norrion Park
Capacity: 65,352
Location: Norrion
Info: Norrion are another one-team city, with Norrion Rovers capturing the hearts and minds of the city in their bids to uproot the old order. Norrion Park sits right in the heart of the city centre, and is probably its only major landmark - certainly its oldest. Definitely very partisan supporters, so this may be one of the most hostile atmospheres around. Be prepared.

Other:

Reynarn Arena
Capacity: 53,129
Location: Walston Brook
Info: Heading over to the northernmost city of Eastfield Lodge, we come to its biggest stadium, located a fair way out in the suburb town of Reynarn. Home to UR Town, the Reynarn has seen its fair share (read: pretty much all) of the controversy following the infamous matchifixing scandal that saw resident team UR Town forcibly demoted and gradually working their way back up. Recently refurbished however, so it is still a worthy stadium to visit.

Brook Stadium
Capacity: 45,323
Location: Walston Brook
Info: Home to Walston Brook Albion, the Brook Stadium has been the go to place for guaranteed Premier League football in the city, especially as of late, but it still remains a cold, imposing fortress, with a tiny pitch favouring the very defensive home side. Matches here need a lot of spark to light up the atmosphere, but if you can get it going, you will almost certainly have a 12th man behind your back.

The Hapilopper National Football Team
Image

Full nation name: The Dominion of Hapilopper
Trigramme: HAP
Nicknames: The Thrashers, The Haps
Team Colors: Blue, Green and White

Info:
The Hapilopper National Football Team is a relative newcomer to the world of international sport, but recently made quite a name for itself in the 70th running of the Baptism of Fire, a tournament for first-time national teams. That initial run was quite a shock to Hapiloppian observers, considering association football's standing in the pecking order of Hapiloppian sport, well behind auto racing, baseball, gridiron football, and wrestling. Under manager and head coach Thom Perkins, the Hapiloppians went undefeated in the entire Baptism of Fire, on the strength of loud, obnoxious play, physical defending and bold promises often kept. The team made quite a name for itself in qualifying for the 83rd World Cup. While they were not successful in their qualifying efforts, they sure came close, and a lot closer than a lot of people expected. The HNFT comes into the Cup of Harmony looking to become perhaps the first nation in history to win the Baptism of Fire and the Cup of Harmony in the same World Cup cycle.

MANAGER/HEAD COACH: Thom Perkins
Perkins, 53, was recently named the manager of the national team, and is known for his ability to rally a team together. The former manager of The Soldiers, Perkins rallied the troops together a year ago to help The Soldiers score the HFA Championship. Perkins likes to rely on an attacking form of football, and will likely rely on the 4-2-3-1 formation for most of the time. Perkins has received a vote of confidence following his ability to bring together players, some of whom didn't particularly care for each other, en route to victory in the Baptism of Fire and a great showing in qualifying for the World Cup.
Perkins's staff includes:
ASSISTANT MANAGER: Buddy Martinez
ASSISTANT COACH: Charles Waters
GOALKEEPING COACH: Duke Wright
TRAINER: Marc James
TECHNICAL DIRECTOR: Jim McNeil
PHYSIO: Russ Oliver

Typical Lineup:
Image

The Fans:
Typically, Hapiloppian fans, including the members of the "Traveling Thrashers" supporters group are among the wildest fans in sport, and promise to be exactly that for the World Cup. Expect to see fans dancing along to 1970s funk music, slamming drums as loudly as possible, waving their flags, and throwing streamers for every Hapiloppian goal. Hapiloppians like to have fun and they'll find ways to get under the opposing team's skin, within reason, of course. They travel well, they make the most of it, and they'll make your Cup of Harmony a memorable one, in a good way.

Uniforms:
ImageImageImage
From left: The team's primary kit, the secondary kit and the goalkeeper's kit.

These uniforms, as seen here, are the HNFT's designated regular season kits. Should Hapilopper, by some miracle, make the knockout stage of the World Cup, the team will unveil a gaudier, livelier uniform for its team to wear. These uniforms, the "playoff specials," are a Hapiloppian sports tradition, and a tradition held very dear since the early 1970s when the West Hampton Royals introduced the "playoff special" to the Hapiloppian sports culture.

TYPICAL STARTING PLAYERS:
#1 | Cooter Harris | Hapilopper City Soldiers | Goalkeeper
Cooter Harris, the captain of the Hapilopper National Football team, is the last line of defense for The Soldiers of Hapilopper City, the top team in Hapiloppian football. Considered the most effective goalkeeper in the top level of Hapiloppian football, Harris registered a remarkable one goal allowed per 175 minutes of play in last year’s HFA Championship, which helped The Soldiers win the title last year. Away from the pitch, Harris enjoys going off-roading in his 1979 Major M-200 pickup truck, hunting and listening to country music.

#2 | Nick Seward | United Hampton Cities | Defenseman/Right Fullback
Nick Seward, the right fullback of United Hampton Cities and of the national team, is one of the strongest defensemen in all of Hapiloppian football. His tackling ability from the right side of the pitch helped get UHC out of a few unfortunate situations, but unfortunately, that same tackling ability can go too far, as Seward is known for getting in card trouble. In fact, he was suspended twice last year due to yellow card accumulation, and unfortunately, it happened when UHC needed Nick the most.

#3 | Colin McLain | Hapilopper City Highway Patrol | Defenseman/Left Fullback
Colin McLain, the Highway Patrol’s left fullback, is one of the more aggressive players in Hapiloppian football, and one of the more temperamental players, too. McLain will tackle players with impunity, regardless of if the player actually has the ball, or if he’s going for the ball. McLain was given a straight red in Highway Patrol’s match against The Soldiers a year ago for clotheslining striker Ernie Stevenson, precipitating a large-scale brawl between the two clubs. McLain has been warned by the Hapilopper Football Association to be on his best behavior.

#4 | Scott Dukes | Kingsland Warriors | Defenseman/Centerback
Scott Dukes, one of two centerbacks for the national team, is the Kingsland Warriors’ top defensive man, but he typically plays on the left side of the pitch. Dukes has been asked to move to the center position, and has been extensively practicing from the center of the pitch. One of the cleanest defensivemen in Hapiloppian football, Dukes has been asked on multiple occasions to turn up the aggression, and hopefully he’ll do exactly that on matchday for the Hapiloppians.

#5 | Nathan Ellis | FC Buckridge | Defenseman/Centerback
Nate Ellis, FC Buckridge’s ill-tempered centerback, was a late addition to the team following injuries suffered by Garvinson defenseman Paul Dibble. Ellis is an aggressive defensiveman, but is known just as much for fits of anger, most notably last year when he kicked UHC midfielder Steve Erickson in the stomach in retaliation for Erickson diving in an attempt to draw a foul. Ellis was given only a one-game suspension, likely due to the fact that, yes, Erickson had very obviously dived, something the HFA has been trying to stamp out.

#6 | Pancakes Taggart | Capital City United | Defensive Midfielder
Richard “Pancakes” Taggart, a defensive midfielder for Capital City United, one of Hapilopper City’s multiple football teams, is the first line of defense for Capital City, and can kill the momentum of an opposing team’s offensive run. Taggart got his nickname after eating 25 pancakes in one hour at an International House of Flapjacks on the outskirts of Hapilopper City.

#7 | Doug Morse | FC Buckridge | Midfielder
Doug Morse of FC Buckridge has taken the #7 position following an injury to Kelvin Beverly in a West Hampton Sports Club match against West River. Morse, at 22 years of age, could be one of the new starts of the future for the HNFT, is known as a player that can stop offensive momentum when needed. Occasionally drives dirt late models at his hometown dirt track.

#8 | Murray Hunnisett |West River FC | Central Midfielder
Murray Hunnisett, the younger brother of HC Nationals star third baseman Leroy, is a central midfielder for Hapilopper City’s West River Football Club and the national team. Hunnisett can attack, and has three goals to his credit, and he can defend, getting the ball away from carriers at the first instance. Away from the pitch, Hunnisett is known as a ride-share driver on the “Mega” rideshare service around Hapilopper City, benefitting the “Drink, Drive and Die” campaign to stop drunk drivers in Hapilopper.

#9 | Steve Erickson | United Hampton Cities | Playmaking Midfielder
Steve Erickson of United Hampton Cities is a playmaking midfielder and striker, but is being used as an offensive midfielder for the national team. Erickson scored 19 goals last year for United Hampton Cities, but is unfortunately known for his tendency to “simulate” injuries at convenient times that may draw penalties. In other words, he’s a flopping jackass. This flopping drew the ire of Buckridge defenseman Nate Ellis in a match last year. Ellis and Erickson were jockeying for position. Erickson hit the deck. Ellis turned around and kicked Erickson in the stomach. Needless to say, the two didn't like each other until they were brought together for the Baptism of Fire.

#10 | Bobby East | Garvinson Trojans | Attacking Midfielder
Bobby East, Garvinson’s quiet attacking midfielder, is one third of the “Midnight Express” trio that led the small-town Trojans to a stunning second place in the HFA Championship. East, more commonly known as “Beautiful Bobby,” leaves the talking to his teammates and is just happy doing what he does on the pitch. Known as one of the nicest players in Hapiloppian sport off the pitch.

#11 | Ernie Stevenson | Hapilopper City Soldiers | Center Forward
Ernie Stevenson, the younger brother of racing driver Drake Stevenson, is one of the top strikers in all of Hapiloppian football, scoring 33 goals last year for The Soldiers en route to their HFA Championship a year ago, and has likely scored more goals than any single player in the 70th Baptism of Fire. Stevenson is a strong center forward and can bring the ball into the net from any angle. Away from the pitch, Stevenson and his wife, Wendy, lovingly take care of four dogs – a bulldog named Willie, a terrier named Drake, a Labrador named Precious and another bulldog named Princess.

TYPICAL BENCH PLAYERS
#12 | Rufus Weeks | Hapilopper City Highway Patrol | Center Forward
Rufus Weeks, the Highway Patrol’s chief striker, scored 26 goals last year, primarily from point-blank range. Rufus, known as “Judge Weeks” by the Highway Patrol’s fans, is one of the biggest showboats in Hapiloppian football, and his goal celebration commonly consists of him pointing at the goalkeeper and shouting “GUILTY AS CHARGED!” for whatever reason. Unfortunately, Weeks is also known for his diving, which put him down to fourth on the four-man depth chart on the national team as the HFA has tried to stamp out diving as much as it could.

#14 | John Cornett | Garvinson Trojans | Center Forward
John Cornett, Garvinson’s foul-mouthed striker, scored the second-most goals last year, scoring 31 goals as the Trojans finished 2nd in the HFA Championship. Cornett can be a threat from all sides of the pitch. Cornett, meanwhile, has an unfortunate reputation as one of the most ill-tempered players in all of Hapiloppian sport. Two years ago, Cornett was suspended for half the season for threatening to ram a broken beer bottle up a rear orifice of a referee. Rumors also exist of a video of Cornett threatening a drive-through worker of a Fat Chuck’s Tasty Fried Chicken restaurant.

#15 | Patrick Morris | Pinkerton City SC | Forward
Pat Morris, one of Pinkerton’s top strikers, scored 23 goals last year, but was put #3 on the striker’s depth chart due to the diving of teammate Rufus Weeks. Morris is a threat from primarily the right side of the pitch, and defenders would be very smart to trap him on the left side, as his usefulness typically goes downhill very quickly on that side of the pitch.

#16 | Stan Long | Garvinson Trojans | Playmaking Midfielder
Stan Long, one of Garvinson’s “Midnight Express” trio, is the more charismatic of the two Midnight midfielders. Long, a creative playmaking midfielder, will elude defenders any day of the week and twice on Sunday as he sends the ball to John Cornett for a Trojans goal. Reportedly has a black belt in karate.

#17 | Brandon Herbert | Peoria City FC | Midfielder
Hybrid defensive-offensive midfielder Brandon Herbert is a multi-purpose threat for Peoria City. He can either stop an attack or he can start one. How he plays depends on the players he’s with, and Peoria City is not known as one of the top teams in the HFA Championship. However, experts agree that their poor standing is in spite of Herbert, not because of it.

#18 | Steve Swindlehurst | Raceway Football Club | Midfielder
Steve Swindlehurst, who can be placed anywhere ahead of the midpoint of the field, is a strong midfielder for Raceway Football Club in Buckridge. Swindlehurst actually scored two goals last year in incredibly lucky circumstances, one from 55 yards out when nobody was paying attention.

#25 | Clive Blackburn | Hapilopper City Soldiers | Defenseman
Clive Blackburn, a right fullback for The Soldiers, is a strong defenseman and will likely be named as a constant bench player, eligible to be subbed on. Blackburn, 29, is one of the more efficient defensive players in Hapiloppian football.

#28 | Donnie Armistead | Hapilopper City Highway Patrol | Defenseman
Don Armistead, left fullback for the Highway Patrol, will also be considered as a bench player to be subbed on. Constant injuries have plagued Armistead’s career, and this alone has placed a question mark on his playing time.

#30 | Rod Hughes | United Hampton Cities | Goalkeeper
Rod Hughes, the second-string goaltender for the national team, is a strong figure in front of the net, and is also a strong figure to keep the team motivated. Hughes registered one goal allowed per 143 minutes last year.

#35 | Paul Garrod | Washington FC | Defenseman
Paul Garrod, centerback for Washington FC, is on the team primarily as a last resort. Garrod was one of the last players selected to the national team. Expected to receive very little playing time in either the BoF or the World Cup qualifiers, and if he does make it in, it will be after the game is out of reach for either team.

#37 | Peanut Carlisle | Surrey United | Defenseman
Peanut Carlisle, another centerback for Washington FC, could see some time on the bench and potentially some limited time on the pitch in the later minutes. Carlisle is known for being one of the biggest country bumpkins on the national team, and has been asked to curb his chewing tobacco habit.

#60 | Colt Delaney | West Hampton Sports Club | Goalkeeper
Colt Delaney is the third-most efficient goaltender in Hapiloppian football, registering one goal allowed per 141 minutes last year. Delaney, however, has been also plagued by injuries and his playing time could be non-existent.

#75 | Eli Tyrrell | Surrey United | Midfielder
Eli Tyrrell was added to the Hapilopper National Football Team following the injury of Kelvin Beverly and the promotion of Doug Morse to a starter's role. Tyrrell is a roughhousing midfielder and can take the ball away just as well as can run with it. Eli is also known to be one hell of a scrappy player and will try to find a way to make a starting lineup or two based on will alone.

Denonym: Busogans/Busoga Islanders/Islanders. Busoga Islanders is the formal term; many Banijans call them Busogans, while locals refer to themselves simply as Islanders, which will be the terminology used by the journalists of this country.
Association: Busoga Islander Soccer Association(BISA)
Manager: Starfire (Pegasus - female), 48 years old, native of the Equestrian States. Starfire is a manager who excels at getting the most out of whatever she's given, regularly keeping the Ponyville Galaxy from relegation with a keen eye for tactics and seemingly boundless optimism that keeps spirits up in the locker room. Starfire was Moon Dust's long-time student as an assistant coach at Ponyville United and pundits tend to think more highly of the pegasus than her club's place in the table might suggest. She has been largely popular so far as the Islander manager, and after a surprising playoff run in World Cup 83 Qualifying, she is all but guaranteed after this Cup of Harmony to be offered a long-term contract extension by BISA.
Senior Assistant Manager: Yamma Mbye. 40 years old, doubles as the new executive director of the Busoga Islands Regional Youth Academy. Spent the twilight of her professional career when she was part of a wave of Banijan female players that went to the Equestrian States, playing for the Manetreal Impact. Just announcing her retirement from the playing scene at 36, she was hired quickly by Starfire to be the Assistant Manager, and they had a good working relationship at the latest AOCAF. She said that connections they shared within the Equestrian States, as well as her own connections in the Busoga Islands, would allow her to be an 'invaluable asset' for the transition.
Captain: Marie Sonko
Alternate Captain: Berihu Abeselome.

Select Player Biographies

1. CB Marie Sonko

The heart and soul of this team, the man who has long been a legendary footballer in this country, Delbin Kasekende, the goalkeeper, retired after the previous Cup of Harmony. He played for local club Dukuma SC for many years, and then changed to Herzegovina City FC, where he established almost a vice grip on the BSL Golden Glove award, as well as winning a host of league titles under Brian Emerson and being one of few men to be captain for both his club and his country. Not an easy feat, and he was the country’s inaugaural captain- even after having played in a World Cup for another side.

Kasekende, however, is 39 years old, and retired from national team duties when the Busoga Islands were eliminated by Saltstead at the Cup of Harmony. However, while sad for him, the show must go on. The armband was passed to an obvious contender- Marie Sonko, the center back who plys her trade in the Equestrian States. The Northern Moravica grad has long played for Everfree Forest HC in the Equestrian States, manning the center back position for the club. Denied an opportunity to play in her home country while Banija’s sports gender segregation laws were on the books, she has stayed loyal to the club that has given her the opportunity to play in the top flight, declining an opportunity to go to Lakiska SC and stick it out at Everfree Forest.

She captained the steady back line at AOCAF LVIII. While the team finished in last place in their group, they did open the tournament with a 1-0 win over Ko-oren, and only allowed 3 goals in the group stage. They then rode to new heights in World Cup Qualifying, leading a stingy defense to allow only 13 goals over 12 qualifying, amid a surprise run to the playoff. After a surprising World Cup qualifying campaign, where they rose 24 places in the KPB rankings, this team is absolutely ready to make a deep run in the Cup of Harmony.

2. RB Berihu Abeselome

With the retirement of Kasekende, Abeselome is now the oldest player in the Starting XI. Beyond that, he's the only player on this squad who has been to a World Cup, being on the World Cup 80 squad for Banija, though he did not get any minutes in that tournament.

He's spent the majority of his professional career playing in the Crystal Empire, starting for Crystalopolis City, regarded by many as the class of the United League. He was an obvious choice to be one of the key players on this squad- Starfire has seen him play, up close, as she has managed Ponyville Galaxy. He is now the alternate captain for the team. While it is unlikely he will ever wear the armband for the national team, he is one of the squad's most passionate players, and helps provide stability in the back.

He will be a threat, and a force, for the team. Now, of course, at age 33, he is much less of an attacking threat- which means that there will be less counter-attacking from this side in general. But still, the wily veteran wing back is expected to both be and remain a dominant force on the back line for the Busoga Islands, as they attempt to keep climbing up those World Cup rankings.

KRYTENIA 2266 WORLD CUP OF HARMONY SQUAD
Modifier: +3


THE MANAGEMENT TEAM

Manager – Alexander SAMPSON, Age 60
Former assistant boss and Krytenian international back in the day, Sampson took the reigns halfway through the Dragons' Matchday Eight game agaisnt Garifunya in World Cup 82 after Valrauncion's infamous meltdown. A disappointing AOCAF campaign, however, means his own position will be under scrutiny.

Assistant Manager – Jonathan KERR, Age 44
Goalkeeping Coach – Marcus BAILEY, Age 61
Defensive Coach – Alfie XOUSA, Age 62
Offensive Coach – Graham OWENS, 49
Physiotherapist – Victoria BARCA, Age 49


THE SQUAD

Image
Marcus WASHINGTON
Age: 33
Position: Goalkeeper
Club: Ousevale Borough

Washington's cat-like reflexes are the stuff of legend. Don't let the fact he's only 5'11” fool you.

Image
Thomas SCOTT
Age: 32
Position: Right-back
Club: Emberton Reds

More of a wing-back than a full back. What he lacks in pure speed is made up for in intelligence.

Image
Christopher JOEL
Age: 31
Position: Left-back
Club: Mercia Bromham

Built like a sprinter, and able to move the ball at speed. Doesn't shy away from the tackle, either.

Image
Gareth BRANNAN
CAPTAIN
Age: 30
Position: Centre-back
Club: Ashton Olympic

Built like a boulder. Not the fastest in the world, but when he challenges for the ball, you'll know about it.

Image
Matthew GRAY
Age: 32
Position: Centre-back
Club: Emberton Reds

Tall and rangy, Gray complement's Brannan's strength with wiry speed. Perm would be reminiscent of Colin Ulvæus if it wasn't the wrong colour.

Image
Murray SCHWARZKOPF
Age: 30
Position: Central midfield
Club: Stanton Town

The crew cut belies this no-nonsense midfielder's mindset.

Image
Jake HANSEN
Age: 27
Position: Left midfield
Club: Royal Emberton

Elder of the Hansen twins, by a whole seven minutes.

Image
Joe HANSEN
Age: 27
Position: Right midfield
Club: Royal Emberton

Younger of the Hansen twins, by a whole seven minutes.

Image
Chris NAISMITH
Age: 33
Position: Forward
Club: Ousevale Borough

Definitely a chip of the Ousevale striker block. The gaffer is proud.

Image
Joshua COQUELIN
Age: 28
Position: Forward
Club: Casuals Osteria

The Cock may have high-tailed it back to Starblaydia, but we still have The Coq.

Image
Selaphiel KENNEDY
Age: 23
Position: Forward
Club: Stanton Town

The Kennedy dynasty continues as young Selly follows in the footsteps of Gabriel, Raphael, and Uriel in breaking into the national team. Why this lot are still all loyal to the Dockers is anyone's guess, mind.

Image
Stephen MARINER
Age: 22
Position: Central midfield
Club: Mercia Bromham

A midfield general more mature than his tender years.

Image
Pablo IBANEZ
Age: 29
Position: Goalkeeper
Club: Avidia City

No relation. Thankfully.

Image
Malcolm AITKEN
Age: 34
Position: Right midfield
Club: Caledon Simpson

Diminutive but tricky winger, has matured with age without losing too much pace.

Image
Will VASSER
Age: 32
Position: Right-back
Club: Casuals Osteria

Agile if not the fastest. Likes to jockey and prevent rather than commit to the tackle.

Image
Freddie HAMES
Age: 33
Position: Central midfield
Club: Mercia Bromham

At ease in the middle of the park or just behind the forwards.

Image
Rafael MENDONCA
Age: 19
Position: Forward
Club: Avidia City

Promising young striker with a keen eye for goal. One for the future.

Image
Callum SCOTLAND
Age: 24
Position: Forward
Club: Ousevale Borough

With one descendant of a famous Krytie striker, why not another? Naismith's club team-mate and a opportunistic striker, with a lineage going up to the great Darren Scotland.

Image
Ellis DUCAINE-PETIT
Age: 31
Position: Centre-back
Club: Caversham

Solid centre-back, ridiculous name.

Image
Miguel TORRES
Age: 31
Position: Centre-back
Club: Avidia United

Stocky and solid in the tackle. Suffers a bit with the aerial game though.

Image
John BURTON
Age: 31
Position: Left midfield
Club: Leston Town

A lover of the early cross to the far stick.

Image
Anthony BODZA
Age: 27
Position: Goalkeeper
Club: Dereapolis City

Will relish a chance if Washington falters.

Image
Hywel AP HYWEL
Age: 25
Position: Left-back
Club: New Cefn Albion

Young intelligent defender, a biggish fish in a small pond. Suffers from having unimaginative parents, á la Mitchell Mitchell.

Manager - Rabbie Travers - 54 years old
Travers takes the reigns from Godefroy Abascal and will set about getting the All Greens back on track. The biggest change Travers has instituted is a larger focus on the team's mental preparedness. As such, Travers has added a Psychologist to the team staff. Beyond that, Travers has experimented with a return to the classic 3-5-2 during the team's pre-qualifying camp. The main reason for this has been the overload of talent in the left center-midfielder position.

Tactics
Formation: 3-1-4-2
Style Modifier: +3
Image
Darmen will alternate between the counter-attack and possession oriented football. When counter-attacking, play will likely begin with the defensive-midfielder winning the ball and making an outlet pass to one of the outside midfielders. While not out-and-out wingers, they have many of the same qualities and will use their pace to make their way down the touch-lines before crossing into the box. The strike partnership will always be defined as having one target man and one poacher. Atypically, it is the target man who will score the majority of goals, while the poacher and potentially a midfielder will take shots should any subsequent chances present themselves. However, if either of the outside midfielders are stopped before they can make their crosses, Darmen's chances of attacking will disappear for the near future as the team regroups into its defensive formation.

When playing with possession, it is the goal of the Darmeni midfield to lull their opponents to sleep by stringing together large sums of passes. Against highly ranked sides, sequences of 20-30 passes being strung together before the ball even enters the final third are common. Against lesser ranked opponents, its not unheard of for the team to string together 40-50 passes before going forward to attack the goal. Additionally, any of the Darmeni midfielders may choose to show off an individual skill, for instance they might hold the ball loosely in front of them, inviting an opposing player to make a tackle, before attempting to nutmeg that player as they arrive. Such antics are rare however when facing tougher opponents. While dominating the possession can often frustrate the opposition and cause them to lose concentration, it can just as easily make the All Greens fall asleep themselves and become vulnerable to the counter-attack. Either way, it is almost a certainty that one of the goalkeepers will be called into action, it's only a question of which one.

Defensively, man-to-man marking of the main attacking opponents is the preferred method of limiting the amount of saves the Goalkeeper is needed to make. The defensive-midfielder operates almost like a sweeper, only located in front of the back line rather than behind it. On corners and free-kicks, Darmen will exclusively mark their opponents man-to-man, zonal marking is considered too unreliable.

Team Roles
Captain: Alberich Goldschmidt
Vice-Captain: Silver Abbey
Left Corner: Alberich Goldschmidt
Right Corner: Alberich Goldschmdit
Penalties: Craig Blackwood
Free-kicks: Alberich Goldschmidt

Team Personality
The Darmeni team will never argue with the referee. Indeed, if anything needs to be brought to the attention of the referee it will be done by either the Captain or Vice-Captain in a respectful manner (or to the fourth-official by the Manager). With regards to foul/dirty play, the Darmeni team will not provoke, or retaliate against any opposition player. Darmeni's expect each team to keep to itself and deal with its own trouble makers; any opposition player who attempts to prevent a conflict by pushing or pulling a Darmeni away from the scene will be promptly told off, as that is the duty of the Darmeni Captain.

Nonetheless, Darmen will play in a relatively aggressive manner. Tackles will be conducted in a way which ensures the opponent ends up on the ground, but causing injury will be avoided as much as possible. On set pieces, Darmenis will stand their ground and will not be easily pushed around, they will not however engage in hugging. In fact, if any opposing player tries to push past them, it is not uncommon for the Darmeni player to feign resistance before simply stepping aside and watching as the opposing player stumbles past on their way to ground. This occasionally backfires however, as the referee may mistake the incidence as having been a foul in the box.

NEWMANISTAN ROCKETS

OFFICIAL CUP OF HARMONY 75 ROSTER


Starters:
GK: #1- Ryan McNamara (24, Tundra Falls Mariners)
– A taller keeper that prefers to rely on instincts. Is often aggressive towards the shooter, and this has seen him have success, especially while at the Proving Grounds. He is not as successful in road games, but is still considered the best keeper in the nation.

LB: #2- Tim Marley (26, Jessicaville Millionaires)
– An average frame, but an overall high work ethic. Very good with his overall positioning, and is not often going to be faked out by an opponent. Though he can be outmuscled.

LCB: #4- Scott Corellis (26, Pocono City Capitals)
– Complements Marley in that he is the strength on the left side of the defense. That is the thought process anyway, because these two have never actually played together before.

RCB: #5- Adrian O’Bryan (29, Loudon Leopards)
– An intelligent defender, but sometimes a little too overconfident. While he knows the game very well, and is very studious when watching game tape in preparation, he trusts himself a little too much.

RB: #3- Shawn Stoddard (24, Centralia Cougars)
– While Corellis is a strong player, Stoddard is the most physical of the group. He will not be shy to be aggressive towards the opponent and figures to lead the club in bookings. A fan favorite in Centralia.

LM: #8- Jorge Cortez (25, Pocono City Capitals)
– Excellent two way player, that will both score goals and be one of the first ones back to defend. He has very good chemistry at home with Scott Corellis, and it should be expected that they will hook up once or twice for a goal.

CM: #9- Tyrone Vannella (27, Springfield Thoroughbreds)
– Has blazing speed and a ton of talent. Unfortunately, he is also known to be an arrogant player, and some players on the team might not be thrilled he is on the team. He’ll be the last one to show up at practice, and the first to leave. Not a fan friendly player, either.

RM: #12- Jarrell Connolly (25, Putnam Lake Eagles)
– Playing in Putnam Lake, where soccer is the most popular within Newmanistan, Connolly has a lot of pressure on him. Thankfully, he has always been able to handle that. He’s played with Vannella before, and despite their differing personalities, they have been known to play well together.

LS: #10- Brent Chapman (23, Tundra Falls Mariners)
– Has a hard shot and is very accurate with it. He’s not going to do much else for the team, though. Can be beaten by a strong defender.

ST: #15- Jerome Beyer (26, South Charlotte Condors)
– An astute passer, Beyer will be looking to set up either Chapman or Schaefer, or another Rocket more then he will be looking to put shots on goal himself. Very creative with the ball and getting by defenders.

RS: #11- Derek Schaefer (25, Southport Tigers)
– Figures to be the team leader in goals. While Chapman has a harder and more accurate shot, Schaefer has more overall skill that will allow him to get more shots on net. He’s no slouch with his shot power or accuracy either, though.

Regular Substitutes:
GK: #21- Aaron Scarpa (29, North Charlotte Wildcats)
CB: #6- Calvin Douglas (26, South Tier Seagulls)
CB: #7- Thomas Caprotti (25, Loudon Leopards)
MID: #13- Dirk Donato (26, Dover City Mountaineers)
MID: #17- Samantha Paschke (28, Olympia Gladiators)
ST: #14- Jimmy Halligan (25, Jessicaville Millionaires)
ST: #16- Antonio Cruz (22, Penthoria Riverman)


Reserves:
GK: #25- Jesse Gallant (26, Olympia Gladiators)
CB: #22- Edward Molander (29, Springfield Thoroughbreds)
CB: #23- Eli Watson (24, Brighton Bulls)
MID: #18- Peyton McLeod (24, Nashua Broncos)
MID: #26- Saquon Shields (26, Loudon Leopards)
ST: #19- John Baker (25, Pocono City Capitals)
ST: #24- Shane Shuster (18, Daytopia Racers)

Manager- Miguel Hernandez (49, Jessicaville Millionaires)
Formation: 4-3-3
Skill Modifier: +1
Uniforms: Home- Sky blue with white trim; Away- Black with sky blue trim; Keeper- Yellow with sky blue trim. If conflict- White with sky blue trim

Los Alrededores favours a 4-2-2-2 'magic boxes' formation. Wingers are encouraged to make attacking runs into the opposition half, and cross into the 18-yard box. This style of play puts large amounts of pressure on an opposition's back line and takes full advantage of any structural weaknesses.

Port Emberian National Football Team - Official Team for Cup of Harmony 75

Image


Port Ember

Nickname: The Tridents

World Ranking: 99

Style Modifier: +3

Formation: 4-4-2

Home Stadium: Waterstad International Stadium

The Port Emberian's national football team represents Port Ember in association football and is controlled by the Port Emberian Football Association, the governing body for football in Port Ember. Port Ember's home ground is the Waterstad International Stadium, located in the Waterstad Borough of Port Ember Megalopolis. The team is currently under the charge of Stuart Baker, who was appointed as Team Manager for the duration of 2018 - 2022.


Team History

This Port Emberian Football Team is unique in its history and situation compared to other nations. Due to the reason that Port Ember has not yet competed on the international level in football, the Port Ember Football Association (PEFA) made a controversial decision by not picking established club players for the first international team.

Instead, a Youth Program was launched, forming a large group of school children from the age of 14, whom underwent a 04 year training regimen under the tutorship of renowned international coaching staff. Four years later and the result is a young passionate team trained to international standards, instead of the internationally untested Port Emberian methods.

The aim of this enthuisiastic program was twofold:

- Create from scratch a young, energetic and passionate team to international standards, uninfluenced by the decaying and untested Port Emberian football standards, allowing them to grow in the intetnational scene, for many years to come due to their young age, maintaining consistency, team spirit and constant growth and development.

- Allow these young players to form part of the national clubs after their initial training and baptised world tournaments, allowing their experience and skills rub off on the new local talent, which in turn will transform the entire football industry for Port Ember in the long term.

The team has managed to win 8 of 10 total matches during the Baptism of Fire 70 tournament, and have reached third place overall. They have build a massive and passionate supporter base during the tournament.

They then partook in the World Cup 83 Qualifier Run, which admittatly did not go too well. They finished in position 4 of Table E, with 3 wins, 5 draws and 4 losses. They however did make a name for themselves against veey tough opponents and have managed to be invited to the Cup of Harmony 75.


Team Tactics

Prefered Formation: 4-4-2

Style Modifier: +3

The team has quite an unique playstyle, reflecting much on the genetics of the average Port Emberian. They prefer a fast, aggressive and hard game, playing to their benefits of being a athletic and powerfull race.

Their 'Signature Play' is an interesting one, which can almost be seen as a gamble. A possibly effective gamble however. They would bait the opposition to push far ahead to their goal area hard, to lure most opponent players into their half of the field. Thereafter the strong and aggressive defence would steal the possession from the opponents, and powerfully kick the ball deep to the other side of the field, where the Port Emberian strikers would use their athletisicm to chase down the ball in a counter attack, outrunning the majority of the opponents, and pushing hard until a goal is scored. It is due to this playstyle that the local sportswires have dubbed it a "Aggressive Counter Attack Style".

Backroom Staff



Team Manager: Stuart Baker.

Stuart Baker is appointed as the Team Manager / Head Coach, who was in charge of the Youth Program since its inception, giving him 5 years of experience with his young team. Before this appointment, he was the national coach for Braziliztan for 4 years, which is now a colony of Port Ember. He is passionate about the sport and even more so about his young team, refering to them as "his kids". He was critized by the media during the Baptism of Fire 70 Tournament for his perceived arrogance during Pre-Match Interviews, however he did apologise for this and appears more humble. He was praised alongside his staff and team to have ushered in a 'Social Revolution' which have caused the birth of Football Passion within Port Ember.

Assistant Head Coach: Connor Davies.

Connor Davies worked as the assistant head coach for Braziliztan for four years under Coach Stuart Baker, before moving over to the Port Ember Youth Program alongside Stuart Baker. He is a very technical coach, regarding the sport as a science instead of a sport. During the Baptism of Fire Tournament, the importance of bench players was realised, therefore Connor focuses mainly on developing the bench players during training days, while still filfulling his traditional assistant coach duties. This tactic seemed to have paid off during the WCQ, giving the team better depth and tactical choices during games.

Defensive Coach: Daryl House.

Daryl House was the previous Head Coach of the Port Emberian club 'Waterstad Pirates', before joining the youth program in 2014. Many sports publications have praised his technical knowledge as a defensive coach, and many believes he is a possible future head coach in the making due to his keen eye and attention to detail. Due to the poor performance of the backline in the opening stages of the Baptism of Fire league and WCQ, get its quick recovery into a world class backline has placed the spot light on Daryl, with analysts feeling he needs to prove his worth, now more than ever.

Attacking Coach: George SinClaire.

George was the previous Head Coach of the Port Emberian club 'Gold Coast Raiders', before joining the youth program in 2014. Many sports publications have praised his technical knowledge as a attacking coach, and is well known for his passion and short temper, on and off the training field, regularly landing him in trouble with the law.

Goalkeeping Coach: Jonathan Peters.

George was the previous Head Goalkeeper (player) of the Port Emberian club 'Gold Coast Raiders', before joining the youth program in 2014. Many sports publications have praised his newly found talent as a coach instead of a player, allowing his students to gain valuable skills. He has received much acclaim due to the great performance that the team's goalkeepers have displayed in the Baptism of Fire and WCQ.

Fitness Coach: Neil Strauss.

Neil Strauss was a former Mixed Martial Arts Sensei who have trained a dozen champions before joining the youth program in 2014. Many sports publications have praised his vast knowledge regarding human physiology, which he uses to optimise the fitness levels of his players, to almost miracle like levels. The Port Emberian side was clearly the fittest team in the Baptism of Fire, and Neil has received much acclaim for it. He is the 'Most wanted for an interview' in the fitness media at the moment.

Team Doctor: Dr Toby Curtiss.

Doctor Curtiss is a qualified medical doctor who specialises in sports injuries. He has vast medical experience, which he gained as a truama surgeon during his service with the Port Emberian Special Forces. He is well known as a brilliant doctor and as a 'no nonsense hardass' when it comes to his work.

Massage Therapist: Sally Jones.

Sally Jones is a young and passionate massuese who is well known for posessing 'Magical Hands'. She has been with the team since the inception of the youth program and have been with the team during the baptism of fire and WCQ, keeping the players fresh and ready for their games on such a tight schedule.

Physiotherapist: Dr Jolene Michels.

Dr Michels is an experienced Physiotherapist known to be extremely caring of the players in the teams, sometimes described as a 'real life empath'. She owned her own practice before joining the youth program at its inception. She worked hard during the Baptism of Fire and WCQ to ensure her players did not succumb from minor injuries, and kept them fit and healthy.

Postby Flavovespia » Fri Aug 30, 2019 6:25 am

Introduction
After what on paper looked like a somewhat average qualifying campaign for Flavovespia's first foray into international football under that name iteration, Nick Cole and the Hornets have done enough to earn themselves an invite to the Cup of Harmony 75. Eastfield Lodge & Damukuni. The Rushmore and Esportiva nations respectively host this edition of the secondary tournament to the World Cup. For a nation like Flavovespia, unranked at the start of qualifying, and provisionally around 100-150 in the updated rankings, it's an impressive achievement to make it to this stage.

Kit
Flavovespia have gone with a relatively simple design that is reflective of the nations colour and new flag. The double V is incorporated as a design element across the top of the shirt. Predictably the home shirt is yellow, and the FFA have gone for a black away shirt with a white 3rd kit. The goalkeeper's kit (unpictured) is green with the double V as well, and the goalkeeper will use one of the 2 change kits in case of a clash.

Both home and away kits are registered with black shorts and socks, with a small amount of yellow trim on the cuffs. A reverse set, yellow with a little bit of black trim are registered as alternatives in case of a shorts and socks clash, thus the home and away shirt can be paired off with the default black or alternative yellow shorts and socks. The white 3rd kit will be with white shorts and socks, and is the choice if there is a clash with both the home and away kits, or Flavovespia has a kit clash with the home side and is playing in a hot climate.
ImageImageImage



Roster
For the Cup of Harmony, the same 23 man squad from the World Cup Qualifiers will be used. The primary difference will be the formation though, the 4-2-3-1 originally used at the start has now been replaced with a 3-5-2/5-3-2 setup. Whether or not the outside players on the wings should be classed as defenders or midfielders is a matter of some debate, although the stats book tends to show them as midfielders. The setup can be deployed in a defensive manner against stronger sides, or as a more attacking setup if there's space to be exploited out wide.

Name Age Position Number Club International Caps (Goals)

David Meehan 28 GK 1 Bavingtor 5 (0)
Pretty much considered the undisputed top goalkeeper in Flavovespia currently. He signed for Bavingtor in 24AU, having been back-up at Waldster FC. He then stunned everyone with a string of amazing performances which took Bavingtor to a Super League title as a newly promoted team, an achievement never before seen.
Meehan is a great shot stopper, but that in itself isn’t why he’s considered Flavovespia’s number one. His distribution both from dead ball situations and live play is second to none, and many a counter attack were started by Meehan keeping his head up and spotting an outfield player in space to launch a devastating attack. With Flavovespia making their debut internationally, expect his danger to start a counter attack to appear against stronger opposition.

Ronald Maddox 27 DEF 2 Marthorpe City 11 (1)
Signed from Kings Lunsel in 23AU, Maddox rewarded his new side with some strong games to help them win their most recent league title in the same year. The left-sided left-footed defender has been a cornerstone of the Marthorpe City defence for a fair few years now, and no doubt hopes to help them return to their past glories, or at the very least international club football.
Typically Maddox is deployed as a left wing-back at club level, using his pace to cover off wingers and to get the ball downfield when in possession. Selected to be part of a 4 at the back squad, he will be taking a more defensive role in some games for Flavovespia. At the age of 27, Maddox will hope to use his peak years to try and lock down the #2 jersey for himself.

John Calvert 35 DEF 3 Apsbrooke 11 (1)
The oldest outfield player in the national team, but called up into the starting XI anyway. Calvert left Hadford Hill on a free transfer after many years as a tough rock in the defence. Many wondered if the centre back would call it a day there, but he went to Apsbrooke and showed just what he was made of, propelling the small town side to an impressive 5th in the Super League, and showing he still has at least another year at the top of his game.
Calvert is very much an old school centre-back. He isn’t one for fancy play at the back, his aim is to get the ball and get it away, and that he does very well. A commanding figure of significant strength and experience, he will use every part of that he can muster as he steps up for what could be his one and only international call-up.

Neil Wright 23 DEF 4 Stanmorn 6 (0)
From the Stanmorn academy ranks, Neil Wright has played a big part in the title-winning squad of Stanmorn. As an academy player, there is no greater feeling than lifting a trophy with a team that awarded a player their first professional contract.
Lining up usually in the centre of a 5-3-2 setup at Stanmorn, Wright will need to use his natural talent to deal with the change of setup he’ll experience. Wright is a strong defender, make no mistake about that, but also shows an unusual tenacity at the back in playing with the ball at feet, often linking up with the midfield in Stanmorn, and isn’t known to be a hoofball merchant. It will be interesting to see how with Meehan in goal and alongside Calvert how Wright will perform.

Stephen Shepherd 25 DEF 5 Waldster 4 (0)
A Waldster youth academy player, he broke into the first team at the age of 20, and was one of the regulars who made up the unbelievable Waldster squad of the early 20’s, managed by Nick Cole. Waldster haven’t quite hit the same heights in the last few years, but they are still a very formidable side, not least with the likes of Shepherd on the team.
Shepherd plays as a right-back or right wing-back at club level. During Nick Cole’s time, he’s played a more defensively minded right-back role, although the last 2 seasons under new management he’s been asked to overlap out wide. It’s likely he’ll be deployed defensively for Flavovespia, and his good positioning and intelligence, something younger defenders don’t always pick up should help him avoid shipping too many goals.

Henrik Jensen 31 MID 6 Langmere Green Rovers 11 (1)
Jensen has been at Langmere Green Rovers since 19AU, signing from a relegated Capton Club. Since then he’s been a key player for the solid Super League outfit, seeing the team win a few Gold Cups in recent years. The midfielder will look to try and use these years to cement a place in the squad at least for a few more tournaments.
Jensen was once described as “a centre-back who happens to play as a midfielder”. Often deployed in a defensive midfielder role, Jensen is always itching to chase down and tackle playmakers and creators of opposing sides, a key disruptor for his opponents. His main skill is in the tackling and stamina department, and expect to see him drop deeper if there are defenders making a move forward.

James King 28 MID 7 Stanmorn (vice-captain) 12 (3)
A one club player, King came through the Stanmorn youth setup, and it was a joyous moment when he lifted their first Super League trophy last year. Captain of Stanmorn, he has been given the vice-captain role of the national side, and has shown in the last few years why he is one of Flavovespia’s top midfielders.
King is a classic playmaker, his best attributes are in having the vision to spot the right pass and the technique to execute. King is very much one of the wiser heads both on and off the pitch, he plays with a delicate and mature touch that has served Stanmorn very well. He is set to play a slightly deeper regista role for Cole’s setup, one that he should be able to adapt to.

Jonathan Feld 24 MID 8 Marthorpe City 4 (0)
Signed from Loxthorpe Rovers as a teenager, Feld helped lead Marthorpe to the 23AU Super League title. Having shown that his potential could be realised into true talent, Feld has become one of the most well known midfielders of Flavovespia, and will be pleased to be in the first 11 at just 24 years old.
Feld can play on the left or on the centre, typically in a more attacking midfield role. He is strongest on his left foot but still has a good right foot. Cole’s system will most likely see him deployed on the left of an attacking front 3 behind a lone striker. Feld will be on the left flank with club teammate Maddox, and the attacking setup of the team should make defending tough with multiple attacking outlets.

Andrew Mason 27 ATT 9 Stanmorn 12 (5)
One half of Stanmorn’s brilliant attack that won the most recent Super League, Andrew Mason has been a staple of the Stanmorn attack since signing from Bavingtor in 23AU. Mason has played in a variety of attacking setups over the years, but is most often deployed at the front of the line, looking to get his head to balls in the box, and also to be a physical presence.
Mason’s best attributes are a fiercely accurate finishing from his head and foot. Not a striker who’s keen on mazy dribbles or fancy footwork, he is the stereotype of a poacher. Often posing a physical threat to the defence, expect him to be the target in a high ball approach, and look for him to lay off through balls in a ground attack.

Ramon Martin 29 ATT 10 Langmere Green Rovers 6 (0)
A long serving player for Langmere Green Rovers, signing in 18AU having not made it through the Waldster youth system to a professional contract with them, he’s become a popular player at the club. Martin’s thick facial hair and steely expression makes him look like a tough centre-back or a strong forward, but his looks are deceptive, he’s a quick striker, who can use pace as a way to break down the defence.
Martin is set to be deployed as more of an attacking midfielder than a true striker in Cole’s setup. The pace he possesses could pose a risk to the defenders, and he also has the vision to keep the play alive in the box, rather than rush the opportunity. With a lot of competition for places up front in the squad and the whole nation, he’ll be fighting hard to get the #10 jersey.

Steven Hall 25 MID 11 Hadford Hill (captain) 12 (6)
Captain of Hadford Hill, having joined from their youth ranks, and now captain of the national side, Steven Hall is undisputedly one of the best players in the entire nation. He’s turned down big money to stay at his childhood club, and is considered a great personality, on and off the field, perfect leadership material.
Hall perfectly plays the “Raumdeuter” role. A player with a brilliant right foot and a strong left foot, he drifts out wide on the right, just looking for the space. Then he tries to break clear to get in a shot or a cross, and his impressive goals and assists record is a testament to his ability to do both. Hall will hopefully play a pivotal role for the Flavovespian side in the next decade.

Conor Harrington 36 GK 12 Apsbrooke 6 (0)
When he left Waldster on a free transfer at the end of 24AU, it looked his career was in a swansong, even when Apsbrooke took a punt of him. Now, after some brilliant performances in 26AU, he’s been called up to the national side despite being 36 years old. He’s claimed he can go until he’s at least 40, although to do so in the national team is a big ask.
A very old school goalkeeper, don’t expect to see Harrington play out with the ball at his feet. He’s much more of a launch it down field type of keeper, focusing more on effective shot stopping and positioning, with his experience also giving the back line confidence when he’s on the pitch. He will also pair up with fellow veteran Calvert of Apsbrooke as well, the pair bringing a maturity that’ll help the younger players of the squad.

Patrick Cannon 33 DEF 13 Hadford Hill 7 (0)
A Hadford Hill defender for 6 seasons now since signing from Binclestead Wood, Cannon is a real defensive rock. A veteran player now, despite age taking toll on his pace, his positioning and strength can more than make up for that, and he’s always willing to get stuck in against the wingers of the opposition.
Cannon plays left-back, but is not at all attacking, and can slot in to the centre-back spot. Strength and tackling are his key attributes, and expect him to be brought on or used in games where Flavovespia are more content to sit back and try and defend instead of playing with attack from the back.

Mark James 29 DEF 14 Marthorpe City 9 (0)
A recognisable face in Super League football with his long hair and headband, Mark James has had an interesting career. A Marthorpe City youth player, he joined Waldster at the age of 23, but then rejoined Marthorpe City 3 years later. Since then he’s been one of the key defenders for Marthorpe, and has done well to get a national team call up.
A centre-back, James is a tall and strong defender. Not one for fancy footwork or dribbling, he employs a no-nonsense approach that Cole seems to favour. Team mate to Maddox and Feld, it will be interesting to see how they play in a setup that isn’t that similar to that of their club side.

Tony Gardner 23 DEF 15 Kings Lunsel 10 (0)
Coming from the youth ranks of Kings Lunsel, Gardner is recognisable with his distinctive ginger hair, and played an instrumental part of their title win in 25AU. One of the youngest players to be called up, Gardner will be happy to make the squad, and has potential to do so for many more years if he hits his peak.
A central defender officially, he can also be deployed as a defensive midfielder. Whilst his age doesn’t give him the experience and defensive skills of some of the team, he has relatively good skills on the ball for a defender. He could well be utilised in any game where Flavovespia look for more playing out of the back than aggressively launching long balls.

Stephen Moore 26 DEF 16 Loxthorpe Rovers 11 (0)
Signed 2 seasons ago from Rumlington Rovers, Moore has stepped up very well in the Super League and has been rewarded with a call up to the national team. With experience in a back 4, and playing as a more attacking right-back in that formation, Moore fits the bill of the squad setup, even if some may suggest he got somewhat fortunate to be called up.
Moore strongest attribute is probably his acceleration and pace. Outright tackling and crossing isn’t his forte, but he knows he can deal with those if he can outpace and opponent. Loxthorpe Rovers deploy a 4 at the back with defensive midfielders setup, so positional issues won’t be a problem for Moore. An interesting call-up certainly, this tournament could be make or break for his international career.

Simon Davison 27 MID 17 Waldster 2 (0)
Signed in 26AU from Vale by Waldster, Davison was a key player in the centre midfield of Waldster, as they narrowly fell short of a title. A Vale supporter, it was especially tough for Davison to see rivals Stanmorn lift the trophy. Nevertheless the midfielder will be pleased to be recognised as a talented player deserving of a call up to the national side.
Playing in the centre, distribution, passing and vision have been the key attributes of Davison’s talent. Not quite on the same level as King, Davison will still want to prove to be an effective substitute option, and could also feature in a change of formation for Flavovespia. In the prime of his career, Davison needs to prove himself to get as many caps as he can.

Jordaan Wolfson 31 MID 18 Kings Lunsel 4 (0)
Nicknamed “Moustache Maestro” by his club, Wolfson has been a part of Kings Lunsel since being a youth player, experiencing the success of the last decade and a bit with the side as a professional player and as a fan of the club he plays for. A tenacious midfielder, it pleased many to see him get a call up to the national team.
Another central midfielder, albeit more defensively minded than attackingly minded, Wolfson has good positioning and awareness to try and control the midfield battle. Jensen got the nod for the #6 jersey, but Wolfson is almost a like for like replacement, and expect him to come in at least a few times if rotation is a key part of the qualifying game plan.

Charles Winward 25 MID 19 Stanmorn 4 (0)
Winward was part of the title winning Stanmorn squad, a new signing from Butterfield Rovers FC. Starting almost all games, he made many key appearances, however some critics feel like his call up was more of a reflection on the success of Stanmorn than his talent, although others view that as a cynical verdict.
A left-winger, Winward would most likely slot in to the attacking midfield left position for the national team, but could be the first choice for a conventional left midfield position if a change in formation happens. Reasonably pacey, he’s good at getting in a cross and playing through balls, although unlike some midfielders nowadays, finishing is not his forte.

Thomas McDonald 34 ATT 20 Waldster 2 (1)
Striker for over a decade at Waldster, signing from Stanmorn in 16AU, part of the legendary 22AU triple winning side with almost a 1 goal per game ratio, McDonald is one of the most famous Flavovespian players of the last decade. Maybe he isn’t quite the top player he was now he’s reached 34 years old, but a call up for him was well respected by many.
McDonald always tends to play at the top either as a lone striker or in a pair. He’s not a massive creator, and is no longer particularly pacey, but his shooting technique is still second to none, and if given too much time on the ball, will absolutely punish the opposition defence. Expect him to receive some caps as a reliable experienced striker.

Guoliang Fu 29 ATT 21 St Astons City 6 (0)
Fu is definitely one of the most journeyed players of the national team, the only one to play not just in the 3 professional tiers, but the 2 semi-pro tiers, working his way up as a part-timer in his teens to signing for St Astons in 22AU from Sporting Towerhaite. Fu was a bright spark in St Astons disappointing season last year, and it will be interesting to see if he’s got the talent to stay in the national side.
Listed as an attacker, Fu is just as much as a winger than a striker. His favoured position is out wide on the left, such that he can cut in and drill the ball with his right foot. Likely to be an option in the 3 behind the striker for Cole’s setup, Fu could prove to be somewhat enigmatic for the national team.

Scott Coleman 22 ATT 22 Stanmorn 12 (6)
Coleman was once known for his long hair and photogenic looks, but winning the title for his beloved Stanmorn, where he came through the youth system was a dream come true for Coleman, only matched by a national team call up. The young striker has always been linked to other sides, but it remains to be seen it that ever comes to fruition.
Coleman is one of the fastest strikers in Flavovespia. His technique is slightly raw at the moment, but when he can create many one-on-ones, that doesn’t hinder his goalscoring record. He played alongside Mason in a front 2 for Stanmorn, but for the national side without a change of formation he’d probably drop into any of the 4 attacking options, albeit with a preference to play in the centre or the right hand side.

Nicholas Dobson 24 GK 23 Loxthorpe Rovers 1 (0)
Standing at 2 metres and 100kg, Dobson is a seriously imposing figure as a goalkeeper. Some have suggested his goalkeeping skills are simply down to being so large it’s hard to find a place to put the ball past him. The 3rd choice goalkeeper position was always going to be hard to fill, with as many as 8 of the starting 16 Super League keepers linked to a national team spot, but Dobson makes it in.
Unsurprisingly not agile, Dobson makes up for that with good positional skills, and a long throw and clearance. As 3rd choice keeper he is unlikely to start, but at 24 may still make the national team for future appearances.

Nick Cole 42 Manager
Nick Cole was a relatively average footballer, having a few brief years at Waldster, before a career as a bit of a lower Super League/upper Challenge League journeyman, with stints at Sporting Towerhaite, Westwood Garden City and Bavingtor FC, before returning to Waldster as a coach. After the sacking of their previous manager, Nick Cole took over as Waldster manager for 21AU. There, he finally achieved what Waldster fans had dreamed of, winning their first ever modern era Super League, and in 22AU followed it up with a domestic treble. He remained slightly less successfully at the club until 25AU, at which point the FFA appointed him the first Flavovespia national team manager.
Cole is one of the managers who isn't afraid to mix up roles and formations if he feels an edge can be gained. He has shown a tendency to substitute players out of positions before, and although he has a couple of base formations, at times his teams can transition into more unorthodox roles, especially for the defensive midfielders, wing backs and attacking midfielders. An invitation to the Cup of Harmony will most likely see Cole guaranteed another few tournaments as the Flavovespia manager.

Code: Select all
Flavovespia was formally known as Greater Watford internationally, but Greater Waldster internally. Referring to Flavovespia as a continuation of it's former name is acceptable, but all statistics kept by me, such as caps and goals are starting afresh for Flavovespia.

Flavovespia's current year is roughly somewhere in the 2020's in terms of technology, so things like 5G, autonomous transport and more integrated automation and AI is present, but other than that is largely similar to modern day Earth. The team of Flavovespia and the population are all human. In terms of national culture, it is most similar to the United Kingdom, with the native language of Flavovespia being English.

The current year in Flavovespia is 27AU (27 After Unification), with BU (Before Unification) used for years before 0U. In terms of timescale, 0U is roughly analogous to 2000 in the real world, with 27AU around 2027 then in terms of technology.

Mattijanan Roster and Information for Cup of Harmony 75

The Story So Far


Despite a series of fairly average results in the World Cup, Mattijana have risen to the position of regional heavyweights within Esportiva. Successive bronze medals in the 20th and 21st tournaments were finally broken by a second-place finish in the 22nd addition, despite a 5-0 drubbing by Brenecia in the final. They finally claimed the big one last time round though, beating the same opposition by 2 goals to 1, winning their first tournament in the process. Despite missing key players, the squad backed up that result at CE 24, beating Damukuni in the third-place play off to win another bronze medal.

Despite continued regional success however, the country, including Dusan Vukoja's employers at the MattijanaFusBand, have become increasingly unhappy with Mattijana's dismal attempts at qualifying for a World Cup and despite a decent fist of it in which the team threw away their chances of a playoff with a 0-0 draw at lowly Saintland, Vukoja resigned before he got the chance to be sacked. There has been a hefty amount of turnover in the squad in recent months and the team has been rocked by the departure of all-time scorer Mathilde Lekarisa to birth-country Saint Émelie.


Team Info

World Rank: 60
Esportivan Rank: 4
Style Modifier= +1.5
National Association: MattijanaFusbalBand (MFB)
Kits: Image


Formation

Head Coach: Zala Stefanidi

Assistant Manager: Dominik Samikov (FK Burges)

The assistant manager at Championship leaders FK Burges hails from the North-East of Mattijana and began his career at Dinamo Legisaw, another division 2 side before then moving as one of the tactical staff to FK Burges, where he has since worked his way up the pecking order to assistant manager. He has an excellent tactical mind as well as good player welfare skills and helps out Ljubanik in both management areas. He has so far proved himself to be a capable aid.

Head Scout: Marcel Kuzbacher

Marcel Kuzbacher is a seasoned scout, mainly plying his trade for the famed Puljanka Academy. He has links with numerous players in the Mattijanan squad as well as the under-21 side and makes up the 3-man selection panel alongside Samikov and Ljubanik.

Fitness Coordinator: Jelena Neumanič

Jelena Neumanič is responsible for the diet and fitness of the squad, freeing up the main management team to think about tactical matters. She has a solid variety of exercises and is well-known for getting on player's backs if they don't keep up with their expected effort levels.

Psychologist: Samira Kazmir

Samira Kazmir is an experienced sports psychologist who has done work for both the summer and winter Olympic teams, the Mattijanan ITT side and the MRT motor racing team. She is responsible for the mental welfare of players, stretching from the collective mind-set to more personal issues for each individual in the squad. It's a far-reaching and often complicated task.

The Medical Team:

Head Doctor: Dr Charlotte Smitič
Assistant Doctor: Dr Mattias Buranov
Physio: Martina Laramazič
Physio: Mika Glasnić

The Players:
GK-Lucija Handanovic-#12-Age 28-FK Revinka
Understudy to Matej Handanovic for most of Ljubanik’s tenure, Lucija is again favourite to start between the sticks for Mattijana in the upcoming qualifiers. The 25 year old has impressed for club side Revinka in the recent season with both solid performances and heroic clean-sheets and will be tricky to keep out of a starting place.

LB-Helena Neumann-#2

The Burges Player is a regular in the championship leading side and will provide a good defensive option with the occasional run forward to help out the wingers. Barring any injuries or unlikely suspensions, she will play all of Mattijana's matches,

CB- Rikard Illicić-#14
The first Mattijanan player to move abroad, specifically to the top division in Buyan, Illicić was widely expected to replace Edvard Crajasović in the starting lineup on the retirement of the ledgendary centre back and now has. He is modelled in a similar style as his predecessor too. He's big, he's strong and despite being slower than other defenders, he is able to stamp his authority on attackers with some gritty tackles.

CB-Katija Burnisevič-#4-Captain

Another Burges Player, Burnisevič is a potential answer to Crajasović's clumsiness and is a quick, skilful and sure-footed player capable of taking the fight to those attempting to run through. She is a dedicated player, happy to chase any lost cause until the ball crosses the line. Her lack of physical strength may be her weakness however and she could be a potential target for more powerful strikers.

RB-Kevin Krychowiak-#13-Age 24-Matbirjke
Another promotion from the under 23s, Krychowiak is a typical modern full-back with his pace and attacking mindset. Having succeeded Dominik Illisevic as first-choice full-back last cycle, he will need to build on some shaky performances against the pace that the world has to offer if he is to retain his place on the teamsheet.

LM-Sophia Velezia-#16
A mazy winger with less raw pace, but the ability to turn any defender into a messy knot, Velezia is a constant challenge to keep quiet on her day and normally gets through at some point if she hits top form. Her mercurial nature is her biggest and arguably only weakness, but Mattijana will be well-placed if she can get it together.

CM-Marko Hojbjerg-#7

Now a mainstay of the team at the age of 27, Hojbjerg is a playmaker with good awareness and passing ability and is the perfect fit for Ljubanik's technical brand of football. Useful for connecting the more attacking players ahead of him, he is also integral in providing the start or the killer pass in a counter-attack. When no forward options are available, he's not afraid to hit one and occasionally finds the back of the net from improbable ranges.

CM-Katarina Jakupovic-#15
Former captain of Mattijana’s under-23 side, Jakupovic is a part of Vukoja’s turn to a more attractive style with Jago Adrianov, the midfield enforcer out and the instinctive passer promoted to a starting role. The 25 year-old Snezn player has impressed with both her technique and maturity in the early years of her career and is touted as a future Mattijanan captain after a successful run in the Under-23s.

RM-Jessika Struna-#9

A pacey winger who's preferred play is to make a run and then a cross, the 28 year old Struna is a dynamic and different part of the Mattijanan team. Tipped for a move to Petrovijanka or Burges, Struna chose to stay at Revinka, close to her family and in the town she loves.


CAM-Mattias Hoffman-#8-Age 26-Rapid Petrovijanka
Hoffman established himself as an impact player during the 79th cycle, scoring twice from the bench and making a substitute appearance in 15 of the 18 games. He offers a dynamic and direct approach when required and has cut open tired defences on a number of occasions. His consistency across longer periods has so far kept him out of the first team, but he remains a very useful and versatile player for Vukoja.

FW- Kara Lorenzič, age 24, Matbirjke

With Mathilde Lekarisa departing the Mattijanan setup in favour of the warmer climes of Saint Émelie, Matbirjken youngster Kara Lorenzič has been thrown into the starting line up for Mattijana. The pacey, direct forward was introduced on numerous occasions during World Cup qualifying and played reasonably well, offering a threat from the incisive through balls of the midfield and the testing low crosses of her wingers. Despite that, she is still young and the shoes of record scorer Lekarisa are big ones to fill.


The Bench:
GK-Matej Handanović-#1
The 31 year old Mattijanan number 1 plays under Matej Ljubanik at FK Petrovijanka and has been a solid, if unspectacular option between the sticks for most of his career. He has good handling skills and makes few mistakes, but could be replaced if he fails to make the spectacular stops expected of him. He may also face renewed competition from the younger and more dynamic Martin Vaskaric.

RB-Dominik Illisević-#5

Now a regular for FK Puljanka, Illisević is a punchy and pacey player with outstanding fitness and good crossing ability. His defensive technique is the biggest question mark, but if he can have a solid match at the back, he will undoubtedly be a danger coming forward.

CB-Ana Sevastova-#27-Age 22-FK Snezn

Young north-easterner Sevastova is the stereotypical centre-back from her region. Tall, strong and tough as ice, she has worked her way into the starting line-up at Snezn and with the retirement of Edvard Crajasovic, has now earned herself a call-up to the national side. Provided Illicic and Burnisevic remain fit and reasonable in form, she probably won't make too many appearances this cycle, but is certainly one for the future.

LM-Sofiane Bisrali-#6
From the less familiar setting of Shalkar in the South-East, Bisrali has the pace and skill that Vukoja is looking for in his wingers. Replacing the mercurial Sophia Velezia in the starting line-up, the 24 year old has a lot to live up to early in his career, but has the chance to do it on the biggest stage.

CAM-Juliana Kjofmann-#22-Age 26-Weststrand FK

Kjofmann, heralding from the windy climes of the Mattijanan west coast, has learned how to play with the ball on the deck and has made her strengths count at local team WestStrand. She might not pull off all her passes, but the ones she gets right will be enough to cause problems for any opposing defence.

FW-Andreas Weiss-#11

The 32 year old Burges Striker has been a fixture in the Mattijanan team for a while now and has matched his performances for the national side with consistent scoring form for FK Burges. He is a poacher with the ability to be in the right place at the right time for any pull-back into the box. Also a good header of the ball, Weiss will be an intimidating target for high crosses if the Mattijanan plan-B is needed.

ST-Daniella Alaba-#18-Age 28-Puljanka
It is difficult to tell where Alaba's strengths really lie as she is relatively quick, but not lightening fast and despite good strength, she is no match for more bulky defenders. Where she is effective is as a goal poacher, using positioning to find space to latch onto crosses and loose balls from fairly close range.

The Reserves:

GK-Martin Vaskaric-#19-Age 23-FK Antalja
LB-Lara Ljunavic-#20-Age 29-FK Revinka
CM-Jasmina Kovac-#24-Age 21-Ljubala FK
FW-Matej Jokic-#26-Age 20- FK SavaFluss

About Mattijana!

Mattijana is a large safe nation in Esportiva with a significant, but proportionate population. It spans a fairly large range of climates with the far north a colder area, the central region temperate, the south Mediteranean and the South-East semi-desert. Petrovijanka, the setting for this competition, is located almost exactly in the centre of the country at 214-232 metres above sea level. It has summer highs of around 28°C and lows of -5°C in the winter. There is a high level of sunshine for most of the year with precipitation mostly snowfall in the winter months.

Culturally, Mattijana can also be divided into six regions. The West of the country is largely Germanic whilst the centre North is a mix of Slavic and Germanic cultures, centred around Mattijana's second city, Burges. The North and East are more Scandinavian and speak Dansk, a language similar to Danish. The Centre (where Petrovijanka is situated) and the South are Slavic (similar to the Slovenian and Croatian cultures). There is an Arabic community in the South-East.

All Mattijanans speak the official language, Mattijanan. However, due to this not being spoken anywhere else in the World, English and German are well-spoken throughout the country whilst Arabic is taken on by the most intelligent students (in addition to English and German) as well as by those in the South-East.
There is no official religion in Mattijana due to this mix of cultures. Islam is popular in the South-East and parts of the South whilst some in the East follow the Mattijanan Orthodox church. Most people hold no religious belief, but believe in the universal philosophy of being kind, welcoming and helpful to others, known nationally as Jelenara. Even in religious communities, it is these principals that are most talked of with religious figures used to preach them.
Due to the mix/match nature of Mattijanan cultures and these philosophies, religious symbols are uncommon and religious tolerance is very high.

Attitudes to drink and sex are fairly liberal whilst there is good gender, sexual and racial equality. Social mobility is also good and the rich earn only twice as much as the poorest. Cannabis and similar recreational drugs are banned by law, with cannabis also forbidden for medical use.

The government follows mildly socialist policies meaning the tax rate is fairly high, but schools, hospitals and other public services are all well-funded and either free or reasonably-priced. Taxes on large businesses are higher than on small ones. The government building is the MattiStaja, which is situated on Staja square in the centre of Petrovijanka. All six regions have their own smaller congresses however. Politicians are generally appreciated and although public decisions are limited to elections and important political decisions where the main population is the most affected, most citizens feel well represented due to the numerous meeting and discussion opportunities with their local politician.
All parties follow a similar philosophy, but mainly disagree on where to fund the most. The MattijanaLeušaBuro is the current elected party and have an emphasis on public services, but other popular parties are the ViroBuro (who generally promote the needs of the environment) and the NašinalBuro (who promote funding for employment opportunities).

About Terre Septentrionale:

Terre Septentrionale consists of 20 Townships (Cantons) and a federal district. Terre Septentrionale is located on an island in the northern part of the globe and the climate is similar to a ReallifeStates nation called "Iceland". In summer, the weather ranges from 0°Celsius (32° Fahrenheit) to 20° Celsius (68° Fahrenheit). Terre Septentrionale was discovered during the 16th century by French explorer Jacques-Cartier and was colonized in the 17th century by French, English, Polish, Croat, Slovene, Magyar, Spanish and Czech peoples. After some fights, the eastern part of Terre Septentrionle was a French colony and the western part, a Polish colony. The eastern part got it's independence from France in 1792 while the western part became independent from Poland in 1907. East and West Terre Septentrionale united in 1957 and it's now a single nation on the island.

Terre Septentrionale, once a catholic nation, is now one of the most secular nation in the multiverse. The "loi pour la laïcité" (secularism bill) was passed in the '90s and since then religious signs are illegal in the nation. In Terre Septentrionale it's illegal to wear a veil, an hijab, a burka and however they call it. It's also illegal to display any religious sign, such as catholic crosses, in public and religion is now looked with disdain.

History of Soccer in Bolgano
In Bolgano Soccer is the national sport since almost everyone plays it, the first leagues were Amateur, the first professional league has just started with Fedek ASS champion and classified to the UICA Champions Cup, In another place the national team of Bolgano debuted in the Callerftd Cup (a regional tournament that ceased to exist) with Vigo II and Eelem Talem being second in the first edition and third in the second, both were won by Eelem Talem, their first big tournament was the Baptism of fire where they fell in the first round of Playoff, in the 83 World Cup, they were in Group N, failing and finishing sixth.

Best Players
Tom Evans: He is the top scorer in the history of Bolgano, started playing at 5 years in a team in his neighborhood, at 12 years the Golden Region gets it and signs his first contract won 4 Youth Leagues with Golden Region, debuted in the first team at 17 against Walters FC making a double to overcome a 1-0 to a 2-1 and then left three-time champion of the "Bolgano Amateur League" at 22 years signed to the Fedek ASS achieving 4 historical titles
Daniesl Frizzel: The 9 of Bolgano of only 20 years did not have a good past, they were poor and his parents feron murdered, Frizzel spent a great time alone until his grandfather took him to live with him, he started playing with Tom Evans in the team of his Barrio, but he did not go to the Golden Region youth but to those of Fedek ASS, winning 4 Youth Leagues and 2 Bolgano Amateur League and the first Bolgano SuperLeague, at 18 he discovered that his parents were still alive and currently they are together.
Riot Birgot: Birgot one of the best players in all of Bolgano, but this is the best midfielder, with his good eyes for tactics, centers, dribbles and long passes this is a great support player for Bolgano's offensive team, he started playing The 4 years in his school team, winning all kinds of tournaments at school and interscholastic level, was in the youth of Golden Region joined Tom Evans but not together because of his age, he has never won a league but if the domestic cup
Red Nines: Bolgano's best goalkeeper, unlike the others, started in the Walters FC Juveniles at age 8, this player from a young age had great reflexes as a goalkeeper, in his debut in the national leagues was in the KAC FC of the second division, because they wanted to prove it in a minor division, they only managed to score 9 goals in 28 games remaining champion and being their only title at the moment.

CoH75 Roster

Postby Squornshelan Remnant States » Fri Aug 30, 2019 5:22 pm

Squornshelan Remnant States Black-and-Reds Roster
The Story So Far:
Of old, there was the Imperium of Squornshelous, rapacious, tyrannical, and presumably still out there behind some self-imposed wall of isolationism and ill humor. Despite its many flaws, it was a powerhouse of international football, qualifying for the World Cup 36 times in 37 attempts, and lifting the trophy in the tournament's 31st edition. Some 85 years ago, all that came crashing down. Riots after an early elimination from World Cup 41 proved the spark that set off a long overdue revolution that eventually saw the western half of the country, largely composed of conquered lands and separated by sea from the Squornshelan mainland, break away to form a democratic state: the Confederacy. This state rejoined the international community after several decades of isolation, and also reinstated the old tradition of football. Making its debut in Baptism of Fire 68, and finishing respectably despite failing to qualify for World Cups 81 and 82, the Confederacy has risen rapidly upward through the rankings to the present day. Many believe that the upcoming cycle will see our return to the Group Stage, and the ascension of this nation to the upper echelons of international football is viewed as an inevitability by some of its more hubristic citizens. The team is known for a style of play that is certainly more on the defensive side, but is far from simply parking the bus.

Despite putting together their best record in terms of points earned percentage, the campaign to qualify for World Cup 83 must be regarded as a failure and disappointment for the Black-and-Reds. As the second seed in Group H, they finished behind both the top seed, The Holy Empire, as well as the third seed, Siovanija and Teusland, failing to reach the playoff groups as expected. Indeed, there were expectations that the Black-and-Reds might continue their modestly overachieving ways of the previous two cycles and win one of those groups. Instead, managing a scant 18 goals through 12 matches, the attack let the stingiest defensive performance in the group go to waste. Now this roster, rich with international experience and with a few players potentially making their final appearances in a WCC tournament, must prove that it can do more than just win the easy matches, but also win a few it shouldn't. Donnell has left her final 23 largely unchanged from those who played through qualifying, setting the stage for either a great redemption, or a disaster.

Manager: Bethany Donnell (BRE)
A very down-to-earth manager who drills humility and discipline into her players, making sure they do the hard yards and don't get carried away with their status. After she was let go midway through her second year at Northern Union, the SCFA extended an offer based on the promise of her seasons spent at Pikemouth. There, she was able to build a smaller club into a consistent lower-league challenger, and the hope is that she can do a similar job with the still fledgling Black-and-Reds. She is viewed very positively in the Confederacy by both fans and SCFA leadership, having delivered a Round-of-Sixteen appearance in her competitive debut at the 6th IAC Championship, and leading the Black-and-Reds to within three points of qualifying for the 82nd World Cup. The optimism that most have had in Donnell during her tenure has, if not faded, grown a bit strained, as the Black-and-Reds failed to make the qualifying playoffs for WC83. Suffice it to say, she is under a fair amount of pressure for a good showing at the Cup of Harmony.

JOSHENIA FOOTBALL FEDERATION PRESENTS:

The Joshenian Mens Football National Team To The Cup of Harmony 75


At the start of the World Cup Qualifiers, the Joshenia team had a fresh new squad and a new manager in Swen Schultz who is a former national team player. With new tactical ideas, Joshenia was assured of getting a playoff spot. However the World Cup Qualifiers were terrible for the Golden Eagles as the defence were poor during the later stages of the second half leading to draws. This being the first Cup of Harmony for the Golden Eagles they hope for much but to perform better than they did in the World Cup Qualifiers and save face after their disastrous World Cup Qualifiers campaign.

Full Name: Kingdom of Joshenia
Nickname: Golden Eagles

Style Modifier: +2.75
Manager: Swen Schultz ( Former Captain of Joshenia in WC 81 and 82)

  • Halku Orantez (CAM, N17, A31) Another talented number ten, but he is past his prime, can't stay on the pitch as long as he could before.

    Wingers
  • Tanel Tayman (LM, N7, A27) talented and quick dribbler, makes a lot of assists.
  • Enzo Amor (LM, N77, A21) A failed wonderkid, very talented but doesn't have a professional attitude, plays because nobody else can.
  • Reki Reizo (RM, N20, A28) Technically strong right midfielder that is good at shooting and long passing, doesn't dribble as much as Tayman.
  • Egan Duman (RM, N61, A26) A carbon copy of reki reizo, can be swapped and nobody would see the difference.

    Strikers
  • Ante Nekir (ST, N9, A24) Striker that can fire rockets with both feet. has good movement to make up for his lack of pace.
  • Paletar Soros (ST, N11, A25) Tall aerial threat. has great chemistry with Nekir.
  • Federik Umar (ST, N21, A29) Quick striker, doesn't get played much since he can't link up with Nekir.
  • Uras Timider (ST, N88, A22) A supersub, can be really effective off the bench but can't play 90 minutes.

Cup of Harmony Squad Announced


Image


by the editors

World Cup qualifiers are now behind us and sadly the national team did not qualify, though to do so in their first ever attempt would have been rather extraordinary in their difficult group. However, their stronger than expected performance earned them an invitation to the Cup of Harmony where they will compete alongside other teams that failed to qualify for the World Cup but managed to earn an invite from the host nations. Bekir Altingunes has opted to keep faith with the players who performed so well in the qualification campaign as well as the starting XI that he returned to in the final matches.

The kits shall be the same as the ones provided to the team in their qualification campaign:

Image


This is our revised view of the squad and the stadd in light of their performances in the qualification campaign:

Coaching Staff:

Manager: Bekir Altingunes
Age: 46
Bio: While his appointment was one that initially generated a lot of questions as to the seriousness of the Football Federation and the government with regards to the professionalisation of sport in the country. Bekir Altingunes has proven to be an effective leader and more than competent manager. While the team initially struggled (though still exceeded expectations) in the first half of qualifying he orchestrated a masterful unbeaten streak in the second half of qualification even if the team didn't quite manage to pull itself over the line. He's been given a much freer hand with this tournament with expectations essentially being "Put on a good show" Something this team with an average of 3 goals per match in the qualifiers was never unable to do.

Assistant Manager: Senol Tarimcioglu
Age: 61
Bio: A statistician by trade, he was the director of football at league champions Hisar FK. His analytical insights have provided Bekir Altingunes with a squad that is greater than the sum of its parts, a key thing for a team that is just starting out on the international stage. With limited data he was able to put together a squad that reached the quarter finals of the Baptism of Fire and put up 20 points in their first ever World Cup Qualifier campaign (that total would have been good enough to reach the playoffs in 6 groups).

Players:

Goalkeepers:

1. Saban Inekci (Hisar FK) Caps: 12
Age: 30
Positions: GK
Bio: Despite some turbulence at the position and an apparent falling out with Bekir Altingunes, a late campaign return to the starting role saw him perform extremely well behind a better organised defence. Now firmly back into the starting role his task will be to keep a hungry and ambitious young goalkeeper in the form of Iskender Nur from taking his recently recovered position.

12. Iskender Nur (Altin Akademisi) Caps: 8
Age: 20
Positions: GK
Bio: He had a decent stretch as the starter during Saban's falling out with the management. He performed admirably behind a defence that struggled to find any kind of stability and despite the goals he conceded (and the number he conceded) he was still an effective and capable goalkeeper. Far from the slacker he was commonly expected to be he has shown a rapid development that should make him a hot commodity with some more match experience.

23. Hasan Kocaeli (Demirspor) Caps: 1
Age: 41
Positions: GK
Bio: Once again occupying the third goalkeeper role for what will likely be the final time, he will yet again act as more of a player-coach than a pure player but will likely be a perfectly adequate player if called upon. Surprisingly fit and capable for his age, even if his hair is graying slightly as his years advance.

Defenders:

2. Ozbek Sarikaya (Uryanspor) Caps: 20 Goals: 0
Age: 32
Bio: One of the team's most consistent performers, in his 20 starts he's only had one match which could be described as sub-par and it was immediately rectified in the following match. While he isn't the fastest or the strongest and he's a little short even for a full-back, the mental side of his game is so well developed that he manages to overcome these limitations. He has repaid Bekir Altingunes' faith in him over and over and there's no reason to believe he wont continue to.

3. Eyup Mustafa (Almat JK) Caps: 13 Goals: 0
Positions: DC, DR
Age: 28
Bio: Eyup is capable of playing both centre-back and right full-back, but will be employed primarily as a centre-back at international level. He won the starting spot at the beginning of the qualifiers from Tuna Rustemoglu and had his fair share in the struggles that the defence went through during the qualifiers. As the less technical of the two centre-backs he will be on the right side of the central defensive pairing, but he will certainly be more uncompromising with opposing attackers than he was in the past.

4. Osman Hasanoglu (VC) (Hisar FK) Caps: 17 Goals: 1
Positions: DC
Age: 31
Bio: Despite participating in some of the worst matches for the national team's defence, Bekir Altingunes trusts his Vice Captain and with good reason. Despite the collective unit's poor play and his own struggles he still commands respect. A positive passer of the ball who can take the ball out of defence as well as bring solidity when needed, he will continue to be a key figure for this Cup of Harmony and likely beyond.

5. Gokdeniz Dag (Uryanspor) Caps: 20 Goals: 0
Positions: DR
Age: 25
Bio: A solid performer like his teammate on the opposite flank he was more than up to the task and was rarely the issue in the defence (though he's by no means totally innocent). He has been known to be a smothering player and opposition players have struggled to make an impact when faced with him. He has adapted well to the previously unfamiliar system Bekir Altingunes typically runs and is now a much better attacking outlet than he was at the start of his career.

13. Metin Boz (Uryanspor) Caps: 9 Goals: 0
Positions: DC
Age: 30
Bio: Likely to be the priority substitute in the event of some kind of defensive stability being needed. He featured sporadically in the qualifiers and started a few matches during Bekir Altingunes' experiments with the lineup. He also brings a helpful source of leadership as he has experience as the captain of Uryanspor.

15. Tuna Rustemoglu (Hisar FK) Caps: 10 Goals: 0
Positions: DC
Age: 37
Bio: One of the oldest players on the team, but he still has the ability to contribute as he plays in a limited role that doesn't demand massive amounts of physical exertion on his part. Though this will likely strain his fellow defenders if he gets on the pitch the strength (both physical and mental) that he brings to the table will always prove a valuable commodity on this team.

18. Beyhan Enver (Almat JK) Caps: 7 Goals: 0
Positions: DL, DR
Age: 26
Bio: Beyhan mostly played in relief of either full-back when they were struggling, but he did perform admirably on those occasions. He showed that he could bring a bit more athleticism than either of the starting full-backs and that he could keep pace with some very capable opposition. A very valuable depth selection for this team.

20. Yildiray Sabuktiginoglu (Kilicspor) Caps: 3 Goals: 0
Positions: DC, DL, DR
Age: 26
Bio: Yildiray has often had to play for teams that have been in very difficult circumstances and needed to put the team on his back. In his few appearances for the national team he has also demonstrated a lot of talent as well as the steel that he had shown at club level. If any of the starting defenders begin to falter he will fancy his chances at being able to lock down a place as the starter.

Midfielders:

6. Atilla Acar (Demirspor) Caps: 15 Goals: 2
Positions: MC
Age: 27
Bio: Easily recognizable with his long black hair and beard, Atilla was an energetic and welcome presence in a team that occasionally lacks conventional athleticism. Very capable of delivering pin point passes over long distances, he was a dynamo in midfield though he occasionally had a habit of disappearing from matches, but overall was a positive part of the team.

7. Tayyar Ozel (Demirspor) Caps: 20 Goals: 5
Positions: AML, AMR, AMC
Age: 29
Bio: Tayyar Ozel is a two footed winger who will line up on the left in order to allow Caner Turan to occupy the right. He operates as an inside forward/winger hybrid meaning he is able to put opposing defences on the backfoot. He has an almost superhuman awareness of his surroundings at times, but has also been guilty of being a limited factor in some matches.

8. Yusuf Ihsanoglu (Hisar FK) Caps: 20 Goals: 2
Positions: MC, DM
Age: 30
Bio: The more defensive half of the midfield pivot (though he typically sits higher up the pitch than his counterpart). He adapted fairly well to his partner in midfield, their conflicting styles almost perfectly covering for the other's flaws as the qualification campaign came to a close. He will continue to provide a screen for the defence who despite getting it together in the final few matches will be in desperate need of a competent defensively minded midfielder in front of them.

9. Caner Turan (Tashkentspor) Caps: 17 Goals: 8
Positions: AML, AMR
Age: 23
Bio: From standout performer in the BoF, to regular contributor in the qualification campaign. Caner Turan has been a key player on the right wing living up to his reputation as an electrifying player as well as one who showed he was able to stand up to the best that the qualification group had to throw at him. Though he did disappear for some stretches of matches, he is capable of suddenly showing his brilliance at a moments notice.

10. Ertan Renda (C) (Elektriklestirmespor) Caps: 19 Goals: 9
Positions: AMC, MC
Age: 28
Bio: Ertan Renda is something of an odd player. He isn't particularly fast, nor is he especially technically gifted and he doesn't really show any particular flair or spark when he's playing, but he's shown that he's an amazing player throughout his international career and his career at club level. He is a very technical player who shows that his main talent is getting the job done. Whether that job is providing service to the person leading the line or being the first line of defence pressing when the ball is lost. His short stature has made people doubt him in the past, but he's proven those critics wrong over and over.

16. Metin Aytacoglu (Tashkentspor) Caps: 3 Goals: 1
Positions: AMC
Age: 26
Bio: Metin showed himself to be a talented and capable player when he was called upon in relief of Ertan Renda, while he isn't likely to see a lot of action the team can be assured there is a solid backup option. While a more naturally gifted footballer than Ertan, he finds himself on the bench in favour of the Altingunes' preferred attacking midfielder.

17. Hakan Diren (Manat FK) Caps: 12 Goals: 0
Positions: MC
Age: 34
Bio: A crisp passer of the ball and a threat from set pieces, he showed that he could thrive at the international level in his appearances for the national team, however concerns about his physical fitness were well founded and probably led to his replacement by Atilla Acar as the starting midfielder. He will be unlikely to see much of the field, injuries permitting, but Bekir Altingunes will be happy with him as an option from the bench.

19. Tekin Yavuz (Elektriklestirmespor) Caps: 12 Goals: 1
Positions: AMR, AMC
Age: 32
Bio: Tekin Yavuz has struggled to find his feet at international level. While undoubtedly a player of great quality and ability, he has found himself overtaken by the two very capable starting wingers and largely third choice in attacking midfield. While his ability to make something out of nothing is notable, it is also a fact that he constantly gets shut down by opposition players for large spells.

21. Berkin Batuk (Elektriklestirmespor) Caps: 3 Goals: 0
Positions: MC
Age: 29
Bio: The Vizier Cup winner and tireless engine in midfield Berkin Batuk is unlikely to see much action. Something of a set piece specialist, if the team should find itself one down with 10 minutes to go they may throw him on so he takes any free kicks that he can customarily smash into the back of the net. Otherwise an energetic if slightly undisciplined midfielder who made a couple of very capable appearances for the national team.

Attackers:

11. Vatan Ercetin (Demirspor) Caps: 20 Goals: 20
Positions: ST, AMC
Age: 24
Bio: A prolific goalscorer at international level with an absurd 1:1 goals to caps ratio. Many expected this to drop off as we got a larger sample size of matches that he played in, but contrary to any and all expectations he continues to take advantage of the team's goalscoring potential to enrich his own record. Bekir Altingunes would be foolish not to give him complete trust in the role and allow him to run amok at this Cup of Harmony.

14. Ismail Burhan (Manat FK) Caps: 6 Goals: 6
Positions: ST
Age: 25
Bio: Despite having some troubles at the international level Ismail has managed to put behind some of his more questionable performances on the way to his own slighty less impressive 1:1 goals to caps ratio. He is considered a more complete striker than Vatan, but due to the other's clinical precision as a frontman he finds himself riding the bench, but as a very effective substitute.

22. Mehmet Karaman (Tashkentspor) Caps: 6 Goals: 3
Positions: ST
Age: 31
Bio: Unlikely to see significant minutes on the pitch, Mehmet has shown that he has a knack for coming up big in important moments, though he wont necessarily get the chance to show that here, he is a very well liked and respected member of the team and his presence in the locker room is always appreciated by his colleagues.

DEMOCRATIC REPUBLIC OF ABANHFLEFT
NATIONAL ASSOCIATION FOOTBALL TEAM


Ranulph Bustamante is gone; long live Ignatius Braun. But not for long, at least if the SFA is to be believed. After seemingly resuscitating Abanhfleft's chances for World Cup qualification, the Revolutionaries have fluffed their lines once again and are now back for another shot at the Cup of Harmony. According to the SFA, Braun will only manage the national team for the entirety of the Cup of Harmony and will not be given an extension unless he does very, very well in the Cup of Harmony. But can he? Only one way to find out, as always...

BASIC INFORMATION
Name of nation: Democratic Republic of Abanhfleft
Demonym: Fleftic
Team colors: Blue, orange, and green
Style modifier: -2.0
Formation: 4-3-1-2
Head coach: Ignatius Braun (70 y/o, Pridnestrovia)

STARTERS
GK: Carlos COHEN 33 y/o, Sporting Ceneisis Image, co-captain
Carlos did pretty well for himself while he starred in the Di Bradini Cup in Abanhfleft's first few sporting forays into the greater multiverse. But once he became ineligible for the Di Bradini Cup due to his age, he found his struggle to break through the senior national team blocked by the very same obstacle which was blocking his ascension to the first team of Sporting Ceneisis: none other than the Blues' stalwart goalkeeper and captain Maksim Varamoninov. The long-limbed and long-necked keeper held down Ceneisis' number one spot for so many years that Carlos must have surely contemplated moving to another club just to become first-choice keeper. But then Fluvique and Mevosa came swooping in with a big offer for Big Maksim and both Maksim and Ceneisis were crazy not to accept the offer, and that is the story of how Carlos Cohen finally became Ceneisis' number one. Sure, Maksim came back to Abanhfleft after a few years when a Catastrophic Termination Event swept through Fluvique but he signed for Arsenal de Releinthi instead so Carlos continues to be Ceneisis' number one.

LB: Daisuke OGIGAYATSU 29 y/o, Ludogorets Markovsky Image
Daisuke Ogigayatsu is the younger brother of Flardanian striker Eriko Ogigayatsu, who is one of the star strikers of Ludogorets Markovsky Ladies (alongside Zsofia Dolan and Tess Byquist). Daisuke is the only member of the Ogigayatsu family who was born in Abanhfleft, which made him eligible to represent the country by nature of the law which automatically grants Fleftic citizenship to everyone born within Fleftic borders. Daisuke is a speedy fullback whose bags of pace allow him to keep up with the offense of the team while at the same time not shirking from his defensive responsibilities. So far, he's been overlooked by the SFA, but Heinrich Wurzmann hopes that Daisuke will shine enough in the Independents Cup to warrant a real call-up for the real national team. That hope has now come true come the World Cup 77 qualifiers.

LCB: Ainsley GIBSON 29 y/o, 1830 Cathair Image (Audioslavia)
Gibson has large shoes to fill in following the graduation of Rory Edwards to the senior team and Celerino delos Reyes' decision to give the captain's armband to Gibson. Perhaps delos Reyes would have been better off if he had given the armband to Cedric Pearson or Joe Warren, but after Gibson's commanding performance as captain of the under-18s, Owen Bevan would have none of it. Gibson is a speedy center-back, which used to serve as the perfect foil to Kristin Pittmann's rock-solid presence on the pitch, but with Pittmann now ineligible, he's had to work hard to limit his attacking runs, especially now that this tendency of his was exploited by Pasarga in that fateful round of 16 matchup. Somehow managed to get a move from mid-table Submarin Yeralenko in Pridnestrovia to Audioslavia's 1830 Cathair despite all that.

RCB: Horace POPOV 28 y/o, Farrenton Athletic Image (Eura)
A member of the Fleftic under-21 team's backroom staff happened upon Popov while playing Championship Football Manager and noticed that the kid had high defensive potential. Popov is still a diamond in the rough, but some experience under the wing of Melisizwe Afolayan could see him become a potential star. Whether it's for his mother's homeland Abanhfleft or his birth country Pridnestrovia still remains to be seen, but for now, while he's still under the age of 21, he's Abanhfleft's man. With Afolayan now ineligible, it's up to Popov to make an impact that will keep him in a white shirt. Injuries to Jordan Cervantes and Holland Emilianovski have necessitated Popov's inclusion into the senior team where he hopes to make a very good impact.

RB: Melisizwe AFOLAYAN 30 y/o, Locomotive Imgortur Image
Afolayan is a no-nonsense defender that doesn't take being skilled around by the opponent lightly. If the opponent begins skilling his or her way around Afolayan then he will just stick out a leg and trip over the opponent, which has led to a disciplinary record filled with yellow cards and the occasional red card. The Rodrigues management claims that Afolayan has the potential to be a wing-back due to his high offensive work rate, but only time will tell if this will become true. Signed by Locomotive Imgortur as a long-term replacement for Charles Amoroso and was a fixture in Abanhfleft's early Di Bradini squads before finally making the cut with the senior national team.

LM: Andrea MARILUNGO 29 y/o, Malabon SC Image
Malabon is not generally considered to have one of the better football academies within the Fleftic football system, and Adelmio Bandini isn't also noted for being the type of manager to promote from within the club, but Marilungo proved to be the exception to both these rules. Although he's more of a central midfielder for Malabon, his wicked good left foot means that Ranulph Bustamante has put in the left midfield where he can put his defensive qualities to good use and cover for his fellow youngsters Daisuke Ogigayatsu and Kenneth Owobowale. But that doesn't mean Marilungo can't come forward and help on the offense as well.

CM: Luĉjo Miĥaelo KLEINMANN 27 y/o, Malabon SC Image
Kleinmann is finally in the starting eleven of a Fleftic national team, much to the relief of Malabon SC fanboys as well as Kleinmann fanboys even thought it's not the official starting eleven of Ranulph Bustamante. Everyone knows how good he is as a central defensive mid, and now he has proven that he can do it on a regular basis after finally earning the starting spot that the now-ineligible Joe Warren once occupied. Well, except for the fact that he was completely and utterly shit in the big game against Pasarga. Is he really as good as people think he is, or is he just another hyped-up talent who can't perform in the big games? Everyone from Ranulph Bustamante to the armchair managers sitting at home in Abanhfleft will soon find out.

RM: Cedric PEARSON 31 y/o, Samaj FC Image (Cosumar)
One of the four remaining starters of the original Fleftic Di Bradini squad, Pearson used to be one of the more questionable choices in the starting eleven back when the under-21s first competed in international football, but with age and experience he is starting to prove his doubters wrong, but with a history of being injury-prone Pearson hasn't been able to show good performances for an entire season. His presence will help lock up the midfield, but if he gets injured the Fleftic right side will prove vulnerable. Ced eventually grew tired of being constantly in a relegation battle with Bananas FC and decided to move to Cosumar's Samaj FC when the opportunity came knocking despite interest from FC Brimstone over in Apox as well.

CAM: Rory EDWARDS 32 y/o, Riuwiee United Image, co-captain
Consistent for the three years that he'd been playing for the under-21s but never quite managing to lead them to the title, the younger Edwards sibling has made his mark, but will certainly look to make that mark bigger with his inclusion into the first team of the senior squad. His main job will be feeding Potter and Kelvin, but he can and does score some goals from his position. He has the future to be either a false 9 or an actual striker in his own right.

CF: Kareem DAGEN 27 y/o, Rosenpfelblatz City Image
Dagen can be described as the breakout player of the first Sporting World Cup, scoring 10 goals and leading Abanhfleft to second place in the aforementioned tournament. His amazing performance as a striker led to his signing by Eikborg Club, a Semarlandish club competing in the Globe Cup, making him the first ever Fleftic player to sign for a foreign league other than Pridnestrovia, Oontaz Dert Li Ng and Copper Cuprum. Dagen's quality performance in the Sporting World Cup also earned him a starting spot in the Fleftic under-21s, over the likes of Garrett Krantz and Irina Babarushchik. Now he's starting because those other players are now ineligible as well. After a few years with Eikborg, Dagen has gone back to Rosenpfelblatz on the promise of first team minutes and playing alongside the likes of Max Fetfatzidis and Oliver Ganson.

CF: Vitaly ZIMA 28 y/o, Imperial Markovsky Image
Vitaly Zima is the twin brother of Arkadi Zima of Revolutionary Nordskania, and they've had quite a contentious relationship outside of football. Vitaly is a one-dimensional striker who is good at getting into spaces and poaching the ball in dangerous areas, but other than that, he's not a remarkable player. No one's really sure why Vitaly has been included to the Independents Cup squad, except maybe to provide a contrast to his more prominent brother Arkadi, who's made a lot of waves recently. He scored goals in the Independents Cup and made himself look like a world-class striker so that has to explain why he was included in the qualifying pool. Now starting in the World Cup proper in place of the recovering Kevin Kelvin.

RESERVES
GK: Guildenstern CARDEW 22 y/o, Sporting Ceneisis Image
Guildenstern Cardew is the younger brother of former Panem striker Silvia Cardew. After Panem was enveloped by a mysterious Catastrophic Termination Event (or CTE), the Cardews eventually managed to wind up on the shores of the Fhulghamous Peninsula Colony along with a large number of their fellow Panemian nationals. Guildenstern was eventually picked up by Besanza Emeralds FC of the Fhulghamousian Premier League. Guildenstern decided to emulate his Panemian idol Walnut Durant and become a goalkeeper even though his sister Silvia is a striker. Guildenstern is also very close friends with Marius Rosenkrantz the soccer player but never got around to telling Marius his true feelings until it was too late. Will this affect him throughout the qualification period?

GK: Roy RINEY 21 y/o, New Llama Capitals Image (Super-Llamaland)
Now this is probably a sight that you didn't expect to see; a 17-year-old among a bunch of mostly twenty-years-plus players with the odd teenager here and there. Roy is the youngest member of Ranulph Bustamante's experimental Independents Cup squad but not by a big margin as the next-youngest player to him is fellow reserve goalkeeper Guildenstern Cardew. Usually, people would be questioning the inclusion of such a young player in a representative football team but once Ranulph Bustamante took over managing Abanhfleft and unearthed such gems as Robin Riedewald and Tanaka Okamoto, no one questions his decisions anymore. Besides, Riney must have done something right for Ranulph to even consider calling him up, even if it is just for the Independents Cup. Not that Ranulph thinks that the Independents Cup is a nothing trophy; it's still a trophy after all for those nations who aren't affiliated with the Big Three regions of Esportiva, Rushmore, and Atlantian Oceania.

RB: Rohan SMITH 29 y/o, Arsenal de Releinthi Image
The signing of Rohan Smith by Arsenal de Releinthi made news back in the day, mostly because of how much Arsenal persisted in making sure the deal crossed the line and Smith put pen to paper. How an 18-year-old in the depths of non-league could warrant such a long and extended pursuit had many pundits and armchair managers scratching their heads, but more than a decade later, those same pundits and armchair managers are now singing Smith's praises, especially during Arsenal de Releinthi's back-to-back title-winning seasons just a few years ago. Ranulph Bustamante will expect Smith to continue his defensive solidity throughout the qualifiers.

CB: Charles VIGER 29 y/o, AFC Langtree Image (Mercedini)
Charlie Viger used to be one of the brightest prospects among defenders in the under-18 group of both Fleftic and Pridnestrovian players and was already knocking on the door of the first team of Vorpommern Nyqvist of the Pridnestrovian Super League looking to become one of the team and league's best young defenders. Then the final of the first ever Sporting World Cup happened and Charlie was part of the Abanhfleft team that conceded five goals against eventual champions Semarland. Charlie's confidence took a very noticeable nosedive and everything that marked him out as a defender for the future vanished and he was eventually released by the club, ending up across the Rheinsee with Kesselburger Kickers. But Ranulph Bustamante still must see the potential in Charlie to warrant an inclusion with the Independents Cup squad. Perhaps Ranulph hopes to re-unearth Charlie's once-again-hidden talent.

LB: Caleb WAYNE 25 y/o, Wanda Island Wanderers Image
Caleb isn't a regular starter for any of the junior squads before this, but the few substitute appearances that he made from the bench earned him a big money move to Fluvique's Darwin City (3 million NSD, to be exact). Like many of the defensive players coming through Abanhfleft's academies in recent times, Caleb is a defender, specifically a left back, who likes to bomb forward when the opportunity arises, although he does do his defensive duties as well if called upon, thus giving him the potential to be a wingback or even a winger. He's also quite good in the air and could be relied on when defending set pieces or winning air balls. Now plays for Wanda Island Wanderers after a Catastrophic Termination Event engulfed Fluvique and left him among one of the few survivors.

DM: Andor GAÁL 25 y/o, Malabon SC Image
Lucjo Kleinmann's fellow Malabonian "wunderkind" is finally stepping up to the plate after spending a lot of time languishing on the bench of the under-18 and under-21 teams. But unlike Lucjo, who is the kind of central midfielder who gets in between the opposition's passing lanes and works to disrupt their offensive rhythm and win the ball, Andor is more of a box-to-box midfielder, chipping in on defensive duties when needed and ready to restart the attack when the ball gets poked out of the final third by the opponents. He's also good for a long-range shot, especially from his left foot, and he has scored his fair share of screamers. He will look to do so for his country on the senior level thanks to Ranulph Bustamante's belief in his ability.

CM: DeAngelo LEVIN 29 y/o, Ludogorets Markovsky Image
It's been eight years since DeAngelo Levin last wore an Abanhfleft team jersey, eight long years for some people. But after his impressive performances helping Ludogorets Markovsky to their third Fleftic Premier League title and with many of Abanhfleft's old stalwarts hanging up their boots, Levin has been called back to duty by Ranulph Bustamante, and while he will look to play a supporting role in the qualifiers, depending on what happens Levin could just find yet another chance to make it back to the Revolutionaries' starting eleven.

CM: Toumain VINCELOT 30 y/o, Sarvusdalamoive Image
Toumain Vincelot is originally from the Anglatian colony of Patierre. His family fled to Abanhfleft after the Anglatians removed the Communist presence in the colony because the Vincelots had been known socialist sympathizers, although Toumain himself is apolitical. Vincelot is a tough, no-nonsense defensive-minded midfielder and will think nothing of going in for the sliding tackle if it meant breaking up the opposition's attack. Following stellar performances in the Independents Cup in Bonesea (including at least two Man of the Match awards), Vincelot has been called up to the senior national squad to replace the injured Alan Turpentine. Now sidelined for the entirety of the World Cup due to an injury sustained during a match against Revolutionary Nordskania.

CAM: Omar EL SALAH 29 y/o, General Santos FC Image (Oontaz), on loan from Arsenal de Releinthi Image
Arsenal and Godric Wexler have always had a reputation for producing good players from their academy's ranks, and while Omar El Salah hasn't been on anyone's radars before last season, when El Salah came out to play in a few Premier League games to fill in for the injured Elliot Edison, and he has proven to be one of the better things about Arsenal's disappointing season. He scored his debut goal against Marinos Thimpodopoulos to give them a victory against their bogey team, and then El Salah scored his first goal in the Monsanto Stadium against Kimmirut Panhandle, the team that had knocked them out of the SFA Cup just a week earlier. El Salah is speedy and has great composure and finishing which belies his young age, but with many other good players ahead of him, he will have to wait for a few games before earning his first cap.

FW: Arthur MacALISTAIR 25 y/o, Wanda Island Wanderers Image
Arthur started his career as a left-sided midfielder but eventually found himself becoming a great winger, even if just for the under-18 and under-21 squad. His few substitute appearances during the latest Di Bradini Cup earned him a move to Fluvique's Athletic, where is now getting some more first-team minutes than he could have possibly expected from his first club. Owen Bevan got the most out of Arthur in the second Sporting World Cup as a winger, but was shifted back in deep midfield by Celerino delos Reyes, but for his first senior team roster mention, he's expected to be at least a winger once again. Replaces the totally and completely unused Yoshinobu Mori.

FW: Mustafa BENSOUSSAN 20 y/o, Bananas FC Image
With four goals in four games for Abanhfleft's most recent Di Bradini Cup, it was pretty much guaranteed that Bensoussan was going to get called up to the senior team sooner or later, and herein lies the proof. As always with his bench players, Ranulph Bustamante expects Bensoussan to take up the slack for when either Kareem Dagen or Vitaly Zima are subbed off, but he Bensoussan could also expect to get the occasional start or two if either Abanhfleft is flying high or the team's two starting strikers are struggling for form.

FW: Damian SELIKOV 26 y/o, Ludogorets Markovsky Image
Damian Selikov holds a strange place in the hearts and minds of many Ludogorets fans. He's not the best striker their team has ever had, but he's far from being the worst either. The fanbase is also equally split on whether he is a big-game player or not; those who love him say that he always turns up for the big games while those who hate him claim that Selikov always disappears during the big games. It's come to the point where Markovskites have a saying about him: "He will always make you go crazy, but you never know if it's a good thing or a bad thing." Nonetheless, Selikov appears to have won over the entire fanbase after his deciding goal against Admiral Porcusces won Ludogorets both the game and the Fleftic Premier League title. At the moment though, nobody has any idea how Ranulph Bustamante hopes to utilize him for the national team.

STADIUMS
All football stadiums in Abanhfleft now have seats following a mandatory upgrade in 2000, but despite this ruling, many, if not all, stadiums still allow standing spectators during matches. However, in anticipation for World Cup qualifying matches, more security forces had been hired by the authorities to make sure that there are no standing spectators in such games.

Official name: May 26 Revolution Memorial Stadium
Capacity: est. 67,000
Record attendance: 72,308 (Riuwiee United vs. Wanda Island Wanderers; June 3, 2009)
Operator: Riuwiee United FC
Short history: The May 26 Stadium, originally known as Raschner Lane, and later on as Riuwiee National Stadium, was built in 1886 as a cricket ground, and it served as home for two semi-pro cricket teams before it was bought by the Riuwiee Capitals football team, which will later on become Riuwiee United. After the conclusion of the Catholic Revolution of 2008, the national government bought the controlling share of Riuwiee National Stadium and renamed it the May 26 Revolution Memorial Stadium, in commemoration of the May 26 Revolution that eventually established the nation of Abanhfleft. Riuwiee United still play in the May 26 Stadium, but now it is also the chosen stadium for home games by the Fleftic national football team.


Official name: State of Wanda Island Arena
Capacity: est. 54,000
Record attendance: 59,674 (Wanda Island Wanderers vs. Malabon SC; November 15, 2012)
Operator: Wanda Island Wanderers FC
Short history: The State of Wanda Island demolished the old Wanda Island Arena in 1998 to make way for a new and improved football stadium that follows international standards. Construction began in 1999, and finished just in time for the beginning of the 2001 Premier League season. The Wanderers played in a nearby high school athletic field for the duration of the arena's construction. In 2010, when IKEA entered into a sponsorship agreement with the Wanderers, the arena was consequently called IKEA Arena for sponsorship reasons. This agreement is expected to continue until 2020, after both sides came to a six-year contract extension.


Image

Official name: Monsanto Stadium
Capacity: est. 50,000
Record attendance: 56,555 (Arsenal de Releinthi vs. Admiral Porcusces; January 7, 2013)
Operator: FC Arsenal de Releinthi
Short history: Arsenal de Releinthi mooted moving to a new stadium ever since 1993, but it was only in 2002 that the club managed to get permission to begin construction on the site of a former landfill after disputes with the city council and land planning office. Even then, it was only after Monsanto agreed to shoulder the cost of the new stadium that it was even built, and because of this, the stadium was named Monsanto Stadium. Arsenal de Releinthi and Monsanto entered into a seven-year contract extension this year, potentially extending Monsanto's sponsorship of the club up to 2021.

Notes

Since last participating in the Copa Rushmori back in the 24th edition, Saintland has undergone two time warps with over 50 years elapsing. In the years since, Saintland split into the Feministvs Sanctvsterra-run west and the Church of Saintland-run east which were eventually unified under the eastern government after King Petrus XX (now officially regarded as a usurper and heretic) died without a male heir and King Paulus XVI, son of King Andreas, refused to recognize the legitimacy of the law permitting Petrus's daughters to take the throne. After conquering Saintland, King Paulus XVI has restored the Church of Saintland to its legally dominant position and has pursued a course slightly more traditional than that of his grandfather. Sanctii time now runs at the same pace as Republican time (OOC: 1 year per WC).

The quality of Sanctii soccer has declined precipitously in recent years as baseball has become the most popular sport due to King Paulus XVI's legendary status in that sport. While King Paulus XVI's son Prince Andreas is tearing up youth soccer at the moment and may one day follow in his grandfather's footsteps, he is nowhere near ready for international competition which means that Saintland is returning to international play with a young defensive-oriented team led by goalkeeper Alessandro Suedius, the young goalkeeper for the St. Nicolaus team that has won the Sanctii league championship 2 years straight. Suedius selected a team of younger stars from the Sanctii league due to the low expectations surrounding the team.

The team is built around conservative, physical, defensive play. If the officials allow rough play, this Sanctii team will take advantage of it to frustrate attack-oriented opposition with a steady diet of borderline dirty tackles. As for the team itself, none of the players particularly stand out other than Suedius and Suedius will shuffle players in and out on a regular basis. The starters listed are the most likely starters but that exact lineup will almost never be the lineup Suedius goes with for an actual match.
