Um the entire point is you're playing for your country. If that's thrown out the window, what point is there in a World Cup?

Ask Higuan (or many of the 1998 French winners) and multiple other soccer players.

That's a pretty unfair comparison.  You can't compare the glory of winning the Dominion World Cup with the dinky imitation "world cup" that soccer uses.

I very much dislike it when people do this. For some of the players they have a citizenship to these other countries so they can go ahead and do it, but with what Joseph was asking, why would someone who's never even been to Russia let alone live there want to be on a Russian team, for example?

You assume I've never been to Russia and that I'm not a citizen.

I don't understand why a province that isn't recognised by the UN as a country is allowed to masquerade as a country for the purposes of sport.  :P

This is obviously still going on and I'll make the thread soon after the ShuffleIT Tourney ends. I've thought more about things but I still do think it will mostly depend on what gets the most amount of good players in.

Removing those teams is an exercise in making people unhappy, seriously unhappy, in order to ... in order to do what exactly?

I find this a good opportunity to ask it here. Is there is any Hungarian player in the community?
Although I doubt I find enough for a semi-competitive team.

We can form an Austro-Hungarian Team...
