Understanding the Pool

Matthieu Augier is still seeking a best 23, so he's collected a pool of players to search for a final roster. He's emphasized youth, and his roster features more A-Division players his teams faced off previously.

The players number 1-11 would be considered the starting 11 if the cup started today. The players 12-24 would be backups. Every layer behind them is competing for the those 23 spots throughout qualification. When the team qualifies for the World Cup (or the Cup of Harmony, should they fall short) the pool will be cut down, and the numbers will be reassigned to the final squad. Throughout qualifying, starting rosters and the bench at each game will feature a different mix of players from the pool.

Stadium Information

All Oberour Ar Moro home matches will be played at the Parade Grounds in the capital of Regium, capacity 46,670.

FIRST INTERNATIONAL MATCH/FIRST LOSS: Ethane 0-1 Oisinistan (BoF61)
- It may have been a loss, but this match marked the start of a campaign which saw Ethane reach the quarter-finals of the Baptism of Fire.
FIRST WIN: Ethane 2-1 Whovian Tardisia (BoF61)
- This was the final match of the group stages of the Baptism of Fire for the Red Kites, and also the first win ever for the team on the international stage. This result saw them slip out of the groups in second, narrowly qualifying to the next stage of the tournament.
FIRST DRAW: Ethane 0-0 Quazira (BoF61)
- This was the second match of that tight Baptism of Fire group, and was a tense but uneventful match. This draw against the group leaders kept the Red Kites in a place where they could still progress.
FIRST WCQ MATCH/WIN: Kynystan 0-1 Ethane (WCQ74)
- This match set the tone for Ethane's first qualifying campaign. They did challenge and threaten the top teams, but were never really in contention to reach the world cup.
FIRST WC MATCH: Ethane 2-2 Cosumar (WC77)
- As first World Cup matches go, the Red Kites managed to impress with a draw against a decent team. Ultimately, the point claimed from this draw ended up being the only point claimed in the group, leading to the inevitable elimination of Ethane from the world cup. It was a start.
FIRST WC WIN: Ethane 1-0 Nova Anglicana (WC78)
- The first of Ethane's World Cup matches in this cycle, the Red Kites were keen to set the tone for the rest of the group. And that they did, with a decent performance leading to a win. This, and the draw against San Jose Guayabal, allowed the Red Kites to progress past the group stages for the first time in the team's history.
LARGEST WIN: Ethane 6-0 Legalese | Ethane 7-1 Kandonica (WCQ83)
- The Red Kites dominated in this match, completely shutting Legalese out. This match formed part of a qualifying campaign which saw the team win the qualifying group, but ultimately struggle in a very tough world cup group. Declan Smith managed to score a hattrick against Legalese in this match, asserting his claim to a position in the team.
- This is one of the better results from a brutal world cup qualification campaign, which saw Ethane go crashing out in the group playoffs. One of the better results of the campaign, it is often used to hide the other more devastating results.
LARGEST LOSS: Nephara 9-3 Ethane (WCQ83)
- Perhaps one of the more devastating Ethani footballing results, Nephara run rampant over Ethane despite the 2-0 lead for the Red Kites after 20 minutes. This solidified Nephara's lead of the group and left Ethane shocked.
HIGHEST SCORING GAME: Nephara 9-3 Ethane (WCQ83)
- We don't talk about this.
MOST SIGNIFICANT/IMPRESSIVE GAMES: Ethane 3-1 The Holy Empire (WC75Q) | Electrum 1-0 Ethane (WC77Q) | Ethane 1-0 Eshan (Fr) | Ethane 3-3 San José Guayabal (WC78) | Ethane 2-0 Valladares (WC79Q) | Ethane 3-1 Cassadaigua (WC81) | Nephara 9-3 Ethane (WCQ83) | Ethane 1-2 Port Ember (WCQ84) | Siovanija And Teusland 1-0 Ethane (WCQ85)
- The significance of this game lies not in the outcome leading from this match, although Ethane did reach the playoffs for the first time due primarily to this result amongst other factors in the group. Instead, it is significant because of the result considering the ranking disparity between these 2 teams. This early on in Ethane's footballing journey, a result like this is, and was, impressive.
- A crucial victory against a top team which allowed the Red Kites to qualify for their first world cup ever.
- #friendlyrivalry #ESHANE
- A crucial game against a highly prestigious team which allowed the Red Kites to progress past the world cup group stage for the first time in their history.
- This confident victory against the top seed in the group kickstarted Ethane's qualifying campaign which saw the Red Kites reach the world cup for the third consecutive edition.
- Ethane's first victory in the World Cup knockout rounds.
- As I said, we don't speak about this. But it was a significant game.
- The devastating result that destroyed Ethane's world cup qualification chances, turning a seemingly indomitable second place into a fourth place finish in the groups after a terrible second half of qualifying.
- A win and Ethane were back in the World Cup after a long absence. They lost.


STAFFING
MANAGER: Daniel Bakerman | 47
Bakerman in essence marks a return to more conventional footballing tactics, with defensive philosophies at the core of his playstyle. Effectively, Bakerman's appointment is a return to core Ethani footballing identity in a defensive style of play. This will undoubtedly better suit some of the players from The Flame League. Bakerman has previous experience managing lower-level Ethani league teams, such as Ketley and Whitsown Wanderers. Following mediocre success at these clubs, he was appointed to the youth setup at Letson Town where he has found success in the youth leagues and tournaments. He was tipped to take over the Letson Town managerial role before Andrew Gillips took the position. Instead, he has departed Letson Town for the national team. He almost provided the qualification to the World Cup that the Red Kites so desperately wanted, but just fell short; the team did show promise though, with some efforts to change up the player base as well. A disappointing Cup of Harmony and a terrible Campionato Esportiva have left his position in a little bit of jeopardy, but he has the confidence of the footballing board heading in to the qualification campaign for the 86th World Cup.

ASSISTANT MANAGER: Sabrina Taigasen | 39
Close friends with Bakerman, Sabrina struck up a relationship with him at Whitsown Wanderers where she was on the staff coaching team. She has since adopted the ideas and tactics of Bakerman and forms a dynamic coaching relationship with him, supporting him and the players in tactical and professional development. Perhaps more savvy with the media, she is the face of the gradual growth of women in Ethani football.


THE PLAYERS
Changes in The Flame League and in the managerial style of the national team have had an impact on the player base of the Red Kites. A limited shift towards a slightly more defensive player base has definitely occurred. However, this is not to take away from the quality offensive players that this team has, although the whole team has undergone a decline over recent years. Perhaps this also explains the influx of some new, younger players. The manager may be looking to some of the new blood to step up and make that difference to stop the rot. However, there are expectations on the already established players as well to perform, with previous performances not living up to what this team is capable of - not too long ago, this team was ranked 8th in the world.

GOALKEEPER: Joss Araújo | 28 | Bourne River | 29 appearances | 13 clean sheets
A dynamic shot-stopper, Araújo is a rising star in Ethanian football. Stepping up recently to the Bourne River team, he has demonstrated great awareness in league play, as well as that ability to just pull off an amazing save here and there. About 6' 2'' in height, Araújo's height isn't to be frowned at, with his ability to make himself big in goal one of his advantages. His goal kicks aren't amazing, and he probably isn't someone you'd want to rely on passing back to on many occasions, but as a basic goalkeeper he lives up to and goes beyond expectations. He played most of the 85th qualification campaign, and despite falling short, Joss was a standout player with some spectacular saves. Expected to hold his starting position, Bakerman will be expecting him to repeat some of the heroics of the last world cup qualification campaign, brushing aside the mistakes in the Campionato Esportiva.

GOALKEEPER: Donovan Velázquez | 27 | Birdingstone United | 6 appearances | 3 clean sheets
The penalty specialist. Velázquez has an ability to read players well. While his positioning in normal play may not be the best, and his awareness is sub-standard, when it comes to one-on-ones and penalties he really shines. He isn't short and he has an intimidating stature. But when it comes to that penalty shootout or that extra time wonder-save, you know he is going to be the one with his name up in lights. Backup to Joss and good at it.

GOALKEEPER: Reinaldo Coleman | 30 | Cadadale | 0 appearances | 0 clean sheets
Sure and certain as a goalkeeper, Coleman does not disappoint, especially at the basics. Brave and willing, she does not shy away from putting herself in a dangerous position. Especially good at covering crosses and free kicks, but not to be underestimated in a 1-on-1 situation either. A solid back line that will keep on fighting until the end. Perhaps a little too aggressive, is liable to cards. New to the international stage and will be hoping for some, albeit limited, game time.

LEFT-BACK: Antonio Atanga | 30 | New Sarum | 18 appearances | 7 clean sheets | 2 goals | 5 assists
Atanga is also often used as a pacey wingback, marauding down the flanks acting as a winger as well as a defender, providing an extra dimension on attack depending on the formation of play. He is quite skilled at dribbling at pace and has a few skill moves up his sleeves, as well as an accurate cross and finesse shot. He is slightly unstable on his feet though and a little too keen to go to ground, both when being tackled but also in his overuse of slide tackles which makes cards a slightly greater consideration for him. When on the pitch, could potentially take free-kicks.

LEFT-BACK: Cai Woods | 32 | AS Bezieres (VLD) | 60 appearances | 17 clean sheets | 3 goals | 8 assists
Woods is a skilled Ethani football player. He is mature and skilled with the ball at his feet, and has great awareness on and off the ball. He isn't particularly strong and he lacks some of the pace he used to possess, but he isn't slow either and can provide limited threat on the offensive. He has developed a deadly cross as well, performing well in overlap with a left-winger or a left-positioned attacking midfielder. But he is also aware of when not to attack and to stay back, providing solid covering in defence. He may seem past his best, but he certainly is far from it, he's just adapted. Played a decent number of games last cycle and is expected to play a similar number this cycle.

LEFT-BACK: Eric Morris | 34 | Bourne River | 57 appearances | 20 cleans sheets | 8 goals | 22 assists
Morris is a creative left-back. He likes to play fast-paced football, with a general impetus to get the ball upfield rather than to keep possession which makes him an unusual fit for this team, albeit better placed with offensive focus. He is creative but he is malleable, meaning he sometimes does get caught out on the defensive with a lack of positioning awareness a downside to his game. He is a talented tackler though, timing his tackles well; it is unusual that he gets a card. Occasionally, he can also pose a threat in front of goal with his well-timed runs into the box. He can push up and play LM if required, although he probably wouldn't fit into a Left-attacking midfielder position.

CENTRE-BACK: Max Wilburn-Mason | 21 | Hullbury | 20 appearances | 8 clean sheets | 1 goal | 3 assists
A young, upcoming Ethani defensive player. He is mature beyond his age. A tall player, Wilburn-Mason has a great aerial presence and typically wins headers. He isn't fast but he is smart in positioning and awareness, great at interceptions and conservative tackles. He won't go all in for a tackle, preferring to stay on his feet. Young and inexperienced so may be caught out sometimes on this stage. Likes to push forward and is talented at breaking down some defences. Pushes up for corners. Has made an astounding entry on to the national team and is expected to be one of the better Ethani players on the team for many years to come, leading from the back.

CENTRE-BACK: Craig James | 25 | Loconstead United | 19 appearances | 8 clean sheets
James is an average paced player with a lot of confidence. This confidence is great when he is marking people, which he does really well at restricting players from making moves and tracking their movement, skilled at positioning. However, this confidence is not so good when he is willing to go to ground easily and doesn't have the same game sense as a more experienced player would have, thus making him slightly more prone to cards.

CENTRE-BACK: Markus Capradossi | 28 | Chenoworth Rovers (NPH) | 12 appearances | 6 clean sheets
A solid defensive player with brute strength and good positioning and awareness. Can be a bit of a brute, so may sometimes get a card. But generally smart and stays on his feet when he can. Sometimes panics and can get desperate, but also sometimes pulls off some marvellous defensive work. Not good when he's on his own at the back.

CENTRE-BACK: Elliott Collins | 23 | South Saints | 0 appearances | 0 clean sheets
A great replacement for Nelson Romero at South Saints at the back, and a great replacement for him on the national team too. He may be short, but he is fast and positions well, so he isn't easy to get passed. Perhaps lets himself on to the back foot too often and doesn't chase down enough, but he can clean up most of the messes he makes.

CENTRE-BACK: Chris Stevens | 27 | Holloway | 0 appearances | 0 clean sheets
Not special, not got any secret talents up his sleeves, and not going to provide anything much on the offensive. Just a bogstandard, above average defender. Strongly built, appears a little dominating, and certainly not someone you'd want to be in a fight with.

RIGHT-BACK: Zakariya McArthur | 32 | Brindham Park | 40 appearances | 12 clean sheets | 3 assists
He's pacey so can bomb forward and provide an extra dimension on the wing in the attack, but also puts in a lot of effort so quickly tracks back to prevent counters. He commits, but not too much to leave him way out of position. He has accurate crosses, powerful shots. He reads the game well and knows when to cross when to go in for a shot, and when to stay back for the counter. He knows when to go in for a tackle and when to just block. He just isn't very good in pressurised situations.

RIGHT-BACK: Toby Turner | 24 | Bourne River | 10 appearances | 5 clean sheets
A young, agile, and fast player; Turner certainly provides an explosive aspect to his game. He is also relatively smart defensively and in positioning. His weakness comes in the offence, with his passing not up to standard and his crossing slightly lacklustre, though this are areas of his game which he is spending significant time developing, which Bennett will certainly help with considering their history working together as well.

RIGHT-BACK: Sebastien Ryalls | 23 | New Sarum | 2 appearances | 1 clean sheet
A dynamic, pacey right-back who adds an extra offensive overlapping game to his defensive abilities. He is fast, agile, and smart in his playstyle. He is also perhaps one of the nicest guys you'll ever meet, sweet and kind, and always apologetic when he fouls another player.

LEFT-MIDFIELDER: Iwan Roberts | 32 | Makosile United (VIL) | 55 appearances | 7 goals | 12 assists
He may not have the strength of some wingers, nor quite the same crossing abilities as some of the better wingers (although he can still whip some decent crosses in), but what he does have is pace. He is one of Ethane's quickest runners, and he has a decent dribbling ability, making him ideal for a team focused on attack - either counter or just full-out - with the core idea to rip apart and stretch the opponent's defence. He has this ability to draw the defence out to him by coaxing them before charging round them - one of his trademark moves.

LEFT-MIDFIELDER: Alex Woodrow | 28 | Chatswood (NPH) | 12 appearances | 1 goal | 3 assists
Woodrow is agile and flexible, thus able to dupe players with his skill abilities. But he isn't that quick a player. However, he has a really good cross and can pick out players in the box with precision. He is also good at set pieces, and is likely to play them if Atanga isn't.

CENTRE-MIDFIELDER: Leyton Underwood | 36 | South Saints | 112 appearances | 20 goals | 32 assists
Leyton has a remarkable mind focused on attack, getting the ball forward and making advances towards the goal. He has pace, as well as the set of skills required to do well in the centre of midfield - passing, dribbling, the authority to dictate the game plan and the pace of play. He is a strong leadership figure within this squad and well respected, both in the team and abroad. He's ageing but still has the desire, and physical fitness, to play just slower.

CENTRE-MIDFIELDER: Jaheim Zavala | 22 | Eikborg Club (SEM) | 28 appearances | 3 goals | 8 assists
Zavala has a really attacking impetus to his game, dribbling and moving forward and always trying to force the pass on. He has good linkup play between the defence and offence, and is not afraid to try out new things. Occasionally drifts too wide leaving the middle open, but also covers for wingers well. Pacey. Doesn't offer up too much in defence, but working on his defensive game. A very bright future.

CENTRE-MIDFIELDER: Alexander Kjaer | 29 | Loconstead United | 11 appearances | 2 goals | 3 assists
Kjaer is a calm and collected player. He puts the effort in, but he often doesn't know how best to approach a situation, making him prone to the mistake here and there. However, he is very much zippy and agile in midfield, especially when turning and shooting, providing a link-up threat or even an attacking threat himself when on the attack, especially effective on the counter.

CENTRE-MIDFIELDER: Nicolas Riemann | 26 | Rhayader | 0 appearances | 0 goals | 0 assists
[size=85]An aspirational player who often takes on tasks that they cannot do in the hope they grow into it. They are out of their depth, but are able to step up sometimes where needed. A more conservative player who plays well in a possession-based balanced team. Good passing and vision.


RIGHT-MIDFIELDER: Kyle Ford | 28 | Oakstone (EUR) | 73 appearances | 20 goals | 39 assists
Ford offers a lot for the national team and is one of Ethane's most notable players. His style isn't founded on pace like some of the other players on the international team. Instead, he prefers to build up and keep possession. He is a strong dribbler, and has great awareness, especially in regards to crosses and through balls, the like which can tear open defences. He is also not averse to switching play a little and coming into the centre from the wing in an attack on the defence, letting the odd shot off here and there.

RIGHT-MIDFIELDER: Rigby Headley (RW) | 33 | Olympia FC (EFL) | 64 appearances | 18 goals | 16 assists
Headley is a talented striker/right-wing attacker, hence the call up to the national side. He has past experience on the national side. Will be used in cases where the team is focused on attack solely, due to his more attacking nature of play.

ATTACKING-MIDFIELDER: Josh Montoya | 32 | Oakstone (EUR) | 104 appearances | 28 goals | 44 assists
Montoya has a real ability to play and carry a team if needed. He's one of those players you can rely on to deliver when everyone else is having a bad game. Even if he's having a bad game he has that moment of genius that can make all the difference. Montoya is a mature footballer, showing wisdom and intelligence in his style of play and technique. He also has a deadly pace which allows him to rocket past defenders and tear opposition teams open. However, his main skills lie in his passing ability. His awareness allows for deadly through-balls and crucial passes, although when things aren't working out he can get a little frustrated and his performances drop a little. He can struggle under intense pressure, and is more injury prone than other players following a severe injury near the start of his career. He is also fairly reluctant to tackle because of this and doesn't offer much defensively.

ATTACKING-MIDFIELDER: Andy Obrien | 28 | Letson Town | 27 appearances | 5 goals | 5 assists
He is dedicated and much more willing to put energy and time into training and into the game, making him an important player to have on the field because of how willing he is to get involved. He isn't necessarily fast either, but he is a great playmaker, and completely unselfish. He is solid at positioning, passing, and dribbling, which allows him to work and coordinate an attack from the front effectively.

ATTACKING-MIDFIELDER:Leonardo Ford | 33 | Cranequin Wanderers (NPH) | 2 appearances | 1 goal | 1 assist
Brought in to bring a bit of maturity into the position when needed and refinement, Ford is towards the older side of the players in the national team. That's not to say he isn't fresh or willing to get stuck in. However, Ford is very much an individual player who subscribes to individuals working together to form a team, rather than a unit of players working together which is the view Comi more aligns with. This probably explains why Ford is generally more selfish than other players and could go some distance in explaining why Southern Hampton City wasn't slightly higher than they finished. Undoubtedly, Ford is good in his role with 11 assists to his name across the past season, but his selfishness and own ambition, which saw him score 8 goals across the past season, also saw his team miss a number of chances and lose out in chances where if he had passed to someone else, they might have scored.

STRIKER: Declan Smith | 29 | IFK Aldenskoett (COS) | 104 appearances | 69 goals | 13 assists
Smith has a real eye for goal and always seems to know how to turn every play into an opportunity on goal, even when it seems there is no chance on goal. He can score goals from anywhere and any moment, it's almost magical. His assist number is a lot lower because he is always looking for goals, sometimes meaning he ignores an obvious opportunity that a teammate has to score, making him seem a little selfish. However, he is always trying to do what is best for the team in his own eyes. He can dribble and move well with the ball, although he isn't the fastest striker in the world. However, he does have good vision and knows where to move to shoot and to receive a pass. This makes him a dangerous player to be facing.

STRIKER: Scott Burgess | 26 | Loconstead United | 99 appearances | 46 goals | 11 assists
Burgess is a very fast striker, allowing him to breakway and rip apart defences with his speed and surpise. He is especially effective on the counter attack, but is also very useful as a point striker, because of his vision and his short-range shooting abilities. He is weaker at long-range shooting, and is not the greatest at headers. However, he is a strong team-player, and fully dedicated to his team.

STRIKER: Lukas Cole | 29 | Falourr (EUR) | 34 appearances | 12 goals | 6 assists
He is more of a team player and passes the ball a lot more than other strikers such as Smith. Sometimes, he can be too unselfish, harming his own goal tally, as he misses what could have been an easy goal for himself to pass the ball to someone else. This can also lead to mistakes in passing the ball, resulting in his team missing out on a goal completely because of a mistake. He is a relatively fast striker. However, he is weak on the ball and can easily be pushed off, so needs a little more space to shoot than other strikers. Doesn't like being under pressure too much.

STRIKER: Luke Roberts | 29 | North Laithland (NPH) | 3 appearances | 1 goal | 0 assists
Pacey, and good at finishing. Not much of a team player. Good with the head, but has a poor left foot. Good on the break. Believes he is better than Deloitte and thinks moving will help him in to the national team.

STRIKER: Denis Classie | 29 | New Sarum | 1 appearance | 1 goal | 0 assists
Classie is a smart, but back-to-basics, young striker. Acting as a target man, he can take it anywhere and make any turn needed. He's good with the head, both feet, or any part of the body needed, and is good running on to the ball with through balls, especially in one-on-ones but also good at longer shots. Basically, he doesn't do much else.

The stadium is situated in New Sarum, the capital of Ethane. New Sarum is the metropolitan hub of Ethane. Home to around 2.8 million people, it is nestled on the south-west coast of Ethane.
The stadium can hold 50,000 people in the setup as shown above.

The Marianne Detreux Stadium

The stadium is located in Southern Hampton, which is on the southern end of the Isle of Lowe. This is off the coast of Ethane and is accessible by boat and plane, with special ferries and flights put in place for when matches are on. The airport is small however on the island, so much of the travel to the Isle of Lowe is by boat. The Isle of Lowe is a beautiful place with heavy focus on natural beauty. The northern side of the island is very mountainous and is great for hikes.
The stadium can hold 25,550 people.

Newton-Smith Arena

This stadium is located in Letson, located in the south of Ethane. The city is heavily reliant on the tourism industry, with a decent beach and strong historical connections and landmarks as part of a tour of Ethane. The city is very rich in its cultural history and art which can be seen as you walk around the city. Letson is home to around 650,000 people, but feels a lot more homely than the other large cities.
The stadium can hold up to 26,000 people.

My opponent, if they RP first, may do the following:
Godmod scoring events: No.
RP injuries to my players: Y. (I have the right to change the length of an injury)
Godmod injuries to my players: No.
Give red cards to my players: Yes.
Godmod other events: Potentially. If unsure, give me a TG. Nothing massively ludicrous.

<drawk> If the entirety of the nation of Ethane was covered in a single cubic foot of Ethane on its surface, lighting it all on fire would cause a 5.44 megaton blast.

STARTERS


#1 - Dieje Ibrelaná - GK - Age 24 - Image Urbizania Wanderers Image
IPA: /ˈdjeʒe ibɾelaˈna/

While the sight of an Urbizania Wanderers starter would've made many tremble in the past, this is not the case anymore. That doesn't matter, however, because Farfadillis is really struggling to field a good goalkeeper right now, and Ibrelaná just might do. He's acrobatic and his positioning is good. We can't ask for more right now. Yes, he can be shaky when playing as a sweeper keeper which is - perhaps - not ideal in a team like this. He is young and, much like most Farves, very fast, so he could very well grow into the role, though. He'll be sitting in the bench for some of the less important matches as Pam gives Isak Aanderaa a chance, in the hopes he turns out to be better than Dieje.

#6 - Moisés Fermández - LB - Age 30 - Image Bastion Image
IPA: /moiˈses feɾˈmandes/

Moisés Fermández spent most of his best years relegated to the bench of the national team because of Baldomero Teijeiro barely edging him. Teijeiro's insubordination and slight decline have now given him a chance to take the starting spot he must feel is rightfully his and show what he can do with it. Moisés is solid-ish defensively and as much of a menace up front as you'd expect a Farf fullback to be. He's starting to lose some pace, but he makes up for it with a lot of experience - namely a decade spent playing in the Euraleague - and calm leadership.

#2 - Çìríkò Ûsêtêrnìx - CB - Age 30 - Image FC Felsenkirchen 1879 Image
IPA: /t͡sĭˈɾikŏ uăˈseăteăɾnĭʃ/

Ûsêtêrnìx has big boots to fill: he is replacing one of only two Farf centerbacks to have managed to hold the line decently, and one that lead the defense to a World Cup win no less. He's doing an ok, six-out-of-ten job, but his domestic performances have convinced Pam to let him keep starting for now. He's a Galáctico now, after all. Part of why he's struggled to adapt to the national team, though, is that he is very much not in Bajnok's mold: he isn't as physical, but much more capable with the ball. He's not as aggressive as a player, and is not as tactically-astute, but compensates for that with athleticism and a tendency to go for sliding tackles. This has, perhaps perplexingly, not backfired yet. Maybe Pam just needs to find the right tactical set-up for him to flourish.

#4 - Têrçêr Ànáxímane - RB - Age 21 - Image Dí Maozöxê Image
IPA: /teăɾt͡seăɾ ănˌaˈʃimane/

One of the few positives from the latest AOCAF Cup. Têrçêr may be young and he may have come out of nowhere. He also may not be specially talented. But he clearly doesn't mind the pressure of being thrown into the starting eleven overnight. Very pacey, with good technique and defensively somewhat okay. What more could Pam ask for right now? We'll tell you the answer: a move to a different league. She really wishes Têrçêr would move to some more defensively-oriented league in order to pick up a defensive skillset that would set him apart as a (maybe) world class player.

#5 - Sürgân t'Öéséné - CM - Age 29 - Image Marine Coast Image
IPA: /ˈsʏɾɡa:n twe:iˈsene/

A very dependable player. Unlike most Farves, Sürgân does not have a crazy style of play: he's quite measured in his decisions, and never lets pressure get to him. He is the smartest player in the team, and is always in charge of the tempo. As the most "defensive" midfielder in the line-up, he will also be tasked with trying to keep the control of the midfield when not in possession. Overall, an unenviable role, which he pulls off to almost perfection... most of the time, nowadays. It is one of the most important roles to be filled in la Vherderoja's tactical set-up, and nobody else comes close to him in it, so his starting position is safe despite his recent slight decline. Sürgân is the most unsung of the World Cup heroes, perhaps because his club form is quite the far cry from his international form.

#3 - Ígnîgo Çí Xôrí - CM - Age 22 - Image Mâ Âlâmëómë Image
IPA: /ˈignjăgo t͡si ʃoăˈɾi/

Ígnîgo's ascent was simply meteoric. In a matter of months, he went from a squad player in Mâ Âlâmëómë's youth team - presumably close to getting sold off to some mediocre team - to NT starter. He's managed to hang onto his starting position, even if by the skin of his teeth. He's got great technique and vision, and is quite decent defensively. That said, there are similarly talented young midfielders in the bench who will be desperate to take away the starting spot from him. If his recent club form is any indication, though, they'll have a very tough time doing that.

#10 - Faragó rue Cazade - TK - Age 29 - Image Brinemouth Image
IPA: /faʁaˈgo ʁu kaˈzad/

Faragó is indisputably the best player on this team, now that Xíxì Êns has retired. He is a notoriously difficult player to contain. Why do you think Brinemouth destabilized the Szoirsian economy (admittedly not that hard) in order to sign him? He is great at timing his runs to always get that elusive chance at a shot from the edge of the box with some space to spare, and he is deadly when gets these chances, to say nothing of the fact that he is quite tall and a considerable aerial menace. He plays as a takilante, a position invented for him by his former manager and mentor Ichi Tuzzio. He will press a lot, play roughly as a center midfielder to increase the team's presence in that area, and commit a lot of tactical fouls. With what little energy he will have left, he will score, and often. He has recently and very suddenly become wildly inconsistent, though. Let's hope this last AOCAF Cup was the last of that.

#8 - Vínseslâdís Wìjìnì - LW - Age 31 - Image Busukuma AC Image
IPA: /ˌvinsesla:ˈðis ˈwiʒĭnĭ/

Being the son of the most famous terrorist in the history of Farfadillis hasn't stopped Wìjìnì from setting pitches on fire. Figuratively. Without a doubt the most versatile player in the team, Wìjìnì is good at just about any offensive task he gets assigned to do, and is a natural at the intricacies of every role, to the point he hit the ground running as center midfielder in World Cup 84, putting in good performance after good performance en route to the title. He is now being played in his "natural" position, if such a thing exists for him anymore. In reality, it's the position he used to play in when he was younger. As a winger, expect him to use his pace and strong weak foot to cut in and make something happen. Or maybe run down the flank and do some old-fashioned crossing of the ball. You never know with this guy.

#11 - Tôsgo Alxíkí - RW - Age 20 - Image Lâ Lüs Image
IPA: /ˈtoăsɡo alˈʃiki/

Following in the Farf tradition of one insanely talented young prospect popping up as the last one hits his thirties, Tôsgo is here to become the best Farf player for the next five years... in five years. For now, he's good enough to start, and that's about it. Astonishing pace, great technique, a good shot and fantastic dribbling - coupled with an "indomitable will" if you're into cringey descriptions - make him one of the hottest prospects in the Multiverse. One of the few positives of the last two years.

#9 - Edmün Çídh - ST - Age 23 - Image Mâ Âlâmëómë Image
IPA: /ˈedmʏn t͡sið/

Edmün played a huge role in World Cup 84, scoring the winning goal against Banija in the group stage. The win eventually let la Vherderoja advance to the knock-outs, and the rest is history. His development momentarily stagnated for two years after that, but Edmün is now back on track. He is a very complete player. Fast, good at dribbling, good at playmaking and good at finishing. He is reportedly not a great influence off the pitch, however, and apparently has a very cold relationship with his brother, with whom he'll be playing up front this cycle.

#7 - Röémün Çídh - ST - Age 21 - Image Rülândéá Kôstä Image
IPA: /ˈrwe:imʏn t͡sið/

The less-talented-but-slightly-taller-and-stronger-and-that's-gotta-count-for-something version of his older brother Edmün, Röémün is a very hard-working player who you'd be forgiven for thinking is not Farf at all based on his personality. It is rumored this is precisely why Pam has so eagerly handed him the starting spot - though it can't be denied he did fairly well last AOCAF Cup, specially against Flavovespia. He appears to possess a - clearly very ironically - very good connection with his brother on the pitch and only on the pitch. He's also much better than his brother at poaching, so there's that.

SUBSTITUTES


#12 - Isak Aanderaa - GK - Age 25 - Image Bruul Skewers Image
IPA: /ˈaɪzək ˈa:ndeɾa:/

A flashy goalkeeper, Isak loves to be the star of the show. Both on and off the pitch. He will try to dribble his way out of the box, and succeed most of the time. He also has terrible positioning, but likes to make up for it with some incredible saves. The talent is there. In reality, Isaak has the potential to be one of the best goalkeepers in the world, if you ask any Farf. Alas, he is very much set in his ways, and they are not good ones. Nonetheless, Pam is desperate for a decent goalkeeper and is willing to test Isak out a bit and see if he is one.

#23 - Berény Phelede - GK - Age 29 - Image René Skaé Image
IPA: /bəˈʁeni ˈfəled/

When Berény Phelede first started a game for Farfadillis, he became only the fifth goalkeeper in the team's history to do so. All four before him had had illustrous and long careers. He bucked the trend. One cycle later, he's been relegated to third goalkeeper. But hey, he's still got solid reflexes and is good at organizing the otherwise horribly disorganized defense. He's supposedly much better playing for his club, too, so maybe he was just unlucky with the NT. If the other two get hit by a bus or something, we might find out.

#15 - Loxjilo Exihosahar - LB - Age 22 - Image Royal Rumiatzi Image
IPA: /loksˈxilo ˌeksiɦoˈsaɦaɾ/

When Lele Manguele, Royal Rumiatzi's bizarro Farf manager, signed an unknown Farf amateur from Induja of all places (you don't know what this means if you're not Farf, but suffice to say Indujans are bad at football), nobody expected him to actually hold his own. But hold his own he did, hanging onto his starting spot for two seasons now, even having some quietly good seven-out-of-ten games here and there. He's fast, pacey, rapid, swift, speedy, brisk, fast-moving and quick. He is also ok defensively and can cross the ball kind of well.

#14 - Drì Lsôs - CB - Age 27 - Image Crossroads Image
IPA: /ðɾĭ lsoˈãs/

Perhaps the most attack-oriented centerback Farfadillis has ever produced. Some say Pam is hoping to start fielding a back four, and Lsôs could be instrumental in that transition. Her first few attempts were quite dreadful, truth be told, but maybe the team just needs to get used to the idea. Drì is a fantastic dribbler and is very good at passing. You'll see him try to surprise his opponents by surging forward every now and then. He's definitely the kamikaze option at the back and, as such, Pam is unlikely to sub him in unless a crazy match is exactly what she is looking for. Alternatively, she might look to throw her opponents off by playing him as a midfielder.

#13 - Chuy Villaverde - RB - Age 30 - Image Raven River Image
IPA: /t͡ʃwi ˌbiʃaˈbeɾde/

Farfadillis' dearth of right backs has reached new heights, some have begun arguing after it was revealed that Chuy Villaverde, plying his trade in the deceptively-named First Division, in Nephara, would be called up for the national team. It has been at least a decade since a non-top-flight player made the squad. However, the First Division is perhaps the strongest second division in history. Chuy brings something completely new to the table: a decade of playing either in the Premiership or in a league with completely different defensive paradigms. He's solid going forward but, most importantly, a very defensively-solid fullback. Ànáxímane should watch out because the second he falters, Pam won't hesitate to give Chuy playing time.

#16 - Lőrensz Ziczi - CM - Age 20 - Image René Skaé Image
IPA: /ˈløːʁenʃ ˈzit͡ʃi/

When the FFFF submitted a fully amateur team to the Eagle's Cup, everyone would've thought they'd lost the plot if anyone had at all believed they'd ever had it in the first place. However, that team's surprisingly good performances, only barely falling short of winning the tournament, led to the call-up of the guy who showed the most promise. He's now one of René Skaé's best players. A very complete player with no clear weaknesses - when you account for his age - and with a sometimes quite astonishing playmaking skills, he's definitely a player everyone should watch out for.

#17 - Archard Ezaa Robé - TK - Age 21 - Image René Skaé Image
IPA: /aʁˈkaʁd ˈeza: ʁɔˈbe/

Another one for the future. René Skaé have tried to emulate Faragó rue Cazade when developing Archard, and some results are starting to show. He can play the takilante position really well for his club, so if Pam is feeling adventurous she can sub him in for Faragó if he gets injured and still keep the same tactical set-up, only with a huge downgrade in quality. Archard is a very good player for his age, though: very fast, a pretty good finisher and an enviable physique. He can run for hours and hours. Let's just hope he doesn't run himself into the ground before turning into a key player for this team.

#21 - Emiliano Gallegas - LW - Age 22 - Image La Nueva Avenida Image
IPA: /emiˈljano gaˈʃegas/

A winger with insane pace and a lot of attitude. His pace alone makes him hard to control, but add in good dribbling, good crossing and nerves of steel and you've got someone bound to give Wìjìnì problems keeping his starting spot the next few years. Pam is a big fan of his direct style - direct even by Farf standards - so expect him to feature if a game is still unresolved and there's only a few minutes left. He's got the perfect skillset for such situations.

#20 - Folgore Alaminos - OM - Age 20 - Image Jungle Strike Image
IPA: /folˈgoɾe alaˈminos/

The son of ex-NTer Santos Alaminos. His father used to be a sensational fullback for Farfadillis. He was, in fact, arguably Farfadillis' first world class fullback. Folgore is nothing like his father, however. They share their tactical astuteness, but Folgore can't tackle to save his life. He is, however, a fantastic playmaker and a dangerous presence inside the box. A very typical offensive midfielder, really. Football, apparently, simply runs in this family. He has been having trouble breaking into both Jungle Strike and the NT, but his talent is still very evident.

#19 - Éric Pueyrredón - RW - Age 22 - Image Real Atlantea Image
IPA: /ˈeɾik ˌpweireˈdon/

Éric was not rated very highly in Farfadillis. He's not as fast as the average Farf winger, which didn't help his case. However, getting continuously turned down by professional team after professional team did not hold him back in the slightest: at some point, he just said "fuck it" and left for Taeshan, where no Farf not named Wolf van Rossuma or Adrián Raya had been. There, his non-blistering pace did not immediately disqualify him from being a winger, and he could shine for what he is: a pretty decent wide playmaker with some pace and very good crossing. He tracks back, so of course he got the call-up.

#18 - Salomón de Zúñiga - ST - Age 23 - Image La Nueva Avenida Image
IPA: /saloˈmon de ˈsuŋiga/

With the sudden retirement of Xíxì Êns, and the forced retirement of Oskar Holsteiner, Pam is now basically grasping at straws when calling up strikers. Salomón de Zúñiga is a solid striker, no doubt, but he's very far from the quality of a Farf NT striker. He's quite young, but not young enough to merit a call-up based on potential. It's clear he's been called up on the off-chance that he turns out to be much better than expected... and also, out of desperation. He's fast and good at dribbling though, so there's that. Now, if only he knew how to finish...

#22 - Çè Quîrîjá - ST - Age 21 - Image Lâ Lüs Image
IPA: /t͡sĕ kiăɾiăˈʒa/

Lâ Lüs' astonishing rise from amateur fodder to Champions' League round of sixteen team and FFL runners-up was, mostly, a product of Alxíkí's performances. However, in that squad there was definitely a second-best player. As Pam seems to be deadset on giving young players priority in her call-ups, we'll likely be seeing Çè get a few minutes if a game is already decided. Quîrîjá is a very fast striker with lethal finishing. The rest of his skillset could use some polishing, but "run fast, shoot" is, when done well, a winning strategy. Truth be told, though, he's so far failed to achieve the heights of his first season at Lâ Lüs, which has seen Röémun Çídh steal the starting spot from him last AOCAF Cup after an injury.

FORMATION AND TACTICS
The more complete the circle next to the player's name is, the more adept at his role he is, compared to the position's other possible roles.
Image


After the failure that were the last three competitions - two of them played on home soil - Pam Scott has decided to do away with some elements of the golden World Cup-winning formula for this cycle. The team will dial back on their tempo when in possession to tire the players out less often, while focusing much more on pressing and counterpressing. Pam will take no prisoners: if you don't want to run, you don't want to play.

In goal, Dieje Ibrelaná will try to be an ok sweeper keeper. Though he's not got the best skillset for it, he'll have to adapt: any other kind of goalkeeper would be suicidal with this set-up. In defense, Çìríkò Ûsêtêrnìx will be tasked with starting counterattacks with precise long balls and also defending the massive hole in defense that this formation leaves. He is particularly good at this, unlike his predecessor Kósa Bajnok, but does not shine as much as an actual defender. Fermández and Ànáxímane will help him out defensively, but they'll still prefer to play wide. The two of them will be extremely tired by the end of any match, since they'll be running up and down the pitch the entire time, as well as trying to keep as narrow a defensive shape as possible. Unlike their predecessors, neither Fermández no Ànáxímane will have particularly suicidal tendencies going forward. They'll both look to overlap when they join the attack.

Sürgân t'Öéséné will be playing the fancily-named role of segundo volante. He'll be responsible for recovering the ball as any other holding midfielder, but he'll also look to arrive late at the box and go for perilous long shots or some smart assist. Ígnîgo Çí Xôrí will be tasked with running a lot, recovering the ball, playmaking, etc. Much like Sürgân, but in a slightly more advanced position, and he is not tasked with dictating the tempo. On the left wing, Wìjìnì will be tasked with running up and down the pitch endlessly. He will, however, try to cause havoc up front, playing the part of a traditional winger and/or an inside forward, depending on what the situation calls for. On the right wing, Alxìkì will be expected to use some of his youthful speed to break past defenses. He sucks at defending, but the youngster can tear apart any defense at a moment's notice, and it is his brilliance that Pam is banking on if rue Cazade fails to crack the opponent's defense. Faragó rue Cazade himself will operate as a takilante, something Tuzzio came up with and that nobody's sure is actually a real thing. The gist of it is that he'll play in the position of an advanced center midfielder, try to arrive late at the box, press a lot, try to score, get carded often, etc. His performances will most likely make or break this team.

Up front, Pam has done away with the false-nine-plus-actual-nine set-up and will instead field the two brothers Edmün Çídh and Röémün Çídh as advanced forwards. They'll have to press a lot, that's for sure. Besides that, they're expected to sneak past defenses and bang in goals, hopefully cooperating towards that end in the process. As the cycle goes on one of them may take on a more supporting role, but it's unclear who that would be: Edmün is much too talented to be a supporting striker, according to himself, and Röémün's skillset is not really conductive to providing his brother with enough service. For now, they're just two good old-fashioned strikers.

The team will look to play a vertiginous game, with few passes wasted on recycling possession. Farves live to have the ball at their feet, but also to do something exciting with it. Expect them to press, counterpress and generally look desperate to recover the ball. The further up the pitch you manage to go with the ball, the more in danger they are. However, if you do lose the ball while attacking them, they'll almost always try to start a counterattack. They're very adept at it with their direct passes and astonishing pace, so try to make your chances count. Finally, the three-man defense will obviously use the off-side trap, as it's a natural choice with such a high defensive line and three players.

When holding a lead, the team will be much more eager to recycle possession and wait patiently for a goal. In that case, passes will still be direct, but less so. When chasing a game, though, expect some of the most urgent football the Multiverse has to offer.

As a final note, rue Cazade and Wìjìnì like to switch roles for small periods of time to throw some defenses off, specially when they're finding no open space. They're remarkably versatile players, so their performance is not impacted too heavily by changing roles. As a winger, rue Cazade is less pacey but more physically-imposing and technical, whereas Wìjìnì is faster as a takilante and slightly better at linking up.

PROJECT UNFARFADILLIZATION


In addition to the 23 players already outlined, Pam Scott will also be calling up some players from the following pool. This is because the WCC has never explicitly said that the player limit is 23, and we're testing them. The idea behind these call-ups is that the following pool includes only players that have escaped Farfadillis at a young age and usually of their own volition, which makes them less likely to present the more problematic aspects of Farf idiosyncracy in their play. That's the theory, at least. We'll have to see it in practice.

It is worth noting that many of these players are potentially very bad. We don't know enough about them to be sure.

Intro:
Following on from their Fourth Place Finish at World Cup 85 in Mriin & Farfadillis, the Commonwealth of Baker Park has established themselves solidly as one of top 10 national sides in the multiverse.
They will be seeking to extend their record of qualifying for every World Cup Finals to seven consecutive appearances since their debut in WC 80, which came on the heels of their runner-up finish in Baptism of Fire 67.

This almost certainly will be the last hurrah of the core players who have led the way during the mixed gender NT era, the first generation that were the products of the FAC Development Scheme introduced by Executive Director David Carlson.
They have re-written the record books for Baker Park soccer, and will take their place among the historic teams of past eras—the sides managed by Oliver Pettibone in the early 1950's that earned BP's first ever victory after 14 winless matches previous over a four year span; the late 60's and early 70's teams led by Lionel McHugh to start and then Colin Riordan; and the 80's revival by George Charleston that won 2 out every matches between 1981 & 1988.

My opponent, if they RP first, may do the following:
Choose my scorers: Y
Godmod scoring events: Y
RP injuries to my players: Y
Godmod injuries to my players: Y
Give red cards to my players: Y
Godmod other events: see below

I decided it would make things easy for everyone by adding this brief explainer to help with the RP permissions.

In general, assume that I am 'Yes' to everything. I appreciate a heads up via TG if you want to send one of my players off or have them suffer an injury in the match. "God-modding" situations is not something I've seen utilized by very many players in NS Sports. If you want to have a zombie apocalypse interrupt the match, or a sentient creature perform an otherworldly feat, ask me ahead of time. I don't operate in that dimension of the game, but if you've got something that would make a great RP, I'm open to your pitch.

As a nation, we won't play dirty or cheap—unless there is a storyline that might bring about an exception (see AOCAF 60)—and our players will behave as mature, professional adults.

In qualifying, we generally will switch up our roster for every two-match home & away "international break" and I will give you prior notice as to who is in the squad for a particular set of matches, and you should also assume if I list a starting lineup for the first game, in the other game there will be squad rotation where players on the bench will see action. If I get lazy and don't update, you have the freedom to select whomever you wish.

Ask if you have a specific RP theme you'd like me to participate in, as I do enjoy collaborating with others.
Best of Luck to everyone!

Maccian Football Association's Squad For The World Cup 86 Qualifiers


Maccian Lamrejwaffeasosst Gang Ruhr Das Worden Koup 86 Kanzenguttim


Image



Brief Team Introduction:

It was predicted that Maccian would be pummeled in the AOCAF with the experimental side that Gelinas sent. That would be... an understatement. The Riflemen were only able to earn one point in the group stage and was promptly booted out of the competition. That tournament was a testament to 'if it ain't broke, don't fix it'. Maccian will have hopefully learnt from that disaster of a tournament and now under Angelo Gelinas, the Riflemen have seen many changes and additions to the squad along with tactical reforms.


Nickname: The Riflemen

Manager: Angelo Gelinas, Age 48 from Quebec

Angelo Gelinas, in some ways, is the very definition of 'the balanced Quebecois' which, while sounding oxymoron, is plausible by any means. Earlier in his life, he had a very illustrious, well-celebrated career with Avenida Principal in Farfadillis and the Quebecois National Team, where he played a significant role as both their star forward (playing style: complete forward). His highest achievement as a player was his significant role in Quebecois NT's 2 quarterfinal finishes and a 4th place run in the World Cup.

Since his retirement, Gelinas moved onto a managerial career, where he steadily climbed up the ranks before being named the manager of Montreal Koreana, the most historic and winningest team in Quebec. There, on a club that needed an uptick in form from 3rd-6th finishing range, Gelinas managed to bring back the Koreana with 2 Q-League titles and 2 Coupe du Roi titles before continuing his career abroad with Marinos Metropolis. There, he led the longtime Valladar powerhouse to 2 mediocre league finishes (9th and 6th) in LFV, but have also won a King's Shield (Valladar FA Cup) and had 2 deep runs in the newfound IFCF. After his firing by the Marinos, he hopes to continue his managerial career with Maccian, a national team with high potential and balanced playing style he likes emphasising about.

As a manager, Gelinas is a guy who focuses on a balanced style of play with a typical Quebecois flair the game. With his famed work ethic dating back to his playing days with Avenida Principal, Gelinas expects all his players to be on top of a rigorous training regime and be clean with executions. That said, he's not a disciplinarian himself, and will turn blind eye to his players' off-turf antics, granted they perform well.

He is an accomplished manager who has won trophies and so will help this young Maccian side towards future greatness and prosperity. We only have the Supreme Leader to thank, because he is the one who negotiated this deal with Gelinas. Although his rigorous training regime could lead to a lot of injuries considering these are teenagers and young players still early in their careers, Gelinas has taken our team to a new level with his tactics.

Stadium: Royal Imperial Stadium, capacity of 105,812

Image


At long last, the Royal Imperial Stadium has been constructed, which cost a total of £1.34 billion. The Maccian National Team will be playing all home games and the MFL Playoffs Final will also be played here. The Royal Imperial Stadium will also serve as a way for His Majesty King Timofeé to spread more propaganda host events related to the (lack of) Royal Family and Maccian.

Situated in the southwest of Maccian in the city of Singlewave, the Royal Imperial Stadium has the famous Sandringhal Beach only 10 minutes away, which is the number one tourist sport for Maccians escaping the cold and miserable rainy parts of the country everywhere. This will also be the first eco-friendly stadium in Maccian as it will be powered by purely solar panels and will be zero carbon-emitting. Fans will be urged to take a pedestrian route but electric cars are allowed and car parks will offer free charging points. No alcohol or recreational drugs will be present at this stadium to prevent any drunken and high football hooligans getting into fights with opposing fans when an unfavourable result happens.

World Cup Qualifying Roster and General Info


Published by the anglophone branch of the Federal Council of Sport, this is the official guide to Zeta Reka's world cup campaign for this exciting edition of the World Cup. After another run in the Campionato Esportiva, and a gaggle of youths playing at the olympic games, the national team of Zeta Reka is ready to strike back in world cup qualifying. The Rekan team looks to improve on their initial blast into the world's game.

Last time, Zeta Reka was matched up against four teams with major trophies, and were able to sneak into third place. However, they were the lowest ranked third place team in the entire qualifying tournament. Analysts have worked hard, and so has the football association. The Rekan Team, all of it's players and look to qualify for the world cup with a retooled, refined, and refueled team. Here you'll find all the info you need to know about this exciting campaign.*

Roster (starters italicized)
12: Zlatko Wukowić
Age: 24
Height: 185.25cm/6'1"
Caps: 12
Goals/Assists: 0/0
Club: Lonngeylin City (Vilita)
Wukowić is a young player who has been rising up the ranks in the national team since the very start of the national team. Due to his age and form while playing in Vilita, the baby faced Zlatko is a long term number one for Zeta Reka. He's expected to start around seventy five to eighty percent of matches for the national team in the World Cup campaign. Scouts are looking for his form to keep up when he plays against some strong attacking teams.

01: Bosko Nowak
Age: 39
Height: 194.75cm/6'4.625"
Caps: 36
Goals/Assists: 0/0
Club: DD Porto Nowi
Nowak is aging to be sure, but he still can play on the national team according to Coach Dusan's paperwork. Nowak was adventurous during season 76 of the Federal Football League, but he could still sweep in the games he starts. Speaking of starts, rumors earmark Nowak to around one start every five or six matches. "I'm just running the race set forth, in more ways than one." Nowak said in a TV interview describing his role as a veteran in football.

27: Klaudio Rekawić
Age: 28
Height: 185.25cm/6'1"
Caps: 0
Club: Aleiusia Riverside
Rekawić was always on the margins of goalkeeping greatness. A wonder kid in between the sticks, Rekawić's senior career began with some meager seasons for various clubs. A loan spell on the third tier was the young man's nadir. However, getting the nod at Aleiusia Riverside was a huge boost. by age Twenty five, Rekawić was one of the best goalkeeper in the "FLF ZRiH Divizija 2" and has been strong in Division 1 for two seasons running. This string of good fortune has given the bald and bearded Rekawić a chance to play on the world's stage.
Left
04: Janko Yakowić
Age: 30
Height: 193cm/6'4"
Caps: 37
Goals/Assists: 1/3
Club: Aleiusia Capital
Yakowić is thirty, but can still move the ball up well in a wide system. He's a good option for building up on the flank, and can pass deep across the pitch. He can also use his skills as a youth striker to be useful in set piece play. He plays at the club level with his twin, who was injured in the last league season.

05: Steffanow Kostessen
Age: 26
Height: 181cm/5'11.75"
Caps: 16
Goals/Assists: 0/1
Club: Aleiusia Capital
Kostessen has grown into the national team since the last world cup, and has even made an assist. Kostessen always looks to shock the world with unexpected moves. It's just too bad the prime talent usually surprises his partners on the line.

Right
03: Bartolomej Wladmirowić
Age: 30
Height: 171.33cm/5'7.5"
Caps: 46
Goals/Assists: 3/2
Club: KT Morezeura (Audioslavia)
Wladmirowić is the most capped player on the national team and a vice captain. A strongly technical player who can move the ball and attack forwards with accuracy at any section of the back line. He's playing at a high level in Audioslavia, and has given that nation's football a great review. "I'm in to win," the veteran defender said on social media an hour before the NT's first practice session.

15: Wladmir Zuzkoff
Age: 30
Height: 174cm/5'8.5"
Caps: 23
Goals/Assists: 1/1
Club: VZRH Matov-Uri
Zuzkoff has been a stalwart on the left flank for his country. He can also dip into the center for both club and country. He is getting older, and this could be his last cycle, assuming the young left back actually develop like the nation hopes.
26: Wlad Wlad
Age: 24
Height: 192.5cm/6'3.875"
Caps: 11
Goals/Assist: 1/1
Club: Ogroven Vanguardi FK
A young defender, Wlad Wlad continue to grow as a player and is now a part of the starting eleven for his country. The offense breaking Wlad Wlad didn't do much in the Campionatio Esportiva, but was an award winner in the league.

14: Jan Thimig
Age: 29
Height: 203cm/6'7.875"
Caps: 18
Goals/Assists: 0/0
Club: Ogroven Vanguardi FK
A team mate of Wlad Wlad's, Thimig was a solid backup in qualifying for the 85th World Cup. Thimig was a regular in the 26th Campionatio Esportiva. Shots were stopped, and in eight WCQ appearances Thimig earned a lot of respect or disrespect in the Rekan media giving some sick tackles.

13: Wladmir Bogdanić
Age: 29
Height: 185.66/6'1.125"
Caps: 26
Goals/Assists: 3/0
Club: VZRH Matov-Uri
Bogdanić is a dependable brute of a center back who has been a Rekan All-League player multiple times. The VZRH Matov-Uri captain came on to play two times in regional competition. Bogdanić came on as a sub in Zeta Reka's shocking loss to Hampton Islands in the round of sixteen. Even with a bad loss for the country, confidence is high in the wide man.

28: Wuk Koziwier
Age: 23
Height: 177.5cm/5'9.875"
Caps: 9
Goals/Assists: 0/0
Club: FKP Ottowić County
A tiny dynamo, Koziwier did well in the Campionatio Esportiva, but was not impressive enough to continue starting. The kid is still young though, and this tournament is a great opportunity to spread his wings.
06: Mullow Dorboslawić
Age: 30
Height: 174.66cm/5'8.75"
Goals/Assists: 3/2
Club: DD Porto Nowi
Some observers were critical of Dorboslawić showing poor form in big matches, plus a drop in quality in the Federal League. Coach Dusan still hold out hope for Dorboslawić to maintain quality. However, other reports state that in terms of starting games Dorboslawić may be splitting the difference with his backup. When this fuzzy chinned ball charistma is playing, expect to be a playmaker from deep.

17: Stani Gröss
Age: 25
Height: 174cm/5'8.5"
Caps: 27
Goals/Assists: 0/4
Club: 1830 Cathair FC (Audioslavia)
Stani Gröss has slowly been maturing in his deep lying role. He got a good contract to play for one of the best teams in the world. One does not need to be smart to assume that playing the world's best will give Stani an amazing skill boost. Some say this lightning fast, ball stealing, line patrolling destroyer should start. Others disagree, calling him soft. Gröss has avoided drama, sayng "I'll play where I need to." after he returned to his home country to practice for the national team.
10: Rybki (Prodanowić) (c)
Age: 37
Height: 176.25cm/5'9.625"
Caps: 39
Goals/Assists: 10/11
Club: DD Porto Nowi
At thirty seven, he is still going. In the campaign the national team captain is even deeper lying than in past international events. Skill and set piece quality are what Rybki brings to the table. However, his immense popularity is what is keeping him on the team. "He is essentially the first famous footballer in our country." Culture and Sport Minister Liza Bogdanić told reporters in an interview her about the world cup. Coach Dusan offered similar word. "The kids in the reserves grew up watching him. If he keeps healthy he could play people younger than his career one of these days. If you're like him, people will listen to you."

30: David Dix
Age: 30
Height: 179cm/5'10.5"
Caps: 32
Goals/Assists: 3/6
Club: Aleiusia Capital
Dix did well in regional competition, and is getting another spot on the national team. He can still make some good plays, and wicked shots, but it is obvious his form isn't as world class as it was when he was twenty eight and younger.

11: Želmir Kolarowić
Age: 29
Height: 190cm/6'2.75"
Caps: 37
Goals/Assists: 10/12
Club: Kven FK
With two league titles in his trophy cabinet, Želmir Kolarowić is a name ethced into this era of Rekan football. Even with all the praise at his feet, Kven's top man is looking for one more trophy to really fill the room. When playing, Kolarowić will look to move up and make crooked the paths on defenders. Assists and goals are not uncommon for Kolarowić, and his free kick game seems to get better with age.

21: Denis Silvester
Age: 24
Height: 182.75cm/6"
Caps: 5
Goals/Assist: 0/2
Club: Platinastigrade
Silvester has been moving from the middle to the margins on this national team. But his shifts have come with good reason. In this case, Silvester is the youthful vitality of the centeral midfield. Silvester is a strong presance and could get plenty of areal balls. "I'll be gone for my mother's birthday," Silvester said on social media. "Hopefully when he's in Starblaydia his mama will see him win!!!1!" A random teenager wrote in reply.
Left
07: Jad
Age: 27
Height: 184cm/6'0.5"
Caps: 41
Goals/Assists: 2/10
Club: Aleiusia Capital
Jad, is a five time member of the Federal League's All XI Team. Mr. "Jad ibn-Tariq ibn-Janko al-Ghozali" can play with either foot, cutting in as a dangerous inverted winger, and playing methodical corners from his normal side. Jad's last appearance for the national team was in the second half of Zeta Reka's loss to the Hampton Island in CE27. He did little, but on average Jad will get an assist or a goal around every three matches.

19: Stojan Heiden
Age: 25
Height: 162.75cm/5'4.125"
Caps: 23
Goals/Assists: 4/2
Club: AK Stanimir
The smallest player on the team, as per usual, Stojen Heiden was a senior player at the XIV Olympiad, and he's one of two Olympians on the national team's main roster. Heiden is a ball passer and a runner by day, but defenders should be warned that "The Bright Boy" gets a kick out of stamping toes. One other important fact is that unlike other wingers, Heiden has struggled to play inverted.

Right
18: Albertow Nowak
Age: 27
Height: 175cm/5'8.875"
Caps: 20
Goals/Assists: 2/4
Club: Brisara City (Chromatika)
Albertow Nowak was blisteringly fast in the Rekan national teams practice session according to an anonymous team mate. Well, we know the anonymous tip came from one of the player named Nowak, but we are not sure which one. Humor assist Nowak is one of the best attacking threats on this side at the moment, as will be looking to score a flashy goal or five in this cycle.

08: Miloš Simeoniwić
Age: 25
Height: 178cm/5'10.125"
Caps: 39
Goals/Assists: 3/3
Club: Kven FK
Simeoniwić is built in the mold that Rekan wing players seem to all fit. He is a solid combo of quickness, pace and kicking accuracy. He can invert himself just as well as any other winger on the team. With good play Simeoniwić could keep his long term prospect bright as this player reaches his peak.
09: Bogdan Rawić
Age: 22
Height: 166.25cm/5'5.375"
Caps: 31
Goals/Assists: 18/0
Club: Aleiusia Capital
By far the best scorer in the country right now, Rawić uses quickness to be where nhe needs to be during his team's windows of opportunity. Rawić has been the top scorer in the Federal League three years in a row, and is looking rack up a high score in the World Cup.

29: Arnald Gal
Height: 177.5cm/5'9.875"
Age: 21
Caps: 1
Goals/Assists: 1/0
Club: DD Porto Nowi
Gal is the second player from the U-23/Olympiad roster. He has been capped for youth teams three times, and has both scored and assisted. He is a player with high potential, but he may need to be
Marko Dusan
Age: 65
Record: 23-11-13 (72-49) (+23)
Coach Dusan will be in another qualifying cycle, managing his team to score more than before, and defend better. That sounds obvious, but that is what the team needs. Dusan has hand picked the team's players to qualify for the world cup, something Dusan always wanted to do, but could not as Zeta Reka did not compete in international sport's during Dusan's playing days.

Tactics
Image
Using a 4-5-1 with functionality like that of a 4-1-4-1, the Rekan team attempts to control the center while keeping the back line thick. The team will, on defence, keep itself solid and compact, trying to keep high against teams that Coach Dusan labels as soft. In demonstrably dangerous conditions Zeta Reka will look to block lower and stamp out penalty box play. When taking the ball back, the team will look to start from behind, avoiding the center backs and playing up the middle to the defensive midfielder.

When attacking, the team will play in the center and look for open wingers. Wing players should be on the move and be a threat on deep runs. Winger looking for an assist are given permission to cross, but should instead look to work methodical passes into the box. Half backs provide a support structure to the attack, making sure there is an extra passing option in any midfield situation. The forward player will be tasked with being in the right place at the right time, and given the team's tempo oppertunites are anything but abundant. Set peices are also a way to score for the side, with the team usually stuffing six or seven players inside the box, hoping the speed will prevent counters.
Formaion: 4-5-1 or 4-2-3-1 (rare)

ROYAL ZIWANA FOOTBALL ASSOCIATION PRESENTS:

The Ziwani Football National Team to the 86th NS World Cup Qualifiers.

Reigning Champions of the CMFA Melayu Archipelago Cup

Ziwana are an upcoming footballing country. They have shown their talent and quality in previous competions having achieved the following; semi-finalists in the 3rd CMFA Cup, Bronze 3rd Place Playoff winners in the 3rd CMFA Cup, quarte-finalists in the 71st Baptism of Fire, 2nd place in the 84th NS World Cup Qualifiers, 4th CMFA Cup Champions, 1st CMFA Nations League Champions and 5th CMFA Cup Champions.However even with this success, Ziwana has struggled in several other competions being knocked out in the group stages with the must abysmal performance being in the 85th NS World Cup Qualifiers (NSWCQ). In the 85th NSWCQ Ziwana lost their leader in captain Jean Wilder, this left the team playing like headless chickens.Ziwana had previously won success and recognition with their shot passing, possesive style of football locally known as umodzi, umodzi(one, one), but in the 85th NSWCQ this style was replaced by the boring aggressive long ball style football locally called cheka, cheka. The poor performances and boring football led to must Akambuku fans not going to games infact most of them do not even remember the events. The events of the terrible world cup qualifiers were followed by Novid-19 which caused a locked down in Ziwana and the cancellation of the Ziwana footballing season.When the 5th CMFA Cup came around although strong favourites, Ziwana had been disadvantaged by the lack of football in months. However, the Akambuku stepped up and showed their attitude to adversity and won the 5th CMFA Cup to defend their position as the best Melayu Archipelago national side. After the 5th CMFA Cup win manager Harry Ngonamo stepped down, he was quoted; "I have achieved everything I can with this side and given my level best in selling Akambuku as a side to respect, it is now time for me to end my journey here and give the reigns to someone fresh who can take the national team to greater heights." Most Ziwani fans are however skeptical, attributing Ngonamos step down to bad blood between him and new captain Charles Payen. Ngonamo has been replaced by former Ziwani captain Jean Wilder who retired from football due to injuries. Jean Wilder is a fan favourite and in his time as a Ziwani player, scored 46 goals and led the national team to 2 trophies. In the upcoming 86th NS World Cup Qualifiers, Ziwana will once again feel like a new team in the competition due to its new manager and may struggle but all Ziwani fans just hope that the Akambuku can show their talent and great attitude to overcome all obstacles and take a step closer to the promised land that is the world cup proper especially in the Ziwana Football Associations and Ziwana's 100th year anniversary. It has been a 100years since Ziwana gained its independence from Brittania and the ZFA was founded, with this in mind everyone hopes this may soften Magaletta's heart and allow Akambuku to prosper.

Players in bold are default starters. Other players are substitutes, but for the purpose of the qualifiers, some of the other subs might start the match.
Information about the player selection can be viewed here for the 23 players who played in the Baptism of Fire, with a separate RP highlighting remaining 6 players to come later.

Coaching Team
Something unique to TGI would be it's co-manager system. Originally, it was intended for 2 of the 4 managers of the respective state teams to come together co-manage the TGI combined team, however, after discussions, it was agreed for all 4 managers to come together and be co-managers for the TGI combined team.
The 4 co-managers of the TGI combined team are:
OKN National Team manager - Rudolf Rostami, 68
NHA National Team manager - Jurica Bouchard, 56
SJR National Team manager - Eetu Eichel, 53
HKR National Team manager - Silas Unterbrink, 48
Among the 4 managers, Jurica and Silas brought the team to Chromatika and Valladares for the Baptism of Fire, while Rudolf was the manager in charge of the Otksarin team that went to Southern Palm Islands and Choudal for the Melayu Archipelago Cup. All 4 are former managers of top clubs in The Gothanita Isles.

Playing Style
Having undergone the Baptism of Fire and the Melayu Archipelago Cup, the team this time has decided to go with a safety-first approach, prioritising defence over attacking, and choosing to settle for defensive plays rather than attacking. Conceding less is prioritised over scoring, and the team would much rather present 0-0 draws or 1-0 wins as compared to going for big scorelines.

Style Modifier: -3.1415
Formation: 4-2-3-1 (default); 4-1-2-1-2, 4-3-3 (alternate)

Home Stadium Allocations, and Info about the Isles
The Gothanita Isles is effectively a group of islands. The islands are made up of 4 main states, namely Otksarin, North Handoria, South Jeolerina, as well as Hallikshire. All 4 states are located in different region, with different culture and living habits. The ruling style in the Isles is that individual states have their own form of government, and that all 4 states will send representatives in annual meetings to decide how the Isles, as a nation, such proceed forward on matters such as diplomatic ties, internal and external security, as well as economic growth.
For the duration of the World Cup, the 9 home matches by The Gothanita Isles shall be held in all 4 states. Travelling within member states is free and easy, with public transport being the go-to option most of the time. Some states, such as North Handoria and South Jeolerina, have imposed restrictions with regards to the usage of cars and private transport, so do check them out before visiting the states. The major cities, where the matches will be held, are well connected by air from major cities in AO, Rushmore, Esportiva and Melayu Archipelago, as well as selected independent nations, such as Poafmersia, who has had long-running ties with the Isles.
To travel between states, there are 2 main ways of travel. The first way of travel is by air, of course, and there are frequent domestic flights between the big cities in the Isles. The other, is by underground train. Under the seas, the Isles have built an railroad tracks between the 4 states, allowing for inter-state services. There are also express services that reaches from 1 major station to another in under an hour. However, as the train services are primarily reserved for Gothanitans, therefore, there are some restrictions for foreign visitors, therefore, they are not encouraged to take the train. A list of train stations with express services are as follows:
Otksarin
Kuala Pekatanan Capital Station
Jerbula Train Station*
Tyakrita Train Station

Halliksire
Hongshire City Station
Tyrani Train Station
Yhens Station

North Handoria
Mondown City Station
Darikna Train Station
Hellina Train Station

South Jeolerina
Jeolerina City Station
Manclester Train Station
Poolside Train Station

*Jerbula Train Station is located 30 minutes away from Alor Hangor by train and 15 minutes away from Jerbula by train, the 2 major cities in Jerbula.

The stadiums used for the matches are as follows:
Otksarin, Melayu Archipelago
Bongali Park (82,000) - Kuala Pekatanan
Located in the capital of Otksarin, Bongali Park is home to the biggest club in Otksarin, Bongali United. Kuala Pekatanan is the most developed city, being the place where major companies set up their headquarters, as well as where the Sultan of Otksarin lives in.
This stadium will host Blouman Empire in Matchday 7.

Hangor Stadium (cap. 73,240) - Alor Hangor, Jerbula State
The stadium is one of the biggest located in Otksarin, located in Alor Hangor, a major industrial city in Otksarin. It is home to Alor Hangor FC, one of the bigger clubs in Otksarin.
This stadium will host Quakmybush in Matchday 15.

Hallikshire, Esportiva
Dykist Lane (75,000) - Tyrani, Cambell State
Choosing this stadium over those in the capital came as a surprise, but the people in Tyrani would surely welcome our opponents with pride. They have a very strong footballing culture in the city that has created one of the biggest clubs in Hallikshire.
This stadium will host Pripet Socialist Republic in Matchday 13.

North Handoria, Atlantic Oceania
Arenes Stadium (78,000) - Mondown City
Biddlibugh (72,150) - Mondown City
Mondown City is the home city of North Handoria, and naturally feature 2 large stadiums in Arenes Stadium and Biddlibugh. Mondown City is the biggest city in the entire Isles, and it becomes natural that the city will host 2 of the 9 home matches the Isles is playing this qualifiers. It is noted that North Handoria has very well developed technological structures, and these stadiums are of course part of the development. Retractable roofs, ability to change the field for other purposes, are just some of the special technology these stadiums have.
Arenes Stadium will host Xanneria in Matchday 5, while Biddlibugh will host HAIKU in Matchday 17.

San Sarino (58,120) - Hellina
Located in Hellina, a very quite district in North Handoria, San Sarino is a stadium with lots of rich history. It was the home of both Hellina City and Hellina United, before the former moved out just 8 years ago to a smaller multi-purpose stadium. San Sarino could be considered as one of the only stadiums built for football left in North Handoria, hence the importance of the stadium.
This stadium will host Free Republic of Hong Kong in Matchday 3.

South Jeolerina, Rushmore
South Jeolerina is the most football-crazy among the 4 member states, and they are proud to host the triple-header from Matchday 9 to 11, where the Isles will host 3 really difficult opponents from Atlantic Oceania.

Stadia Hangshire (79,000) - Jeolerina City
Home to Hangshire FC, the stadium was originally intended to be the national stadium of South Jeolerina before the union with the 3 other states. Hangshire FC has one of the longest histories amongst Gothanitan clubs, and they are one of the founding clubs of the Gothanita Football League (GFL). The stadium has recently seen upgrading and renovation works, making it the 2nd largest stadium in South Jeolerina and the 3rd largest throughout the Isles.
This stadium will host Tamgu in Matchday 9.

Kangarsta Lane (82,500) - Jeolerina City
The biggest stadium in the Isles, Kangarsta Lane is the place where battles have been forged. Many big single-leg matches, such as Royal Gothanita Isles Cup matches before the current format was introduced 5 years ago, were held here. It is therefore, fitting, that the best team in the multiverse currently, Banija, will play the Isles here in Matchday 10.
This stadium will host Banija in Matchday 10.

Alexa Manclester Stadium (75,000) - City of Manclester, Manclester
Located in the city centre of Manclester, it is named after Alexa Arnold, one of the founding fathers of football in the state, as well as the founder of Manclester City, who calls the Alexa Manclester Stadium their home. Manclester fans would be honoured to be able to host one of the 9 home games for the Isles, and they will turn up in full force for their match.
This stadium will host Chromatika in Matchday 11.

I give my opponents permission to do the following for their RPs:
- Choose my starting lineup, goalscorers, substitutes. This must be done in reference to the details provided in pre-match RPs/main roster, such as the 11 starters listed above, and the players' styles.
- Godmod any scoring events, subject to these events being realistic. (Eg. Long range balls from midpoint line/goalkeeper line is allowed, RPing a fast ball boy that allowed for the corner to take place amid chaos is allowed, but something like having a pigeon swoop down from the sky to push a ball in is not allowed.)
- RP or Godmod injuries to my players. These injuries can occur inside or outside the match, however, you only RP what happened. (Do TG me so that I will take notice, especially for godmodded ones.) The extent of injuries, as well as the duration of the player being out, is decided by me.
- Hand out yellow and red cards to my players. However, the number of red cards can only be 1 more than the number of red cards you give your own players.
- RP or Godmod any other events, with the exception of any pandemic-related events. No pandemic in my nation, no pandemic on my players. Do TG me if you wish to let me know of any other events you plan to RP, and I am willing to cooperate if necessary.

Reçueçn Roster & National Information

Image
Sporting History

Reçueçn has just barely been in the World Cup long enough for people not to ask 'who?' when they hear the name. The nation has had few opportunities to make forays into the world of international football, but those it has had have been mostly successful. Reçueçn debuted in the 59th Baptism of fire, before the 72nd World Cup, but accomplished very little before disappearing from international football for 10 cycles.

During this period, domestic sport in Reçueçn fell into disarray as well. Only recently did things change, when a young legislative staffer named Jean-Luc Lassalle began an initiative to resurrect organized sport in the country with the government's assistance. The result of this push was the creation of the brand new Reçuecian Ministry of Sport, which promptly reorganized domestic association football leagues throughout the country and got things moving once more. Lassalle himself became the new Minister of Sport, despite his young age.

For the national team, this meant involvement once more in international competition. Reçueçn's first chance to declare its return came at the 7th Independent Associations' Championship. To the surprise of everyone, including its own fans, the unranked Reçuecian national team managed to win 3rd place, taking home its first silverware of any kind. The team itself largely consisted of the same squad that had partaken in the Baptism of Fire and World Cup qualifiers all of 10 World Cup cycles ago.

The team had struggled back then, due to the rivalries within Reçuecian domestic football, and those old wounds came back with the reestablishment of the national team. During the Baptism of Fire and Reçueçn's first international competitions, the players hadn't really had enough experience playing with each other to develop the necessary camaraderie or team spirit. Hopes were high that the creation of the Ministry of Sport would herald in a new era. Since the team was largely the same, some of the rivalries came back at first, but the team's performance at IAC 7 smoothed over its troubles and the team gelled.

Riding high on their third place finish in the IAC, the Reçuecians launched into their first qualification attempt since World Cup 73. This time, things were different: still officially unranked, Reçueçn miraculously managed to qualify for the world cup in its first attempt, even making it as far as the Round of 16. Reçueçn's first-time qualification and its consistent qualification since then is most likely the sporting accomplishment for which the nation is most known. The nation returned to the IAC even stronger and more confident; this time it knew what it was capable of, and it was hosting to boot. In its second IAC, Reçueçn got everything it could want: victory at home.

Since then, the Reçuecians have held steady but failed to make any meaningful advances. The nation hasn't advanced past the round of sixteen in either the IAC or the World Cup in either of the last two cycles. Has the team been cursed to by its spell as a prodigy to live forever in the shadow of its early successes? It's too early to jump to such a dark conclusion when the team has still been experiencing Margaret's favor, but it is certain that after another disappointing regional showing, Reçueçn is on the quest to prove itself this World Cup.

All time record: 74-36-35

National Team Information

L'Équipe Nationale de Reçueçn de Football is still in the process of making a name for itself, but if it's known for anything, it would be for its defensive style. This is partly due to the large influence of Reçueçn FC on the team—the most popular domestic club in Reçueçn plays about as defensive a game as you can imagine. This is balanced out to some extent by the players from other teams with more attacking philosophies, but the league as a whole tends towards defense, and it shows in the national team. Furthermore, Gerauld Firaut, the team's #1 goalie, is the best player on the team by a solid margin—without a doubt, Reçueçn's first world-class player. He and his defense form the foundation for the team as a whole.

National Team Logo
The team plays in a 4-3-3 formation, but sometimes the wings drop back, almost making it a 4-5-1. In general, the team's strategy and tactics are solid—Jacques Tremblay, the coach, knows his stuff despite his age. A couple cycles ago, amid rising concerns over Tremblay's health, the team signed an official assistant manager for the first time in Bonheur Relié, whose fiery personality contrasts Tremblay's gentler wisdom. The team's weakness would be a possible lack of talent—Reçueçn has not yet had the opportunity to develop or train true world-class quality players.

The Reçueçian National Team's mascot is the unicorn; thus another name for the team is "les licornes". The fantastical creature has been a symbol of Reçueçn for almost two millennia and is also the national animal, appearing as the supporters in the national coat of arms.

The team's kit represents the colors of the flag in a quite literal fashion. The jersey was recently redesigned, replacing the first one the Unicorns ever wore, dating back to the 59th Baptism of Fire. Fans who thought the old outfit ugly are excited to see the team play wearing its new uniforms, and feel that they are now represented much more professionally.

Reçueçn has only one stadium in which its national team plays, located in the capital city (also named Reçueçn). Never having been given an official title, the national stadium is usually simply referred to just that: The National Stadium, or in French, the local language, the Stade Nationale. Capacity: 30,000.

Coaching Staff
Jacques Tremblay: Old and wise, Jacques Tremblay is often seen as the father of modern Reçuecian football, known for his eternal ability to innovate and surprise. He had retired, but when asked to coach the national team, did not refuse. He, along with Gerauld Firaut, holds together the national team. Reçuecians tend to forget how ridiculously old he is, and anyway, he's all they've got.

Bonheur Relié: Passionate and motivated, Relié has all the youthful energy you'd hope for in the assistant coach of a side whose manager is pushing three quarters of a century. Sometimes his energy can be a bit much and he's had some friction with the players in the past.

Starters
Gerauld Firaut: The face of Reçuecian football. Mature, talented, humble. Firaut, team captain, provides the leadership on the pitch that les licornes need, and the fact that he's such a nice guy when he's not playing soccer helps cement him as the nation's favored son. As some of his Reçueçn FC have retired or not been called up for this tournament, his exceptional goal-tending skills combined with Tremblay's strategy has preserved the team's defensive nature.

Emanuele Cutrona: Cutrona was in the first batch of call-ups for the National Team after the original Baptism of Fire squad, and he's still one of the youngest on the team. Until Di Martino's call-up, he was the only Italian-speaking player on the team (although others are from Italian-speaking clubs). He's developed a strong friendship with Franky Adams, which often leads to the pair of them getting in trouble.

Paulin Bourguignon: Bourguignon is the kind of defensive player who is always trying to clear the ball with long shots and score goals at corner kicks. Big on counter-attacks, he sometimes outpaces the mid-fielders, usually to his coach's dismay.

Lukas Kayserling: Very tall. Calm and controlled. Sometimes has difficulty communicating as he doesn't speak English or French as well as most of the other team members.

Oliver Spencer: Annother star defensive player from Reçueçn FC, Spencer is often outshone by Firaut, and for a long time Spencer couldn't decide whether the rivalry he thought they had was more important than team spirit or not. By now he has found his groove as part of the all-important back line.

Raoul Lavigne: No relation of the slightly more well-known Hippolyte Lavigne, Raoul is the second sophomore of the team: not one of the original squad but not a brand-new call-up either. He caught the NT's scouts' eyes after helping Bonneville Sportif to a couple good seasons. (He now plays in Baker Park.) Playing outside the nation has given him new things to worry about, namely, if his teammates leave him out of things since he's not a 'local' anymore. He doesn't realize how ridiculous his fears are, but fortunately they push him to prove himself every time he steps onto the field.

Harold Saunders: Saunders is synonymous with an aggressive style of play, especially in the midfield. He seems to always be able to find a way to give the ball to Franky. On and off the field he is emotionally well-balanced, usually rather stoic and unmoved.

Maynard Hebron: The unsung hero of the Assalto Alpino, Hebron is a great proponent of football development across Recuecn, especially on behalf of the smaller amateur teams that have recently joined the FNRF. Hebron often gets lucky with long shots from the edge of the box when the strikers are unable to really get open right in front of goal.

Per Tegeler: Good at receiving the ball from the defense or mid-field, trapping it in general, and taking it into the 18-yard box and shooting. Possible weakness is passing: either he doesn't, or it's long air balls. Per is the big change to the line-up since the world cup—the aging Hippolyte Lavigne was not called up again, and so now Tegeler is starting.

Frank "Franky" Adams: Young, extremely talented, and rather cocky, Franky, who plays for Association Genève in the LNRF, really makes their team. When he has a bad shooting streak, his team has a losing streak, and vice versa, and he knows it. At Association Genève, the team and the fans love him. At the national team, they tolerate him—his rivalries with Reçueçn FC's players cause tension which Coach Tremblay must try to defuse. Tremblay, incidentally, thinks Franky is a bit conceited, although he is still one of the most aware of his talent. Franky is definitely the second most famous player on the team, at least to Reçueians. His role up front helps with that, obviously.

Freeman Lebo: Lebo can score goals, is highly motivated, and persevering. He's comfortable in the striker role. However, he is high-strung and not too difficult to offend, traits which, when combined with his overestimation of his own skill, can make him difficult to get along with. Has lots of potential when a manager can get him to swallow his pride, and Tremblay usually can. Lebo and Franky got off to a rocky start but since then they've really meshed well, and they give each other great service often leading to one of them scoring.

Reserves
Estienne de Chefderue: Both of les licornes' reserve goalies were recently replaced, and de Chefderue got the number one number two spot. Last season at FC Harrim he did well, and he got some practice in the Eagles Cup when Tremblay subbed him into a lot of matches. It remains to be seen how he'll fare in a tournament that means a bit more.

Hagen Groos: A Reçueçn FC representative, yet again: Groos is sweeper for the club, which is supposedly the best in the country. It's probably confusing for him then why the starting sweeper position is handed to the younger Cutrona rather than him.

Jayson Compton: Not a ton to say about Jayson Compton. He's a mysterious fellow and we don't quite know what he's up to ourselves.

Quirino Lucian: Lucian has the look of a rugby player, and he'll take all the intimidation he can get from that: he needs people to know he's not afraid to muscle them down as they approach his goal—because he's not. He'll mess you up.

Barnabus Mercer: Called up for the first time at twenty-seven years old after doing very well in le championnat, some people questioned this decision of Tremblay's. Certainly it was the strongest on paper, so we'll see how it pans out. If you can believe it, Mercer played for a San Lleran club team more than ten world cups ago.

Robert Chéreau: Chéreau's biggest issue is that he tends to drift toward the center when he shouldn't, yet he ironically seems to have a very good idea of space and where to be in it, which is good for a player in his position.

Grégoire Leclair: Leclair almost never plays at the same time as Saunders. Usually, one is subbed for the other depending on whether more defensive or offensive tactics are called for at the moment. Leclair's specialty is going back and clearing the ball in difficult situations. There were thoughts Leclair wouldn't be called up this year, which would've been major news, but I guess he's been doing well enough in Savojarna for Tremblay.

Quentin Gouin: The team's new youngest player, he has breath and speed and agility. The stamina is sometimes lacking.

Marc Schöner: Schöner is the latest call-up, replacing Tegeler on the bench now that Tegeler is starting. He's fresh from winning le championnat with his club (Stomford 1904), so he's got all the energy and drive you could ask for, along with all the pride and self-assuredness.

Ly Nasser: Loves to shoot from far out, and often shoots high. Despite this, he makes up for it with his sheer number of shots. Incredibly aggressive, and loved by Zimmerich fans. Thinks he is one of the best strikers in the world, and he certainly is a good player. Weirdly he gets put on the Reçuecian reserves, you'd expect him to be playing with Lebo and Franky.

Jean-Baptiste Brochard: Immensely fast, especially with the ball, Brochard is weaker in set pieces and organized attacks. His strength is the counter-attack and the breakaway.

Calanico Di Martino: Unfortunately Di Martino's given name doesn't quite just mean 'soccer,' although it is close. His parents must have known there was something special about him. He has a toe that moves with wings—useful for delivering powerful goal kicks but perhaps wasted on a player who never gets to shoot.

Reçuecian History and Culture

The nation of Reçueçn was created in the first half of the XIVth century, when Carl Blancpic, Duke of the Duchy of Reçueçn, launched a breakneck military campaign invading and annexing many of his neighbors to the east. Before this time, Reçueçn had been only a city, built on the heights overlooking the junction of the Rhône and Saône rivers. These heights had been settled by Carl Blancpic's distant ancestor, Ifheda Rcuecn, near the end of the IInd century a.d., and had born his name ever since. The area at that time belonged to the Roman Empire, who had established their regional administrative center, Lugdunum, on the other side of the river.

In 197 a.d., a decisive battle was fought near Lugdunum in one of the civil wars for the throne of the empire. The victor, Septimius Severus, razed the city of Lugdunum and destroyed it, stripping from it all imperial privileges in punishment for supporting his rival. This was the end for Lugdunum, but it was the beginning for Reçueçn. Refugees flocked across the river to join the settlement, and the city of Reçueçn grew to become a smallish regional center. Rcuecn's descendants (who changed the spelling to Reçueçn) maintained control over what became the Duchy of Reçueçn for 700 years, until it was inherited by their cousins the Blancpics who reigned for another 300 years.

At the beginning of the XIVth century, power passed into the hands of Carl Blancpic, who was partially insane and a megalomaniac. Thus he declared his duchy to be a kingdom and singled out weak neighbors who he invaded with audacity. Over an incredibly short period of time beginning in the spring of 1337, he had carved out for himself a sizable dominion.

Carl, who styled himself "Carl III of Reçueçn", was violent, unstable, and petty. He was also wildly unpopular with the populations of the various states he had conquered. Although the central power structure helped the economy of the new Kingdom of Reçueçn to some extent, it did not bring with it all the stability that might have been expected. This was mostly due to the decrees of Carl III, who, among other things, began a campaign to persecute and kill all "heretics" within his new realm. Most historians agree that this was in fact a thinly veiled purge of his political rivals. This and other policies he enacted on his whims finally drove the people into open revolt sometime around 1352.

Carl managed to hold on to power for a couple years by hiring mercenaries, but in 1254 lost two key battles and was captured by the rebels. By this time, the rebellion was led by feudal lords throughout the country who had sided with the people against their tyrant king. Carl III was executed, and the kingdom dissolved into a mess of tiny, independent feudal holdings.

No sooner had the various states that had been in the Kingdom of Reçueçn won their independence, than infighting broke out among them. The feudal lords squabbled over power and influence, trying vainly to imitate Carl's meteoric rise to power. This new violence, combined with the economic downturn associated with the rebellion and the breakup of the nation, clearly displayed how poorly things were turning out. More sensible minds came to the decision that the solution was to once more unify Reçueçn.

On November 19, 1356, therefore, The Allied States of Reçueçn came into being. The leaders of all the petty states, duchies, bishoprics, free cities, etc., came together and signed what are known as "The Treaties of the Alliance," a document just powerful enough to classify Reçueçn as a single nation by most people's definition, rather than a group of independent entities. The treaties also established a rough form of democracy, with each state represented (although typically by its aristocracy). Thus Reçueçn lays claim to being one of the oldest democracies in the world.

The treaties defined much of Reçuecian history to come. Provisions were made to establish freedom of religion, in order to avoid another scenario similar to Carl III's persecution of his opponents. The treaties also gave Reçueçn an isolationist bent. The nation had been burned before, and wouldn't soon try to meddle in external affairs, especially when its composite nature made creating a foreign policy so difficult.

Reçueçn, then, has managed to avoid many of the crises of European history. It's darkest moment came when Napoleon invaded, proclaiming himself emperor (although he allowed Reçueçn's government to continue to function under his reign). The allied states have drawn closer together, although cultural differences remain among them; they don't even all speak the same language.

Reçueçian culture has also been shaped by its location, nestled in the center of the Alps. The difficulty of travel among mountain valleys ensured the cultural diversity of the nation and preserved local customs. Although rural communities did center around agriculture—especially dairy production—many Reçuecian were forced by the lack of arable land to find other work. This led to a culture of innovation that continues today: Reçueçn is now known for its luxury products and technological exports. This has additionally led to a focus on science and education. The relatively diverse nature of Reçueçn's culture means that some areas are culturally more time-oriented while others are more task-oriented, but this fusion has given the country a uniqueness, especially in art. Reçueçn, perhaps thanks to its inland, mountainous location, or the fact that it was never a colonial power, has seen little immigration or emigration. Recently, however, the diversity of language spoken in the country has made it attractive to refugees from other areas where those languages are spoken.

Visiting Reçueçn

Reçueçn is a small nation, but it's got a lot to see. If you're visiting to attend a world cup qualification match, you may want to stay the weekend to see the sights.

Travelling to and in Reçueçn
If you are coming to Reçueçn for world cup qualifying, you will most likely want to fly into Reçueçn City. As the capital and biggest city, it will definitely have the flight connection you need. Genève, the nation's second city, will also accommodate you in this regard, but Reçueçn city is also the site of every Reçueçian home qualification game. If you are travelling from a nearby country, arriving by rail is also a possibility, and many more Reçueçian cities have international rail connections than have international airports.

For travel within the country, taking the train is probably the way to go. Car rentals are fairly expensive, and many cities restrict downtown access to pedestrians and public transport. When travelling through the countryside, you will find that autoroutes have high tolls, and smaller roads are typically wind annoyingly through steep mountain terrain. However, an extensive rail and tunnel network has been built, and taking the train is fairly cheap between most places in the nation. Bus routes also connect most larger towns. Within cities themselves, public transport is always very high quality and usually very affordable or in some cities, even free. But armed with these tips, the next question is: where to go?

What to See
Presumably if you're reading this, the main attraction that has brought you to Reçueçn are the World Cup qualifying games, all played just a short bus ride away from Reçueçn International Airport at the National Stadium in Reçueçn's inner suburbs. You could also take the metro there without going outside. But if you want to see a bit more of Reçueçn, consider taking a ride up to a cute alpine village and hiking along a mountain ridge to appreciate the amazing views we have to offer. Or go for a swim in a mountain lake and cool off in the shadow of the peaks. If you really are looking to ditch the heat, check out the ice tunnels at the Écho glaciers. Or, if you come during the winter, you can hit the slopes—our skiing's the best in the world.

If the mountains aren't for you, consider visiting our world-famous cheese museum—free samples! Or visit the Genève Cathedral if the culture you're looking for isn't bacteria. Genève, Reçueçn, Zimmerich, and other cities all have beautiful downtown historic districts worth the walking tour. Check them out if your idea of a good time means wandering through medieval fortifications or strolling down cobbled alleys. If what's up your alley is shopping, then we've got that too—check out Genève's luxury district for high end jewelry, fashion, watches, and more. Exchanging your money should be no problem: the Reçueçian guilder is very stable and worth only a little more than the NSD.

Where to Stay, What to Eat
If you are on the search for the perfect hotel for your stay in Reçueçn, worry not. Plenty of all kinds abound in and around each major city, whether you're looking for the four star experience, or just want to save a few guilders. If you'd rather have the personal, local touch, then we've still got you covered: a quick look online will reveal plenty of family-owned bed & breakfasts, as well as short-term rentals with people trying to make some money off the empty spare room one night or week at a time. Hostels are also very popular in Reçueçn, and are a great way to stay near the city center for a very low cost.

What'll you have for dinner? Reçueçn's food is what will make you want to come back for another visit. We love our cheeses, and our national specialty is Raclette: melted cheese scraped over small potatoes, cornichons, and charcuterie. Try it at a restaurant where each table is provided with its own small oven so each diner can melt their own. Another local specialty is Tartiflette, essentially a casserole of potatoes, onions, and lardon (thick-cut bacon) served with a slab of, you guessed it, more melted cheese cooked right over it.

If you find yourself in an alpine pasture hankering for a pique-nique, rather than seated at a fine dining establishment, don't worry, cheese is great for a basket-lunch too. Bring along a baguette and a saucisson, and you've got yourself a meal.

No meal in Reçueçn is complete without a glass of wine, and the local product is certainly worth the connoisseur's time. Reçuecian wine varies immensely depending on whether you're south, west, or north of the Alps, so try a few varieties and pick your favorite. If you need a pairing for your meal, it just so happens that every single person you meet on the street in the country is a self-proclaimed expert ready with helpful advice. Just don't stop them on their way home for dinner.

Do's and Don't's
Do say "Bonjour" to those you pass by in a small town. Don't block the passageway in the metro if you're in the city. Do take your time to enjoy a meal or a conversation in western Reçueçn. Don't be late in eastern Reçueçn. Do greet people with a kiss on each cheek. Don't actually let your lips touch them. Do cheer loudly for your team! Don't insult les licornes in front of their fans. Do take a selfie with your head on the block at execution square in downtown Reçueçn. Don't miss out on your visit because you're on your phone the whole time. Do rent a bike and pedal around to see the sights. Don't be unprepared to parallel park if you've rented a car. Do make eye contact during a conversation. Don't stare at people. Do be ready to share gossip with perfect strangers. Don't expect people to open up to you right away. Do keep your hands above the table at dinner. Don't yawn when someone's talking to you. Do offer to help your host with cleaning up. Don't ask for seconds until offered. Do speak your mind and be straightforward. Don't bank on too much personal space.

Do have the time of your life.

DEMOCRATIC REPUBLIC OF ABANHFLEFT
NATIONAL ASSOCIATION FOOTBALL TEAM - WOMEN


These are tough times for Fleftic football. After having experienced the rise of a so-called "golden generation" of players at right around the same time that Abanhfleft finally joined the greater multiverse, everyone is seemingly losing their heads now that the Fleftic teams are just losing left and right. Rebuilding is the word that everyone knows is being thought but not said, but even that is encountering problems seeing as even Abanhfleft's youth teams are doing very poorly in their competitions. The danger of overperforming in the early years has seemingly finally caught up with the Democratic Republic, and now the Samahang Futbol ng Abanhfleft is having to do everything in its power to reverse a troubling trend and finally get this sports-obsessed nation back on the right track. They tried to do that in the Independents Cup but that didn't pan out as good as they would have wanted. And now it's time for the World Cup itself. It couldn't have come at a worse possible time...

BASIC INFORMATION
Name of nation: Democratic Republic of Abanhfleft
Demonym: Fleftic
Team colors: Blue, orange, and green
Style modifier: +3.00
Formation: 4-2-3-1
Manager: Ginny Katesmar (52 y/o, North Prarie)

STARTERS
GK: Stephanie BRYAN 37 y/o, Antslinngs Islands Women Image
Stephanie Bryan finally gets to represent the blue, orange, and green once again after over four years of sitting out due to a new reliance on the likes of Yannie Redborne and Yelena Valinovskaya to ride the bench while Victoria Carter is on form, but with Redborne now retiring from international footie and Valinovskaya recovering from ligament repair surgery, Steph will now get the chance to be seen riding the Fleftic bench once again. But whether she will be the long-term replacement for Carter and the rest is still up in the air as there are more promising keepers out there, at least according to Holly Jonasson. Finally gets a run out as the starter for the women's national team, at least for the 5th Independents Cup.

RB: Colleen ADAMS 30 y/o, Sporting Ceneisis Women Image
There was a time when people wondered what Colleen can offer to the national side. Seven years on and now we know what it is: defensive solidity in the back four. What more can a team ask for then? Well, maybe less yellow and red cards from Colleen. She's had her fair share of those at club level and the SFA is not really keen on her starting up a new account with the referees at the Independents Cup.

RCB: Christy SHEPLEY 27 y/o, Rosenpfelblatz City Women Image
At 6 feet 2 inches, Christy is already one of the tallest 17-year-old Fleftic central defenders ever in the Democratic Republic and its sphere of influence. Coupled with a supernatural defensive ability, it's a wonder why she's still on the bench and not starting, until one realizes that Christy is quite the thin and willowy girl. She's a good defender and good in aerial and dead-ball situations, there's no doubt about that, but she has to bulk up and get stronger if she is to become one of Abanhfleft's best defenders. She remains on the bench to make way for Miranda Sullins and Catarina Soler in this Independents Cup squad.

LCB: Miranda SULLINS 30 y/o, Sporting Ceneisis Women Image
An exciting prospect if only for the fact that she had gotten herself noticed through the Sporting Ceneisis youth academy, which had been a bit neglected by Artemio Peres in favor of getting players both locally and abroad for as much as his team's Bellinsgauzenian boss is willing to let him spend. Still, it wouldn't do to take away from the fact that she is indeed a good defender, if a bit raw even for the standards of the under-21 teams. And an international call-up such as thing can do no harm to her career. Right?

LB: Deborah RIDDLES 28 y/o, Keephall Valkyries Image
Right now, she's a left back, but Deborah is a natural wing-back who has the potential to develop into an out-and-out winger. Deborah is currently playing with the defense, but only because that is her best footballing position at the moment. Still loves to throw in a cross and will often clog up the left side of the field alongside the team's out-and-out left wingers.

RM: Stephanie WINTER-SLAUGHTER 29 y/o, Marinos Thimpodopoulos Women Image (Fhulghamous Peninsula, playing in the Fleftic Ladies' Premier League)
Winter-Slaughter's surname sounds rather weird when you consider her biggest asset is an unprecedented sense of justice, but it really is. Winter-Slaughter, while a competent midfielder with enough room to grow, became much more notorious for her actions both in and outside of the field, often helping opponents and team-mates at distress from injuries or pretty much anything else. Conquered some hearts for her kindness, funnily enough. Stephanie was given Fleftic citizenship on the recommendation of Heinrich Wurzmann after the disappearance of the Unified Sunrise Islands so that Abanhfleft could take advantage of her talents.

LM: ERIN Jensdottir-Jennings 32 y/o, Rosenpfelblatz City Women Image
We finally come to one of the most controversial additions to Abanhfleft's Independents Cup squad yet. Not a person living in Abanhfleft hasn't heard of the story of Erin Jensdottir and her friend Britt Hanokssen. The two of them had gotten in trouble with an Anglatian gang and their friend Bisera Haralampieva, of Rosen City Ladies and Pridnestrovia women's national team fame, called on another friend of hers to get Erin and Britt out of trouble. They did so by faking Erin and Britt's deaths and substituting them for two dead bodies. Britt and Erin had ended up playing for FC United of Riuwiee in the seventh tier of Fleftic football before they finally came clean about their status, resulting in the biggest ever points deduction in Fleftic football history and a massive settlement package with Hunsen Loggers from United of Riuwiee for both Erin and Britt. Erin is described as the complete playmaker able to operate from deep or right in front with the forwards, which is why Heinrich Wurzmann recommended her naturalization in time for the Independents Cup.

RW: Elene LINER 26 y/o, Sarvusdalamoive Ladies Image
Even at her young age, Elene already has the look of a future fantastic keeper. Well, what else can be said about the Sarvusdalamoive Football Academy, which has turned out great Fleftic keepers like Maksim Varamoninov and Victoria Carter? Unfortunately, she's slipped down the pecking order, but only because Brook Arzate deserves the chance to start this time. She had a lot to make up for after that emotionally devastating penalty shootout loss against Schottia in the 9th Under-15 World Cup and she ended up not having the mental strength to get over the disappointment of the shootout so she decided to become a striker instead. This way she hopes to emulate some of Abanhfleft's star forwards like Matthew Cave and Ruud Akinfenyor who started off as goalkeepers and then decided to make the move up to the top of the pitch.

CAM: BRITT Hanokssen-Hanks 29 y/o, Rosenpfelblatz City Women Image
Erin Jensdottir's best friend and girlfriend, Britt has been called "too ambitious for her own good" by the man who would eventually recommend bringing Britt over to Rosenpfelblatz, Matthew Cave. Britt isn't exactly the best, most mobile, most skillful, fastest, or most accurate player available for the Independents Cup, but she makes up for it in her sheer never-say-die attitude. Other things that other players might consider lost causes are just more challenges for Britt to overcome. That being said, if Britt does end up making an appearance for Abanhfleft, it's probably more out of desperation than anything else. But still, no one knows. Maybe this is the tournament where Britt finally shines bright.

LW: Amelie RUSEV 26 y/o, Ludogorets Markovsky Ladies Image
Amelie Rusev is the best player on current Fleftic under-18 team after Gareth Williamson. At just 18 years old, she's already looking like the complete winger package. Not only is she both quick and light on her feet and strong in the air and during challenges, she is ambidextrous, able to use both feet to send in long balls and crosses into the box when she wants. With that added crossing ability, Amelie is already on her way to the first team of Ludogorets Markovsky Ladies at such a tender age. Kasper Molak will surely look to make Amelie the successor to Raisa Korovina as the next Miss Ludogorets.

ST: Kelly McGINNIS 26 y/o, Hoventon & Corlington Town Image (Mercedini)
Kelly McGinnis could very well be the next Chelsea Stuart. Lord knows she's got the raw talent in her veins and her feet. Her only problem is in getting out of Besanza to continue her development and make sure that it's on the right track to actually making her the next Chelsea Stuart. Kelly wants to move abroad to develop herself in a world-class side, and she believes that the Sporting World Cup is her way to gaining that attention and getting that move abroad. She did well in her first stint abroad, winning a domestic cup with Mercedini's Hoventon & Corlington Town, but another potential loan move to the Gallian Union fell through and she's had to stay with Airbus Besanza for this season. This could very well change though as another opportunity could be opening up for her, but it's going to take her much farther away from the Fhulghamous than just Mercedini...

RESERVES
GK: Ursula QATINTIKI 34 y/o, Crisisbless Athletic Image (Nephara)
Qatintiki is a ferocious keeper who believes herself to be a good sweeper but unfortunately doesn't have all the necessary skills to be an actual sweeper keeper. Fortunately for her, she's managed to keep 10 clean sheets in the Premier Development League (Ladies' Division) for Sarvusdalamoive Ladies. Unfortunately for her, this performance hasn't carried to her first international call-up in the Sporting World Cup, where she conceded a total of 14 goals in the tournament. But the presence of an experienced back four in front of her could help her concede less in this tournament. Despite being a rapidly rising star in Sarvusdalamoive, Qatintiki opted to cut her contract and sign up for the Pridnestrovian Volunteer Legions in ESTORVIPA. She could actually be charged with treason for fighting for another sovereign nation but the SFA has pulled favors with the Ministry of Justice to delay her trial until the end of the Independents Cup.

GK: Bronwyn CHURCHILL 26 y/o, Rosenpfelblatz City Women Image
Bronwyn is the daughter of Rosenpfelblatz City's new manager Joseph "Joe" Churchill, one of the most decorated managers in the sport within the Fleftic sphere of influence. Bronwyn came with her dad to Rosenpfelblatz and immediately settled in well with the Lady Sky Blues' academy. She is a traditional keeper who prefers to keep close to goal and catch or slap away shots from that position, although she is learning to become a more athletic keeper now that she's training with the likes of Yannie Redborne, Marfa Kirilenko, and Blaze Chrzanowska. It should be noted that Joe Churchill would have liked it more if his daughter had not wanted to be a goalkeeper, but at least he as a father won't worry about where she's been before, during, and after training because they're always in close proximity to each other.

RB: Queen YARNALL 23 y/o, Admiral Porcusces Women Image
A quiet and sturdy defender who for her age is already making waves not only in the youth leagues but also in her handful of appearances for the Admiral Porcusces Women senior team. Still needs some work obviously but she could have a very high ceiling indeed.

CB: Brooke AUGUSTYN 27 y/o, Dinamo Bender Women Image (Pridnestrovia)
Augustyn didn't exactly become one of the best fullbacks to come out of Abanhfleft, but at least her career wasn't sidelined by too many injuries either. After a decent showing with Eielo Sunlight Women, she made the leap to Pridnestrovia and Dinamo Bender Women where she did well enough to make her way back to the national team.

CB: Tiera WALRATH 25 y/o, Ogovlich Medusas Image
One quarter of the Ogovlich backline that won them the Youth Premier League title this season. Like Wilton Kaba beside her in the under-18 team, Tiera's main purpose is to win balls inside the box and then kick it right out of the danger area. Accuracy needs a bit of work though.

LB: Tien GOODLETT 24 y/o, Ogovlich Medusas Image
The second quarter of the Ogovlich backline that won the Youth Premier League. Tien is more of an attacking fullback who likes to maraud further up the pitch and assist in the attack. She still gets back in defense more times than not but a particularly quick counterattack could still leave her stranded where she can be of no help to her fellow defenders.

RM: SIBUSIZWE Kiggwancha 24 y/o, Athletic Motonou Image
SIbusizwe's greatest strength lies in the fact that she can win the ball in midfield more times than not. Of course, most of this is against girls and boys on or nearly the same age as she is, but when she turned out for Athletic Motonou's senior side in the last few matchdays of the Ladies' Third Division season (with the title already wrapped up for Motonou) Sibusizwe looked capable of doing much the same thing against players who were much older and much more experienced than her. Sibusizwe won't have to do that against older and experienced players from other national teams just yet, but she will have to do it against her fellow under-18s from other countries starting from this tournament.

CM: Abigail PAPADIAMANTOPOULOS 33 y/o, All-Inclusive Haranguer Image
Abigail is the tallest player in this roster at 6 feet 8 inches, taller than even her supposed lookalike Stephanie Bryan. Abigail used to play Sunday league with Anglatia's Ross Port Rangers before Fleftic scouts noticed her during the 38th Di Bradini Cup and she signed a contract with Wallace Partridge's All-Inclusive Haranguer. Partridge chose to sign Abigail due to her size and her playstyle which is very much reminiscent of one of the most famous (if not the best) players to put on the black-and-amber shirt in Sutalen "The Beast of Copper Cuprum" Desoka. Despite helping All-Inclusive Haranguer to a fifth-place finish in the 2022-23 season, she was never called up for Anglatia's national team, and with the country now returning to its policy of total isolation, Abigail was given Fleftic citizenship on the recommendation of Heinrich Wurzmann so the SFA could take advantage of her skills on the pitch.

LM: Charlene WILLIAMSON 27 y/o, Admiral Porcusces Women Image
Charlene Williamson is the overlooked twin sister of Gareth Williamson. The reasons why she's been overlooked is because her main assets in football are mostly pace, acceleration, physicality, and a good long ball. Charlene can also run with the ball or chase it for 90 minutes and anyone stupid enough to try to take the ball away from her would find themselves on the ground almost immediately. Strangely though, Charlene's physicality tends to vanish during set pieces and Charlene could now count herself lucky if she doesn't end up kissing the grass while trying to get a touch on a corner or a free kick. Perhaps that's why Sporting Ceneisis allowed her to go to their provincial rivals Admiral Porcusces.

CAM: Prudence WOODWARD 26 y/o, Duhblakk Aztecs Image
Prudence Woodward is the third and final player of Panemian descent to represent the blue, orange, and green for the Sporting World Cup. She is the younger sister of Julius Woodward and her future appears to be in central attacking midfield. Prudence is already displaying a taste for clever through-balls and occupying pockets of space in which she could create chances and even score a few goals herself. Prudence has also been rumored to be displaying more than just friendly attention and camaraderie with the team's resident lesbian Poppaea Fleet-Street but that's hardly important to the conversation. But although nothing has been confirmed yet, it could be said that it won't be much of a surprise if Prudence came out and admitted that she has a relationship with Poppaea. Also already a mother after an argument with Prudence led to a one-night stand with fellow under-18 teammate Prince William Luckless.

FW: Annamarie SABADO 31 y/o, Arsenal de Releinthi Women Image
Sabado has the makings of being "the next Fleftic super-sub." No less a footballing authority than Arsenal de Releinthi manager Godric Wexler said so after Sabado had scored the game-winning goal against Lutine to give Abanhfleft a ticket to the Sporting World Cup final. And, judging from her inclusion into the Independents Cup, Heinrich Wurzmann and Miriam Whitaker look to do the same with her for the coming tournament.

FW: Hiroko KELLERMAN 20 y/o, Rosenpfelblatz City Women Image
Kellerman won the Golden Boot in the Fleftic Premier Development League 1 with a 23-goal haul in the 2028-29 season, earning her a promotion up to the senior women's team where she continued her goalscoring form with 21 goals for 2029-30, making her the highest goalscorer of the Citizens that season. She earned a call-up to the under-21 team for the 48th Di Bradini Cup, where she was one of the few bright spots in an otherwise disastrous campaign which once again convinced the SFA to boycott the Di Bradini Cup for real and permanently this time.

Squadra Nazionale di Juvencus

Image


The squad quality and teamwork has dropped significantly over the year. A managerial change to a more offensive manager in Mauro De Casio means the squad is back to full attacking strength. While age may start causing some issues, especially in the backline, the front line strength is full of players near or at the peak of their abilities, which means fast-paced aggressive football won't be much of an issue for them, especially with an experience midfield to support their every step. This team is entering the world cup qualifiers for Newmanistan as well as Sonnelian brethren, Drawkland, with a return to the good old playstyle in hopes of qualifying for the competition once again.

The wellspring has sprung. A new generation emerges to put to rest any anxieties that the good times are over. Brenecia looked... different, at the CE. Sharp at the back, a little overreliant on Galactico winger Lauren Cheney at the front, and while they fell short of the goal there's a feeling that this is developing into Brelk-Xeral's strongest, most mature side yet. While mainstays like Cheney, Matheson, Leadbetter and Wright form the core line, there's question marks on the fringes.

First Team and Tactics
Image
Pace, pace and pace. Brelk-Xeral's mantra isn't hard to understand. They have their side set up to overwhelm opponents with a high press, crowding them with bodies and it's impressive how well-drilled they are considering the limited amount of time international teams get on the training ground. It might be overly simplistic to say they just harry opponents into mistakes and capitalise, but... God, they are good at that. Wheeler, their lethal wingers and the overlapping runs from the fullbacks are relied upon to break down parked buses, as well as the bulk of their centre-halves from set pieces.

Staff
Manager - Brelk-Xeral Erv (QUS) - Age 50
Asst. Manager - Jess Curtin - Age 47

Brelk-Xeral is a visionary. The canny Qusmo is a strong tactician with a forthrightness that gets things done, and their appreciation for open, attacking football meshes nicely with the Southern school of Brenecian football. They favour a solid, trusted core of talent, like Jim Reid - unlike Jim Reid, they are ruthless when it comes to removing players who can no longer pull their weight. The astute former international midfielder Jess Curtin offers the local touch as assistant, having survived the change in regime.

Goalkeepers
Core
1 - GK - Scathach Wright (Image Raynor City United) - Age 26 - 58 caps, 19 clean sheets
An energetic and zealous sweeper, an acrobatic shot-stopper, an inspired distributor - Wright does a lot, and occasionally will make an error, but that's worth it. She's entering her prime, and with Brelk-Xeral's faith comes added responsibility; iron out the mistakes and she's genuinely world-class.

12 - GK - Anthea Finnan (Image Brigham) - Age 24 - 2 caps
Endearingly twitchy, and quick on her feet. Finnan's rise has been thoroughly deserved, but faces an unforgiving battle for even a single cap, in this environment.

20 - GK - Opal Cairncross (Image Marketville) - Age 30 - 7 caps
A hard worker with high ambitions, Cairncross overcame the fatal flaw of not being especially tall or broad to succeed as a goalkeeper in Eura when she hadn't in Brenecia. Faintly bizarre, but she's a skilled and hardened shot-stopper with her sights set high.

Defenders
2 - RB - Clovette Bravender (Image Ulsa) - Age 22 - 19 caps, 1 goal
A young rightback emerging at lightning speed into the public eye; her combination of blinding pace, limitless energy and enthusiastic slinging of crosses into the box mean that there's plainly something special here to develop.

3 - LB - Morwen Prentice (Image Farrenton Athletic) - Age 29 - 82 caps, 4 goals
A lean, elegant fullback, comfortable with the ball at her feet. It takes a special kind of career to make 40 caps before you even become a recognised first-choice. For a long time, she has just been waiting for that extra step in her career; at Farrenton, she's reached it. After nailing down consistent starts, she's officially asked for - and received - the number 3 shirt to really stamp down her place.

5 - CB - Finn Leadbetter (Image Holdenberg) - Age 25 - 42 caps, 5 goals
A colossal defender who loves to put a bit of stick about. The art of defending and the joy of defending remain alive whenever Leadbetter is on the pitch. His destiny is to rise high, and the past couple of years have seen him blossom.

6 - CB - Markus Costello (Image Kingsgrove) - Age 29 - 3 caps
It would not be accurate to call Costello a late-bloomer, but it has certainly only been recently that Brelk-Xeral's paid him any mind. Nevertheless, despite his lack of international experience, he fulfils three main criteria: he's comfortable on the ball, he's a powerful defender, and he's at the peak of his powers.

18 - RB - Sorcha Lonergan (Image Northern Union) - Age 27 - 57 caps, 1 goal
Lightning-quick, Lonergan's attacking play could use work but she's a resolute defender with an excellent mentality and a hunger to learn. She's tireless and energetic, and her concentration never slips.

19 - LB - Triss Roscommon (Image Revolutionaries) - Age 25 - 19 caps, 1 goal
A slender fullback growing in poise and technique with time and trust. The best fullbacks know when to hold 'em and fold 'em, and when to run (constantly); Roscommon has all these gifts and more, as any midfielder would be proud to have her passing range with her left.

22 - CB - Casey Giltanan (Image Workers Union) - Age 21 - 12 caps, 1 goal
Giltanan's more than a statement about Brenecia's paper-thin stocks at centre-half. She is a bona fide talent, taking an early gamble in Eura and hoping it'll come off. Early signs are positive, with Giltanan's mixture of composure on the ball and bloody-mindedness off it papering over occasional lapses in concentration that time should beat out.

Midfielders
4 - DM - Finn Townsend (Image North Hall) - Age 28 - 62 caps, 1 goal
A pure destroyer, with verve to burn. Is a game really complete without a caution? Oh, Townsend is nothing but dirt - and the occasional rocket at goal. There's definitely scope to develop further, but he can do a very straightforward job as things stand.

8 - CM - Elysse Matheson (Image Hornchurch, c) - Age 29 - 115 caps, 34 goals
A pacy, frictionless midfielder, Matheson passed up the chance to develop at high-flying Rozelle to slum it at Hornchurch, doing the hard yards in Eura. It's already brought out a new dimension in her. She's not a passing playmaker, but a driving force from midfield, eager to make a mark on the edges of the box.

13 - CM - Cheney Deal (Image Northern Stallions) - Age 23 - 4 caps, 1 goal
More than just a bruiser, though Deal offers that. He runs tirelessly, battles for every ball, but more importantly knows where to run to and where to be. Technically, yes, he is somewhat less than gifted... but he'll never fade out of games, and has honed what gifts he has to their very apex.

14 - CM - Esther Caitiff (Image Southern Star) - Age 24 - 46 caps, 10 goals
Expert at deft touches and ankle-taps, Caitiff combines a street-fighter's eye for sizing up an opponent with a devil-may-care attitude and the skill to live up to it. Somehow, Caitiff always finds herself embedded deep in the fray.

21 - CM - Dreigiau Parrish (Image Kingsgrove) - Age 23 - 6 caps, 3 goals
Parrish has a history with injuries that makes some nay-sayers wonder if he has what it takes to sustain more than the 30 games a season of the A-League, and certainly those ankles shouldn't be subjected to Nephara. But Parrish is a balletic and graceful midfielder who spins easily past markers and, rarely for Brenecian players, strokes the ball around with comfort and ease.

23 - DM - Tethys Ondrejko (Image Twin Saints) - Age 23 - 16 caps
Ondrejko looks the part of a bruising marauder. A very tired bruising marauder. For all that, she's extremely capable with the ball at her feet, as well as being able to, well, maraud and bruise with the best of them. Pace is her only weakness, thanks perhaps to a tendency to carry a few extra pounds.

Forwards
7 - RW - Lauren Cheney (Image Spartangrad) - Age 28 - 111 caps, 44 goals
A street footballer at her heart, Cheney has a very un-Brenecian ego problem, and expresses it in very Brenecian passive-aggression and a need to work harder and better than anyone and everyone around her. Fast, tough, and with an eye for goal. She has genuinely blossomed into the side's talisman.

9 - ST - Mhacha White (Image Farrenton Athletic) - Age 23 - 21 caps, 12 goals
Like Ursula Rankin, White made her way through FC Endeavour's overclocked reserves program, the Centre for Excellence, before seeking regular minutes elsewhere; like Ursula Rankin, she's a boxy poacher with a quick switch of pace and a great eye for turning. But she's tall. And might actually have a few more strings to her bow, too. The ride's been bumpier than she imagined, and yet, she remains.

10 - ST - Kara Ciogach (Image Lajuno) - Age 30 - 85 caps, 43 goals
The shining hope of Brenecia's strikers, Ciogach is, typically, Schottic. She even won a couple of caps for them. Nevertheless, here she is. She's ambitious, strong despite a lithe physique, fast as hell, and able to finish with either foot or the head. Has abruptly found herself in a fight for her place.

11 - LW - Tricia Pace (Image Northern Union) - Age 25 - 29 caps, 11 goals
It's all in the name, hon. But Pace forced her way into a typically star-studded Union by doing more than just running really fast. She runs direct down the throat, eager to take on opponents and make a decisive impact. Two-footed and eager to cut inside and shoot.

15 - RW - Linoan Waters (Image Brookford Otters) - Age 24 - 7 caps, 4 goals
Waters never stopped looking a little bewildered to be at this level. But she scored a hat-trick on her international debut, and while that was mostly a power-play from the manager she's found her way back into the team as a relentlessly incisive winger.

16 - LW - Ceridwen Fletcher (Image Holdenberg) - Age 26 - 92 caps, 17 goals
It's hard not to couch Fletcher as Cheney's opposite; a tall, elegant Northerner, less versatile or direct but with a peach of a left boot that can be rapier or sledgehammer, depending on what's required. Her potential is immense, and there's every sign she'll fulfil it.

17 - ST - Creidne Lindauer (Image Cazadores Cathair) - Age 29 - 55 caps, 23 goals
Lindauer isn't versatile. She's very quick, very clever, and she's a very good finisher. Nevertheless she has done enough with these few, crucial gifts to staple down a place for herself at a high pinnacle of the club game, and now has seemingly won a role as the preferred spearhead against the strongest opponents.

THE HOLY EMPIRE WC 85 SQUAD

While the nation took a long break from WCs 8 through 24, the Holy Empire is proud to be the only active nation to have participated in WC 1.

Though it pretends not to be, the nation is equally proud to have won 4 World Cup titles


Press Release:

For Immediate Distribution

The Holy Empire Football Association wishes to advise visitors to the Dreamed Realm of the recent outbreak of a novel probability virus, MARG-20 (Moderately Aggressive Reality Garbler 20), believed to be spread by tiny particles known as 'margaretites'.

The probability virus is not dangerous to Imperial citizens, but we do not yet know the impact on mundies, or indeed whether it would prove contagious to mundies. The only impact on Imperial citizens so far is to make the infected prone to experiencing mildly improbably events. Visitors during the upcoming World Cup 86 World Cup campaign can expect to see moderately improbable events take place during football matches; slightly comical own goals may be more likely, star strikers may be more prone to tripping over blades of grass at inopportune moments, balls may deflect off passing seagulls, freak gusts of wind may cause a goalkeeper's clearance to carry into the opposing goal, the name of the Holy Empire's leading goalscorer might - slightly improbably - resemble that of a famous goal scorer of World Cups past, etc. There will likely be impacts outside of football as well, but we are currently unable to predict these other that the infected will experience multiple improbable events and coincidences each day.

Note that these events will only be mildly unlikely, not wildly improbable. Nor do we believe that the virus is dangerous; it is the belief of our leading oneirologists that, should mundies become infected, they will not be more likely to die, though there may be occasions where a death that would have happened anyway will occur in a slightly more unlikely manner.

We hope that this will not adversely impact your enjoyment of WC86 in the Holy Empire.

The Holy Empire Football Association


OOC: It's entirely up to you how you choose to RP interaction with MARG-20. Depending on how you want to approach the topic, you can RP that your nation is immune while noting the impact on the Empire, enthusiastically embrace a mild probability pandemic in your nation after your citizens are infected, or ignore it completely. Because the symptoms are an increase in mildly improbable events, it should also be easy enough to ignore or completely handwave away if you don't want to engage. It's a virus that causes mild finite improbability (which might have escaped after someone hooked the logic circuits of a Bambleweeny 57 Sub-Meson Brain to an atomic vector plotter suspended in a strong Brownian Motion producer; say a nice hot cup of tea), not an infinite improbability drive; nuclear missiles will not spontaneously turn into a whale and a bowl of petunias.

On the other hand, I welcome contact from anyone who wants to collaboratively RP the consequences, whether in a specific football match or more generally if (once?) MARG-20 escapes into Ordinary Reality.

Style Modifiers / formation

Frosty football is attacking football. The Holy Empire always plays a 3-5-2 formation using overlapping wingers that turns into 3-3-4 on the counterattack.

[OOC'ly, for the purposes of scorination, the team uses the maximum attacking style modifier permitted by each cup's hosts.]


Kit
The team will wear famous Imperial Gold and Red, as worn by the Holy Empire since WC1...

(home top, away bottom)

OOC'ly, the kits were designed by Red Blackiland, and the crest by Audioslavia - and I'm entirely grateful; I'm very happy for RB and Audio to take OOC credit. IC'ly, HEFA deny the Mundies had anything to do with it.



Stadium
The Holy Empire plays its home matches in the bejewelled, platinum-domed, and purple stone-walled Imperial Hippodrome, the oldest World Cup venue still in use, and one of the most famous - and impressive - stadiums in the multiverse.


RP instructions:
Have fun and use your imagination - but don't kill anyone, and don't try and launch attacks on the Dreamed Realm; largely because you can't.



Some basic Dreamed Realm RP rules:
Remember that the Dreamed Realm lies entirely outside of Ordinary Reality, and is utterly impervious to harm from what we charmingly call 'mundies'.

Some points to remember about travel to, and playing in, the Dreamed Realm:

1) We control the nature of reality in the Dreamed Realm; reality and time are malleable within the Realm. This isn't used to cheat - all normal rules of football are strenuously followed - but it does have two major side effects:
A) Any injuries to either team in Imperial home matches are immediately healed.
B) No violent or riotous behaviour by visiting fans will be tolerated, unless permission is received in advance (please file applications for violent rioting in triplicate). Any such behaviour undertaken without appropriate permission will find those responsible immediately transported back to Ordinary Reality.

2) Direct travel from ordinary physical reality to the Dreamed Realm is impossible. Some 72 hours before your away qualifier in the Empire, a team of Archregimancy [Eastern Orthodox Christian] monks will arrive in your home stadium and construct a portal to the Dreamed Realm. You may then use this to travel to the Empire at your convenience.

Turori National Team


Head Coach: Klaillal Tuirma
Descendant of Season 4 Turorian Player of the Season and National team legend Cuolia Tuirma, Klaillal often partnered on the pitch with Restiia Mumamba as an "All-Around" player for the Turori National Team. After being brought up through the academy system at Kionao, Tuirma signed a professional contract with Colonial Sile in Vilita for Season 35, winning silverware in the first match, the Tropical Trophy triumph over Strike. Tuirma's stay in Sile didn't last long, however, coaxed back to the luxury of Arcticala Inlet to help in their Champions-Cup qualifying campaign of Season 38. Tuirma returned to Turori during Season 44 as a member of Mliona-Lpaka AFC. Tuirma retired from international competition after winning the 67th Cup of Harmony with Turori. Playing in a unique role throughout their career - being expected to be able to play every game, in every position - even Goalkeeper, if there were no subs left - resulted in a deep understanding of each position on the pitch and the nuances that made each position different setting Tuirma up to be a well respected coach, ultimately getting the nod as the head coach of Turori's National Citizen Squad.

Tuirma has led Turori from out behind the shadow of the chains that held them back for generations, leading the team to their first ever Quarter Final victory, their first ever Semi-Final victory and first ever World Cup Final appearance during World Cup 82. Now, in Equestrian States and Banija, Tuirma has just one more accomplishment standing between them and a larger than life statue outside Eels Park in Eelandii: The World Cup Title.


Nickname: The Eels

Style: -1.23

The coaches will select the squad from the National Player pool. Players are listed below, grouped by position and sorted by projection 'Depth Chart' position where the top player listed is most likely to be named the first player selected for that position, and so on. Depth chart positions are determined by performance in pre-cup training sessions, as well as performance and average ratings in the Vilitan League competition and previous appearances for the National Team.

Note 'Caps" are shown are currently on record for Turorian Players on from the start of World Cup 80 due to federation budget re-allocations during this time period to the Cocoabo Enrichment & Enhancement Project (CEEP)

SULTANATE OF OONTAZ DERT LI NG
NATIONAL ASSOCIATION FOOTBALL TEAM


This is the third time that the Sultanate of Oontaz will participate in the World Cup qualifiers. The Sultanate got through undefeated in the group stage of the Baptism of Fire 61 but was knocked out in the round of 16 by Arioslavia. The nation is a mix of Muslims and Catholics, with the Mohammedans concentrated in the northern part of the country and the Christians living mostly in the southern islands. Despite a turbulent early history which saw both religious groups fighting constant wars and rebellions, by the time Abanhfleft came and "occupied" the nation in 1921, a general "peace" had settled between the two groups, and today both are content to consider each other as Oontazniks. Despite being a sultanate, the freedom of religion is valued by the nation, although it would be good advice to say that while the Catholics and Christians might be welcoming, even accommodating, to foreigners of strange new religions, the Muslims might not be so welcoming.

BASIC INFORMATION
Name of nation: Sultanate of Oontaz Dert Li Ng
Demonym: Oontaznik
Nickname: Lions of Sand and Sea
Team colors: Green and white
Style modifier: -2.0 (Defensive this time around)
Formation: 4-2-3-1
Head coach: Faris Feraoun (50 y/o, Oontaz Dert Li Ng)

STARTERS
GK: Septimio BARRANQUILLANO 40 y/o, Botafogo de Maranao Image, captain
Maranao is renowned in Oontaz as being one of the best football academies, if not the best, in the country. It also has a reputation of producing good goalkeepers from its ranks. Unfortunately, Septimio is not one of those good keepers. Sure, he's decent, and can pull off a save that could be considered world-class, but for all intents and purposes, if he really was one of the good keepers, he would not be playing in Oontaz anymore, especially not for a mid-table side like Botafogo.

RB: Marcus Oliver "Marco" PORTENCIO 32 y/o, Electric Yugal Image (Abanhfleft)
Marco Portencio is one of the new faces on the Oontaznik national football team following the sacking of Emir Usamah and the elevation of Ador Macaspac from star striker to new team manager. Marco is a quality right back who is already showing flashes of world-class brilliance, kind of like a cheap Oontaznik version of Hector Bellerin. He has pace in buckets, and he is also good for scoring a goal or two per season.

RCB: Halim GUEROUABI 26 y/o, Atletico Bed Deg Image (Copper Cuprum)
Guerouabi's main role is simply to sit in front of the goalkeeper and stop balls from getting through. Long legs and a large body help him achieve this objective easily enough for a defensive-minded team like Atletico Bed Deg and the Sultanate national football team. He can also head balls away in defense or score headers from corner kicks in offense. Also has a history of handballs, so that is one thing an opponent can use to their advantage.

LCB: Garson LAPITAN 33 y/o, Sub Deg Raiders A.F.C. Image (Copper Cuprum)
Garson is a defender whose main assets are speed and a good footballing mind. He can catch up to all but the fastest players in any given league, not that he is often caught out of position. His only downside is that he fancies himself someone who can crack open the opposition's defense with a long ball, a tactic which more often than not gives the ball back to the opposition. Age has decreased his pace, but Lapitan still remains a resolute rock in the middle of the Sultanate's defense.

LB: Martin OPULENCIA 33 y/o, Real Mikkaleth Image (Abanhfleft)
Another new face from Ador Macaspac's new look Oontaznik team. Martin is a resolute left back who doesn't shrink away from making any challenges, even against players normally acknowledged as "untouchable" by other teams' defenses. He is content to remain at the back, defending his goal when needed, but sometimes he might be commanded to come up for an attack, and he doesn't shrink away from scoring a goal or two per season either.

DM: Burhan BOUTEFLIKA 29 y/o, Hapoel Nineveh Image
Marauder best describes Bouteflika's role in the midfield, both for NIneveh and the Sultanate. He roams around the middle of the pitch, watching and waiting for the ball to arrive anywhere near him so he can steal it off of the opposing player or at the very least allow a fellow defender to cut out the chance before it becomes dangerous. But it's easy to counter this by just playing the ball at the part of the midfield where Bouteflika is farthest away. This could open up gaps in the Sultanate's defenses.

CM: Seif DAHER 28 y/o, Gryphons Nubalochi Image
From the middle of the park, Daher can ping a pass to a flea sitting on a blade of grass somewhere inside the opposition's third. Unfortunately he has the turning radius of an oil tanker and the acceleration of a fully loaded freight train. His best use is sitting in the middle of the field, receiving the ball there and moving it on quickly. Any attempt to use him in a defensive capacity will only result in tears, cards, and penalties.

RW: Abram TUMANGGOR 27 y/o, Botafogo de Maranao Image

CAM: Mubarak ZIDANE 23 y/o, Rotor Dnistrosh Image (Pridnestrovia)

LW: WEYVERLEY Lopes da Costa 29 y/o, Tarbayog Aguilas Image
Weyverley was supposed to be one of the Sultanate's biggest footballing stars by now. Everyone's eyes were on him when he started tearing up the Fleftic Unang Liga and Premier League with Antslinngs Islands. Weyverley was too good to be playing in the second tier of Abanhfleft, and CSKA Tiraspol swiftly scooped him up in their bid to return to relevance in Pridnestrovia. Unfortunately, this was where Weyverley's attitude problems started to surface, and after getting into fights with both his teammates and the bouncers of the clubs he frequented in Tiraspol, Weyverley was soon shown the door. He's been trying to recover some of the form that he showed in Antslinngs back home in the Sultanate only to end up bouncing around from club to club.

FW: Arthur SUPRATNO 28 y/o, Malabon SC Image (Abanhfleft) (vice-captain)
Supratno has had a rollercoaster of a season. He scored the goal that won Malabon SC the Globe Cup against Schottia's Port Sebastian, but the season immediately after that he was unable to help the Ravens retain their FPL status. Despite his relegation though, Supratno has remained loyal to Malabon, and with his status as a 20-goal-per-season striker now cemented, it's only a matter of when and not if Malabon will be promoted back to the Fleftic top flight.

RESERVES
GK: Usamah ROBERTS-INGLES 32 y/o, Botafogo de Maranao Image
At least Botafogo's goalkeeper academy produced another good one. Unfortunately for him, he's both too young to be the national team's starting keeper, and he's also the son of a marriage between an Oontaznik and a foreigner, so discrimination is coming into play in here. But not by much, because he's so good and the other keepers are so... crap that Emir Usamah had no choice but to call him up even though both of them know that goalie Usamah won't get to play while Emir Usamah's the manager.

Hampton Island Golden Bears
Rosters For World Cup 86



You may recall some of the drama that occurred within this team behind the scenes, other than the fact that we qualified with a bunch of older guys in World Cup 85. If you don’t remember, then do not feel like you need to go back and read all of our roleplays. World Cup 86, for Hampton Island is going to be Stafford City vs Marquette. Or, the hated (or beloved) CEO (who is better not to give an actual name for) and the still young Hannah Sanders. They absolutely hate each other, but the CEO cannot fire Hannah since the team just qualified, nor can he get rid of all the old guys that want to come back. However, he wants to depart from that. A deal has been made between him and Hannah which will be covered in roleplay.

For roster purposes, the first half will be “Stafford City”. This is a collection of the current best soccer players in Hampton Island, who are of traditional ages, and a squad that Hannah Sanders has absolutely no part of. (aka, the boring roster).

The second half will be “Marquette”. This is the return of all the old guys, who are even two years older now! This squad is managed by Hannah Sanders, and the CEO (Stafford City) has no part of it. They will play their home games in Marquette. In a nutshell, the squad that accumulates the most points will win and the loser will step down from their role and pay the other a large sum of money. Ties with points will be determined with the tiebreakers used by the hosts.



Stafford City Roster:
Manager- William Druckman, 47

Starters:
GK: #31- Alexander Watson, 26
LB: #32- Trevor McGrady, 27

(Higher kit numbers are worn by this team due to not having number overlap with the Marquette roster, and they have “senority”, in more ways than one, for those numbers).

The Football Association of Vilita is based at the Tivali-Ring Stadium (87,000 Seating Capacity) in the capital city of Alikki-Corra, Vilita and many National Team training sessions take place on the grounds of the Tivali-Ring. The Tivali-Ring complex was constructed as part of the Vilitan bid to host the World Cup 14 Cup of Harmony as a replacement to the former National Stadium in Lopinka that was destroyed during a regional conflict. 'The Ring' has since hosted countless international matches including high profile matches such as the World Cup 31 Final and the 40th Series 'B' Champions Cup Final.

Despite being based at the Ring, The Football Association of Vilita regularly schedule matches at arenas throughout Vilita, especially bigger matches as many of the stadiums that host Stellar Division and UICA competition matches have expanded far beyond the 87,000 capacity of the National Stadium at Tivali-Ring, which is used only for the National Team, and, domestically for the Vilitan Cup Final and Tropical Trophy matchups. The Football Association typically releases a stadium schedule when applicable.

Note: The Home match against Krytenia on Matchday 7 will be played at the Lirai Asku Castle in Yeaddin, Vilita. Other venue changes will be announced in the RP thread as they are finalized.


The coaches will select the squad from the National Player pool. Players are listed below, grouped by position and sorted by projection 'Depth Chart' position where the top player listed is most likely to be named the first player selected for that position, and so on. Depth chart positions are determined by performance in pre-cup training sessions, as well as performance and average ratings in the Vilitan League competition and previous appearances for the National Team.

Vilita will often play in a traditionally Vilitan 3-1-4-2 formation with a style modifier of +3.14. Against weaker opposition they may instead play a 3-4-3.

Press Note: The Vilita National Team Official Roster Sheet was overhauled prior World Cup 82 to include both Caps, Goals & Clean Sheets for the Vilitan National Team as well as Caps, Goals & Clean Sheets accrued while playing for the Vilita & Turori unified team as a separate statistical category. For many players, only Caps, Goals and Clean Sheets earned since AOCAF 50 are included amongst the Vilita & Turori statistics. If a player's information is misrepresented or incomplete we are confident the error is only typographical. Please submit any corrections to the Vilitan National Sports Desk.

A product of the Turoki Isle academy system, Cjinder was snapped up by Turorian giants Mliona-Lpaka for a professional contract and made his debut during V-League Season 48. Cjinder established himself both in the Vilitan National Team and the Mliona-Lpaka first team, becoming a critical cog in the team that would lift the UICA Champions Cup 68 title. Cjinder has shown the ability to play both a central defender and as a wing back, preferably on the right hand side where the Turoki-born player frequently gets involved in the attack – notably recorded 8 goals and 10 assists from open play during the previous four seasons with Mliona-Lpaka

Image

Trained briefly at the Obaiobao Academy on Turoki Isle before returning to Tropicorp and joining Tropicorp FC. Scored 3 goals in Tropicorp's Season 54 Tropicorp Cup Championship campaign. Trikala's first season in the Vilitan League wasn't especially impressive but the defender provided solid performances as Tropicorp finished impressively in 4th place in the Declasse table. These performances caught the eye of the scouts at Jungle Strike FC who snapped up the young defender as part of their rebuilding project after two consecutive finishes outside the top 5. Trikala got their first taste of triumph with Strike FC during Season 57 as Vilitan Cup Champions. Scored the winning goal for Vilita & Turori in the AOCAF 56 final against Mriin.

D RLC ( AGE: 22 :: [ NT CAPS: 18 :: NT GOALS: 0 ] :: [ V&T CAPS: 1 :: V&T GOALS: 3 ] )
TROPHIES :: [ : World Cup 82 : ]
Riiyaaw was trained at the Tivali City Academy until the age of 16 when they had the opportunity to sign their first professional contract. Instead of staying local with Declasse side Tivali City, Riiyaaw took the opportunity to move internationally. After attracting the attention of foreign bidders, Riiyaaw eventually signed a deal with Internationstatal high-flyers Cassandra City of Cosumar where they earned Runner-Up medals in both the UICA Champions Cup and Atlantian Oceania Champions League in their first season of competition.

TROPHIES :: [ : World Cup 81 : World Cup 82 : ][ : AOCAF 56 : ]
Not much is known about the defender who was born in Vilita to Starblaydi parents. Coming up through the academy system and being capped for the Vilitan National Team, Ajhabekk eventually returned home to Starblaydia when Iskara Daii put out a call of players. Ajhabekk occasionally answers the call to join up with the Vilitan National Team in Alikki-Corra.

Image
Inteali Koranjo [ - Cazadores Cathair (AUD) - ]
D RLC ( AGE: 19 :: [ NT CAPS: 12 :: NT GOALS: 1 ] :: [ V&T CAPS: 0 :: V&T GOALS: 0 ] )
TROPHIES :: None
Koranjo was a product of the Jlinal Cove Academy before relocating to the Under-21 Squad training ground in Tivali City. The impressive prospect became one of the youngest defenders to start a Vilitan NT matchup when they made their debut against Vartugia during World Cup 83 Qualifying and would score their first career goal for the NT later that cycle in a 5-1 victory over Mattijana. With Jlinal Cove FC mired in the Declasse Division as they had been for much of their existence, and with the club retaining Koranjo’s rights in the Vilitan League, the player decided to seek an international transfer during the 26th Transfer Window. Koranjo would ultimately sign with Cazadores Cathair after being impressed with the teams performance in the 6th Vilitan Cove Invitational tournament which Cazadores shared a training ground with the Vilita & Turori Under-21 Squad.

Born in Makosile, Sekagaya moved to Alikki-Corra to join the Alikki-Corra Academy and ultimately graduated to the Main Squad. After Alikki-Corra were relegated to the Declasse, Sekagaya ultimately made the leap to the Stellar Division joining Lonngeylin Coast during Season 55 and being a part of the Vilitan Cup winning squad. Sekagaya would be an important part of the transformation at Lonngeylin Coast ultmately winning back-to-back Stellar Division titles with the club.

TROPHIES :: [ : World Cup 81 : World Cup 82 : ][ : AOCAF 56 : ] : Stellar Division :
Limu Katarakhna came through the academy system at Colonial Sile and impressed greatly upon making their debut midway through Season 54. After Colonial Sile failed to qualify for UICA competition in Season 56, the young athlete able to step in anywhere on the field made the switch to Eastal Lunar FC. Katarakhna made their international debut during AOCAF 45 for the Eel-Cat Things but did not commit immediately to playing for Vilita or Turori internationally. After the success of the Cocoabo Squad during World Cup 79 however, the highly touted prospect acceped an invitation to be apart of Vilita's World Cup 80 Qualifying playing pool. The decision would prove to be a good one as Katarakhna was part of Vilita’s World Cup 81 and World Cup 82 championship squads including their first career World Cup Finals goal during the World Cup 82 Quarter Final against Apox.

Aquafek was brought up through the youth system in Turoki and has served as a loyal Turoki Tide player for the duration of his career becoming the clubs second all-time appearance leader behind former goalkeeper Hooizo Nuakoi. Aquafek has earned four Stellar Division Titles and 2 Vilitan Cup titles with the Tide. On the heels of the V-League 55 title the midfield duo of Torerun and Aquafek would be the engine that drove the Turoki Tide to the 66th UICA Globe Cup title.

TROPHIES :: [ : World Cup 77 : World Cup 81 : World Cup 82 : ] : Stellar Division : Vilitan Cup : Vilitan Declasse :
Trained at Marine Coast United's Crosaibi Academy, Kiwavyn eventually followed in the footsteps of training partner Jurzen Devmiko in transferring up to the top flight and joined Cednia Beach AFC, helping the Turorian Giants to the Season 51 Vilitan Stellar Division and Vilitan Cup championship double. The duo were finally split up during Season 55 when Vilitan Giants Jungle Strike FC came calling for Kiwavyn's services. With Cednia Beach struggling, Kiwavyn jumped at the opportunity to join one of Vilita's most storied clubs. Kiwavyn would play two seasons at Strike before searching for a more important role in the club, landing a new starting gig at Rammsissil and leading them back to the Stellar Division for Season 57.

TROPHIES :: [ : World Cup 77 : World Cup 81 : World Cup 82 : ]
Trained at Marine Coast United's Crosaibi Academy, Devmiko impressed in his first season and earned a switch to Stellar Division side Colonial Sile. Spent 5 seasons at Colonial Sile before earning a switch to Cednia Beach AFC becoming Colonial Sile's largest transfer. The switch did not pay off for Devmiko, however as while Sile climbed the Stellar Division table, Cednia Beach descended into a relegation fight. After two seasons in Cednia Beach, Devmiko became the most expensive incoming transfer in Inland Peaks history as he joined the newly promoted Declasse Champions for V-League Season 56. However, after one season at the Peaks Devmiko once again transferred, and once again found himself playing on the newly promoted Declasse Champions – this time joining Rammsissil.

Kuhilana was perhaps too young when being called into the squad at Jlinal Cove on an emergency basis to cover squad gaps as they struggled to keep fit during Vilitan League Season 55. Strong performances did catch the eye of Makosile United, however, who snapped up the youngster in order to fill their own gaps left by departing players following their relegation from the Stellar Division.

TROPHIES :: [ : World Cup 81 : World Cup 82 : ][ : AOCAF 56 : ] : Stellar Division :
Born in Vilita to a Turorian and a Starblaydi, Milaaso came through the Eastal Lunar Jr. Academy winning the Tropicorp Youth challenge with the Jr. Astronauts and was adjudged to have the 'DNA of Champions' based on their multi-cultural upbringing. Milaaso had a breakout season during Vilitan League 57 as the 18 year old netted 11 goals in all competitions and was widely regarded as the third best forward in the league behind National Team duo Sipke Tarala and Berali Tzufarei. Miilaaso made their international debut at the end of World Cup 79 qualifying against The Steel Coast, scoring late to net their first international tally on their debut. Was named Galacticos Youth Player of the Season at the age of 18 and was later nominated again as a finalists at the age of 21. Miilaso scored their first ever World Cup Finals goal in World Cup 80 against Banija then was a key part of Vilita’s World Cup 81 Championship winning squad scoring three goals during the World Cup Finals. When Vilita won the World Cup 82 Final against rivals Turori, Miilaso did one better scoring a goal in the World Cup Final. After helping define a new generation of the Vilitan National Team, Milaaso turned their infetious influence to the Vilitan League helping lead Eastal Lunar FC to their first Stellar Division title during the 61st Vilitan League campaign.

Sipke Tarala [ - Sabrefell Athletic (NPH) - ]
F C ( AGE: 34 :: [ NT CAPS: 133 :: NT GOALS: 57 ] :: [ V&T CAPS: 2 :: V&T GOALS: 0 ] )
TROPHIES :: [ : World Cup 77 : World Cup 81 : World Cup 82 : ] : Stellar Division : Vilitan Cup :
A trainee at Makosile, Tarala was smartly snapped up by scouts at Lonngeylin Coast shortly after turning pro. The Striker has led the Stellar Division on multiple occasions and became a top choice striker for the Vilitan National Team including their World Cup 77 Championship side. Tarala leveraged that success and transferred it to the domestic leagues earning the Vilitan Cup title with Lonngeylin Coast during Season 55 then back-to-back Stellar Division Championships while being named Lonngeylin Coast's player of the season. Tarala was a top goalscorer for the Vilitan National Team during their World Cup 81 title winning campaign and capped off a memorable cycle with the Vilitan Stellar Division title followed by a high-profile transfer to UICA Champions Sabrefell Athletic of Nephara in the highest value transfer of the 24th UICA Transfer Window.

Enzoril Alabonni [ - Marine Coast United - ]
D/F C ( AGE: 24 :: [ NT CAPS: 43 :: NT GOALS: 20 ] :: [ V&T CAPS: 37 :: V&T GOALS: 13 ] )
TROPHIES :: [ : World Cup 81 : World Cup 82 : ][ : AOCAF 56 : ]
A young prospect originally from Mavaloiao, Enzoril Alabonni moved with their family to the main Island to be trained by Marine Coast United at the Crosaibi Academy. The Mavaloier has height well above the others in their age group and as such often switches between a center-back role and a role as an aerial target in attack.

Tenziki Kulakao [ - Yeaddin Owls - ]
F C ( AGE: 31 :: [ NT CAPS: 77 :: NT GOALS: 22 ] :: [ V&T CAPS: 5 :: V&T GOALS: 4 ] )
TROPHIES :: [ : World Cup 77 : World Cup 81 : World Cup 82 : ]
Kulakao was promoted from Owls Castle Academy as a symbol of the future of footsport in Yeaddin, quickly becoming a fan favorite at the Lirai Asku Castle and being named Yeaddin Owls Player of the Season during V-League Season 50 and repeating the feat multiple times from then. Kulukao has been a solid 8-10 goal per season striker in all competitions for the Owls throughout their career but really shone during the Owls memorable Vilitan Cup run during Season 57 leading the competition with 7 goals although the Owls fell just short of the ultimate prize, losing to Jungle Strike FC on penalty kicks in the Vilitan Cup final.

Image
Fishtii Blikala [ - Marine Coast United - ]
F C ( AGE: 32 :: [ NT CAPS: 85 :: NT GOALS: 27 ] :: [ V&T CAPS: 6 :: V&T GOALS: 4 ] )
TROPHIES :: [ : World Cup 77 : World Cup 81 : World Cup 82 : ]
After being trained and promoted to the Main Squad at Marine Coast United, Blikala put in 4 seasons and netted 36 goals before the allure of the Stellar Division called, switching to Makosile United during Season 53 and scoring 11 goals in their debut season. Blikala scored 31 goals in three seasons with the Makos but when the former champions were relegated after Season 55, Blikala left the club and re-joined Marine Coast United. Blikala had a breakout campaign with the Vilitan National Team during World Cup 80 Qualifying, scoring 6 goals in 9 matches to lead all Vilitan players. Was a member of World Cup 81 and World Cup 82 winning sides scoring once in both Finals campaigns. Blikala scored their first career World Cup Finals hattrack on Matchday 3 of the World Cup 83 Group stage against The Macabees with all three goals coming less than 10 minutes apart late in the match.

Clarana Refiami [ - Spartangrad (EUR) - ]
F C ( AGE: 18 :: [ NT CAPS: 4 :: NT GOALS: 1 ] :: [ V&T CAPS: 7 :: V&T GOALS: 1 ] )
TROPHIES :: None
Made their internationstatal debut appearing in four matches during the 7th Cup of Champions competition for Vilita. Scored first career International Goal during against Kita-Hinode in 7th Cup of Champions Semi-Finals. Attracted interest from Eura league teams during AOCAF tournament and made transfer to Euran side Spartangrad prior to the 85th World Cup Cycle

Image
Linvoi Warazil [ - Raynor City United (VAL) - ]
F C ( AGE: 32 :: [ NT CAPS: 61 :: NT GOALS: 9 ] :: [ V&T CAPS: 4 :: V&T GOALS: 3 ] )
TROPHIES :: [ : World Cup 77 : World Cup 81 : World Cup 82 : ] : Stellar Division : Vilitan Cup :
Warazil was spotted playing at the age of 16 for local side Alona Sissil after having averaged over a goal per game for the team. Was snapped up by Strike FC and quickly became attacking partner to Meldi'ita Mungwaii, eventually being named Vilitan Player of the Season. As Strike's fortunes faded, however, so did Warazil's and while they did lift the Season 57 Vilitan Cup with the club, a disappointing Season 58 campaign left Warazil wanting more and submitting a transfer request to the Lonngeylin based club. The move would eventually see Warazil cross Atlantian Oceania to Valanora to play for one of the regions most decorated sides, Raynor City United.

The Grim Reapers Crest, designed by Kirola of Audioslavia. It is used internationally by all Quebecois national teams with the nickname Grim Reapers.

Royal Kingdom of Quebec National Football Team - World Cup 86 Qualifiers


There once was a time when the Grim Reapers were one of the best national teams in the World. Yes, I'm talking about that time when they had a remarkable semifinals run that fell short a couple of times, and Grim Reapers eventually finished fourth at home. Still, that was like 16 years ago, and almost all the players from that team have retired or are retiring in the very next or two. Heck, some of them are fairly seasoned managers at this point and their kids are now coming into our attention. God, how time passes by so quickly....!

Anyways, building the team bottom-up would mean another kind of fun. The Grim Reapers, while not unfamiliar to winning, have an entirely different squad than their predecessors, that they are going to primarily focus on building from international experience that they sorely need, especially after a decade and half of political squabble between Royal Sporting Council (responsible for the domestic side of the sports, so in this case Q-League), and Imperial Sporting Council (same, but on the international side of the fence and of course, all national team sides). So really, expectations are to be controlled and calmed down, because everybody knows this isn't the same team.

But hey, the excitement's still around and abound, as you can only expect Team Chemistry as a minimum while also learning about the Growing Pains as a maximum. While heir first cycle (WC85-CoH77) didn't net them a qualifying spot, it did result in a half a dozen critical upsets that seemed to show the potential this Team Quebec holds, and likely will carry into the subsequent years to come. So, while making the World Cup seems rather a long-term goal at this point, the Grim Reapers remain hopeful that they will reach the World Cup at some point, and will work their arse off of it.

Home and Away Kits, brought to you by Infinite of Donnacona

Traditionally, Royal Kingdom of Quebec has picked the finest of the finest kit makers all across the Multiverse. After many decades of successful partnership with various Quebecois kitmakers, it decided to take a step forward when the Grim Reapers, just coming off their first-ever World Cup qualification the year before, signed a major contract with Audioslavian Kitmaker Kirola ahead of World Cup 70.

This was followed by the RQFA joining forces with the Red Blackilandian kitmaker Infinite, who brought their expertise with designing creative gears to new heights with the Grim Reapers ahead of World Cup 75. During their time with the Grim Reapers, while shorter on a six year run with Meski, compared to Kirola's decade long partnership with the Quebecois NT, achieved new heights by making its only semifinals appearance on the very last year of its contract.

Now, with the Quebecois return to international footballing scene, the time has come for a new kitmaker for the Grim Reapers to sign with. This time, after much deliberation, the Donnaconan kitmaker Infinite was chosen over various Quebecois and foreign kitmakers to procure a long-term, multi-cycle contract with the Grim Reapers. As the Quebecois looks to return to the international footballing prominence they once held, the RQFA looks forward to its (hopefully) longtime partnership to come with Infinite.




PREDICTED FIRST XI : 4-2-3-1

NATIONAL TEAM COACHING STAFF

Manager: Sir. Lionel Mah, 70
Assistant Manager: Federico Rassmussen, 39, Valladares
Goalkeeping Coach: Guillaume Shin, 35
Defensive Coach: Robert McLelland, 45
Midfields Coach: Mark Hailey, 37, Xanneria
Offensive Coach : Hwang Dong-Wook, 50


Sir. Lionel Mah is a man of promises.

When the former CSKA Quebec manager came to Quebec City after the club's revival of fortunes (and their first Q-League title in 33 years!), he promised to the Schottians that their time will come sooner than later.

That promise eventually became true, as Mah achieved unprecedented height of glory for the Schottian side that eventually capped it off with sweet, sweet, WC79 title. Since then he managed CSKA Quebec for a five season run that saw him win 2 titles (landing his name as the 'Only Curse-breaker in the city the past fifty-four years since 1990), and then a couple of solid seasons with Willox Street Pirates, a Port Christopheran giant who then joined the Schottian Premiership. After the club's financial difficulties caused him to part ways with the club, he was quickly given an offer to return to the national team by RQFA. The long-knighted Mah, who finally got the chance to manage his homeland side, delivered what he was expected to deliver, as the Grim Reapers finished third in qualifying groups and made it to the quarterfinals in what was a relatively successful World Cup 85 Qualifying campaign. With this cycle being the second of his four year contract (world cups run once every two IC years in Quebec), with an additional clause to extend it to the third cycle, Sir. Lionel's looking to make some statement before really heading off to the retirement land.

A very experienced manager with highly fiexible style of management, Mah is expected to make adjustments as necessary. Having been part of two consecutive sides in CSKA Quebec and Schottian national team definitely helped with that approach for the level-headed man, and he's always prepared for some kind of needed adjustment to be made. He'll try something- no matter what- even when this may be unsuccessful. Still, he's an offensively-driven man by hart, so don't expect them to go completely on defence and lock the entire turf. For the formation, the Grim Reapers are expected to use the 4-2-3-1 formation that he used with great success back in Schottia, but is open to use 4-3-3, 3-5-2, 3-4-3 or whatever that he feels needs to happen.

One thing to take a particular note with the manager, especially for those who remember the Quebecois national team's heydays, is that he is just as much a disciplinarian, if not even more, than his predecessors. There once was a time when he was lot more flexible with crazy antics, but after a solid decade in Schottia, where she had to deal with CORINNE MARTEL-BURNS and Gary Corsie, he's hardened up a bit. So while he'll tolerate most players' off-pitch antics as a lifestyle-related choice, he's most likely not going to handle bullshit when on pitch for his players, and would gladly kick a garbage fan to show his frustration with a player's performance or unwillingness to listen. Of course, this didn't prevent him from selecting Marco Hertel, a world-class degenerate who's already a father to five kids out of wedlock, or Michel Fillion, the world-class son of a bitch who married his idol's ex-wife that eventually resulted in the Grim Reaper's retirement.




GOALKEEPERS (4)

Neck-to-Neck (2)
#1, Okropir Cadwaladr-Andjaparidze, 25, Turoki Tide (Vilita)
#31, Nelson Okello, 27, Hoima Warriors (Banija)

Backups (2)
#37, Padraig McGibbon, 20, Port Sebastian (Schottia)
#21, Sandra Middleton, 19, Zenit Attawapiskat


If the keyword on the town last cycle were 'goalkeeper controversy', no we have something bigger mess to figure out. Fortunately, this is for a good reason- the Grim Reapers, traditionally known for its stable of elite goalkeepers who more often than not have to cover for defensive lapses, have a four-person pool where all four could eventually end up a number one starter for the Grim Reapers.

Unfortunately, none of them have taken a clear lead on the race, even as the goalkeeper depth have proven to be ‘fucking great’. So Sir. Lionel Mah, like it or not, will have to hope that either Cadwaladr-Andjaparidze or Okello will really step up and no longer be a disappointment to the team that expects the next Ondrej Cech or Adrian Middleton to step up.

Nelson Okello, the prolific CSKA Quebec and Hoima Warriors goalkeeper, have continued to maintain very good form in BSL. Okello is a great shot stopper whose decisionmaking skills more than not cover for his reflexes. He is a good goalie with good mindset and, having earned the favour of the manager, is expected to start at least 6 of the qualification games this cycle.

While his presence is commanding enough, the new ‘starter’ Okropir Cadwaladr-Andjaparidze is likelier a player fans are more likely to go ‘ooh’ and ‘aah’ over. The Quebecois sweeper, who’s now had a couple of solid seasons on belt with Turoki Tide, is nicely coming into form as the stylistic successor to Ondrej Cech on the Quebecois national team. With his excellent distribution skills and remarkable zone coverage on display last qualifiers, most notably so with a remarkable 10-save performance against Poafmersia, he is expected to at least play 8 games this qualifiers.

Then, the duo of young goalkeepers compete for the spot as Sandra Middleton and Padraig McGibbon compete for the third goalkeeper spot for the Cup of Harmony team. One of them is a 19-year old named Sandra Middleton. The 17-year old dual citizen, who grew up mostly in her hometown of Stahlburg (Nephara) where her father was a club hero, may be Zenit Attawapiskat’s only hope out there. While not the most statistically dominant player out there, her remarkable reflexes and extremely consistent form have convinced many that she’s going to have a big career in a big club down the road. So, while she may not be getting much playing time at this point in time, that's not a bad thing.

In the meanwhile, Padraig McGibbon’s another creature to look out for. The youngster who got scouted out of high school championships in football-crazy Newfoundland four years ago, McGibbon has played well on two year-long loans and a backup stint with Port Sebastian, arguably the Quebecois people’s favourite Schottian club. He, unlike Middleton, has had a much more comfortable journey as a goalkeeper and is expected to be the next starting goalkeeper for the Handon side, something should keep him well in contention.

#22 CB Rosie Ascough, 22, Umnama'kik-Inverness 1877


Well...yes. This is probably the weak spot on the team, not because it's a bad group of players, but also because the way that team is coached. The Grim Reapers, over the course of Quebecois football history, have been renowned for their offensively-driven style of 'Quebecois Takil', with the emphasis on flashiness and violence. Even then, the Quebecois always had elite defenders, as we've seen with the likes of Lorne Dunford (Blau-Weiss Pallstadt, Buyan; and Turoki Tide, Vilita), Jannick Kontiola (OAS Royal FC, Cosumar), Devane Miller (Chatswood, Nephara), and of course, Karl Varsteeg (Avenida Principal, Farfadillis), and this team does have some. It's just that they will likely require lot more time to tune it together and see whoever would be the best possible shipmate to Lucien Raeff. They failed to find the right partner last time, but hey, we just gotta try to see if the lightning will strike the bottle twice!

While the level of intensity wasn’t as great as last cycle when the old and the new clashed, Hazel Hanson-Conavacio and Bastian Borges Jr are looking to cease their day on the left back position. Hazel Hanson-Conavacio, on one hand, is the fullback of the future; tall, jacked and unbelievably fast, Hanson-Conavacio immediately stepped onto the field when she played a significant, Q-League Best-XI performance, to anchor their transition game as a fullback en route to their Q-League title. Bastian Borges Jr, in the meanwhile, have performed admirably with Saint-Urbain before a recent move to Canalave Rangers in Valladares. A technically proficient centre back who doubles up as a left back, he is a very consistent player whose ceilings may not be as high, but contributions still very valuable.

On the right back, the competition seems to have settled nicely. After a couple of seasons with CSKA Quebec, Donovan Kim-Lumanyika has stepped nicely as the clear-cut starter for the Grim Reapers’ squad that clearly benefitted from his presence. He is a gritty, rough rightback who usually gets what he is expected to do, though at the cost of number of cards he’s been receiving in both domestic and international matches. Sean Piugattuk, his backup, is also another defensive option who rarely commits to a mistake, but his lack of vision and slower speed is something that should limit his use.

Now is the position of key strength and concern at the same time. Lucien Raeff, to be frank, is the best player on the Quebecois national team, and it's not even close. While the Rozelle centre back may only be very good but not outstanding in terms of pace, stamina or even man-to-man defence, but his exceptional on-turf IQ, areas of defensive coverage, accurate long-range passes and leadership eclipse his deficiencies. Having named as the latest Grim Reapers’ captain, and with a major transfer move to Rozelle, he's expected to be that lone defensive anchor for the team that desperately needs one.

Unfortunately, the issue is that Raeff is that he's best suited for a three-back system, and in team like Quebec where three-back system usually equals suicide, that becomes very problematic. So much of the time spent by the coaching staff will be on finding adequate partner for Raeff. Steel-like Joseph McLean (who performed underwhelmingly back in WCQ85), youngster Rosie Ascough, and the defensively stout Fabrice Manitopeyes are all going to be tested to see if they can coexist with the mercurial centreback and not screw up the team’s defensive makeup.




MIDFIELDERS (8)

Key Starters (3)

#41 CM Sinead MacDougall, 25, Umnama'kik-Inverness 1877

Borderline (2)

#19 AM/LW/CM Frank Lundrigan, 21, TSV Marzig (Siovanija and Teusland)


For a country where there would be a couple of solid but never dominant players in the position (barring the earth-defying Frederic Beauchemin), this is a solid group of midfielders we have in Quebec. The level of depth is still far from perfect, but at least this time, there are lot more options to utilise at ease, which may or may not have changed stylistic changes from 4-2-4 that were used in the 60s and the 70s.

Among them all, Marco Hertel is the most special of them all. The Jeruselemite-Quebecois, who is best known as the eldest of five children between Xavier Hertel, the legendary Quebecois footballer, and Princess Anna of Jeruselem, is as talented as his father was and has exactly done so with Servette FC of Valladares. He is an offensive–minded midfielder who plays both central and attacking midfielder position at will. As the team's main playmaker, due to his unique vision and remarkable passing range, he is going to see a lot of ball touches and is expected to stay as the alpha and omega to the offence....as long as he lets his personal life sorted out.

Of course, Hertel's rise coincided with a huge hole left on the other pillar of the midfields, as Anton Vujadinovic has announced retirement from the Quebecois national team due to a major dispute between Michel Fillion and him. In their place arrived Erin Kang and Sinead MacDougall, two stout midfielders who only deserve praise on their own right. Erin Kang, the second starting midfielder of the team, has played well with Rülândéá Kôstä of Farfadillis. Her strengths derive from her speed, off-the-ball movement, and work rate that has really served her nicely as the best technical support Hertel could get. At the same time, UI1877 captain Sinead MacDougall is another all-arounder, a highly regarded passer who's been viewed by many as the most underrated player in Quebecois football.

Finally, we should talk about the next five players on the team.

Seamus McKellar, like Kang and Kim, is a helluva lucky guy. An underheralded prospect with Haligonian, he quietly rose to starting position as former manager Norman Hacker's last protege and stepped up to even higher reaches when Leonardo Conavacio, the Grim Reapers legend, gave him full reins to the team. Of course, that worked out successfully as he played a major role for the Haligonian side that has won a Coupe du Roi and a Q-League title the past two seasons. This continuous renewal of confidence got Sir. Lionel, who liked this mercurial, hardworking midfielder with excellent technique, to place him as the crucial fourth midfielder on the team. With that in mind, he's expected to be a crucial joker card for the Grim Reapers.

Evander Bush-Sprenger is another promising midfielder who was the only consistent factor in the northeastern powerhouse, Heart of Saguenay, the previous two seasons. While often called out for missed defensive responsibilities, the son of a Donnaconan and a Valladar immigrant in Chicoutimi is still a top-class card for the Quebecois and is expected to receive some playing time as a substitute.

To back up the five, Erin Namur-Jaurès, Kim Byeong-Soo and Frank Lundrigan are expected to play at various points during the qualifiers. Namur-Jaurès, whwho is expected to back up for Marco Hertel in case he receives a red card or is not in condition to play, is a technically proficient CAM whose precision and finesse should cover the void with little difficulty. The latest signing by Freeport giants Crystopolis City, she is expected to play a major role for an increasingly-aging squad in southern AO. Kim Byeong-Soo is a well-rounded CM who plays conservatively for a young man his age, while Frank Lundrigan is the final addition on the list. The TSV Marzig signing is a winger who doubles as a midfielder in this case- he serves the purpose of his selection though, with his sharp crosses and solid execution of his on-turf tasks and whatnot.

Everybody and their mother knows that the Quebecois national team is always filled with remarkable corps of forwards, even on their cycles, and the same rule applies even to this rendition of Grim Reapers. While there is no clear favourite nor a successor to any of the Quebecois Quintet of Leonardo Conavacio (Alianza FC, San Jose Guayabal), Zachary Fortin (Marinos Metropolis, Valladares), Angelo Gelinas (Avenida Principal, Farfadillis), Xavier Hertel (CD FAS, San Jose Guayabal), Hazel van Robben (CD FAS, San Jose Guayabal; and 1830 Cathair, Audioslavia), the current group of Quebecois forwards is still an excellent one that has the right mindset and nosedive for the goal.

Michel Fillion is the team's number one option right now. He is an ultimate poacher, physically thicc striker with powerful shot and good technique complementing a 197cm, 89kg figure that seems to have only gotten stronger during his season with Laketown Rangers. While his stubbornness, love for the colour red, and of course inability to keep his third leg inside his pants have some far prevented him from becoming a complete forward, he still is the likeliest goalscoring option for Quebec and is expected to start a ton of games.

To the left wing is Roderick Yi, the most all-arounded stud in the Quebecois forward corps right now. Clean, trustworthy and well-loved, Yi is an all-arounder whose clean, precise moves amaze many in deking past the oppposition defence. While notorious for his club-going antics, he is still a very hardworking player whose simple self wants to get better and hopes that he won't disappoint his fans and the team.

Then there's Kate Huitema-Omeasoo, who plays on the opposite wing. She may be the most promising prospect that has come out of Quebec the past twenty-five years works her way around the national team. The Halifax native, who had a breakout rookie campaign with 1877UI as the golden boot winner, was signed to Jinja City FC where everybody's excited to see what she's made of. Stylistically, KHO reminds many of Zachary Fortin, the greatest Quebecois footballer in history, and Angelo Gelinas, Avenida Principal and Grim Reapers legend - a flashy, explosive centre forward with excellent technique that overcomes her limited height of 171cm. At her best as striker, but very good on right wing too. Adjustment to left wing is possible, but may require minor adjustments. Most importantly, however, Kate Huitema-Omeasoo has all the confidence, competitiveness and consistency in the world to shine. Her off-turf mentality, which many has described as 'anti-Hertel' in essence, is something to notice as well, and she is likely considered as the future Grim Reapers' captain.

To back up the trio are strong corp of forwards out there. On the left wing stands Pablo Mancosu, a clinical winger who have drawn many eyes in Pradera. He is a defensive stalwart whom you don't expect to score a ton, but he will land crisp crosses and will contribute with more assists than you'd think. To back up KHO is Michael Kasaboski-Wilcox, who just signed with Herzegovina City Phoenix after having an excellent season with Zenit Attawapiskat in a dreadful season where he was one of the team's two bright spotlights. Mohamed Khedira, Kim Seung-Yoon and Margarita Tjessem are trio of highly capable forwards whom are all looking to land critical footprints while abroad, while Wilton Ramos is an exciting winger with strong potential and stronger habits to add as well.

Brief National Team History
The Kadongo Kamu have played in exactly 365 games, as of the start of World Cup 86 Qualifying. This will be our 11th World Cup Qualifying campaign, having previously participated in 10(WCQ73, WCQ74, WCQ75, WCQ76, WCQ77, WCQ79, WCQ80, WCQ82, WCQ84, WCQ85) as we look to compete in the World Cup Finals for the seventh consecutive time(WC80, WC81, WC82, WC83, WC84, WC85). We have also participated in Baptism of Fire 60, and been a participant in three different Cup of Harmonies(CoH 66, CoH 67, and CoH 71). In three Cup of Harmonies, Banija has never once moved past the group stage in the competition, and in their lone Baptism of Fire, they earned a lone point. In World Cup 80, Banija was eliminated in the group stages, though in World Cup 81, Banija won Group A and went to the Round of 16 before falling in extra time, on home soil, to Turori by a score of 1-1(2-1 AET). in World Cup 82, Banija won its opening game 3-1 before losing its next two games, its last one in heartbreaking fashion to Pasarga to be eliminated in the group stages. In World Cup 83, Banija stunned the world by beating then two-time defending world champions Vilita in the quarterfinals en route to a bronze medal. In World Cup 84, they were eliminated in the quarterfinals. In World Cup 85, we defeated the world #1 ranked Vilita squad, en route to our second bronze medal in three Finals appearances and we enter World Cup 86 Qualifying with our first ever appearance at the very top of the KPB rankings, as the #1 ranked side in the multiverse.

After not competing at all during the World Cup 78 Cycle due to the RBSA's bankruptcy, they re-entered the world of international football in World Cup 79 cycle. A shocking World Cup 79 Qualification campaign saw them on the brink of qualifying, but the team simply ran out of gas and lost 4 of their final 5 matches to not make it to Ceni/Drawkland. Since then, the U21 team got 3rd place at the 42nd Di Bradini Cup, and the national team advanced to the quarterfinals of AOCAF LV, AOCAF LVI, and AOCAF LVII, establishing themselves as a strong regional side, falling to the eventual champs in the latter two tournaments. They stunningly qualified for World Cup 80, after starting poorly by losing 5 of their first 9, to going unbeaten in the second half of qualifying, where they won 7 of those games. In the World Cup 80 Qualification playoffs, a 3-0 first leg victory in Montreal, Royal Kingdom of Quebec, powered the team through to their first ever appearance in the World Cup Finals, advancing to sport's pre-eminent competition 5-3 on aggregate over Mercedini. While a pair of one goal losses saw them eliminated after two games, they earned their first ever victory at the World Cup Finals in a 2-0 win over New Gazi in their final group stage game. As they hosted World Cup 81, they went directly to the tournament, and went to their first ever knockout stages, winning Group A before falling, 1-1(2-1 AET) to Turori in the Round of 16. They cruised to qualification in World Cup 82, maintaining a top two spot in their World Cup Qualification group behind Brenecia for the entirety of the World Cup 82 Qualification campaign, getting to the tournament with relative ease before bowing out in the group stages.

The World Cup 83 cycle was their strongest yet. Starting with AOCAF LVIII on home soil, co-hosted with the Commonwealth of Baker Park, the Kadongo Kamu won 6 consecutive matches to open the tournament, taking their winning streak all the way to the final. Unfortunately, they were felled, 4-2, at home to their archrivals, the Equestrian States. Co-hosting World Cup 83 as well, the Banijans made a miraclous run at the World Cup, upending 5th ranked South Covelllo on penalties, and defeating the then two-time defending world champions Vilita in the quarterfinals, before falling, 3-2, at the national stadium to Starblaydia. They added to the trophy case, however, earning a bronze medal after defeating Cassadaigua in the 3rd place playoff game.

The World Cup 84 cycle, the first with real title expectations for the Banijans, was a disappointment in the regionals, as we fell 1-0 to Ko-oren in the AOCAF Round of 16, although we advanced to the quarterfinals of World Cup 84 before dropping to Eura in extra time. The World Cup 85 cycle seems to be a promise of hope for the Banijans. Although AOCAF LX was a rough tournament for the Banijans, it was surrounded by two excellent tournament performances for the Banijans. We won the U21 World Cup(DBC 47), and are just coming off earning our first ever senior-level trophy, by winning the 8th Eagle's Cup to be admitted as a full, permanent member of the Eagle's Club right before the beginning of World Cup Qualifying. Following that, the Banijans dominated World Cup 85 Qualifying, going wire-to-wire as the first place team in their World Cup Qualifying group, as well as earning more points in World Cup Qualifying(67) than any other team did throughout the entire campaign. Those strong performances both in the Eagle's Cup and World Cup Qualifying have caused fans to put an up and down AOCAF behind them, and heighten the standard for World Cup 85. While they escaped the group stages with four points, strong wins over Vilita and Zwangzug in the knockouts put them on course for a medal, as they eventually beat allies Baker Park in the bronze medal match, after falling 3-2 to the eventual champions Free Republics in the semifinal.

After a return to the AOCAF LXI Quarterfinals, their first quarterfinal appearance in the last 3 editions of the regional championships, they fell to Chromatika on penalties. They hope to qualify with ease and make a deep run at World Cup 86.

List of National Team managers
1. Kizza Kabila(Banija). Manager for Baptism of Fire 60 and the World Cup 73 Qualification Campaign. Overall record of 0-14-1(W-L-D).

Kizza Kabila is the only Banijan to have ever managed the national team. Hired for Banija's first foray onto the international scene in this sport, his reign was universally derided as a disaster. Managing 15 games, he drew his first game in the Baptism of Fire, and not only lost the next two, he then lost ever single match in the 12 game World Cup Qualification campaign for World Cup 73, with the side only scoring 5 goals across the entire campaign. Unceremoniously fired after becoming one of few managers to go through an entire World Cup Qualification campaign without earning a single point, he, alongside the entire board of the RBSA, resigned after the last game. He was disgraced in the sport after the campaign, and, to this point, has never returned to top-level soccer.

2.Jan Cassallerus(San Llera): Hired before the start of the World Cup 74 Qualification Campaign, managed through the World Cup 77 Qualification Campaign. Overall Record of 27-32-16(W-L-D).

Banija put its eyes abroad, searching for a foreign manager before the World Cup 74 Qualification campaign, and found Jan Cassallerus. He is Banija's longest ever serving manager, being at the helm for four entire World Cup cycles, and being at the helm for 75 total games, a kind of longevity unheard of in the modern game, especially managing the national team. He started winning a game at the Coupe D'Esquarium, in what was known as the group of death. He was largely celebrated for bringing the team into relevancy. The expectations were through the floor, following Kizza Kabila, but he brought the team to Cup of Harmony 66 and Cup of Harmony 67, as well as advancing in Olympic Qualifying and getting third place at the United Valhaven Regional Football Championships. He was forced into retirement after the World Cup 77 Qualification campaign, when the RBSA declared bankruptcy, and could not participate in the World Cup 78 Qualification Campaign due to their inability to compensate players and staff.

3. Randolf Cherry(Drawkland): Hired before the start of the World Cup 79 Qualification Campaign. Overall Record of 20-24-2(W-L-D)

Randolf Cherry, after the RBSA got its act together, was hired- controversially- as the manager of the national team. Not that his own hire was controversial, it was applauded across the sports spectrum here at home. He was given a 3 cycle contract, and everyone knew what the goal was- to make the World Cup Finals at least once over the course of the contract. They understood that it would take time to climb the rankings, and they were willing to give him the leash. However, he came in a very awkward situation. Adama Sowe, the Chairman of the RBSA, allegedly first offered the job to Sarah Owens, out of the Equestrian States. Of course, it is illegal in Banija for women to coach men's professional teams, and that caused controversy. And yet, here he was- the manager of the national team.

His own home country of Drawkland is, of course, very progressive in that area, where the sport is dominated by the ladies. Regardless, he had an excellent start to his reign as a manger, and was initially extremely popular. He won his first game, in a special Eagles Club match, against Aggrey-Fynn Land. He lost his first few qualifiers, but he went on a dear through the middle of qualifying, which included a 7 game winning streak on home soil. Big wins against then 4th ranked Chromatika at home and then 32nd ranked Eshan, put them in the conversation of World Cup Qualification, though they were simply not strong enough.

The Cup of Harmony was considered a disaster, finishing in dead last in their group. The competition maybe simply isn't for the Banijans, eh? But they were strong throughout the offseason, making a surprising quarterfinal run in AOCAF LV and bringing high hopes to the squad going into World Cup 80 Qualification. Hopes were through the roof for the national team, maybe even bordering unrealistic. They struggled, and the campaign got worse as the pressure built, as the squad lost their final four qualifiers of the first half of qualifying. With the campaign seemingly in free-fall, he was fired, as the RBSA said they wanted time to conduct "an open, thorough, search."

4. Marcus Waters(Equestrian States): Hired after the 1st half of World Cup 80 Qualifying, present manager of the national team. Overall record of 148-54-27(W-L-D). All-time winning percentage of 64.63%. All-time points percentage of 68.56%.

Marcus Waters was the national team's assistant manager with Randolf Cherry above him, and the manager of the youth national teams. He first gained notoreity in Banija after successfully leading the U21 team to a 3rd place finish at the 42nd Di Bradini Cup. With his abilities clear, it made sense to move onto him as the interim manager as they searched for a permanent manager ahead of the second half of World Cup Qualifying. However, he was able to complete a stunning turnaround of this team. His first game in charge, he changed nearly the entire backline, and had a massive upset, away to Qasden, by a score of 3-2. A 3-0 victory over Razenthuria in the other mid-qualifying friendly got high hopes for him.

Marcus Waters went out with an intent to keep his team focused, despite everything going on at home. He has proven adept at navigating the political minefield that is this job, especially with his own country of origin essentially at war with Banija. He didn't lose a single game in the second half of qualifying, winning 7 games to get to the playoffs, including when the team was forced to play home games in Montreal due to ongoing violence within Banija. He was widely applauded for getting the team ready to play in Montreal, and winning 1-0 against Turori, the group's top seeded squad, and a 3-0 win in Montreal in the Qualification playoffs. While the RBSA interviewed four other candidates, his successful push through the World Cup Qualification playoffs and into Banija's first-ever World Cup Finals essentially clinched the job for him, as he put pen to paper to take the interim tag off of his title ahead of the 80th World Cup Finals.

Since then, of course, he has done a lot to garner the confidence of the higher-ups, and of the fans. Falling to the eventual champions in the quarterfinals of both AOCAF LVI and AOCAF LVII was widely seen as a positive. As well as, of course, a surprising Fourth Place finish in the Cup of Champions Six, highlighted by a surprising point earned in their matchup against Nephara, while also pushing through to the Round of 16 of World Cup 81, pleasing the home fans. A different sort of pressure faces him this campaign, however.

For the first time in his reign, you could say that Banija had a disappointing tournament, failing to advance in World Cup 82 beyond the group stages. It might be harsh to say that- on paper, advancing from a group with both Pasarga and Farfadillis is a tall order if your team is not Pasarga or Farfadillis. They responded well, however, winning six consecutive games at AOCAF LVIII, and knocking off major nations including Cosumar and Mriin at the tournament, before being felled in the final, in their own capitol of Busukuma, to Equestria. Following up with a World Cup on home soil, they continued that momentum forward from AOCAF LVIII, as the Banijans took on the role of giantslayers on home soil. They beat the 5th ranked South Covello side, and the then two-time defending world champions Vilita, before eventually falling to Starblaydia in the semifinals, though they still earned a bronze medal. Although momentum was blunted after a tough 1-0 defeat to Ko-oren that secured an early exit from AOCAF LIX, they followed that up with their second straight appearance in the World Cup Quarterfinals, where they fell to Eura in extra time.

The World Cup 85 cycle was considered largely a successful one. While the AOCAF was a disappointment, rebounding from that with an Eagle's Cup trophy, and then following that up with a record Qualifying campaign, alongside a bronze medal from the World Cup and the KPB #1 overall ranking, means ever higher expectations for the Equestrian.


1. The Equestrian States. All time Banijan record against opponent- 0-6-1(W-L-T).

The Equestrian States are easily Banija's biggest rival, and by a country mile. It has all the makings of a good international sporting rivalry- plenty of matches played, history of competitive matches, geopolitical rivalry, player familiarity, and, of course, geographical proximity- all those boxes are checked. They've played each other 5 times, and Banija has come out on the losing end each and every time, most recently a 4-0 clobbering at the hands of the Equestrian States during Banija's final friendly before this qualification tournament began.

Three times have they played in competitive competition, and three times Banija has fallen. The Equestrian States eliminated Banija from Cup of Harmony 71 in group play, while also defeating the Banijans in both the opening match of World Cup 80, and the final group stage match of AOCAF LVI, though the Banijans still advanced to the quarterfinals of that tournament. The familiarity of players between each other is strong. Banija's present and most successfull all-time manager, Marcus Waters, is Equestrian. A number of players in each country play in leagues in the other. Famous Equestrian NT players like Aaron Aiza, Rosie Tyler, and Josef Lawrenz, ply their trade in the Banijan Soccer League, with Aiza particularly growing to superstar status while winning league titles at Herzegovina City FC.

Banija's first ever major final in this sport, at the senior level, was against none other than Equestria at the national stadium, with the winner to be crowned champions of AOCAF LVIII Final. In front of a decidedly pro-Banijan crowd, it was the Equestrians who dashed Banijan dreams of glory on their home turf as they picked up their first ever major international silverware, with a 4-2 victory. That victory has made the Banijans just that much hungrier to defeat their bitter rivals, and though the history is lopsided in favor of Equestria, that has just fueled the fire on this side of the matchup. The two sides co-hosted World Cup 83 together, and almost had a rematch of their AOCAF LVIII Final in the World Cup Final, though Banija could not fulfill its end of the bargain as they fell to a stronger Starblaydia side in the semifinals. Equestria, of course went on to win the World Cup, and the next AOCAF to boot, establish a fully fledged dynasty. The Banijans, in pre WOrld Cup 84 Qualification friendlies, got their first ever result against the Equestrians, a 0-0 draw in Everfree.

1. CAM Namakula Kawesa

Namakula Kawesa is one of the most interesting players to follow on this team. She is the first woman to ever put on the green and white for the senior national side, the first beneficiary of the repeal of the gender segregation law within the country. Implementation has been slow, as there are only a handful of female players in the BSL right now, but the rise in change of culture is always slow. Still, she has smashed that glass ceiling on her own, and Kawesa is looking to ensure that she is well respected on the national and international stage.

With her platform comes great expectation, and with great expectation comes great pressure. So far, she has been able to handle it. She scored crucial goals at AOCAF LVIII en route for the Banijan run to the final of that tournament, as she came off the bench behind Okparro. She did the same at World Cup 83, playing crucial minutes there as well. She was able to earn herself attention in the transfer market, and now she plays for the Gwinevra Barbarians. She has shown her talent for the Barbarians, scoring seven goals in the league and 11 in all competitions in her first season for the Barbarians, where she was a regular fixture in their starting XI, and helped the team get 2nd in the league and earn a Champions Cup berth, as well as scoring in the Marshall Cup Final, which is Apox's major domestic cup competition. She has performed at expectation in Apox.

And now, of course, with Okparro's retirement, she has been handed the #10 jersey for the national team. This is a big moment for her, as she is now a full-time starter for the Kadongo Kamu. There are younger players who are chomping at the bit to wear the #10 jersey- youngsters like Momodou Sene and Abigail Admassu, fresh off of U21 World Cup glory, are making move to big money leagues to try and get her spot. The pressure is also building on her. She had a strong Eagle's Cup VIII. She was captain of the women's team at the Istria Olympiad, and while they were disappointingly knocked out in group play, she led the women's team to a victory at the 3rd Baker Park Open Cup, and with the return to the integrated squad, she hopes to help lead the side to glory in World Cup 86.

2. CB Kawsu Kaba

The center back has been excellent in his appearances for the Hoima Warriors in the BSL, with his past domestic season earning him plaudits from many around, and him just missing out on a spot on the All-Pro Team. The problem with Kaba, while extremely talented, is that, especially for hte national team, he lacks consistency. HE has been benched on numerous occasions by Marcus Waters, though he always goes back to Kaba to start a game, and play a majority of the match. Then 35 year old Center Back Abate Brehanu, however, repeatedly replaced Kaba defending big leads in big moments, illustrating the lack of the confidence in him.

But now, Brehanu has retired following the national team's bronze medals at World Cup 83, and Kaba has been asked to step up. He is competing fiercely and constantly with Demba Kinteh for the second starting center back spot in the squad. After winning a struggle with his club, he has decided to go on to play in the Nepharim Premiership, as Starling have just signed him for $8 million NSDs. He's hoping his move out of Banija to a top 5 league will pay dividends in the end, and help him cement a place in the starting lineup.

3. LW Gitonga Kahara

With the retirements of Chibuzo Afolayan and Assefa Yitebarke from the national team, the boy wonder is the undisputed star of the Kadongo Kamu, and has long been hailed as the savior of the sport in this country. That tells you everything you need to know about the Boy Wonder's meteoric rise through Banijan soccer. He has been given lots of nicknames- the Boy Wonder, Banija's Football Savior, the Deliverer, etc... And he has never played a professional club game on Banijan soil. When he was just 16 years old, he moved to Project Olimpo in Kita-Hinode, and starred in their youth league, one of the world's best. Project Olimpo won a league title, and Gitonga Kahara was the star of the team, winning the Golden Boot that season. He then, of course, went to the U21 World Cup as the player everybody had their eyes on- was he the real deal?

The answer was an emphatic yes. Gitonga Kahara, and the team in general, simply could not stop scoring in Valanora. He scored a stunning 10 goals at the Di Bradini Cup- taking the tournament by storm, and being not only the best player on the pitch for the Banijans, but arguably the best player on the pitch at the tournament in general. His value, and name, exploded on the international scene. Randolf Cherry, much to the chagrin of Project Olimpo officials, was pushing him to leave before the window- see what he'd do in a top-flight league, while his value was high with the memory of the Di Bradini Cup fresh. Of course, during the window, he'd be able to probably get a better deal. But the fact of the matter was this- a move was better for his immediate career prospects, even if it was a serious question mark for his long-term career prospects.

He went to Polaris, in the Terranean League East. He helped lead his team earn the Pablito Numede Trophy, and, with a third place finish, finish with a berth in the Champions Cup. He looked likely to be a star in that league for a long, long time to come- and then, it came crashing down, as the Terrenean League East has faltered. He then made a big money move to OAS Royal FC, becoming the first ever Banijan to make an 8 digit move, being valued at $10 million NSDs by the side from Northeast Atlantian Oceania.

Kahara is past his prime now, equidistant to both age 30 and the dreaded 40, but he's still Gitonga Kahara- the man, the myth, the legend- best known in his youth as 'the boy wonder'. He has played in every single World Cup for this Banija, only missing one World Cup Finals match due to suspension. He has the armband. He may give Waters some dilemmas- he's certainly a big game performer, but should the winger who is slowing down do the unthinkable- move out of the Banijan starting XI and into more of a super sub role? The ever popular captain has finally moved home as well, playing professionally at home for the first time in his life, signing with the Hoima Warriors. We'll see how he performs as the captain searches desperately for the last thing to secure his legacy with the Banijans- captaining the national team to the World Cup.

Busoga Islands National Team

Information
Country code: BUS
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: Bethany O'Donnell, 66, female, native of Brenecia. 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. That lead to turning Pikemouth into one of the larger second-tier sides into a consistent UICA challenger. Unfortunately, she lost her way somewhat at Northern Union. With the SRS, she consistently lived up to expectations for four years, but rarely exceeded them. She was let go in her fifth year after a poor start to WC84 qualifying, but a third place finish at IAC8 the year before remains a feather in her cap. She began in AOCAF LX with this squad- while they struggled there, she has made big changes to the squad to mold them in her image for World Cup 85 Qualifying.
Senior Assistant Manager: Xavier Mosobo. 44 years old, male, native of Banija.
Captain: Hibbaan al-Shareef
Alternate Captain: Mohan Thakshak.
Home Kits: Red
Away Kits: Black
Alternate: White

Notes:

Lakiska City Field
Image

The stadium is located in the nation's capitol, and the largest city on the South Island of Lakiska. It has a capacity of 31,000, and is host to Lakiska Sporting Club, the only team from the Busoga Islands in the Banijan Soccer League.

Orange Field
Image

The stadium is located in the country's largest city, Dukuma, and is on the North Island. it has a capacity of 17,000, and it is host to Dukuma Sporting Club, who competes in the Banijan Northwestern League, one of four regional leagues in the second tier of the Banijan/Busogan pyramid, and who are the reigning champions of the RBSA Cup.

Dukuma Oval
Image
Capacity of 63,000, located in Dukuma, North Island

This is primarily a cricket stadium. It is also located in Dukuma, on the North Island. It is most famous for being the host of the World Twenty20 X Final. However, it will be converted for use for football during World Cup Qualifying, to host exactly one game, due to its significantly superior capacity in comparison to any other stadium on the North Island. It will host the Squornshelous Remnant States match due to both their status as a serious competitor for one of the group's two qualifying spots, and the intrigue of hosting their manager's previous squad.

Lakiska City Cricket Park
Image
Capacity of 54,000, located in Lakiska, South Island

This park is also primarily a cricket ground. This is in the nation's capitol, Lakiska, on the South Island. The stadium has hosted exactly two World Cup Qualifiers, hosting a game against Vilita in World Cup 83 Qualifying, and a game against Chromatika in World Cup 84 Qualifying. Thanks to its superior capacity, it will be used for a pair of designated 'big games' in the second half of Qualifying, as BISA look to increase their home field advantage during the stretch run.

Mrii National Team
Image

For competition in the 86th World Cup qualifiers
Right: An artist's rendition of Solara Vol, Mrii legend (in her Sabrefell Moths duds).
Style: 4-4-2, +1.5
Nickname: the Reavers

Note that most players are satyrs, as pictured, though with a variety of skins tones--mostly in various shades of blue, purple, and red. They're on average very tall, along the lines of human professional basketball players, and specialize in aerial play thanks to the elevated header control courtesy of their horns. Their stature also lends itself to a fast and aggressive attacking game, leveraging long strides, high stamina, and imposing presence to pressure and wear down the opposition. While there are certain Mrii who show a phenomenal amount of dexterity on the ball, they're generally the strikers; small, quick humans that can "get under" Mrii backs have been a problem spot for the team, though under Tailtiu Brennan's tutelage they've become much more adept at punishing mistakes with brutal counterattacks.

GK - 23 - F - 25 - Hadrii Tiaant - Image Jlinal Cove FC

Mara Solaani finally decides it’s time to call it quits on the national stage, now that the present and future of Mrii goalkeeping seems secure. Voted the second best keeper in the world by the Galacticos, it’s no surprise to see Dinii still wearing the #1 shirt. Dun cleanly slides into the backup slot that Mara left behind, having been impressive in Chromatika while being a core part of Chromatik’s success (even if they finished a bit out of the loop for title contention).

There will be a real battle for who gets more of Dinii’s time off, as Hadrii isn’t your typical third keeper--they were the hope for the future, and are quickly becoming the hope for now, seeing how Jlinal Cove comfortably won the Declasse Division with a league-best defense. Half-quals update: Well, Dinii has gotten utterly shit on in several games. Two 5-4 wins, a 5-3 wins, and a catastrophic 2-2? Sure, wins are wins, and weaknesses in the backline are still ever-present... but damn that's a bad look. Dun will be stepping up and putting on a trial for why he should get more starting time going forward.

DEFENDERS
LB -  2 - F - 33 - Pia Levaani     - Image Rozelle
LB - 13 - F - 29 - Alcaantra Tine - Image AFC Hosignr
CB - 3 - M - 34 - Maas Halder - Image Oljestaden IF

CB - 14 - F - 24 - Yngriit Kalabaan- Image AFC Hosignr
CB - 15 - M - 25 - Tayaaga Romneir - Image Osarese Marcadia
RB - 5 - F - 30 - Karii Bruun - Image Crisisbless United
RB - 16 - F - 26 - Kiora Moor - Image AFC Hosingr

The first line of defenders is one hand-picked to fit Brennan’s counter-attacking style. Pia’s high defensive line often features her forcing errors out of the enemy team or being ready to dive forward at a moment’s notice. Maas has calmed down over the years and is much less of a murderer, though playing in Audioslavia ensures he doesn’t completely forget that art. Instead he’s assumed the role of the veteran voice that keeps everyone in line, leading by the way of teaching others not to make the same mistakes he did.

Paarsimer has excelled under that tutelage, having stellar coverage and being perhaps the cleanest tackling satyr there is. That’s counteracted by Karii’s presence. She’s a shorty by satyr standards--a mere 6’3”--and while the years (and playing in a majority-human league) have helped her overcome that stigma, it’s hard to condition out the chip-on-the-shoulder mentality that lends the malice to her challenges. She’s the team’s bruiser, and will be coming after your cocky striker.

The bench is, well, most of Hosingr’s defensive line. They’re a competent, cohesive unit that lets Brennan give a big chunk of the lineup a collective day off. Alcaantra and Kiora aren’t world-breakers but are more than confident enough to handle lower-ranked teams for ninety minutes or top teams for 30; Yngriit is getting talked up as Maas’ direct replacement, and has been drilling extensively with both Paarsimer and Tayaaga for maximum flexibility going forward.

MIDFIELDERS
LM -  6 - M - 30 - Popo Tevainen   - Image Bruul Skewers
LM - 17 - F - 27 - Paraise Haart - Image Crystal Fair HC
CM - 7 - F - 34 - Malia Yonen - Image AFC Corvistone

RM - 20 - F - 29 - Olaana Tagarii - Image Maal Angels
AM - 9 - F - 27 - Otalia Kasmiir - Image Brinemouth

And that brings us to the overworked heart of the Reavers, the midfield. Brennan relies heavily on Popo’s legendary endurance to keep things moving, a vital front-to-back connector. With a spate of big-name retirements this cycle, Malia is without a doubt the core the team is built around and she wears the armband with pride. She might start to lose a step as qualifiers drag on but her canny abilities both on and off the ball will definitely shine through. Malia is the heart of the squad; the soul is Otalia. She’s only the second Mrii to play for a Gang of Six club in Nephara! (rip North Laithland, Paarsimer was too late to count.) Though she is having to balance two playstyles; for the Reavers she plays an aggressive opportunity-creating game, mixing up technical advances with physical crashes to keep opposing defenders off-balance. There’s some concern that her new role at Brinemouth, in a slower and more deliberate distribution role, might have her off the marauding game. Brennan is confident that Otalia is more than capable of rising to the challenge. Tia, along with her historic partner in crime Pia, are the cross masters that are wildly dangerous to leave unchecked on a wing. And with a shakeup to the striker lineup--see below--those crosses are going to be even more dangerous.

The midfield depth is one of the more interesting question marks on the roster sheet. Paradise and Olaana are both flexible all-rounders who’ve excelled in the lower-pressure environs of the MNL and the United League, but have never quite had the opportunity to prove their mettle in higher-stakes play. Ÿya and Lavinia are two up-and-comers on similar arcs, but are still earlier in their careers--in the returned Shottic Premier League and Nepharan First Division, respectively. With a move to the A-League for Lavinia and the Schottic league starting to regain its former glory, they may be getting that test in time to get a look for first-time play in a cycle or two. And finally, the non-roster invitees (see the abridged roster for details) deserve a special mention; they’re not likely to make it to Drawkland or Newmanistan, but Idi, Alkrÿ, and Älita are phenomenal talents that could very well have a big impact coming off the bench during qualifiers. Many pundits are projecting them--along with Filia--as being the first distinct Mrii ‘golden generation.’ Only time will tell how that plays out. (Oh, and Idi will be the first human to don the blue and white for a senior Mrii side! Progress!)

STRIKERS
ST - 10 - F - 26 - Istria Saara    - Image Coret Hawks
ST - 11 - F - ?? - Tali’raia - Image Crystopolis City (note: is a dryad)
ST - 0 - M - 31 - Mako Silanii - Image Ponyville United
ST - 21 - M - 25 - Beiren Reiger - Image Harbor
ST - 22 - F - 25 - Äzyr Fæwin - Image AFC Hosingr

Striker has always been the position where the Reavers had an embarrassment of riches and this cycle is no different. And that’s despite finally losing the leadership of Solara Vol, stepping back from the international scene at 39 years old after being with the squad since its inception in BoF64. Tali’raia will always have a spot on the squad as long as she deigns to, and at the moment she certainly deigns. A skilled dryad provides a very useful change of pace to typical satyr physicality, with a smooth and flowing gameplan that can almost be described as “lilting.” That and her ability to seemingly dribble straight through defenders as if they weren’t there.

There’s a bit of a surprise as Istria gets put first on the teamsheet--and even takes over Solara’s #10--ahead of Mako, who’d been serving well as Tali’raia’s strike partner recently. There’s a few theories cropping around, but the one Brennan has given the most credence to in interviews was that Istria’s skilled hornplay makes better use of Pia and Tia’s crossing skills than Mako’s cannon of a right hoof. But it shouldn’t be taken that means Istria is going to be getting all of the playtime, nor even Tali’raia--any combination of the talents here are a potent pairing, and there’ll be a lot of rotation to make sure Beiren (a marauder who likes to intimidate defenders) and Äzyr (a fast and agile sort who is great at getting into brilliant positions--if she can learn to finish she’ll be a terror) get their reps in and keep Istria honest about improving to keep that spot.

Official Roster for the 86th World Cup


About Huayramarca: The Plurinational State of Huayramarca, also known as ”Huayramarca Mamallaqta” in Quechua and ”Huayramarca Suyu” in Aymara (literally: Windy Country), is an extraordinarily diverse nation in terms of geography that’s located up north Atlantian Oceania. Crossing three time zones, from the coasts to the jungle, passing massive cordilleras such as the Andes and Sierra, a nation with 36 million inhabitants that belong to 9 different ethnical groups.

Huayramarca as such is a relatively new nation for the traditional standards of it, since it was constituted on 1822 (currently, we sit on 1981 according to the Inca Calendar), the main focus of building this nation was to help different ethnic groups to gather force into the region, in order to be recognized multiversally as a nation, hence, may gather some international protection in case their rights would be abused all of a sudden by an external force.

Being completely ignorant on what was happening on the neighborhood, the Aymara, Quechua, Shuar, Guarani, Montubio, Tsáchila, Huaorani, Andoa and Candoshi ethnics decided to form the Republic with the support of neighboring nations such as the Royal Kingdom of Québec. Migration from Québec happened in the late XIX century, mostly peoples known as ”Guayabalenses” decided to move in order to seek a stable place for their families, considering that their home soil was apparently brushed off the map by a dictator called “Gregory”. That last point forced the Huayramarcans into a stronger union in order to survive.

Until the middle XX century, Huayramarca managed to survive economically from llama, alpaca and vicuña herding, since its skins are highly valuable in neighboring Québec due to their strong winters; also, coffee production helped Huayramarca to build some solid institutions that promoted national expansion near the neighboring Cocoabo Forest, that place is “La Selva”, a lush but quite dangerous forest with hundreds of rivers that come from the Andes. After some years of exploration, the authorities met the first indigenous peoples of the zone, which were exploited in order to produce rubber for tires and some mysterious chickens that were provided in order to even more mysterious sacrifices to a deity, which the local people and even the rest of Huayramarca wasn’t able to understand how she works, granted, it’s not even a part of the Incan Mythology which includes Inti (the Sun god) and others.

Said abuses committed against the jungle inhabitants caused a heavy political turmoil around 1950, which formed a divide in the nation that still remains until today: Serranos (highlanders), Costeños (coastals) against selváticos(jungle inhabitants); Those divides weren’t noticeable in economic terms but politically, with constant attempts of coup ‘d etat against the government. That situation caused some issues with the neighboring Québec, who neglected to support financially any of those groups if they don’t manage to cooperate between themselves in order to provide prosperity to a heavily hunger-suffering nation back in the time.

Aymara and Quechua peoples took the power during the remaining part of the 50’s until 1969. On that period, Huayramarca suffered a lot of “huaycos” (mudslides) caused by heavy rain storms near the Andes and Sierra, those events killed at least 300,000 people and urged for an attempt to reincorporate Huayramarca back into normality, but, how? The main bet of the government was to aim for the tourism industry, spamming the developed nations of Atlantian Oceania in order to make some tourists visit sacred places such as Illimani (a mountain that’s devoted as god for the Aymara folk), Huayna Picchu (the royal Incan palace for Quechua) and the sun drenched coast ranging from Guayaquil to Lima (specially Montañita, the best beach par excellence in northern Atlantian Oceania).

The formula was working decently, since the economy was reporting high growth numbers, but seemed to cause some lack of satisfaction on certain zones of the country, specially on the Jungle. Their inhabitants decided to support the Costeño elite in order to beat the Serrano government. 1969 election would be marked for the Huayramarcan history by the magnitude of the sabotage made against the current government, to the point of bribery or killings for their supporters, those incidents made the Costeño elite take control of government and focus even more on the Coast and Jungle, leaving aside the Sierra.

Currently, Huayramarca has a huge wealth gap between zones, the coast boasts the fact of being the economical engine of the nation despite the fact that the capital city is in the Sierra Region, while the Jungle is slowly developing with some cities such as Ormeño, Madre Santa, Virú and several others boosted by oil findings and rubber production. Sierra may be in disadvantage, but recent developments in neighboring nations may make them turn relevant once again in the nation, since lithium batteries demand is growing up and Huayramarca’s Sierra possesses one of the biggest lithium reserves of the entire multiverse.

Basically, Huayramarca is a nation of contrasts and never—ending conflicts that’s well into the deep borehole named “the natural resource course” a hard situation to overcome due to the lack of proper education, critical thinking and result-focused mindset on the population, that constantly seeks for shelter in entertainment industries such as soap operas, music, and now football. Right now, power struggles between the Costeño government led by Hugo Mina and leftist pro-Serrano social movement “Ñucanchi Ñan” is making people more fond into football, since they really need an oxygen supply inbetween a lot of crisis and turmoil that could lead to the radicalization of this conflict, to the point of seeing Ñucanchi Ñan turning into a guerrilla, which would turn things darker for the Huayramarcan people.

Facts about the nation

Official Name: Estado Plurinacional de Huayramarca - Huayramarcan Plurinational State.
Motto: Unión y Libertad - Union and Freedom.
National Anthem: Noble Huayramarca, tu hermosa bandera.
Capital City: Huayramarca D.M. (Distrito Metropolitano) - Huayramarcan Metropolitan District.
Highest Point: Nevado Inti (7,920 masl)
Currency: Inti (I$ 1 = N$ 0.33)
Languages: Spanish, Quechua, Aymara (main); Six other indigenous languages.


Football-wise Information: As a society, Huayramarcans enjoy sports a lot, specially when politics may turn the nation into a chaos every second, they just want to run away from that horrible and desperate situation and may try luck on football.

Considering the levels of poverty on Huayramarca, many young people may give a shot for football in the chaotic Liga 1 or lower tiers, with the hopes of achieving a decent salary that may help their families to get away from poverty and huayco-prone neighborhoods. Liga 1 has fourteen teams from different parts of the country, mostly focused on the Sierra and Costa regions since those are the most heavily populated ones.

In the last year, the president of the Plurinational State, Hugo Mina (Costeño), thought it would be a great idea to form a fringe squad for the AOCAF and then try to make it into Baptism of Fire or World Cup Qualifiers, hence he asked for Eliezer González (head of the Huayramarcan Football Federation) to try and apply for said tournaments. He sent notes in order to sign-up for those events, but he sent them incorrectly, at AOCAF, he sent it to a grandmother living up near the Andean Organization for Coffee, Agriculture and Forests (located at Cumbayá) instead of sending it to the proper AOCAF tournament organizing committee, which turned González into laughing stock for several weeks in Huayramarca. Despite that, González managed to sign-up properly for the WC, despite he was rejected for BoF because he applied to the “Burger of Fire” and not the Baptism of Fire.

After all, the HFF managed to convince 25 players from the amateur-ish Liga 1 sides to build the National Team, whose nickname is resumed to “Kuntur” (The Condors), all those players range from being high school students, to chemists, bus drivers, and even people from the local tavern, whose preference is revealed on how they named their team “Real Ebriedad”, which was later supported by Cristalina, the main brewery firm from Huayramarca. Those 25 players decided to investigate some football techniques and decided to apply them at the different games they played on the inaugural Liga 1 season that was won by Real Ebriedad (in a game where corruption was noticeable as how the referee was given beer instead of an energetic beverage).

Nothing that would be possible without the support of Omar Caicedo, a Costeño who migrated to Québec and decided to learn some football techniques while managing Beyreuth University, where he won three national titles out of eight seasons on his span with them. Caicedo is a fan of high-pressure football, known as “gegenpressing” or “El Huayco” as Huayramarcans may call if (specially Serranos, since they might be quite shy or sometimes plain dumb that doesn’t like to attack) Anyways, Caicedo’s strategy proved right on some matches played by Huayramarca against their northern neighbor, the Royal Kingdom of Québec, beating them 5-1 at Huayramarca’s Estadio Nacional (located at 4,012 masl only?!…) and tying 2-2 at Iqaluit’s Ice Hockey Rink (that’s what the players thought at playing in a frozen city… ¡Achachay!) If you wonder what’s ¡Achachay! Well, figure out you’re on top of the mountain receiving wind and gelid weather right into you, if you did it, welcome to Huayramarcan’s sense of cold shivering!

Well, coming back to football, Caicedo’s devotion for 4-2-3-1 is unquestionable, he always loves to boast of having a neat defense, two defending mid fielders that may aim to recover possession when needed, or even having one of them switching to creative duties in support of the team’s brain, Ian Mamani, then, two wingers feeding the sole striker up in the middle of the box. That striker may often go back and try to recover balls and make a power play from himself with support of a winger and then seek for a goal. He did demonstrated a lot during the first part of the World Cup Qualifiers, earning some mixed results during it, but it failed for a part of the second half, where the team accumulated an 11 winless game streak added that they weren't capable to snatch a win during their first eight local games, in fact, their first home win came at the 9th home game, after that, they won three out of their four last home games, earning a 8 games unbeaten streak to finish off the Qualifiers, which was a quite impressive recovery after having their morale smashed on the floor and some players even considered suicide, since they were considered to be a mediocre living fail walking through their home cities streets.

Said streak wasn’t a mere happening, it was somehow a confirmation on how the Huayramarcan National Team had turned into a squad that tried to consolidate themselves as a hardworking team, with limited chances to put some squads in troubles but capable enough to defend well and to avoid harm being done against them. The Cup of Harmony 77 was an interesting test for the team, to see if they are capable to handle out the nerves of what it implies to be struggling for a knockout spot until the last second of the last match, which is what happened to the Condors, since they tied their first three games, they had a chance to get into the last rounds but they had to face Port Ember, the top seed of their group. Huayramarca succumbed to the nerves and wasted a 2-0 lead to see how Port Ember scored five goals in quick succession, nothing more to do for a Huayramarcan squad that seemed capable to pull off a decent feat.

This AOCAF tournament will see how a somehow forged squad could perform against the top dogs into their region, a path that won’t show immediate results and may fuel some anger amongst the Huayramarcan populace and media, but, the patience of Omar Caicedo and his pupils will be determinant in order to see if this generation profiles themselves to be somehow relevant or will be submerged into the dark deep of mediocrity.

Something that makes Huayramarcan football so distinguishable is that they are prone to do long range shots, due that they are used to play at significant heights, the lack of oxygen may make the ball travel further without applying a lot of strength during the mechanics of kicking the football, that is known as the “Andean Effect” and may cause serious troubles for visiting sides on Huayramarca, adding the main fact that breathing might be harder for those used to low altitudes.

Without further ado, the starting XI and substitutes are presented in the following tables:

Team mentality: Huayramarcans, per se, are bold and quite diverse between the team due to the regional contrasts among them: You might note some surnames such as: Condori, Mamani, Quispe, Sayritupac, etc. Those are Serrano surnames. Serranos as such are quite shy people with non-serranos, between them, great footballing societies may be made due to their complete understanding of each other, they are quite homogenous on how they act and may be predictable for each other. But, for the non-expert eye, Serranos are one on their kind and could result unpredictable for them, since they love to do things at fast pace between them, without doubt one could send a 60 meters cross with complete confidence that they might find their teammate, with this, you can notice that Serranos are overconfident on themselves and somewhat dubious with Costeños and Selváticos. Other characteristic of Serranos is that they are quite easy to intimidate, being shy and short-sized doesn’t helps, but in that situation, they might opt to act even better than they do for the sake of shutting your mouth.

Costeños and Selváticos (jungle) in the other hand are confident with everybody, even if they might not receive the same treatment by their Serrano fellows. Those two groups conform the rest of the team and might do good societies on field, declining the quality of their chemistry when trying to connect with Serranos, due to the latter shy mood. Physically speaking, Costeño and Selváticos are people who boast being the tallest overall in the team, also, their mania for body preparation at gyms make them suitable to defensive duties and running on the wings since they love running crazily (they usually do that, since they are used to run away from police or a mob of angry Serranos after robbing).

Overall, the team has some issues while trying to build chemistry, since there are two well-marked groups with some issues, but may try to join forces when needed or when they are being heavily massacred (football-wise) such as it happened on World Cup Qualifiers, when they were 3-2-6 on the first half of Qualifiers, they managed to comeback decently with a 5-6-2 sheet for the second leg, turning it into an overall 8-8-8, which is nothing bad for the usual accountability of unranked nations. Leaving aside those issues, the team boasts some decent characteristics for running on the wings, the team itself is fast paced but may have problems while struggling physically (especially if a Serrano is trying to mark) since they aren’t so strong to do that, albeit, the consequences of it may be noticeable only with high-ranked teams.

Cup of Harmony and AOCAF weren't precisely the best participation that Huayramarca could've done, at least they put some decent opposition on the CoH with three tied games and losing the final one, despite they had the chance to get into the knockouts had they won the game against the top seeded side of Port Ember, but two goals were the nail into the coffin for the Condors. Equestrian States, the hosts of AOCAF were the ones ready to face Huayramarca for its debut, a shameful and one that Huayramarca will be likely to skip the page since the hosts drove over the Condors with an astounding 7-1, then, some defeats were complicating Huayramarca and left the side without chance to reach the playoffs, one tied game and the first victory ever of this side against Yesopalitha were the games that somehow let Huayramarca with some dignity and not being able to be the worst team of the tournament.

For the second cycle in World Cup Qualifiers, things will not change and the same squad with the same managing team will try to do a somewhat decent participation in a group that looks as complicated as the last WCQ one did seemed. There's some experience for this side right now, also, their skills might be improving since they are getting the real professional experience rather than the one they could find this year in the inaugural season of the Huayramarcan Liga-1|2|3 system. Caicedo had some hard time during the AOCAF, his head would be on risk in another nation, but being the only one able in Huayramarca to manage a team like this one is a point on his favor, still, he does know that patience won't be eternal, hence, the need to recover the path will be fundamental, specially on home where there could be a lot of advantage, even more in the capital city, perhaps one of the most difficult venues in the multiverse. Risks have been taken, Caicedo decided to take the team into a series of high-performance camps all across Huayramarca instead of taking friendlies, since he considers that chemistry and tactics need a new breeze, specially an adaptation to a new physical stamina level that he does want to apply to the players, hence, a lot of physically-demanding activities have been done by the team during the New Year holidays.

To finish with this part, Huayramarca is that kind of team that may be overconfident sometimes, but if you press them to their limits, they might react in unsuspected ways, be those positive or negative for their interests, you don’t know what would happen in the Serrano, Costeño or Selvático mindset. As they do on the local league, they might try to do some antics to their rivals, be it: providing beer instead of water to their rivals, or the classiest one, giving distillated “ayahuasca” (vodka-like alcohol) and pass it like water and make their rivals be drunk, taking advantage of their influence to beat the rival team. Of course, they might not abuse of this resource, Serranos might ask Inti for it.

Game Scheme: Caicedo aims to use always a 4-2-3-1 scheme that he dubs it as “El huayco” (the mudslide) due to an analogy he made of his team with such a devastating natural phenomena: “We aim to build a fast team, aiming to be unpredictable for the others while using our regional paradigms in our favor. The less known we are, the more lethal we could be and that’s why I love not having a specific plan.” That’s what Caicedo wants to use, but in reality, there are some hints to analyze what he loves to do with his teams, especially on Beyreuth University of Québec.

El Huayco is a style of play in which you look to win back the ball as soon as you lose it, and you try to win it back as high up the pitch as possible; that means you’re closing down a lot to put pressure on the player that's just won the ball back.

The idea is that the player who just won the ball will be vulnerable and won't have time to think about his first pass. You just close him down to win the ball back quickly as high up the pitch as possible, and then you initiate a counter attack. You're likely already half way there and ready to go past into space and score a goal.

You can also use this tactic to target specific weak players, if you have noticed a weakness in a certain team. Maybe central defenders or full backs aren't comfortable on the ball, and you can look to press and close down certain individuals to try and make the most out of this game pressing style.

For the last purpose mentioned, Serranos are heavily important, they might be the analogue of a dog felling your fear and then attacking, they as collective love to use their different point of views and implement them as one while attacking, then fast passes and maybe a long range shot may happen, especially if the team is playing on the highlands. If the team is playing on the coast or jungle, they might seek to control the ball and make the rival team run behind the ball for some time, in order to cause climatic exhaust on them, since coast and jungle are hot and terribly humid in this part of Atlantian Oceania, so it may pose a real challenge for teams not used to play in such conditions.

To achieve Caicedo’s main goal, there are several prerequisites for successful counterpressing. The decisive factor is the overall positioning of the team and their playing style right before attempting to counterpress. The players must play as close to one another as possible so that they can press together as a unit right after the ball is lost – which is a given in short passing football. At the same time, they should not stick so close to one another that they neglect to cover enough space. Usually, a good layout in possession and a good shape behind the lost ball go hand in hand.

Some trainers use the basic rule of thumb to “occupy the fewest possible zones with individual players, but the greatest possible distance between the players within those zones so that they don’t occupy the same space” to make the positioning simple to understand; although, with a rule of thumb like this, some aspects are lost in terms of complexity.

Many teams also have problems deciding when to stop pressing, for example, when we stop pressing if we can’t win the ball back? When should we retreat? How long should you press and with how many players? This is particularly problematic because the position of the ball is always changing. Therefore, there is a theory created by Caicedo – the five second rule. Immediately after losing the ball the team should press at top speed and with maximum intensity for five seconds.

If the team hasn’t recovered the ball within five seconds and there is no chance of immediately winning it, they should fall back into their defensive formation. Depending on the team, the number of seconds may vary. It is recommended that the strategic basics of “El Huayco” be coached in order to develop a flexible, situation-specific length of time for counterpressing.


For scorination purposes, set the style modifer of Huayramarca at +1.

The Kits: Huayramarca’s social mindset is to aim for local consumption in the long term, hence the HFF decided to hire “eva Sportswear” to manufacture the kits for the national team. “eva” decided to take the ball out of the park with some unique designs for Huayramarca, reflecting the national identity and adding up some motivational phrases on them for mere sake of marketing. Those kits are based on the geography of this nation, from the coast, to the highlands and jungle in order to promote a sense of national unity, especially on a stage that the national team might try to do something decent in their first World Cup Qualifiers venture.

As backgrounds, you might notice some decent spots that Huayramarca has to offer, such as Huayna Picchu, the mythical castle built in the Andes and thought to be built for the Incaic Emperors some centuries ago. On the second kit, the sacred Illimani, a mountain located just outskirts Huayramarca’s Metropolitan District, this 6540 masl mountain is believed to be an angel sent my Inti to protect the city against any disaster. On the third kit, the gigantic Guayas River is displayed, with some Guayaquil neighborhoods in it (Guayaquil is the third biggest city in Huayramarca), also possible home for some World Cup Qualifier games.

As for the goalkeeper kits, in their main kit, the second largest city of Huayramarca, and the main coastal city, Lima is featured, this city is known for their gorges near the coast, something like a potential protection against disasters as the so frightening tsunamis. To finish with, the magnificent Chimborazo mountain is featured in the background for the away goalkeeper shirt, with some important animals for the Huayramarcan folk such as the wild vicuñas, known for their weird habit of flesh-eating (Beware if you go there and see one of those, they might not be friendly if meat isn’t given to them).

Players description - Starting XI.

Nota bene: Caps considered before World Cup 86 Qualifiers - For national purposes, friendlies are never taken into consideration for official registries.

N°1 - Juan Mamani - GK - 23 yrs - Team: Ate FC - Height: 1.88 mts - Caps: 33 - Goals: 1

Mamani is an individual that believes he always is right, he tends to be creative when saving balls of creating some innovative ideas to take the ball forward, based so much in the fact that he is protective, spontaneous and loves to be independent in his actions. Currently, he is sad because he broke up with his girlfriend. Despite his relationship failure, he might seek some attention as the goalkeeper of the national team, forming decent bonds with his teammates in order to leave the baby steps soon in terms of footballing level. Also, he's brother with the creative mid of this team, Ian Mamani. He also has the curious record of scoring a free kick goal against Greater Lausitz, that goal helped Huayramarca to get their first ever victory at home soil on World Cup 85th, matchday 18th.

N°2 - Kevin Quispe - RCB - 20 yrs - Team: Real Ebriedad - Height: 1.75 mts - Caps: 32 - Goals: 2

A pretty average guy in terms of intelligence that has no life plan, hence he left studies in order to make a living with football. He is very secretive, doesn't likes even to tell his teammates what will be his next movement because he knows we will be wrong, Quispe has serious issues with anger management and may be rebellious, he is cold and ignores what the others might feel or think about him, he doesn't gives a fu*k of anything. Anyways, he's flabbergasted by the fact of being called to the national team, even more by the fact of being part of the starting XI.

N°4 - Carlos Vilca - LFB - 24 yrs - Team: Sporting Club El Alto - Height: 1.78 mts - Caps: 33 - Goals: 5

Vilca exemplifies the stereotype of a Serrano, he is overly analytical and optimistic, with some patience when a player might approach to him, he might take some minutes to make a mental profile of who he will face and how to block him in its right side. Despite being coordinated and loving to be the center of attention, he loves to be quiet and solitary with his own personal code of conduct, he might be extremely fair while robbing balls and could try to be the surprise factor, since he tends to react when needed, his two goals to equalize the match against Darmen (both first and second leg) helped Huayramarca to snatch vital points against a superior rival. Right now, he's submissive by the fact of being called by Caicedo for the national team.

N°6 - Felipe Fernández - RFB - 19 yrs - Team: Club Atlético Lima - Height: 1.85 mts - Caps: 33 - Goals: 2

Pipe, as known by his teammates is an extremely intelligent right fool back that adapts quite quickly to any situation he might face, he loves being orderly and hates mess. When playing, he is straight-forward and might argument with rivals, referee and even his teammates, he rarely praises others and values learning from experience, hence why he has a promissory future in football. Right now, he's kind by the chance given by the HFF to play for the national team.

N°14 - Santiago Chumacero - LCB - 23 yrs - Team: FC Atahualpa - Height: 1.81 mts - Caps: 33 - Goals: 7

Chumacero's perception of things might be out of this world, his mind might be some steps forward the others and might help to anticipate to some movements that may be done by the rival. For that purpose, he's always flexible, active and plays like he would be killed if he does a mistake, he's loyal with his team, faithful and gentle, hence he might be the motivator of the squad. Chumacero's right now really sorry with his mom, because he robbed her I$ 100 Intis to get a room and go with his girlfriend to a hotel and experience some intimacy. Also, he feels inspired by the fact of scoring 6 goals during the whole World Cup Qualifier process, four of those goals came on two consecutive matches, basically, a polyvalent when needed.

N°17 - Orlando Mina - CM - 20 yrs - Team: Sporting Club El Alto - Height: 1.95 mts - Caps: 33 - Goals: 4

One of the two defensive mid of the team, being the classical Costeño out there, Mina is the tallest and strongest player of the squad. Mina's attitude is being original and stubborn, giving you some classical Costeño vibes, consistent in his performance and devoted to God, he cares a lot about what he does, since he tries always to correct his mistakes and not suffering on them, instead, he uses them as feedback to improve his game and abilities. Mina's sad right now because his mother was fired from the job, although, he might provide some food for his family while playing with The Condors.

N°11 - Ian Mamani - CF - 20 yrs - Team: Illimani FC - Height: 1.65 mts - Caps: 33 - Goals: 7

The second of the Mamani brothers in this team, along with Juan, Ian has what Juan might lack sometimes, creativity and brightness, although they play in totally different positions and roles in the team. This creative mid and captain of the team is one of the big things among this team, a fast-paced and fussy person with lots of potential, euphoria that drives him to perform as what he can do, being the best of the entire nation in his role. Large crosses are his specialty, including long-range shots when playing on the highlands. Right now, his euphoria level has increased a lot, considering he got called to the national team, the fact of being called captain and being on the international TV screen for WCQ.

N°8 - Nicolás Allauca - CF - 25 yrs - Team: Huayramarca FC - Height: 1.80 mts - Caps: 33 - Goals: 6

Nico was a bus driver until the last three weeks prior to WC 85 Qualifiers, when he decided to enter to the amateur football world of Huayramarca, he was in luck that Caicedo watched him plat and fell in love on how he performed. Allauca is spontaneous and may not like to do training, he is a fast-moving and extremely practical (hates theories) defensive mid, that may mutate to a second creative mid with Ian Mamani and has also a decent capability to score goals while going to attack. Allauca is blunt, might hurt you with his eyes and ignores rules, he might be dramatical when somebody tackles or fouls him, in order to make that player get sent off of at least yellow carded. Nico is pleased with Caicedo for being called up to the team once again.

N°7 - Abraham Mendoza - LF - 21 yrs - Team: Huayramarca FC - Height: 1.63 mts - Caps: 33 - Goals: 3

The smallest of the entire team, Mendoza is a mentally strong individual who loves to work hard, play hard and also be a strong leader inside the team in terms of order. A competent but realistic player who may not be spectacular while playing on the wings, but pragmatical and effective when achieving his purposes. Perhaps, on his personal life he is the best positioned of all the group, since he's currently studying Industrial Engineering at the Huayramarcan Technical University and he's scoring some of the best grades ever in that institution. You might notice how Abraham's personal discipline is, and this is translated even to football, where he tries to compliment some weaknesses that he may have as his height, but he tries to compensate with some decent body-building routines. He might not be a prolific scorer for the standards of a winger, but he has at least a 35% of assists for the total of Huayramarcan goals scored during the Qualifiers, hence, somebody to take care of.


N°21 - Gabriel Sayritupac - RF - 21 yrs - Team: Real Ebriedad - Height: 1.75 mts - Caps: 33 - Goals: 8

Sayri as he's known by many people in his native Tulcán (near the Québécois-Huayramarcan border) is an artistic person in all senses of his life. Usually he makes a living by painting portraits of people visiting the Chimborazo National Forest Reserve, sometimes working on a local brewery or doing some football for fun. He doesn't stands being alone and might be that easy-going Serrano (which is weird, if we come to think it). He has some genetic problems that makes him quite prone to injuries, and when those occur, Sayri decides to get inebriated to let frustration go away. A dirty antic he has is that he's well known for giving alcoholic beverages to the rivals instead of water, he has developed modified ayahuasca in order to make it feel and look like water, which has fooled some teams. Keep an eye on him!

Despite that, Sayritupac is a well skilled winger, an antithesis of Mendoza, since he loves to be artistical while dribbling and doing a cross, he might try to do rabonas while shooting or passing and will keep attacking, even more than the usual for a winger like him, he always loves to risk it all.

N°21 - Bryan Tello - ST - 26 yrs - Team: Club Sport Cumbayá - Height: 1.86 mts - Caps: 33 - Goals: 16

A decently heighted Costeño as forward is always a neat solution for your goal needs, with good pace, stride and also physic abilities Tello is what every team may need for up front. He's factual since he studied Philosophy at the University of Cumbayá, a committed and self-confident man who might be extremely traditional to his striker role, he might seek for some space in order to go front, use his strength and move towards the goal. Tello is a somewhat strong leader among the shadows of the Huayramarcan national team, an outgoing and straight-forward person that could sometimes aggressive since he's prone to be insensitive. He's right now interested in evolving as a legend for Huayramarcan football, something that he is slowly building up, and those key goals against Nephara and Jeruselem prove it.

Substitutes:

Nota bene: In order to have a deeper understanding of Huayramarcan players, take in consideration the following list of personalities for the substitutes. For a better understanding of said list, take time to watch the substitute players list posted again down here and follow the order of said list. The first player on this list, has his mindset reflected in the left of the first row, the second in the right of the first row and then, so on until the last one:

Useful Information and Stadia: Before introducing the stadia, there’s some handy information for away fans who might visit Huayramarca. As said before, this nation has a quite complex geography and some long distances to travel for away fans, since there are only two airports: Huayramarca International Airport, located near Huayramarca Metropolitan District at the highlands, and the Jorge Guerra International Airport in Lima, on the coast. You might need to go up mountains or driving through them which is a complete odyssey due to the risks caused by the Andean geography itself.

People in Huayramarca might be passional about football pretty much everywhere, but more hostile when you go down the mountains, driving to the coast. Down there, if people don’t attack you, weather might do due to the offensive humidity, mosquitoes and heat that may occur there. In Lima, despite being in the coast, the weather is mild and great to play football, but there might be some sandstorms due to the deserts located south of said city. Coastal teams usually play at afternoon, when humidity may suffocate those not used to deal with it.

Same happens at the jungle, but the mosquito issue multiplies thousand-fold, also as humidity caused by constant rains that pass there in their transit to the highlands. Water absorption made by trees cause severe issues with an extremely humid weather, hence jungle teams decide to play often at noon, in order to torture rival teams.

On the Sierra things get worse, since the main problem up there is respiration. For a physical activity like football, people might need some weeks to acclimatize altitude and get an efficient breathing pattern that might supply their physical effort needs. Several cities are above the 2500 masl, even the capital city, which is located at 4000 masl, it doesn’t matters at which time they decide to play, if a team isn’t acclimatized, they will even faint during the game if they don’t have with them oxygen tanks to breathe before the game or if they don’t get some treatment into an hyperbaric chamber.

Stadia are distributed in order to have an equal distribution for regions, considering that there will be twelve local games at Huayramarca, Sierra, Costa and Jungla will receive three matches each one. Each region will receive a high tier rival and then a randomized sort of two other teams in other matchdays. You might contact the Huayramarcan Football Federation (OOC: TG me or shout me at Discord!) in case of more information or solving some needs for your team and fans.

Estadio Nacional de Huayramarca - Capacity: 45,500 - Huayramarca Metropolitan District.


Tenants: Ministry of Culture and Sports of Huayramarca.
Built in: 1968.
Altitude: 4012 meters above sea level.
Local teams: Illimani FC, Real Ebriedad, Huayramarcan National Team.
Data: Built in 1968, the Estadio Nacional is the jewel in the not so well-shaped crown of the Huayramarcan sport venues, an olympic stadium that might be a nightmare for visiting teams due to the altitude and weather of the city, which tends to be somewhat hostile everyday, even more if it's played at noon due to the sun's radiation at that altitude. Despite being an olympic stadium, people tends to set a lot of pressure in it, especially from the neighboring appartment blocks which tends to be crowded for the matches being held there (they might aim lasers from there, take care!).

Also, the walls near the dressing room have some curious messages as such: "Welcome to Huayramarca D.M. At 4,000 meters above sea level "is one of the first things the visiting teams will read upon entering the dressing room, perhaps to make clear the conditions to which they will be subjected throughout the game. It is still somewhat intimidating the following warning that is issued when they leave the visiting dressing room "Caution, if you have the following symptoms: Headache, vertigo, fatigue, tachycardia, nausea or vomiting, wheezing, dyspnea or inappetence, go to the medical staff, we are at your disposal."
Will host:
  • Huayramarca vs Netop. Matchday 1 - 18:00 - Weather conditions: Cold, 25% humidity, 7°C.
  • Huayramarca vs Ko-oren. Matchday 11 - 20:00 - Weather conditions: Windy and foggy, 75% of possibilities for a snowfall, -2°C.
  • Huayramarca vs Isles Rougieres. Matchday 15 - 15:00 - Weather conditions: Foggy, 55% of possibilities for a snowfall, 0°C.


Jungla:

Estadio Olímpico del Oriente - Capacity: 26,000 - Sechura.


Tenants: MuniSechura - Municipality of Sechura.
Built in: 1945.
Altitude: 560 meters above sea level.
Local teams: Sociedad Petrolera, Huayramarcan National Team.
Data: One of the biggest stadia in Huayramarca, the main hub of sports in the Jungle region is located at Sechura, a city of about 300,000 inhabitants which serves as logistical hub for operations of rubber production and for explorations into the dense jungle nearby. Sociedad Petrolera is a modest Liga 1 side, but one that tends to attract almost ticket sell outs every game, since people in that region tends to be quite passionated of football in order to forget their not so good daily life. At that city, one should take care of humidity, which tends to be quite strong at times, hence teams usually play there on afternoon or night, since heat might be something difficult to stand even for locals.
Will host:
  • Huayramarca vs 95X. Matchday 5 - 17:00 - Weather conditions: Mostly sunny, windy, 65% humidity, 24°C.
  • Huayramarca vs Québécois Acadiana. Matchday 9 - 19:00 - Weather conditions: Cloudy, 55% humidity, 21°C.
  • Huayramarca vs Tequilo. Matchday 13 - 15:15 - Weather conditions: Heavy rain, 100% humidity, 27°C.


Costa:

Estadio Metropolitano del Guayas - Capacity: 62,000 - Guayaquil.


Tenants: Autoridad Guayaquileña de Deportes - Guayaquilean Sports Authority.
Built in: 1980.
Altitude: 15 meters above sea level.
Local teams: Guayaquil Wanderers, Barcelona Sporting Club, Huayramarcan National Team.
Data: A kettle pot, that's the definition for the biggest stadium in all of Huayramarca. "El Metropolitano" is the most recently built stadium in the nation and will make the debut for international football in Huayramarca. Hosts two teams and the fan athmosphere in Guayaquil is perhaps one of the most intimidatory ones in the multiverse, fans throwing you stones while receiving, throwing flares, extremely noisy people all around and the incredibly hot and humid weather that dominates the city may be lethal for some teams when trying to visit. Rescuing a tie from here may be considered something great, since you survived the "Guayaco" hell. Hence that, teams often love to play at the afternoon, specially at 3:00 P.M. in order to squeeze out the rivals in exhaust.
Will host:
  • Huayramarca vs Semarland. Matchday 3 - 16:00 - Weather conditions: Sunny and oppressively hot, 65% humidity, 33°C.
  • Huayramarca vs Sajnur. Matchday 11 - 20:00 - Weather conditions: Cloudly, mildly hot, 55% humidity, 26°C.
  • Huayramarca vs Jeruselem. Matchday 17 - 15:00 - Weather conditions: Sunny, 85% humidity, 32°C .


My opponent, if they RP first, may do the following:

Godmod scoring events: No.
RP injuries to my players: Yes. (Contact me first, so we can agree)
Godmod injuries to my players: Y (Contact me as well)
Give red cards to my players: Y (Maximum of 3).
Godmod other events: Y (Contact me first.)

Nota Bene: Do not RP a pandemic on Huayramarcan soil, doing so will activate the ignore cannon.
