Cup of Harmony 79: Everything Thread

Cup Of Harmony 79- Cassadaigua and Northwest Kalactin


Welcome to the 79th Cup of Harmony! So, you wanted to be somewhere else, we get it. Don't worry, the Cup of Harmony is not just a consolation tournament, it's an opportunity to grow your team with the hopes of carrying that momentum into the next World Cup cycle. Many great nations have won this competition, so make the most of it! Good luck!

We will be having a 64-team tournament. Both Northwest Kalactin and I have gone over the RP's and feel that this is the best format. Thank you to all of you for a well roleplayed World Cup, allowing this to be possible. With the 64 teams, there will be sixteen groups of four, and 32 teams making the knockouts. In a way, both the Cassadaigua half and the Northwest Kalactin half will look its own World Cup with 32 teams on each side, and sixteen teams making knockouts on each side.

We will begin handing out the invites shortly. As will be stated in the telegram, the only way to accept the invite is to post a roster in this thread. The invite is not considered accepted until that happens.

The Nation
Northwest Kalactin is a nation of 23 million people. The nation is an Anarchy, although foreign efforts to restore order in the nation have been increasing as of late. The tempature is among the hottest in the multiverse, so players can expect to be required to intake many fluids during the matches. In the nation, there are 2 major airports to fly into: Gold Coast and Coffs. Gold Coast is the largest city in the nation, with 4 million people in all, and Coffs Harbour is not far behind at 2.9 million.

The Stadiums
Image
Gold Coast International
Gold Coast international football stadium is a very nice stadium, it holds up to 104,000 people and is the largest stadium in Northwest Kalactin. The stadium has a retractable roof, so if games reach dangerous temperatures, fans and players can stay safe. The stadium also holds the location of the Kalactanian Sports Hall of Fame, along with a plethora of championships, playoff games and rivalries throughout the Kalactanian sporting calendar.
Local Teams: GCCFC, Gold Coast Gridiron, North Coast Baseball
Groups: A & B

Image
The Harbour Coliseum
On the sunny beaches of Coffs Harbour is the Harbour Coliseum. The Coliseum holds a total of 64,000 people, although can hold a total of 70,000 via expandable seating. The Coliseum plays host to River City during the NKSL regular season, although games for the squad will be held at nearby stadia during the Cup. Coffs is a large city, and you can expect to experience the most culturally diverse city in the nation while you are here, as this can be considered a entrance point for many immigrants from foreign nations.
Local Teams: River City, Coffs Rugby
Groups: C & D

Image
Kempsey Centre
Located in the busy streets of Kempsey, the southernmost major stadium in the nation will be providing services this Cup of Harmony also. The Centre hosts a total of 49,000 people, and provides the most well known club in Northwest Kalactin, Kempsey United, with their home stadium during the NKSL season. This is one of the few stadiums without a retractable roof, however due to the Southern location of the stadium, you can expect cooler temperatures than the rest of the cities
Local Teams: Kempsey United
Groups E & F

Image
The Ballina Stadium
The Ballina Stadium may be one of the most iconic stadiums in the entire nation. It hosts 2 of the most successful clubs in the nation, and is also home to a local rugby team. Coming in with a 50,000 capacity, The Ballina Stadium is the furthest inland, however it is only a 45 minute drive to the beaches of Byron Bay. The stadium is also well known for having a giant parking lot, where many teenagers from Ballina take their driving tests when they come of age.
Local Teams: Ballina FC, Ballina Red Devils, Ballina Rugby Club
Groups: G & H

CUP OF HARMONY 79
TRAVEL GUIDE


The Cassadaigua Board of Tourism would like to welcome you to our great nation for the 79th Edition of the Cup Of Harmony. We, on behalf of the Cassadagan Association for Soccer Excellence (CASE) are proud to be hosting this World Cup alongside the great nation of Northwest Kalactin.

Many of you are here to support your nation that will be playing their games here in Cassadaigua, but there will additionally be many that come here as a neutral fan, simply to enjoy the greatest sporting competition in the World. You are here to enjoy the great sport of football, or soccer, whichever it is called in your homeland. However, there is so much more that you can do in Cassadaigua. This guide will provide information that will help you get the most of your visit, so that you can leave happy no matter what the ending result of your nation’s fate becomes in the competition.

Part I: About Cassadaigua

1)Firstly, where is Cassadaigua and what is the best way to get here?

Cassadaigua is located in the region of Rushmore, and more specifically south-central Rushmore.

The best recommendation to get here is to fly in, unless you are from nearby in Rushmore, you may just want to drive or take a train. All Cassadagan cities hosting games have a major airport (even Winchester!), and the nation has an advanced rail system as well. If you insisted on traveling by sea, there are some easily attainable port cities to make it very convenient, but we suggest flying in.


2) Will I be safe? What is crime like?


Cassadaigua is no more or no less safe then any other nation. During the World Cup, you can confidently expect and enjoy world class security to ensure your utmost enjoyment at the games and the communities in which they are taking part. The security presence will be noticeable throughout, but also have been highly trained in these situations, so they will not bear an overwhelming or intimidating presence. If one is intimidated by it, then they were probably planning on doing something wrong in the first place.

In recent years, the Matriarchy has seen improvements in gender equality. Organizations such as MEN (Male Equality Now) have peacefully been successful in narrowing the gap. At this time, therefore, protests are not occurring.

3) Tell me more about your female-dominated society. Are male tourists safe?

Cassadaigua’s society is different then what is seen throughout most of the world. In our nation, the female is the dominant gender and is superior to the male. This should not be surprising if you have followed our own national sport teams in even the slightest of ways. There are some groups who feel that men are greatly oppressed in our nation, but that is not really the case. If you are a man, and you are visiting Cassadaigua, as long as you are aware of our somewhat different culture, you should not have a tough time fitting in. After all, Cassadagan men that play by the rules here and respect their role can be very successful themselves. As long as you respect our culture, you should be fine while you are here. If you act disrespectful, then don’t be surprised if you are soon put in your place. You are expected to follow all Cassadagan laws, even if it is not a law in your own country.

4) I’ve been to nations that have talking ponies, or banned cars, or taxes on every little thing. Should I expect anything like this?

Cassadagans love horses, but there are no talking ponies here. At least not that we know of. If we have any sentient immigrants from nations like Equestrian States, they keep a very low profile. Cars are very much a way of life, and our taxes aren’t anything out of the ordinary, and if anything are a little lower then average. Cassadaigua is modern, economic powerhouse. There are no unusual factors associated with the country, other then the gender differences.

Socially, Cassadaigua is open to members of all faiths, and we respect your right to worship your respective deity in the way you see fit; or to not worship one at all. Homosexuality is accepted in the country, though we can’t promise that some random drunk in the stands or on the streets won’t make offensive comments.

As far as drinking is concerned, the legal age is 18, though many get away with underage drinking as it is not as aggressively policed as it may be in other lands. However, do not drink and drive. If you are caught, you will have a greater jail sentence then you might be expecting, and if you kill anyone by drunk driving, you will receive the death penalty.

Smoking anywhere in public is banned, but legal in your own home. This applies to both cigarettes and marijuana. All other recreational drugs are banned.


Part II: Host Cities

CONCORD HEIGHTS: Dagan Airways Stadium (Capacity: 83,000)

Concord Heights is the capital of Cassadaigua and hosted many international championships in the past. This includes the World Cup, as well as several editions of the World Baseball Classic. The city, which is also the most populous in the country, has a lot that one can do, whether sports themed, or not. Chances are, you are coming here for sports, so feel free to visit the Cassadaigua National Sports Hall of Fame. Here you will learn the stories of the legends of Cassadagan sport, including those who have their numbers retired from the soccer team on monument wall in the north end zone of the stadium (the concept here is like Monument Park at Yankee Stadium). While at the Hall of Fame, you can also learn about other Cassadagan legends and earn new or greater appreciation for those who helped us become the first nation to win a title in the five greatest sports in the World.

Those wishing to do something non-sports themed can find additional museums across the city, including the national museum which pays homage to the past leaders of the nation. You can also take a guided tour of the grounds of the Palace itself where the Queen resides, though access to the Palace itself is not open to public. The city is also home to prestigious learning institutions, such as the University of Concord Heights, but perhaps stop by the Concord Heights Beauty School which will provide a complimentary makeover for anyone holding a ticket to the final game. Other tourists can receive makeovers at a reduced rate, or simply receive information on looking one’s best in order to impress people when one returns home.

The Dagan Airways Stadium will host the championship game.

BRATTLEBORO: Five Star Mobile Stadium (Capacity: 85,000)

The stadium is sponsored by Five Star Mobile, who have become Cassadaigua’s most well known company in terms of sponsoring sporting events. That has been seen most in NSSCRA where not only did they host the Five Star Mobile 500, but they hosted the Five Star Clash, a competition that was willing to award money to people from anywhere. The company has been great with gearing contests towards fans, and that should be expected during this competition as well. Brattleboro was not always a large city, became that way with the rise of the technological age. The prestigious Brattleboro Technical Insitute played a big part of that, and graduates remained committed to the area. People from Brattleboro are affectionately referred to as, “Brats”. While here, feel free to visit the Brattleboro Regional Transit Arena in the city and utilize the public transit system that was modernized by the entity from Banija.

The city these days has something for everyone, but it does not try to hide the fact that it caters more to the younger demographics then it does older citizens.

The city will host the Cassadagan semifinal, as well as other games to be determined.


GRANDE MOUNTAIN - Peak’n’Break Stadium (Capacity: 66,000)

When Cassadaigua opened the doors to international bids on stadiums, Zwangzug-based Peak’n’Break, known of course for their delicious line of muffins and other baked goods may have been taking a bit of gamble. Grande Mountain is a big city and a deserving one, but it also does not have a great reputation throughout the matriarchy due to some disturbing gender rights issues that took place here in the past. In fairness to the city, a lot of that is so long ago that it should not even be mentioned anymore, but it may have made bigger Cassadagan entities hesitant on sponsoring the facility. That did not stop Peak’n’Break, and now the company will see their name on the bigger stage.

The city gets its name due to the fact that it is in the north-central mountainous portion of the nation. It might not be the season right now, but feel free to come back during the wintertime to enjoy the fantastic skiing opportunities here! This is the city where Male Equality Now keeps its headquarters, so you could always pay them a visit if you want to learn more about their recent accomplishments and future initiatives.


STARKSVILLE- Cocoa-bo Stadium (Capacity: 70,000)

“Everything’s better with Cocoa-bo!” proved to be the case with Starksville and the well-known company based in Turori. At first, it seemed like the company was looking to expand with a regional facility in Concord Heights, but it would be that it would be best in Starksville. This city had been in a growing state well before Cocoa-bo’s involvement in the city. It had been the case that Rutland was seen as the our best port city, but the city officials there did not keep up with the times and saw many businesses leave Rutland for Starksville. As the economy shifted, so did the population, and now the renovated Cocoa-bo Stadium is ready to welcome fans of the World Cup. It has had group stage matches before, and while the schedule is still to be determined, it is probable that it will see playoff matches as well.

As a port city, there are plenty of beaches that one can enjoy, and nightlife opportunities abound. Historically, it does not have as deep of a history, as it sees itself as being about the future, instead of looking back at the past.


NEW LAKELAND- Qusmair Stadium (Capacity: 77,000)

The city of New Lakeland was annexed by Cassadaigua a while ago, so it did not initially hold Cassadagan values. Because of that, there was always gender equality in the city. However, as it has become assimilated into our culture, that has changed slightly. Regardless, if you wanted to go somewhere in Cassadaigua that did not really feel like Cassadaigua, this was the place for you. It can be difficult city to describe, because those that live here and the overall northwestern part of the country take pride in their heritage, but at the same time will bleed pink just like anyone else here does in terms of the supporting the national team. Recently, teams from the city have been very successful.

This stadium, sponsored by the Qusmo-based Qusmair allows that nation to still get some attention during the World Cup. It’s a stadium that recently got a facelift but more work is planned in the future to remove some of the luxury boxes that there are too many of, and replace them with standard seating.

The stadium will see some group stage action, but other then that, there is uncertainty.


WINCHESTER- Winchester City Lottery Stadium (Capacity: 59,000)

This is the smallest stadium to be hosting any of the games on the Cassadagan side. Winchester is the anti-Brattleboro, meaning that while Brattleboro has a younger demographic, this city in the mountains has an older demographic. Ironically, it was once a small city that many older retired people migrated too in order to get away from big city life. However, since so many did this, they created a big city themselves. The locals don’t want you here, but they want your money. That is why they are willing to put up with you all coming here and spending your money in the community, so that it can re-circulate in the community and be gambled away by playing bingo or buying an insane amount of scratch off tickets.

This is not a place with much of a nightlife, unless playing bingo is something that you are looking to do, in which case, have at it!


RUTLAND- Ferguson Stadium (Capacity: 64,000)

Even though we stated earlier that Starksville has taken over from Rutland in being the more well known port city, it is not as if Rutland has become a ghost town. There was question as to whether or not it would be used as a host city, but it’s place in Cassadagan soccer history is too significant to pass up. The stadium is named after Courtney Ferguson, the first ever captain of the national team. Her time preceded that of our successful World Cup teams, but this is where she grew up, so the city still holds a unique place.

If you’re coming here, you can still find things to do on the port and some halfway decent beaches. The city itself seemed to focus all its efforts on the port, so while that area is very nice and attractive, it is the rest of the city that needs a makeover.

VICTORIAVILLE- Cassgo Stadium (Capacity: 74,000)

This is a very nice stadium sponsored by the largest oil and gas company in the nation, which is Cassgo, located in the southwestern part of the country. The city is often awarded games in tournaments like the World Cup so that those living in that portion of the country have close games that they can travel too. Those that live here do take a lot of pride in their hometown, and it arguably could be considered a little like Brattleboro without the technological influence.

NS Stats are sometimes right, but sometimes wrong. TG me if you have questions, but the most important thing to know is that Lorrana is capitalist, even though the stats show otherwise

Northwest Kalactin: What to Expect
Of course if you are traveling to Northwest Kalactin you need to bring some shirts and shorts. The average temperature is around 80 degrees all year, however, during the summer it can go up to one hundred degrees. Most stadiums in Northwest Kalactin are either domes or have retractable roofs because during the summer players will easily overheat. The hottest that the temperature that the weather has gotten in the summer is 113 degrees farinheight. The largest cities are Gold Coast, Coffs Harbour and Kempsey. All 3 of these cities have over 1 million people in them but Gold Coast is the largest city with over 2.8 million people in the entire city. Coffs has 1.7 million and Kempsey has 1.2 million.

Almost all of the large cities have teams in all of the different sports leagues, however, different regions have different popular sports. The main coastal cities have soccer and gridiron as the most popular sports. The farms inland also like both Soccer and Gridiron but many baseball players also come from the inland rural areas. In the eastern mountains have hockey as the most popular sport but, bandy is also a very popular among kids which makes the nation one of the best in the world in bandy. Down south, soccer and basketball are by far the most popular sports there. The kids in Northwest Kalactin currently are one of the most promising sports generations ever in the nation as they are now putting up some of the best youth teams in the world. Northwest Kalactin is pretty light when it comes to laws however, all visitors and opponents are expected to follow the laws for the duration that they are in the nation. Drinking is permitted for those over 17 and smoking is illegal outside of designated areas. Some of the best textiles industries in the world can be found in Northwest Kalactin as the huge textile factory, Holcomb Textiles headquartered in Byron Bay. Many tech companies are also based in the nation as the Tech Company Startup Fund provides money for those entrepreneurs in the tech section who look to be based in Kalactin.

Where you will play

Gold Coast international football stadium is a very nice stadium it holds up to 104,000 people and is the largest stadium in northwest Kalactin. Many people are surprised that the stadium has a retractable roof even though it is very hot in northwest Kalactin in fact the reason why the roof is there is because of the heat! One time it was 114 degrees Farinheight in Gold Coast so they put the roof up. Another thing to look for at the stadium is the before game tailgating there are many food trucks that stop by there and take advantage of the huge crowds. Lastly, be sure to visit the Northwest Kalactin soccer hall of fame that has many interesting artifacts jerseys and other stuff from Kalactanian football

History of The Team
The Kalactanian National Team has been around since the 79th version of the World Cup. The team started out from quiet beginnings finishing in the quarter finals in the 66th Baptism Of Fire against Filindostan. The 80th World Cup Team was highlighted by Jared Sednah and Wendell Jakerein, who ended up making the team of the qualifiers. Sednah was the top player on the team for the Next 2 cycled as he paired up with Luke Dillan to bring the team close to qualifying. Despite the valiant efforts by Dillan and Sednah the team couldn’t end up qualifying in the 82nd and 81st cups. The FA decided not to enter the team in for the 83rd qualifiers due to corruption in the association. The team was quickly eliminated in the 84th qualifiers. The current team is highlighted by younger players that hope to bring the team to the World Cup the the following years. In the 85th World Cup campaign the team put up one of their best qualifying performances. However, near the end of qualifying the team was shaken by the surprise retirement of the star goalkeeper Wendell Jakerein.

Starters

Strikers:
Strikers : Keith Torres, Image Nyashawill, Age: 29
A player that has came off of the bench in multiple recent world cups, Keith Torres is a very reliable substitute, although it will be interesting to see how he does when starting the game on the field. Recently transferring to Ko-oren to play there, Torres is a player that has been with 7 different clubs in his career. Torres is a very strong and fast player, although many think that he lacks the skill needed to become a great striker.

Jimmy McCarthy Image Tor, Age: 28
Jimmy McCarthy was the future of Kalactanian football the second he stepped onto the Project Olimpo campus. He is a natural leader that can lift the spirits of any of his teammates and he brings great talent to the team. He is a bit weak however he makes up for it with his ability to make a move on anyone. Last cycle he was by far the best player on the team, going out and showing his goalscoring ability, and is able to work some magic out there.

Will Sanders Image Murwelldobah FC, Age: 32
Will Sanders is a player that has historically played midfield however he made the switch to midfielder a few years ago. One of the best players on the team he is always focused on making his teammates better through passing. He is a very creative player that likes to express his creativity on the pitch. He was responsible for assists on many of the goal.

Thomas Butler Image AC Itotz Zubia, Age: 19
The future of Kalactanian soccer, is now playing in Audioslavia, and is now with the national team for his first cycle on. He is a magic man by the net, and always seems to come out with the ball in 1-1 battles. He is one of the strongest, and fastest players to ever play for the nation, he will become a great duo with players like Jimmy McCarthey in the next few years, and you can look for him to score many goals. He wants this cycle to be his breakout cycle, and he wants to start it out wi a good AOCAF

Substitutes: Cody Dixon, Image Cirelbourne United, Age: 30
Joe Russell, Image Ballina FC, Age: 31

Midfielders:
Steve Gilbert Image Toureres, Age: 33
Gilbert is a player in the middle of his prime. After showing how he could turn the War Eagles from a second tier team to a team earning UICA qualification the NT picked him up. He is a very athletically talented player that can outrun almost anyone on the pitch. He does lack some skills on the first touch but his athleticism helps him excel on the field.

Frank Owens Image Coffs Harbour FC, Age: 35
Owens has been a mainstay if the starting lineup of the NT since the 80th World Cup. He may be entering his last World Cup as he is very prone to injury’s. He plays a very aggressive game and has a fiery temper, things that can get him in trouble on the field. Owens is currently the team record holder for the most Cautions in one tournament, with 7.

Lamar Hall Image Bul Khungur Miners, Age: 22
Lamar is on his very first cycle on the National Team, and he is a started already. He had a breakout season and helped the Ballina Red Devils earn theirselves a spot in IFCF play this season. He is the younger brother of established defender Matt Hall, and wants to become a reliable starter on the national team in the coming years. Look for him to pass a lot, he spends very little time with the ball once he gets possession. Now in the Tikariot Premier League, he looks to become one of the best team players on the team.

Substitutes: Daniel Guidry Image Kempsey United, Age: 32
Lamar Snyder Image Ballina Red Devils, Age: 27

Backs:
Matt Hall Image Fryi Frêndê, Age: 27
Matt Hall is another player in his prime that has been around on the team during recent cycles. He recently started playing in the Farfadillian leagues where he continues to develop as a player. Hall is one of the strongest players on the team athletically being one of the fastest on the team.

Joseph Anderson Image FC Harbour City, Age: 31
A newer player just recently called up to the National Team, Anderson has exceeded expectations for the team. He recently just entered his prime and he improves very quickly. He does tack up a large number of injuries though, which is concerning for his future on the team. Anderson is a great on-ball defender and can play physically if needed.

Larry Martinez Image AC Itotz Zubia, Age: 28
Martinez is a new defender to the National squad. He played his only appearance before this when he came in as a sub in a Wonder Cup game against Delaclava. He also is a teammate of young striker Thomas Butler, so look for those 2 to have some good chemistry on the field. Just like his preceding teammate at the position, Jake Dakota, he is a reliable defender that has good ball control.

Substitutes:
George Taylor Image Bavingtor City, Age: 27
Brian Wood Image Razalfu Rhinos, Age: 24



Goalkeeper:
Mark Romero Image CF Bondstad, Age: 27
After taking over from the legend Wendell Jakerein, Romero started the final games of the World Cup 85 qualification. Romero is a very young keeper that can look to become a successful player on the Kalactanian National team. Unlike his preceder, Romero is a player that has very good athleticism. What he lacks though, is the tactical smarts that Jakerein possessed.

Substitutes: Lawrence Henderson Image Toureres, Age: 21

The Unofficial World Champions

Nation Name: The Galactic Empire of Kohnhead
Shorter Name: Kohnhead
Nation Trigramme: KND
Record: 55-23-35 (W-D-L)
WCC Record: 37-17-26 (W-D-L)
Inaugural Match: Kohnhead 2 - 2 Riena
Biggest Win: Kohnhead 5 - 0 Al Qurija
Biggest Loss: Kohnhead 0 - 4 Eura
Achievements: First Place at the 2nd Wonder Cup, Round of 16 at the 72nd Baptism of Fire, 5th place in group 2 of WC85 qualfiers, Round of 16 at the 77th Cup of Harmony, Round of 16 at the 10th IAC, Round of 32 at the 78th Cup of Harmony, Round of 24 at the 11th IAC, 4th place in group 10 of WC87 qualifiers
Top Scorer: Aaron Korkson (54)
Most Assists: Linus Rallyton (34)
Most Caps: Charles Laker (112)

Team Info: The Brains surpassed all expectations and turned many heads at their original attempt at qualifying as we came in 6th in our group but that doesn't tell the whole story. We were in it until the second to last match where Drawkland eliminated us by winning 5-4. We have also impressed in virtually every other competition we have been in except for last qualifiers where we did extremely poorly (but don't talk about it). The Michael White era has started off pretty well for Kohnhead with good results at the Twicetagria Football Invitational, however subpar results at the 11th IAC had many wondering if we could truly mount a challenge in qualifiers. With a new formation, a new mindset, and some new players we came in 4th of the Group and even managed to win the UWC belt to carry it into the Cup of Harmony, expectations are for a quarterfinals run at minimum however Michael White's job is not in doubt.

The official roster of the KNFT consists of the following players for the Cup of Harmony. It has players from the KFA (Kohnhead Football Association), as well as some who play on teams abroad.

Starting XI
(C) Right Forward: Aaron Korkson #91 (M) Age: 25 Team: Kohnhead City FC
Caps: 107 Goals: 54 Assists: 23
The 25 year old captain played very well at the Baptism of Fire before their loss in the round of 16. He also was one of the main reasons they were able to do so well in the World Cup 85 qualifiers. He's a strong leader and is able to score goals pretty easily. He and Maltos are the stars on Kohnhead City FC and on national team. He will be entering his prime soon and leads the squad in goals by a pretty large amount. Korkson followed an awful campaign in WC 86 Qualifying with his best in WC 87 Qualifying leading the team in goals and showing why he's considered the top striker.

Left Forward: Erin Maltos #10 (F) Age: 25 Team: Kohnhead City FC
Caps: 107 Goals: 43 Assists: 23
Erin Maltos is very good. While Korkson may have 11 more goals, the impact she has on the game when she's plays cannot be understated and although there are times and there are some games where she may disappear into the shadow of other stars, she has the best footwork on the team and a deadly shot. She like Korkson will be reaching her prime soon and it will be good to see, Maltos like Korkson had a bounce back campaign this cycle which was huge.

Right Midfielder: Al Torgan #21 (M) Age: 29 Team: Capital FC (Sylestone)
Caps: 57 Goals: 8 Assists: 7
He was the top mid off the bench in the last qualifiers and Michael White is exceptionally high on him for good reason and with a legendary season with Capital FC in Sylestone winning the league, MVP, and Golden Boot he may have earned the top sub spot back. While the plan was for him to appear as a sub in every game in place of Ida Cogginter, Torgan just outplayed every expectation and added on to Cogginter's struggles his resurgence in his late 20s has given him a starting spot for the first time.

Central Midfielder: Sophie Johnson #7 (F) Age: 21 Team: Kohnhead City FC
Caps: 35 Goals: 5 Assists: 7
While Sophie Johnson was buried on the depth chart at the Cup of Harmony a great run of form in the KFA Premier League scoring five goals for second place Kohnhead City FC as well as Michael White's approval during training earned her this spot away from Audrey Henderson. It was bold move however especially given the talent at the position but Johnson more than justified her starting spot during the cycle and she fit right in for the offense. Her starting spot isn't going anywhere and she's just another example of why this team can be so good in the future.

Central Midfielder: Linus Rallyton #11 (M) Age: 27 Team: FC Yassaca (Squornshelean Remnant States)
Caps: 106 Goals: 18 Assists: 34
It didn't take long for Linus Rallyton to show that he was the best player in Kohnhead and it happened during our Baptism of Fire as he looked dominant. He is our all time leader in assists with 26 and he controls the game from the center of the field as that guy. Last offseason he completed a massive move to FC Yassaca in the Squornshelan Remnant States and they finished in second place after failing to get a victory in their final match which would have sealed it. Despite this it was a great season being named the second best signing, the fourth best midfielder, and the fourth best foreign player.

Left Midfielder: Charles Laker #54 (M) Age: 22 Team: Barnley FC
Caps: 112 Goals: 25 Assists: 18
In the two years since our Baptism of Fire we have seen the emergence of Charles Laker on the left side of this midfield. His talent, skills, and maturity level have grown exponentially and he will keep getting better in the years ahead. Laker has played in all but one game in Kohnhead's brief history, and he has played every minute of every game showing just how much of an ironman he has been. Laker has slowly been ascending to stardom as one could say and we will get to witness him continue to grow.

Right Back: Taylor Rodar #15 (F) Age: 22 Team: New Capetown Falcons (Taeshan)
Caps: 37 Goals: 1 Assists: 2
Rodar after leaving Bingham City was called up to the National team as possibly the second center back off of the bench behind Porsha. Rodar didn't play too well at the DBC and Bingham City were awful during their relegation year however she was given a shot at the Cup of Harmony and played well, Michael White really likes her skill set. She currently is the starter at right back for Taeshan side New Capetown Falcons who just came in third of that higher level league. Rodar wasn't awful and White prefers her to current backup Callie Porsha but she will have to play better in future matches which I think she will.

Center Back: Miranda Atkinson #51 (F) Age: 21 Barnley FC
Caps: 96 Goals: 3 Assists: 7
Miranda Atkinson has been the second best player on the defense since she became a starter midway through the Baptism of Fire, two years ago. Since then she has improved, just reached, 20, and not to mention won the MVP with Barnley FC in season 1 of the KFA. She like a lot of this team has her best days ahead of her and will be the starter for a long time.

Center Back: Claire Corton #24 (F) Age: 28 Team: Swisston City FC
Caps: 87 Goals: 3 Assists: 6
Corton had a rough start to the BoF, with some saying her and Vargas were the major problem with the team. She stepped it up a bit later in the tournament but overall had a rough BOF. Since then she has been a real redemption story playing extremely well, a lot better than when Callie Porsha had to step in as her replacement. Corton is still in the prime of her career, but she was injured midway through last 85's qualifiers causing her to miss the entire Cup of Harmony. She really has put those questions behind her and has been very solid in the back but will have to keep looking over her shoulder if she wants to keep this spot.

Left Back: Nicholas Radison #14 (M) Age: 26 Team: Port Tacassam FC (Tikariot)
Caps: 111 Goals: 8 Assists: 6
Radison has been the best defender by far. He has the pace to run up and down the wings which is something you always look for in a wing back. Radison has consistently been the lone saving grace of the defense but now the defense is much improved which will take the burden off of his back especially with the emergence of Atkinson, from Claire Corton. Radison is just entering his prime at age 25. He has also been asked to play more of a role in the offense with his speed down the wings. Last offseason he completed a transfer from FC Kohnface City to Tikariotan side Port Tacassam FC
who are surprisingly in a title race sitting in second with just three matches left that Radison has played a part in with three goals and great contributions to the second best defensive team (only one goal out of first).

Goalkeeper: Bertha Sanders #1 Age: 23 (F) Team: Sindvpore FC (Indusse)
Caps: 61 Goals: 0 Assists: 0
After starting for Kohnhead at the most recent U-21 World Cup/DBC, Sanders in a surprise move was named the National Team starter over Madison Richards for the IAC. Richards continued to be on the bench as Sanders who looked good at the DBC took over for the legend that was Jackson Newcastle. Newcastle has also returned to and will be a member of the coaching staff and will especially be helping Sanders. It appears as if Coach Kohnhead made another smart move as she looked great at the IAC and could be the starter for the next 15 years. Qualifiers were more difficult for her but she should bounce back here at the CoH. White is keeping her as the starter after a good Cup of Harmony, and IAC. Sanders recently completed a big money move to Sindvpore FC the reigning champions in Indusse where she will continue to get better.

Image

Formation: 4-4-2

Captain: Korkson
Left Free Kick: Rallyton
Right Free Kick: Rallyton
Right Corner: Rallyton
Left Corner: Rallyton
Penalties: Korkson or Maltos

Coach: Michael White (M) (South Newlandia)

Bench
Forward: Thomas Stratford #12 (M) Age: 22 Nickelson FC
Caps: 17 Goals: 5 Assists: 3
Stratford has barely played for the National team but with Griffin Pheonix-Anderson retiring and Harry Richman getting on with age he has moved up to the first choice striker on the bench. He recently graduated from University and succesfully returned to his club of Nickelson to pair with GPA and Madison Richards helping lead them to a second place finish in the league which he followed up with a third place last season. He played quite well in Twicetagria starting a couple of games and played pretty good off the bench at the IAC and in qualifiers.

Forward: Harry Richman #77 (M) Age: 34 Team: Barnley FC
Caps: 50 Goals: 15 Assists: 5
Harry Richman has come in clutch for this team. He plays 65 minutes a game when he starts yet is ready to come off the bench and give this team a spark whenever necessary. He has come off the bench before and performed extremely well when needed however he has now moved below Stratford on the depth chart. He still enjoys domestic success though as this was a very successful performance in the Challenger's Cup by Barnley making it to the Group Stage and captured his second KFA title two years ago.

Forward: John Smith #19 (M) Age: 23 South Saints (Ethane)
Caps: 3 Goals: 1 Assists: 0
Smith played for Barnley in season one but transferred to the reigning champs of Ethane (The South Saints) in that offseason where he helped them reach third place in the league to go back to IFCF competitions. He will be replacing Griffin Phoenix-Anderson and while he might not be as good he's young like the majority of the team and played quite well last season.

Midfielder: Ida Cogginter #41 (F) Age: 30 Team: Alexandria City (Xanneria)
Caps: 79 Goals: 13 Assists: 13
Two years ago before our BOF many thought Audrey Henderson the then young 21 year old would have her spot. Cogginter proved those doubters wrong and had a fantastic tournament. She really is a big part in the flow of the offense and has great skills as a passer. Cogginter plays second fiddle on Kohnhead City to Korkson and Maltos but she really played well in the BOF and some claim her injury was the reason Kohnhead didn't make it to the quarters. Despite her injury troubles in the qualifiers for World Cup 85 she has returned as good as ever in the Cup of Harmony and in the IAC. It was a bold move to give her the starting spot originally and it was a bold move to give it back to her upon her return to injury but she has deserved it both times. Age and injury unfortunately have just taken a toll on her and while she is still good and will hope to play well over in Xanneria she has lost her starting spot.

Midfielder: Suzanna Barter #60 (F) Age: 20 Team: Kingston FC (Quebec)
Caps: 11 Goals: 2 Assists: 3
Barter replaced Balmer on the squad as they like the upside that Barter offers more than they like Balmer's as Barter is only 19. Suzanna really emerged in season 1 of the the KFL on a surprise Real Dawson squad that made the Challengers. Barter got her only cap (it was a start) in the match against Delaclava which was a friendly and she record an assist. Sophie Johnson was named the starter and she is climbing on a loaded midfield depth chart, as the new Kingston FC player who moved there for a massive 4.75 million dollars (second most expensive Kohnheadian player ever after Rallyton) last summer continues her climb.

Midfielder: Audrey Henderson #9 (F) Age: 24 FC Kohnface City
Caps: 67 Goals: 13 Assists: 10
For the longest time, Henderson was our top sub off of the bench especially in the midfield and she stepped up big time when Cogginter went down early on during the qualifiers at World Cup 85. Despite this it seemed that the young Henderson may never be given a spot to start until finally before our inaugural IAC, Coach Kohnhead decided to give her the starting spot in for Hannah Horsford as we transitioned to a 4-3-1-2. Henderson played extremely well at said IAC but struggled in both the 86 qualifiers as well as the following Cup of Harmony prompting a benching as Michael White made his first big move. Henderson is no longer even a top two option off the bench and it looks like she just hasn't reached her high potential looking poor for FC Kohnface City and always looking invsibile for the National Team.

Defensive Midfielder: Rodriguez Sporet #2 (M) Age: 33 FC Rüsselsheim (South Newlandia)
Caps: 4 Goals: 0 Assists: 0
Sporet will be replacing the forgettable Hannah Horsford as he makes his debut call-up to the National Team. While he is 32 and never once impressed in the KFA playing for the Dawson Diamonds in season 1 (again there were seasons before this) a free transfer to FC Rüsselsheim in South Newlandia changed his career. He was arguably their best player and was named the second best defender in South Newlandia helping them avoid relegation and make it to the Challenger's Cup by way of the Cup. While he probably won't play much and was a surprise call-up it's good to see Michael White using his South Newlandian connections.

Back: Callie Porsha #42 (F) Age: 21 FC Kohnface City
Caps: 58 Goals: 2 Assists: 3
Porsha following CPL's well documented struggles took over the starting right back spot as Coach White eventually benched her in favor of Taylor Rodar. She recently graduate to join FC Kohnface City and is currently the top defender off of the bench. She played a big part in FC Kohnface's turnaround last season and is only 21 so even though she lost her starting job there is definitely time for her to win it back.

Back: Arnold Donaldson #23 (M) Age: 25 Team: Vidal Alchemists (Mriin)
Caps: 2 Goals: 0 Assists: 0
Donaldson was the third new player added to the roster for the IAC after a good debut season in Mriin playing for the Vidal Alcehmists. While he's by no means the best player on the team, Mriin teams are a lot better than Kohnheadian teams and the fact that he's starting says a lot. He is replacing Vargas but is probably the last or second to last defender on the depth chart. Despite reports that he would play ahead of CPL at the qualifiers this was untrue as he only appeared in one game.

Back: Caroline Prius-Lenoard #76 (F) Age: 34 Team: Sporting Kohnhead City
Caps: 66 Goals: 1 Assists: 5
Prius-Leonard didn't start out too well as the entire defense struggled during our Baptism of Fire but since then she has been a constant at right back and has really turned her game around. CPL is getting up there in age and while she has missed only three games as part of the team she has a bad injury history and at 34 many people are worried how much longer she can keep playing at a high level as she has publicly flirted with retiring before last domestic league season and is now on a new team in SKC. CPL looked old, slow, and fatigued during 86 qualifiers which resulted in her being benched for the first time. Donaldson is now ahead of her on the depth chart as is Porsha.

Goalkeeper: Madison Richards #72 (F) Age: 33 Nickelson FC
Caps: 5 Goals: 0 Assists: 0
Richards proved to be a suitable backup in the 3 games that she started last time in place of Jackson Newcastle as she despite some nerves in the first one settled down. At age 32, she will probably remain the backup for the rest of her career as Bertha Sanders has looked very good so far. Richards had another good domestic season and helped Nickelson have a top two defense and finish third just short of the title once again.

Goalkeeper: Amber Washington #25 (F) Age: 23 Porter City
Caps: 0 Goals: 0 Assists: 0
Washington is the third string keeper on the team and will probably take over the backup role once Richards retires. Washington is coming off of a season in which she won the Golden Boot and was named to the KFA First Team for the winning Porter City. She was the only callup to the squad for the World Cup Qualifiers because White wanted a third keeper.

Trigram: SRS
Captain: Jirar Lomidan
Vice Captain: Rudi Dalso
Manager: Anne-Sophie Groothuis (OME)
In the conversation among Omericans as her homeland's most successful national team manager, Groothuis has gotten off to a respectable start with the Black-and-Reds. It's obviously far too early to talk about her place in the history of this national team's history of managers, with just six competitive matches on her resume so far. With three wins, a draw (won in the penalty shootout) and two losses on the record, together with one friendly victory, she helped this team reach their first quarterfinal since IAC 8. While she never managed to get Omerica to the World Cup finals, something the SCFA would dearly like to see her accomplish with the Black-and-Reds, even merely raising them to the level that she reached with Omerica would be a welcome change from the disorder and decline the team has gone through under Zaman and Tamela. To this point, her version of the Black-and-Reds has displayed a sturdy back line, and a fluid, creative attack, though the latter still has yet to show the consistency she would surely like to see. A flexible and disciplined tactician, Anne-Sophie is known to favor a moderately attack-minded approach, but is unafraid to mix things up from time to time in order to keep opponents guessing.

Cup of Harmony 79 Roster

Goalkeepers
Stovar Krieven - ImageNorth Laithland - 34 y/o - Male
Of the many Confederates who have taken their talents abroad, Krieven is definitely one of the success stories. Leaping from floundering Interblag to the Nepharim Premiership, he spent two years with Bishop, being relegated the first, and earned himself an offer from North Laithland, who have established themselves as a consistently mid-table club of late. As a keeper, he is known for his athleticism and, increasingly, his *ahem* enthusiastic and outspoken communication with his defense. If nothing else, the back line will be very clear on what his expectations of them are.

Paiva Shimski - ImageSporting Jaglan - 21 y/o - Female
Shimski has emerged over the past two seasons as a talented young shot-stopper on a team that has not, historically, put great emphasis on defense. Her distribution needs some work, but her instincts are good and her booming goal kicks allow plenty of time for attackers to get under them.

Marzanna Furnadjiev - ImageInterblag FC - 26 y/o - Female
Furnadjiev has been a big part of Interblag's recent resurgence, and Groothuis looks to be trying her out as a potential goalkeeper of the future for the national team. She didn't see any playing time during the IAC, but with at least 18 matches of qualifying to come, she should find her first cap at some point. One can hope her career might follow a similar trajectory to that of her fellow Interblag product, Krieven.

Left Backs
Valda Harkhan - ImageSouth Laithland - 25 y/o - Female
The less famous twin sister of center back Walda Harkhan, Valda has made her own mark on Brasta's back line. A small team from a small market that has been making a few waves in the Superleague amongts much bigger clubs. Harkhan is developing into a well-rounded fullback, as capable defending against opposing wingers as she is carrying the ball forward and joining the attack. She shares her sister's surprising strength in a small frame, and adds to it a serious case of chip-on-the-shoulder.

Jaylene Kazarov - ImageSyneca AC - 26 y/o - Female
Kazarov is a strong wingback with an excellent workrate. After helping Syneca follow up their shocking Superleague title with a third place finish in Season 5, she gets the callup to the national team. She put up enough of a showing in qualifying despite limited opportunities to justify being named to the CoH roster, though she will likely spend the majority of her time on the bench.

Right Backs
Reuter Storsjo - ImageTraal Athletics - 28 y/o - Male
Storsjo, unlike a series of center backs, has stuck around at Traal, and now into his prime, will be an excellent option for the national team Delu continues to age. He is a two-way player, but tends slightly conservative, careful to get back and defend when necessary. His performance was one of the bright spots during WC85 qualifying, earning him a spot on the CoH77 roster, and his continued good form since then sees him return for IAC10.

Taisiya Achthoven - ImageYassaca - 25 y/o - Female
Emerged over the course of the season as Yassaca's new first-choice right back, replacing an injury-plagued Escarano. While there were a few growing pains, her entry to the first team was generally pretty smooth, and the Tigers will have a dilemma on their hands if Escarano chooses to return for another season. She's used to playing in a pretty conservative back line at Yassaca, but has the skill set to move up the field when needed.

Center Backs
Walda Harkhan - ImageYassaca - 25 y/o - Female
SCFA Season 5's Defender of the Year, and a runner up for the awared in Season 6, Harkhan (not to be confused with her twin sister Valda, who plays for Brasta), enjoyed a strong debut campaign through qualifying, despite the team falling short of their ultimate goal. Harkhan is a complete defender, wise beyond her years, with a strength on and off the ball that belies her small stature. Her vertical leap leaves taller players astonished. If she can be faulted for anything, it's being a bit overeager on challenges and too hopeful on outlet passes trying to launch counterattacks. She looks to be a fixture on the Black-and-Reds backline for years to come.

Svenja Baste - ImageStahlburg City - 26 y/o - Female
Right alongside Ystrad on the First Division team of the season, Baste was also a key player on a promoted side, second place Creed. Her club turned in a 100-point season that probably would have been good for the top spot any other year.

Rudi Dalso - ImageJaglan Royals - 32 y/o - Male
One of a growing number of bright spots on a Royals team that has been mired in mediocrity for years, Dalso has also been a steady contributor for the national team for some time now, supplanting Zemen Ystrad and Dymek Raktsov as the successor to Tervi Oleb on the back line. He is a prototypical, if unimaginative, center back, though his briefly undisputed reign as best Confederate defender has been challenged by Harkhan.

Aryel Ciernik - ImageAlgolia - 25 y/o - Female
Not quite the same level of precocious that Harkhan has been, Ciernik still had a solid year with Algolia, and is developing a reputation as a fearless tackler. Despite her penchant for collisions, she has thus far shown just enough restraint to avoid picking up as many cards as you might expect. The two of them playing as defense partners for years to come is a prospect that should give some hope to weary Confederate fans.

Defensive Midfielders
Shrike Hagaz - ImageLeichhardt - 32 y/o - Male
Prior to IAC10, Hagaz had not appeared for the Black-and-Reds since World Cup 83 Qualifying. An unapologetic midfield enforcer, his style of play, though it served him well in Westpike's midfield setup, did not suit the more fluid 4-3-3 that manager at the time Bethany Donnell employed, nor those of her successors. With the shift to Groothuis's favored 4-2-3-1, however, Hagaz's skills are needed once again.

Selvala Tabur - ImageTorpedo Pavlograd - 26 y/o - Female
Like Hagaz, Tabur is most at home in a holding role. Unlike his brute force approach to the position, Tabur plays with finesse, making containing and dispossessing opponents into something more like a ballet step than a tackle. Don't get things wrong though, she's no pushover, and can bring the physicality when needed.

Center Midfielders
Iuri Takala - ImageMegabrantid SC - 29 y/o - Male
While Takala now has considerable competition for the title of best center mid in the SCFA, his main rivals for that title are not in the running to play for the Black-and-Reds. He is primarily an attacking-minded player, and figures to be one of the favored players to fill the spot just behind the striker in the new formation implemented by Groothuis.

Mithya Hashemi - ImageAnomalies - 22 y/o - Female
Hashemi was regarded as a good prospect coming out of Jaglan, but not a world beater. She surprised a lot of people by putting in a very classy performance with Anomalies, winning the Red League, and being named a runner up for both Young Player of the Year, and outright Player of the Year. That kind of performance from someone so young promises great things to come.

Jirar Lomidan - ImageIbini FC - 33 y/o - Male
Another player, like Vladcik, highly regarded in the infancy of the Confederate international program. Lomidan also had to look abroad for an opportunity to prove his quality. Establishing oneself as top-choice center mid anywhere is difficult, but Lomidan managed to do so in the Eternal Empire no less. While Ibini suffered some setbacks in their most recent season, Lomidan's proven ability to lead a team at a high level has finally seen him get the recognition he richly deserved from his home country.

Isperia Marrish - ImageAFC Corvistone - 24 y/o - Female
With Season 5 Young Player of the Year and a spot on the corresponding Young Galacticos longlist to her name, Marrish is a definitely a rising star in Confederate football. A clever, crisp passer, she has yet to establish herself as a significant scoring threat, though on a team as stacked with finishers as MSC, playing that role has been largely unnecessary. Whether or not she'll be content to stay at MSC, where emerging from Iuri Takala's shadow will be a tall order, remains to be seen.

Left Midfielders
Jzeovak Vladcik - ImageAdmiral Storevik - 29 y/o - Male
Also comfortable playing at left forward or striker, Vladcik is enjoying a career renaissance of sorts. Having won the SFS with Admiral, he's back in vogue with the national team, and still has many years of football ahead of him. He scores goals and crosses in the air or along the ground. The main thing he doesn't do as well is defend.

Lavanya Naqvi - ImageMâ Âlâmëómë - 29 y/o - Female
A natural left midfielder, Naqvi is a superb technician, but perhaps hangs on to the ball a little too long for Confederate tastes, something her new club don't mind in the slightest.

Right Midfielders
Oliwer Starosta - ImageDamogran FC - 27 y/o - Male
Born in Soute, Starosta did not come to the Confederacy until the age of 22, when he joined Damogran for a then SCFA record fee of 5 million. Since his arrival, he has been a scoring machine for the Eagles, and has made their attack one of the most dangerous in the league year after year. While IFCF football has eluded them, Starosta's completion of his naturalization process will finally allow him to compete internationally, giving some badly needed star power to the right midfield position.

Naiva Storrev - ImageNewrook City - 29 y/o - Female
Storrev spent three seasons confounding fullbacks with Orient in Brenecia, and earned herself a big move and a payday from Newrook in Nephara. They're not about to be making a run for the Premiership, but if she can stick around as a first teamer in the best league in the world, even for a mid-table side, that's definitely something.

Strikers
Lyzolda Petrov - ImageSabrefell Moths - 28 y/o - Female
Petrov is a complete striker with no major weaknesses, unless one were to fault her on a possible lack of sheer physical bulk. Fast, accurate, with good instincts and a nice turn of skill on the ball. She might not be the best in any one area, but she's the complete package. If anyone is carrying this team, it's her. Leading scorer of the final season of the Nepharan Premiership, first XI Galactico, she's the real deal.

Kaalia Gerstlauer - ImageBlacklake Blues - 27 y/o - Female
Falling out of national team consideration after being mired mid-table with Royals, Gerstlauer's star is back on the rise after establishing herself as a reliable goalscorer with freewheeling Blacklake, culminating in winning the TPL Golden Boot. In that striker's paradise, Gerstlauer has been able to refine her dribble-heavy style quite a bit, and is definitely a much more well-rounded player than when she first came on the scene at the tender age of 19.

Jeska Verhulst - ImageYassaca - 28 y/o - Female
While Yassaca's ascendancy has been built indisputably on defense and midfield possession, at some point you need someone to put the ball in the net. That's Verhulst's job, and one she's gotten pretty good at. At Yassaca, of course, no one is exempt from helping out defensively, and Verhulst has been molded into a high-effort, backtracking striker. The furthest thing from a poacher imaginable.

Netop Football Squad

Nation Name: Netop
Nation Trigramme: NTP
Record: 23-12-17
Achievements: Quarterfinals-BOF 73, League B Third Place-AOCAF LXII, 3rd place Group 5-WC 87
Colors: Blue, Green, and Yellow
Nickname: The Friends (Netop is what colonizers referred to Native Americans as when they were friendly with them)
IC Information about Netop: The Islands of Netop were a colonization expedition by Kohnhead. When they arrived they encountered a peaceful native people and proceeded to wage war on them. Atrocities were committed by the Kohnheadian colonizers but after years of hardships the native people sent the colonizers back to Kohnhead after successfully rebelling. The South Kohnhead situation also forced Kohnhead to abandon it's overseas colony. While the natives won some Kohnheadian colonizers stayed around and introduced their culture to the native people which is why the names, currencies, and language are quite similar. They also introduce the wildly popular sport of football which is played by amateur teams and leagues across Netop.

Last cycle Netop sent its first ever team to the World Cup Qualifiers where they came in 7th of their 10 team group at 17 points after a quarterfinals run in the 73rd Baptism of Fire. Netopian officials claim their COH invitations was lost in transit although many think we just didn't get an invitation and they are just saying that. Netopians were surprised to find out that we could sign up for the AOCAF but because of our geographic location we are technically allowed to sign up and the first appearance went quite well. We won our League C group and almost advanced out of the second phase tied on points with Gyatso-Kai for second but they had beaten us 1-0 to take that final spot into the Round of 24. Out of nowhere in Netop's second attempt at qualification we managed to finish 3rd just three points off of the group winners and so close to a playoff spot, highlights include a draw against Zwangzug and a win against Savojarna the eventual group winners. The Friends unlike last time received an invite to play in the Cup of Harmony that they have gladly accepted with a chance to continue their rise in the ranks.


Coaching Staff
Manager: Joey House (58) (M) House is to put it simply a tactical genius. He was the obvious pick to manage the squad as an unanimous selection and the early signs of picking him are extremely positive.

Assistant: Isaac Galindo (75) (M) Galindo was actually a colonist from Kohnhead but was one of the ones who stayed in Netop and was the leading figure in introducing football to the nation. Unfortunately in recent times he has become quite ill which has prevented him from becoming the full time manager. The thought here is he can help House from the background without having to put too much stress on his body.

Assistant: Vicky Hensley (40) (F) Hensley has recently retired from the sport of football. The idea behind her hiring is to give House the old in Galindo and the new in Hensley as she's supposed to bring new and innovative ideas to the team. Hopefully it actually works out as planned.


Starting XI
GK: #-492 Johnny Howells (23) (M) Howells who is from one of the most Southern Islands has the exact opposite personality of someone who you want on the team. He is the guy who blames others, gets into fights with teammates, has a massive ego, isn't as good as he thinks, and never takes any responsibility. He has some talent although not as much as he says and the backup position is not ideal so he's the starter. Howells played amazing at the BOF and has given us renewed confidence in him.

RB: #2.5 Logan Diaz (29) (M) Diaz is an aging back who has dealt with a lot to reach this point. He once had lots of speed but a couple of major injuries have made him very slow on the right side. He is a safe and secure tackler who you know won't over commit but can be beat on just speed.

CB: #007 Heather Burrows (21) (F) Burrows is the future of the defense. At only 21 she is the third youngest starter on the team. Her main problem is a lack of size but she makes up for it with a massive vertical which prevents her from being a liability on corners. She also tends to be a bit aggressive when making a tackle resulting in a decent amount of cards and over committing errors.

CB: #1492 Bertie Gilbert (18) (F) Gilbert will be taking the place of Vaughn in the back line and will be paired with another young player in Burrows. Vaughn's experience at the back was crucial to their success and while she will return as a coach of sorts, I have serious questions about the defense given that Burrows still needs a bit of time and Gilbert still needs lots of time. Gilbert is tall unlike Burrows but doesn't have the best speed, and her tackles are quite strong and leads to a lot of missed tackles and cards.

LB: #123456 Beau Hendricks (27) (M) Hendricks had to undergo a good battle for this starting spot with Ellie Pitt and despite Pitt being the fan favorite and having the better skill set of the two Hendricks has been named the starter. Hendricks will be under a microscope as he will desperately try to keep his spot.

RM: #-973 Tiana Mitchell (28) (F) Mitchell was brought into the starting XI after Wanda McNeil played horribly. Mitchell doesn't have McNeil's speed but she at least is competent enough on the field and she's next to Park and Holder who are both very good so they can pick up her slack.

CM: #1776 Savanna Park (26) (F) Park is the best player on the team and it's not debatable. She stands in the middle of the formation and has brillant skill moves, a deadly and powerful shot, and good enough speed to make runs. With Holder to her left and the speed of McNeil to her right the midfield is by far the strength of the squad.

LM: #1.754 Max Holder (19) (M) Holder is the second youngest player on the squad and is already one of the best. His best traits are his set pieces abilities as he takes the free kicks and corners as well as ideal speed, strength, and size. Holder should be the superstar on the team in a few years if he continues to develop.

RW: #2020 Zoe Kinney (23) (F) Kinney is very raw on the wing and it was a bit of a surprise that she is in the starting lineup. She has good power and with the right development could become something special. "She is a long term project though and could be heading to the bench if she doesn't play well early on." That's what I wrote before the BOF, but at the BOF she showed us what she could do scoring the second most on the team.

(C) CF: #10a Teddy Riggs (34) (M) Riggs is aging but will be by far the top scorer on the team. Riggs has that ability to find the back of the net often and his powerful shot and 6' 4" frame make him the best option in almost all situations. Despite being 34, Riggs has indicated he wants to play for at least five more years.

LW: #-10 Lyla Wormald (25) (F) Wormald is the 1B to Riggs' 1A as she will get the most assists and will be the second best scoring option behind Riggs. Wormald is relatively young but she has a tendency to struggle in high pressure situations and is a very streaky player.

Formation: 4-3-3

Players in bold are default starters. Other players can be substituted whenever necessary. Ages may be 1 less than actual ages, owing to the Cup of Harmony being slightly off on the calendar year.

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. Having seen these 23 players develop pretty well as a team over the course of the qualifiers, the coach has chosen not to rotate any players out, instead letting these players stay for one more competition.

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.
The Incorporated States of The Gothanita Isles (GTI)

Members of the Isles include: North Handoria, South Jeolerina, Hallikshire and Otksarin.

NEWMANISTAN ROCKETS

OFFICIAL ROSTER FOR CUP OF HARMONY 79


Starters:
GK: #1- Matthew Costner (26, Centralia Firebirds)
-- Playing with defensively minded Centralia, Costner was able to raise his national profile quickly, enabling him to appear as the starter for this team in World Cup 86. He performed well at home, and with that experience, he looks forward to his first qualifying campaign.

LB: #2- Shannon Stefansson (27, Loudon Leopards)
-- Manager Michael Starre made an effort to be all inclusive when it came to gender when announcing the last roster, and that paid dividends with the brilliant performance of the tall blonde fullback. Don’t fall for her appearance, though, because she is also is tall and swift on her feet, and incredible awareness overall. She is tough enough to play this position, but the most physical defender is right next to her.

LCB: #4- Eric Trotman (29, Dover City Mountaineers)
-- Tall and physical. Holds his position very well, and opposing forwards will have a tough time dealing with him. If there is an issue with him, it is that he can sometimes take fouls and cards out of frustration late in a game if the team is behind, which happens in Dover City a little more than he would like. The fans there love the physical element more than most, so they do not mind it.

RCB: #5- Brian Conlin (24, North Charlotte Wildcats)
-- The most promising young defender in the Empire, who has all of the tools that you want in this position, and when he reaches full development maturity, he may become a hall of famer. It was not a surprise that he was named to the team, but giving him this role is a tremendous vote of confidence. Domestically, he is frustrated playing with lowly North Charlotte and hopes to sign with a better club within Newmanistan, or better yet, sign an international deal. It didn’t happen after World Cup 86. Perhaps, now.

RB: #3- Nick Blades (25, Springfield Thoroughbreds)
-- Blades enters the starting lineup for the first time, after appearing on the roster as a reserve. He never played in any of the action, so this will be his first game action at this level. Blades has all the defensive awareness that you want from this position, but also has excellent speed. Some joke that he would be a forward if he knew how to shoot.

LM: #6- Parnell Addington (30, Jessicaville Millionaires)
-- Addington has thrived since signing a huge contract with the Millionaires, and he has not sat on his bank account afterwards. He has only continued to get better, and is still in his prime here. He is listed as a midfielder on paper, but Michael Starre likes to be aggressive with him, so expect to see him up front quite often.

CM: #8- Paul Lombardi (30, Pocono City Capitals) (TEAM CAPTAIN)
-- He is a complete player, in any third of the field. Named the captain of the team after having that role for two seasons with the Capitals, something that is a special honor. Like Addington, he is more of a playmaker than a shooter. His size allows him to win most one on one battles at home. Comes off a fantastic campaign during the last World Cup, and his leadership will help the team through the qualifying aspect.

RM: #7- Madison Desalvo (26, Southport Tigers)
-- The second female in the starting lineup, Madison is the leading female scorer in the Empire, which is impressive considering that she does not play up front. Her shot is powerful, but the fact that she delivers it with pinpoint accuracy is what makes her a great one. Scored clutch goals at big moments in the last World Cup, so the team hopes for that to continue.

LS: #9- Garrett Sarniak (20, Loudon Leopards)
-- A newcomer to the starting lineup this year, and it’s a gutsy call for Starre, given Sarniak’s age. Garrett has impressed in Loudon with his shot accuracy while also adding the element of speed. He is a more complete player than the person he replaces in the lineup, Tyrone Baxter.

ST: #10- Allister Levy (27, Putnam Lake Eagles)
-- Originally named McAllister, after Jeremy McAllister, but he opted to drop the “Mc” from his first name when he turned 16. The parallels to Newmanistan’s greatest ever soccer player did not stop when he was drafted by Putnam Lake, and he immediately became a fan favorite. He is a goal scorer, trying to pattern his game off of Jeremy. He’s not at that level, but he is coming off a great World Cup 86.

RS: #11- Vinny Donaldson (25, South Tier Seagulls)
-- Speedy and creative with the ball. Can create plays and also get accurate shots on net. Could be a more dangerous goal scorer if he were a little taller, but what he lacks in size he makes up for in heart. This young player is another one quietly hoping a well known international side is paying attention for him to consider moving to.

Regular Substitutes:
GK: #21- Masahiro Kawasaki (21, Daytopia Racers)
-- Promoted from reserve to starter. Is best known for his agility, and they are excited in Daytopia for where he may take them. The small market team insists that they will not let him get away, and will open up the checkbook for him, if necessary.

CB: #24- Davis Browne (20, Centralia Firebirds)
-- Top young player in the deep Centralia defensive system. More likely to get playing time against Brenecia or The Sarian.

CB: #22- Alexander Carson (23, Loudon Leopards)
-- A complete newcomer to this lineup, comes off a career year in Loudon, and that has been helped by the way that he clicks with Shannon Stefansson.

MID: #13- Ashley Norton (26, Southport Tigers)
-- Creative playmaker, lacking in size but makes up for it in skill.

MID: #12- Jarrell Connolly (32, Putnam Lake Eagles)
-- The only player on the team who played in a World Cup before number 86. He is a hard worker, and an accurate shooter, which Starre likes.

ST: #14- Kenzie Miller (29, Springfield Thoroughbreds)
-- Gave up playing soccer after high school to pursue a baseball career in college. That went okay, but after not getting drafted, she joined an independent soccer club, and was a woman among girls (and boys). At 24, she signed with Springfield, and her career has continued to improve.

ST: #15- Ryan Singletary (26, Tundra Falls Mariners)
-- Shorter than most strikers, but possesses plenty of strength. This is the first time he has appeared on the roster.

Reserves:
GK: #25- Michael Hopkins (23, South Charlotte Condors)
CB: #23- Javier Chavez (24, Jessicaville Millionaires)
CB: #26- Damian Andrews (20, Seminole Bay Gators)
MID: #16- Kevin Hynes (25, Olympia Gladiators)
MID: #17- Samantha Ellis (21, Penthoria Rivermen)
ST: #19- Jason Cefalo (20, South Charlotte Condors)
ST: #18- Phillip Ambler (24, Pocono City Capitals)

Manager- Michael Starre (Drawkland)
Michael enters his first full cycle as the manager of the Rockets after replacing Miguel Hernandez after matchday 8 in World Cup 85 qualifying. Starre did well, but it was a tough adjustment for him to bring immediate results. He was brought here to bring in someone who had experience in getting a team to qualify for the World Cup, something that he was able to do with Drawkland. In World Cup 77, he got Drawkland to qualify on their first attempt, and managed to do so in the next three World Cups as well. In World Cup 86, he got the free pass into the World Cup, but the team won the group, and reached the round of 16 for just the second time in Newmanistanian history. Well, it's back to the Cup of Harmony.

Modifier: +3
Formation: 4-3-3


Uniforms: Home- Sky blue with white trim; Away- Black with sky blue trim; Keeper- Yellow with sky blue trim.
If conflict- Newmanistan will wear the non-conflicting version of the home or away.

Choose my goalscorers: Yes
Godmod Scoring Events: Yes
RP injuries to my players: Yes, but only say they are hurt. I will determine the severity.

Hand out Yellow cards to my players: Yes
Hand out Red cards to my players: Yes, but no more then one more then you give yourself.
Godmod Other Events: No


Interested in a Newmanistanian player to transfer to your domestic league?
– The Empire of Newmanistan Soccer League (ENSL) provides an opportunity for our best soccer players to make a good living and pays them fairly enough, so it’s not as if these players are not making good money and living a good life with good enough fan support. However, soccer, or as you may say, football, is not as big in Newmanistan in comparison to other sports. Therefore, they are likely to be convinced and interested in the prospects of playing in a league with a higher profile. Ones that do those domestic club competitions. If you are interested in a player, simply TG me and it is highly likely I will say yes as long as I consider your league to be at least equivalent to the ENSL. If you’re just developing your league and are interested, I ask that you target subs and reserves first. Those transfers will probably be accepted.

THE UNITED REPUBLICS OF YUEZHOU - NATIONAL FOOTBALL TEAM
月州人民联邦 - 国际足球队

It’s a new dawn for Yuezhou, and that extends to the national team as well. At home, a significantly weakened federal republic has opened its doors to the Rushmori community (or, to the more cynically-minded Yueren, exploitative foreign corporations). At the Cup of Harmony, meanwhile, Lu Jialan has finally been given a chance to impose his own style on the new-look Red Dragons, as after an exciting WCQ86 and Copa Rushmori quarterfinals run, WCQ87 saw the influential Yuan Zilai finally sacked by the FA. Who will rise and fall in the Yue pecking order under Lu’s system, and how will the rookie NT manager fare? There’s only one way to find out.

Manager: Lu Jialan
Assistant Manager: None [left vacant since the Alba and Cymru Incident]
Nickname: The Red Dragons
Formation: 4-2-3-1
Style Modifier: -2.75
First-Choice Lineup
Tactics:
Yuan Zilai, the previous coach of the national team, used an aggressive midfield press and a dynamic counterattack to stun much more talented opposition. However, it was clear by the end of the tenure that the wheels had come off a bit, especially with the press tending to lead to sloppy defending and tired legs late in matches. There were also some concerns with the attacking setup, with Liu Huiying and Gu Zhalei looking out of place on the wings, and Huang Shedong isolated upfront.

Former Dynamo Dalian and Beian City manager Lu Jialan’s tactics are largely responding to these weaknesses. On the attacking end of things, Liu Huiying has been moved centrally, and will frequently push up to form a strike partnership with Huang Shedong. Wen Xiaohui, although nominally a winger, will usually tuck in and spray passes from a more central position, although Lu would also like her to drift wide more frequently. On the other end, Li Jing is expected to offer more width, but as he’s also a central midfielder by trade, not a whole lot of it. Instead, the focus in open play will be to play more centrally and dynamically, shifting play between the two sides of the pitch when needed. Lu has turned to his fullbacks for width, with Zhu Aiguo (or, potentially, Diadora Reeve) and especially Kang Enlai being given more license to push up and provide a wide threat, although Yuezhou will never have the personnel to play many crosses in.

Without the ball, Lu Jialan sets his team up in a position to counterattack. Immediately after losing the ball, Yuezhou will attempt to defend from the front, trying to win it back. However, unlike Yuan Zilai’s setup, they will not press aggressively in midfield, instead dropping back into a medium block. Both center-backs will play very conservatively, and the midfield pivot also frequently drops back. Instead, the aim will be to control the center of the pitch and force attacks into wide areas, while maintaining space up front to surge forward into a counterattack if need be.

STARTERS

#01 - GK - RUO Xiaolan (罗小兰) (f) - 37 - Cypher Town (NPH)
A very athletic goalkeeper - as well as, after helping Cypher Town secure promotion to Nephara's top flight, the first female player on the national team. She’s a high-flying shot-stopper who, despite some rawness, came into her own as a keeper in the Nepharim Premiership - the first professional league she played in. At thirty-seven years old, she’s lost much of her athleticism (this is almost certainly her swan song for the Red Dragons), but compensates for this with her experience and better feel for goalkeeping, especially on set pieces, where she has upgraded from “terrible” to “below-average”.
#02 - LB - KANG Enlai (康恩来) - 27 - Corvette Maulers (NPH)
The most ambitious of the full-backs on the roster, Kang is the best source of width on the team (although that probably says more about the team than it does about Kang). Strong athleticism and crossing ability, although he is a bit one-dimensional on the attack.
#03 - CB - REN Fang (任方) - 30 - Hamiltonian Cambria (KSK)
A strong, disciplined defender who's at his best in the air. Athletic and very versatile, Ren’s only weakness is that he tends to just hoof it whenever he wins a ball back.
#05 - CB - HAN Jian (韩建) - 32 - Letson Town (ETN)
Cautious and disciplined, the experienced Han Jian is the de facto leader of the backline for both club and country. Incredibly solid, but like Ren, has little skill on the ball.
#15 - RB/CB - ZHU Aiguo (朱爱国) - 26 - Iturributa United (ASG)
An aggressive, versatile defender who likes to win balls and push forward with them. A center-back by trade, Zhu has unexpectedly become Yuezhou's starting right-back - his emergence at the position has earned him a transfer to Astograth as well as his starting spot.
#07 - CDM - YANG Tao (杨道) - 27 - Fagli Cinquanta (SOR)
Energetic but not particularly skilled, Yang will be tasked with pressing aggressively, winning balls back before passing them to someone more creative, and kicking opponents to stop attacks.
#08 - CM/RAM - GU Zhalei (顾炸雷) (C) - 33 - Archbishop FC (NOV)
Gu Zhalei is an energetic presser, an accurate (if not very creative) passer, and the heart of the Red Dragons’ tactical setup. His time abroad in Nova Anglicana has allowed him to shine more as a creative threat, as well as a long-range threat on a good day, but his main focus will be maintaining solidity in the back and fluidity on the counter.
#10 - CAM/SS - LIU Huiying (f) (刘辉映) - 25 - Iron City (NPH)
Liu’s speed and devastating passing ability make her one to watch with every counterattack. Her high workrate, even on the defensive end, should theoretically make her a good candidate to slot into attacking-midfield - but the move, although Lu has stuck with it, has had mixed results so far.
#18 - LAM/CAM - WEN Xiaohui (f) (文小辉) - 23 - CASK Thorsborg (SVJ)
Wen Xiaohui, the niece of controversial star midfielder Wen Xiaoli, could be Yuezhou’s next big thing. She’s fairly raw and not a great tactical fit, but her pace and playmaking more than merit her inclusion in the first-choice starting eleven.
#19 - CM/AM - LI Jing (李精) - 27 - Steinaux (GRF)
The young Li Jing is very quick and excels on the counterattack as a creative or goalscoring threat. Has enjoyed increased praise lately for his exploits in Graintfjall due to the beginning of normalization in relations between the two countries.
#09 - ST - HUANG Shedong (黄舍东) - 26 - Stahlberg Rovers (NPH)
While not particularly good at hold-up play or in the air, Huang's blazing speed and technique mean he excels at exploiting gaps in the opponents' defense with his dribbling and short passes. A strong finisher, but relatively unproven leading a line by himself.

RESERVES

#12 - GK - WANG Bo - 28 - Wahrsager Der Berg (ZRH)
A polished shot-stopper with strong leadership abilities who was rewarded for his efforts with a Golden Gloves award two years ago. Earned a big-money (by Yue standards, at least) move to Esportiva this transfer window.
#23 - GK - GUO Yanhong - 27 - Dhun Lagarr FC (TKT)
A modern sweeper-keeper and competent shot-stopper who is aggressive to a fault, but who had an incredible enough season in Tikariot to earn a call-up.
#13 - RB - Diadora REEVE (f) - 25 - North Sabrefell (NPH)
Diadora Reeve is an athletic, relatively attack-minded fullback who provides an interesting tactical option for Yuezhou in place of Zhu Aiguo. We think she had a Yue grandfather or something, which is why she's turned up on the Yue national team despite everyone previously thinking she was Nepharim.
#14 - LB - JIAWEI Chuan (f) - 25 - Omnio (CMT)
A quick, crafty full-back (or wing-back, or even winger if Yuezhou are really parking the bus) whose biggest weakness is a propensity to get forced off the ball.
#16 - CB - ZHU Mingxia - 23 - Fábrica Tapalupé (TEQ)
A strong, aerially imposing center-back who has no idea what to do with possession. Showed enough promise in Tequilo, albeit as a rotational option, to earn a shot, although that might say more about Yuezhou’s center-back depth than anything else.
#25 - CB - YAO Wenyan - 24 - Olympic Nangang
A left-footed center back who can play left-back in a pinch (for instance, if Lu Jialan really wants to park the bus), Yao is a quick, intelligent defender capable of making surging runs into midfield.
#06 - CB/CDM - GUO Xiawei - 27 - Tanques AOE (KOR)
Formerly a makeshift libero in a back three, Guo Xiawei has been redeployed as a defensive midfielder. One of the first of his generation of Yue players to sign abroad, for since-relegated Tanques AOE, Guo has flashes of brilliance with the ball and is very good at reading and intercepting passes, but tends to make unforced errors on defense too often to be trusted unless in a back three.
#11 - CM - CHEN Xiwei - 30 - Bikarsh (PFA)
Energetic but not particularly skilled, Chen is a slightly more attack-minded option in the pivot who nevertheless mostly just kicks people and wins the ball back.
#17 - CM - LI Keqiang - 26 - Vantanoch FC (TKT)
An absolute wall of muscle, Li Keqiang's combination of pace and physicality make him a tough player to get past. Has proven surprisingly effective as a goal-scorer in Tikariot.
#20 - AM - TAO Beiliang - 23 - Korsbach (GRF)
A relentless source of energy, aggression, and creativity, Tao is still pretty inconsistent, but is a great student of the game and could be starting for the Red Dragons in a few years.
#21 - ST - JI Weibo - 19 - Valley Wanderers (SNL)
While selfish to a fault and not the easiest personality to work with, Ji Weibo has laid waste to South Newlandia to the tune of 17 goals in 22 matches. A pure poacher who’s posed an increased long-range threat as of lately, Ji isn’t much of a team player but can arguably lead a line by himself better than the less physical Huang can, and could be a real option off the bench.
#22 - ST/RW - LUO Dan - 24 - Beian Rovers
A more mobile forward who can deputize capably on either wing if Yuezhou are chasing goals, Luo is a dangerous scorer known for his quick-burst runs behind the defense. Can be a little selfish at times.

PLAYER INFORMATION
GK: Pedja Kasun, 29, Ararat Severyan [MYT]
57 caps, 0 goals
He's been the best goalkeeper in Mytanija for years now and it is getting to the stage where people will begin to worry about having to replace him one day as there isn't anyone currently who comes close to him. He's a great shot-stopper and communicator; possessing good reflexes and speed in order to rush out towards oncoming forwards too. He stands at 195cm so is an imposing presence between the posts whilst also being useful with his distribution of the ball, something which is especially important in Repin's team.

GK: Lazar Obradovic, 26, Liria Prizren [MYT]
7 caps, 0 goals
Obradovic has been selected as substitute goalkeeper ahead of Zafer Muminovic. He's a thoroughly modern goalkeeper, with excellent distribution - some argue the best of any Mytanar goalkeeper - but sometimes his communication can be a little lacking and he can be prone to the odd eccentric moment. Generally a good shot-stopper and never afraid of making an acrobatic save when a simple one would do.

GK: Zafer Muminovic, 26, Tekstil Ibon [MYT]
5 caps, 0 goals
Third choice goalkeeper who has impressed domestically over the past few years despite never having one of the best-stocked defences in front of him in terms of personnel. Some had wanted young Olympic goalkeeper Semir Besak to be included in the national pool ahead of Muminovic, but Repin gave that idea short shrift explaining that he needed experience in case a situation arose where Mytanija got down as far as third-choice goalkeeper and that Besak's time would come in the future.


DL: Srdan Vukovic, 29, 1896 Ebor [MYT]
63 caps, 2 goal
Probably the most comprehensively skilled full back in the squad, Vukovic was a left-sided midfielder early on in his career and that means he's equally adept when marauding forward as he is when fulfilling his defensive responsibilities. He's an extremely important player in the 4-3-3/3-1-3-3 formation that Lev Repin has settled on, with him acting as a normal full-back out of possession and a roaming number 8/10 hybrid when Mytanija regain the ball, opponents may often find that attacks flow down his side of the pitch because of his skill going forwards. A fine crosser of the ball and good link-up play mean he is an integral cog in the teams attacking play, with his on-field relationships with the likes of Fejzuli, Hrdaljko, Gavrilovic and Odonelec likely being crucial to the team's fortunes. He was named in the unofficial team of the tournament in the most recent Copa Rushmori by the Græntfjaller public.

DC: Mojmir Anac, 29, Olympic Thessia [MYT]
72 caps, 3 goals
Olympic's inspirational captain who led them to their first ever Mytanar Top League title in the 27/28 season, being named the Player of the Season and in the recent Galacticos long list as a result. Anac is definitely the best Mytanar centre-back around at the moment and is pretty much undroppable when fit. He's a really solid all-rounder, great in all aspects of his defensive work - heading, tackling, marking, you name it - but also good at bringing the ball out from the back and finding passes to break through the lines of the opposition's formation. He must be a dream to manage for Repin and will be an important player for Mytanija for the foreseeable future.

DC: Grigorij Savicevic, 23, Atletik Thessia [MYT]
13 caps, 1 goal
A real thoroughbred of a footballer Savicevic initially came through the Crvena Zvezda youth system before being bought by Atletik Thessia and he's someone who has long promised to figure in the full national team set-up and now here he is. He's a tall ball-playing central defender, as comfortable using his pace and strength to shrug someone out of possession as he is playing a pass to break through the opposition's defensive lines. He has an excellent attitude to the game too, something which cannot always be said of some players who end up at Atletik and believe that they have made it and they no longer need to put in 100%. He has been blended into the team throughout the two-year World Cup qualification cycle and now has a place in the starting line-up.

DR: Petr Isaev, 31, Crvena Zvezda [MYT]
83 caps, 2 goals
The captain of the national team, Isaev has been a real stalwart over the years for both club and country. He enjoyed a short spell at Brenecian side Northern Stallions but returned to his boyhood club and has continued to be Mr. Reliable for them ever since. When he was younger few would have predicted he'd be able to motivate his team mates the way he can now, he always seemed quiet and unassuming but now he is national captain. Isaev is an old-fashioned full-back, good at defending and perhaps not the most adventurous when going forwards. He's not that quick, but he makes up for that with good anticipation, he reads the game very well. He's been pretty much ever-present since Mytanija returned to the international scene and that serves to demonstrate his reliability and consistency. He's quiet off the pitch and a metronomic presence on it and always capable enough at putting the occasional decent cross in from deep.

DL/R: Patrik Odonelec, 22, Atletik Thessia [MYT]
12 caps, 0 goals
Patrik Odonelec is a member of the famous Odonelec footballing clan, he's the cousin of brothers Jasno and Usten and he plays alongside the former with his club side Atletik Thessia (Patrik born in Thessia, unlike his cousins who were born in Prahecq). He is as good on either foot and that is a useful skill as a defender as it means he can play on either side of the defence. He also boasts good physical attributes as well as being an intelligent player. His anticipation and positioning have always been noted as being advanced beyond his age. Going forward he can be a little hit and miss, sometimes lacking a final ball and that will be something he looks to work on as he begins to take over from Srdan Vukovic in the coming years.

DC: Kamil Jernejec, 28, Olympic Thessia [MYT]
31 caps, 0 goals
Repin showed great faith in Jernejec by selecting him alongside his central defensive partner Anac to start the qualification cycle off, but over time the coach preferred Grigorij Savicevic ahead of Jernejec. He joined Olympic from Arka a couple of seasons ago and hasn't ever looked back. Jernejec isn't as quick as Anac is but he's really good in the air and boasts solid mental attributes as well as being good at distributing the ball. He can drop a long pass over the top for a forward to run onto or play a ball through a press to bring his team up the pitch and this could be useful in games against more defensive opposition (that are prepared to sit deep and only press the player on the ball) or those that operate a high press to try and win the ball in the Mytanar half.

DC: Niksa Obadko, 31, Liria Prizren [MYT]
45 caps, 1 goal
A hugely experienced centre-half, Obadko was once touted as a potential national team captain, but his on-field disciplinary issues with the national side have seemingly curtailed any hopes of him achieving that particular goal. He's been sent off once the national team, but it arguably could have happened on more than just that occasion and although his disciplinary record for Liria isn't poor, he has never really seemed to inspire confidence in Lev Repin ever since that dismissal. He's the same height as Pedja Kasun at 195cm, but wiry when compared to the goalkeeper, although that wiriness shouldn't be mistaken for weakness as Obadko is a strong guy. He's a tough tackler and a limpet-like marker, but a little lacking for pace.

DR: Branko Nikolov, 30, Liria Prizren [MYT]
16 caps, 0 goals
A merely adequate full-back at international level and little more. Nikolov probably thought his national team career was over a few years ago with players much younger than him being selected in squads ahead of him. He's enjoyed a bit of a renaissance and now finds himself as a trusted back-up option for Mytanija. Repin will always prefer Petr Isaev being on the pitch, but Nikolov shouldn't embarrass anybody should he need to be called upon.


MC: Alen Hrdaljko, 25, CDSA [MYT]
37 caps, 5 goal
A central midfielder who has grown in stature over the past few years - we should note figuratively rather than literally, he's still only a dimunitive 170cm - he's toned down his outspoken side whilst retaining the tough-tackling, all-action side to his game. He was talked up as the future of the national team's midfield and now he is very much the present, there's a reason why he captained his boyhood club, the national under-21 squad and the senior national side by the age of 22 and the trust Repin has in him is immense. A terrier of a player on the pitch he is crucial in the team winning the ball back from the opponent quickly and has mastered the art of tactical fouls if it isn't possible to do so fairly. Also an excellent passer of the ball, off both his left and right foot and a useful set-piece taker. He's also CDSA's designated penalty taker, something which is especially useful to have in knock-out football. Scored 4 goals in 13 games from central midfield during World Cup qualification.

MC: Tahir Fejzuli, 30, Mâ Âlâmëómë [FFD]
75 caps, 7 goals
The itinerant playmaker is still the best creative midfielder Mytanija has, now playing in Farfadillis for the diacritic-soup giants Mâ Âlâmëómë. He is excellent in possession, both when passing and dribbling. He can beat a defender with a fine piece of footwork and then play a killer pass to split a defence straight after. He's also a great threat from set pieces, both when shooting and crossing. His top-class vision makes him really difficult to defend against as he may not even be looking where he is going to put the ball and he often seems a step ahead of everyone else on the pitch. He's not great out of possession and intelligent opponents may target him as a weak link defensively. Has previously scored the winning goal in a UICA Champions' Cup final for Nepharim side Sabrefell Moths.

AML/R: Brajko Gavrilovic, 27, 1896 Ebor [MYT]
33 caps, 8 goals
A tall, pacy winger who opponents will find difficult to deal with due to his unusual combination of attributes. Gavrilovic is a good crosser of the ball and quick, whilst also being a threat aerially, look for diagonal balls to him against smaller full-backs to be utilised when the 1896 Ebor man is on the pitch. He wasn't noted for his finishing when he was younger but he has been improving and managed 3 goals in 8 games during World Cup qualifiers, his aerial ability particularly helping him out in that regard. He has a great relationship with Srdan Vukovic on the field, both being 1896 Ebor players and knowing each other's game inside-out. He's a tactically intelligent player and Repin values that enormously, along with his versatility in being able to play on either wing. Repin has decided to start Gavrilovic in the hybrid 4-3-3/3-1-3-3 system due to his physical capabilities compared to Dalibor Vlahovic, with his speed making him a constant threat in behind opposition defences and his aforementioned height giving them issues from crosses and set-plays.

MC/AMC: Jasno Odonelec, 27, Atletik Thessia [MYT]
65 caps, 26 goals
The national team vice-captain and designated penalty taker, Jasno Odonelec has taken some huge strides forward in recent seasons. Odonelec is a player who had played in three different countries by the age of 25 and is a revered competitor in all three, having turned out for his local team in Clichy-sous-Bois, Prahecq (he was born there to Mytanar immigrants); before moving to 1912 Stelburg in Siovanija and Teusland; before finally moving to boyhood club Atletik Thessia following a one-year move back to Prahecq - finishing third in the Top League Player of the Season award for the 27/28 season. Odonelec boasts a fierce shot, quick feet, solid aerial ability and he also isn't afraid of a physical confrontation. He earned the nickname «le fantôme» in Prahecq for his ability to find space and not be noticed by opposition defenders. He's an icon in the multicultural banlieue Clichy-sous-Bois after growing up there and playing for the club, taking them to UICA competitions and Coupe Prahecqoise victory in his time there. He was also arguably Mytanija's player of the tournament on their way to 4th at the most recent Copa Rushmori, he was the other Mytanar player named in GTV's unofficial team of the tournament. Scored 6 goals in 11 games in World Cup qualifying.

AMR/L: Boris Kalinic, 31, Workers Union [EUR]
40 caps, 8 goals
Long ignored by the national set-up, Kalinic is now a regular and one of only a handful of foreign-based players selected for the national pool. He's an extremely direct player, always looking to dribble at defenders when he's in possession and a useful goal scorer as proven by his output in the Euraleague down the years. His finishing with the national team has perhaps not been to the same standard but he has the ability to improve his scoring record for his country. He's not known for his desire to track back and get involved in the defensive side of the game but he's mostly being used to stay high up the pitch and maintain width to keep opposition defences stretched. Scored 4 goals in 12 games during World Cup qualification.

DMC: Branko Brkljacic, 30, Atletik Thessia [MYT]
49 caps, 0 goals
The defensive option who will be called upon if the team requires a switch to either a more considered approach. Brkljacic is a solid ball-playing defensive midfielder, he has well-rounded technical ability, with a good eye for a pass being something he utilises regularly as he sprays passes all over the pitch from his deep-lying midfield position. He also does the dirty side of the game effectively, able to win possession back through a combination of strength and dogged determination. He's a tough tackler and not averse to leaving one in on an opponent or tactically fouling if he feels it necessary. Plenty of experience to call upon, Brkljacic will be especially useful if Mytanija need to close out tight games.

MC: Mateja Stojkovic, 34, Ararat Severyan [MYT]
27 caps, 0 goals
Stojkovic is a tenacious central midfielder who has a good eye for a pass. He's lacking the physical capabilities that he had in his younger days and he has never been the trickiest player, he's extremely unlikely to beat an opponent with a flamboyant piece of skill. Stojkovic only made three appearances during World Cup qualification, but Repin has called upon him to add experience to this squad (already one of the most experienced Mytanija has put out in recent years), with Stojkovic being a player who can come on and calm the game down in the latter stages if necessary.

AML/MC: Dalibor Vlahovic, 27, Ararat Severyan [MYT]
24 caps, 5 goal
Although he's nominally expected to play in either a left-wing or attacking midfield role, Vlahovic's greatest skill is his versatility and Repin may see fit to use him in central midfield or as an auxiliary left-back if necessary. Vlahovic has played in all those positions and more and he's proven to be equally adept in pretty much all of them, whatever task he is assigned he generally completes adequately and that makes him a useful player for a national team to have. Given this versatility it is clear he is an all-rounder, there isn't really any particular aspect of his game that is lacking, though it is often difficult to pick one as standing out - he isn't as quick as the likes of Gajic, Kalinic or Gavrilovic but he's technically solid, able to dribble past an opponent and an excellent passer and crosser of the ball. Look for him to hit the occasional venomous long shot on goal too. He was a starter during much of World Cup qualifying - making 12 appearances and scoring 4 goals - but Repin has preferred Gavrilovic in the starting eleven for the Cup of Harmony. Vlahovic will provide extra cover in central midfield in this tournament.

AMR: Kemal Gajic, 22, Arka Snezhnaya [MYT]
7 caps, 4 goals
A true speedster down the right flank for his club side Gajic returned from a spell in Eura at Farrenton Athletic and is a huge part of an Arka Snezhnaya team that is in transition domestically. He was seen as an inconsistent young winger until his excellent performances during World Cup qualifying where he scored 4 goals in 7 appearances for the national side. He has added clinical finishing to his game and his speed will worry any defender - it is the hardest thing to defend against after all - and Gajic has plenty of time to deliver on his obvious potential.


ST/AMC: Jezdimir Ocokoljic, 27, Atletik Thessia [MYT]
76 caps, 40 goals
Ocokoljic has had a pretty unbelievable career and he's still only 27. He's a hero in Tsrvena after taking his boyhood team Crvena Zvezda to two league and cup doubles; he then moved to Nephara and became a club icon with Newrook City (somewhere he's reportedly open to returning to); now he's at the biggest Mytanar club in the form of Atletik Thessia and the team who play in sky blue will be hoping he can help them to glory in the coming years. His strike rate for the national team is at a clip not seen since Kristian Haugen played for the Hoops, a fact which identifies Ocokoljic as the country's top marksman and means he's a danger for all opposition defences. A good dribbler, he'll embarrass any opponents that look to give him particularly rough treatment with his quick feet and trickery. His finishing is pinpoint precise too and he's decent from free kicks for this reason as well. He's extremely adept at finding space, his off-the-ball movement makes him a nightmare to defend against. Ocokoljic has taken on an increased level of tactical importance with the national team in recent years with Repin's desire to play using a false nine and Ocokoljic will continue in that role in the hybrid 4-3-3/3-1-3-3 the coach has now settled on. Scored 5 goals in 11 qualifiers.

ST: Zlatan Andrijasevic, 25, Atletik Thessia [MYT]
23 caps, 11 goals
An impressive enough goalscoring record with the national team for Zlatan Andrijasevic, he may not get all that many chances to score but when he does he invariably puts the ball in the net. A valuable skill as a striker. He's a towering (196cm) centre forward who can more or less do everything. He's good in the air, has excellent composure and finishing and his movement can make him a menace for defenders. He's not too shabby with the ball at his feet, with some centre-halves being surprised how quickly he can move the ball when dribbling. He's also not frightened of moments of ingenuity either, something which is invaluable in top-level football and he's scored several improvised and acrobatic goals for club and country. Ideal as a different option in the 4-3-3 formation due to his hold-up play, scored 6 goals in 10 games during World Cup qualifying - all the more impressive considering this was mostly off the bench.

ST: Dejan Zgela, 25, CDSA [MYT]
11 caps, 4 goals
Zgela is a more squat, stocky version of Jezdimir Ocokoljic. He likes to drop deep in order to receive the ball and then turn and dribble at pace at defenders and he's excellent at linking-up play between midfield and attack as a result. Useful tactically due to his education at CDSA, renowned as one of the best academies when it comes to that side of the game. Zgela is versatile and able to play as an old-fashioned striker, a false nine, a trequartista or in several other roles and that's why he's a favourite of Lev Repin.


Mytanija employ a wide-range of formations dependent on different situations within each game, players are taught different tactical ideas from an early age in Mytanar academies and it leads to flexible players who can slot into a wide-range of systems fairly comfortably. During this World Cup qualification cycle Mytanija's default formation will be the 4-3-3/3-1-3-3 hybrid used to good effect during World Cup qualifying, but they may switch to a 4-6-0, 4-2-3-1, a 4-3-1-2 or 5-3-2 dependent on the opposition and the game state. I shall try to detail here the different scenarios which will lead to a change of formation. Please don't hesitate to either TG me on here or direct message me on the NS Sports Discord if you have any questions about Mytanija's tactics, whether it be the underlying principles/theory for each one; personnel for different formations; or if you just want to shoot the breeze about different tactical ideas.
Image

The 4-3-3/3-1-3-3 hybrid is split into defensive shape (4-3-3) and attacking shape (3-1-3-3), this obviously depends on whether Mytanija has possession of the ball or not. Out of possession, the team will retreat into a fairly standard 4-3-3 formation. The back four will defend across the width of their penalty area, any deviance from that distance will result in Mojmir Anac berating whoever it is that has moved out of that line. Defensively the team will try to keep the distance between each player as consistent as possible so that no one player has to defend large spaces by themselves. In front of the back four will be Alen Hrdaljko and Tahir Fejzuli, they will be directly in front of Mytanija's pair of central defenders and mostly look to prevent through balls into the space in front of the central defenders and engage any players who look to dribble into the space that they are occupying. Against some teams they may press the opposition, but if this happens only one will do so at any one time. The majority of the pressing is left to Jasno Odonelec who will cover the space in front of Hrdaljko and Fejzuli; as well as Jezdimir Ocokoljic who will take on the brunt of this. The team's wingers will mostly track the opposition's full-backs, but if the opposition don't tend to use their full-backs as attacking options then Mytanija's wingers will press and tuck-in (ie. one winger will press when possession is on his side of the pitch; the other will tuck-in on the opposite side to allow the Mytanar midfield to shift across the pitch to focus the defensive effort on the side of the pitch that the ball is on).

When Mytanija regain possession, the formation will change from the defensive shape of the 4-3-3 into the attacking shape of the 3-1-3-3. This will generally mean Grigorij Savicevic shifting across to the left slightly from his left-sided centre-back position, with Mojmir Anac occupying a position in the centre of a back three with Petr Isaev coming inside slightly from right-back. This back three will usually play quite high up the pitch to try and catch the opponent's forwards offside, relying particularly on Anac's pace to recover if the opposition succeed in breaking the offside trap. Ahead of them Alen Hrdaljko will act as a defensive shield slash midfield conductor, he'll mostly recycle possession but if Mytanija lose the ball he'll be there to (hopefully) put out any fires before they reach the defensive trio - who in turn are there as a three to add that little extra layer of protection than just your usual two central defenders. This extra layer of protection is necessary because nominal left-back Srdan Vukovic has been given a roving brief as something of a number 8/10 on the left of three central-attacking midfielders, with Jasno Odonelec in the centre and Fejzuli on the right of this three. They will largely be looking to operate in the gaps between the opposition's midfielders and also between their midfielders and defenders. This formation is about trying to overload certain areas of the pitch when Mytanija have the ball and Vukovic's presence in attacking midfield areas is demonstrative of this. The team's wingers will stay wide to try and keep the opposition full-backs wide, leaving space in between the full-backs and centre-backs for the likes of Vukovic, Odonelec, Fejzuli and Ocokoljic to exploit. Similarly Ocokoljic will operate as a false nine and regularly drop deep to try and drag the opponent's centre-backs out of position, with the space they vacate when following Ocokoljic hopefully being exploited by the wingers and Odonelec. On the right is a rough example of how this formation will appear when Mytanija are in possession.

If you have any questions or queries regarding Mytanija's tactics or in-game substitutions because you want to include information about them in an RP, please do not hesitate to contact me and I will endeavour to respond to clear them up.


TEAM ROLES
Captaincy: Petr Isaev is the team's captain and most-capped player. Following a string of influential performances Jasno Odonelec has been elevated to the position of vice-captain, a decision which has been welcomed by much of the squad given his popularity. If neither of them are on the pitch the captaincy would pass onto the likes of Pedja Kasun or Mojmir Anac, beyond them it will usually be the player with the most caps on the pitch.
Penalties: Odonelec is now the team's first-choice penalty taker, after than the responsibility would fall to Ocokoljic. In a penalty shoot-out the order would be something like: Odonelec, Ocokoljic, Hrdaljko, Fejzuli, Anac; then the likes of Andrijasevic, Vlahovic, Vukovic, Brkljacic would come after or replace those they are substituted for if they are on the pitch.
Corners: Essentially anyone I've noted as a good passer or crosser of the ball: Fejzuli, Kalinic, Odonelec (who will begrudge taking them due to him being a reasonable aerial threat), Vukovic etc.
Short free kicks: Ocokoljic or Fejzuli, basically. Ocokoljic is more likely to take them from the left as he's right-footed and Fejzuli more likely from the right as he's left-footed. Odonelec would be next choice and Branko Brkljacic would offer a different method of taking it which mainly involves just hitting the ball as hard as he possibly can. If none of those are on the pitch, the likes of Kalinic or Vukovic are options. Failing that pick someone at random.
Long free kicks: Usually whoever's playing at left-back or right-back will take our long free kicks and try and punt it into the box and take advantage of having quite a tall team.

NOTES:
• Lev Repin (aged 51), is the Mytanar national team manager and has been in the role for one World Cup cycle and a Copa Rushmori. Repin is a Mytanar footballing legend and played for the national side 177 times, scoring 14 goals from full back, winning Copa Rushmori XVII and Cup of Harmony 56 and 59 along the way. He managed the under-21 squad at the Di Bradini Cup and took them to a runners-up finish. Repin is known as a bit of a schemer tactically and this was evidenced during qualification for World Cup 82; he also led the team to a 3rd placed finish at the 32nd Copa Rushmori in Qusmo and a 4th placed finish at the 36th Copa Rushmori held in Græntfjall and Tikariot. In qualifying for World Cup 87 he led Mytanija to an unexpected 4th place, only narrowly missing out on qualification despite being unranked heading into the cycle.

• Mytanija has qualified to 11 World Cups, reaching the quarter finals in World Cup 68. Mytanija has won the Copa Rushmori once (XVII), to go with two victories in the Cup of Harmony (56 and 59); and a Di Bradini Cup win (DBC40). Some of these achievements were made under the names Mytannion/the Mytanar Region, Mytanija is ICly the exact same place.

• Mytanars are renowned for being passionate and therefore will not be afraid of confrontation if they feel they're on the end of a particularly rough tackle. At the same time Mytanars are not afraid of gamesmanship and may perform some questionable tackles of their own, along with tactical fouls to prevent the opponent from gaining momentum. Furthermore, diving, crowding referees and even intentional handballs (OOC: so Maradona's Hand of God and Suarez for Uruguay versus Ghana, that sort of stuff), to influence the game are not beyond Mytanar players. They will argue that winning is the most important thing and will do anything they can to achieve victory. Some might call it dirty, Mytanars don't, that won't stop them complaining when things go against them naturally.

• Mytanar fans are well-known for being hooligans, causing problems wherever they go and being prone to violence. They also make outstanding choreographies for their domestic sides and occasionally the national team (if they aren't fighting each other), so pyrotechnics, flags and lots of noise and alcohol are common place. Corteos (organised marches from a specific place to the stadium), are also common, these can lead to areas being shutdown as the sheer numbers of fans walking along roads block traffic and can lead to issues as police attempt to marshal supporters too. Given the ongoing political situation in Mytanija, whether ultra groups are able to put aside differences regarding politics, ethnicity etc for the national side is a pertinent question and the answer to it may change even from game to game.

TEAM HAPILOPPER
Full Nation Name: The Dominion of Hapilopper
Trigramme: HAP
Nickname: The Haps
Team Colors: Blue, Green and White

Info:
The Hapilopper National Football Team, as we know it, is dead. The Hapilopper Football Association is on life support, the result of a match-fixing scandal that made itself known during the 61st AOCAF. As a result, a new organization led by former HFA head Dominic Probst has been formed for the purpose of fielding a team in international competition. The organization, tentatively known as "Team Hapilopper," consists of a good number of former international team players - primarily those that opposed the match-fixing scheme and those that remained neutral in the matter. Former head coach Thom Perkins, who departed the team after the 84th World Cup, has been brought in as Team Hapilopper's first head coach. Buddy Martinez, who coached the HNFT during the World Cup 85 debacle, has agreed to take the assistant coach position. The team will rely on the 4-4-2 formation. The good news for Team Hapilopper, though, is it appears to be off to a good start.

(Pictured: Capital Stadium in gridiron configuration)
Capital Stadium, Hapilopper's de facto national stadium, is the last of Hapilopper's classic cookie-cutter venues, used for a variety of applications, including the Hapilopper City Nationals baseball team, the Hapilopper National Baseball Team and is the home of Team Hapilopper. As is custom with cookie-cutter stadiums, the park is completely symmetrical and is surrounded by multiple decks of stands, typically filled with screaming fans when the home team is doing well. Back in the 1970s, the HC Nationals, and their vaunted "National Machine" dominated Hapiloppian baseball, and brought over four million fans through the turnstiles on six occasions. Hapiloppian fans have vowed to come to Capital Stadium in force for TF games. Typically, Hapiloppian fans, including the members of the "Traveling Thrashers" supporters group are among the wildest fans in sport, and promise to be exactly that for the World Cup. Expect to see fans dancing along to 1970s funk music, slamming drums as loudly as possible, waving their flags, and throwing streamers for every Hapiloppian goal.

Uniforms:

Image Image
Top Row: The team's primary kit
Bottom Row: The team's goalkeeper's kit.

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


(Please note: If players have been transferred to other clubs, please let me know so I can keep this current.)
STARTING PLAYERS:
Image
#1 - COOTER HARRIS - Goalkeeper/Sweeper-Keeper - Northshore FC (Xanneria)
Cooter Harris, the first hero of international Hapiloppian sports, has been brought back as the starting goalkeeper for Team Hapilopper. Harris, unfortunately, is still known internationally for his meltdown after the infamous "Manehattan Massacre" when the dominant team from the Equestrian States came out and ran up the score on the Haps. Harris left the team soon after, and was shopped off - at a painfully low price - to Northshore FC in Xanneria, where he had a career renaissance of sorts. In fact, there appeared to be large pressure to get him to start a match or two at keeper during the World Cup 85 qualifiers, something that reportedly didn't happen because of meddling from HFA head Max Greenwell.




Image
#2 - CLIVE BLACKBURN - Defenseman/Left Wingback - Hapilopper City Soldiers
Clive Blackburn, a longtime bench player for the Hapilopper National Football Team, has been rewarded for his patience with a starting defense position for this World Cup campaign. He's also one of the oldest on the team, at 31 years old. His defense work might now stand out quite so much as, say, Nate Ellis, but he'll fight for position about as effectively as anyone in Hapiloppian football. Away from the pitch, Blackburn's family is known for its farm, one of the finest chicken farms in all of Hapilopper. Blackburn Farms Chicken is one of the more popular chicken brands you can find in Hapiloppian supermarkets.




Image
#3 - COLIN McLAIN - Defenseman/Right Wingback - Hapilopper City Highway Patrol
At one point, Colin McLain was considered one of the hardest-hitting players in Hapiloppian football, and was known for his rivalry with Ernie Stevenson. But he's faded to the background as other, more controversial players, have taken the attention. Nevertheless, McLain is still a very physical defender, and has helped Highway Patrol stop offensive efforts with his tackling with impunity.




Image
#4 - PAUL DIBBLE - Defenseman/Defensive Sweeper - Juavi FC (Valanora)
Regaining his starting position with Team Hapilopper as a result of Fernie Fairburn's involvement in the match-fixing scheme, Paul Dibble and his all-out style of play will be a key piece of Team Hapilopper's defense. Paul Dibble is a fantastic defensive player. He'll make sure you know that. Unfortunately, his all-out style of play, which has put him in card trouble in the past, and injury trouble as well - has started to take its toll, and his reliability is a question mark. Away from the pitch, Dibble plays bass guitar for "The Yellow Cards," a band that is not high on Dom Probst's list after their song "Fuck Jed Onkel," a power ballad decrying an unpopular Hapiloppian referee, became a hit. The song became so popular that fans at stadiums across Hapilopper chanted the chorus to the song any time Onkel refereed a match.




Image
#5 - NATE ELLIS - Defenseman/Centerback Stopper - Southfell United (Nephara)
The most accurate term to describe Nathan Ellis, at this point in time, is "madder than hell." Ellis, the resident homicidal maniac of Team Hapilopper, returns to his starting position in centerback for the team. One of the most vocal opponents of the match-fixing scheme, Ellis faced down Rod Hughes, the ringleader of the scheme, in a locker room during the last AOCAF, which eventually led to the public learning of the scheme, and the death of the HNFT. Ellis, considered "the most likely to start a riot in another nation" for his violent antics, is believed to have also been behind a violent incident during the 86th World Cup involving his good buddy, Alexis Fotellis of Vdara. But nobody's talking...




Image
#6 - PANCAKES TAGGART - Midfielder - Capital City United
Pancakes got a starting spot back! Pancakes Taggart, one of the Hapilopper National Football Team's original players, has returned to the midfield for Team Hapilopper. Pancakes, one of the more popular players among Hapiloppian fans, got overlooked in the face of players such as Auggie Burton, Fernie Fairburn and others. Nevertheless, Pancakes remained a reliable hand on the Hapilopper teams, and has been rewarded for his persistence. Taggart got his nickname after eating 25 pancakes in one hour at an International House of Flapjacks on the outskirts of Hapilopper City, and is rumored to be purchasing the chain.




Image
#7 - AUGGIE BURTON - Midfielder - Capital FC (Xanneria)
August "Auggie" Burton, not long ago, was one of the members of the Junior Haps that joined the HNFT following some incredible performances in that Di Bradini Cup that the Haps nearly won. Auggie got a starting position off that performance, a position he got to keep based off his performance in the qualifying phase of World Cup 84. Still considered one of the top rising young stars in Hapiloppian sport, a player expected to be among Hapilopper's elite for years to come, even as he plays in Xanneria.




Image
#8 - MURRAY HUNNISETT - Midfielder - Istria City FC (Banija)
Murray Hunnisett, the younger brother of baseball star Leroy, became known a year ago for being one of the "Hapilopper Ten" that got picked up by an international team. Both the Hunnisett brothers now call Banija, a fellow Glorious Southwest nation, home these days. He still remains one of the key pieces of Team Hapilopper and a crucial piece of the national team's midfield. With formation changes, Murray is expected to fire shots to Claire Randall on the left side in most situations. Away from the pitch, when he's back in Hapilopper City, Hunnisett is known as a ride-share driver on the “Mega” rideshare service around Hapilopper City, benefitting the “Drink, Drive and Die” campaign to stop drunk drivers in Hapilopper.




Image
#9 - BEAUTIFUL BOBBY EAST - Midfielder - FC Kaiserhaven (Siovanija and Teusland)
Beautiful Bobby East, the quiet attacking midfielder, became a folk hero among FC Kaiserhaven fans. In years past, Beautiful Bobby was the last step of the equation before firing it off to Ernie Stevenson for the inevitable goal. He'll still do so but on the right side of the pitch in most situations. Bobby is known as one of the nicest people in Hapiloppian sport, and teammates have told tales of him paying for everybody's dinner, even when not asked to. Believed to be headed to another club team before long.




Image
#10 - CLAIRE RANDALL - Forward - Clayton City Ladies FC (Baker Park)
The first woman to play on a Hapiloppian national team, Claire Randall made her name for herself during that magical run in the Di Bradini Cup not too long ago, and practically forced the Hapilopper National Football Team to consider her as a part of their squad. In fact, her play was so good that the team decided to go with two attackers rather than the one they had been used to using. She'll split the bulk of the goals with Ernie Stevenson. Formerly in a relationship with NSSCRA driver Chris Holmes, the two split up when Claire tired of Chris's juvenile behavior.




Image
#11 - ERNIE STEVENSON - Forward - Leichhardt (Nephara)
Perhaps the most famous Hapiloppian player in international football, Ernie Stevenson helped put the Haps on the map during the World Cup 83 cycle with goal after goal. While one of the flashiest strikers in international football, perhaps Ernie could cut down on his theatrics. In a lopsided match for Leichhardt against Sabrefell Athletic, Ernie scored a hat-trick. Only one problem: Sabrefell Athletic had already scored seven goals at that point, and when Ernie celebrated his hat trick, he was hilariously chased down by Leichhardt manager Lara Winter, who whipped him repeatedly with her jacket, a scene that became a viral video in Hapilopper. Ernie is the younger brother of NSSCRA driver Drake Stevenson, himself one of the most popular sporting figures in the Dominion.




BENCH PLAYERS:
Image
#12 - JOHN CORNETT - Forward - Gladerial United (Valanora)
John Cornett, Gladerial United's ill-tempered striker, was at one point a member of Garvinson's "Midnight Express" trio. Bobby East and Stan Long would fire shots to Cornett, who would put them in the back of the net with impunity. Cornett, however, is also known for fits of extreme anger. Several years ago, Cornett was suspended for half the season for threatening to use a broken beer bottle on a referee. Rumors also exist of a video of Cornett threatening a drive-through worker of a Fat Chuck’s Tasty Fried Chicken restaurant. Rumors exist of some kind of emnity between Cornett and Swindlehurst, an emnity that did not go away with the enforced break that Hapiloppian footballers went on.




Image
#14 - JULES SCHMIDT - Forward - West Hampton Sports Club
Jules "Bug-Eyed Dummy" Schmidt is one of several first-timers on Team Hapilopper. Schmidt, known for his wide eyes, was given the name "Bug-Eyed Dummy" by North Hampton goalkeeper Eric Marlin, who was frustrated over giving up a late goal in a North Hampton/WHSC match. The name stuck among fans, even in spite of the fact that Jules is not all that big of a fan of the name. Nevertheless, Jules is greeted with huge "BUG EYED DUMMY" banners in the supporters section of WHSC home matches. Eventually he's going to just live with the name, you know?




Image
#15 - SWEET STAN LONG - Midfielder - United Marietta (Xanneria)
In a past life, Stan Long was one-third of Garvinson's "Midnight Express" trio, along with Bobby East and John Cornett, that helped propel Garvinson to the top of the HFA table, before getting sold off in a fire sale post-season. These days, he plays for Xannerian side United Marietta. Reportedly has a black belt in karate.




Image
#16 - STEVE SWINDLEHURST - Midfielder - Raceway Football Club
Steve Swindlehurst, who can be placed anywhere ahead of the midpoint of the field, is a strong midfielder for Raceway Football Club in Buckridge. Swindlehurst is known for one of the luckiest goals in HFA history, scoring from 55 yards out when no one was paying attention in a match a few years ago. Reportedly has some kind of enmity with John Cornett over an unspecified incident that for one reason or another, nobody's going into details about.




Image
#17 - STEVE ERICKSON - Midfielder - 1830 Cathair (Audioslavia)
With the change in formations, Steve Erickson, the playmaking midfielder and striker for Audioslavian side 1830 Cathair, got the shaft from the HNFT and was relegated to a bench role. Erickson wasn't too happy about it, but some suggested that Erickson's tendency to "simulate" injuries - or, in other words, flop like a jackass, something that HFA officials have vowed to stamp out - cost him his starting position. In spite of his flopping nature, Erickson has made it quite clear that he was opposed to any match-fixing scheme, stating his "simulation" was done in an effort to give his team a needed boost.




Image
#18 - TODD BRANTLEY - Midfielder - West Hampton Sports Club
29-year old Todd Brantley, a key piece of the West Hampton Sports Club's midfield, was a late addition to the squad following an injury to Brandon Herbert during a training session. Brantley is also a goal-scoring threat and scored nine goals last year for WHSC. An avid car collector, Brantley's collection includes a 1942 Preston Phaeton convertible, one of five ever built, and an unusual 1985 Preston Skychief shooting brake. Supposedly, Brantley also moonlights as an occasional motorsport photographer, getting some great pictures for a local newspaper in the Hampton Cities showing the rough and tumble world of racing in the area.




Image
#19 - LANDON HARPER - Defenseman - Hapilopper City Generals
If you've ever had a tough time sleeping, chances are you've gone on twii.tur in an attempt to knock yourself asleep. As you look through twii.tur, you see some strange guy posting some whack memes that wind up going viral the next day, and everyone calls that guy "funny as hell." You've just found the wild world of Landon Harper, defenseman for the Hapilopper City Generals. One of the most popular players among the Generals team for his memes, Landon is, regardless of whatever he posts on twii.tur and on other social media sites, one of the top rising defensemen in Hapilopper. He'll stop an offensive effort with great physical play, but not to the point where he's putting people in the hospital.




Image
#20 - BILLY HUTSON - Defenseman - United Hampton Cities
A rookie on the United Hampton Cities team, Billy Hutson could potentially be considered "the most physical player this side of Nate Ellis," which is incredibly concerning, if you consider who he's being compared to. In his first season, Hutson made his mark in a very vicious way by suplexing Clive Blackburn of Capital City United, as he was on his way to scoring a goal. Hutson was sent off, but the point was made. When Billy walked under the tunnel, he fired off two middle fingers to the fans of Capital City United, who responded by hurling debris at their new villain. At 18 years old, Hutson could wind up being one of the great villains of Hapiloppian sport for years to come. Watch this space.




Image
#21 - CARL WAKEFIELD - Defenseman - Washington FC
One of several new players on Team Hapilopper, Carl Wakefield was an interesting choice. It's not as if he's homicidally violent like Nate Ellis or Billy Hutson, and it's not like he's all that popular like other players. Carl is just there. But he gets the job done, working to stop offensive efforts against Washington FC. Likely may not see much playing time as other players are put on that bench role to sub off defense players.




Image
#22 - RANDY LYNWOOD - Defenseman - Raceway FC
You smell that? That smell of burgers on the grill? That's probably Randy Lynwood, defenseman for Raceway FC, one of several first-time players on Team Hapilopper. Lynwood is one of the best rising defensemen in international football, and at 20 years old, many suggest the future is boundless for him. But away from the pitch, Lynwood is one of the best barbecue experts in sports. Burgers? Sure. Pulled pork? Absolutely. Chicken? Hell yeah. Some suggest he'll be opening his own restaurant when his playing career comes to an end, as he loves food just as much as he loves playing the game of football. And you can tell, too - Lynwood is one of the beefier players in Hapilopper.




Image
#30 - COLT DELANEY - Goalkeeper - West Hampton Sports Club
Colt Delaney has been, surprisingly, on a Hapilopper national team since the start, but has seen very little playtime in those years since Hapilopper started playing international football. A lot of this is due to injuries. Last season, playing for WHSC, Colt was accidentally kicked in the head by Highway Patrol forward Rufus Weeks, and the ensuing concussion ended his season. Nevertheless, he is still a very efficient goalkeeper, registering one goal per 105 minutes of play.




Image
#60 - ERIC MARLIN - Goalkeeper - North Hampton FC
The new third keeper for Team Hapilopper, Marlin been listed as #4 on the HNFT's depth charts behind Rod Hughes, Cooter Harris and Colt Delaney. With Rod being declared persona non grata as a result of the HFA's match fixing scandal, Eric was brought in to replace. A five-year veteran at keeper for the North Hampton Football Club, Marlin is known for his very entertaining post-match interviews, which some Hapiloppian sports pundits have suggested "need subtitles" and are known for his very colorful descriptions of what happened on the pitch - such as the time he infamously called forward Jules Schmidt "a bug-eyed dummy". The name stuck, too.

The Wreckerian National Football Team
Image

Full nation name: The Reformed Republic of Wreckeria
Trigramme: WRE
Nicknames: The Bulldogs
Team Colors: Orange and Black

Info:
A few years ago, the Reformed Republic of Wreckeria came out of the woodwork to start participating in international football. And they did decently well, finishing midpack in its first two World Cup qualifying efforts. But then, Wreckeria's economy collapsed, owing largely to the nation's failed Olympic effort that it attempted to share with Hapilopper. Wreckeria withdrew from World Cup 86 as financial difficulties loomed large, and the team is now attempting to mount a comeback. The team consists largely of the same core from the World Cups 84-85 squad, with very little changes over the last few years, and has some forward momentum going its way. The side recently won the first running of The National, the Xannerian football tournament, which involved seven very strong sides.

MANAGER/HEAD COACH: Marvin Byrnes
Byrnes, 38, attempted to present football as a way to unite Wreckeria and get away from the decades of violence and infighting that has plagued the nation. Byrnes, who used to play for Sporting Milwood Town before the Wreckerian Premier League collapsed 10 years ago, was a star striker for the team. Now, he's just hoping his fellow Wreckerians can pull off a miracle. Byrnes will focus on a neutral style of play, and will rely on the 3-4-3 formation for most of the time.

Byrnes' staff includes:
ASSISTANT MANAGER: Abner Crewe
ASSISTANT COACH: Nick Donaldson
GOALKEEPING COACH: Quentin Joyner
TRAINER: Charlie Garner
TECHNICAL DIRECTOR: Darrell Glazier
PHYSIO: Robert Fry

The Fans:
A small group of Wreckerians have vowed to make the trip to whatever nation will play host to the Bulldogs. There's not many of them, but they're passionate and want to present as positive image of their land as they can. They'll be there to cheer on their fellow Wreckerians, some of whom they fought in battles with. While Wreckerians will want to present as positive of a picture of their nation as possible, they do like to have fun, and they look to make your tournament as enjoyable as possible.


The Players:
(Starting players in green, typical subs in red)
GOALKEEPERS:
## POS Player
1 GOL Harold Leslie
21 GOL Florence Northrop
22 GOL Carey Atwater

The goalkeeping squad is led by Harold Leslie, a native of the capital city of Halsted. Leslie was found by the Wreckerian Association of Soccer in a pick-up game of soccer with his friends, when he was seen fending off the challenges of a number of attackers. Leslie's close friends, Florence Northrop and Carey Atwater were signed as well.

DEFENDERS:
## POS Player
2 DEF Scott Murphy
3 DEF Cash Brewster
4 DEF Aaron Boatwright

12 DEF Emerson Danielson
13 DEF Francis Hayward

14 DEF Hayden Derryhouse

Scott Murphy, a native of Minortown, was picked up by the WAS after ruthlessly taking down several attackers in a pick-up game. Brewster, a native of Halsted, was a member of the HFA team from Pinkerton in Hapilopper for four years. Boatwright, meanwhile, has played on a number of amateur soccer teams in Wreckeria for about a decade or so. Said to a pretty decent individual.

MIDFIELDERS:
## POS Player
5 MID Mike Hamilton
6 MID Gerald Heath
7 MID Sig Justice
8 MID Cale Wyatt

15 MID Sid Clifton
16 MID Riley Pratt

17 MID Kelsey Camerson

Michael Hamilton and Gerald Heath are defensive midfielders, while Sig Justice and Cale Wyatt are the team's offensive midfielders. All four are top amateur players in Wreckeria. Sig Justice is rumored to be a huge fan of softball and has been rumored to skip out on league matches to play softball. Sig denies these rumors.

FORWARDS:
## POS Player
9 FWD Claude Tindall
10 FWD Darcy Carman
11 FWD Oliver Bloxam

18 FWD Scott Boatwright
19 FWD Hunter Bell

20 FWD Viv McKinley

Claude Tindall, Darcy Carman and Oliver Bloxam were picked as the team's leading forwards after a shoot-out with the other forwards on the team. All six players could concievably start at one point or another. Boatwright, who is not related to Aaron Boatwright, will likely sub with Hunter Bell.

Style Mod: +1

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

Godmod scoring events: No
RP injuries to my players: Yes, but TG me if you want to do something serious
Godmod injuries to my players: TG me first, or ping me on the NS Sports Discord, and we'll talk about it
Hand out yellow cards to my players: Yes
Hand out red cards to my players: TG me first, or ping me on the NS Sports Discord, and we'll talk about it

RP Coronavirus-related events: No. There is no pandemic in Wreckeria nor will there be.

CHARTISTANI NATIONAL TEAM
Squad for the 79th Cup of Harmony


About Chartistan

The Musicalistic Union of the Cities of Chartistan (Often just Chartistan) is a nation in the region of Sonnel. The capital city, Billboard, is where most of the residents live and work, and is also home to the main governing jurisdiction of the country. Other major cities include Official City, Gaon and Aria.

About the National Team

The Chartistani national team picture varies from week to week as do the Chartistani... Charts. The Chartistani NT was decided by this week's Chartistani Hot Chart, a 100 player index of the top players in Chartistan, the Bubbling Under Hot Chart, a 25 player index of up and comers, and whatever other chart we could find.

The main Chartistani home kit is purple with blue accents, while the away kit is mostly black.

Manager: Doctor Lucas Combbrush
A Musicville district citizen of Chartistan's largest city Billboard, Doctor Combbrush has been inside and outside the game of football for the last couple of years as a player and a manager. He did not have the best of luck at the World Cup qualifiers (Even if he pulled some miracle performances against Zwangzug and Savojarna), but he will press forward and give Chartistan something to cheer about at the Cup of Harmony.

Team Mapletish for Cup of Harmony 79

TEAM MAPLETISH FOR CUP OF HARMONY 79
Nation Name: The Mapletia Unida of Mapletish
Demonym: Maplish/Mapletian
Team Nickname: The Dragons/The Minnows
The Supporters: The Fierykop

HOME STADIUM:
Rosfield Stadium - 102,611

The Buio'Dzz
Before every match, the team members (including the designated substitutes for the match) will perform a traditional ritual, called the Buio'Dzz on the pitch just before play begins. The Buio'Dzz performed by the Maplish sports teams are from the Mapli-ane, one of the largest aboriginal groups in Mapletish. The Buio'Dzz originated from the sun god, Inaka, a Mapli-ane creation. To celebrate the birth of his son Arone, Inaka broke into a dance while humming a poem to celebrate the occasion. This continued to be the foundation of all tribe dances done by the Maplish aboriginals. The Buio'Dzz is just one of the many tribe war dances from the aboriginals of Mapletish. It is meant to awe and to challenge their opponents in the sports context today. This is similar to the [RL] New Zealanders' haka before their matches. It is performed by a group of people, with intensity and vigour. Actions are performed rhythmically including foot-stamping, tongue protrusions, rhythmic body slapping, clapping of the hands, and an accompaniment of shouting in the aboriginal dialect, which may represent tribal poems passed down from the ancestors of the particular tribe, or a poem that marks the events of a particular tribe. This ceremonial dance ritual also fulfills social functions such as weddings, funerals and celebration of great achievements, occasions, other than the anticipation of war from its earlier intentions. This would be performed unless the hosts of the match in question object to the ritual.

Simple Procedural Notes
Following the dispute between the RFAM and the Mapletish Board of Sports Organisations (MBSO), the relatively unknown Bernhard Floris took on the helms for the team representing Mapletish for multiverse football. The team is made up of semi-professional and amateur young players who were selected and called up by Floris. This is so as the current stance by the MBSO was to not send any of their professional players to participate in national team competitions. The current head coach, Floris, has had two competitions under his belt so far, the Di Bradini Cup 49 and the World Cup 87 Qualifying campaign. Against all odds, the young team finished 6th out of 10 teams in Group 19 of WCQ 87, maintaining a 6-5-7 record, taking points from group strongholds, Eura, Port Ember, Natanians and Nosts and Siovanija & Teusland. Evidently, it has shown that the ultra defensive stance employed by Floris has bore fruit throughout the WCQ 87. Additional emphasis is also taken on keeping the team structure and rigidity with a focus on team work through out the qualifying campaign. All efforts paid off for both Floris and his team as they qualify for the Cup of Harmony 79.

BACKROOM STAFF
Head Coach: Bernhard Floris, 40
A particularly unknown coach from Mapletish or probably he could be someone from the National Academy, who knows? Rumours has it that this 40 year old is a full time artist, enjoys tennis, is obsessed with cosplaying, helping the elderly across the road and reading. I don't know about the genre of his books though. Such quirky character but nothing beats his generosity and creativity. Perhaps that is all you need? Especially when dealing with young adults and teenagers who aren't the particularly "tough" or "headstrong" as the older generations might put that out as. Having grew up in a working class neighbourhood, he sure knows what being tough means. Physically, slightly overweight but otherwise in in good shape? So what does this have to do with sport? Maybe he was eyeing for a mid-career switch and found himself taking the helms. But all that can be said for this middle age man is that he really knows his stuff.

Assistant Coach: Sylvanus Cherokee, 37
An arrogant, talkative and headstrong assistant, Cherokee is vastly on the opposite end of Floris. 3 years his junior, Cherokee seems to be a little more in tune with his sporting/athletic background than Floris. Finally not another full time artist taking a mid career switch, oh Floris. Whlist, one can describe Floris' training methods as benevolent, or in other words, go easy on you when you reach your objectives for the session. Little can be said about Cherokee. Unsparing in his methods? How do we phrase this? Unprogressive? Growing up in a upper class neighbourhood, he sure knows what being tough means. Or however the opposite to what Floris means. Little is known how will this combination work but one can see some obstacles in their partnership on a fundamental level already, but maybe football is the one which breaks boundaries, with football as the common language.

PLAYERS:
#1 - GK - Malcolm Meade - Age 20 - No Club/ National Football Academy
Floris dug deep in his connections and went straight to the Royal Mapletish Armed Forces Sports Association or RMAFSA, and picking up a goalkeeper on the way in the name of Meade. Meade finished his conscription service in the RMAF during the World Cup qualifying campaign and spent his last few months in the Maplish military ambically taking a leave of absence to play for the Maplish team for the World Cup qualifying. Back then, Floris under the name of the RFAM made a special trip down down South in fact to grab hold of the Army's football team starting goalkeeper. Meade is currently not looking to play professional football just yet, having had no clubs knocking on his door. That however isn't too much of a concern for Meade as he can look to join one of the University/ College teams which provides fair competition in the annual University Cup. He joined the National Football Academy after his the end of his conscription service. Meade is known or perhaps rumoured to be committed and highly composed in goal, coupled with quick reflexes through repeated conditioning rather than a naturally lower reaction time and reflex action.

#2 - DL - Arin Elton - Age 20 - No Club/ National Football Academy
Deliberating between whether to be a full back or a wing back, Elton is another option in Floris' toolkit. Versaitility in both allowed Floris to pick a relatively fluid formation for the squad in fact. An imposing player in fact, capable of tracking wide attacking players and delivering heavy body checks to get the attackers off the ball, he is also quick to return the attacking favour with speedy runs down the left flank, something which has been proven useful with a short tenure in his high school's track and field team. A 400m sprinter in fact, we can see how the need for repeated bouts of effort translates to a more sprinting outfit like Elton. However, the ability to catch the initial outbursts of speed in bringing the ball allows room for acceleration for the Dragons as Elton is also the centre of the counter attacking outfit, amidst, with minimal effect.

#3 - DC - Ivan Dwight - Age 20 - No Club/ National Football Academy
Dwight is considered rather old fashion as compared to his mate, Elton in the left flank. Sitting back and cautious towards going in front, he holds his position, sometimes a little too deeply, acting like a sweeper instead. Finding accurate long balls to the advancing attackers, is his offensive quality amongst the traditional toolkit of a defender. Tough tackles, maybe vital, maybe uncalled for, especially sliding tackles. But, that probably shows the determination and desire to win balls. Another plus point. Gets a little nervous to play sharp passes to his teammates when under pressure but that doesn't stop his pinpoint accurate long passes out to his offensive players. Something for Floris to take note, which one can be sure Floris has it taken down on his notebook, way earlier than any fans can take notice of.

#4 - DC - Raphael Singer - Age 20 - Balmope Betis
The only club that allowed their player to leave its youth outfit, Balmope Betis. Not be to confused with Raphael Sieger, the DBC 43 winner with his defensive partner Barnabas Hugo, hey now does that remind you of Hermanus Hugo? I'm sure you do, so many names, so many iterations, so confusing. Singer is similar to Sieger, his Balmope Betis senior in many aspects, aiming to form a partnership with his center defender partner Dwight, like how Sieger forms a partnership with Hugo, having great technique and loves a good nutmeg against his opponents, while trying to display, demonstrate or perform acts of flair with the ball against his opponents. Floris would have hope that Singer can be a key man in bringing in the attack together with his left flank counterpart Elton, maybe winning the ball and setting Elton up? Or to get the ball over to Dwight to deal that long cross, lob, sniped shot pass over to any offensive player there is out there. Not the opponents, that is. Never left alone without his guitar, Singer lives up to his name. Indeed he is a singer. In a recent podcast interview with Timothy Jozua, he revealed his interest and desire to advance his music path together with pursuing football. Another quirk he likes to throw around, a good argument.

#5 - DR - Randolf Tijs - Age 20 - No Club/ National Football Academy
Out of the 4 defenders on the pitch, the toughest tackler will definitely be Tijs. And tackling goes beyond just using your legs to take the ball out, it involves taking your opponent out, and probably getting them below the shoulders and above the waist, yes you heard that right, or maybe a single leg takedown or double leg takedown right there. Tijs was condemned for playing too much football when his only obligation was to be taking fights in the rink, oh I meant ring, or probably the octagon, or pentagon, however the sides to that fighting ring. Probably because of his mixed martial arts background, a keen muay-thai and judo practitioner and some field skills from rugby, culminates in his combative style of play. Tijs, though might have seen the better of the referee books by keeping himself out of them for as many matches that he has played thus far, though. A good temperament? A humbled soul? Or maybe just some rule abiding?

#6 - CM - Austin Sonnie - Age 20 - No Club/ National Football Academy
A top base stealer, is one thing that comes to mind with Sonnie in the name. Eh what? Isn't he suppose to be a football player? Isn't stealing bases, a baseball sport? Oh I mean, baseball. Patience, Sonnie's favourite word. Drag the opponent in your waiting and you have the chance to make the play, that one play to start all plays. Once the time is right, or when the steel is hot, you get into action quickly, like the split second outburst from the starter's gun on the track in front of 50,000 spectators in the Olympics final 100m race, oh you get it. Explosiveness, speed, power and split second decisions, something that has dominated Sonnie's game, not to forget great hand eye coordination, there goes to show it goes to hand feet eye coordination as Sonnie picks out the right passes, run the right positions and starts the right plays. A pity he can't steal home plates and score runs in football, but he can certainly steal balls and score goals?

#7 - LM - Job Bobbie - Age 20 - No Club/ National Football Academy/ King's College - Captain
The good old number #7 man. Unlike a controlling, dominating left winger with far greater offensive tendencies and individualistic tendencies, Bobbie is somewhat different, more of a team player and with a keen eye on picking good crosses, he makes a good compliment with Dwight who comes sprinting down the left flank. Bobbie cuts inside to support his central midfield buddy Sonnie or to relive the pass from Dwight before cutting out again for Dwight to make an inside or to make a one two with one of the oncoming forwards or to make the dribble for himself. Floris looked to this age old teamplayer and handed him the Captain's armband not just because of his on the ball awareness but also because of his big pictured, aerial vision of the game. Not so much an eccentric leader when considered to outstanding captains of his age, he is more of a down to earth elder brother to the team despite being in the same age group. Maturity comes from experience in life, not just the numbers on your identity card, proved to be true in the form of Bobbie.

#8 - CM - Moseses Quin - Age 20 - No Club/ National Football Academy
Moseses cuts open the Red Sea. Or maybe he can cut the red card into half. Oh wait, he is Moseses, what a lad. Leaning on the right side of the central midfield, he is a good pairing with Sonnie. Soonie, however, seems to play better with Bobbie as a potential left side complement though. Energetic, handsome, photogenic, stop stop. Are we describing a would be sports model? Yes, he certainly turns heads on campus whenever he makes an appearance and a heartthrob to the ladies or whoever sets their eyes on him, even if it is just a glance. Appearance aside, Moseses is a box to box midfielder, hard working, disciplined, good all-round abilities but doesn't quite excel in attacking and defending, just skilled, and probably skewed towards sticking his head in the centre of the park most of the time. Trace back to his own box to make tackles and block shots then up ahead carrying the ball forward and run into the opponent's' box to assist or score himself. Quite traditional one would observe, noting how the game has evolved to split the two roles into holders and surgers in recent years. A mark of backwardness or conventionalism by Floris nonetheless.

#9 - RM - Henry Tomomi - Age 20 - No Club/ National Football Academy - Vice - Captain
Henry Tomomi, his name speaks volumes even before you see him. Impressions include wisdom, intellect, an attractive and refined friend, while a leader in his right. Tomomi is the sort to sit a little deeper than his left flank counterpart, Sonnie. Yet, he is not to be missed with his pace, and ability to beat the opponent's full back one on one and his incredible strength to muscle his way through if he is caught. A little less refined his in technical abilities than Sonnie, Tonomi takes on slightly more demanding physical roles to make up for it often opting for tried and tested passes and crosses rather than beating opponents by skills, he brings them down with both physicality and intellect a part, just like what his name suggests. A leader on the pitch, he complements well with Job Bobbie in the dressing rooms, probably a little less patient than the skipper himself, but he is a great listening ear and often can be seen talking to his teammates over coffee.

#10 - ST - Leonde Patrick - Age 20 - No Club/ National Football Academy
Patrick might not turn heads as often as Moseses, but turns heads for him is on the pitch. That is what matters isn't it? A second striker or inside forward, he is known for his ability to play in the hole, or what one would say between the space between the midfield and the defence of the opposing team, that means dancing around opponents? Probably. Quick, nimble, mobile, flexible and skillful and of great help to set up goals together with right midfielder Henry Tomomi, they are most likely to be the ones creating goals. Although Patrick might be thought of to be quick and nimble, he is also known for his strength, another feature that has been part of Floris' team this time round, with an emphasis on less than refined technical skills but a lot more focus on physical abilities. Something not to be missed despite Patrick's less than refined technical abilities is his dribbling though, an area which he has worked on countless of times and complements well with his nimble feet as observers suggests.

#11 - ST - Fernando Gauvain - Age 20 - No Club/ National Football Academy
Gauvain takes the role as the number 11 in the central forward spot ahead of Patrick as the team's key goal scoring and focal point of the majority of the attacking play by the team this tournament, at least. Of course, if you only measure a young lad by just how many goals they score, Guavain won't be in the running for the starting spot for this team. Not known to be any better at scoring goals than any of the top forwards in the Youth Premiero Liga, Guavain was brought in solely because of his agility, on the ball skills, confidence and strength, and also height. A kayaker, who plays football as an off season spot, Guavain finds himself in the wrong sport after all, after he suggested to paddle to Valanora for the DBC, luckily Floris pulled him back and sit him on the plane instead. Height is of an advantage just like how it helped with his reach in the water, strength and endurance, just as nicely put in the water, we don't know whether he is well conditioned enough to be putting in an on season effort on the field though. Game time will tell signs whether this off season kayaker is ready for some football matches.

PLAYERS: RESERVES
#12 - GK - Fernao Rufino - Age 20 - No Club/ National Football Academy
Rufino has it rough, rougher than many of his teammates in fact, he came from ice hockey. Imagine skating such aggressively on the ice and now having to run on the pitch, and roll around in the mud, what a horror. Falling down in grace and away from the obstructive helmet, Rufino roughs it out on the ground as his favourites are one on ones with each of the outfielders in the team. Gone are the days when he can have his entire body to the goal though, now he has to dive and jump and catch like really take the leap of faith and dive for it. Low balls are his strengths though, well drilled in bottom corner shots, he might have that bit of a trouble taking those upper corner shots because that is literally what he doesn't do in ice hockey, but whose idea was it to bring an ice hockey goalie in the football pitch anyway? Anyone? Floris? Anyone with that name? Sounds familiar.

#13 - CB - Jansen Olu - Age 20 - No Club/ National Football Academy/ University of Queensland
Another varsity player on the pitch together with Bobbie, who is from the King's College. This Business Administration major better not be doing his sums or his SWOT analysis on whether or not to play the game. Just play and defend well. Another one of those ambitious and physical fellows in the team. Despite, Floris' insistence to not throw long crosses into the opposition half, a more completely opposite instruction for his teammate Singer, Olu, just attempts it anyway. No wonder he sits on the bench but such ambitious attempts have a 1 in 3 chances probability to hit an advancing Maplish player, as calculated by Olu, what nonsense. For one, one wouldn't be too confident to execute a pass that isn't at least 50% accurate at least. At least in 4 tries, get 2 in, but seems like what 50% means to Olu is there is a 50% chance that the ball won't reach an offensive player because it is either a hit or a miss, 50-50 indeed. Is this the partition problem? Are some partitions just that much better than others? One shudders to think.

#14 - CB - Nazariy Borislav - Age 20 - No Club/ National Football Academy
Borislav, a sport fisherman more than anything else or he could be a career fisherman if he wants to. What is he doing on the football pitch? Few things to learn from him though, he has an odd superstition about the weather, if the weather isn't at all good, he tends to stand his ground and his a little more patient than usual. "One doesn't curse the weather, as nature it is should be taken naturally," wise words coming from a 20 year old. Giving things a second and re-evaluating it, when brought into context on the football pitch means making calculated guesses on the pitch and timing his tackles right rather than throwing in tough and rough and wild tackles whenever he feels like it, sounds a little bit better than the all rough Tijs, one might think. But that only throws you off especially when concentration gets a little wayward when the weather goes down south, lesser analysis and more work, would do Borislav better though. Cheers to that.

#15 - CM - Arnar Vioir - Age 20 - No Club/ National Football Academy
Vioir, at one point, I thought there might be double "o"s. Comparing him to the football team is like comparing apples with oranges. This dude is all the way from the weightlifting team. Now, we can say he is buying his time in the offseason with the football team, just like Gauvain, that kayaker. Training for Vioir consists of more squats than the football team can comprehend, and more assistance exercises than the football team has ever seen. Front squats, back squats, picture perfect snatches shot in quick succession and the neat catch at the bottom at the highest pull of the bar and dropping under perfectly, good technique Tuesday, captions one of the weightlifting coaches, remarking Vioir's emphasis on technique mastery and practice. What can that bring over to football? One fears the other who practices 1 kick 1000 times rather than the one who practices 1000 kicks 1 time. There we go, Vioir has good technique mastery, good control and keeps himself close, perfect for man marking duties especially in defending corner. One could have witness a human clean and press.

#16 - CM - Agnar Yngvar - Age 20 - No Club/ National Football Academy
We have seen a sprinter, kayaker, rugger, mixed martial artist, fisherman, weightlifter, an ice hockey keeper, but have we seen an Olympic rower. Floris lack of options really have him pulling out all strings to keep tabs on athletes who do play football decently during their off season. Yngvar is an Olympic Rower, good riddance, or probably one might say for the good of Di Bradini. A huge power to weight ratio, is that enough? Add an endless amounts of insane dedication and the daringness to keep going and going and going and going like those trains spinning on the tracks. Not only is he a good combination of speed, he also emcompasses some resemblence of endurance, and his favourite past time indeed is going for marathon length jogs. One can only guess this means he is a workhorse on the pitch, something that is not to be missed as he runs into positions set out just fine. Floris really has a good eye.

#17 - CM - Oliv Lui - Age 20 - No Club/ National Football Academy
Another player from the RMAFSA that Floris has dugged out from. Lui finished his service ambically with the RMAF. Both the DBC and the World Cup qualifying gave him a chance to consider his future and he has hopped to pursuit university and club football in the future. Lui was a combat medic, who obviously played football when he was free, or at least on the Sports Association level, one can at least guess. Combat medics in the RMAF at least, complete rounds of courses which certify them as Emergency Medical Technicians, paramedics and on site trauma care specialist and an all round medical and clinical setting training, something which is similar to the type of training that med school students get to experience. An on the job training component and a capstone emergency treatment simulation rounds up the training for Lui in his role as a combat medic. During the WCQ 87, Lui joined the National Football Academy to train with his teammates.

#18 - ST/ Utility - Hampus Torbjorn - Age 20 - No Club/ National Football Academy/ Great Readingbury University
Torbjorn is termed a Utility, perhaps, a compliment of his versatility or simply just a backhanded compliment to his inability to settle in any of the positions on the pitch, but lets just assume it is meant to be a compliment for his versatility on the pitch. Although mainly used in the forward roles, Torbjorn was also utilised in other positions such as the defensive midfield, the wings, or the centre backs positions in his tenure within the National Football Academy. One can only imagine why because he is one of the younger coaches within the Academy, and since Floris needs some young men to form the squad for the Di Bradini Cup, he is brought on on the very last minute, what a bummer. Despite being a last minute back then for the DBC, Torbjorn has impressed for Floris and for the qualifying campaign, he has impressed further with his consistent performances. Currently, a sports science major in the Great Readinbury University, he is also a varsity team player and the current captain of the varsity football team at the university.

Nickname: The Sentients
Style Modifier: -4
Formation: 5-3-2
RP allowances: Godmodding is encouraged. No more than two red cards or three yellows.

Home Kit:
Image

Away Kit:
Image
Big shout out to Ziwana for making this kit. Despite Sylestone's national side being Appliances, there have been complaints from the public about not having a kit, so we have taken that into account.


Brick Wall
Position: Goalkeeper
About: The Brick Wall is quite literally a Brick Wall in the goals, stopping almost every shot. However, his dimensions are far off the dimensions of a soccer goal, so goals still go in as he shuffled around.
Dirty Tactics: Ramming into the occasional striker who dribbles the ball towards him instead of just shooting.

Ironing Board
Position: Defender
About: The Ironing Board is well known across Sylestone for his brilliant defence and his ability to stop almost every dribbling striker in their tracks.
Dirty Tactics: Used his flexible legs to stop the ball from passing through the defence and uses his iron to warn off opposing strikers with its heat.

Dishwasher
Position: Defender
About: The Dishwasher is an interesting character in the Sylestonean defence. His large body stops a lot of balls from going into the goalmouth.
Dirty Tactics: Speed water everywhere in the defence, especially in the second half, which bogs the playing field, stopping many offensive moves in their tracks.

Tumble Dryer
Position: Striker
About: One of Sylestone’s main two strikers, the Tumble Dryer is a brilliant but inaccurate goal scorer for the Sylestonean side. One to watch.
Dirty Tactics: Spins the ball around in his Dryer and flings it at the goal. Also shuts the machine and carries the ball inside it.

Washing Machine
Position: Defender
About: Another large sentient object in the defence, the Washing Machine is once again, another player who stops many offensives with his large body.
Dirty Tactics: Is basically a combination of the Dishwasher and Tumble Dryer. Spews water everywhere and flings the ball out of himself at odd angles.

Sofa
Position: Defender
About: Sylestone's defence is full of their largest sentient athletes and the Sofa is the largest of them. His defence has been the best all tournament and he runs the backline. A lot will be reliant on him if Sylestone are to get a respectable result this tournament.
Dirty Tactics: Can speak into the minds of opposition, giving them a feeling of wanting to sit down and relax.

Fridge:
Position: Midfielder
About: Another large object, but this time it is located in Sylestone's midfield. He is the king of dirty tactics and runs opponents down with his buff body. Easily the most laughable of all of the Sylestonean Appliances.
Dirty Tactics: Has many of them, most of which can't be named. His main one is shutting his door and running towards the goal with the ball inside. Others include his super-appliance jumping skills and cold breath.

Bar Stool
Position: Midfielder
About: If the Fridge is the dirtiest, the Bar Stool is the cheekiest. He doesn't have any of his own dirty tactics, but he "allies" with another object and uses them to perform his own. Definitely an unpredictable character and one to watch out for.
Dirty Tactics: One of his tactics is to be the one who kicks the ball inside the Fridge when he goes off on his run. He also stands on other objects to reach high balls.

Drawer
Position: Defender
About: One of Sylestone's lesser defenders, the Drawer is quite a stationary object in the defence. He stands in your road and doesn't let you past and is more of a sweeper. Still, a force to be reckoned with, though.
Dirty Tactics: Keeps the ball in one of his chests when they are doing well so the opposition has a lesser chance of scoring.

Stove:
Position: Midfielder
About: I always thought a Stove without pots and pans would be useless, but it isn't so. This stove has a couple of sneaky tricks up his sleeve and is certainly one of the Sylestonean players the opposition midfielders need to deal with sooner rather than later.
Dirty Tactics: Makes the air really hot around him, as opposed to the Fridge.

Mixer
Position: Striker
About: Arguably Sylestone's most valuable player, the Mixer is a star dribbler and striker. His goal scoring ratio isn't so great and that is mainly the Tumble Dryer's job, but he is the one that actually gets the ball to that point. However, he is quite unpredictable and sometimes his dribbling skills go horribly wrong, especially considering the ball is about the size of his body.
Dirty Tactics:
Weaves in and out of defenders with his tiny size and amazing dribbling skills. Gets unplugged a bit too often, though.

Hebitaka for the Cup of Harmony 79

Image

Logo Designed by Indusse


Hebitaka, sadly did not get selected for the final round of the World Cup in Ethane and Taeshan. However the team has been lucky enough to receive the invitation to another one of the most prestigious football tournaments, the Cup of Harmony. A tournament that is played by certain teams that did not make it for the final 32 in the World Cups, has reached it's 79th edition. And Hebitaka feels blessed to get the invitation to this tournament within the first year. We will do our best.

The nation will send 18 players, the same as in the qualifiers, for the tournament to Cassadaigua and Northwest Kalactin. We hope for the best.

Trigramme: GAB

Garbelian National Football/Soccer Team:

Manager:
Gero Tisza managed Garvida Revolutionaries for 5 seasons. After his takeover as boss, the team never looked back, finishing 1st, 2nd and 1st in consecutive seasons, and before he took over internationally, they were on their way to another title. He plays a wide 4-3-2-1 formation with the centre of the midfield 3 as a DMC, making it more like a 4-1-2-2-1. His team conceded the least goals in Garbelia, in every season he managed them. He sets his teams up +0 as neutral.

The Team:

Ottery Otterface - 27 - GK - 6ft 7in
Having won the Garbelian title 4 times, with Norvis FC, Otterface is an excellent keeper. He is best at saving long shots and one-on-ones, but he is not good at defending crosses and scrambles. He is awful at goal kicks, so he always goes short to a defender, who can then hit a long pass up the pitch.

Marge Findus - 22 - DL - 6ft 2in
Marge Findus is a reliable wing-back, who likes to tuck in and allow opponents lots of room on the flanks, but never a single cross into the middle. She is quite slow, but has an excellent chipped cross, which is a perfect height to volley.

James Lutrison - 21 - DC - 6ft 1in
James Lutrison, despite having never won a title, is regarded as the best defender in Garbelia, and plays well with Ottery Otterface, specialising in headers, both attacking and defending set pieces, and from open play. He is still young, however, and has a tendency to foul the striker if he is beaten.

Otto Johnson - 25 - DC - 5ft 4in
Otto Johnson is one of the original players who played all throughout Garvida Rangers' rise. He is terrible at heading the ball, but incredible at last-ditch tackles, and famous for his 50 yard passes, right to where the striker wants it.

Otter McCat - 26 - DR - 6ft 4in
The last member of Garbelia's defence, Otter McCat is a good all-round defender, who can effectively tackle and head the ball and also has pace. He is good at laying the ball off to the winger in front, but can't cross well.

Lefiné Avianuin - 30 - ML - 5ft 4in
Lefiné Avianuin (an immigrant from the nearby Avian Empire) is a midfielder who usually plays on the wing. He is not very quick, but he is strong, and can outskill other players, before delivering an excellent cross.

Lonivan Blisset - 19 - DMC - 5ft 11in
Blisset is a young defensive midfielder, who can send passes forward to those in front of him, sideways, and backwards. His long pass is quite poor, as is his tackle, but he is good at chipped through balls and short passes. He is also quite quick, but does not use his speed.

Bob McOtterson - 27 - MR - 6ft 2in
Bob McOtterson is a pacey winger with an excellent long shot, but he is rubbish at set-pieces and crossing. He once scored 32 goals in a season, but has never made more than 10 assists.

Ottery Ottoerson - 23 - AMC - 6ft 3in
Ottery Ottoerson is a slight attacker, who can round any defender and has an excellent finish. He is very quick, but has never scored a header. He won the league twice, finishing as the league's top scorer on both occasions.

Otto Otter - 17 - AMC - 5ft 1in
Otto Otter is widely thought to be the best player in Garbelia. At only 17, he is famous for his free-kicks, which seem to be drawn towards top corner, and having scored a corner against the Garbelian champions of the time, Norvis FC. He is very quick, has an excellent tackle and can score goals for fun. His only weakness is that he is quite selfish and will often choose to make a dribble himself rather than passing to an open teammate.

Arthur Goodotter - 19 - CF - 5ft 3in
Arthur Goodotter is a young striker who has a knack for being in the right place, and smashing penalties or mid-range shots home. He is still learning, so hardly even attempts headers. For a finisher, he is very good at regaining the ball off the back line of defenders.

Penalties: Goodotter, if not available, Otter, Ottoman then Ottoerson.
Free Kicks: Otter, Avianuin, Goodotter
Corners: Otter, Findus, Avianuin, J. Watanabe
