I'd like to enter with Ainslie National 7/10

We're not great at football, but it is a common sport in Ainslie. We're nothing special, but we're not terrible at it either so that's why it is 7.

Orsandia will enter with its national team.

Rating - 8/10

Reasoning : While not the only sport in Orsandia, Soccer is among the most hardcore and meaningful to Orsandian in the sense of national pride and unity, and thus is one of the most prominent pastimes in the country. It is one of the most closely followed sports in the country with a large and often diehard following.

The Orsandian National Team runs a 4-3-3 attack or 4-2-3-1 Default


Coach : Jurgen Schmidt
Roster TBA

I put Athara Magarat National Football Team in here. Football is not the national sport (horse archery is) but still is the sport that most Athara Magaratis tend to favor and already Athara Magarati teams were in various other football leagues and tournaments such as the one held in Ainslie.

Rating: 8/10

GK: Choibasan Kirati, Kritesh Vajracharya
DF: Subin Rai, Mahesh Buduja (captain), Timothy Angers, Tom Druid, Chitra Bahadur Armaja, Samduhang Kulung
MF: Lance Blue, Buddha Purja, Sujan Suhang, Girish Hyolmo, Shivom Jallari, Rain Bi Xi, Rahul Rajbansi
FW: Khazan Bomjan, Ghazan Anasi, Lister Kurtov, Sajim Nagarkoti, March Bell

Formations: attacking 4-1-2-3 or , specially at times 3-5-2 and standard 4-4-2

Do I need to give ratings of each and every one of the 23 as well? And there is no women's cup?

Keomora - It's so goddamn diverse.

Tastreira - I get a Nepal/Tibet/Mongolian vibe from it.

Covonant - It's a different unique concept which is nice to have. I love that in TWI is not just Western modeled states but states of different cultures and ideologies which makes the RP more interesting.

Polar Svalbard - 8/10 would bang.

The Lardian National Team will enter. Rating: 7/10. Reasoning: Soccor/Football is not a popular sport for Lardians, who usually perfer contact sports such as American Football. However Lardians do play football, and the team itself is very disciplined and agressive.

As with most Latino cultures, fútbol is the undisputed national passtime, with rugby coming in at a distant second. The Regencian Republic invests heavily into its youth athletic development from an early age, promoting machismo and preparing youth for service in the Regencian navy or army. The Regencian National Fútbol Team, Los Halcones (The Falcons) are a source of national pride and esteem.

Formation: 4-3-3

GK: Diego Santos Ordóñez (Vice Captain), Sosimo Eduardo
DF: Alonzo Rasgado, Ernesto Cortés, Rubén Macos Gutiérrez, Edmundo Gilabert, Genaro Ruy, Sebastián Axel Elvira
MF: Luciano Berrocal, Manuel Agramonte, Enrique Nores, Francisco Morterero, Jesús Tafalla, Emmanuel Encarnación, Agustín Luque Caballero

I did not think of that unfortunately, but I would be interested in participating or hosting one in the near future.

Language of Bhikkustan - 4/10 not very good. Mainly refugees who fled the socialist regime.

Eastern Union of Socialist Republic 9/10 really good because football is big in both nations. Biggest population pool in TWI and lots of state run training stuff.

Verdon National Team will compete. Football is among the top three sports in Verdon, the others being tennis and handball. As such, Verdonian football enjoys widespread viewership allowing enough revenue for a decent academy system. While the Verdonian team has had a history of success, the current generation marks a bit of a 'rebuild' period as many star players near and enter retirement. At age 37, Jaume de Asti leads the team as veteran GK, retaining most of his talent into the twilight years of his career, while up-and-comers like left-winger Filipe de Çerces, age 20, show great potential, but still have much to learn.

Rating: 6.5/10

Ostehaar's top three sports are football, hockey, and tennis - with teams from the city of Lindastir (not the capital Porohare) leading most charts in most sports. Lindastir Daarem (Lindastir Union) football team has been in the lead for over two decades now, with a rating of 9/10 and a disciplined approach that reminds Osters of teams such as Bayern Munich.

While most of the players in the national team, Na Barnir (The Rocks), are from Lindastir Daarem, the team isn't as effective and is considered inferior.

Rating: 8/10
Formation: 4-3-3

Futbol is the national sport of Michigonia, since the English, Spanish, and Dutch ethnic cultural heritages are a dominant influence. The Michigonia Football Association is the national league, and draws players from around the region (level of play about equal to Bundesliga). The youth programs are well organized and competitive.

An independent fanclub has been making travel arrangements for fans to attend in Norstham, and enthusiasm is high.

The National team play an aggressive 4-3-3, and are led by the league MVP, Tyrone Wong, a 26 year old who led the league in scoring this past season. The midfielders are experienced and methodical but the backfield are young and inexperienced in international competition.

Rating: 8.5/10

Confirmed teams list has been updated. I think the tourney should be capped at 32 total nations to reflect a similar threshold of the FIFA format.

Sure thing. Did you want one to say Bhikkustan and the other New Aapelistan or do you want both teams designated as "Bhikkustan and New Aapelistan" ?

Could i still enter the competition?

If so, Samuderan National Team would be 7/10. Soccer is one of the most popular sports in Samudera. However, lack of good coaches and player resulted in bad management and quality of the teams. But in recent year, there had been improvement after recruiting naturalisation player and coaches from neighbouring countries.
