Map of Valanora

Valanora Information
The most important thing to know about traveling through Valanora is that automobiles are banned except for government officials. A high tech railway system connects the entirety of the nation, with three international airports in Raynor City, Gladerial, and Baysleef. A ferry from Rinaldi travels to and from the island of Capri every hour on the hour. The most distinguishing feature of Valanora is the prevalent amount of forests standing in many of the inner half of the nation, even in cities, with the elven attempts to live in harmony with nature. Vanorians are a polite if not a bit high on themselves, believing elvenkind to be superior to humans, though they show a respect for the potential their humanoid cousins have.

The two-time Under-21 World Champions used to have one of the finest youth programs in the world, at various points in history, but lately, despite the success of the Under-18 side - reaching two finals in a the last decade - Starblaydia's Under-21s have continually under-performed with a succession of Group Stage exits, only reading the Second Round in the 45th edition of the Di Bradini Cup. This time, however, they're out to break their run of form and are aiming for a deep run into the knock-out phase.

Staff
AF. Ázëwyn Fëanáro*, Manager, 4,066
270 Caps, 71 Goals (Uncapped at Under-21 level)
Fëanáro scored the winner in the 47th Final against Valanora, denying them a title on their own turf and lifting Starblaydia to the mantle of all-time greatest team. Known for her excellent attacking play, range of passing and great eye for goal that lifts her to second in the all-time goalscorers list too, by virtue of a nearly 1-in-4 ratio, Ázëwyn Fëanáro is a symbol of grace, power and beauty from Starblaydia's golden age, some hundred and twenty-five years ago when the Cup was in its 40s. It is these qualities that the SFA managed to recapture with Fëanáro at the helm for the 78th World Cup Qualifiers, bringing her trademark poise and piercing yell to the touchlines after more than a decade of national failures. Considered to be by far the most successful and beloved manager in Starblaydia's recent history, and at this point may well be the manager for eternity.

JM. Jerzy Makuszewski, Assistant Manager, 76
83 Caps, 0 Goals (6 Caps, 0 Goals at Under-21 level)
Known as "Chef" by those who can pronounce his surname correctly, Makuszewski took up the mantle of "Best in the World" Lucas Cable to become Starblaydia's unassailable number one between the posts and wear the captain's armband. Always a fiery character, he can shift from jovial to furious in moments, and is Fëanáro's 'enforcer', barking out orders and remonstrating with players and officials with equal fervour. Age has not wearied his inimitable growling on the sidelines by even a little bit.

Sarzonia Stars Under 21 team
Note: Starters in BOLD

My opponent, if they RP first, may do the following:
Choose my goalscorers/goal scoring events: Yes
Godmod scoring events: No*
RP injuries to my players: No
Godmod injuries to my players: No
Hand out yellow cards to my players: No more than one or two per match
Hand out red cards to my players: No
Godmod other events: No*
Style modifer: +1
*Stuff like choosing who takes a free kick/who scores and how is fine. Weather, someone losing their lunch is OK. True Godmods are not.

Manager: Nathan Hanifer (50 years old)
Hanifer previously applied for this position when the Stars decided to send their Under 21 national team to AOCAF LIX. With the suicide of Bryan Ostrom and the elevation of Kevin Connelly to national team manager for the senior side, Hanifer assumes the managerial position of an international side for the first time.

Assistant Manager: Diego Cristobal (41 years old)
The Incorporated Football Federation and Hanifer both loved the energy and enthusiasm he brought to his interview to be the Stars Under 21 manager. Even though he lost out on the role to Hanifer, he was happy to accept the assistant manager role. He works primarily with midfielders and strikers.

Assistant Manager: Colton Longley (49 years old)
Longley's primary responsibility is to work with defenders and defensive midfielders. He takes on the assistant manager role to help an inexperienced Stars side with the vagaries of international football.

Goalkeepers Coach: Marissa Bingham-Sandt (35 years old)
She played keeper in multiple Sarzonian women's leagues and she married Stars legend Horace Sandt after she retired as a player.

HOME GROUND: Joe Gibbs Stadium, Woodstock (75,900 capacity; natural grass field)

GOALKEEPERS
29 Glen Baker, 19, 5-foot-11, 185 pounds, University of Nicksia
Baker won three state championships in his four years in high school. He earned the starting job midway through the college season and finished with a 5-2-2 record with a 0.87 goals against average. Assumes the starting role for the Under 21 Stars after Carlton Sandt got called up to the senior national team.
35 Eleanor Keating, 20, 5-foot-4, 135 pounds, Woodstock Justice reserves
Keating has been brought in to provide depth behind Baker, who was the backup to Carlton Sandt on the AOCAF team.

DEFENDERS
3 Carlette Taylor, 20, 5-foot-4, 134 pounds, unaffiliated
Taylor is a rugged defender who often marks players who outweigh her by at least 50 pounds and are at least four inches taller. She makes up for lack of speed with positioning and reading her opponent's runs.
5 Ian McKinley, 18, 5-foot-9, 168 pounds, Somerset University
McKinley plays fullback for Somerset University, but will play a sweeper role for the Stars after the loss of sweeper Clyde Gustafsson to a torn ACL.
6 John Taylor 19, 5-foot-10, 175 pounds, Portsmouth University
The younger brother of Carlette Taylor, John plays a similar style to his sister's, although with much more speed.
18 Carlos Arroyo, 20, 6-foot, 200 pounds, Real Portsmouth (Sarzonian third division team)
A reserve sweeper for the Stars, Arroyo starts for Real Portsmouth in that position after converting from fullback. Notched three assists in 12 matches.
32 Brett Mabry, 19, 5-foot-11, 185 pounds, Woodstock Wild Reserves
Mabry earned a starting position with the Wild Reserves after initially making the parent side out of training camp. However, the Wild engineered a trade that brought them an all star defender who took minutes away from Mabry.
44 Pat Meyers, 20, 5-foot-8, 152 pounds, unaffiliated
Meyers won a lawsuit against the Portland Timbers third division affiliate when the team dismissed them after successfully proving the club released them due to their gender non-conforming status. The technical director responsible for the decision was fired two weeks after the verdict. Meyers plays mostly halfback but can also pitch in at fullback if necessary.

MIDFIELDERS
2 Charlie Ross, 18, 6-foot-1, 180 pounds, Portland Timbers reserves
Ross is a defensive midfielder who was called upon to play more of an offensive role after injuries decimated the parent club and forced call ups. Can be used in the back line if needed.
8 Marc Kemp, 19, 5-foot-10, 180 pounds, unaffiliated
Kemp was just released from his contract with Wilmington Wanderers, a fourth division side, when a transfer offer to a third division side fell through. He also plays a defensive midfield role although he has better speed and ball handling ability than most defensive midfielders in Sarzonia.
9 Rick Hadley, 21, 5-foot-9, 157 pounds, unaffiliated. Team captain.
Hadley won the playmaking midfielder role for the Junior Stars after Clayton Wilson was called up to the senior national team and began playing a key reserve role.
12 Edwin Campbell, 20, 6-foot-2, 200 pounds, Wilmington Wanderers
Campbell comes to the Under 21 edition of the Stars at the recommendation of Kemp. He brings size and strength to attacking runs that also present deceptive speed and on-ball skills.
14 Joanie Rhys, 19, 5-foot-5, 140 pounds, Woodstock Justice reserves
Joanie signed a contract with the Justice right after high school after leading her scholastic league with 18 goals in 12 matches played. Her speed is unmatched at her level, but she needs to learn to adapt to equally fast players at the international level.
13 Nestor Royce, 19, 5-foot-9, 150 pounds, Saugerties Snakes
Royce earned a starting job with the Snakes as a midfielder and scored seven goals in 18 matches before injuries derailed him.
16 Marco Benignati, 20, 5-foot-11, 180 pounds, Portland Timbers reserves
Benignati can provide depth at defensive midfielder and has played fullback for his high school. Played halfback during a televised contest for Portland Junior College.

FORWARDS
15 Suzi Calderon, 19, 5-foot-7, 145 pounds, Portland Pride
Calderon brings ball skill to the table as a forward. She can drop back in a midfield role on occasion and has done so for the Pride when her team played a woman down after red cards.
20 Thurman West, 19, 5-foot-11, 170 pounds, Saugerties Snakes reserves
West also brings ball skill and creative flair to his role with the Snakes reserve 11 and scored five goals coming off the bench in the second half of games during the regular season.
22 Nick Raiden, 21, 6-foot-4, 210 pounds, Saugerties Snakes
Raiden is pure power and pace. He doesn't quite have the finesse of either of the starting forwards, but he is available for late-match offence if needed.

There's an adage that the more things change, the more they stay the same.

This will be the case for the Sarzonian Under 21 national team as it assembles in Goldsan, where they've decided to make their headquarters in the 68th Under 21 World Cup.

Gone are the late Bryan Ostrom, the previous Under 21 national team manager who was elevated to manage the senior national team but committed suicide before his team played a single World Cup qualifying match and erstwhile assistant manager Kevin Connelly, who took over as interim manager for the rest of World Cup 84 qualifying. In their place steps Nathan Hanifer, who will be making his international managerial debut here in Valanora. He takes on Diego Cristobal and Colton Longley as assistant managers, plus a name that hearkens back to the glory days of Sarzonian football.

In as Sarzonia's goalkeeping coach is Marissa Bingham-Sandt, the wife of Horace Sandt, the legendary Stars goalkeeper who had multiple qualifying campaigns that saw his teams only concede one goal throughout the qualifying stage. She was a stellar goalkeeper in her own right in Sarzonian women's football, and Hanifer was quick to say her marital ties with Horace Sandt weren't the reason she was hired.

"She has her own pedigree," Hanifer said. "She's been successful in her own right as a player and as a coach. I wouldn't hire someone to this position just because of her last name."

It clearly helps, though. As Marissa Bingham, she might have encountered a few questioning glances from the goalkeepers the Stars have brought with them, but as soon as they hear the name Sandt, they sit up and take notice. After all, he was the goalkeeper who kept the clean sheet for Sarzonia against Oaker in the World Cup 22 final won by the Stars 4-0. He played a key role in a team that advanced to the semifinals in four consecutive World Cups and was a major reason behind Sarzonia being inducted into the nations' hall of fame. Oh, and Sandt himself occupies one of 10 slots given to Sarzonia in the football hall of fame.

"When you hear the name Sandt and you're a goalkeeper in Sarzonia, that's the level you want to be at," goalkeeper Glen Baker said. "If she can help me be a better goalkeeper, I'm all ears." Baker assumes the starting role after serving as another Sandt's backup. Carlton Sandt, who impressed Banijan scouts during AOCAF play by keeping Sarzonia's Under 21 national team from being blown out of the water by senior national teams, is ineligible to play again for the Junior Stars as a member of the senior national team. Thus, Baker will start, backed up by Eleanor Keating.

The Stars will play a 3-5-2 formation favoured by Diogo Avarel, the manager of the newly-minted Under 18 national team colloquially dubbed the Baby Stars. However, Hanifer said the team will seek to play with more emphasis on defence than Avarel's aggressive offensive style.

"We want to dictate tempo and play aggressively, but we also don't want to leave Baker out to dry," Hanifer said. "We need to create a balance and make sure we're not leaving players too wide open because we missed a mark trying to build the attack."

Until the Stars open their play with a match against Trolleborg on Tuesday night, they'll have one eye on the Baby Stars in Taeshan as that team gets set to face Poafmersia in the Round of 16 at The Haberdashery in Williams Isle.

"That team plays with a lot more devil may care abandon than we're used to," Hanifer said. "We want a small element of that for our side, but not to the extent that we're giving up five goals in a match that we win. That's enough to age anybody."

As for the question marks about Von Page and their status as a gender non-conforming player, Hanifer said the team almost took a gender non-binary goalkeeper as the third choice keeper, but said they had a death in the family and couldn't make it.

"We'll have a plane ticket ready for them if we do well enough," Hanifer said. "We believe the best players in Sarzonia should be able to play regardless of who they are, whom they love, or how they express themselves." Hanifer also praised Ben DiSoto for his support of Page.

"That kid comes from a great family," Hanifer said. "I hand it to Matt for responding to Ben by saying, 'get in the car' and going to get Von. I hand it to Ben for being such a fiercely loyal friend. I hope to be able to manage them both when they're eligible for this team."

Nickname--since the end of the 1960's the National Team has been known as "The Bees", a period when the team's uniforms consisted of alternating black and gold hoops. While the bee is an element on the coat of arms of the Commonwealth—a long accepted heraldic symbol of industriousness--the association was actually a reference made in an Italian newspaper game story when the senior team was wearing the hooped shirts, referring to the BP team as il Bombi (the bumblebees) for their perseverance and swarming tactical play.
Colors--Black & Gold (while they are just 2 of the 5 main colors on the flag of Baker Park--Blue, Red and White are the others--black & gold have been closely associated in the nation's consciousness as representative of the country since its founding.)

The Commonwealth National Under 21 Team returns to Valanora for the sixth time to take part in the DiBradini Cup, which was the first tournament that the nation participated in the NS era. Following a surprising elimination from the group stage last time out, Baker Park will look to return to form, with 8 new additions from the previous U18 Championship winning side. Jennifer Prescott will take charge for the third time here, and will be teamed up with Tony Weiss as her assistant; the pair were in charge (in opposite roles) when the U18's won their first title in SWC 5.

NEPHARA U-21s
Preferred Formation:
4-4-2
Style Modifier: 0
Playstyle: The 'new style'. Solid in defence, fluid across the wings, hard-pressing, hard-running, hard-tackling. Always moving forward, ideally but not necessarily with quick passes along the floor but unafraid to make devastating long balls across to the opposite flank to throw defences off-guard.
Kit Supplier: ediraf
Captain: Lothaire Cromwell
Nickname: The Magpies

Nephara abruptly went from a low ebb to a powerful new world due to an exceptionally successful cycle, and apart from the ... apart from pretty much the midfield situation, they're hot to trot this generation. Suddenly, not only is the current generation living up to its potential but the next appears ready to follow in its footsteps. Apart from not having a defensive midfielder. The faintly psychopathic Ivy Herrick remains in charge, bringing her brutalist, uncompromising style to the team.

Staff
Manager - Ivy Herrick - Age 40
Assistant Manager - Lorelei Redruth - Age 63

A journeywoman defender in her playing days, Ivy Herrick is convinced she's actually in her fifties in real terms and has significant experience managing in Bonesea. Nobody believes her, but it's hard to argue with her badges, and her ... odd canniness for her age. Redruth's the seasoned head to cool her down.

Goalkeepers
1 - Aranea Provost (Brookford Otters) - Age 20
12 - Raluca Garamond (Coret Hawks) - Age 20
20 - Yves Carroll (Sabrefell Moths) - Age 21

Provost and Garamond are by a distance the leading two, but Provost has the advantage of actual first-team minutes under her belt, an uncompromising leader and excellent shot-stopper with appropriately long limbs. Garamond might get a game, and is perhaps the stronger shot-stopper though overall less balanced.

Defenders
2 - RB - Linde Rostock (Stahlburg City) - Age 21
3 - LB - Vivica Muscadin (Sabrefell Moths) - Age 21
5 - CB - Reniira Clevinger (Newrook City) - Age 21
6 - CB - Miska Brabanzon (Sabrefell Moths) - Age 20
13 - CB - Gawain Warden (Stahlburg City) - Age 19
19 - RB - Petria Brincat (Sabrefell Athletic) - Age 20
22 - LB - Alexis Koutros (Sabrefell Athletic) - Age 20

Probably the strongest area of the side. Sturdy little Rostock and lithe Muscadin are both great examples of the classic pioneering Nepharim fullback who has pace to burn and a staggering Napoleon complex. Miska Brabanzon loves the art of defending and slams full-blooded into challenges. And Clevinger's a fucking half-satyr, so there's that. The others aren't far off their level, either.

Midfielders
4 - HM - Lothaire Cromwell (Raven River) - Age 20
7 - RM - Anselm Koerner (Chenoworth Rovers) - Age 20
8 - CM - Leif Flaxwood (Starling) - Age 20
11 - LM - Sonya Latimore (AFC Corvistone) - Age 21
13 - RM - Janna Sauthier (Cypher Town) - Age 21
14 - CM - Shiida Roesler (Crisisbless United) - Age 21
16 - LM - Chantal Kalevi (Vermillion Wanderers) - Age 20
23 - HM - Sander Moritz (North Laithland) - Age 21

The slightly thorny point of the squad. Lothaire Cromwell might be the best player in the squad and certainly has the armband but plays his club football in a box-to-box role, but here is likely to cover for Flaxwood, a slow but muscular and composed playmaker who doesn't do much running. Koerner and Kalevi are both well-honed conventional sorts who like to smack crosses in, with their backups offering more direct approaches. Roesler's another half-satyr.

Forwards
9 - ST - Lukas Stonemoore (Revolutionaries, EUR) - Age 21
10 - ST - Latona Basilisk (Coret Hawks) - Age 20
15 - ST - Renira Schanzer (Sabrefell Athletic) - Age 20
17 - ST - Ruby Gjasula (Raven River) - Age 21
21 - ST - Felix Sebastian (AFC Treason) - Age 21

Lukas Stonemoore hasn't played a single minute of football in Nephara as an adult, but was dominant enough at university level (Hinodejin, so, not just amateur kickabouts) to carry on the honoured tradition of Euran cradle-snatching. Basilisk has been honing her art on loan in Taeshan, clever and ruthless and good between the lines. Gjasula is probably the natural impact substitute, perhaps the fastest player in the squad, but is not expected to be a top-class international; Schanzer might be, if she can overcome injuries.

Schottia U21 Squad
The 47th Di Bradini Cup
Valanora

Manager: Grey Holden, 44 Image
Assistant Manager: Lewis Beardie, 41 Image

GK Coach: Duncan Ross, 53 Image

Style Modifier: -1


The jury is still out on Grey Holden, after taking over from John Sedder two years ago. Schottia have been struggling to make much headway at this level of international competition for a while, and the FA are yet to be convinced that Holden is the man to oversee it. Lewis Beardie keeps his place as assistant, with first team coach, Tommy Rearson completing a very youthful backroom team. Goalkeeping coach, Duncan Ross, is the elder statesman of the team at 53, with Duncan Collison completing the line-up as physio.

GK Max Cassley, 19, Handon United Image Height: 196cm. Weight: 78kg
This tournament is an excellent chance for John Prichard to put himself in the shop window. Playing first team football with Kirk Preston has helped him jump up the pecking order with regards to his international career, but his $800 a week contract is coming to an end, and it’s time to move on. Tony Tyneman has really given his career a shot in the arm with a move to Energija Chernovets. He’s very much second choice in this squad, but getting his name associated with the Schottia setup will do him no harm whatsoever. Finally, Handon United teenager, Max Cassley, completes the goalkeeping trio.

CB Sarah Meerfeld, 21, West Holbrookdale Image Height: 184cm. Weight: 67kg
Under Holden, Schottia are always going to be about the defence, and that’s just as well, given one or two of the players at their disposal. Schottia have three pretty decent centre-halves in this age bracket, Lucy Hellhauer, Michael Christie, and Sarah Meerfeld. Despite looking like an escaped convict, Hellhauer is a very switched on and reliable defender. She came through the ranks at the Handon branch of the National Academy, before joining Timurian side, Manat FK last summer. She is probably favourite to start alongside Christie, another academy graduate that has moved on to pastures new this recently. The former Golden Boy of RDS:D was subject to a fair bit of interest in the window, before signing a contract with Audioslavian outfit Izotz Zubia. Meerfeld, on loan at with the Dale from Cornellians, may have to be content with second fiddle, but she’s a good player in her own right. Pirates duo, Hiro Del Duniun and Jojo Ayoub, will start at right and left back respectively, and are two players who have a big future in the game. Ayoub has been keeping skipper, Liam Goncalves, on the bench in the SPL this season, and is probably one of the best talents the Christopheran club have produced since Maeve Bronte. Isla Kincorick is a good option on the bench, and has benefited from getting a season in Baker Park under her belt. Sixteen-year-old Hazel Hanson-Conavacio also gets at call up, after a good first season in the All Hinodejin Youth League. The versatile, beanpole defender, also plays basketball for Quebec.

There’s no shortage of first team experience for Schottia in the centre of the park, with Port Patrick’s Lewis Nicholson already well established at club level. His outstanding breakthrough season, while still at Dundee, was enough earn him his first senior cap for Schottia as well as a move to the Breakers. The DBC will be a good learning curve for Nicholson, and we’ll get the chance to see how he handles the pressure of being the “main man.” Kirston Union youth product, Rachael Arniston, signed for Nepharim Premiership club, Corvistone, in the summer and will be looking to further her development with some good performances here. The quick-footed midfielder will likely get the nod just ahead of Soessch wunderkind, Ingrid Holstad, who Teufels fans will be irate to see settle for a place on the bench. Real Azuris’ Tessa Maitfield is another option for Holden, but it will probably be the next cycle before we see her become a key player at this level. In the wide areas, Michael Robb and Úisge-Aonàranach have been adjusting well to first team action at Kings Park and Port James respectively. Úisge is the first Kelpie to be capped for Schottia at this level, and has been an ever-present part of the Athletic starting eleven, since making the switch from Central Stars a little over a year ago. Robb, by contrast, is a no-nonsense, run-of-the-mill winger, who helped the Royals to the First Division title last season. Pirates teenager Kerr Campbell will act as cover on the right, with Sporting World Cup skipper, Kendra Ramsey, providing support on the left.

ST/AM. Enrico Hanson-Conavavio, 19, Manechester City Image Height: 187cm. Weight: 68kg 
ST. Freja Simonsen, 20, Handon United Image Height: 179cm. Weight: 62kg

ST. Joanna McGidden, 19, Cornellians Image Height: cm. Weight: kg

United’s Freja Simonsen will lead the line for a second tournament on the bounce, with either Enrico Hanson-Conavavio or Simon Palermo likely to start alongside her. Simonsen – daughter of Semar, Marko – has been on red hot form since making the step up to first team football at United, and you’d imagine a senior cap beckons. Enrico – another second-generation player – is the son of Schottia physio Claire Hanson, and Quebecois attacker Leonardo. He’s a big strong attacker, who just needs to learn a little in terms of professionalism. Palermo is a tricky little forward, who has been getting a lot of game time under his belt at Issington in the ANL. Joanna McGidden is currently enjoying a bit of first-team football at Cornellians, and is a pacey option on the bench. Kinnel Hunter is roughly of the same mould as McGidden, and recently switched from the National Academy, to join the youth set up at Directus.

TROLLEBORG NATIONAL TEAM

Trigram: TRL
Nickname: Trolls

COACH

Hendrick KERR. 49-years-old coach, who having already won National League championship, two national cups, one league cup, two Youth League championship and in addition won a second division tournament once. He was always looked for a young talents, gave youngsters a chances to play and make many of them a first-rate players. He lead national team in the both U18 Cups in which she takes part.
The last of them, judging by the face value, was disastrous, but this is clearly due to biased refereeing and other circumstances beyond the control of coaches and football players. And now Kerr appointed to lead the team assembled to participate in the Di Bradini Cup, since only two Trolleborg coaches have at least some international experience, and, apparently, the FA leadership still trusts him.

As the national team for the WC cycle was selected from the best players without regard to age, there was a gap between the youth teams and the main one, and Trolleborg FA chose to work for the future, staffing U21 team players who for the most part would be able to go to another Di Bradini Cup and gain experience there too, with a view to developing their skills as much as only possible.

Everyone expected that team will play fast offensive football, but not to the detriment of defence.

OUR FANS

Fans is a pride of Trolleborg and almost part of the team. Having already earning themselves a name and a good reputation at every tournament where they arrive (apart from the bland and dull Taeshan U18 Cup), they surely will make their presence seen and felt everywhere games will be held, with their usual pastimes like marching with songs, waving flags, try local cuisines, putting cultural performances and trying involve everyone around in all of this. They will give out some Trolleborg memorabilia like a ribbons, buttons, scarves and so on. As already become tradition, we ask host countries to allow a parade of fans with a live music before each game and a places for series of exhibitions devoted to gastronomy, culture and national traditions of our country. Also we ask allocate us some space in the hosting cities to make an exhibition of our cultural heritage and traditions with some traditional sport contests for a local citizens. Also they will explore everything host nation can put to display, and you will probably find big number of them near landmarks, tourists hotspots and so on. Despite their noisiness and almost-over-the-edge-buoyancy, the fans of the Trolleborg team have never been seen in any riots and problems, neither in the stands, nor around, they are rightfully proud of this and intend to continue this trend.

MEDIA

Games will be covered by Trolleborg TV (TTV) in 3D format,

Pasarga Roster
Nickname: Young Wanderers

Kits
Image Image Image


Home Away Third
Modifier: +1

Manager: Srđan Jakšić, age 49
Assistant: Michael Mueller, age 49

Keepers
GK: Illed Chávez Sedillo, age 18, Santos Luega (F)
GK: Dalma Kollár, age 17, Tanrısal (F)
GK: Ábel Virág, age 20, Hellinic Rouge
With a twenty year old and an eighteen year old, the keepers are one of the most experienced groups in the team. On top of being the oldest, Ábel Virág comes off an impeccable domestic campaign with the Sparatans and gets the nod as the number one and should be expected to start every match barring injury or suspension. He has good reflexes and decent at communicating orders to his backline, will look to replicate his youth league form where he made enough saves that the team in front of him could convert their own chances for results.

Defenders
LB: Deli Sinka, age 17, Tanrısal
LB: Erik Klein, age 17, Baskita FC
CB: Anisah Sfiyah Said, age 18, Stein-los Turkish (F)
CB: Ompoly Erôss, age 19, Club Stein-los
CB: Vidor Kovách, age 17, Duke of the North
CB: Markus Vida, age 17, CA Paulinthal
RB: Fulco Salas, age 18, Revolutionaries Image
RB: Barbara Nagy, age 20, Club Stein-los (F)
The backline has a bit of strength to it and Nagy will be expected to lead the group and squad with her experience last tournament in helping the team finish second. There is an argument to try and get Salas some playing time as well, having shown moments of maturity while playing in Eura, so don't be surprised if he makes a start at centerback or takes over a game for Nagy. The leftback position has the most question marks, though both options there come from respected youth academies and have had memorable campaigns domestically. A bend but don't break approach is likely what we are likely to see with this group, though if they can come together as a group early in the tournament, it could be the strength from which the Young Wanderers can build into a solid unit that could go deep in the tournament once more.

Midfielders
RW: Erzebet Lörinc, age 21, Hellinic Rouge (F)
RW: Katinka Pálffy, age 17, Tanrısal (F)
D/MC: Noel Orsós, age 17, Galatica
MC: Michael Baer, age 17, Fetherdron United
MC: Ásmundur Jónatansson, age 17, Lunas FC
MC: Elvar Konráðsson, age 17, Peynol-Lunas
AML/LW: Gillen Madrigal López, age 17, CA Paulinthal
LW: Christina Durr, age 17, Fetherdron United (F)
This is where the biggest question marks come into the entire side, with a whole slew of midfielders who are fresh off their first campaign in the youth leagues. Only Erzebet Lörinc has experience playing, having been on the wing last tournament and she will get the start as a result, though it will be the young CAP winger on the other side who will be handling the corner duty. In the middle of the park will be a pair of youngsters from Lunas, though playing for opposite clubs and rivals. Both are tall, athletic, and good with the ball at their feet. The question will be if they can put aside their domestic rivalry in order to pursue international success or if the less skilled options will be thrown into the starting lineups instead.

Strikers
ST: Eustacio Corral Magana, age 17, CA Paulinthal
ST: Péter Csorba, age 17, Baskita FC
LW/ST: Elek Salai, age 17, Ibini FC Image
ST: Olivia Garza Rosales, age 20, Santos Luega (F)
It's an odd thing when the player who was on the squad last cycle did not get any playing time but is now expected to lead the attack and is the chosen penalty taker, but that is the situation that the Young Wanderers are in. Magana arguably has the highest potential of the other three option but Csorba had the best form in the domestic youth league and will initially get the nod. Salai is likely to get some playing time as well, though he might be moved to the wing, being a natural at both the striking position or out wide, though his taller frame makes him more suited for the role of a hold up striker.

"The Mavinet U18 was knocked out of the Sporting World Cup at Taeshan yesterday after a disappointing 2-0 loss to Gergary in the Play-in round. The young players put in an admirable effort to save their chances of going forward in the tournament, but was made to rue their missed opportunities to gain a lead early in the match. 2 well-executed goals from Gergary showed how much the U18 team still need to train and improve for the future. Nevertheless, Mavinese people everywhere can be proud of the youngsters' overall performance in their very first tournament. A win against a renowned team like Starblaydia and a good match against Croblade were positives to take away, as we prepare to welcome the team back.

As we close the curtain on Mavinet's performance in the SWC, let's turn our attention to a different stage. Today, Mavinet U21's head coach Nguyen Phuc Quang has submitted his final 23-man roster for Mavinet's participation in the upcoming Di Bradini Cup in Valanora. This is also the first time Mavinet participate in this prestigious tournament. There have been 47 editions of the competition, with Bears Armed being the defending champion this year. our entry in this year's Di Bradini Cup is believed to be the preparation for our participation in the upcoming World Cup 85. The group draw saw Mavinet fall into Group E with Baker Park, Imperial Joseon and Equestria. Baker Park and Equestria are giants in the football world, while Imperial Joseon are doing quite well in the Sporting World Cup in Taeshan, the competition Mavinet was just eliminated from. It will take a lot of luck for Mavinet to go far in this competition, but judging by our performance in the Sporting World Cup, we can still be optimistic and hopeful.

We will conclude tonight's news program with the weather forecast for the next 7 days. Thank you for watching and have a good night. Pham Minh Nhat, MBC's news anchor."

Black jerseys, black shorts and black socks. The jersey also features the kanji in the nation's flag although the colors are obviously reversed. It doesn't have a proper representation because the federation's head lost a game of poker to the head honcho back at ediraf.

Already a well-established side in the youth part of things (and possibly at the major level as well, considering this nation won the last two relevant titles they played for), the Hinodejin are now looking towards that elusive second DBC win, which would also make them three-time champions if you count the time they won as Northern Sunrise Islands eons ago. The tournament also serves as promotional material for the Hinodejin Intercollegiate Football League, the league where pretty much everyone in the national team came from.

RP PERMISSIONS
As you might've noticed, some of these players aren't human. Just wanted to point out they're still fairly close to being human, just in case. Please don't kill them. Injuries for large stretches of time have to be informed by telegram, or else they'll get the ignore cannon treatment. Anything else (bar anything that destroys any city of the empire or its' people, just in case anyone gets a bit too creative) is fine by me.

Redemption at stake at DBC
by Fiona Devlin, National Soccer Writer

The Commonwealth Under 21 National Team will be starting off from an unfamiliar role as the 47th DiBradini Cup/Under 21 World Championship 68 gets underway across Valanora.

A final day 4-0 defeat to Taeshan meant, that for the first time, Baker Park would not advance from the group stage, and this time around, the team will have their matches confined to one small part of the country.

Group E have been assigned to play their matches on the island of Capri, off the coast in the southern part of the country adjacent to the nation's most populous region. The marquee matchup will occur straight out of the gate, as the Commonwealth will face off against Equestria at Hatire Memorial in Capri city. Rounding out the group will be Mavinet and Imperial Joseon. The other venue will be in Kareen, south of Capri, at the Rose Garden.

Jen Prescott will be in charge for the third time here, and will have Tony Weiss joining her. "I asked Tony, after the World Cup was over, if he was looking for places to go on vacation and could I recommend a place to him. So he says 'sure' and I replied I hear that Valanora is really nice, so he goes 'ok, I'll check into it' and I said, you'll have plenty of time for that while you're there with me and the 21's."

Joining the squad for the first time will be the group of 19 year olds who were the core of the SWC 9 championship team and Prescott says she's excited to see how they fit in with the returnees. "They are an exciting athletic group, and the options they open up are really interesting."

lineup vs Equestria:
McCormick; Allen, Hardwick, Hughes; Grimaldi, Vuckovic, Taylor, Aguilar; Diaz; Mack, Harris

Chromatik U-21 Squad


Staff
Manager: Shani Hayashida, 56
Assistant Manager: Mikhail Dushov, 50
Physio: Anna-Maria Myers, 36
Style Modifier: +2.5

Quarterfinals was where Hayashida's team ended the first season with her in the helm. Although the Felswyr State University Firehawks didn't do so well - only reaching the Quarterfinals - Hayashida has been given another shot.

The Roster
Goalkeepers
GK 1. Nadia Rios, 21, Urrheddiao State University
GK 12. Asher Singh, 21, Deprí Theological Seminary

Nadia Rios had a ridiculously good season - winning the title - and is going to be one highly sought after player. Asher Singh will be one of the better keepers Chromatika has created once he has graduated.

Backs
RB 2. Wilson Diaz, 21, Urrheddiao State University
CB 3. Noemi Walters, 20, Southern Chromatik University
LB 4. Marietta Adams, 20, Pùr State University
RB 13. Hannah Hill, 21, Pùr State University
CB 14. Solomon Torres, 21, Deprí Theological Seminary
LB 15. Pietr Nex, 21, Alnio University of the Arts

Wilson Diaz is a hellfire of a defender who can tackle extremely well, Noemi Walters a solid defender all around, and Marietta Adams one of the brighter spots for a down year for Pùr State. Hannah is a solid backup, Torres someone who is still a work in progress, and Pietr Nex a side threat with a decent long ball.

Midfielders
RM 5. Addie Lefebvre, 21, Deprí Sanar University
CM 6. Kateryna Zuniga, 20, Chromatik City College University
CM 7. Leysa Burns, 21, Urrheddiao State University
LM 8. Vasiliy Marten Kuznetsov, 19, Urrheddiao State University
RM 16. Joss Johnson, 20, Eyrods Tech
CM 17. Pickering Sionne, 21, Alnio University of the Arts
CM 18. Zelma Adam, 21, University of Myana
LM 19. Jenell Moreno, 20, Eyrods Tech

Addie Lefebvre is a crosser at heart, while Zuniga is one of the better box-out center midfielders in the CCFA. Burns and Kuznetsov was the reason why Urrheddiao State won the title - Kuznetsov is going to be a great one. Joss Johnson has decent pace, Pickering Sionne quick and nimble, Zelma Adam a solid all around player, and Jenell Moreno a right-footed streaker.

Strikers
RW 9. Oriane Marc, 21, Deprí Sanar University
ST 10. Prisca Rogers, 21, Eyrods Tech
LW 11. Tomas Moaves Addams Jr., 21, Deprí Theological Seminary
RW 20. Augustus Humphreys, 21, Deprí Theological Seminary
ST 21. Carrie Arson, 21, Chromatik City College University
ST 22. Ana Valencia, 21, Urrheddiao State University
LW 23. Minx Potten, 20, University of the Wirr Tsi

Prisca Rogers returns to the U-21 team, having led the team in the last DBC; she had another stellar year and scored the most goals in the CCFA. Oriane Marc is an assist machine, and Moaves Addams Jr. is a technically sound, cerebral winger. Augustus Humphreys can be a demanding player who likes attention, but knows how to score. Carrie Arson scored the most game-winners in the CCFA, while Ana Valencia was happy to get the passes from Kuznetsov that led to the championship for Urrheddiao State. Rounding out the team is Minx Potten, Wirr Tsi's bright light.

Distribution:
Urrheddiao State University - 5
Deprí Theological Seminary - 4
Eyrods Tech - 3
Pùr State University - 2
Alnio University of the Arts - 2
Deprí Sanar University - 2
Chromatik City College University - 2

SBCNEWS Online...
DBC special – Five Future Stars.
by Larry Watt, Schottia international, and former Champions' Cup winner.
Larry currently lives with his wife and daughters in Ceni.


It’s that point in the cycle again, where we turn our attention towards youth football and the Di Bradini Cup. With the U21-World Cup now entering an incredible sixty-eighth edition, it’s easy to see why it has come to be regarded as the Multiverse’s premier youth tournament. The Under Fifteens World Cup previously got to edition nine, and the Sporting World Cup is currently on a consecutive run of ten, but despite their popularity, none of them can hold a candle to the Di Bradini Cup.

For the last twelve cycles the tournament has taken place in Valanora, one of the sport’s spiritual homes. Most of us grew up with stories of the five times world champions, and the legendary Vanroian team of the early [WC] Forties. For many of young players taking part in this year’s competition, it will be their first taste of tournament football; bringing the chance to play in front of the cameras and packed crowds. The opportunity to grace the hallowed turf of venues such as the Battleground will bring with it its own set of pressures.

The hosts currently opt not to compete it the tournament, and interestingly, this gives the Di Bradini Cup the sense of a neutral and level playing field. They did win the first ever trophy following the rebrand however, then repeated the feat five cycles later in the DBC6. With their legendary Night Academy, the young Marauders would undoubtedly be a force to be reckoned on home soil – and in a sense, it’s a little sad that we don’t get to see them in action.

It’s hard to believe, but until eighteen months ago, no Schottic club had a single Vanor on their books – not one! Even at it’s peak, when it was the SPL was one of the top ranked UICA associations, with hundreds of foreign players across the top three tiers, we couldn’t manage so much as one pesky Vanor. A travesty, right? Well during the 25th transfer window, all of that changed.

Gideon Riemann, Heike Schoß, Claudia Makatsch, Jutta Palminger and Anja Loos – five 16-year-olds with pluckiness to burn – braved the perpetual rain and dourness of Schottia. Five future stars, one for each World Cup that Valanora have won. Very little was known about them, other than their international potential, and the fact that they had graduated from one of the most prestigious academies in the Multiverse. So much can happen in a teenager’s career, and there are plenty of Handon bars propped up by mournful drunks with tales of how they themselves were once the “next big thing.” But let’s remain optimistic, keep our fingers crossed, and give them the time and space to allow their careers to develop on an even keel. (If football doesn’t work out for them, then happy hour at the Harpooner’s Arms is two til four, Monday to Thursday.)

In the spirit of giving them time to develop, and not apply any undue pressure, it seemed like the most appropriate thing to do would be to rate them on a scale of one to five. At the same time, I hope this serves as something of an introduction into the Five Future Stars.

Gideon Riemann
Age: 17
Position: Left/ Centre Midfield
Club: Blue Coast 1981

Riemann’s destination of choice was the town of San Marco on Port Christopher, and with it, Blue Coat 1981. At one of the island’s most famous clubs, the young Vanor is following in the footsteps of players such as Evelyn Conjure, Ross Renshaw, and Sylvestre, who under Jan Markus Hellensen, once reached the Champions’ Cup semi-final. Nestled amongst the palm trees, hotel blocks, and sunburnt tourists, Coast actually have a decent record at developing young talent, and at the very least, this may serve as a stepping stone in his career.

In his first season with the club, Riemann featured predominantly for the development team, helping them to a respectable tenth place finish in the Schottic Junior Championship. He got his bum onto the bench for the senior squad on occasion, and a couple of cameo appearances at sixteen isn’t bad going. It’s been all-change at the Ocean Shores Stadium this season, however, with Brenecian manager, Daniel Snowden, taking over from Nicolas Lars. Another year older, another year wiser, Riemann has so far made three substitute appearances along with his first start for the club, as he seems to be adjusting well to the new 4-3-3 system.

The Verdict: 2/5
A good young player, pacey, and seems to have his head screwed on. It’s hard to tell how quickly he’ll push on from here, but with four appearances in the first twelve matches, it’s clear that he’s firmly in Snowden’s long-term plans.

Heike Schoß
Age: 17
Position: Attacking Midfield
Club: Cornellians

The Eagles were Schottia’s most successful club in the UICA era, using their two seasons in the now-defunct MPL to give them a bit of financial boost over the other sides. The grey pebbledash houses and muddy fields of Lochend isn’t exactly a location that screams world-class football, but Cornellians have seen their fair share of international stars pass through their doors. Their academy side have won the UICA Youth Champions’ Cup, and that would have undoubtedly been a factor in Schoß deciding to continue her development there.

Cornelians were runners up in the Schottic Junior Championship last season, with Schoß a key figure in the attack. Despite failing to make an appearance for the senior team under Jon Fotan, she was one of the young players who helped take the youth league by storm, forming a lethal attack partnership with Joanna McGidden. Schoß made nineteen starts, and found the back of the net eleven times, as the club went on to finish just three points behind the eventual winner, Willox Street. Similarly to the story at Coast, Cornellians have also seen a change in manager this season, with the highly rated former Union gaffer, Erin Camden, taking the reins. Schoß has been a permanents fixture on the substitutes bench during the new campaign, making eight appearances even scoring her first goal in a 2-1 win over Lammerton.

The Verdict: 4/5
A top class player in the making, who is likely to put a lot of pressure on Mirka, who currently holds the number-10 jersey. Schoß is already drawing comparisons to a certain, Isla Sibučić, and is likely to breaking into the first team proper over the next two seasons.

Anja Loos
Age: 17
Position: Left Wing
Club: Regional Development Side D

Loos has gone down a slightly different root from the other four, joining up with the South Berwick branch of the Schottic National Development Programme. Okay… it might be more night school than Night Academy, but the system has produced its share of Schottia internationals.

Loos was a big player for the all-conquering RDS:D last season, who wiped the floor with the rest of the Regional Division B opposition. The academy sides are ineligible for promotion to the First Division, meaning that they stay in the third tier of Schottic football, despite finishing five points clear of Jena at the top of the table. Loos was an crucial part of the first team, scoring nine goals, and contributing another fourteen assists, whilst being the youngest player in the starting line up. Trading Raynor City for the waterlogged pitches and hatchet-men defenders of the Schottic lower-tiers must have been a wake up call for her - but if it was, she never let it show, as she met each match with the same steely determination. This season it’s been more of the same so far, and while RDS:D have waved goodbye to a few of their star players, Loos has got down to work and battled hard.

Verdict: 3/5
Loos will be a good professional some day soon, it just depends when she wants jump ship and find a club. There are certainly a lot of SPL clubs who would love to add this 17-year-old prospect to their books.

Jutta Palminger
Age: 17
Position: Forward
Club: The Warriors

Despite failing to win promotion last season, the Warriors are still a big club. Not necessarily big in terms of attendances or budget, but big in terms of chronicle and reputation. They are a working-class, workingman’s football club, steeped in history. It will most certainly have been a change of pace for Palminger after leaving the Night Academy, but as we’ll see, she’s probably had the most success of our quintet so far.

The teenager made an instant splash last season, with her lively performances brightening up what was a frustrating season for the Whalers. Almost from the off, Palminger was pushing hard for a starting berth, and proved her versatility and willingness, filling in right across the forward line. She made eight starts and fourteen sub appearances last season, finding the back of the net ten times en route to making the short list for Young Player of the Year. Her second season at the club has seen her promoted to the starting lineup, as well as being handed set-piece duties. She’s always been a skillful player, but she is now starting to add grit to her game (no doubt a byproduct of playing in she Schottic second tier).

The verdict: 4/5
Probably the furthest on in terms of development out of our five, no doubt benefiting from position the Warriors find themselves in. The club will most likely be promoted - if not this season, then soon - and Palminger will need to make a big decision about where her future lies.

Claudia Makatsch
Age: 17
Position: Central Midfield
Club: Willox Street Pirates

Billionaire owner, Mr Willox, has been relentlessly pumping money into his little pet-project for the best part of twenty years. Part of his dream of winning the Champions’ League [Cup] title involved the construction on a multi-million pound youth training complex, where the club set about tapping up the best young talent they could get their hands on. No doubt it was these facilities (along with a big signing-on fee) that convinced Makatsch her future lay on that godforsaken island.

Despite joining up as a long-term prospect, Makatsch’s career took a dramatic turn after her performances in training were enough to catch the eye of Lionel Mah. The manager promoted her to the senior squad, and had her training with the first team from about mid-point last season. In the handful of appearances that she’s made so far, Makatsch has yet to let the side down, showing the strength and composure needed to go toe-toe with the best the SPL has to offer. The Pirates are a club who seem to love a strong female midfielder – Jenny McDonald, Maeve Bronte, Seyda Artîn, Alyss Driver – it’s their archetypal player. Makatsch is a couple of season away from that standard, but there’s no reason why she couldn’t the next in that long line.

The verdict: 5/5
A strong central midfielder, who swapped one world-class academy for another. Makatsch looks well on the road to becoming an established member of their Pirates squad.

She was more like an assistant coach for Stephanie Sweeney. Jessica was always seen as being a highly intelligent player with a future in coaching, and CASE is not wasting any time giving her an opportunity.

Curran Gets Another Chance,
by Chelsea Dufresne, Concord Heights Times


After the team crashed out at the Sporting World Cup, many thought that Jessica Curran’s coaching career at this level had been immediately derailed, or at least there would be a lot of time before she was given another chance. That was not the approach taken by Taylor Connolly, the President of CASE (Cassadagan Associate for Soccer Excellence), who opted to thrust her right back into action for the Di Bradini Cup, and the answer was very simple as to why. “You can’t tell anything from three games of managing teenagers.” Jessica will get at least three more games of managing players that are a little older then teenagers. However we can read between the lines a little bit on this lineup and see that no one was really happy with the Sporting World Cup performance. There is not a single player that is 18 years of age or under on this team. Not that they would be required too, but if any player impressed during that competition, you would think they would be a part of this team in some capacity to get more experience. Typically, we have had a few players in that age group that have also been a part of this team.

Returning to the Di Bradini Cup is a bit of story in itself, as Cassadaigua stopped participating in the tournament, because they felt that, “too many delegations send teams that are too obsessed with wins and not about player development.” The purpose of both of these tournaments is player development, but regardless of whether or not it is the Di Bradini Cup or Sporting World Cup, you see too many media delegations putting the pressure on their squad as if it is an senior team lineup. This has not been the case with our team, but I do feel that may be a little different this time. Curran knows that another flame out at this level will likely result in not getting another chance at this level. Let’s not forget that these tournaments can also be about developing coaches, and that seems to be what is happening with Curran, the long time veteran defender of recent World Cup rosters before serving as an assistant to Stephanie Sweeney in the last World Cup. Sweeney has also coached the vast majority of the junior teams as well, and it seems as if CASE wants to lighten her workload. It is highly probable that Sweeney’s current focus is on the forthcoming Copa Rushmori.

In her press conference, Curran did not throw anyone under the bus in the Sporting World Cup, referencing that effort as, “An example of what can happen when you put together a group of people, who may be, and absolutely are, great young soccer players, who have never played together before and just expect everything to gel. Things didn’t really work out that way, but it was a very limited sample size. That’s why you see scorelines that you would not expect to see at the senior level in those games.” Curran, though, realizes, that the Di Bradini Cup is not much different, “In this tournament, you have players who are older, so that goes a long way and I think they will come together just fine. I have tried to learn where I personally may have went wrong in preparing for the Sporting World Cup to make sure that happens again.”

The one thing that the Di Bradini Cup has in common with Sporting World Cup is that it will not start easy for Cassadaigua. Whereas before they opened up against Baker Park, here they start off against Starblaydia. The Purple Peril also did not play well in the Sporting World Cup, so one hand supports the idea that games in that tournament are often unpredictable, but on the other hand, it means that the Fillies must be ready to go. Starblaydia’s under-21 team is managed by Ázëwyn Fëanáro, who coaches all of the nation’s team, similar to Stephanie Sweeney before CASE opted to lighten her workload. It also goes without saying that Starblaydia has all the motivation they need to do well in this tournament just by the name of the tournament. “Di Bradini”, of course the Starblaydi legend, and “47" representing the last World Cup they won.
