Players in bold are default starters. Other players can be substituted whenever necessary.

Head Coach and Playing Style
Following the poor performance in last World Cup Qualifiers, the GIFC appointed Poafmer Zahi Castillias to the hot seat, becoming the sole manager of the combined national team. Castillias is a former pundit for the Poafmersia Broadcasting Corporation, who left his job as the manager of the Poafmersian club Mancodas City after a poor title defence. He led Mancodas City to the PFPL title during their inaugural season, before leaving in the second season after a failed title defence, but not before leading the team to the FFI LdV semi-finals. Castillias took a 1 year sabbatical before becoming a pundit at the Poafmersia Broadcasting Corporation, and is happy to return to a managerial role for The Gothanita Isles.

The manager understands the style of football in TGI is slightly different from that in Poafmersia, so he choses to play a balanced possession-based football style for the team. The team is now more tactically flexible and willing to push forward whenever necessary, instead of relying on counter-attacks as the only source of goals. After the equally poor performance last Cup of Harmony where they failed to advance from the group stage, Zahi Castillias has made minor changes to the squad, while instead putting emphasis on understanding each other and playing for the ball more frequently.

Style Modifier: -0.001
Formation: 4-2-3-1 (default); 4-4-2 diamond, 4-3-3 (alternate)

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. Go through with me what you plan and I may easily accept it.)
- 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.

Sajnuran National Football Team


Stadiums

National Stadium

The National Stadium is the largest stadium in Sajnur, with a capacity of 102,000 people. Located in the capital city of Javoser, home to more than 12.5 million people, it is the primary arena for big sporting events in the country, hosting a semi-final and most finals of Sajnur’s FA Cup, and several finals of the Tarvolan League, tarvolan being a code of football indigenous to Sajnur and traditionally Sajnur’s biggest sport. It has also hosted the biggest of Sajnur’s concerts and the inaugurations of two Presidents.

Built in 1952 and renovated in 2015, the stadium has a retractable roof, air conditioning, free Wi-Fi, and affordable food and drink options to provide a comfortable experience for all fans while the stadium has been designed to allow fans to produce a raucous atmosphere befitting of large sporting events. The stadium is easily accessible by public transport, and has thousands of parking spaces for those who choose to arrive in their own vehicles.

Niurka Stadium

Home of FK Khadur, arguably Sajnur’s biggest football club, Niurka Stadium is located in the Khadur area of Ciarkhan, a bustling metropolis of 4.6 million people that serves as Laghia’s state capital. Laghia was a territory acquired by Sajnur in a war stretching from 1982 to 1996, and it is the Laghian people that popularised football in Sajnur. As a result, the province has eight of Sajnur’s 32 professional football clubs despite having only 1/8 of the country’s population, and Niurka Stadium hosts the other semi-final and some finals of Sajnur’s FA Cup.

The stadium, built in 2006, was named after Nicolae Niurka, who was a Laghian partisan that served as a general against Laghia’s pre-1982 rulers and was killed in combat in 1995, aged just 46. With a capacity of 73,000, it is the largest stadium used by a team in the Sajnuran Premier League. Like the National Stadium, it has a retractable roof, air conditioning, free Wi-Fi, and plenty of affordable food and drink options, with many food options being traditional to Laghia. The stadium is easily accessible by public transport, but parking space may be limited on particularly busy days.

Queen Haqla Stadium

Queen Haqla Stadium is a 60,000 seat stadium near the centre of Roskjepa, the capital of Delta state and, with 6.7 million people, the second largest in Sajnur. Home to Rivers FC, the stadium is a regular venue for intimidating displays from Rivers fans, with flares, aggressive chanting, and large banners being a common sight, especially in derbies between Rivers and cross-town rivals Stormers FC.

The stadium was built in 1960 and renovated in 2016, and has all the amenities of the National and Niurka stadiums, while being a prominent sight on the Jagaroi River. As such, along with bus and train, the stadium is also accessible by the Jagaroi River’s ferry. However, like in Ciarkhan, access by car may be difficult. Queen Haqla, for whom the stadium is named, reigned over Sajnur from 681 to her death in 727.

Siyaka Island Stadium

Siyaka Island Stadium is the largest stadium in the Asulian states, with 66,000 people able to fit within its confines. Located in the outskirts of Tawqush, a city of about 5.4 million serving as the capital of Archipelago state, the stadium is the home of FC Mazigh, the foremost football club in the Asulian states. Fans on Siyaka Island often bring instruments to matches, ranging from the arghul to large drums to even accordions, posing both as support to those they like and a distraction for those who they wish to lose.

The stadium is the newest of the four national stadiums, being built in 2017 on what was the Mujar port before it was bombed by the Sajnuran navy during a war that stretched from 1990-2003. The stadium is easily accessible by both car and public transport, and with the New Mujar port being built as part of the stadium development, coastal and island hopping ferries can also stop right outside the stadium.

(OOC: The WC 87 qualifiers takes place during the 2031-32 season in Abanhfleft time, so all references made here are current as of the 2030-31 season in Abanhfleft.)

Image
DEMOCRATIC REPUBLIC OF ABANHFLEFT
NATIONAL ASSOCIATION FOOTBALL TEAM - MEN'S


Quite how Ranulph Bustamante is still at the helm of this Abanhfleft team is very much a mystery, one that has given rise to a good number of theories, each one more unlikely than the one before. Now a clear line has been drawn in the sand: get to the World Cup proper and don't finish last in the group stage, or it's the sack.

BASIC INFORMATION
Name of nation: Democratic Republic of Abanhfleft
Demonym: Fleftic
Team colors: Blue, orange, and green
Style modifier: +3
Formation: 4-3-3
Head coach: Ranulph Bustamante (60 y/o, Abanhfleft)

STARTERS
GK: Guildenstern CARDEW 26 y/o, Sporting Ceneisis Image, co-captain
Under Vaughn Palladino, Guildenstern Cardew has turned into the clear number one choice between the sticks for Sporting Ceneisis. He may not be the player who shipped the least goals in the Premier League this season but he stopped enough shots to help the Blues to their fourth FPL title. Now it's time for Guildy to do the same for the national team.

RB: Melisizwe AFOLAYAN 34 y/o, Locomotive Imgortur Image
Let's be honest, Afolayan was never going to be flashy or the player a team builds itself around. He's solid and dependable down on the right side, a far cry from when he used to be a marauding wingback wannabe and a walking card magnet. But that's what experience and maturity does to a person. He already has a Fleftic Premier League title under his belt, but now he dreams of one more crack at the World Cup itself before he hangs up his boots from international football.

RCB: APOLLOSCLEIYALI 29 y/o, Rosenpfelblatz City Image
Though he was brought into the Rosenpfelblatz City setup at the relatively young age of 16, Apolloscleiyali Rarlingson Crausileine still plays with that curious mix of Daineri and Sunrisian street football. The Citizens may not have been consistent challengers for the title ever since Abanhfleft integrated into UICA and now IFCF, Apolloscleiyali remains one of the constants of this team, almost never putting a foot wrong. Because of this he was given Fleftic citizenship via the Alternative Football Program as a candidate for the Fleftic national team, but this is only the first time Apollo will actually represent the Revolutionaries, strangely enough.

LCB: Paco MATUNDAN 26 y/o, Xemlice Rovers Image
Paco Matundan must have thought his footballing career was over when he was released by Malabon SC following the Ravens' shock relegation from the FPL at the end of the 2025-26 season. Luckily a club from Greythrone called Air Force Superstar decided to take a chance on him, but sadly the club did little of note other than gaining promotion once before Greythrone itself collapsed into anarchy. Paco was only saved from falling into obscurity by a timely move to Xemlice Rovers where he has now settled down and made a name for himself, even if it is choking on title races.

LB: Caleb WAYNE 29 y/o, Wanda Island Wanderers Image
Another one of the generation of Fleftic defenders who also liked bombing up and down the wings who discovered that sticking to defending was actually what he does best. It was as a full-on left back that Caleb Wayne became instrumental in the Wanda Island Wanderers side that won the Fleftic Premier League in 2027-28, and is now one of the first names written down on Artemio Peres' starting eleven. Caleb also became the starting left back for Abanhfleft after Daisuke Ogigayatsu started putting in more time down the right side for Ludogorets Markovsky.

RM: Andor GAÁL 29 y/o, Malabon SC Image
Andor was one of those who stuck with Malabon after they were relegated and helped them get back up into the FPL after only one season in Unang Liga, but so far his only reward has been getting to play in the Challengers' Cup. Formation changes and new managers have turned him from a defensive midfielder to a right-sided one. He's still very much a box-to-box midfielder, but this does tend to leave his team a little short-changed in the middle of the park. He also became a dead-ball specialist during his time in the Fleftic second tier.

CM: DeAngelo LEVIN 33 y/o, Ludogorets Markovsky Image
Football tactics and formations in Abanhfleft don't use out-and-out central midfielders a lot at the moment, meaning Levin is often classified as a right midfielder for Ludogorets Markovsky, but in his heart of hearts he is still very much the spider sitting in the center of the web, er, pitch. After being in and out of the national team setup for a few years he appears to have finally nailed down a starting spot in quite possibly his final World Cup campaign as well.

LM: James CARMICHAEL 26 y/o, Xemlice Rovers Image
James Carmichael is a Xemlice Rovers youth product who rose to significance after he stood in for Fabrosu Nyema during the 2028-29 season after the latter was injured. James does a little bit of everything here and there such as breaking up attacks in the middle of the pitch and pinging in those diagonal passes. He's usually well disciplined, but when he goes in for a tackle, boy does he go in for a tackle.

RW: Marcus TABAREZ 26 y/o, Arsenal de Releinthi Image
Without a doubt the most expensive Fleftic player of all time. Marcus Tabarez cost Arsenal de Releinthi a whopping 120 million new penenks (80 million NSD) just to get him from Xemlice Rovers. The start of Marcus' Gunners career was not the best, coinciding with one of the worst seasons in the club's history, but slowly Tabarez is starting to justify his hefty price tag. Last season may not have been the best for Arsenal as a club, but it was a good one for Tabarez, chipping in 20 goals and 13 assists. Ranulph Bustamante now hopes that Marcus can do the same for the national team.

CF: Kareem DAGEN 31 y/o, Rosenpfelblatz City Image, captain
Kareem Dagen is still a goalscoring machine. Of that there is no doubt. But what is in doubt is how much of his goalscoring form he will be able to keep going now that his main provider in Max Fetfatzidis has hung up his boots permanently. No doubt that Kareem's supporting cast this time around is still as impressive as before, but whether they'll be able to live up to Max's insane consistency is another thing altogether.

LW: Arthur MacALISTAIR 29 y/o, Wanda Island Wanderers Image
Arthur finally completed the transition from midfielder to winger under Artemio Peres, and people are already saying it's the best move Arthur's ever done in his whole football career. Of course it helps that his first full season as a winger was also the season that Wanda Island Wanderers finally won the Fleftic Premier League. But MacAlistair's starting spot in the national team may no longer be as secure as before now that there's a new contender for the spot in the form of Riuwiee United's Elmo Bevan.

RESERVES
GK: Orestes KATSOURANIS III 32 y/o, Riuwiee United Image
Orestes the Third finally returns to the Fleftic national team after an 11-year absence. In the between his last appearance for the Revolutionaries and today, Orestes has gone to Riuwiee United from Marinos Thimpodopoulos, but only now has he managed to stake his claim for the number 1 shirt in the capital ciub, which is also probably the reason why he was only called up now as well.

GK: Carlos COHEN 37 y/o, Sporting Ceneisis Image
Not only has Guildy Cardew managed to displace Carlos Cohen from between the sticks in Sporting Ceneisis, the absolute madman has done it in the national team as well! But there's a reason for it. Clearly Cardew is the future of Fleftic goalkeeping, while Cohen is sadly in the past. Carlos may still be in his prime as a goalkeeper but Cardew has the higher ceiling, and clearly that is what Ranulph Bustamante is basing his selection on.

RB: Masakazu CHIBA 23 y/o, Riuwiee United Image
Masakazu Chiba is one of an ever-growing number of football players in the Democratic Republic who trace their lineage back to the Japanese nations such as Flardania and, in Masakazu's case, Aji No Moto. Although he was never capped for any of Abanhfleft's youth teams, Ranulph Bustamante is apparently convinced that Masakazu will be able to handle being a bench option for the senior national team for the current World Cup qualifiers.

RCB: Ram WALIA 29 y/o, Sporting Ceneisis Image
Who would have thought that little Ram Walia from Hithamandhoo in the Trendstart Colony would become the first man from his island to win the Fleftic Premier League? Certainly not Ram himself. From humble beginnings at AFC Hithamandhoo, Ram made his way into the youth academy of Sporting Ceneisis, where it looked like he was going to go the way of the rest of the Blues' infamous "loan army" until he showed what he was capable of as first a substitute for Naftali Singerstein, and then later on as the Fhulghamousian international's replacement. There's a reason why Ceneisis finally won their fourth title this season, and one of those reasons is Ram Walia.

LCB: Kenneth OWOBOWALE 32 y/o, Rosenpfelblatz City Image
Another former national player brought back into the fold after a decade or so in the wilderness. Left-sided center backs seem to be a particular weakness of the Revolutionaries at the moment, and while there's a decent crop of those rising up the ranks of Fleftic clubs, at the moment Ranulph Bustamante apparently believes that Kenneth is the best out of this bunch.

LB: Vipin NAGARKAR 29 y/o, Admiral Porcusces Image
Vipin Nagarkar wasn't that well-known outside of Admiral fans when they were relegated at the end of the 2028-29 season. He could have gone to any other team that he so chose, but he decided to stick it out with the Foxes in their campaign to get back into the top flight. He did just that, and he cemented his place in the side after solid and impressive performances at left back, and then VIpin sealed his place in the history of Admiral Porcusces by scoring the 78th minute goal that won the Foxes the 2031 SFA Cup Final. Safe to say that this is a call-up two years in the making.

RM: Max PIERCE 31 y/o, Rosenpfelblatz North End Image
Another area of the pitch where Abanhfleft are currently a bit thin is at right midfielder, and after much deliberation Ranulph Bustamante decided to put Max Pierce in as Andor Gaal's backup. There's nothing to separate the two aside from the fact that Pierce is slower and has the defensive subtlety of a nuclear bomb. But apparently Max is the best of the rest of Abanhfleft's right midfielders. This is going to end so well for the country.

CM: Toumain VINCELOT 34 y/o, Sarvusdalamoive Image
Whoever said that Toumain Vincelot was apolitical must not have a twii.tur account or any access to social media at all. The combative Sarvus midfielder has become one of the loudest critics of Fleftic President Matthias Green, claiming on an almost daily basis that Green would turn Abanhfleft into a "fascist superstate" even worse than the isolationist Empire of Greater Anglatia. Any other manager would have steered clear of Vincelot, but Ranulph Bustamante knows that Toumain can separate his politics from his football and remain rock-solid in the middle of Abanhfleft's midfield.

LM: Trevor IÑIGUEZ 29 y/o, Ludogorets Markovsky Image
The backup left midfielder was actually a tough choice to make for Ranulph Bustamante because there were two players who could very well have fitted into that spot on the national team: Travis Sevilla and Trevor Iñiguez. Both of them were gifted technical players with bags of skills with an eye for finding teammates in the final third. In the end, Bustamante opted to go with Iñiguez because the Fleftic Air Force didn't want Sevilla outside of the country in the event of an attack on the Democratic Republic.

RW: Palmer HICKS 21 y/o, Electric Yugal Image on loan from Locomotive Imgortur Image
In a team where the system doesn't have much use for a winger, how is one such right winger in one such team supposed to get game time? On loan to another club, of course! Palmer is entering the second year of a two-year loan deal to newly promoted Electric Yugal with an option to buy for the Bolts. He did well for Electric during their promotion campaign in Unang Liga, but can he do the same in the Premier League? Ranulph Bustamante believes Palmer can do it with the national team, so there's that.

ST: Mustafa BENSOUSSAN 24 y/o, Bananas FC Image
Bananas may have been relegated from the Premier League, but if that's not making Mustafa turn his head then nothing probably will. The young man is dedicated to the cause of bringing Bananas right back up, but unlike some of the other sides to have been relegated from the league in previous seasons, Bananas don't look like they would be able to do it as quickly. Nevertheless, Mustafa is still scoring goals for fun, and he will be more than a capable backup for Kareem Dagen in these qualifiers.

LW: Elmo BEVAN 28 y/o, Riuwiee United Image
Like many a youth before him, Elmo Bevan didn't really know where he wanted to go, what he wanted to do. He played in the middle of the park. He played as a forward. He played in the wings. And it was there on the left that Elmo finally found his calling, the place where he could put all of his talents on display. After helping Airbus Fhulghamous Besanza to another Fhulghamousian Premier League title, Riuwiee United activated his buyback clause, and the son of Owen Bevan has been doing a great job in the capital. Not good enough to break into the starting eleven of the national team, but a great job nonetheless.

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

Official name: May 26 Revolution Memorial Stadium
Capacity: est. 80,000
Record attendance: 82,399 (Riuwiee United vs. Arsenal de Releinthi; 17 November 2030)
Operator: Riuwiee United FC
Short history: The May 26 Stadium, originally known as Raschner Lane, and later on as Riuwiee National Stadium, was built in 1886 as a cricket ground, and it served as home for two semi-pro cricket teams before it was bought by the Riuwiee Capitals football team, which will later on become Riuwiee United. After the conclusion of the Catholic Revolution of 2008, the national government bought the controlling share of Riuwiee National Stadium and renamed it the May 26 Revolution Memorial Stadium, in commemoration of the May 26 Revolution that eventually established the nation of Abanhfleft. Riuwiee United still play in the May 26 Stadium, but now it is also the chosen stadium for home games by the Fleftic national football team.


Official name: State of Wanda Island Arena
Capacity: est. 68,000
Record attendance: 69,076 (Wanda Island Wanderers vs. Riuwiee United; 31 March 2030)
Operator: Wanda Island Wanderers FC
Short history: The State of Wanda Island demolished the old Wanda Island Arena in 1998 to make way for a new and improved football stadium that follows international standards. Construction began in 1999, and finished just in time for the beginning of the 2001 Premier League season. The Wanderers played in a nearby high school athletic field for the duration of the arena's construction. In 2010, when IKEA entered into a sponsorship agreement with the Wanderers, the arena was consequently called IKEA Arena for sponsorship reasons. This agreement is expected to continue until 2020, after both sides came to a six-year contract extension.


Image

Official name: Monsanto Stadium
Capacity: est. 62,000
Record attendance: 64,822 (Arsenal de Releinthi vs. Wanda Island Wanderers; 27 April 2030)
Operator: FC Arsenal de Releinthi
Short history: Arsenal de Releinthi mooted moving to a new stadium ever since 1993, but it was only in 2002 that the club managed to get permission to begin construction on the site of a former landfill after disputes with the city council and land planning office. Even then, it was only after Monsanto agreed to shoulder the cost of the new stadium that it was even built, and because of this, the stadium was named Monsanto Stadium. Arsenal de Releinthi and Monsanto entered into a seven-year contract extension this year, potentially extending Monsanto's sponsorship of the club up to 2021.

Official name: DaPanzer Oubie Park
Capacity: est. 40,000
Record attendance: 46,709 (Xemlice Rovers vs. Ludogorets Markovsky; October 31, 2011)
Operator: Xemlice Rovers FC

The Tranquil Isles of Riena
First-team squad for World Cup 87 (Qualifiers)


For opponents
I give my opponents permission to roleplay anything within reason, save for cycle- or career-ending injury and death of my players. If you think a particular event may be too unrealistic or outlandish, feel free to contact me either via telegram or Discord to discuss. You can also contact me if you need me to furnish further details for your roleplay.

Please do not roleplay anything pandemic-related in relation to Riena or Riennese characters. I will not be recognising the existence of any pandemic in any form whatsoever.

Please also note that I will usually update my records for the Riena national team in the hours following a scorination. I would appreciate it if you could take a minute to check here for the Riena starting XI, goalscorers, and substitutions before beginning work on your posts. In the event that I have not gotten around to updating the records, feel free to roleplay the match as you see fit - given the brand of fluid football Riena plays, as well as the versatility of Riennese players in general - you have a lot of scope to be creative with just about anything football-related!

For hosts
Please apply a style modifier of 0 - thank you.

Players listed in orange are starters in their respective positions. All statistics are accurate as of the start of this tournament.


1 • Miho MINATO
Goalkeeper; 23; 72 caps; 14 clean sheets

A steady and reliable shot-stopper, Minato is a physically imposing presence in goal. She is not a flamboyant technician and dislikes taking unnecessary risks with the ball, preferring to quickly recycle possession into her defenders or midfielders. Owing to her physical advantage, Minato is a goalkeeper who is not afraid to take charge in her own area, often taking it upon herself to catch or punch crosses into the six-yard box instead of leaving her defenders to sweep up the danger. Blessed with sharp reflexes, decent positioning, and a proactive approach to goalkeeping - especially in her own six-yard box - Minato is a calming presence behind her defenders.


25 • Subaru KUGIMIYA
Goalkeeper; 22; 10 caps; 1 clean sheet

Kugimiya is an aggressive sweeper keeper who is not afraid to help out her defenders whenever the side are caught in possession. She possesses the requisite pace and technical ability to thrive in a Riena team placing great demands on its goalkeeper's footwork. Her game revolves around shutting down opposition counterattacks using her anticipation and speed off her line, allowing the team's to adopt a higher defensive line than would otherwise be possible, and initiating attacking moves with accurate long range distribution, bypassing high pressing manoeuvres by the opposition. The high risk, high reward nature of her play style means that Kugimiya is more susceptible to committing high-profile errors and mistakes, and she can be prone to catastrophic lapses of concentration. Can be equally capable of the sublime or the farcical.


50 • Maya SHIINA
Goalkeeper; 20; 1 cap; 0 clean sheets

Shiina is a youth-team goalkeeper, and the most callow of Riena's current batch of goalkeepers. She is a good reflexive shot-stopper, but her game remains riddled with the flaws and deficiencies that one would expect from a player in the infancy of her international career, but she is a promising prospect who may well develop into a decent senior-level goalkeeper - if she manages to supplant both Minato and Kugimiya for a spot in the starting XI.


3 • Kaede IGARASHI • Vice-captain
Left-back/left wing-back; 22; 64 caps; 12 goals

The vice-captain of the team, Igarashi is a powerful, athletic left-back who can be relied upon to do her primary job of defending well. She is a largely conventional full-back, an atypical departure from Riena's abundance of suicidally-attacking wing-backs/wingers, who is actually better at keeping the ball away from her own goal than she is at forcing it home at the other end. While she is not nearly as adventurous as Uruha is, Igarashi still contributes to Riena's attacking play - she is the best crosser in the team, and her ability to strike a ball cleanly has earned her a reputation as one of Riena's set-piece specialists. Especially dangerous from free-kicks, and can be expected to go for goal more often than not. Firmly established as one of the leaders and stalwarts of this youthful team.


4 • Minami KAGURA
Right-back/right wing-back; 23; 64 caps; 2 goals

Kagura is a canny full-back who focuses on providing service from out on her flank. She is not as offensively-minded as a typical Riennese full-back, usually preferring to stay deep as part of a three-player defensive line whenever Riena are moving forward with the ball, but remains a useful option when the team are in possession due to her willingness to make lung-busting supporting runs down the right. When on the ball, she tends to eschew overplaying in the final third, preferring instead to head for the touchline and deliver crosses and cutbacks into the area. Mental fortitude is perhaps not one of her strengths, and question marks remain over Kagura's temperament and ability to stay calm under pressure.


6 • Yui NARITA
Central defender/defensive midfielder; 25; 40 caps; 2 goals

An elegant ball-playing central defender who is equally at home in midfield as she is in defence, Narita's main strength lies in her accurate distribution from defence. Comfortable under pressure, her distribution from deep within the defensive third is a potent weapon, especially against opposition seeking to press the team high up the pitch. Narita's ability to play in midfield also allows her to move forwards and give Riena an extra player in the middle of the park, which is always an option when the team finds itself struggling to maintain control against inferior opposition. Defensively, she can be quite vulnerable; a particular weakness is her lack of dominance in the air, which often leads to opposition attempting to target her ahead of her central defensive partner. However, her pace and progressive passing makes her an effective option in the heart of a back three, and she can fill in at the base of the midfield if necessary.


15 • Mana AMEMIYA
Central defender; 24; 73 caps; 2 goals

Amemiya is a solid, uncompromising option in central defence, usually playing the foil to more technically accomplished defenders alongside her. A robust, physically imposing defender, she is particularly strong in the air and in the tackle. While perhaps not as technically gifted as a typical Riennese player, Amemiya makes up for her technical shortcomings by adding a touch of grit and steel to complement her teammates' comparatively adventurous play. Another area in which she excels is in her instinctive reading of the game, often allowing her to be in the right place at the right time to snuff out opposition attacks at source. Amemiya can be a little slow off the mark, but she more than makes up for it with her excellent positional sense.


18 • Kano URUHA
Left-back/left wing-back/left winger; 23; 43 caps; 3 goals

A repurposed winger, Uruha is a pacy left-back whose marauding runs provide Riena with an attacking outlet down the left flank. Despite nominally being a defender, her natural attacking instincts mean that she is often effectively deployed as a wing-back, or an auxiliary winger, rather than a conventional defender. She possesses neither strength, height, or defensive nous, and has an unfortunate tendency to lose concentration when targeted. From an attacking perspective, Uruha is an accomplished dribbler who favours cutting infield with the ball to make space on the flank for her winger. Her finishing is above average for a defender, especially when she has the ball on her favoured left foot, and she is not averse to hitting speculative efforts from range.


28 • Hinata YUKIHANA
Right-back/right wing-back/central defender; 20; 21 caps; 2 goals

A versatile player capable of playing anywhere on the right side of the Riena defence, Yukihana is a steady and reliable defender with a maturity belying her tender years. While she is on the shorter side for a defender, Yukihana has the strength and athleticism to play as the right-sided central defender in a back three. From an attacking perspective, Yukihana is a willing runner, and will often bomb ahead to support the Riena attack when played in her favoured right-back position. She established herself as a very useful option in defence for Riena during her debut cycle, and will look to provide stiff competition for her fellow defenders. Expected to start in games where Riena might need defensive solidity on the right side of the pitch.


30 • Mao TSUKAMOTO
Central defender/right-back/defensive midfielder; 23; 58 caps; 4 goals

A no-nonsense defender with a surprising eye for a pass, Tsukamoto was once the bridesmaid to her flashy senior Narita, but a series of excellent performances during Riena's Baptism of Fire campaign propelled Tsukamoto to a spot as first-choice central defender alongside Mana Amemiya ahead of Narita. A strong, physical defender in the mould of her central defensive partner Amemiya, Tsukamoto, with her strength and well-built frame, provides more bulk and solidity to the Riena defence than the relatively lightweight Narita. She is a potent threat at set-pieces and is someone whom opposing defenders should keep an eye on whenever she ventures upfield to attack a dead ball.


5 • Hijiri SAKURANAMI
Central midfielder; 25; 59 caps; 2 goals; Mashu Hellownia (Hinodejin Empire)

Sakuranami is a powerful, tenacious wolfhound of a midfielder who is excellent at defending, pressing, and recycling possession. Originally a defensive anchor player, Sakuranami transitioned to a box-to-box role during Riena's BoF campaign, and has truly made the niche her own. From an attacking perspective, Sakuranami tends to arrive late in the area when Riena are on the attack, providing an additional offensive option for the team and potentially causing chaos in the opposition defence. She is not the most precise finisher in the team, but Sakuranami has a powerful shot on her, and will not hesitate to take aim from long range whenever given the chance to do so. While she has managed to improve her attacking game to fill the demands of her new role, Sakuranami remains adept at the defensive side of the game. There is nothing she enjoys more than a well-timed interception or a crunching tackle, and she is perhaps most infamous for her willingness to commit blatantly cynical challenges to break up play as necessary.


7 • Mishiro KAWAKAZE
Defensive midfielder/central midfielder; 23; 47 caps; 2 goals

A hard-running midfielder who is sometimes unfairly characterised as a water carrier or a jack-of-all-trades. Kawakaze's reputation for being a tenacious player who puts in the hard yards perhaps undersells her a little; she is a tough-tackling defensive midfielder who can do just about everything to a decent standard, including, somewhat surprisingly, putting the ball in the back of the net. While Riena do have specialists who can do specific aspects of Kawakaze's job better, the central midfielder is perhaps the best all-round player currently in the Riennese ranks. But at the same time, Kawakaze is also a victim of her own versatility, having thus far failed to nail down a starting spot ahead of her contemporaries. She may well mature to become part of Riena's first-choice midfield in time, but for now, expect to see her plugged in wherever a hole needs to be urgently filled.


8 • Tomoe ISHIBASHI
Central midfielder; 24; 41 caps; 3 goals

The playmaking metronome that keeps the team ticking over. Most of the team's build-up play goes through the languid, silky Ishibashi, who is accomplished at dictating play and controlling a game's tempo from midfield. Ishibashi's laid back style makes her a convenient target for accusations of laziness, but her undeniable ability in possession has helped her secure a spot in this Riena squad. Capable of a wide range of passing, whether it be simple square passes, fizzed crossfield attempts, or chipped through balls, Ishibashi has a keen eye for the defence-splitting pass, an attribute which dovetails well with the speed and attacking flair of Riena's forwards. Ishibashi tends to suffer from bouts of positional indiscipline, often drifting forwards into advanced positions as a game wears on. Her advanced presence can either leave yawning gaps in the midfield for savvy opponents to exploit, or allow Riena to overwhelm less tactically aware opposition. Likely to start or to be brought on whenever Riena needs a creative spark against opponents happy to sit deep and allow Riena to have the lion's share of the ball.


10 • Aya NAKIRI • Captain
Central midfielder/attacking midfielder/center forward; 23; 60 caps; 27 goals

Perhaps the most threatening weapon in Riena's armoury, and the player most likely to create a moment of magic out of nothing. Nakiri is nominally a central midfielder, but her play style means that she is often either dropping into the hole to link up midfield and attack, or playing off the center forward's shoulder. An unerring eye for goal, a penchant for direct and effective running, as well as an excellent range of passing, means that Nakiri poses a threat to the opposition goal whenever she is given time and space on the ball. Has a fondness for the spectacular; opportunistic efforts from outside the box are a particular favourite. Despite her attacking prowess, Nakiri can be marked out of a game by an attentive defender with the pace to keep up with her. Adept in the high energy pressing style favoured by Riena, she possesses a high work rate and good stamina, and when interchanging with her center forward, is often the first line of defence for the team. One potential weakness is her inability to dovetail well with her teammates in the team's preferred 4-3-3 formation. Manager Kanata Shiranami rejigged her midfield to accommodate her most naturally talented attacker, but Nakiri's presence, or lack thereof, in the heart of midfield still has the potential to cause severe balance issues for the team, and as a result she can be a tactical weak link that well-coached opponents may look to target.


12 • Sara KIRIMIYA
Defensive midfielder/central midfielder/central defender; 21; 60 caps; 3 goals

Kirimiya is an accomplished holding midfielder who understands that her job is to defend, and she does it exceptionally well. Although she is nominally a midfielder, she is perhaps the purest defensive player in this Riena roster. Kirimiya generally plays in a screening role in front of the defence, covering for her less-defensively inclined colleagues so that the they can focus on attacking the opposition third without worrying about leaving the team short at the back. As would be expected for a holding midfielder, Kirimiya has the positional intelligence and discipline necessary for her role, using those key attributes to break up play in midfield and quickly recycle possession to her more creative colleagues. While she is fairly decent at tackling, Kirimiya has a tendency to dive in when challenging for the ball, and has a particular preference for sliding tackles - a trait that a more unscrupulous opponent may look to exploit. Has developed a taste for booming long range rockets, though still more likely to find the stands than the back of the net.


22 • Meru MATSUKAI
Attacking midfielder/winger; 23; 54 caps; 6 goals

Matsukai is a mercurial, effervescent creative midfielder whose favoured position is in the hole, just behind her striker, but she is equally adept at playing wide out on both wings. A purer creative presence than Nakiri, she can be an option for Riena whenever they are playing against massed defences, but given Riena's abundance of attacking talent, Matsukai is generally regarded as an impact sub who can be deployed late on against flagging opponents to provide a spark for Riena. If playing on the wing, Matsukai favours cutting infield, narrowing the team's play, which can be problematic when Riena are up against a team who defend narrowly.


27 • Arisu MANO
Central midfielder; 20; 12 caps; 4 goals

Mano is an attacking-minded central midfielder who relies on her dribbling and turn of pace to break opposition lines. An energetic, enthusiastic presence in midfield, she differs from a typical Riennese midfielder in that she prefers to run with the ball and take on opposition defenders whenever afforded the opportunity to do so. Mano is very much untested on the multiversal stage, but she is expected to provide a unique tactical option off the bench. Has the potential to play an important role as an impact sub against massed defences.


9 • Rion KANZAKI
Center forward; 23; 65 caps; 26 goals; Pascal Mashu (Hinodejin Empire)

A powerful, dominant center forward, Kanzaki is the perfect foil for the technically talented attackers in the team. Kanzaki's physical presence in the opposition penalty area often causes chaos in the ranks of opposition defenders, allowing her teammates to profit in the resulting confusion. She is a highly accomplished target man who is in her element when scoring, whether it be sweeping loose balls home from close range or sending goalkeepers sprawling with thirty-yard rockets. While comfortable scoring goals on her own, Kanzaki is also proficient at holding the ball up when receiving possession from deep, which creates opportunities for her teammates to make supporting runs beyond her. Her natural athleticism, strength, and goalscoring instincts make Kanzaki an effective spearhead of the Riena attack.


17 • Flare STEINER
Right winger/center forward; 23; 59 caps; 22 goals

Steiner, one of Riena's key attacking outlets, is a technically skillful winger with a dizzying turn of pace that allows her to leave flat-footed opponents for dead. What she brings to the table is a repertoire of attacking skills that help her create an abundance of goalscoring opportunities for her teammates, not least her ability to put the ball on a plate for her teammates to score. Steiner is a proficient dribbler who enjoys nothing more than tying defenders into knots, and will attempt to trick her way right into the opposition area if given the chance to do so. She is a player for the big stage, and tends to turn in her best performances against superior opposition. Once viewed as a profligate finisher, Steiner has matured into a prolific goalscorer, and is now one of the deadlier forwards in the team from a shooting position. Can play as part of a front two alongside a physically dominant forward partner.


19 • Shizu SAMUKAWA
Center forward; 23; 21 caps; 7 goals

Recalled to the national team after a cycle spent in the wilderness, Samukawa is an athletic battering ram of a player who is not afraid to get into a physical tussle with her opponents. Like all good center forwards, she possesses the predatory instincts that make her a dab hand at finishing in front of goal, all the while having a decent turn of pace. Highly reliant on her physical attributes to dominate opposing defenders, Samukawa is always a useful target from dead ball situations, and can be deadly if given the time and space to operate inside the opposition six-yard box.


20 • Cocoa HANEDA
Left winger; 21; 50 caps; 17 goals

Formerly an untested winger from the Riennese youth development programme, Haneda was drafted into the senior squad as one of the programme's top prospects, but first-choice Tsumugi Suenaga's drop in form afforded her the opportunity to play her way into the starting XI. Defying all expectations, Haneda delivered a string of excellent performances as her goals and assists propelled Riena to third place in their WCQ group, and as a result she has firmly entrenched herself as manager Kanata Shiranami's first choice out on the left wing. A direct, hard-running winger with explosive pace and a sweet left foot, Haneda has a slight frame, but makes up for her physical shortcomings with a composure and presence of mind belying her years, attributes that play well with her penchant for penetrating running and clinical finishing. A quiet player who lets her football do the talking.


21 • Rinze AYANAMI
Right winger; 22; 33 caps; 9 goals

Similarly to Haneda, Ayanami received her senior call-up by virtue of being one of the most promising talents in the Riennese youth development programme. She did not rise to prominence in the same way Haneda did, mainly because of Flare Steiner's consistently excellent displays on the right wing, but Ayanami was afforded valuable game time throughout WCQ85 as part of the team's rotation policy, and she is widely considered to have the footballing chops to develop into a strong contender for a starting spot in the cycles to come. In terms of playing style, Ayanami is a creative winger who is more of a playmaker out on the flank rather than an attacking outlet. She possesses the physical attributes to thrive as an orthodox winger, but she prefers to set up her teammates rather than go for goal herself. Ayanami remains the second choice right winger behind Steiner for this cycle, but she has firmly established herself as a valuable squad option, and will provide stiff competition for the incumbent.


26 • Hareru MIYANO
Left winger/right winger; 19; 12 caps; 2 goals

An inverted winger typically playing on the left, Miyano is a technical player with a repertoire of dribbling skills under her belt and the pace to match. However, her youth means that she is still a raw diamond, and she struggles to perform consistently at a high level, with a lack of end product a particular weakness. Despite her many obvious shortcomings, Miyano's selection in this Riena squad represents an opportunity for her to develop and make an impression on the coaching staff. She is unlikely to be thrown into the deep end for this cycle, but will be given playing time whenever the situation allows to aid her development and integration into the team.


KS • Kanata SHIRANAMI
Manager; 27; 36 wins, 18 draws, 23 losses; 172 GF 130 GA; +42 GD

Just one cycle ago, Kanata Shiranami was the flavour of the month, an innovative technocrat of a manager who, despite her relative inexperience, looked well on her way to becoming Riena's most successful manager in a generation. Leading a squad of young, hopelessly callow players sourced from the Riena FA's elite talent development programme, Shiranami espoused a brand of vertical attacking football focused on moving the ball through the lines at pace, and quickly turned Riena into one of the more watchable teams in their Baptism of Fire. Under her guidance, Riena managed to eke out a fourth-placed finish in the BoF, losing to the eventual champions Mavinet on penalties in the semifinals before tasting defeat in the third-place playoff against Tequilo. But Riena's strong performance at the Baptism was only a taster of what was to come in the World Cup. Drawn into a relatively strong Group 14, Shiranami led her unfancied team to an improbable charge for qualification, sending even the most pessimistic Riennese fans into raptures with a string of positive results against storied footballing names such as Newmanistan and Krytenia. The crowning moment of Shiranami's debut cycle came on the penultimate matchday of WC85 qualifying, when her Riena side comprehensively defeated Vilita, the multiverse's finest team, by three goals to nil, an achievement only slightly undercut by Qasden gaining a point on the same matchday to qualify at the expense of the Wavelets. Under Shiranami's astute stewardship, Riena went unbeaten throughout the group stages of CoH 77, before being eliminated by Kandorith in the first knockout stage.

Shiranami's record in the subsequent Campionato Esportiva, however, was less than stellar. Playing on home soil as the hosts of CE 27, Riena were amongst the first teams to be eliminated in the group stages after successive defeats to Vdara and Ancherion in their first two matches, the latter loss in particular casting a harsh light on the team's defensive inadequacies. Riena continued their patchy form in qualifying for the subsequent World Cup - in particular struggling mightily to put points on the board against lower-ranked teams, and it came as no surprise to observers when the team found themselves out of contention for qualification with several games to spare. Riena's subsequent outing in CoH 78 was similarly disastrous, as a spate of key injuries in defence sent Shiranami scrambling to rejig her team. Her efforts were in vain - Riena picked up just seven points from six games, crashing out ignominiously in the group stages.

Mortified by Riena's inexplicable failings, the RFA launched a comprehensive inquest into the team's underperforming campaigns over the course of the cycle, which led to Shiranami's charges skipping the Campionato Esportiva in South Newlandia. The inquest was widely expected to end in Shiranami's termination, alongside a large-scale cull of her players - but the RFA ended up sticking to their guns despite huge public pressure, giving the manager a third cycle to prove herself in the hot seat. No longer able to plead inexperience after three years in the job, Shiranami must pick up the pieces of her calamitous second cycle and show the multiverse that she is not just a one-cycle wonder.


NT • Nao TOMORI
Assistant manager; 26


Overview
Riena will tend to set up in a highly fluid 4-3-3/4-2-3-1 formation, but they are also adept at playing 3-4-3 and 3-5-2 when the situation necessitates it, primarily against technically superior opposition in which Riena are expected to have less of the ball. The team can and will rapidly transition between different formations when necessary, and Riena's players will, in general, be given freedom to roam from their assigned position as well as exchange positions with other players. The team's physical shortcomings means they will tend to play the ball short on the ground rather than looking to go long when in possession - a notable exception is in the final third, where the comparatively more physical forwards provide a useful focal point for crosses. In attack, the team will look to move the ball vertically at speed, but will also be content to patiently probe the opposition defence if there are no immediate openings. Riena is particularly reliant on their wingers in attack, and if the opposition manages to stifle Riena's wing play, they will inevitably be muzzled as an attacking threat. In defence, Riena uses a high defensive line and will try to make use of offside traps. Zonal marking is preferred at corners and free kicks.

Stadia
The Riena national team play their football matches at the Wavelet Arena, in the capital city of Nagato. The pitch dimensions are short, but wide, by multiversal standards for football pitches, facilitating wider play on the flanks. The pitch itself is usually well-watered and slick, allowing the ball to travel at speed across the natural grass surface. For teams who prefer a spot of beach football, Riena's original national sport, Riena maintains the Radiant Sands Arena, also in Nagato, with the same pitch dimensions as the Wavelet Arena, but with a sand surface instead. Riena will usually default to the Wavelet Arena, but opponents are free to specify a stadium preference if they wish to do so.

Set-piece assignments

The following set piece assignments are listed in order of priority. Positions are indicated relative to the opposition goal. Central free kicks can be taken by players assigned to either left or right sided free kicks.

The Autorité Nationale des Sports of the Republic of Thibea
For the first time since WC81, the ANS has renewed the Ligue's national team and will have a presence in the World Cup qualifiers once more, still led at the helm by the prior manager, Maurice Bonhomme who is retaining most of this old staff, a move that is likely an attempt by Bonhomme to ensure that his players who are all relatively inexperienced on the international stage have a strong leadership core that can help them establish a foundation on which to build.

Most of the Warlocks of the last generation are thoroughly gone, either retired from the Ligue or too old to receive an invitation, of the '81 Warlocks, only Chevalier, Delafosse, and Blanc remain which explains the later being named captain of this squad. Gainsbourg and Gérin-Lajoie both also have prior caps but most of their playing time came as substitutes and rarely consistently started, so for the most part the entirety are debutants in their own right. Tactics have been changed and a much more balanced 4-3-3 seems to have been adopted for this go-through, though interestingly enough the back four will be all true fullbacks instead of the outer two playing wide as a quasi-wingback, though whether that changes throughout the course of the qualifying campaign remains to be seen; Blanc especially will be one to keep an eye out, her speed, agility and precision are textbook fits for the classic Thibaean wingback, so it's possible that Bonhomme might play her more outside of a traditional fullback role, or perhaps her selection will mean she's playing as her natural role whereas when Bonhomme wants your typical strong back he will swap her out for Favreau or Colbert.

On the offensive side of the ball, I think the thing that will make-or-break the Warlocks will be how well their midline performs, and if they're capable at being adaptive and quickly switching between offense or defense, the latter will be the primary concern I believe as Babin and de'Verely are both well established as offensive-minded midfielders but are not very well known for their defense. The latter in particular has developed quite a bit of a negative connotation in that area of expertise during his last four seasons with Peyrelade, but he is their third best scorer and they've won the Ligue three titles in the last five so he could fit right in. I could easily see Gérin-Lajoie or Babin switched consistently with a different selection from the reserves, Bonhomme has carefully selected a very capable mix of mostly higher performing Tier 2 players, with a few bright sparks from Tier 1 mixed in for reinforcement and further options.

Tactics

Image
Empress Masumi Stadium at night

The Kandorese team is looking to play a more aggressive football and rely a lot on quick, successive passes and counters. But, when in doubt the team will hold back to eventually mount a mass assault from the midfield positions. The midfield is the most important terrain for this team; this is where the most important and strongest players control the entire play. The strikers for Kandorith are something different, the team has no traditional style strikers but rather extremely fast and pacey runners; who will take their opportunity to run at the goal at any chance they get; while the midfield will close down the area behind them to ensure the team's dominance on the opponent's half.

The midfield is not only the engine behind the team, but also very capable at scoring goals. The strikers are mostly wingers and runners who are supported by a capable and pacey midfielders who all have a talent for finishing. In defense the Kandorese team is cautious and pressure absorbing. The entire team will do their very best to tire out opponents and strike when they are off-balanced with quick and long passes the Kandorese defense can switch to a full-out offense and get the ball in the opponent's half within two passes. Unlike many teams, this team does not have a set formation but more a guideline in what their responsibilities are. According to the philosophy of Kandorese football winning is the responsibility of the entire team, therefore the entire team should be able to play in complete synergy with the rest.

The home stadium for the Kandorese National Team is the Empress Masumi National Stadium, named after the current Empress in honour of her coronation. The rather new stadium is designed as a multi-purpose sports complex with the possibility of completely changing the venue's layout for almost any sport. When the stadium is not used for sports the large complex is used to host concerts, large events and even traditional markets. The Stadium is the home of the Kandorese first division team FC Tenkyo who are one of the "big four" teams of the nation. With a total capacity during football matches of 90,000 attendants the stadium is a symbol for a new era of the Kandorese nation and its people.

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)

Aikiki’s partnership with Mungwaii helped boost Strike back to the top of the Vilitan League earning trophies in the Tropical Trophy, Vilitan Cup and ultimately the Vilitan Stellar Division.

Freechi's Roster to the World Cup 87!

The Freechi Football Confederation


History:
The Freechi Team was founded in 2000 by Sandrose I, but never joined any international or even domestic tournament until the government of Sandrose II, the actual emperor. The Freechi Football Confederation (FFC) is directly linked and administrated from the Sandrose II Palace. The President and Emperor chooses and adminstrate all the staff in the FFC, choosing from the Executive Staff to the Gandula (ball boy).

The team is actually being managed by Sofiya Kuznetsova and achieved the third position in the Baptism of Fire (and Ice) 74. Kuznetsova adopts an extremely tactical gameplay, and is highly praised by the most fanatical soccer fans in Freechi. Highlighted players of the team is the prolific-goal-scorer-duo Kondo Achebe and Jengo Solarin, along with the skilled goalkeeper Nel Patenaude. Nel provided magnificent moments to Freechian fans, with a superb performance in penalties defenses on the last BoF tournament.

Formation:
4-4-2 Diamond

Style Modifier:
-1

Coach:
Sofiya Kuznetsova — a famous football coach in the Freechi Football National League (FFNL) — is a veteran coach, with a not-so-defensive playstile. Chosen by the emperor himself, as the country's Football Confederation is directly runned by him.

Stadium:
Freechi will held matches at the Nadoia Stadium, located at Freechi's capital. The arena is characterized by its modernist architecture, with many Freechians calling it the "Spaceship Stadium". The stadium can support only 40,000 fans with a nice infrastucture (elevators, parking lots and a Luxury box).

Freechi's capital, Makiny, is the most important city since the foundation, preserving the most memorable events of the Freechian history. Being a huge city, it encompasses many different sectors of the Freechian life, and recently received federal investments to the creation of a Sports Complex, determined by law. This complex is located in the mid-term between the heavy-machinery industrial areas and more commercial zones.

South Newlandian Roster for the 87th World Cup Qualifiers (in time)

The Elephants make another return, this time as the 63rd-ranked team, just enough for pot three. Naturally, that is about the range where a nation can reasonably attempt to qualify, and while the Elephants are bringing most of their core players back, there are no real expectations for making the finals this time. Of course, that doesn’t mean that the team won’t try to.


Choose my lineup: Please use my starting line-up I release ahead of the game, but its fine if you don't want to. Substitutions are no problem. If I do not post one, you can use the most recent one or do whatever. I am mostly reachable on discord and TG, if you want to know anything, I’m always happy to help

Complete squad for South Newlandia

Coaching team

Head Coach: Robert Wolverine (47) (has coached 64 WCC-games)
Assistant Coach: Todd Ingolffson (63)
Goalkeeper Coach: Matthias Boyle (43)
Athletic Coach: Josef Salazar (28)
Wolverine has coached this team from the very beginning, and he is bringing the old reliable 4-4-2 diamond back. Both Boyle and Salazar are entering their third qualifying campaign as well, but Ingolffson has only joined since a year, replacing Michael White, now head coach in Kohnhead.

Depth chart:
Image

Starters:
GK: Mikhail Trischuk (29 years old) (58 matches played, 76 conceded goals, 0 assists) Libertas Bergheim (Savojarna) CAPTAIN
Mikhail Trischuk is the captain of the team, and he is one of the most important reasons the team is where they are today. His numerous saves have helped the team countless times, and his abilities as a captain are also in high regard. At 29, his career might already be past its peak, but there is no reason why he shouldn’t be playing for a few more years at least. On good days, he can frustrate entire offenses, on bad ones; he might take four or five goals. He moved to Libertas Bergheim from the Rhinos a season ago, and has established himself in one of the top goalkeepers in one of the best leagues of the multiverse.

LB: Dhruv Roy (27 years old) (56 matches played, 6 scored goals, 7 assists) Urrheddiao (Chromatika)
Dhruv Roy can often be found in the opponents half. Especially after corners, his heading abilities can be dangerous. His long passes are also strong, but when it comes to pure defending against strong opponents, he isn’t as useful. He is the tallest among the field players, and his stays in the opponent’s box sometimes make the team vulnerable to counter-attacks. There is no real fight over the position, so Roy enjoys plenty of starts; but that might change with Nguyen joining the team. Roy played a strong season in Chromatika, and is at the peak of his career.

LCB: Tommy Anderson (25 years old) (49 matches played, 0 scored goals, 2 assists) Couziers-Olympiques (Ko-oren)
Tommy Anderson has been part of the squad since the Baptism of Fire, and bounced back and forth between the first eleven and the bench. He absolutely is a pure defender, rarely sighted in the opponents half. Anderson profited off Schroeder’s injury to get a lot of minutes in the qualifiers for World Cup 86, and has taken his spot since. He moved to Ko-oren last season to establish himself further.

RCB: Mike Sloah (25 years old) (9 matches played, 0 scored goals, 0 assists) Ituraitz FC (Astograth)
Sloah is one of the less experienced members of the national team, but a move to Astograth has really sparked his career. He proved himself as a very solid defender with a great eye for the game, able to spot things practically before they happen. He was only really discovered as a big talent late in his career after kicking the ball in the second tier of South Newlandia for a few years, and he’s looking to make up for that now.

RB: Filip Barker (25 years old) (0 matches played) Cranequin Wanderers (Nephara)
Barker has been the big surprise Wolverine had in store for us. After bouncing around the multiverse for a few years, he had a breakout season in Tikariot for Ysgrann Bay. Despite them going down, he landed a new job in one of the most prestigious league systems of the multiverse, and probably of all time, in joining the Cranequin Wanderers. Barker, who has never started in a match for the Elephants except for a few games at the recent Campionato Esportiva, will be starting at his position right away. In Tikariot, he established himself as a good player, able to hold his side well, even though he has had some problems with red cards on occasions.

DM: Kevin Mohamed (23 years old) (54 matches played, 2 scored goals, 3 assists) Nagelti Rovers (Jeckland)
Kevin Mohamed is the player in Defensive Midfield for the team. While he isn’t the strongest player on the position, South Newlandia lacks viable alternatives. He is a solid defender, but he isn’t great at developing and starting plays for the offense, often slowing things down. At twenty-three years old, he also still has a lot to learn, and is currently doing that in Jeckland. Wolverine was quite lucky to find Mohamed, considering his club and the affiliated country are currently nowhere to be found.

LM: Corban Green (22 years old) (43 matches played, 2 scored goal, 17 assists) Jecken Newport (South Newlandia) CORNERS
Corban Green remains one of the younger players on the team, but his lack of experience is made up with fantastic amounts of talent. His shot isn’t as dangerous, while his flanks and corners are among the strongest ones in the country. Due to problems with his knee, he frequently missed games, but he seems to be fit right now. Hopefully, he can stay healthy, but every light touch to his leg might side-line him for months. Recently, he hasn’t gotten the results he wanted, but he might be able to bounce back, even with two bench players eyeing his position.

RM: Patrick McMora (25 years old) (62 matches played, 7 scored goals, 16 assists) Walstreim Lions (South Newlandia)
Patrick McMora is the player with the most matches for South Newlandia, having missed only two games. His passes and flanks can be deadly, and while he doesn’t score a lot of goals, he is capable of doing that too. He is one of the players that might be the captain eventually, and he will assume the role of vice-captain again. The proud Walstreim Lion has helped the team a ton during its early days, and remains a valuable starter for them.

OM: Finnley Wallis (28 years old) (55 matches played, 17 scored goals, 11 assists) Taeshan City Miners (South Newlandia) FREE KICKS
Finnley Wallis is one of the most important players of the team. Depending on the situation, he can act as a third striker or even help out in defense. He debuted in the Baptism of Fire, and he is also responsible for free kicks. At 28 years, Wallis is well in his strongest years, and needs to be defended well. After a decade with the Royals, he moved to play in Taeshan, and had a solid, but barely noteworthy season there. In a league ranked as high as the Taeshan Premier League, that is more than enough to return to the starting job for the Elephants.

ST: Bjorn Cohen (22 years old) (26 matches played, 8 scored goals, 4 assists) Jecken Newport (South Newlandia)
Cohen is another of those frequently injured players, but he is a fantastic prospect when he’s fit. That’s rarely enough, but at the moment, both legs seem to be fine. He has proved that with three goals in the recent Cup of Harmony, and a strong season with Jecken got him the starting job at the beginning of these Qualifiers.

ST: Simon McCabe (32 years old) (40 matches played, 15 scored goals, 5 assists) Folte (Graintfjall) PENALTYS
At 32 years old, he may already be past his strongest days, but he is a force to be dealt with. He still has a fantastic strong shot and a good read on goalkeepers, but his age sometimes leads him to being too slow or making some easier mistakes now and then. Everyone thought he was on the way out, but he fought back with a great season at his new club, Folte. This position will likely see a lot of rotation, with four strikers that all play roughly on the same level.

Substitutes:

GK: Rufus Rigby (22 years old) (7 matches played, 8 conceded goals, 0 assists) Barnley FC (Kohnhead)
Rufus Rigby usually is the main replacement for Mikhail Trischuk. He debuted in the Baptism of Fire, and experience is the only thing separating him from Trischuk. He had some chances to prove himself recently, like in the Campionato Esportiva, but he will be back to the bench for now because the results weren’t exactly ideal, and Trischuk is a very capable goalkeeper. He finally moved on from the Guards and will join the Kohnheadian team Barnley FC, where Brandon Irving also plays.

LB: Archer Nguyen (21 years old) (0 matches played) Ancarea FC (Tikariot)
Nguyen also joins the squad for the first time, having played a really solid season in Tikariot for Ancarea FC. The smart and talented defender is eyeing up Roy’s spot, and he may indeed be a viable alternative.

CB: Philip Gurero (25 years old) (21 matches played, 2 goals, 2 assists) Nickelson FC (Kohnhead)
Gurero is another skilled defender, providing flexibility for the Elephants. Very good results in Kohnhead have brought him into the roster for the qualifiers again, but he has been placed on the bench for now. He is dangerous with headers, and shouldn’t be underestimated, but his relative inexperience is a weakness for him.

CB: Andre Hall (21 years old) (0 matches played) Ratzupalfu Rhinos, (South Newlandia)
Hall is the fourth option for his position, but he is mainly brought to learn some things. The young, modern defender can also spark ideas on offense, if he needs to, but his relatively small size are a big weakness. The Rhino had been rumoured to leave his team in the off-season, but remained with Ratzupalfu for now.

RB: Gustafe Wright (30 years old) (27 match played, 0 scored goals, 2 assists) GCCFC (Northwest Kalactin)
Robert Wolverine likes using experienced and pure defenders, and Wright is both at once. The man now playing in Northwest Kalactin, where he delivered a solid season, was quite disappointed to get benched for Barker, and will fight back for his spot.

DM: Jakob Walter (26 years old) (0 matches played) Birmingham United FC (Murphtannia)
Walter had a phenomenal season for Birmingham United in Murphtannia, excelling in tackles and assists, and has gotten him called up to a position South Newlandia historically has looked weak on. At 26, he is very late on his first call-up after years of being average for the Guards.

LM: Donald Lancaster (22 years old) (32 matches played, 2 scored goals, 3 assists) Walstreim Lions (South Newlandia)
Donald Lancaster is one of the players that already played for the Elephants during the Baptism of Fire, has been the main replacement for Corban Green since about forever. He will have to fight to get past Green, but after two good seasons for the Lions, he might be closer than ever.

RM: Marcus Young (21 years old) (5 matches played, 0 scored goals, 0 assists) Ratzupalfu FC (Farfadillis)
Young has made a massive jump with a move to Avenida Leal in Farfadillis, and has earned himself a spot in the qualifiers as well. At 21, he might be the future on his position for the Elephants.

OM: Abdurahman Bishop (24 years old) (30 matches played, 3 scored goals, 3 assists) Jecken Newport (South Newlandia)
Abdurahman Bishop joined the team for the World Cup Qualifiers 85, and he fought with Finnley Wallis for the start in offensive midfield. Wallis won. The 23 year old is still lacking experience, but he may be a solid alternative to Finnley Wallis. He is definitely the second option for the position, and will probably surpass Wallis eventually, just not now. Currently, he is often subbed in as an offensive alternative.

ST: Michael Glossman (27 years old) (19 matches played, 2 scored goals, 1 assists) Admiral Storevik (Savojarna)
Glossman really needs to get it together. He has had a bad Cup of Harmony, and comes off two bad seasons with Kinjestad Soccer, who sold him to the Vilhardy Owls, where he racked up as many red cards as goals. He’s lucky he’s made the roster at all, and has to hope that he can get back on track. Maybe a move to Savojarna can help.

ST: Brandon Irving (24 years old) (57 matches played, 24 scored goals, 11 assists) Barnley FC (Kohnhead)
Brandon Irving was already part of the squad during the Baptism of Fire, and leads the team in goals at 24 scored goals. Despite his talent, he is largely inconsistent. If he plays well, Irving is hard to stop, and the best player in the squad, and is the shooting star of the team; he has played many legendary games. He played an average season with Barnley, and finds himself on the bench after some small muscular problems.

GK: Jason Ortega (23 years old) (0 matches played) ISC Catalan City (Xanneria)
Ortega will be the third goalkeeper for South Newlandia. He has been playing in Xanneria, an environment rough for goalkeepers, and proved himself enough to join the roster. South Newlandia never used their third goalkeeper in any competition yet, but you never know.

South Newlandian venues:

Elephant Dome (21.500 seats)
Elephant Valley, just a bit away from the western coast of South Newlandia, is not only the capital, but also the economic and cultural heart of South Newlandia. The Elephant Dome is the biggest stadium, home of the Elephant Valley FC, and will host three of the games. The stadium is right in the middle of the Elephant Valley, and seats a bit over 20 thousand people. There was a legendary game with nine goals here, and everyone in attendance remembers it to this day. The opening and closing matches will be held here, namely the matches against Pasarga (MD2), against Hampton Island (MD10) and against Tumbra (MD18)

Jecken Arena (16,250) Newport, Northeast
It is unusual for stadiums to be sponsored in South Newlandia, but the stadium of Newport, right on the East Coast of South Newlandia, is sponsored by a well-known foreign food company from Jeckland. Currently, that nation seems to have temporarily vanished, but the company paid for the naming rights in advance. The stadium is the second-biggest in South Newlandia, and the home of Jecken Newport is commonly used for friendly matches. The Elephants will play Valladares (MD4) and The Gothanita Isles (MD16) here.

Walstreim City Stadium (15,000) Walstreim, Southeast
Walstreim, located at the South coast, became widely known with the success of their club team, the Walstreim Lions. Otherwise, the city is not particularly interesting, but it used to be very industrial. The Walstreim City Stadium has been upgraded for the occasion, as it used to hold only 13,000 people. This upgrade makes it the fourth-biggest in the nation. The Elephants face Garifunya (MD12) and Bluecliff (MD14) here.

Kinetik Stadium (13,500) Elephant Island, Elephant Area
The Elephant Island is a small island just off of the coast of Elephant Valley, and it was never really relevant. At least not until the well-known energy drink brand from The Grearish Union, Kinetik, bought the Elephant Islanders (now Kinetik Islanders) and built them a top-notch modern stadium with everything you could possibly want. It is very close to the sea, so this stadium always looks fantastic on photos. South Newlandia will play against Regmotto (MD6) and U-Koro (MD8) here.

World Cup 87 Roster
Zeta Reka is returning again after a modest World Cup cycle and coming off of a historic regional championship performance. Head Coach Marko Dusan is in a do or die situation this time around, qualify or resign. Their form in the last qualification campaign was worse in World Cup 85’s solid third place showing. Coach Dusan set up his men in an ever flowing yet sturdy 3-5-2 formation. Every Rekan will need to be at the top of their game. The national team roster has been reshuffled, old and new faces lining up for the Football Federation’s 23 man photo shot. Plus there’s over fifteen reserve players who could add depth, or at least warm bodies, to the Rekan lineup.

Wukowić returns to the forefront, competing still with Dejan Wasić for the main job, though we expect Wukowić to start the lion’s share of matches this cycle. If either players falter too badly, Werisokić waits in the wings, one of the Rekan league’s best goalies. “We’re not making it a secret that there’s competition” goalkeeping coach Wolfgang Marcellić said in an interview with the Aleiusia Star newspaper. Marcellić added that “We have a lot of depth in goal, for a country our size. These guys have had some odd performances, but I trust them all.”

Center backs are some of the finest players in Zeta Reka for the past few years. Team captain Bartolomej Wladmirowić plays at the highest level in Audioslavia’s pyramid. He’s a real locker room leader for the national team, famous at home, and perhaps abroad. Wald Wlad is coming off a solid season in Teqilo, a testing league. Damjan Protić is a raw physical specimen of a man who’s also large and in charge. This tricky trio will be a challenge for many teams, and the backups are not slouches. National team mainstays Janko Yakowić and Wladmir Bogdnić have been around since the Campionato Esportiva and Baptism of Fire. Tito Jankoslawić is a more unproven commodity, only capped five times, but he’s apparently “Titoing” along in Chromatika. Expect Wlad Wald down the center, while Wladmirowić will look to make technical passes in build up, and Protić looms waiting for a chance to blow up opposing positions.

05: Zaur Luka-Igorić — 21 yo — 177 — Left — 16 caps — 1 goal, 4 assists — Ogroven Vanguardi FK
07: Jad — 28 yo — 184 — Left/Right — 66 caps — 4 goals, 15 assists — Aleiusia Capital

16: Hermann Hampe — 24 yo — 178 ⅔ — Left/Right — 8 caps — 0 goals, 1 assist — Aleiusia Capital
18: Yuri Kewić — 25 yo — 172 ⅓ — Right — 8 caps — 0 goals, 1 assist — DD Porto Nowi
Providing width, top prospect Zaur Luka-Igorić and Jad will be getting another set of workouts this cycle. Igorić has a long road ahead of him, but Jad is on his peak. Luckily for the older wingback, Jad’s corners are truly world class. When your team is 76th in the world, a secret weapon is a huge asset. Of course, the secret has been out ever since Jad scored a 90th minute game winner in the last Campionato Esportiva. Defensive duties are not skimped on for these players, but so far no one has given them major praise in that department.

06: Stani Gröss — 26 yo — 174 — Defensive — 45 caps — 0 goals, 4 assists — 1830 Cathair (Audioslavia)
11: Želmir Kolarowić (vice cpt.) — 30 yo — 190 — Central/Attacking — 68 caps — 19 goals, 20 assists — Kven FK

17: Nikola Branić — 22 yo — 169 ½ — Defensive — 9 caps — 0 goals, 0 assists — DD Porto Nowi
21: Stanimir Rekawić — 22 yo — 174 — Central — 20 caps — 1 goal, 3 assists — AK Stanimir
22: Denis Silvester — 26 yo — 182 ⅔ — Central — 12 caps — 0 goals, 3 assists — Platinastigrade
23: Anpele Zork — 29 yo — 182 ¾ — Central/Attacking — 4 caps — 0 goals, 0 assists — Langmere Green Rovers (Flavovespia)
The midfield trio is very youthful this time around. Former captain Rybki retired from the squad after the Campionato Esportiva, and former stater Mullow Dorboslawić had a poor season in the league, and with his age might not be in the rotation anymore. Stani Gröss, from the world famous 1830 Cathair plays low in this side, marking dangerous enemies, and destroying enemy development with speed and skill. Nikola Branić was selected as the backup, a young deep lying player who’s also quick like Gröss, but with less senior experience. In front of the defensive midfielder are two players, usually Rekawić and Kolarowić. Kolarowić, a veteran player, is a strong attacking option who will usually try to play further along than the more well rounded Rekawić. Of course, Rekawić can attack as well. The subs for these two players are Denis Silvester and Anpele Zork. Silvester has been in and out of the national team, quietly aiding development in his games. Zork is a late bloomer for the national team, and a national champion in Flavovespia.

08: Arnald Gal — 22 yo — 177 ½ — 24 caps — 10 goals, 1 assist — DD Porto Nowi
09: Bogdan Rawić — 23 yo — 166 ¼ — 52 caps — 35 goals, 0 assists — Lokomotive Jarnstard (Savojarna)

18: Stojan Heiden — 26 yo — 162 ¾ — 40 caps — 8 goals, 3 assists — AK Stanimir
20: Miloš Simeoniwić — 26 yo — 178 — 55 caps — 5 goals, 4 assists — Northern Stallions (Brenecia)

The attack of Zeta Reka again see Bogdan Rawić at the forefront. The diminutive Rawić looks to dart past the opposition, scoring a nw slate of goals. Rawić was not selected for the Campionato Esportiva, allowing Arnald Gal and Stojan Heiden to solidify their space in the team. Gal is another young attacker, who’s already productive and looking to improve. Heiden started for the team as a winger, but is too lightweight for a defensive wingback role. Heiden is a striker in the club game, so a change of pace at the international level was acceptable. Miloš Simeoniwić is a bit out of position, but on the wing has been know for good central strikes. The front tow are the first line of defense, which could be troublesome for Rawić.

25: Branislaw Mucić — GK — 20 yo — 184 ½ —1 cap — 0 goals, 0 assists — VZRH Matov-Uri

The Euran Football Association’s World Cup 87 Qualifying Squad

OOC note: To help my international and domestic calendars align more closely, I will now RP on assumption that qualifying is split over two years between each World Cup, rather than just the second year of two years between each World Cup. Therefore the first half of World Cup 87 qualifying will happen after Copa Rushmori 36 (in the winter) and alongside Euraleague Season 46, with the same manager/player ages as both. The second half of qualifying will happen alongside Euraleague Season 47, with the World Cup happening in the summer after that season.

Manager: Lee Sharp (70, Eura)

Assistant Manager: Tom Riley (63, Eura)

Styles and Permission

Style Modifier: +2

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

Choose my goalscorers – YES
Godmod scoring events – YES
RP injuries to my players – YES
Godmod injuries to my players – YES (But only how the injury happens, not the extent of the injury)
Hand out yellow cards to my players – YES
Hand out red cards to my players – YES
Godmod other events – YES, provided you keep events within the realms of realism, so no deaths etc.

Please note that I am not participating in or recognising any kind of pandemic themed RP at this time. You are welcome to RP a pandemic impacting your own country or national team as you wish, but please do not extend this to my team or country.

30 man squad

Shirt number – name – position – age – international caps – international goals - club
Stats up to date to end of CR 86. Clubs are only up to date to S45, and so may have changed by the time of WC87 qualifying.


Goalkeepers

1 - Kevin Belgrave - GK - 34 – 99 caps – Directus
13 – Vance Simm – GK – 25 – 9 caps - Lajuno
30 – Ethan Fleming – GK – 31 – 1 cap - Unioneers

Reserves
Mick Key – GK – 23 – 0 caps - Blacklake Blues (Taeshan)
Clarence Webb – GK – 24 – 0 caps – Bastion
John Hewitt – GK – 21 – 0 caps – Farrenton Athletic
Elliot Palmer – GK – 25 – 0 caps – Usmer

Ryan Bull is out of the reckoning internationally after his poor performances during the last World Cup campaign and Ethan Fleming earned an overdue call up for the last Copa Rushmori. Clarence Webb comes into the reserve pool.

Defenders

2 – Alma Watts (F) – RB – 28 – 7 caps – 0 goals - Soldarian FC (Valanora)
3 – Lucy Almwood (F) - LB - 24 – 13 caps – 1 goal - Brinemouth (Nephara)
4 – Jack Menard - CB – 22 – 19 caps – 0 goals - 1830 Cathair (Audioslavia)
5 – Dean Steele – CB – 29 – 78 caps – 2 goals - Brinemouth (Nephara)
15 – Charles Roberts - CB – 32 – 134 caps – 6 goals - Bastion
19 – Alex Coles – CB – 24 – 1 cap – 0 goals – Oakstone
21 – Stanley Burns – LB – 28 – 93 caps – 3 goals - Holdenberg
23 – Harry Wheeler – RB – 25 – 0 caps – 0 goals – Oakstone
25 – Jamie Byrd – CB – 22 - 0 caps – 0 goals – Bastion
27 – Reece Lucas – LB – 30 – 4 caps – 0 goals – Sabrefell Athletic (Nephara)

Pool
Tom Wellington – CB – 25 – 1 cap – 0 goals – Hellinic Rouge (Pasarga)
Steve Fox – RB – 31 – 40 caps – 0 goals – Sabrefell Athletic (Nephara)
Alex Ingram – LB – 26 – 15 caps – 0 goals – Spartangrad
Jarrod Jenkins – CB – 28 – 8 caps – 0 goals – Falourr
Jake Newton – CB – 30 – 18 caps – 1 goal – Baskita FC (Pasarga)
Jane Hallam (F) - RB - 22 – 0 caps – 0 goals – Holdenberg
Jayden Fox – LB – 31 – 21 caps – 0 goals – Hornchurch
James Lord – LB – 32 – 8 caps – 0 goals – Ulsa
Lucian Fontaine – RB – 22 – 0 caps – 0 goals – Falourr
Scott Quinn – LB - 29 – 0 caps – 0 goals – Falourr
Simon Prutton – LB – 28 – 0 caps – 0 goals – Marketville
Tanya Green (F) – CB – 25 – 0 caps – 0 goals – Revolutionaries
Eve Reeve (F) – LB – 24 – 0 caps – 0 goals – Rockridge Phoenix (Brenecia)
Trent Owen – RB – 29 – 0 caps – 0 goals – Gladerial United (Valanora)
Silas Duff – CB – 19 – 0 caps – 0 goals – Lajuno
Robert Freeman – LB – 20 – 0 caps – 0 goals – Bastion
Kevin Sherwood – CB – 20 – 0 caps – 0 goals – Carsby
Harold Knight – CB – 28 – 0 caps – 0 goals – Unioneers
Ana Mason – RWB – 20 – 0 caps – 0 goals – Unioneers

Lee Sharp has already shaken things up at the back. Scott Coles has retired; it is Alma Watts who seizes the starting spot rather than Steve Fox. Following the last Copa, Fox drops out of the squad altogether in favour of Harry Wheeler. Lucy Almwood, the most talented of Eura’s defenders, looks assured but is constantly under pressure from the experienced Stanley Burns to regain his starting spot. 1830 Cathair’s diamond in the rough Jack Menard has now cemented his place at the back ahead of the veteran Charles Roberts. Alex Coles has managed to stick around in the squad, but for now Tom Wellington is out for Jamie Byrd. Reece Lucas remains in the side with many competitors behind him.

Midfielders

6 – Monica Rowland (F) - CM - 32 - 103 caps – 9 goals – Bastion
7 – Moira Woakes (F) – AM – 29 – 106 caps – 44 goals – Crisisbless (Nephara)
8 – Vincent Robshaw - CM - 29 - 49 caps – 13 goals – AFC Treason (Nephara)
11 - Damion Bowman – LW – 28 – 73 caps – 31 goals – Crisisbless (Nephara)
12 - Rhys Griffiths - AM – 32 - 136 caps – 41 goals - Revolutionaries
16 – Adam Woodman – LW – 22 – 14 caps – 4 goals – Directus

20 – Freddie Wright – RW – 31 – 46 caps – 10 goals – Brigham
22 – Clint Rogers – CAM – 28 – 1 cap – 0 goals – Spartangrad
24 - Sharon Erskine (F) – CDM – 25 – 0 caps – 0 goals – Northern Union (Brenecia)
28 – Bobby Malone – RW – 23 – 8 caps – 1 goals – AFC Treason (Nephara)
29 – Ronan Stenhouse – CDM – 26 – 0 caps – 0 goals – KT Moreazerua (Audioslavia)

Pool
Frank Bevan - CM – 32 – 76 caps – 8 goals – Holdenberg
Gabe Stevens – CM – 27 – 0 caps – 0 goals – Bastion
Rob Ricketts – AM – 22 – 0 caps – 0 goals – Revolutionaries
Travis Vivier – LW/ST – 20 – 0 caps – 0 goals – Holdenberg
Lily Shephard (F) – RW – 29 – 0 caps – 0 goals – Holdenberg City
Robert Marshall – AM – 20 – 0 caps – 0 goals – Oakstone
Herbert Brewer – CM – 22 – 0 caps – 0 goals – Spartangrad
Travis Coffey – RM – 21 – 0 caps – 0 goals – Ma Alameome (Farfadillis)
Taron Matthews – CDM – 24 – 0 caps – 0 goals – Crossroads (Chromatika)
Wallace Pickton – LM – 26 – 0 caps – 0 goals – CASK Thorsborg (Savojarna)
Julian Mann – CAM – 28 – 0 caps – 0 goals – Urbizania Wanderers (Astograth)
Simon Smith – CM – 23 – 0 caps – 0 goals – Pradera FC (Valladares)
Chris Ashton - CM - 32 – 12 caps – 2 goal –Marinos Metropolis (Valladares)
Eamon Mullins – CM – 27 – 0 caps – 0 goals – Herzegovina City FC (Banija)
Owen James – RW/LW – 18 – 0 caps – 0 goals – Carsby
Jacob Bentley – CM – 21 – 0 caps – 0 goals – Directus
Ben West – AM – 19 – 0 caps – 0 goals – Falourr
Flora Brown – CM – 20 – 0 caps – 0 goals – Hornchurch
Richard Clements – CM – 30 – 0 caps – 0 goals – Farrenton Athletic
Bradley Howarth – CM – 29 – 0 caps – 0 goals – Unioneers

Little to no change from the Copa, except that Eamon Mullins and Chris Ashton are both out in favour of Ronan Stenhouse and Sharon Erskine, as Lee Sharp looks to give himself more options in defensive midfield so that he can play Monica Rowland in a more box to box role, as Michael Brandon tried to do with John Talbot. Henry Patterson has now supplanted Rhys Griffiths in the starting lineup and Adam Woodman is pushing Damion Bowman hard for his.

Forwards

9 – Brian Bond - LW/ST – 32 – 119 caps – 98 goals – Oakstone
10 – John Fletcher – CF – 33 – 63 caps – 34 goals – AFC Treason (Nephara)
14 – Tommy Sutton - ST - 27 – 18 caps – 8 goals – Falourr
17 – Isaac Tomlinson – ST – 28 – 5 caps – 3 goals – Sabrefell Athletic (Nephara)
26 – Franklin Harris – ST – 27 – 1 cap – 0 goals – Rolalas FC (Valanora)

Reserves
Martin Blessed – ST – 31 – 1 caps – 0 goals – Royal Rumiatzi (Astograth)
Lewis Phoenix – ST – 30 – 1 caps – 0 goals – Stahlburg City (Nephara)
Stewart Robson – ST – 24 – 0 caps – 0 goals – Directus
Christine Atkinson (F) – ST – 21 – 0 caps – 0 goals – Lajuno
Rita Brookfield (F) – ST- 21 – 0 caps – 0 goals – Oakstone
Darius Purcell – ST – 24 – 0 caps – 0 goals – Workers Union
Charlie Gray – ST – 26 – 0 caps – 0 goals – Southern Star (Brenecia)
Scott Walker – ST – 27 – 0 caps – 0 goals – Northern Union (Brenecia)
Alex Sharp – ST – 18 – 0 caps – 0 goals – 1830 Cathair (Audioslavia)

No change up front Eura, although this will likely be John Fletcher’s last tournament. Tommy Sutton and Isaac Tomlinson, looking increasingly deadly at Falourr and Sabrefell Athletic, both aim to succeed him, or even Bond.

Preferred starting lineup

Note: this does not take into account suspensions, injuries or any other change. At the end of each RP I post, I will try to give a team for the next match and formation type. If no such line-up is posted, assume that there have been no changes and use the line-up below.

GK - 1. K Belgrave
RWB – 2. A Watts
RCB - 4. J Menard
LCB - 5. D Steele
LWB – 3. L Almwood
RCM - 6. M Rowland
LCM - 8. V Robshaw
RAM - 7. M Woakes
CAM – 18. H Patterson
LAM - 11. D Bowman
ST - 9. B Bond

Eura may sometimes play 4-2-2-2, or a 4-3-3.

Squad Captain: Monica Rowland
Vice-Captain: Vincent Robshaw
Direct free kicks: Henry Patterson (Right footed), Lucy Almwood (Left footed)
Indirect free kicks: Henry Patterson (Right footed), Lucy Almwood (Left footed)

EURAN OCEANIA TERRITORIES
"The Expats"


Euran Oceania Football Federation
World Cup 87 Qualifying Squad


National Introduction

Kit: Blue with combination livery of Euran gold and Syndicatian white. Alternative kit is the same but Syndicatian or "Revolutionaries" green colours.
Stadium: Flynn Arena, Fligsive, 96,500
Style Mod: +4


The Euran Oceania Territories is a parliamentary federal dominion of Eura, formed of the Euran zone of the former Inevitable Syndicate and the Whittorian Islands. It has a population of around forty million people which is quickly rising, making it a beacon of diversity home to Syndicatians, Whittorian refugees, Euran migrants, Apoxians, Audioslavians, Samebans and many others. It has possibly the world's largest artificial crater, which dominates the landscape west of what is now a rebuilt Fligsive, the capital of this new entity. Its home stadium is the the Flynn Arena, where Eura beat Polar Islandstates 4-2 in the famous 66th World Cup final. Few would have predicted that the colours of red, blue and gold would become permanent there but its happened, and the stadium is now back in good condition after an expensive refit to return it to the 96,500 capacity it held previously.

Previously a wooden stadium, the current iteration of the Flynn Arena was rebuilt after a great fire destroyed the stadium during a game between Fligsive FC and Magnaeus City. Nowadays, it's a little more robust, having been the subject of many refurbishment projects over the years. The stadium was easily reachable on the Fligsive Metro before the violent overthrow of the Corvidae regime and the associated disaster in Fligsive. It now sports a combination of the old paint job as well as Euran blue and gold while the local club Fligsive FC are still in existence despite drawing lower crowds after the Mertagne exodus. Though they did not play in the hastily cobbled together amateur EOTLeague, they are the dominant side in the new professional EOFL.

Euran Oceania Territories formed a national football team not long after the founding of the political entity, a project conjured up by the Euran government Ministry of Sport to imbue a sense of cohesion among the diverse population of EOT. They played a series of friendlies against other "Eurasphere" sides from Endemia and Rushmore in a lengthy state subsidised tour. Their first games were defeats against Daera, Itor and the Ferguson Islands, before an unexpected 4-3 victory against Helving, despite their Euraleague star Scott Barnes scoring a hat trick.

They then entered the 50th AOCAF full of excitement despite having a mostly amateur team, including serving military personnel, but were promptly demolished in the group stages by several teams. Now, with the citizenship laws relaxed to allow the growth of the Territories, the "Underdogs" as they have come to call themselves were suddenly confident that they might be able to pull off a shock or two. Their first manager was of top class pedigree - Tolgus Tregajorran, a footballing hero in Apox who was well known on the international scene.

Tregajorran managed to persuade some former Apoxian internationals, playing in Eura and with no international allegiance following the temporary dismemberment of Apoxian professional football, to sign the relevant papers and make the surprise switch to EOT, as well as Euran's and other international exiles. After several years of bit part competition EOT competed in the World Cup qualifiers for the first time and in turn the Baptism of Fire, after the Sameban national team withdrew from the Endemian International Sporting Agreement and international football.

EOT performed poorly at the Baptism of Fire, going out at the group stage, but put on a respectable showing in their qualifying group for the 80th World Cup. Tregajorran's unexpected departure and a chaotic period followed with Rhys West as manager, who was soon sacked over an off-the-pitch indiscretion. It ended with the controversial appointment of Euran footballing legend and cult icon Skorji Oslograd halfway through World Cup 81 qualifying. Immediately applying Oslograd's "Skorjiball" approach - best summarised as an extremely aggressive and fluid attacking game interrupted sporadically by the manager doing something inappropriate - the team secured some noteworthy results but remained very much an underdog competitor reliant on an aging core within its squad.

Oslograd's dream is to turn them into the living embodiment of "the way of the warrior" and to qualify for the World Cup. His first AOCAF was the first tournament where Olsograd was able to demonstrate his own approach to the game in full but the results were mixed. Then he led the side into World Cup 82 qualifying, but a dreadful start to the campaign snuffed out any hopes, although a later revival ensured a semi-respectable finish. But the team did lose a bit of its soul, playing more conservatively than previously, a trend that Oslograd reversed at AOCAF LVIII. The Expats excited fans with their performances and took the scalp of Valanora, easily the biggest victory in the young teams history before exiting in the knockouts against Banija.

As a result the squad went into qualifiers for World Cup 83 and the following AOCAF largely unchanged, only to disappoint again, and then again at World Cup 84 and the 76th Cup of Harmony. Several retirements and the ageing of players left the squad looking weak for amidst rumours that Oslograd would quit, with his mind turned to helping grow the domestic game in the Oceania Territories - the launch of a new domestic league having now occurred. Oslograd, now 56, quashed these rumours by opting to extend his existing contract and undertaking some of the most radical changes to the team since its formation.

Despite an above expectations performance at AOCAF 60, including a memorable 4-3 win over Audioslavia, it all came apart for the Expats in qualifying for the 85th World Cup and the 77th Cup of Harmony where EOT were routinely humiliated and left both tournaments at the earliest stage in terrible form, a huge step backwards on previous attempts at qualifying relative to expectations. The young dominion's footballing pride, the player's reputations and Oslograd's entire philosophy were being openly queried by the international media - Oslograd's headline-grabbing theatrics had come back to bite him.

Following that disastrous campaign Oslograd has embarked on the most radical overhaul of the Expats squad since the arrival of the original "Expat" contingent led by Karl Cotrell and David Cooke, chucking out a whole group of players deemed "past it" and bringing in unproven talent from EOT's brand new EOFL. Several players retired and many more were dropped. The formation changed again too, abandoning three at the back and now resembling a 5-4-1, but with both fullbacks lumped forward and only two strikers, making it a kind of horror movie version of a 3-5-2. This was a hell of a gamble by Oslograd who for the first time in his tenure faced a serious threat of the sack.

In the past he was perceived as being too big to fail, especially given his popularity in the Territories and back in Eura, and his excellent reputation as a player and early in his management career. Now he was increasingly becoming more of a meme than a manager and had put the EOFF in the red with his antics. Failure at the previous AOCAF made that pressure worse, and when the Expats flat lined for the first few games of World Cup 86 qualifying, it appeared that his reign was at an end. Only an unexpected return to form and impressive recovery in the latter half of qualifying saved his job and secured a respectable finish. They blew out at the following AOCAF on low expectations, following the international retirements of EOT legends Kurt Strong, Peter Chadwick, and the slightly less beloved Tom Duffy. So where next? Skorji Oslograd is 58. The team is missing much of its formative bedrock. It hasn't gone anywhere when they had them anyway. Can Skorjiball pick up from where it left off with the form found during the second half of World Cup 86 qualifying, with an even more attacking style?

I Give To My Opponent The Permission To:
=================================
Choose My Goalscorers: Y
Godmod Goalscoring Events: Y. Le-T will score mostly bangers. Ramsey will score mostly flukes. Fuller, Conway, Dravon all likely to score as well.
Injure Players: Y, however I'll decide the severity. As for your own players, with Oslograd as manager. EOT players will deliver career ending injuries on command.
Godmod Injury Events: Y, however I'll decide the severity.
Red Card Players: Y
Yellow Card Players: Y
Godmod Other Events: Yes, but give me some warning/ask for advice unless its Skorji Oslograd doing something absolutely batshit in which case go for it. I reserve the right to contradict you in this case because he is a man who can bend reality with his sublime words after all. This is an unorthodox team, so feel free to be creative.

Maccian Football Association's Squad For The World Cup 87 Qualifiers


Image



Brief Team Introduction:

The Riflemen are coming off of a Quarter-Finals appearance in the 78th Cup of Harmony and have seemed to be able to bolster the squad with even more talent. After finishing a modest 5th in the previous World Cup Qualifiers, fans are hoping that as the third pot, Maccian may be able to at least finish in the top half of the group.


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 Maccian side towards future greatness and prosperity. 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

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 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.

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 their 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.

Understanding the Pool

Thoumas d'Herbigny was hired after serving as the Manager of the Oberour Ar Moro Under-18 team, but found his seat hot after failing to qualify out of the group stage of the Copa Rushmori. He needs to find a roster than can finally match the Dragoon's rating if he wants to keep the Football Management Committee satisfied.

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.

Fluvannia returns its roster from WC 86, in part because these really are just the best players we can find. Soccer isn't exactly the most popular sport in Fluvannia, so the best players tend to stick out more as obvious choices. Luckily, this also means that everyone on this roster has experience at the international level, and has done a relatively good job jelling as a unit.

If we talk about players, Pablo Colín, the goalkeeper, is considered as a Lev Yashin around the nation, his height and hability to detect where a goal is coming has helped him in his short career
Ferdinand Faibermann is recognized for his ability at passing, as well as with air balls
Ulises Rivera is good at passing the ball, and he has done better in defensive skills, not as good as Ponte, who is good intercepting passes, thought not good at passing balls, and a bit slow
Navarra is very good at large passing, and a good corner taker as well, he is the best assistant of the national team, while Casquillo and Van de Nainssen both are good at shooting, very fast but will have to improve a bit on passing
Pietro Pelatto is a high-skilled player at dribbling, and very fast as well, very good at passing, but needs to practice more shooting
Volodov is also very fast, he shoots pretty well, but his dribbling skills aren't that good, thought in assisting and in head shooting he is very good
San Marcos is the best of all at dribbling, and a good assister, he controls the ball perfectly, but age started to take effect, not a very fast player, and lacks some strenght and vision
Öctagôn, the captain, is the best at shooting, he has a lot of strenght as well, and good at dribbling, just that he would have to improve headshooting and some centers by air

Captain: Öctagôn

Overview

Football isn't a big thing in Ranoria (well, this version anyway) and frankly no one is expecting a huge run from this team. However, Ranorian soccer players also haven't gotten a ton of international exposure in terms of competition. With that said, we have no idea how good they are in comparison to other players around the world, we just know they're probably under appreciated at home!

Anyway, the most recognizable name here is Barry Chlorid. He's an NSCF championship winner with the Cold Hill Buffalo, served as Ranoria's world bowl kicker every year but this year (citing wanting to focus on preparing for the Baptism of Fire). He kicked four field goals in the Buffalo's NSCF XX victory over Northern Moravica, and he's a three time first team all pro already. He was actually a two time All Ranorian at Cold Hill as well in what Ranorians refer to as soccer, but he couldn't turn down the millions the RFL was offering. Anyway, here he is, a strong athlete with a god-gifted leg, hoping to help keep our Krauts from humiliating themselves on the world stage.

6 Tony Berg 6-1 175 26 Cold Hill Couriers

Barry Chlorid: Chlorid is a highly decorated gridiron kicker, but he only went to the fake football "dark side" in order to pay for school, and later to make the kind of money that he never could have touched otherwise. Regardless, he's here, and plans on also serving as Ranoria's World Bowl kicker once again next season, as the Baptism of Fire will allow him a bit more leeway to train. NSCF XX champ, 3x all pro in the RFL, and he's been Ranoria's World Bowl kicker in all but one of his professional seasons. He was a two time all Ranorian in this sport in college and was a phenom in high school, despite playing two sports at both levels. Expect a fluid and talented if rusty athlete.

Felix Graf: Obviously larger for a soccer player, Graf is often asked why he's here, and not playing gridiron. He'd probably call you a meathead, but the guy has deceptive straight-line speed and obviously he's a physical presence on the field.

Rayko Grossman: An older player with an impressive resume, Grossman can be expected to sport solid fundamentals at any stage of the game, but he may have lost a step in the last few years.

Esther Simson: An agile and athletic player in the prime of his career, he's a perfect foil for Grossman, as he stll has a tendency to be out of position from time to time.

Chris Jenkins: Jenkins exhibits a ton of potential and is an impressive athlete, but he isn't a top-notch player just yet.

Kris Reinhardt: A fresh prospect just out of college who probably won't get a ton of playing time this go around, but he's certainly busting his tail to break into that starting lineup.

Vincent Emilia: A solid goalkeeper for the Revolt, he's got a few all pros under his belt at this point. Expect as good of play from him as you can expect from a Ranorian. That said, he's got Karsten Leonore, an up and comer, breathing down his neck.

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.

After that, the Reçuecians held steady but failed to make any meaningful advances. The nation didn't advanced past the round of sixteen in either the IAC or the World Cup in either of the next two cycles. However, at the last IAC, things fell apart. With only a single victory in the first round, Les Licornes finished second-last in their group, a result that was dubbed a 'national embarassment' by Reçuecian news outlets. Has the team been cursed to by its spell as a prodigy to live forever in the shadow of its early successes? Is it all downhill from here? Or will the team be able to recover in the world cup?

All time record: 89-41-41

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.

Image
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.
