You may post your squad lists/rosters for the upcoming qualifying campaign in this thread.

When posting your roster, please include your style modifier. This is a general guide, both to your opponents for RP as well as for the scorinator to take into account, your team's general style of play. The modifiers should range from -5 to +5, where -5 is most defensive and +5 most attacking. Please try to keep these to integers.

Please also include the RP permissions box, as per below, when posting your squad lists. Failure to do so should be taken by opponents to mean "yes" to all. While the RP permissions box is not binding, it is considered good form to follow your opponent's permissions. You may also wish to include stadia information for the qualifying round.

In the event my opponent posts an RP first, they may:

Select my scorers — Yes/No

Sarzonia Stars

Manager: Franz Braddock (83 years old)
The Cafundelense World Cup Hall of Fame manager returns to the pitch after a 12-year retirement to manage the Sarzonian national football team. By all accounts, he is energised by the challenge of returning the Stars to the World Cup finals.
Assistants: Diogo Avarel (41)
Braddock's youthful apprentice joins the Cafundelense legend as one of two assistant managers, much to the chagrin of the Cafundelense football organisation.
Ganz Ijak (53)
The second World Cup Hall of Famer to join the Sarzonian coaching staff, Ijak is considered by some to be a possible successor to Braddock, but not before Braddock decides he's had enough.
Goalkeeping Coach: Horace Sandt (52)
[i]Sandt, the lone holdover from the previous Stars managerial staff, has a storied history for the Sarzonian national team. He was the starting goalkeeper who led the Stars to the World Cup XXII title. During his tenure with the Stars, the team advanced to four consecutive semifinals, becoming just the third team to do so behind Rejistania and Eauz.

Squad Listing
(Note: Starters in BOLD. Team plays a 3-5-2 alignment with a plus-2.5 modifier.)

No. Name Position Height Weight
1 Cody Taylor GK 6'1" 175 pounds
Taylor, 25, signed with Porto Lacruz of Cafundéu's national league after leading the Woodstock Wild to a Sarzonian Football Confederation championship. He finished the year 18-5-1 with a 1.26 goals against average. He is known for having catlike reflexes and has played as a midfielder for a recreation league side.

2 Ben Davis D 5'10" 160 pounds
Davis, 32, is the Stars captain. He previously served in that role for the Portland Timbers, whom he led to a Sarzonian Football Confederation championship. He prides himself on being able to shut down the opponent's most dangerous forward with combination of speed and smarts. Signed a contract with Atlético Jutense in Cafundéu's national league.

4 George Maxwell D 6'5 225 pounds
Dubbed "the brick wall," Maxwell uses size to be a disruptive element as a defensive player. He's also used in an effort to score off headers and the 27-year-old picked up eight goals in 27 matches that way. Recently named to replace Spencer Hicks on the senior national team.

5 Tim Rodney M 5'9 150 pounds
Rodney, 30, plays bigger than his height. On the New Jerusalem Nobles, he plays a rugged fullback when the team plays a 3-5-2, but played as a defensive midfielder in a 4-4-2 alignment when the team suffered several injuries among its defensive players. With Sarzonia adopting a more attack-oriented team, he shifts up to play midfield.

6 George Morrison M 6'2 185 pounds
Drafted out of Joe Gibbs University, Morrison, 24, played for the Nicksia Knights in the SFC until he signed with KT Hotspur in Candelaria and Marquez. He is not a particularly pacey player, but has a cannon of a left leg. He will likely be substituted for a player with more flair if the Stars are trailing a match.

7 Tyler McIntosh D 5'11 165 pounds
The young McIntosh (23 years old) just graduated from Syosset State University after setting the school's record for matches played and matches started. He has played forward on occasion and scored five goals in 12 matches starting up top. He has been known to be rather undisciplined in the back, but does not have enough ball skills to convert to midfielder.

8 Laura Grover M 5'6 125 pounds
Grover, 25, dispelled any questions about whether a woman should start for the Stars by drawing comparisons to Jenna Raven, a star player for both Sarzonia's men's and women's World Cup sides. She has strong scoring touch, notching 11 goals in 27 matches for the Woodstock Justice in Sarzonia's women's league. Her coach? You guessed it, Jenna Raven.

9 Ettore Salivani, Jr. M 5'10 155 pounds
The son of former Sarzonia national team standout and Pacitalian emigre Ettore Salivani, the younger Salivani retains his father's flair, but also picked up on his mother's preternatural calm. He also has outstanding ball skill and is surprisingly adept as a defensive player. Plays for América in Cafundéu's national league. Turned 26 the day before World Cup XLV.

10 Zack Wilson F 6'0 213 pounds
The 24-year-old son of Brian Wilson developed some of his father's flair for the dramatic and led the SFC in goal scoring with 28 goals for the Portland Timbers. Pacey player who spends a lot of time in the weight room. Very difficult for smaller defenders to bring down.

11 Ted Philyaw D 5'11 145 pounds
Philyaw, 31, started for the Sarzonian national team during its last international competition (AOCAF XIX), helping lead the team to a shock second round appearance. Philyaw was recently named the captain of the Saugerties Snakes, owing to his leadership qualities. He's not the fleetest of foot, relying on positioning and anticipating opposing defenders' moves.

12 Colleen Barnaby D 5'8", 135 pounds
Barnaby is the second female representing the Sarzonian Football League, Sarzonia's women's professional league. She plays for the Portland Pride, which developed an intense rivalry with the Woodstock Justice. She has some trouble with more physical midfielders and forwards, but usually has the savvy to avoid problems. She's 29 years old.

13 Clayton Bocanegro M 6'1", 180 pounds
Bocanegro, 29, was a reserve for the Stars during AOCAF XIX and starts here. He is deft with the ball and serves as a playmaking midfielder for the Portland Timbers. He's also the designated corner and free kick taker with an educated right boot.

14 Carletta Ryan D 5'7 135 pounds
By far the most physical player in Sarzonian women's football, the 26-year-old has no problems mixing it up with women or men. Set a women's league record for most yellow cards and red cards in one season. Even former senior national team goon Spencer Hicks wouldn't mess with her.

15 Brad Tremblay M 5'9 162 pounds
Tremblay turned 24 earlier in the year. He has had trouble sticking with a team in the SFC before finally finding a home with the Portland Timbers. He is arguably the fastest player on the Stars and fires the hardest shot on the team, but his shot is not all that accurate.

16 Ben Crosley D 5'11" 170 pounds
The 30-year-old was also a reserve on Sarzonia's last competitive national side but will start here. He has had seven seasons of experience with the Tacoma Tigers and is a strong man-marker on the right side. His best asset is speed, though he's also learning the savvy that will help once his speed begins to go.

17 Matt Lynch F 6'3", 205 pounds
The 29-year-old was the top scorer for the Sarzonian national team during its AOCAF XIX appearance. His tall, lithe frame makes him an inviting target for more aggressive players who invariably find out he can take and dish out punishment. Recently signed a contract with A.F.F. in Cafundéu.

18 Pete Weston M 5'10 165 pounds
Weston brings a lot of energy and a great work rate to the table for the Saugerties Snakes. He is easily the hardest working player on the team. Brian Wilson intends to use Weston to provide a spark off the players' bench in the event the team plays lethargically. He turned 23 years old just before the World Cup began.

19 Reese Nichols F 5'11, 195 pounds
Another starter from the AOCAF XIX squad, Nichols was another important player in the Sarzonian offence. The 30-year-old came back from retirement recently to provide some scoring depth, as well as experience and leadership. He has good pace and strikes a solid ball.

22 Kelvin Russell GK 5'11, 170 pounds
Yet another player from the AOCAF XIX squad, Russell is the number two goalkeeper for this squad. The 29-year-old nearly left the squad in a snit when he lost the job to Cody Taylor, but Brian Wilson and Sandt both convinced him that he would get a chance to play in the World Cup. He is known more for reading shots and positioning than his athleticism.

The Falcons are back. And this time we're not idiotic enough to forget to post a roster. This time, we even have loads and loads of information. Just for you, you kind opponent, to use against us. Yeah.

Well, the nation is filled with Nethertopians. That's a given thing. Most Nethertopians are from Dutch descent. Most other nations refer to them as Nethies. The average Nethie is a bit foul-mouthed, has an opinion about everything, has a bad sense of humour and tends to be not very aggressive. Nethertopia is a constitutional monarchy, ruled by a parliament and has a king, just for the sake of having a king. Nethertopians tend to like their freedom of speech and political freeness. The nation has a rich, capitalistic style of living, but the government has a lovely backup plan for the poorer. There are not very much income difficulties. The nation's sports code is NTH.

Now that that's out of the way, let's get a bit more football orientated.

The Nethertopian fanbase is large in it's own country. Fans of the teams call themselves Falconics. Football is the number one game and is one of the few sports in which one could actually make a worthwhile job of. Professional players are adored by their fans and despised by the opponents' fans, but the whole nation holds the Falcons in high regard, despite their failure in every major competition they participated in yet.
Players from other nation's national teams are also very much respected and will be hosted in the best hotels around, unless the opponents themselves require other treatment.
In the stadium itself the atmosphere is completely different. Then the opponent is the enemy and the first ten minutes of the game are filled with whistle concerts from the crowd when the opponents are in possession. This tends to back down a bit after the ten minutes, except when playing major rivals Candelaria And Marquez, even in friendly matches.

The Falcons will play in three different stadiums during the qualifiers:

The Olympic Stadium
The Olympic Stadium is the largest stadium if Nethertopia. It's a 75,384 seater, located on the north side of the nation's capital, Peregrinus City. It's almost always sunny and nice weather at the location. The stadium has a warm atmosphere. It is used in all friendly matches and the big qualifying matches.

The Home of the Dragon
The Home of the Dragon used to be the home of the Falcons for every match, but is now surpassed as biggest stadium. It still hosts the most interesting qualifying matches, against the teams with KPB rankings similar to Nethertopia. The stadium is still the most state-of-the art architectural building in Nethertopia. It has 44,600 seats.

The Castle
The Castle is able to host 55,360 persons in it and will be used in the matches against the lower ranked teams. It's close to the biggest city of Nethertopia, Stoedt. It's in the south of Nethertopia, where the weather is in between Marine west coast and Mediterranean.

Manager: Sjors Opdeheuvel
Age: 43
Bio: Pretty laid back coach, ex-manager of The Peregrines. Got fired in favour of Ricardo Garcia as coach for CMSC2 team NAPPC, when NAPC and the Peregrines merged. He took the job of leading the U-21 Nethertopian national team to a Di Bradini Cup final and got appointed to the job of Falcon manager pretty quickly afterwards. Opdeheuvel likes to play with a slightly attacking approach. He balances tactic and motivational speeches decently. His job seems to be in a fragile position after the bad CoH campaign last World Cup Cycle and needs to prove his worth immediately.

Assistant Manager: Andrés García
Age: 42
Bio: As the nephew of NAPPC boss Ricardo Garcia, former Falcon and first & current World Champion of Table Tennis you could say that Garcia has his ties with sports. He was the Assistant Manager of Rob Kietecs at Tenderville United and was interim manager when Kietecs left the club. He had to leave in favour of Brian Carson at the club and was appointed AM at the Falcons shortly after. Rumour has it that García will become Opdeheuvel's replacement if the manager of the Falcons fails at his job.

The Nethertopian football team is mostly known as the Falcons, which is their only nickname to date. The players are all professional football players in Rushmore and Atlantian Oceania and play as a normal national team, unless noted otherwise in their biographies.

The kit is once again represented by the true Nethertopian colours: blue, beige and green. The falcon on the chest has made a grand comeback as well.

Nethertopia plays in a 4-2-2-2 formation, with a style modifier of +1, slightly attacking. Caps and goals are current.

Goalkeeper: Mark Water
Age: 24
Number: 12
Caps: 19, Goals: 0
Club: Tenderville United
Bio: After beating Leo Fluck from the position of first keeper at Tenderville shortly before WC45 Water finally got the place at the basic XI of this team. He is unchallenged at his position of first goalie and has a bright future ahead of him. This guy has catlike reflexes, and is renowned for his interceptions from dead ball situations. However, he has been a very bad penalty kick stopper since the start of his career. Under the hands of Carson this seemed to have improved a bit, though.

Left defender: Jerome de Wit (VC)
Age: 30
Number: 2
Caps: 74, Goals: 2
Club: Green Island (C&M)
Bio: This player was found by The Scout in World Cup 43 and has since made it into every basic XI team. With his jumping power and his formidable height of 2.09m (6”8) he’s sure to go up front in dead ball situations. He has a fierce tackle and Jerome goes fearless into every duel he's able to. This guy is a rare tough one. C&M's Green Island have signed him a few seasons ago. His age is slowly catching up with him, though and other left backs, like his brother Syb de Wit, are looking to secure his position.

Central defender: Yannick de Woudt
Age: 24
Number: 5
Caps: 35, Goals: 0
Club: Arrigo Portugese (C&M)
Bio: With the switch from 3-5-2 to the current more controlling 4-2-3-1 play in WC44 De Woudt has unexpectedly gained a basic position. This guy is less aggressive than the other basic defenders, but has a more controlling style of play. He has a nice header. He doesn’t like to get up front, but is quite useful with corners and indirect free kicks. He has yet to score for the Falcons.

Central defender: Gregory van Houten tot Schaagen
Age: 28
Number: 4
Caps: 59, Goals: 1
Club: Candelaria-Allemali (C&M)
Bio: Has it’s name from some old, medieval barony. He is now secured of a base place and is ready for it. With his capabilities he should be able to lead the defence to keep the ball out of the net. With him in the basic XI the defence gets a little more speed, and a little less toughness. He is mostly noted for his name in the CMSC, but his play has not been bad. He even was to be found on high play in the list of the best XXXII defenders, grabbing the third prize. Gregory is a very consistent player, but his on-field appearance is quite nonchalant.

Right defender: Alex Rafaela
Age: 21
Number: 3
Caps: 5, Goals: 0
Club: Tenderville United
Bio: Rafaela has made his international debut as starter for the Falcons in last Cup of Harmony. He has shown potential in the NWD and should be ready for the international level. He joined Tenderville United this year and will hunt for domestic prizes with them. With his greediness to get the ball forward and his speed he should be a great addition to the attacking midfielders, to combine with them and try to get the ball in front of the goal. He tends to be a little overenthusiastic when attacking, but this hasn't lead to major problems yet.

Central midfielder: Thomas Schaak (C)
Age: 26
Number: 6
Caps: 81, Goals: 4
Club: El din Marbles (C&M)
Bio: One of The Scout's discoveries while in control of the Falcons at the time of WC 43. His control over the ball is perfect, as is his passing. He’s quite quick, has a good tackle, a good shot and Schaak is mentally very strong. He also possesses a natural talent for leadership. Schaak is considered to be Nethertopia's best player, although defensive players tend to get ignored for strikers. Schaak is at his best when he plays a match unnoticed, which means he had done his job right. He signed a contract with the Marbles six years ago, but according to several sources he's unhappy with the club's progress and ready to leave for a bigger one as soon as the opportunity arises...

Central midfielder: Joãio
Age: 25
Number: 66
Caps: 23, Goals: 4
Club: Marquez-Onwere (C&M)
Bio: João Junqueira Ramírez is a half Cafundelese, half Candelariasian Nethertopian midfielder, who takes a great free kick, splendid through passes and a good tackle. He used to play for Stoedtcanal CU, a mediocre team in the NWD. After keeping them up in the first division he signed a contract with CMSC club Marquez-Onwere, as one of their major signings. A lot is expected from Joãio, who tends to be a controlling midfielder with an urge to play forward. He's able to play dirty when neccesary and seems to love to do so, a habit that he didn't show at his old club.

Left attacking midfielder: Frank de Monnik
Age: 24
Number: 7
Caps: 26, Goals: 0
Club: Sultani FK (KC)
Bio: De Monnik was discovered during the WC44 campaign by The Scout and made his international debut one year after, when the team tried to survive in the Cup of Harmony 35. This guy seems to be good, with a lovely control and short pass. He used to play for Koselic team Sultani FK, but joined FC DePardenti after the nation ceased to exsist. FC DeP manager Abdoulaye Soro has been very elusive in his praise for this attacking midfielder and Opdeheuvel seems very fond of him as well.

Right attacking midfielder: Erwin Visser
Age: 21
Number: 10
Caps: 36, Goals: 6
Club: El din Marbles (C&M)
Bio: Erwin is, most of all, a penalty expert. This guy also really, really loves through balls. He has a strong tackle, for a midfielder. He’s considered to be very loyal. This guy has a nice shot from long range. He is not a very strong player, though. He has a good prospect for the future, having signed at the Nethertopia-loving Marbles some time ago. He is now ready for the big team, just like his cousin Erik. He is considered to be a fan-favourite, even more than his cousin, due to his slender, falcon like appearance and down-to-earth behaviour. The Falconics chant his personal hymn, Erwin falc-eyes every time he's on the ball.

Striker: Ricky Visser
Age: 22
Number: 9
Caps: 48, Goals: 24
Club: El din Marbles (C&M)
Bio: While his real name is Erik Visser, Ricky has recently chosen to use a common name. His shirt is also printed with 'Ricky' instead of 'Visser'. A very prolific player, able to score with ease. He is short, however, and can’t make a good header. He is developing a good free kick. He really knows how to shoot, but he has a weak left foot. He doesn’t have the highest work rate, but he makes up for with the goals he scores and the technique and feeling he puts into play. He has been in great form in his first season at the Marbles and was rumoured to look for a bigger club. After a rather disappointing second season he seemed to have backed down from this row. With the switch to a two-attackers system Visser will no longer be up forward alone, a thing that will relieve him from the past pressure of the last World Cup cycle.

Striker: Arnold Postman
Age: 26
Number: 15
Caps: 0, Goals: 0
Club: AFC MN Smith (C&M)
Bio: Postman was playing in the Nethertopian First Amateur Division when the decision for a professional Nethertopian competition was made. FC DePardenti was looking for a striker at the time and signed him. In his first season at the club he left a good impression and went on to win the Gold Ball award. He was noticed by C&M club MN Smith and was quick with his decision to join the team. His outstanding play last season earned him a place at the Falcons. He tends to score a lot, but is never afraid to look for a better opportunity than shooting from his position.

Goalkeeper: Wouter van Dalen
Age: 38
Number: 1
Caps: 98, Goals: 0
Bio: Wouter started as 19 year old at the Peregrines in the amateur Nethertopian competition. He was directly noticed by Rob Kietecs due to extraordinary save he made in the entire year. What followed was a spot in the national team. He never left the Peregrines, even after their merger. His first season on the Candelariasian to notch level has been disappointing so far. He’s an experienced goalie, with a few caps. and ready to keep the ball out of the goal whenever his counterpart isn't at the ready. His somewhat old age shouldn’t be too much of a worry, but it has cost him his place in the starters' line up. He will try to hit the 100 caps, which he should.

Central defender: Jan Wildernis
Age: 32
Number: 13
Caps: 75, Goals: 1
Club: Marquez-Onwere (C&M)
Bio: Wildernis is able to give a great long pass from the sidelines and is quite effective in his tackles. He has an aggressive nature on and off the pitch. If he gets on the field he will certainly pick up some yellow cards. His starter spot has been overtaken by the young Rafaela, who has shown to be more consistent than the hard working Wildernis. The experienced player is still a lovely watch on the field, though.

Right defender: Dalton Quilms
Age: 27
Number: 18
Caps: 0, Goals: 0
Club: FC DePardenti
Bio: Quilms tends to switch clubs every season due to his aggressive nature and contract issues, but finally seemed to have come to rest at FC DePardenti. Abdoulaye Soro tends to have a soothing effect on him. Quilms is, like his off field personality, a rough and aggressive defender, with harsh tackles and a foul mouth. He has no conscience whatsoever and doesn't seem to regard any of his actions. We'll probably see him next WC cycle again, but in a CMSC team.

Central Midfielder: Michel Mulder
Age: 22
Number: 14
Caps: 0, Goals: 0
Club: Green Island (C&M)
Bio: Oh, look. Another Nethie playing in the CMSC. We tend to feed them Candelariasians all our players, don't we? At least this one is a special case. After his DB7 run the -then 17 year old- Mulder joined GIZ, but has never seen real sweet action with the team. He's a superb footballer, preferably operating from the left, but useable in the centre of the midfield as well. He's still very young, but Opdeheuvel tends to give younglings chances. He's also slightly crazy and has several red cards at his old club, Ratos Island and the GIZ reserves for amazingly horrifying tackles, punches and, on one occasion, breaking the referee's nose and giving him a concussion with a karate kick after a fierce discussion if a throw in was performed correctly or not. We personally hope he gets a lot of subs, it's always exciting to see what this player brings to the pitch.

Attacking midfielder: Dries Pannekoek
Age: 27
Number: 8
Caps: 75, Goals: 3
Club: Atlético Insular (Cafundéu)
Bio: Pannekoek (pancake in Dutch) is one of the more experienced Falcons at this point. He’s the kind of player that gives defenders nightmares, with his speed and pass-by actions. He used to be fragile and easily taken down, but seemed to have overcome his proneness to injuries. Has transferred to Cafundéu a few seasons ago. He's the main victim of the tactical switch of Opdeheuvel to two attackers and is new used as a sub.

Striker: Darko Soro
Age: 17
Number: 11
Caps: 4, Goals: 3
Club: Raynor City United (ESF)
Bio: Taken to the World Cup squad because of... Well, mostly his skills, but his dad being the all-time top scorer of the Falcons could play a role in it too. His ability to score is already noticed and it didn't take very long before Raynor City United bought the ex Blue-White Udenbergen player for a reported fee of $5m. He deals with a lot of competition up front there and the question is if he's ever able to break through.

Striker: Daniel Bakker
Age: 18
Number: 46
Caps: 0, goals:0
Club: Albrecht Turkish (C&M)
Bio: Bakker was born and raised in Albrecht, with Nethertopian parents. His talent as a striker was noticed by Albrecht Turkish and he was drafted into their academy. He has continued to develop himself and is now a regular substitute at the club. He mostly plays the role of second striker, thus giving much assists, while looking for a way to find the net from the second line. He has a great long-distance shot, but fails to keep his nerve when one-on-one with the goalkeeper most of the time. Bakker is also tall and is useful in dead-ball situations because he has a nice header.


Goalkeeper: Maximilliano Barone
Age: 22
Number: 23
Caps: 0, Goals: 0
Club: The Grey Towers
Bio: Maximilliano has some Italian blood, from... Somewhere. We're not sure. He's a decent goalkeeper, selected mostly because he's the best goalie the NWD has to offer. He's tall and likes to dive. He's still young and able to grow to a level beyond Van Dalen, but most experts say he'll never surpass Mark Water.

Left defender: Syb de Wit
Age: 24
Number: 15
Caps: 0, Goals: 0
Club: Cathedral City (C&M)
Bio: Syb looks like he's going to be the follow-up of his big brother, Jerome. While certainly not at the level of the other De Wit, Syb has shown potential in leading his old club, Gretor Sport, to international football. Before the start of the new season he moved westwards, to neighbours Candelaria And Marquez, to play for Cathedral City. His transfer raised several eyebrows in the Marbles-favoured Nethertopia. Syb is a real defender, in the meaning that he doesn't get up much, like his brother. This also explains why left midfielders tend not to score too much in the Falcons.

Central defender: Caerus Lamarti
Age: 25
Number: 20
Caps: 0, Goals: 0
Club: VVV Ran
Bio: Well, he's from the champions of the Nethertopian WendellCorp Division after all. We were bound to put one in our team, weren't we? We would be crazy if we wouldn't. Mister Lamarti is a very decent defender, who's been selected for his lovely tackles and his ability to bluntly defend, while others want to resolve things by playing actual football. Caerus looks like a WC45 Holy Empire player, but with a proper kit. However, he is, unlike to real cavemen, an intelligent player and person.

Central midfielder: Marcel van der Laan
Age: 24
Number: 16
Caps: 2, Goals: 0
Club: AFC MN Smith (C&M)
Bio: Prefers the centre of the field, but is able to take the right side as well. Your average central midfielder. Strong, leader capabilities, likes do discuss arbitral decisions with the referee. Has an extraordinary free kick. Good stuff, this one. Not as good as our starters, though. He captains his club in the Candelarias.

Attacking midfielder: Roel Kuypers
Age: 26
Number: 17
Caps: 2, Goals: 0
Club: Tenderville United
Bio: Kuypers is best for a position behind the striker because of his ability to shoot from range and give good short passes. The attacking midfielder is having a decent season at his old club, Ratos Island, and he's been rewarded with several call-ups and substitutes at the Falcons. He joined Tenderville this summer and will be looking for gold.

Striker: Gino Kuypers
Age: 27
Number: 19
Caps: 0, Goals: 0
Club: SC Rinaldi (ESF)
Bio: Not related to Roel. This fellow is a decent striker, but will never be able to gain a decent spot in the Falcons. He performs well in Valanora, but with the likes of Soro and Bakker this player won't be able to secure a spot in the first XI. He's decent enough for a reserve role, though.

World Cup Forty-Six
Macabee Squad

The Macabee National Football Team will be competing in World Cup 46 with an all-new squad, composed of the best players that hold the Macabee nationality. What’s interesting is that players of the previous two world cups will have not been called up to play for the national team, as new manager Gíem Delá has expressed his interests in culturing a team which will be available for at least the next three world cups (including 46). Nevertheless, there are a handful of players that have already made impressions on foreign soil, as they play for foreign leagues. Manager Delá’s goals are visible, though, given the low average age of the squad and the relatively few older players (mostly central defenders and experienced midfielders needed to drive the game). The majority of players are under the age of twenty-five, showing the manager’s ambitions to form a squad which in the following tournaments can be formed into a powerful group of players, setting precedent for all future teams. In other words, he is sowing the seeds for the team’s future success. Many of these players will continue to form the core of the team, as it takes on new players in the distance future.

Historically speaking, the lack of vision for the future may be one of the leading causes of the team’s mediocre world rank. Although the Macabee National Team is “in the middle”, this “success” can be attributed more to the money put forth by the government and other institutions to fund the team and by the size of the Empire itself (almost thirteen billion citizens). The team has never had an exceptional squad, and this may be the impeding factor in the team’s success (apart from the fact that their appearance on the world stage has been on and off, depending on the martial situation inside the country). But, with an unprecedented era of stability, economic growth and liberalism it’s only proper that the nation’s national sports team prosper proportionally. The establishment of regional peace has allowed national sports organizations to focus on the world stage, once again. This has allowed team managers to focus on the future, without doubting whether or not his actions will be relevant. Perhaps this is the leading factor to Manager Delá’s sudden ability to not worry so much about the current average team skill as opposed to the future average team skill.

And so, we can only hope that Gíem Delá will carve a squad which will actually qualify within the next three to five world cups.

The Kit

The home kit, designed and crafted by the skilled Starblaydi “kit-makers”, is white, gold and black—the colors of the Imperial flag. The most distinguishing factors of the home kit is the Imperial Eagle that spreads across the front and the back, and the iron cross positioned on the left breast of the front side of the jersey. The shorts are mostly all-white, with a distinguishable iron cross and a strip of yellow, which extends from the jersey. This kit has been the identifying kit of the Macabee National Football Team since World Cup 44.

The away kit is similar, but boasts of the addition of the color light blue. The blue covers half of the original whit surface area. The gold has been, for the most part, eliminated and replaced by either white or blue, although remnants of gold remain along the collar and the back and front.

Squad Listing
Lars Kíendar (21), Goalkeeper: Lars Kíendar is the starting goalkeeper for Royal Club Española, one of the most successful teams in the Ligue Imperiotech (2016/2017 champions). He has a history of “standing in the right place, at the right time”, and is good at protecting the goal against breakaways. He also works well under pressure. Unfortunately, his young age (twenty-one) precludes him of having the necessary experience to be comparable to world renowned goalkeepers. Despite this, he has a bright future ahead of him, not just as a goalkeeper in the league, but as the starting goalkeeper for the national team.

Níen Desart (25), Goalkeeper: Níen Desart is the starting goalkeeper for Illusqué, another Ligue Imperiotech team. He is, however, considered second to Lars Kíendar, although much of this has to do with Illusqué’s placement in the 2016/2017 season (last).

Nantes Resien (23), Wing Back: The young Nantes Resien is one of the premier wing backs in the Ligue Imperiotech. He plays for Royal Club Española and is one of the leading causes for the excellent connection between the defense and the offense in the team, which is in turn a major cause of their success in the league. He is also one of the best domestic set-piece kickers, explaining his often time played role of free kicker during direct kicks. He is one of the leading scorers of this type; scoring directly from the free-kick into the goal.

Lisander Tíermark (22), Wing Back: Lisander Tíermark is another well known and excellent wing back, and one of the few players on the national team which do not play in domestic league teams. Tíermark is a wing back for the Quintessence of Dust league team Highmark City Blues. Prior to his international career, he played for Fedala Imperial. He is fast, and is capable of both offensive and defensive tasks. His ambition, however, has led him to play an offensive role at the expense of defensive play, sometimes leaving a gap on the wings of the team’s defense.

Bur Xetal (19), Wing Back: Bur Xetal is one of the youngest players on the national team. His main purpose is to develop his skill and experience in order to formulate him into a good winger to replace others as they grow older, or if they are injured. Xetal is fast, smart and an extraordinary defender. He can only assist in the tasks in the midfield, and is good with connecting with strikers on top for quick counterstrikes. He is a valuable asset in the counter attack, and is known for extremely lethal accuracy when it comes to assisting a striker for a goal.

Tern Fedal (29), Center Back: Tern Fedal is one of the older players in the team, called-up for his undeniable experience as a central defender. His experience allows him to accurately forecast the moves of opposing strikers, cutting them off from the ball and the reducing the amount of opportunities presented for the opposing team to attempt a shot-on-goal. Despite his age, he’s also fast. He is, unfortunately, shorter than other players and so is not as good with dealing with high balls into the area. He plays for Port Tenacious.

Filep Fernán (27), Center Back: Another experienced center back, Fernán plays for Port Tenacious, as well. Both Fernán and Fedal have very good communication, explaining their pairing up. Fernán is slower than his teammate, but is taller, giving him the distinct ability of clearing high balls out of the area and reducing the chances of a goal scored due to headers.

Sergi Gut (24), Center Back: The relatively young Gut is a “center back in training”. That is, his purpose is to train and gain experience to replace either Fedal or Fernán in the future. He is one of the players which will form the core of the team in future world cups, allowing for a gradual increase in average skill. He current plays for Illusqué; his contract is coming to an end at the end of this season and he has expressed interests in playing on a foreign team. He is likely to come out a lot during the qualifying matches for the World Cup group stage.

Nóa Cert (24), Center Back: Another twenty-four year old center back, Cert is one of the best young central defenders in the Ligue Imperiotech. He plays for Enigma and is considered the best defender on his team.

Dertísh Malfor (25), Defending Midfielder: Malfor’s role comes through the fact that the team’s leading formation is 4-5-1; it is often that the team plays with five midfielders, and one of these midfielders always takes part in defensive tasks. Malfor, in this respect, is the best defensive midfielder available to the national squad. He plays for Port Elusive

Sergi Bert (18), Defending Midfielder: Sergí Bert is Malfor’s replacement in case of injury, and he is a young, talented midfielder. His role is also for training for future purpose, although Malfor is also relatively young. Sergí Bert plays for a semi-professional team outside of the official league system. He has caught the eye of several league managers, although Bert has expressed interests in playing in a foreign league. He and his agents are hoping that this world cup will be his grand debut into the international world of professional football. He is the only non-professional player on the team.

Joán Zeneti (21), Attacking Midfielder: Joán Zeneti is another international player. He is an attacking midfielder for the Somewhereistonian team Qasarian Sparta B. Nevertheless, he is extremely skillful and has been a key asset in Qasarian Sparta’s aspirations to rise to the “premier league”. He is also one of the best attacking midfielders present for the Macabee National Football Team, and is young enough to guarantee his presence in the next two world cups, at the very least. His strengths are in organization, and he has the capability to clearly set up lines of attack with other midfielders and strikers. That is, he’s successful in presenting opportunities for the goalscorers, and he has scored many goals himself. His capabilities as a midfielder have attracted the interest of other international managers, and he is likely to have a promising career.

Ses Dermán (24), Attacking Midfielder: Dermán’s main strengths are speed and range of shot, allowing him to connect with strikers for quick counter attacks. He is also known for his maneuverability on the field, to create scoring opportunities once the opposing team has formulated its lines of defense. Dermán plays for Eleptik, another team in the Ligue Imperiotech.

Mermán Gert (23), Attacking Midfielder: Gert is a second-string attacking midfielder, who plays for Illusqué. He shares similar attributes to the two former attacking midfielders (wingers), although he does not enjoy their general skill. Nevertheless, he is another young addition to the team.

Terj Mitoraj (28), Center Midfielder: Mitoraj is the current “core of the team”, and is considered the nation’s best midfielder. He is good at unclogging the field and freeing the ball. His role is to add experience to the team, slowing or speeding the tempo as he sees fit. In that sense, he can make and break plays, making use of the players around him to set up an opportunity to score a goal. In this application he is undeniably a genius, and his skill and capability has brought great success upon the Ligue Imperiotech team Adventubier. He is one of the few players to have played in previous international football competitions.

Santi Vervánt (26), Center Midfielder: He is Mitoraj’s right-hand man, so to speak, and also plays for Adventubier. He is also very intelligent and good at creating plays. The main advantage to his presence is to unclog the field should Mitoraj be tightly marked. This gives the team another superb playmaker, in case their foremost playmaker is adequately covered and pressured. He gives the Macabee midfield a very powerful presence in the face of similarly skilled teams.

Georgi Rest (24) and Víeb Tahol (17), Center Midfielders: These two midfielders have similar skills and they both play for Royal Club Española (making this team the largest contributor to the national taem). Víeb Tahol is really the growing prodigy of the national team, and is likely to play in upcoming under-twenty-one competitions, as well. They are both fast and able to connect with other players, making them valuable assets for any playmaker in setting up a strategy. They can also help in defensive tasks.

Mika d’Angíel (24), Striker: Mika d’Angíel is one of the most valued strikers in the world, and already made his international presence during an under-twenty-one competition in Starblaydia, and then during both World Cup 44 and World Cup 45. He is the premier striker of the national team, and one of the highest scorers. He currently plays in the Yaforite league.

Shost Glen (21), Striker: Glen is a younger, powerful forward. His main strength is his accuracy, since he is not too good with creating opportunities to score. He is powerful when he has another player to connect with him on the top, since he is good at controlling and accurately shooting the ball with much strength. As a result, he is more of a direct attacker and mostly used when the midfield has control of the game.

Nether Falsó (21), Striker: Falsó is another powerful striker with his eye on goal, although he is not as accurate as Glen. He is, however, a better playmaker, allowing him to set up a shot if the shot is not immediately clear to him. This makes him a more valuable asset when the midfield does not have control of the game. As a result he and Glen alternate as substitutes during games, depending on how the midfield is doing.

World Cup 46 Team Info

Silexhera play in an all-green kit (a very deep green colour) with white trim. Our away colours are a light grey with white and black trim, charcoal-grey shorts and light grey socks.
We're playing this tournament with an ultra-defensive 5-4-1 formation, with three centre-halves, two full backs, a flat four in midfield and one quick yet limited striker. In the unlikely event that we score against you, its probably either from a set-piece (free kick or corner lofted hopefully into the box) or via a counterattack if you've poured too many men forward. Our strikers aren't great but if they get five one-on-ones with your goalie they might score one. At a push. Most of our goals with be flukes, so feel free to RP that, and a lot of your goals might be from defensive inadequacies on our part, so RP that if you like.
We're a team of part-timers from a tiny country with no domestic league system in place (we have a handful of vocational football clubs that play friendlies against each other now and then) but in coming years we hope to set up some kind of official Football Association. For now, the squad is picked by a couple of the club owners, who have appointed a manager to pick and train the team.
In our own time-line we've been playing football for about 25 years, but using early 20th century rules (three-player offside rule, kidney shaped 6-yard box etc) until a couple of years ago. We believed we'd invented the sport until we invented the television (which we also believed we were first to until we built one, turned it on and received foreign channels) and saw World Cup 45 played out.

Stadium: City University Athletics Centre. Capacity: 3,650 (room for 1,225 away fans, plus any tickets you can find on the black market) a stadium with all the amenities you could ask for but was really never meant to be used for football. The pitch is slightly too wide and slightly too short, (almost square, in fact) which doesn't exactly lend itself to our defensive style. The pitch is also too soft and cuts up terribly in bad weather.


Players numbered 1-11 are starters in a 5-4-1 formation.

Paul HART (43)
Paul is arguably the only person in the country that could possibly have taken this job. Only a handful of Silexherans have ever left the nation's boundaries and he's one of them. He used his visits abroad to learn everything he could about international football and is therefore pretty well studied. That's not to say he has any idea how to manage a football team though.

1. Colm FISHER (34)
As his name suggests, he's a fisherman by day. At six feet six and sixteen stone he's a large presence in goal and is good with his hands. Unfortunately, he has the reactions of a dead sloth and thus is easily beaten by powerful shots no matter how accurate they are. A quick turn-and-shot inside the area will often catch him completely by surprise.
13. David FALLOW (17)
The youngest of nine children, David always found himself surplus to requirements at his father's farm and so had more opportunities to find work elsewhere, which is how he came into football. Is the opposite of Colm Fisher in almost every way. Great reactions (his farm was near Johnny Sporadic) but not great with crosses and a bit on the small side at five feet ten.

2. Smokey BLACK (16)
From a family of blacksmiths in Silica City, Smokey is a hard-working right-back and probably one of the team's better players. Has the speed and endurance to get up and down the wings for most of a game if required to.
3. Carl MEDIC (27)
Quite slow for a wide player but decent enough in the tackle and is very fit. As the name suggests he's a field medic by profession and so often doubles up as the squad's physio.
12. David THATCHER (30)
Been around Silexheran football for a long time, playing for a variety of clubs around the country. Can play in most positions on a football pitch and so could be used as a midfielder or striker, but there are far more better players than him filling those positions.

4. James FORRESTER (21)
From Negrest, as the name suggests. (Negrest is pretty much a forrest) Forrester is very tall at six feet four but not too powerful, or quick, or talented, or anything.
5. James PARTICLE (24)
A graduate of Silica University with a BSC in Particle Physics. A drop-out of the school of defending with a Major in Slapstick. He is, however, fairly tall and quick and his ability to read the game often makes up for his sparsity of any kind of skill.
6. Couser GRANITE (39) Captain
Old and slow, but a natural leader and a man the others can feel they trust, if only because he's so damn huge. Once scored a goal from outside the area with his jawline. Has always been a terrible footballer and is the king of the mistimed tackle but the team always play worse without him.
15. Paul SOBERSLAD (37)
His name suggests he's the son of someone called 'Sober'. His talent suggests he's a drunk. A seasoned amateur player with a few smaller teams around Onca, he's well past his peak now.
16. Hogan CARBON (16)
Promising young defender with a fair bit of ball-playing skills and strong despite his age and height at only five feet eight tall. Would be better utilised as a midfielder but in such a defensive team his talents are needed as a ball-playing centre-half.
17. Lewis HILL (30)
Very much a classic central defender, in that he's tall, slow and can't pass.
18. John DORMAN (41)
Veteran of plenty of amateur games around Silexhera. Was a very good midfielder in his day but is well past that peak now.

7. Callum HOLIDAY (31)
One of the few people to have travelled abroad from Silexhera before the inauguration of the football team, hence the name. Didn't use his time abroad to study football, evidently. Plays as a ball-winning central midfielder, but rarely wins the ball and is frequently out of position.
8. Yancy FETCHER (39)
Like Dorman was a very talented player in his day, but his day was almost twenty years ago and any influence his play may have had has now been diminished to the point of non-existence. Hasn't lost his touch or feel for the ball, but lacks the pace to do a midfield job properly.
10. Kelly SPORADIC (16)
Could be the first 'star' of Silexheran football. Has excellent ball skills as well as lightening speed and a powerful shot. As his name suggests he's from near Johnny Sporadic but thankfully nowhere near Idiots.
11. Tam DOCTOR (32)
A doctor, of course, and a good one, but not a good footballer. Frequently lacks match fitness but has passable ball-skills to make up for it. Utilised as a left-midfielder for his pace over ten yards but still not expected to give opposing full-backs any trouble.
19. Gregor BARMAN (30)
A barman, as the name suggests. Such is the sparsity of talent in Silexheran his own club is actually a pub team. Not a bad player, per se, just not a good one. At all.
20. James IDIOTSMAN (18)
The only player in the squad to hail from the town of Idiots, and speaks their strange and disturbing language. Surprisingly though he isn't as dim as you'd expect and frequently makes thoughtful insights that are overlooked because of his stupid language.

9. Gopher SPORASKID (19)
Sporaskid is not the cleverest player in the team and definitely not the best. He is, however, very, very fast. Think of a three-legged cheetah. Still very quick but always pulls his shots to the left. Always.
14. Panther DOCTOR (17)
A half-brother of midfielder Tam Doctor, Panther is a better player than Sporaskid is almost every single way, but is used as a substitute because of his comparative lack of pace which, in a team that will only score, if ever, via counter attack, makes him less desirable than Sporaskid.

Style of Play: Physical and tough, our players look for contact early and often. Our defense is the strongpoint of the team, though the Midfield showed great improvement during the Baptism of Fire Tournament.

Notable Players:

Roberto Torinese #9, Age 31 --- The Captain of the team and its best defender. Torinese is a field general and always makes sure his defenders are in the right spots. He may have lost a step from his days in his prime, but he is a brilliant football mind.

Paolo Mastino #54, Age 27 --- A ferocious and skilled defender. He plays without regard to anyone and has been called a dirty player by more than one opponent. However, he is very good at getting inside his opponents’ head and throwing off their game.

Hossein Bolognese #7, Age 23 --- Bolognese is a young and rising player who had an outstanding performance in the Baptism of Fire. He emerged as the team’s best passer and set up man, leading the team in assists. He takes Italia Orientale’s corners.

Ishmael Tarblus #10, Age 22 --- Tarblus is another rising young player, who dominated in the BoF tournament, leading Italia Orientale in goals with 6. He is extremely quick and has a very accurate shot. He takes most of Italia Orientale’s free kicks.

Luca Del Castello #13, Age 26 --- A tall and physical striker, Del Castello is very good with the ball in the air. He finished tied with Tarblus for the team lead in goals during the BoF with 6 as well. He is 1.93 meters tall and 104.3 kg, he is a force to be reckoned with in the box.

There was a piece of paper somewhere in Errindurra, it didn't didn't matter how it's found it circumstances, it opened itself up straightened it self out into a piece of paper that looked as if it had just come out of the ream. The words on it contained the following information.


Pinging Tree... Goal Keeper. The Pinging Tree doesn't seem to exist except when it thinks that the goal's in danger and then pings up through the ground and well and truly over the height of the goal posts before returning back underground. This is it's only form of movement which can cause some problems should there be a huddle around the post.

Jibbering Teapots - With their spout it can only say Jibber Jabber Joo, but there is a very complex language that is hidden with tone and unnunciation very important to the meaning of each Jibber Jabber Joo. There are 3 of these as Defenders

Clanging Mice - The mice are the pranksters of the team always making noise, bt being mice, they are fast and quick and are very confident in their speed and ball handling abilities, these are the 3 midfielders

Monkeys - Monkey's who like to say Boo when they go for shots at Goal but also can get easily distracted by Bananas. They like to monkey around play games, shifting the ball them easily, findinfg unique ways of gertting the ball around the defenders and even on occasion using their tails. These 4 make up the strikers of the team.

No Team Colours/Uniform - Have you ever tred to find a way to clothe a tree?

The piece of paper floated up into the air meeting an envelope that inexplicably came along, the paper folded itself up and inserted itself into the open envelope. Letters came together onto the envelope to give the address for the Adi'hani FA, one of the hosts for the World Cup. The letter left Errindurra, over the vast expanse of water, the letter flew through Liventia and into Adi'han. Where it came to it's destination.

Golgothastan has not participated in international sport before, but now Starálfur Bort Chocowitz has dispatched a squad for World Cup 46 and the preceding Baptism of Fire. Football is very popular among Golgothastanis, but they are not very good at it, a diet of root vegetables and mostly dead horse failing to provide the kind of balanced diet top-flight athletes really need. This, and the fact the squad consists of 23 unsigned international novices, does not bode well, but the Golgothastanis plan on playing with pride and aggression, and will be very pumped up after hearing their national anthem, which is 12 minutes long; ( they often insist on an encore. In the Baptism of Fire, Golgothastan was knocked out in the quarter-finals after winning their group and boosting a load of antique silverware.

Nation: The Svefn-g-englar of Golgothastan (GOL)

Demonym: Golgothastani

Team nickname: “Ný batterí” (“new batteries”; it was more sensible than some of the proposed alternatives)

Kit: Black (away kit: also black). Instead of player numbers, Golgothastanis have their squad numbers expressed using 4 4s ( e.g. Guðni Rúnar's number is not 6, but 4!/4 x 4/4. Naturally, this plus the name issue (see below) can lead to substantial confusion among foreign commentators.

Home stadium: Veröld ný óg óð (“Brave new world”). It is built in the distinctive architectural style of Golgothastan, that is, it's a crumbling fire-hazard. The fans have set up a pretty decent turnip vodka still in the Góðan daginn stand. Visiting fans should not expect to find luxurious accommodation, and are advised to drink heavily to take the edge off the experience.

Coach: Jack Barryson.
Formerly known as Jack Weisgaarden, the coach's shockingly unimpressive revenue includes writing for the popular TV comedy show An Introduction to Libertarian Economics, lengthy service as a tractor salesman, and 3 years at the UN, despite Golgothastan resigning from that organization after a few months, but shows no obvious mention of footballing prowess. However, he is the only person from Golgothastan to have any experience of foreigners and as such has mainly been assigned to make sure the younger players don't get into too much trouble, or at least to show them where to bury the bodies afterwards.

TEAM (starters in bold)

1. Valdímar Bragason (31; samskeyti conservation technician)
Valdímar is a reasonably good goalkeeper, and started in all six of their BoF games. He is confident at coming out for crosses but fares less well in one-on-ones where his natural gangliness works against him. He was bitterly disappointed to see his brother Ìngmar dropped in favour of Þorður, and the two frequently drunkenly fight, often during games.
12. Guðmundur Stefanson (26; textile factory worker)
21. Reynir Alexandersson (28; insurance salesman)

2. Þorvaldur Hallgrímsson (25; tractor parts store detective) - LD
A nippy left-back, Þorvaldur would make more of an attacking threat if it wasn't for his disconcerting habit of wandering off the pitch in pursuit of Golgothastani fans stealing things - a regular occurrence.
4. Hrafn Víðisson (20; independent religious memorabilia salesman) - RD
Hrafn was intended to start in the BoF but ended up not playing a single game after stealing thorium, blowing up a railway line, and being banished - a punishment he evaded so he could do on a crime spree at the Errinunderan palace. A useful right-back and a trader in religious-themed merchandise, he provides attacking crosses from the right, and glow-in-the-dark crosses with luminous Jesus for unbeatable prices.
5. Arnþór Finnsson (24; improv actor) - LCD
A dependable centreback, Arnþór's professional activities mean if the team is losing he will continually dive to earn free-kicks and penalties.
6. Guðni Rúnar Steingrímsson (35; tractor factory worker) - RCD
One of the team's old war-horses among a lot of young colts, Guðni Rúnar is tall, quick, and strong, but has a habit of launching immense long balls up the field, leaving the midfield feeling a bit left out.
14. Þorgeir Sturlason (22; forklift truck driver)
17. Eyjólfur Jóhansson (26; good cop)
18. Haraldur Arnórsson (26; bad cop)
20. Guðberg Þorvaldsson (25; design tech teacher)
23. Jon Smarason (33; guitar technician)

3. Birgir Friðbjörnsson (28; doctor) - DM, captain
Birgir is a natural leader who plays as an extra centreback or a roving centre midfielder, depending on the situation. A middle-class doctor among a predominantly working-class squad, he tries to pretend they don't continually rifle his bags for Jew Gold.
8. Rúnar Þór Hauksson (26; he's not really sure, but it seems to involve computers) - LM
Rúnar Þór is good at heading the ball with his immensely thick cranium, but can lash out when confused. The numbers on his shirt don't add up to 8, but instead prove Fermat's Last Theorem. He plays on the left because he believes he is left-footed. He is not.
11. Ásgeir Ríkharðsson (20; trainee tractor engineer) - RM
A quick-footed player with excellent control on the ball and good vision, Ásgeir is generally the most criminally minded player, varying his acts from petty theft to major arson depending on his tastes.
15. Òmar Ingvason (24; turnip farmer)
16. Helgi Juliuson (28; tractor operator)
19. Agust Elfarsson (36; secretary)
24. Stigur Guðbjartsson (19; office assistant) - AM
Stigur embodies two rare qualities in a Golgothastani: footballing ability, and a work ethic. Many suspect he is adopted. He also owns the team's copy of Pro Evo, and is in charge of the famous Triangle Ball tactic.

7. Þorður Sigurgeirsson (21; nursing student) - SS
Þorður is an able young player who plays 'in the hole' behind Bjarkí. The others used to tease them for this before he stabbed a reserve defender to death with a pen and said, "You find me funny? Do I amuse you? Am I a comedian? Huh? HUH?" He takes corners and free-kicks.
9. Bjarkí Þrastarson (24; travel agent) - CF
Bjarkí is the team's best striker, and also their richest player. Being a travel agent is the most lucrative job in Golgothastan: everyone wants to leave. He has poor discipline and dives a lot, and takes the penalties.
10. Ìngmar Bragason (25; TV cameraman)
19. Atli Vigfússon (24; dividend clerk)

Style modifier: +5

If you RP first, you can... do as you wish with regard to goals, cards, broken fingernails and career-ending decapitations, godmodes, golden satsumas, etc etc. If the team lose, they will tend to blame it on being drunk; if they win, they will tend to credit it on being drunk.

But please note: Golgothastan has recently been renamed after Sigur Rós songs by executive fiat, and as such all players now have Icelandic names. These names are patronymic (or, in a few cases, matronymic) and players should be referred to by their first (or full) name, not their surname. If Hrafn Jóhansson gets a yellow card, then “Hrafn” would be booked, not “Jóhansson”.

General RP theme: The team have an unshakeable faith in the through ball ("Triangle Ball") tactic they used in the BoF, and rarely vary their playing style. They will probably spend a lot of time setting fire to things, or trying to steal things.

Kingdom of Dancougar National Football Team
World Cup 46 Qualifying: 2040-2041
World Cup 46/Cup of Harmony 38: Summer 2041

After Solomon Bilbao failed to get his third-ranked Black Wings out of the group stage of World Cup 44, the FA decided to make a coaching change. In came Shigeru Takeuchi, who departed a Shuukyuu Kishin on the way down (and has since been revitalized under former national team midfielder Jericho Leyton). The previous two coaching changes had resulted in immediate success, a quarterfinal trip and third place finish, respectively. The Takeuchi change must have made some difference because the team managed to reach the knockouts.

So, does superstition reign? Does Dancougar get a new head coach just because of the strong positive correlation with World Cup achievement? Nope. The 60-year-old Takeuchi is back, and he's bringing the same +3 style seen in the last tournament.

The players are listed by position by depth chart order. The team will generally play a 3-5-2, and first-choice starters are bolded. Players on the 23-man World Cup roster have been noted.


Artur Komarov (WC46)
Age: 26
Club: Dynamo Kalinsk
Intl Exp: Di Bradini Cup 8, World Cup 45
Notes: The arrival of Komarov at Dynamo Kalinsk sparked a rise to respectability, as the cellar-dwellers have managed to make middle-of-the-table an attainable goal. He's usually near the top of the league when it comes to goals ceded, and his team might do even better if it could score.

Jeremy Cornelia (WC46)
Age: 26
Club: Sporting Kildare
Intl Exp: Di Bradini Cup 8, Empire Charity Cup
Notes: Had a very strong Apertura after playing well at the Charity Cup in Newmanistan, ceding 38 goals in 35 starts as Kildare hit sixth in the table, giving them a chance at their first-ever international qualification.

Wilson Stepro
Age: 26
Club: Shuukyuu Kishin
Intl Exp: None
Notes: Above average goalkeeper, although benefited greatly from a strong Kishin defense.


Tomo Asanuma (WC46)
Age: 29
Club: Yuki City Athletic
Intl Exp: Oxen Cup 9, Empire Charity Cup
Notes: Although he's never gotten any action with the first team, Asanuma's played in tournaments which tend to see a lot of experimental rosters, so he's confident that he'll be ready for whatever comes his way.

Matt Bogart (WC46)
Age: 29
Club: SC Lasft (Cafundeu)
Intl Exp: Oxen Cup 9, World Cup 45
Notes: After several productive seasons in Stoneridge learning from Brad Leeds and working hard alongside Dagan Michelle Fuller, Bogart's performance in World Cup 45 earned him a more lucrative, and challenging, role in Cafundeu with SC Lasft. Bogart is strongest in the middle.

Dwight Heath (WC46)
Age: 32
Club: Loudon (Newmanistan)
Intl Exp: World Cup 45
Notes: Heath was original in the World Cup 45 reserves, but a few impressive performances convinced coach Takeuchi to include him in the final roster. Heath had always played strong for Shuukyuu Kishin and ended up in Loudon as part of the Matt Turner deal. Heath's experience will be indispensable and his hard work will make a difference.

Naoto Ogura (WC46)
Age: 28
Club: Grandborough FC
Intl Exp: Empire Charity Cup
Notes: Ogura's main strength is his speed, which helped him stand out during Grandborough's Apertura championship. He prefers to play on the right side, but sometimes his aggressive play can cause problems for the players behind him.

Mitchell Wolford (WC46)
Age: 29
Club: Sporting Kildare
Intl Exp: Oxen Cup 9, World Cup 45
Notes: Another defender who played his way into the final World Cup 45 roster by impressive Takeuchi during the tail-end of qualifiers. Wolford is another hard-worker who plays tight man defense and will not shy away from a challenge.

Doug Edrington (WC46)
Age: 30
Club: Eastport United
Intl Exp: Oxen Cup 9, World Cup 45
Notes: Edrington faltered down the stretch in the previous World Cup, but since then he's improved his awareness and this has reduced his mistake count. Nevertheless, he'll have to win back Takeuchi's trust.

Toby Garrido
Age: 25
Club: Shuukyuu Kishin
Intl Exp: None
Notes: One of several solid defenders on the Kishin line, Garrido is strong in the air.

Itsuki Ueda
Age: 28
Club: Port Royal FC
Intl Exp: Empire Charity Cup
Notes: Ueda figures to take charge of the aging Port Royal defense once Yuuta Raikatuji retires, and he's grown into the role with few problems, even garnering a selection to the B team for the Charity Cup.


Dan Florentino (Captain) (WC46)
Age: 27
Club: Porto Lacruz (Cafundeu)
Intl Exp: Oxen Cup 9, World Cup 45
Notes: Florentino is one of the few players to come out of college before his junior year, and he's made the transition well by establishing himself as a strong attacking midfielder. He's very creative with the ball, but still has problems being creative without it, but he's learning a lot from playing in Cafundeu.

Hiroshi Kaizuka (WC46)
Age: 26
Club: CF America Chuuoushi
Intl Exp: Di Bradini Cup 8, World Cup 45
Notes: Since appearing on the Wings' previous World Cup roster, Kaizuka has greatly improved his crosses, which makes him a threat on the wing where he likes to roam. He settled quickly into the Chuuoushi midfield and contributed to their high-octane offense, and now he's seen as an important team leader. With the national team, he'll be expected to contribute more on the defensive side of the ball, too.

Kent Montego (WC46)
Age: 24
Club: Dynamo Kalinsk
Intl Exp: Empire Charity Cup
Notes: Kalinsk have been improving over the years, but they picked a great time to have an off-season... they got Montego with the first overall pick in the draft, and he hasn't disappointed. After one season with Kalinsk, he was elected to the team sent to the Charity Cup, where he had four goals in Dancougar's victory.

John Schiermeier (WC46)
Age: 21
Club: Teknika Schliffen
Intl Exp: Di Bradini Cup 9
Notes: The first pick in the last draft by the expansion team in Schlieffen, Schiermeier had a strong Di Bradini Cup with three goals. Even though the team finished bottom in its first team, Schiermeier showed sparks of genius and should hopefully be a fulcrum for the franchise.

Shoji Ishino (WC46)
Age: 25
Club: Sporting Lakeport
Intl Exp: Empire Charity Cup
Notes: It's nice to see that even though Lakeport have been doing a lot of buying, they still have time to develop their own players. Much has been made of Stefan Rosberg's offensive prowess, but nobody ever mentions that hard work of the team's midfielders, especially Ishino, in creating scoring chances.

Louis Ransberger (WC46)
Age: 28
Club: Shuukyuu Kishin
Intl Exp: Empire Charity Cup
Notes: Ransberger has been a pleasant surprise for Kishin over the last few years, and he's been a part of their revival. He'll now take over the role that used to belong to teammate Dwayne Landro - a more defensive role built on solid fundamentals and good passing.

Christian Chojnacki (WC46)
Age: 29
Club: FC Takano 1983
Intl Exp: Oxen Cup 9, World Cup 45
Notes: Chojnacki is an attacking midfielder who's been trying to develop into a more complete player by working on his defense at FC Takano. While he's a strong runner and good with a pass, his attempts to be a physical player have landed him on many a referees' bad side with clumsy tackling.

Josef Rousch (WC46)
Age: 27
Club: CF America Chuuoushi
Intl Exp: Di Bradini Cup 8, World Cup 45 (quals only), Empire Charity Cup
Notes: Rousch has flourished the Chuuoushi's attacking environment alongside Hiroshi Kaizuka. Good in a challenge and with the long pass.

Cody Horrigan (WC46)
Age: 25
Club: Super Dimension Ogasawara
Intl Exp: Di Bradini Cup 8, Empire Charity Cup
Notes: As Secristani James Rogan continues to age, Ogasawara is becoming more and more Horrigan's team. The hard-working midfielder can do a little bit of everything, and he's often asked to do a LOT of everything for the perennial strugglers.

Masao Amachi (WC46)
Age: 26
Club: Port Royal FC
Intl Exp: None
Notes: Amachi is seen as a gamble by the FA, but he's showed plenty of talent during Port Royal's championship two seasons ago and has progressed steadily under the guidance of Ed Klingensmith.

Don Kline
Age: 27
Club: Sporting Kildare
Intl Exp: Di Bradini Cup 8
Notes: Kline played a big part of Kildare's strong Apertura by creating some explosive offensive opportunities. His dead ball prowess is proving to be more and more useful now that Al McNespy's nearing retirement.


Hiromasa Nagasawa (WC46)
Age: 29
Club: Raynor City (ESF)
Intl Exp: Oxen Cup 9, World Cup 45
Notes: Although he had a modest World Cup, he caught the eye of Raynor City and was transferred out following the tournament, and the new environment has served him well. Mostly a bit player with the club, he's nevertheless learned a lot from playing in a top league and will bring that experience with him in his second cup.

Stefan Rosberg (WC46)
Age: 26
Club: Sporting Lakeport
Intl Exp: Di Bradini Cup 8, World Cup 45
Notes: Rosberg attracted plenty of attention after scoring eight goals in his World Cup debut, but Lakeport refused to sell him to interested clubs in Elves Security Forces and Cafundeu, hoping to milk his contract for all it was worth and make a run for international play with Jeremy McAllister, Sr., who has since retired. Rosberg, now armed with a transfer clause, will want to impress in the tournament in order to land a big payday.

Lillian DaCosta (WC46)
Age: 29
Club: Eastport United
Intl Exp: Empire Charity Cup
Notes: After spending years on the bench at Eastport, the team finally let her loose and the team's offense hasn't skipped a beat. DaCosta takes over for Karen Stadler, who at 34 was not selected despite a strong year with Kishin, as the team's sole female player. DaCosta's sneaky off-the-ball movement is hear main strength.

Kou Hirano (WC46)
Age: 28
Club: Yuki City Athletic
Intl Exp: Empire Charity Cup
Notes: Hirano was a solid player for Yuki City Athletic, who tend to overlook him as they're more concerned with high returns on the Tony Dempster transfer they made a few years back. Nevertheless, he remains indispensable up front.

Makoto Katayanagi (WC46)
Age: 29
Club: Port Royal FC
Intl Exp: Oxen Cup 9, World Cup 45 (quals only), Empire Charity Cup
Notes: Seven goals in seven matches - you can't ask for much more production from a forward. Katayanagi's breakout performance at the Charity Cup earned him a transfer from FC Takano to Port Royal, where he teamed with Neil Lowrey to produce a fearsome forward line.

Hajime Kuniyoshi
Age: 22
Club: Stoneridge United
Intl Exp: Di Bradini Cup 9
Notes: Stoneridge hopes Kuniyoshi will be something they've needed for years - a real offensive threat. He had 13 goals in his Apertura debut and showed some of that promise, but uncharacteristically poor defense saw Stoneridge plunge in the standings anyway.

AND NOW... the permissions. Basically... yeah, if you RP before me, pick scorers, pick cards, whatever. Just try to limit the number of cards and injuries to four events, and don't kill anybody. Godmodding is fine and I'll do my best to play along. If I don't pick my starting lineup and subs before a match, you're free to choose whatever lineup works best for you.

After Somewhereistonia's young side won Baptism of Fire 33, manager Toomas Ergma had wisely decided to use a very similar squad for the world cup qualifiers. Some reserve places are unconfirmed and pre-qualifying teams will vary greatly from this as the manager looks to work out who will fill these final places.

Nation: Somewhereistonia
Team Nickname: Eagles
Style Modifier: +3
Home stadium:
Kit: Keeper kit 2nd keeper kit Kit Kit Kit

Manager: Toomas Ergma (led Qasarian Sparta to the league title last season, narrowly beating fierce rivals Dinamo Karrakiv).
Assistant Manager: Priit Vilba (Previous assistant to Dinamo Karrakiv manager, brought in to avoid splits between Dinamo and Sparta players)
Head Physio: Gustav Tolving (Owner of a sports physio centre outside Qasarian, he has shown a brilliant ability to bring players back from injury sooner than expected, as well as managing to avoid most injuries altogether).

Team roster. Positions shown within [square brackets]

First 11
1.Svante Klug, 23 [GK]. Klug has been a member of the Dinamo Karrkiv squad from age 16 and has already established himself as one of the best keepers in the Meistriliiga (the first division).
2.Justinas Volrat, 25 [LB]. Reliable and agile Skonto player who is hoping for a long and fruitful career. He can also play on the wing or on the right is necessary.
3.Kazys Kadleks, 26 [LCB]. Strong centre-back who is strong in the air. Kadleks is expected to make a solid back line with Lurich.
4.Andrus Lurich [vc], 30 [RCB]. The Qasarian Sparta centre-back and captain has performed exceptionally well in the previous season, ensuring that their team conceded on 29 goals; 17 of which were when he was out injured for 6 games.
5.Romualdas Sokk, 21 [RB]. Part of the winning Qasarian Sparta squad, having already made himself the first choice RB at 21, he will expect a long career for the Eagles.
6.Vladimir Paposki, 27 [DMF]. The solid Dinamo Karrakiv player has repeatedly helped to make sure they are title contenders by bolstering the defence. A strong tackler, he has a number of cards to his name; however he almost always wins the ball.
7.Vincas Taska, 18 [RMF]. The young star of the Dinamo team, voted MIP in the league last season after getting 10 goals and 18 assists during the season. Quick of the mark, he can trouble even the most experience LB.*
8.Czesław Keres [C], 28 [AMF]. The Dinamo captain has had mixed success at home during has career, but has worked brilliantly with Taska and has helped make Dinamo favourites for next seasons title.
9.Kukas Skormilonski, 32 [CF]. The Dinamo Karrakiv striker holds the record for most goals in a season (38), and most career goals (211) in the Meistriliiga.
11.Mart Kusnets, 17 [SS]. The talented striker has shown himself to be something of an enigma in the Empire charity cup and Baptism of Fire 33. Qasarian Sparta have thus far managed to keep the striker in the wave of bids from other local clubs.
13.Vladimir Nolakk, 21 [LMF]. The hardworking Skonto midfielder has become the under-21 captain and has already been marked as the future national captain and champion. He can play in most areas of midfield.


10.Petras Zoltoks, 20 [CF]. The young Kalev Talla striker will most likely be used as a substitute for the aging Skormilonski. He has now gained a loan move to Quintessence of Dust.
12.Nikolai Baskovic, 32 [GK]. A long term, reliable keeper for Qasarian Sparta. His experience will be of great benefit to help Klug train. Whilst he knows he will probably never win a national cap, he is proud to be selected.
14.Vytautas Altosaar, 18 [CF]. The FK Kabano striker is part of what looks to be an impressive future for the national side.
15.Gintaras Ranilas, 21 [CB]. The Qasarian City has impressed recently and will make a strong reserve player for the team.
16.Kasper Grinius, 20 [CB]. First choice centre-back for the charity cup team, he has shown strength and determination, even when let down by his other defenders. He currently plays for Qasarian City but seems keen to move. He will join Zoltoks on a loan move to Quintessence of Dust.
17.Jurgis Ģipslis, 23 [FB]. The only Vetra Karrakiv player in the squad, he is hoping to bring his club success next season. Something most pundits regard as unlikely at best.
18.Povilas Drozdova, 24 [Wing]. A fast-paced player, he is seen as a crucial part of the winning Qasarian Sparta team. He would be unfortunate to not get many caps in the Baptism of Fire tournament.
19.Vytautas Törk, 19 [MF]. The player is a surprise choice, but his good work as a substitute in the Charity cup have almost certainly won him the place in the squad. He currently plays for Qasarian Sparta and hopes to have a long term future there.
20.Antanas Zuokas, 20 [Wing]. The Atlantas winger has shown great skill and determination to join the squad and looks to have a good career ahead of him.
21.Jaan Schmidt, 25 [SMF]. The Metalurgs winger has repeatedly shown his ability to break through defenses, with excellent dribbling skills and the ability to provide the killer passes to the forward men.
22.Kazys Grodzinski, 31 [DMF]. A solid player for Metalurgs, this is likely his last chance to make it as an international player.
23. Klass Oim, 20 [GK]. The Qasarian Sparta second choice keeper retains his place in the squad and looks to be primed for a career as the national reserve keeper.

Secristan is not like most countries that have such a unprofitable manner of choosing a national team based on merit. Instead, the Secristan Department of Sports (SDOS) holds an auction and the players must bid their way onto the team. To ensure players of decent ability, in order for bids to be valid, they must be between the ages of 18 and 38 and have at least one year of professional soccer playing experience. In the World Cup, though, since many of our players have gone on to play internationally, the trend has been for our rosters to be similar because the best players have become the richest players. Make no mistake, everyone still must bid their way into their spots.

Players that play internationally have been noted. Secristani players are always seeking international offers, because they can then get compensated. In order to play for teams in Secristan they must PAY to be on the team. Due to this, transfer fees never apply, and you can sign the player straight up.

Starting Lineup:
GK: Brian Carver (Newmanistan), #20, 26- Has started on two Di Bradini Cup teams, but this is first time starting with the senior team.
LB: Shawn Young, #3, 23- Complete newcomer, but he was the surprising winning bidder. Records show he had a decent collegiate career.
LCB: Shawn Wooliver (Dancougar), #6, 27- Gritty player, aggressive but not crazy about it. Started four years ago as well.
RCB: Trevor Orton (Cafundeu), #5, 27- Played on two Di Bradini teams, but had never won an auction to play for the senior team until now. Those Cafundeu taxes will do that.
RB: Eric Fraser (Newmanistan), #2, 24- TEAM CAPTAIN. Also was the captain of the Di Bradini 7 winners. Extremely aggressive tackler. Married to Stacie Kerrigan of Cassadaigua.
LM: Matthew Marino, #14 , 26- Speedy midfielder has been a reserve since a strong showing in the 7th Di Bradini Cup team. He’s in a good spot to prove himself more here, he wants an international offer!
CAM: Scott Tollisen, #13, 23- Another player from that Di Bradini championship squad, who starts with the senior team for the first time.
CDM: Chris Coventry (Candelaria And Marquez), #19, 24- Excellent two way player. Plays with a lot of heart.
RM: Todd Carney (Cafundeu), #12, 31- Speedster looked good four years ago and returns.
LS: Michael Cardona (Newmanistan), #9, 23- With neither Rogan or Walker starting anymore, look for Cardona to emerge as our top threat.
RS: Kevin Tucker (Cafundeu), #16, 24- First time starter, but has played quite well recently.

GK: Michael Rossiter (Cafundeu)- #1, 36- Starter since Baptism of Fire 30. His age has slowed his reflexes, and for the sake of the country, he did not attempt to outbid Carver.
CB: Chris Carmin, #7, 37- He was still eligible to bid, and did. Most arrogant player on team, and that says a lot.
CB: Jeff Fisher, #4, 28- Very conservative player. He started four years ago.
MID: Brian Marcott, #15, 32- Another conservative player. Started eight years ago, and was a sub last time.
MID: Curtis Coleman (Dancougar), #17, 35- Playmaker. Should see frequent playing time.
ST: Kevin Walker (Dancougar), #10, 36- Finisher. Still has that shooters touch. Starter since Baptism of Fire 30 until now.
ST: James Rogan (Dancougar), #8, 36- His game has always been built on speed, and is the all-time leading goal scorer in Secristani history.

GK: Lucas Newmark, #21, 24- Was a reserve in Di Bradini 7 and 8 and had never been seen on a national team again, until now.
CB: Isaiah Petrie, #5, 36- Baptism of Fire starter not seen since World Cup 44 wanted to have one more shot at playing.
CB: Keith Cassell, #26, 26- Sub four years ago.
MID: Justin Simon, #27, 23- Complete newcomer.
MID: Tyler Benware, #25, 25- Appeared in Di Bradini 7 and 8.
ST: Kevin Polinski, #22, 17- Started in Di Bradini 9.

Head Coach: Ryan Fullerton (Cafundeu)
Assistant: Shawn Conboy

Other Important Infomation:

Style Modifier: +5 (The SDOS demands goals. Goals=ratings, regardless of the team that scores them).

Kit Picture: Sorry, we have no kit picture. We wear dark green and gold at home, White and dark green on the road, and our alternate jersey is black and gold. Keepers wear an all gold kit.
The Secristan Department of Sports refuses to actually pay a major kit-maker something.

Formation: 4-4-2

About our fans: Secristan fans do not chant. Instead, they shake a jar of coins repeatedly. The jars are amplified to maximize the sound of the coins inside.

About YOUR fans: Supporters traveling to Secristan? They are very much welcome however please bear in mind that tickets are not sold on a first come, first serve basis. Instead, they are sold via an auction five days prior to the events. Auctions are also held for things such as preferred parking spaces around the arena. Your visiting fans will have to go through this same process.

Home Stadium: The Megabyte Industries Stadium in East Penthoria was the highest bidder for the rights to our home games. It’s a pretty nice, 63,000- seat facility on shores of the Penthoria River in southwest Secristan. Be glad they won, because it could have been the Loophole Life Insurance Stadium again.

Manager: Alfredo Valente

Starting Eleven:

GK: Teresa Manzinilla – F / 26 / 18 Caps/0 Goals (Dynamo Refinery)
DC: Stephen Barra – M / 29 / 36 Caps / 0 Goals (Evangeline Gales)
DC: Shannon Benalli – F / 28 / 36 Caps / 0 Goals (Atalanta Red Tape)
DL: Olga Enterprise – F / 23 /38 Caps / 0 Goals (Resurgens Guerillas)
DR: Tadeu Terra – M / 28 / 36 Caps / 2 Goal (Porto La Cruz / Cafundeu)
MC: Calvin Freeman – M / 26 / 36 Caps / 2 Goal (Serrano / Cafundeu)
MR: Ryan McIntosh – M / 29 / 32 Caps / 5 Goals (S.F.A. Texans)

S: Rebecca (Revy) Viades – F / 24/ 35 Caps / 15 Goals (Free Agent)
S: Martin Lancaster – M / 26 / 89 Caps / 56 Goals (S.F.A. Texans)

There's a debate as to whether Lancaster could be the best overlooked forward of his generation. All he's done is anchor his nation's team from the front, score more goals than most players have caps, and doing it all without complaining even when an international forward with almost 60 international goals in less than 100 games is relegated to playing in front of 11,000 a week in Petrol Harbor.


GK: Al Weaver – M / 23 / 0 Caps / 0 Goals (Atalanta Red Tape)
GK: Ronald Wellborn – M / 28 / 4 Caps / 0 Goals (S.F.A. Texans)
DC: Ben Spivey – M / 28 / 22 Caps / 0 Goals (Nowhere S.C.)
DC: Lila Lakewood – F / 28 / 4 Caps / 0 Goals (Huracan Lucky Sevens)

Standard formation:

My opponent, if they RP first, may do pretty much whatever he or she likes as long as it's all in the spirit of good fun. Just don't kill my players or coaching staff (and in case of a major injury, I recommend you check with me ahead of time).

The Imperial Football Association of the Celestial Regency of Daehanjeiguk presents to you to roster for the Imperial Han Football Team for WC46.

Playing Style: +1.23
Principal Formation: 3-4-1-2 (D-M-CM-F)


Kim Jongguk (金鍾國|김종국) - #1
Club: Hangyeong FC

Well, after Kim Yongdae died, you'd never expect anyone else to fill his shoes, and by golly, Kim Jongguk isn't even close. For one, Kim Jongguk can't win a PK contest even if it was worth his life. Kim Yongdae won championships with PK contests. And while Kim Jongguk has had the benefit of having played in a World Cup quarterfinal, he's still got some ways to go before he's the best goalkeeper ever. The problem being... he's the best goalkeeper that we've got right now.

On Bench
Kim Jiwun (金知雲|김지운) - #12
Club: Seojang FC

Bong Junho (奉俊昊|봉준호) - #23
Club: Sanghae FC


Yi Beomsuk (李範奭|이범석) - #2
Club: Atlético Jutense (Cafundéu)

Well... to be honest, I haven't heard much about what Yi Beomsuk is doing or even where he is. He's still with Atlético Jutense and he still does an admirable job with his club. But nothing out of this world. Seems quite odd for a person who's supposed to be one of the best defenders on the Imperial Squad, but we'll get what Ioshido asks of him. Hopefully, it's a lot.

Kim Yongji (金永智|김용지) - #3 (C)
Club: Ranco Toco (Cafundéu)

As one of those principal players for one of the most successful clubs in the Cafundeu First Division, Kim Yongji is basically a stalwart wall. Needless to say, he can get leaky sometimes, but on a very good day, that goalkeeper won't have much work to do, whether it's Kim taking charge or Kim taking responsibility himself. Doubtless, he'll serve a similar role in this World Cup.

Kim Jinsaek (金進賾|김진색) - #4
Club: Shimyang FC

A returning young guy, started last time and did a rather good job at it too. Kim Jinsaek's had a rather good season too, so you'd expect some kid like him to be the next Kim Yongji at the least. He's got talent, and he's got stamina. The one thing he really lacks is maturity. Any more immature and he'll end up just like Kim Jingyu.

On Bench
Ha Seokju (河錫舟|하석주) - #13
Club: Hangyeong FC

Hui Yongjun (回龍準|회용준) - #14
Club: Shingang FC

Kim Jingyu (金珍圭|김진규) - #15
Club: Hanseong Gukjei

Kim Taeyeong (金太榮|김태영) - #20
Club: Shilla FC


Pak Yongho (朴容昊|박용호) - #5
Club: Gamsuk FC

Pak Yongho is having a very very very very very good season with Gamsuk. Despite a poor performance during the TQCC, Pak has helped Gamsuk stay aloft in the Heavenly Division, and looks to be set for an appearance in the Emperor's Cup after a good hiatus. Not to mention he scores goals like a striker, blocks like a defender, and runs like a midfielder. And for the first time, he's got the stamina to run 90 minutes. You'll be seeing him a lot.

Baek Jihun (白智勳|백지훈) - #6
Club: Cheonjin FC

Baek Jihun really has it good. He gets to play with Vanorians, Cafundelense, Jeruselemites, Qazians, and Peisandrians without leaving home. And yet he can only afford to get stuck into 10th place with all of that talent.

Yi Yeongpyo (李榮杓|이영표) - #7
Club: Clube Imperial (Cafundéu)

Yi Yeongpyo hasn't had as good a season as he'd like, but he's still one of the best places that we can call out. And he's getting older. But with age comes wisdom supposedly, and it's given Yi Yeongpyo more insight supposedly to have the experience on the field. Hopefully, all of that insight will translate into goals.

An Pilrip (安必立|안필립) - #8
Club: Porto Lacruz (Cafundéu)

Why he's still in the line-up still surprises people. He's not really a club player, and yet he surprisingly plays very well internationally. I suppose there are players like that, but Ioshido Toki is putting a lot of trust upon him, to trust that he will consistently play very well for the country as opposed to his club.

Go Jeongun (高正云|고정운) - #9
Club: Gwangdong FC

Go Jeongun finds his way back onto the starting line-up, and we're really happy to see him back here. While Yi Yeongpyo will take up the coveted central position that Song Jongguk and Kim Byeongji once held, Go Jeongun will return to the flanks, where he will pose his perennial threat by crossing in some sublime passes and hopefully one of the strikers will actually catch them. You know he can do it.

On Bench
Gang Gamchan (姜邯贊|강감찬) - #17
Club: Sanghae FC

Yi Yangmin (李陽民|이양민) - #18
Club: Seoan Gukjei

Mun Seongmyeong (文鮮明|문선명) - #19
Club: Shilla FC

Yu Sangcheol (柳相鐵|유상철) - #20
Club: Gamsuk FC


Jeong Jihun (鄭智薰|정지훈) - #10
Club: Cafundó do Juta (Cafundéu)

After leading the striking tour for the Han, and with the departure of a lot of WC36 veterans, Jeong Jihun is undoubtedly the top of the mark for the Han. He had a relatively good season with Cafundó do Juta, earning himself a distinction as the fifth best attacking player in the CFD (not to suggest that he actively gets into fights often, which is absolutely false...). Anyway, he's been a part of the team since WC38, and it's nice to see that there's still someone we oldies can recognize, even if we're getting a little senile.

Kim Mihyeon (金美賢|김미현) - #11
Club: Caires City (C&M)

Kim is having a fantastic time as one of the leading strikers of the Imperial Squad, and settled next to Jeong Jihun, she's right at home. She's still rather young and lacks the experience that fans cherished with Kim Daeeui. But the guy is an ancient, and she's got so much potential to fill his shoes. Ioshido Toki will have much to do filling her with plenty of experience.

On Bench
Shin Ganyak (申艮躍|신간약) - #21
Club: Hangyeong FC

Kim Gwangseok (金光石|김광석) - #22
Club: Hondo FC (ESF)

Ioshido Toki (吉田土岐|요시다토기)

World Cup Head Coach/Manager since World Cup 40, Ioshido Toki started as a prolific coach for the CCFM, before taking up on an "offer he couldn't refuse" following Cha Beomgeun's retirement after World Cup 39. Now for the 6th World Cup Qualification Tour (40, 42, 43, 44, 45, 46), he's really gotten a lot of experience and really should have gotten past the quarterfinals by now. Unfortunately, he's got great tactical finesse on the field, but when it comes to PKs, you're resigned to watch in horror...

(OOC: Cafundéu’s players are two years older than in WC 45)

Style: +3.5


World Cup 44 entered in Cafundéu’s football history, when the team reached the final but ended losing in an unfortunate way to Starblaydia. The loss was repeated in World Cup 45, but in a much earlier stage. Due to this, the entire staff of the Cafundelense team was substituted for this cup, and the team has only one mission: win the competition. The team has a good position in the rankings, so this is a very realistic objective. Once again, 26 players were called, although 3 of them (numbers 25 to 27 – 24 is a forbidden number) won’t be included in the team for the World Cup, playing only in the qualifiers. There are backup players in case of injuries that can be used.

(IMPORTANT: use the names in BOLD of my players when writing your RPs , please, as these are the names that they use when playing [the names in their shirts], don’t use their full name , as most have big full names and the Cafundelenses use nicknames exactly due to this situation. This and the observation below are the only 2 things that I ask about this issue)

(IMPORTANT 2: please do not write the names of my players in all capitals, this is important for me too. When writing a name of one of my players in your RP, write like you would write a name for any other player [don’t forget to use the one in bold]. For example: write “Silveira tried a long ranged shot...” instead of “SILVEIRA tried a long ranged shot...”)

See the list of the 26 players:


1- Francisco KARDEC (Team: Petardos S/A)
Height: 202cm - Weight: 90kg – Age: 33 years old
Player known for his outstanding performances in the league, Kardec impresses with excellent saves, since he was in América. It was only matter of time for him to reach the National Team, as he was playing for Cafundéu since the Sub-21 side. Now playing for one of the best teams of the world, seems to hold responsibility well, and is an excellent penalty saver. Kardec’s only flaw seems to be his physical condition, as he isn’t very strong and can get injured easily. Apart from that, is a top keeper. Is very religious, and prays for ten minutes before every game.
Rating: B - Team Relationship: B - Morale: A - Form: A
PLAYED WCs 43/44/45

12- Lazlo Vercilo SALATHIËL (Team: Ranca Toco)
Height: 188cm - Weight: 82kg – Age: 29 years old
A very cold goalkeeper, Salathiël does his job with perfection. He isn’t a goalkeeper that makes incredible saves or surprises the supporters with a pass starting a counterattack. He just makes the necessary saves in the right moments. He is respected in the Cafundelense league and idol of many children. By the way, although Salathiël is seen as a cold person, when he is close to children he changes completely, having pleasure in signing autographs for them or taking pictures. After the relegation of his former team, he found a place in current champions Ranca Toco.
Rating: B - Team Relationship: A - Morale: A - Form: B
PLAYED WCs 44/45

22- MURILO Fonseca (Team: América)
Height: 183cm – Weight: 77kg – Age: 22 years old
This slim goalkeeper isn’t one who impresses the attackers and the supporters, but his technique is outstanding. He jumps really high, and can react fast to a shot, which compensates the fact that he isn’t as tall as the most famous goalkeepers of Cafundéu. Murilo is also known for acting sometimes like a defender for his team, leaving the goal to head a ball or to clear the danger with a long shot. Outside the field, Murilo is shy, and dislikes to comment about his own performances in the field, even when he did an excellent game.
Rating: C - Team Relationship: B - Morale: A - Form: A

Right Defenders:

2- ROGÉRIO Estradas Sanz (Team: Galáxia)
Height: 166cm – Weight: 62kg – Age: 28 years old
This versatile player was seen as one of the most interesting choices of David Nefasto for this World Cup. After being part of the “B” National Team for many seasons, Rogério goes to the main team to play in the position where he started his career. But many think that he is best as a defensive midfielder than as a full-back. Rogério is an excellent passer and crosser, and his talents and vision in this area can be extremely helpful for the Cafundelense team. He also is very good in predicting the actions of his team mates and of his opponents, and usually doesn’t have to run a lot in the field to get the ball. Is also very intelligent, and even has a college degree in physical education.
Rating: B – Team Relationship: B – Morale: B – Form: B

14- LEONARDO Aragão (Team: A.F.F.)
Height: 171cm – Weight: 70kg – Age: 24 years old
The presence of Leonardo in the Cafundelense National Team squad was highly expected since he was 20. He was seen as a successor of Léo Mattos, a former star of the team, in both domestic and international levels. He is a very fast full-back, who can also play in the midfield, due to his good passing and technical ability. So, he is more suited for an offensive team than a defensive one, working better when he has freedom to move towards the attack. Unfortunately, his heading and finishing are poor, and he often faces problems in controlling himself when provoked by opponents, which is also something that happens outside the field too.
Rating: B – Team Relationship: A – Morale: C – Form: A

Left Defenders:

6- RENILDO Carvalho Peixoto (Team: Petardos S/A)
Height: 185cm - Weight: 82kg – Age: 31 years old
Friend of Cícero, his career became much more successful than of his friend. After staying in the bench of Petardos S/A for two seasons, became a starter and one of the key players of the team, showing incredible technique and passing ability. Isn’t very good in defending, and often forgets to defend, going to the attack too many times. Sometimes he even scores goals, but he is better at making assists. Is considered a nice person, who likes to talk with the press and lives without worries. Considered by many the best player of the National Team.
Rating: A - Team Relationship: A - Morale: B - Form: B
PLAYED WCs 43/44/45

16- Tarso Matheus COTUBA (Team: Marquez-Onwere [C&M])
Height: 176cm – Weight: 73kg – Age: 24 years old
There is no doubt that he is the second best left-back of the country, and deserves this position. A smart player, Cotuba is a player that loves to go to the attack, and is good in dribbling. But, as no one is perfect, his crossings are usually horrible. Outside the field, he is a person known for drinking too much in parties, and sometimes demands too much from his team mates. But his closest friends say that this only happens because he works hard to improve the team’s situation.
Rating: B – Team Relationship: C – Morale: A – Form: A
PLAYED WCs 44/45

Central Defenders:

3- JOÃO CARLOS Alvorada Siqueira (Team: Cafundó do Juta)
Height: 190cm – Weight: 97kg – Age: 27 years old
João Carlos first started his career as the substitute of another João Carlos, in SC Lasft. When the later got retired, he could finally show his talent, still at a young age. His strength and will force put him in the same level of the best defenders of the league, although he lacks technique or offensive abilities. Now he was transferred to Cafundó do Juta, where the supporters expect to see a solid defender, ready to stop the opponent attackers. Won the position of starter of the NT after Luizão’s mistakes, and now continues with this position in the team.
Rating: B – Team Relationship: C – Morale: A – Form: B
PLAYED WCs 43/44/45

4- João Muniz DATENA (Team: Ranca Toco)
Height: 185cm - Weight: 92kg – Age: 26 years old
One of the most violent players of the Cafundelense league, Datena causes fear in many opponent attackers. First, due to his size, as he is strong and can use his muscles to defeat the opponents. Second, because he never gives up. He can be dribbled, but he will return to torment the attacker, and will battle until the end to stop the play, with a tackle, a foul or even an aggression. The fans, both from Cafundéu and his team, seem his as someone who really loves his job. Curiously, he isn’t a violent person outside the field, and doesn’t get involved in confusions.
Rating: B - Team Relationship: C - Morale: A - Form: B
PLAYED WCs 44/45

13- WILLIAM Silva Jerônimo (Team: Albrecht FC [C&M])
Height: 181cm - Weight: 77kg – Age: 22 years old
After some impressive games in the youth team of Clube Imperial, the player got involved in a transfer with Albrecht FC, and since then only conquered fans and success in his new team. William is excellent in tackles. He hardly fouls his opponent, and hardly misses a tackle, being able to challenge even the best dribbler. He is also very good at heading the ball, but only in defensive situations – he isn’t a good player in attacking. Usually is played as the most defensive field player, and works well in this place. Outside the field, loves to hear country music and often travels back to Cafundéu to visit his parents’ farm. As he lives now in Candelaria And Marquez, he is more famous there, as he recently got married with a famous volleyball player of that country.
Rating: B - Team Relationship: A - Morale: B - Form: B

20- Marcelo Borges SCHMIDT (Team: Porto Lacruz)
Height: 180cm – Weight: 82kg – Age: 27 years old
Schmidt never established himself in a team, being transferred practically each season. He played in Metropolitano, Clube Comercial, Petardos S/A, Central United and now Porto Lacruz. But this doesn’t mean he doesn’t have quality: he is a physical defender, but one who can also start some counterattacks, with a good vision of the game and able to execute the most difficult passes. Unfortunately, his performances are far from solid, and he often makes minor mistakes that can turn out to become huge ones. Isn’t considered a top player by many supporters.
Rating: C – Team Relationship: A – Morale: A – Form: A

26- ÉDSON Guimarães LOBO (Team: Atlético Jutense)
Height: 178cm - Weight: 83kg – Age: 26 years old
An option for the National Team, nothing more. Édson Lobo was finally able to play without injuries in a team, although without being the star of the team’s defence (who is Yi Yeongpyo). Édson Lobo is a strong defender, excellent at heading but sometimes clumsy when controlling the ball. When he gets the ball, he immediately shoots it forward to avoid losing it. Outside the field, ever repeats the same comments to the media, and is considered a dumb player by fans and reporters.
Rating: C - Team Relationship: B - Morale: A - Form: B

Defensive Midfielders:

5- Henrique SILVEIRA (Team: A.F.F.)
Height: 178cm - Weight: 73kg – Age: 34 years old
Some experts consider Silveira “the next Anormal”. Although Silveira doesn’t have the height and weight of the legendary player, he is also a nearly complete player. His passes are good, his shooting is strong and usually well placed, is intelligent as has speed. Has some problems with dribbling and heading, and that’s why he isn’t as complete as Anormal. But he is excellent at tackling. Really excellent. Takes the ball from the opponents without difficulties, and without making fouls. During the game (and outside the field too), is very polite with the referee and with his opponents, but when things get out of control, he has difficulties to control himself. Also, respect his coach more than anyone, being a good option for captain of the team. And, after six cups, he finally will win this position, in which is probably his last World Cup too.

8- MARCUS VINÍCIUS Paiva Neto (Team: Dunboor FC)
Height: 185cm – Weight: 81kg – Age: 25 years old
A promising player since the times when he was a member of the Di Bradini Cup team. Marcus Vinícius was often considered to be a completely neutral midfielder, being able to work on the wings or the centre, in an offensive or defensive role… so he is a really versatile player. But with the passing time, he became really adapted to play in a very defensive role, being the guardian of a team’s midfield. He is good at predicting the moves of an opponent, and getting the ball without much effort or fight. Sometimes he adventures himself in the attack, but it often ends in bad experiences for him. He loves pagode and samba music, and loves to sing with friends or even team mates.
Rating: B – Team Relationship: A – Morale: B – Form: A

15- ABREU Vilela de Souza (Team: A.F.F.)
Height: 173cm – Weight: 73kg – Age: 28 years old
Abreu is a known player in Cafundelense football, but no one really recognizes him by name. So, when the name “Abreu” was announced in Cafundéu’s call-up for the National Team, people started to wonder who this player was. Then, when they discovered that the player is “the A.F.F.’s #6, that defensive midfielder”, they immediately approved the choice, as Abreu is a player with good performances, and someone who does well the job of second defensive midfielder. Although his football abilities are praised, he isn’t a famous person, and can walk on the streets without having to stop and sign autographs to many fans.
Rating: C – Team Relationship: B – Morale: B – Form: B

Neutral Midfielders:

19- Charles JULES (Team: Dunboor FC)
Height: 173cm – Weight: 73kg – Age: 29 years old
A technical player, is very defensive, scoring few goals. His best talent is to tackle his opponents using ability rather than strength, and his accurate passing, which can start many counterattacks. Jules was never considered a star, and he is used to see other players from the same team that he plays receiving the media attention. Due to this, he is a modest person, a shy one, who doesn’t appear much on the television or give interviews to Globo or other channels.

17- Fugiro NAKOMBI (Team: Central United)
Height: 166cm - Weight: 63kg – Age: 26 years old
First appearing in the Oriental Football Cup for Cafundéu, it took some time for Fugiro Nakombi to get a place in the National Team, as for years he was considered “not good enough” to wear the black-red shirt. Years of solid performances and vital contributions to his team in the Cafundelense league changed his status. Good at controlling the ball, Nakombi works more in a defensive role. He hates to participate in set pieces moves and plays, and will avoid to take free kicks or to appear in the area during a corner. Outside the field, became known as being the son of a bank robber, who is now in jail. Curiously, Nakombi once revealed in an interview that he participated in some minor crimes when he was younger, mostly due to the fact that he lived in a poor neighbourhood, and had no money even to eat properly.
Rating: B - Team Relationship: C - Morale: C - Form: A

21- Pedro Antônio Ramalho "PEDRINHO" (Team: Clube Imperial)
Height: 170cm – Weight: 70kg – Age: 25 years old
This man is quick. Very quick. In fact, this is the most impressive quality of Pedrinho, if not the only one that makes him a top player. Pedrinho is a player that can do all kinds of moves in an energetic pace. Passes, dribbles, shots, ball control, all in incredible speed and without getting confused with the ball or losing it in the process. So, he can participate in counterattacks or make some great individual plays. And that’s also why he usually plays in a more offensive position, although he first started playing as a more defensive player. Pedrinho is also known for diving too much, so he can be a great “actor” in a game… curiously he expressed great interest in acting outside the field too.
Rating: C – Team Relationship: A – Morale: B – Form: A

Attacking Midfielders:

10- Marcos Durvaldi PAQUETÁ (Team: Ranca Toco)
Height: 170cm - Weight: 69kg – Age: 22 years old
Paquetá since young age surprised the supporters of Ranca Toco, being one of the most helpful players in the team’s second league title. With his amazing speed and ability to pass the ball in the narrowest places, he really showed talent of a world class player. His dribbles are beautiful too. Too bad that he isn’t good at finishing, and simply can’t head a ball. Otherwise, surely would be one of the key players of this National Team. When not playing, Paquetá is known for his love for the beach (surprisingly, he doesn’t live in a seaside city) and sports related to it.

11- Kauã Cardozo SERRANO (Team: A.F.F.)
Height: 177cm – Weight: 74kg – Age: 25 years old
Playing for the Monopolists since the U-12 National Team, Serrano is another player who grew up in Galáxia’s academy, considered the best of the country in training young players. Now in the professional team, Serrano shows a lot of talent, being considered an improved version of the retired player Dário. His dribbling is awesome, and he can score beautiful goals, being good in making assists too. But, unfortunately, he simply can’t defend well. Is still developing his skills, and was the key player of the U-21 team. Now an idol of the NT, expectations are big towards him.
Rating: A – Team Relationship: A – Morale: B – Form: A

25- TÚLIO Lemos de Souza (Team: América)
Height: 181cm - Weight: 74kg – Age: 29 years old
Very good in creating goal chances, Túlio is a player who can spot breaches in the opponent’s defence really quickly, and make the pass that will put an attacker in front of the goal with only the keeper (or without anyone) to beat. Túlio is also good at dribbling, but he only does his tricks when there is no other solution available. He is also good at taking free kicks and corners, and will surely do this if he plays as a starter or a substitute. A solid player, can be one of the main bench options of the coach. Outside the field, is known as being a person that loves cars, even participating in some races.

PLAYED WCs 44/45


7- Dênis Conte ALVES (Team: Petardos S/A)
Height: 175cm – Weight: 71kg – Age: 27 years old
Alves is one of the most efficient strikers of the country. He plays as a target man inside the area, few times leaving it to start a play from the midfield. Good at scoring, not so good at passing and making plays. Alves is cold, can resist easily to pressure, but also doesn’t communicate much with his team mates. Outside the field, is more sociable, but still a cold person. A goalscorer, can be the saviour of the Cafundelense team in this World Cup. With Cafundéu’s recent success in the World Cup, he can now be considered one of the best strikers of the world, fighting for the position of top striker in the world football. Alves also was the biggest move of this Cafundelense season, getting transferred to Petardos S/A.

9- HUBERT Munch (Team: Ranca Toco)
Height: 173cm - Weight: 70kg - Age: 30 years old
Usually ignored by the so called “football experts” when they make their list of the best players in the country, Hubert is just considered a good striker, who scores goals. They forget to remember that scoring goals is the main objective of a striker, so Hubert is excellent. He isn’t a player that makes beautiful plays or goals, but he does his job, and very well. His shots are usually well placed, and he has a good positioning and vision of the game. Unfortunately, his style seems too primitive for some coaches. He is a serious person, but a nice one.

18- Fernando Lemes Campos "NANDO" (Team: Clube Imperial)
Height: 170cm – Weight: 69kg – Age: 28 years old
Nando is the most energetic attacker of the Cafundelense league. Very fast, can make his opponents dizzy with his moves, and score goals using only his speed. He isn’t a dribbler, but his fast moves make many people think that he does great dribbles. His shots are accurate, but not strong ones, and some goalkeepers end predicting his shots. Sometimes, due to the fact that Nando does his moves in high speed, he does the wrong thing in a situation, as shooting when there was a well positioned team mate inside the area with clear goal chances. If in World Cup 43 Cafundéu didn’t think there were many good attackers, in the last World Cups the situation is the opposite.

23- André MATOSO (Team: Dunboor FC)
Height: 180cm – Weight: 75kg – Age: 25 years old
Not a player who was really expected to play for the National Team at this time. He hardly played as a starter in the last seasons, so he doesn’t have many chances to show his true potential. But one thing is for sure: he has a lot of it. His shots are deadly: strong when needed, surgical sometimes. Also, he is very smart, and can easily deceive a defender. He is also a talkative person, and loves to tell jokes about his team mates. Was involved in the huge deal between Petardos S/A and Dunboor FC for Alves.

27- RAFAEL Borges de NUNES (Team: Cafundó do Juta)
Height: 176cm – Weight: 72kg – Age: 20 years old
The most promising Cafundelense football player since Alves, Rafael Nunes first appeared in the middle of a season, playing for Metropolitano. It didn’t take long for him to impress everyone with his goal instinct, and to be named the top youngster of the league. From that, he got participations in DBC teams and a deal to Cafundó do Juta, where he now awaits for more chances to play. About his abilities, he is a natural dribbler, capable of acting really fast and making the most creative and/or necessary dribbles and moves. Also, his goal instinct is excellent, helping him to position himself always where the ball is going to. As he is still a young player and not a starter for his team, Veiga has chosen to not put him among the top 23, even with most people agreeing that he has much more quality than the selected Matoso.

Coach: Andreas GILSOWELLER VEIGA (Former Ranca Toco coach)
Height: 188cm - Weight: 83kg – Age: 48 years old
As you’ll notice, the entire staff of the Cafundelense team had been changed after World Cup 45. And, for the job of coach of the National Team, the name of Andreas Gilsoweller Veiga couldn’t be a more natural and expected choice. Member of the “new generation” of coaches (opposing to the generation of Meback, Braddock, Nefasto, Sodré and Neves, for example), Gilsoweller Veiga is less tactical than the former coaches of the NT and more emotional and instinctive. With a short but successful career, Veiga has a lot of experience in coaching a football team, winning lots of trophies, and knows how to deal with a team full of stars. On trainings, likes to do exercises that the players enjoy, and to work to improve the team chemistry and atmosphere. Before each game, talks a lot to motivate the players. Still young, surely is the top star of Cafundéu’s coaches right now.

Assistant Coach: Ignacio VÉLEZ
Height: 175cm - Weight: 78kg - Age: 42 years old
When Ganz Ijak left the Cafundelense National Team to be a member of Franz Braddock's staff in Sarzonia's NT, the CCFM went desperately after a substitute for the WC Hall of Fame member. Reinaldo Franco took the job temporarily, while the CCFM made a deal with the CMSC, which would indicate the name for the job. In the end, the name of Ignacio Vélez was the most approved one, due to the former player's experience in the Cafundelense league, where he played for many seasons in Cafundó do Juta, being one of the top attackers of the league when his team was one of the dominating forces. In the team, as he doesn't have much coaching experience, Vélez is going to give support to Veiga, although he has a different way to motivate the players, with parties and nights out. He is also aiming to help some of younger players as, after he retired, he went to work as Cafundó do Juta's youth team coach.

Administrative Manager: Reinaldo FRANCO
Height: 177cm - Weight: 75kg - Age: 36 years old
Although Reinaldo Franco was first called as a replacement of Ijak for the job of assistant coach, with time the CCFM noticed that his real talent was in the administrative part of a football team. So, when the deal with the CMSC was concluded (putting Vélez in the place of assistant coach), the CCFM decided to maintain Franco in the team, to be the administrative manager of the team, dealing with the economic and transport issues involving the National Team. A former football player, Franco mixes good knowledge of football and a lot of ability to deal with administrative problems.

Called to work in two positions at the same time, being those spy of the NT (substituting the old Pai Dinah) and main scout of the CCFM (substituting the famous, mysterious and popular The Scout), Jonas Bigodinho’s career can be short-lived, as it is believed he is involved in the illegal deals made by Carlos Alberto Urubupungá (money laundry or public money stealing, which one still to be decided by the court). But Bigodinho is seen as an excellent scout, of the same level of The Scout, who can discover even the colour of a player’s underwear or his favourite toothpaste… ah, all NTs must be warned that he is making a list of players to be signed by the CCFM during this cup…

Physical Trainer: Adir VRATTEN

There is not much we can say about Vratten. Another new member of the Cafundelense NT staff (although this isn’t anything special, as all members of the NT staff are new), has the respect of the CCFM leaders. Before accepting the offer to participate in the NT now, he had refused countless other offers from the CCFM. Vratten has nearly 20 years of career, and is believed he can make any player fit, even if this player looks like a balloon than a person.

Entertainer: Sérgio MALLANDRO FILHO
Height: 171cm - Weight: 78kg – Age: 39 years old
When the CCFM replaced the whole staff of the Cafundelense NT, people believed that finally they would get rid of Serginho Mallandro. Big mistake. Serginho left, but in his place his son, Mallandro Filho, was called. He tells the same jokes his father did, and the same phrases and funny (or at least intended to be funny) comments, as the “Glu-glu” and “Bilu-bilu tetéia” ones. The majority of the population used to love him (before his jokes became repetitive), but the players of the National Team are likely to try to assault him after each of his jokes.

Doctor: DR. Lupicínio DETRACE
Height: 173cm - Weight: 82kg – Age: 60 years old
The new doctor of the Cafundelense NT is the most experienced ever to take this position. His objective is a very simple one: to try to make the players avoid getting injured and, if they get, to make them recover fast. He has the full support and money from the CCFM to do this job, so we expect he works well. If not, no one will really mind if the CCFM replaces the team doctor.

The Directors:

De facto President of the CCFM: Erwin BOSHCKE, Baron of Santa Cecília
Age: 55 years old – Time in the job: 6 months
Although Carlos Alberto Urubupungá is still named the President of the CCFM, it is Erwin Boshcke who really is in control of the football association. Formerly the director of legislation of the CCFM, Boshcke was named the President of the CCFM by the Empress herself after Urubupungá’s illegal acts were discovered. He is part of the “Nobles’ Board of the CCFM”, as now the CCFM is entirely filled with members of the nobility. But this doesn’t mean that the Baron of Santa Cecília doesn’t have knowledge of football or some influence inside the WCC. No, this is exactly the opposite. The Baron probably is even more capable of making a good job than his predecessors, and has a lot of prestige. It is widely believed and accepted that he will get permanently the position of CCFM president after Urubupungá’s trial ends.

The former vice-president of the CCFM was the chosen one to substitute Erasmo Carlos Jowenguard in the command of the CCFM. A safe choice, as Urubupungá knows well how the CCFM works and is likely to work with the same style of Jowenguard. An economist, Urubupungá will use his knowledge to bring more profit to the organization as a whole, something very appreciated by everyone. Also, has a good relationship with the teams chairman. Unfortunately, it was discovered that he was using the CCFM to earn illegal money, and he can be severely punished for this.

Although the former director of NTs was close to the Empress and viewed as a talented businessmen (with focus on marketing), he was fired too, as it is suspected he participated in Urubupungá’s evil scheme (Bustos even lost his position of Counsellor-Minister of Marketing too, and now can be even arrested!). In his place, Ivan Duarte was called, a football expert who used to work for years as a journalist and later as president of a small third division team. As with the remaining of the actual CCFM board, he is member of the Cafundelense nobility, being the Duke of Guará. He isn’t known abroad, but inside Cafundéu he is a respected person.

Kits (small version - bigger version with sponsors at the bottom):

It was a long time ago. In World Cup 39, the Landau Institute, representing the whole country of Estresse Intenso at that time, had a difficult qualifying stage. No, we can’t say this. This team has nothing to do with that Estresse Intenso team, because we aren’t Estresse Intenso. We are the Landau Institute, which is a part of it, truly, but a very special part. We alone can be considered a true society, a true nation, although not an official one.

So let’s restart. In World Cup 39, our doctors and patients of the Landau Institute that were in the Estresse Intenso team faced many difficulties. The qualification for the World Cup, as happened in WC36, was far away, and the team was even losing its home games in the Sector-Delta Sporting Field. But the final blow that completely destroyed the motivated of the Institute members was the illness of The Machine, the team’s coach. Constructed to lead the team to glory, by Pascal Caelaphyluso, a mystical person from the Dreamed Realm, The Machine, which was built with common mechanical objects, including the oven that represented his body, became more human as time passed, and ended suffering a serious illness due to this, which ended bringing him to death by the end of the qualifiers. After that, Estresse Intenso could even finish second in the Cup of Harmony, but that was the end of the team. The Machine’s death led Estresse Intenso to announce its retirement from the World Cup, giving space to the Independent Territory of Terreiro de Ogum, which had an average performance in the World Cup.

But now it is time for Landau Institute to really enter in the World Cup, no more representing a failed country, no more carrying a flag that isn’t ours! It is time for the Institute to play football representing all the doctors and patients of our island. And we have the right players and the right staff for it... including our coach, our biggest motivator and leader in this competition, the one that will give us all the hints for success. Now that we are playing as ourselves, the Landau Institute, we have to show the world the ability of our habitants, doctors and patients, united in a new team, revived from the ashes of Estresse Intenso!

(IMPORTANT: it is preferable to use the names in BOLD of my players when writing your RPs , as these are the names that they use when playing [the names in their shirts], instead of using their full name. Now to the most important: please do not write the names of my players in all capitals, this is important for me too. When writing a name of one of my players in your RP, write like you would write a name for any other player)

The List:


1- Doctor Germano MALDONADO (Team: Cardiologists)
Age: 40
Occupation: member of Cardiology department - common patients’ area
Bio: Maldonado has just become the goalkeeper of the Cardiologists team, and impressed the whole Institute with his excellent performances. As the team is composed by the top performers of the league, Maldonado won this place, even without having much experience. His long hair is his signature mark. He jumps on practically every ball to make a save, loving to impress everyone watching him.

12- Professor Tobias BROWN (Team: Neurologists)
Age: 67
Occupation: permanent member of Neurology Institute department; teacher in the Institute University; member of teaching council in the University
Bio: the most famous goalkeeper of the country, Brown is one of the leaders of the Neurologists team and of the Institute department of Neurology. So, his importance is inside and outside the football field, being one of the most respected doctors of the place. Due to his advanced age, Brown is likely to not start the games, but he is surely the most talented keeper, and the attackers can’t underrate him.

22- Doctor Heraldo ARAGÃO (Team: Orthopaedists)
Age: 38
Occupation: member of the Orthopaedic department – stable patients’ area
Bio: the Orthopaedists have a team that is rising on the Laifódi league, conquering some important results, and the arrival of doctor Aragão is one of the things that helped them to win many games. Aragão is a concentrated and efficient goalkeeper, and also a talented doctor, who likes to talk with his patients.


2- Professor Matias ROCHER (Team: Otorhinolaryngologists)
Age: 51
Occupation: head of the Otorhinolaryngology Institute department; member of the Breath High Council; head teacher of his department in the Institute University
Bio: Professor Rocher is a symbol of the Landau Institute. Was born here, raised here, studied here and now is head of his department. Studying medicine since he was just a child, Rocher surely has a huge knowledge, and is one of the most famous doctors of the Landau Institute. Also, has a good relationship with most patients and with the doctors too, being a person that most people like. As a football player, Rocher is fast and is able to make some excellent passes, long or short.

6- GABRIEL Leite Cruz (Team: Physical Trainers)
Age: 26
Occupation: member of the Sporting Activities department
Bio: Gabriel is a young player of the Landau Institute team, and due to that is a player with a very good physical condition. Usually all players of the team are in perfect health conditions, but Gabriel is the one least likely to suffer an injury. His crossings are his best ability, and he is a quiet person.

14- Doctor Mendelúcio SOBRINHO (Team: Psychiatrists)
Age: 46
Occupation: member of the Psychiatry department – I. T. Patients’ area
Bio: Doctor Sobrinho works in the dangerous area of the Institute, where the patients can’t be controlled by the medicines given by the doctors. Due to that, he is a cautious person and one who can deal with most difficulties in his work – something that happens when he is playing football too.

16- Professor Jair VALENÇA (Team: Neurologists)
Age: 74
Occupation: permanent member of the Neurology Institute department; member of the Brain High Council; teacher in the Institute University
Bio: an experienced doctor and football player, Jair Valença is one of the most important neurologists of the Institute, probably just behind the department chief Professor Arthur Costa, who doesn’t like football. Valença usually don’t work directly with the patients, although can enter in some really difficult cases, where a top neurologist is needed. Doesn’t like to work in the University, and that’s why he wasn’t able to have a good academic career, being just a normal teacher there.


3- Doctor Renato RIBEIRO (Team: Neurologists)
Age: 53
Occupation: permanent member of the Neurology Institute department
Bio: the Neurologists team is mostly composed by experienced doctors, so its average age is one of the highest of the league. But it also has many top players, and Ribeiro is another of them. Fanatic for football, he isn’t much dedicated to his work, although years of service granted him a place among the leaders of the department. But you can’t expect him to work until late hours in the night.

4- VALDIR Marrocos Pitoco (Team: Security)
Age: 30
Occupation: member of Landau Institute’s security – island area
Bio: a member of the security team in the Institute’s National Team? Yes. Although the team isn’t a very good one, it often has good defenders. We don’t need to say that Valdir is a highly physical player, who uses his strength to defeat his opponent, sometimes with fouls. But, outside the field, he is a nice person, and loves watching soap operas.

13- Doctor Augusto MENDES DÍAZ (Team: Toxicologists)
Age: 33
Occupation: member of the Toxicology department – common patients’ area
Bio: Doctor Mendes Díaz is a young doctor, who still didn’t have any big achievements inside the Institute as a doctor – he is only a working doctor in his department, nothing special. But, as a football player, he has already shown his ability as defender, and he also claims that he can discover if a player is using drugs or not by just smelling his watch or socks.

21- Doctor Kléber LA CODETI (Team: Gynaecologists)
Age: 56
Occupation: permanent member of the Gynaecology Institute department; member of Sexual MEDICAL Studies High Council
Bio: Doctor La Codeti is surely the best player of the Gynaecologists team, an average one which has a good teamwork and tactical awareness that makes them get some good results. La Codeti is a talkative person, and loves to invent stories. He is also a member of the Sexual Council, which had to have the work medical written in all capitals in its name due to many people thinking that the council was intended for other activities.

Defensive Midfielders:

5- Professor Tarcísio DUPONT (Team: General Practitioners)
Age: 45
Occupation: member of the General Practice department – I. T. Patients area; teacher of the Institute University
Bio: Professor Dupont is a very determined person, and one who never gives up when he has an objective. Working with unstable patients, he had already many problems about insisting in giving medicines to patients that were having bad reactions to them, with some fatalities involved. He also is a very demanding player, as much as he is with his students, with his classes being one of the most difficult of the university. Dupont wanted to be the captain of the team, but probably the fact that he is a general practitioner didn’t help him in this.

8- Doctor Paula Raquel Fernandes SPLITSSCHER (Team: Psychiatrists)
Age: 24
Occupation: member of the Psychiatric department – stable patients’ area
Bio: one of the few women in the Landau Institute Natioal Team, Doctor Splitsscher is also the youngest player of the team, and also a very talented football player, with an excellent vision and positioning, being able to start good counterattacks. Her career in the psychiatry area is still beginning, so she doesn’t have any titles or awards.

15- Professor Haroldo BARBEIRO (Team: Neurologists)
Age: 73
Occupation: member of the Neurology department – I. T. Patients area; teacher of the Institute University; member of teaching council in the University
Bio: Professor Barbeiro is loved by his students. A top teacher, is great in doing classes in the Institute’s University. Curiously, as a doctor, he is nothing special, even with years of experience, being unable to get anything more than just a basic position in the intensive treatment area. Barbeiro’s advanced age has highly affected his football ability, so he won’t move much on the field.

20- Caio MOTTA Vagrandini (Team: Stable Patients)
Age: 38
Situation: under observation by psychologists – former mental illness
Bio: Motta is one of the two patients that got to the Landau Institute National Team. Currently Motta is considered cured by the doctors responsible for him, and under observation in the stable patients’ area. But he used to have severe hallucinations, which made him completely unable to communicate or to act with his free will until these hallucinations ended, which made him pass years of his life in the intensive treatment area. Well, glad that he is cured now... is he?

Offensive Midfielders:

7- Doctor Giuliana Carvalho LEÓN (Team: Psychiatrists)
Age: 30
Occupation: permanent member of the Psychiatric Institute department
Bio: another female psychiatrist in the National Team, she is considered the main responsible for leading her team in the Laifódi competition, due to her incredible dribbling ability. She is very good at humiliating other players with her dribbles and inventive shots, and people say she acts the same way when counselling patients. She is very stubborn and short-tempered, and can engage in long discussions. She is also fast when controlling the ball, but dislikes long-ranged shots.

11- Doctor Sidney Harmangi Hill "DR. ALIEN" (Team: Otorhinolaryngologists)
Age: 44
Occupation: member of the Otorhinolaryngology department – stable patients’ area
Bio: Doctor Hill isn’t a famous person inside the Landau Institute. In fact, even in the Laifódi (the Institute league) scene he wasn’t a well-known name. But last season he showed everyone that he is simply the best set pieces taker of the entire place. Also, his heading abilities are extremely useful to help the team to score goals and defend. He is slowly becoming famous inside the Institute, but still has to improve his treatment methods. After an experience with an extraterrestrial creature infected him with an unknown toxin, Hill suffered a complete mutation, developing supernatural strength and stamina, becoming much taller and heavier, with purple skin and a deformed face, turning himself into a monster. Now he is called Dr. Alien.

17- Professor Nathan WAMBROCKING (Team: Cardiologists)
Age: 80
Occupation: head of the Cardiology Institute department; head of the Heart High Council; member of Landau Institute’s presidency chamber; head teaching of his department in the Institute University; member of the teaching council in the University
Bio: Professor Wambrocking is, without doubt, the highest-ranked of the doctors in this National Team, being even part of the group of doctors that lead the Institute. He is also a good football player, known for distributing well the ball and making some interesting moves when attacking. Due to his age, will probably get only ten or twenty minutes of playing time in a game he enters. As a doctor, Wambrocking usually doesn’t have personal contact with patients, leading a group of doctors under his command, who do all the dirty work for him.

19- JOHANN Brass (Team: I. T. Patients)
Age: 32
Situation: under intensive treatment by cardiologists, psychiatrists, psychologists, endocrinologists and hypnotherapists; illness not yet identified
Bio: a ferocious player – literally. Johann is a member of the intensive treatment area, due to having an uncontrollable rage, which starts without warning. His rage attacks are impressive to watch, as he tends to completely destroy a beef or eat a latrine in seconds. A huge group of doctors is actually trying to control him, but only hypnosis has some effects – which lasts for little time. When playing football, Johann is known for his long individual runs and potent shots, and is sometimes called Johann Foguete.


9- Doctor Eduardo da Cunha GADESCU (Team: Pulmonologists)
Age: 47
Occupation: member of the Pulmonologist department; member of the Research department; member of the General Practice department – all in the common patients’ area
Bio: surprisingly the only doctor of this team who has more than one specialty – something that is common in the Institute – Doctor Gadescu plays for the Pulmonologists, as this is the area where he acts the most, and where he has shown big talent, being considered one of the possible future leaders of this area inside the Landau Institute. A calm person, doesn’t like to take risks.

10- Professor Fabrício ABRAHIM Mendoza (Team: Oncologists) – team captain
Age: 64
Occupation: head of the Oncology Institute department; head teacher of his department in the Institute University
Bio: the top scorer of the Laifódi league and one of Landau Institute’s legends in the attack. Professor Abrahim is a goalscorer by nature, he seems to have born with goal instinct. He can be sleeping on the grass during the game that the ball will surely hit him and enter the goal. Because of his fame and his experience in football, the coach’s choice of putting him as the captain was accepted by everyone. As a doctor, he is very humble, and likes to personally check the situation of his many patients. Is surely the key player of this team, although some people claim it is Doctor León.

18- Professor Raimundo Nonato PASCOAL (Team: Psychiatrists)
Age: 58
Occupation: permanent member of the Psychiatry Institute department; member of the Brain High Council; teacher of the Institute University
Bio: an experience psychiatrist, Professor Pascoal seems to have updated his skills to a mythical level. Many people say that the legend that Pascoal can read the minds of other people and fully predict what someone will do is true, although the doctor denies this. But, if this is not true, how can he shoot exactly where the goalkeeper won’t go?

23- Doctor Aline Merengue DE FRUTI (Team: Dentists)
Age: 32
Occupation: member of the Dentistry department of the Institute
Bio: she is an attacker who provokes the same feeling in both her patients and the opponents’ defenders and goalkeepers: fear. Her patients scream: “please have mercy of my mouth!” while her opponents scream: “please have mercy of our goal!” But she is deadly (not in the literal sense, she didn’t kill any patients), and can score goals with ability.

The Staff:

Head Coach: The Memory Ball
Age: unknown
Occupation: ball made of something that looks like glass, or maybe it is some rock... I don’t know, it is orange... wait, it changed the colour to blue... I give up
Bio: this is what (or who) gave the Landau Institute the motivation to return to world football. This ball, according to Gaspar Aecalyopheno, stores all the memories of the creator of The Machine, Pascal Caelaphyluso, who used his abilities from the dreamed realm to give life to the former coach of the Estresse Intenso team. Pascal was dead, but now this ball is considered to be him, as it has his memories and does what he would do in each situation. Most people, then, seem to agree that the ball is Pascal himself, and that it is his soul which is stored. The memory ball floats on the air and can move with good speed. Gaspar says that the ball talks, but as no one has never heard anything from the ball, it must be through telepathy. The Memory Ball has a huge knowledge about football tactics, and seems to be preparing well the Landau Institute team for the competitions.

Assistant Head Coach: Gaspar Aecalyopheno
Age: 50
Occupation: member of Landau Institute’s presidency chamber; member of Mythical Debate High Council
Bio: Aecalyopheno is the apprentice of Pascal Caelaphyluso, who came to the Landau Institute from the Dreamed Realm when his master was still alive. He seems to have learned a lot from his master, but not everything, and is clearly considered as a person with inferior knowledge and talent than the much missed Pascal. With the arrival of the Memory Ball, Gaspar saw the return of his old master, and his extremely happy and motivated. As he is the only one who can communicate with the ball, he has now the position of assistant head coach, and he also is the one who will give the ball’s orders to the team, and also the one who will discuss with the referee if needed.

Common Coach: Doctor Aristides Igaben
Age: 73
Occupation: member of the Surgery department of the Institute
Bio: Doctor Igaben is the coach of the team, the one who will actually give the team the training and make them fit for the games. He will have no participation during the games, being only responsible for pre and post-game events. As a doctor, Igaben is a good surgeon, although not one with the highest reputation inside the Landau Institute.

(if someone wants to make Landau Institute’s kits, please tell me!)

Background Detail: differently from Cafundéu, Estresse Intenso is an absurd place. In every corner, you'll find riots, prophets saying that the world will end soon, crazy people walking on the streets, cars being exploded, huge holes on the ground that probably lead to Hell, big helicopters sending the most different types of messages to the people. No police. No proper government to contain the people. A true chaos. The only place where the people can find protection is inside the office buildings, huge skyscrapers controlled by Cafundelense companies estabilished in Estresse Intenso. These office buildings have security guards that defend the place and negotiate with the gangs that "work" on the streets. These normal people that decide to live in the office buildings have to work to "pay" for their stay, food and security. In fact, there is no money in Estresse Intenso. This situation comes close to slavery. Because of that, the office buildings have some influence in the country.

The Landau Institute is a part of Estresse Intenso, but there things are different. It is located in the Lowrni island, between the country and Bazalonia, and seems to be completely independent from the country. The Institute is a place where the people that succumbed to the stress (or became crazy in the middle of the chaos) go to get a treatment. The doctors there are excellent, and the patients well-treated, receiving attention and the help necessary. A much better and calm place to live, the Landau Institute is a paradise in the middle of Hell. The doctors control the place, but they don't live in better conditions than the patients (a lie! They do, although it is not such a big difference).

Home Stadiums: We play each home qualifying game in a different stadium and the venues are chosen based on the “prestige” of the opponent. We will announce the stadiums in our “Group Draw” RP.


Name: Nelson Yaschter (Head Coach)
Age: 59
Club Team: Galaxia (Cafundeu)
Bio: Took over the head coaching position midway through qualifying for World Cup 45, and led the Rockets on one of their traditional second half charges, going 5-1-1 down the stretch. If only that was good enough. He did, however, lead the nation to the Cup of Harmony 37 title.

Name: Mark McCafferty (Assistant Coach)
Age: 48
Club Team: Brighton Bulls
Bio: McCafferty has all the makings of being a long-time assistant of Yaschter, because Michael also tends to prefer younger players. With Brighton, he took a “B” League team, and made them to a mid-pack NPL team with younger players. Starting senior team defender in World Cup 40-42.

Name: Jeremy McAllister, Sr. (Assistant Coach)
Age: 41
Club Team: Sporting Lakeport (Dancougar)
Bio: The great J-Mac joins Nelson Yaschter’s staff for the Di Bradini Cup. McAllister led the team to the 4th Di Bradini Cup title, and the final appearance in the 5th. He has retired now from international football, and begins the next phase of his career. In gaining 180 international caps, Jeremy scored 134 goals.

(All Caps/Goals are accurate prior to the beginning of the Charity Cup)


Name: Jason Hargrove (Caps: 0 Clean Sheets: 0)
Position: GK
Age: 29
Number: 1
Club Team: Olympia Gladiators
Bio: So what was all that talk again that the starting keeper job was coming down to Andrew McClure and Jennifer Bennett? With all three goalkeepers from four years ago now retired, this spot was considered up for grabs. Well, Hargrove went out and grabbed it. After a monsterous year with the Gladiators, he propelled himself up the depth chart. A tough year for McClure didn’t help either, and even though Bennett played well, Hargrove is hot right now. So why not roll with him? Shades of the way Chris Kusler picked the job up and ran with it during World Cup 43 qualifying. He was a backup in the 7th Di Bradini Cup.

Name: Shawn Loughran (Caps: 31 Goals: 3)
Pos: LB
Age: 22
Jersey #: 4
Club Team: Gamsuk FC (Daehanjeiguk)
Bio: Loughran is a future superstar who made the jump from sub to starter under Yaschter very impressively, and became the first Newmanistanian to sign with a club in Daehanjeiguk, which is quite an honor. He can be physical, but is very smart about it and has remarkable defensive awareness. Loughran has tremendous speed and agility, and is one of the first people to get to practice every morning and one of the very last to leave. He appeared on the Di Bradini 8 team. He’s honored to have this spot that was patrolled so long by Jeremy Brooker.

Name: Scott LaFave (Caps: 89 Goals: 2) (*** TEAM CAPTAIN ***)
Pos: LCB
Age: 32
Jersey #: 7
Club Team: Sporting Lakeport (Dancougar)
Bio: Scott is a tall, aggressive defender who is wise beyond his years, and it was noticed by a strong Dancougar club in Sporting Lakeport as he recently was transferred out of Daytopia. He takes no crap from the other team, and isn’t afraid to take a chance with a hard tackle. Usually, he is smart about it, but it will probably see him get booked every now and then, and can score the odd goal. He looks forward to earning cap #100 during qualifying and becomes the third captain in Newmanistanian World Cup qualifying history. (Kevin Lewis, Jeremy McAllister), and the first defender to wear the armband.

Name: Robert Selvy (Caps: 15 Goals: 0)
Pos: RCB
Age: 24
Jersey#: 2
Club Team: Port Vigilence (Dancougar)
Bio: At 16, Selvy won the league’s Rookie of the Year award with the Mariners, which is pretty impressive because usually the voters in the media get consumed by goal scoring numbers. Robert has maintained a high level of steady performance since then, which he has taken to Dancougar, where he has had a steady career. Has clicked rather well with Yaschter. Selvy is not an excessively aggressive defender, but don’t think you can push him around either, he demonstrates great composure.

Name: Alex Lampert (Caps: 71 Goals: 0)
Pos: RB
Age: 32
Jersey #: 3
Club Team: Cafundo do Juta (Cafundeu)
Bio: Lampert was groomed in the outstanding Centralia defensive system and had a few strong years there before he was purchased by Central United of Cafundeu, before later being moved to Cafundo do Juta. Alex is a very studious person, taking up after his father, who is brain surgeon. Lampert may have gone in that direction too if not for his football ability. He is very fast, with average height, and average physicality.

Name: Kyle Carrigan (Caps: 58 Goals: 4)
Position: LM
Age: 33
Number: 19
Club Team: Olympia Gladiators
Background: After an appearance in Di Bradini Cup 6, the younger brother of the great Kevin Carrigan finally got named to the national team, and furthermore, was named to the starting lineup in World Cup 44. He played well and has never relinquished the spot. Also like his brother, Kyle is the delivery man on corners. (NOTE: BEGINNING WITH THE MID-QUALIFYING FRIENDLY WITH BEARS ARMED, CARRIGAN IS NOW A SUB)

Name: Kevin Taylor (Caps: 24 Goals: 8)
Pos: CAM
Age: 28
Jersey #: 53 (superstition)
Club Team: NAPPC (Nethertopia)
Bio: An experiement of Yaschter’s which is turning out quite well. Taylor had always played up front, even with NAPPC (Where he still does), but Nelson felt as though Kevin could play this role quite well. Taylor accepted the challenge and really blossomed under Yaschter, and there is no player who has seen the change allow him to make a greater impact then it had for Taylor. Now with a full World Cup with Yaschter leading the way, he should emerge as one of our top threats.

Name: Keith Capstraw (Caps: 6 Goals: 0)
Pos: CDM
Age: 22
Jersey #: 5
Club Team: Daytopia Racers
Bio: Keith appeared as a substitute on the 8th Di Bradini roster as then coach Brian Carson was concerned about his issues with composure. Nelson Yaschter has no worries about that at all, and continues his trend of taking one of the defenders and playing them up the field a bit more in this kind of a defensive midfielder role.

Name: Billy Prescott (Caps: 36 Goals: 7)
Pos: RM
Age: 22
Jersey #: 17 (just like his dad)
Club Team: Tel Aviv Sharks (Jeruselem)
Bio: His father is a legend. Most people somewhat familiar with our senior team know all about Brett Prescott, the aggressive enforcer who is assigned to the opponent’s top forward to rough them up and get in their head. Well, Billy has been watching and learning from the best.. Now it is his time. Is Billy as good as his dad? We’ll see, but he sure plays like him, and he got off to a great start in qualifying, and played very well in the Cup of Harmony. And he has that often forgotten thing his dad could do too, having a very good accurate shot.

Name: Matthew Turner (Caps: 16 Goals: 11)
Position: LS
Age: 22
Number: 11
Club Team: Shuukyuu Kishin (Dancougar)
Background: Matthew played in Di Bradini Cup 8 as a starting forward and was expected to lead the team in scoring. That didn’t exactly happen, and Brian Carson seemed to lose interest. Not Nelson Yaschter. He believes that Turner is an amazing talent and gave him a shot in the Cup of Harmony. The rising star was picked up by Shuukyuu Kishin from Loudon and figures to lead that team for many years. (NOTE: BEGINNING WITH THE MID-QUALIFYING FRIENDLY WITH BEARS ARMED, TURNER IS NOW A SUB)

Name: Jennifer Vilardi (Caps: 77 Goals: 27) (ALTERNATE CAPTAIN)
Pos: RS
Age: 34
Jersey #: 15
Club Team: Tel Aviv Sharks (Jeruselem)
Bio: Jennifer and twin sister Shannon are a very exciting combination to watch, for many different reasons, and both will be on the national team once again in their familiar roles, Jennifer starting and Shannon on the bench. Jennifer is a very agile player, with good but not amazing speed. Most of her goals are scored when she is the “second player in”, such as off a deflection or a rebound. Her vision is outstanding, and hopefully no defender will make the mistake in thinking she’s soft, because she can be just as physical as the guys. This will probably be it for the twins in international play.


Name: Jennifer Bennett (Caps: 4 Clean Sheets: 1)
Pos: GK
Age: 21
Jersey #: 22
Club Team: Seminole Bay Gators
Bio: Jennifer became the first female goalkeeper ever to make any national side when she was named as the third string keeper to the Di Bradini 8 team. She got more experience training with the best when she was named the third stringer for the Cup of Harmony. Bennett still figures to be the future at this position for the Empire, but right now Hargrove gets the nod.

Name: Chris Johnston (Caps: 15 Goals: 0)
Pos: CB
Age: 35
Jersey #: 6
Club Team: Centralia Cougars
Bio: Chris has been hit and miss as far as what rosters he has been a part of and what rosters he has not. Most of his caps have come from this very role he will be in here, as a substitute. He is coming off quite a strong season with the Cougars, and was named NPL Defender of the Year, which is pretty impressive when you consider his age. That’s gotta account for something.

Name: Trevor Marshall (Caps: 6 Goals: 0)
Pos: CB
Age: 23
Jersey #: 8
Club Team: Centralia Cougars
Bio: Centralia just keeps producing the young defenders, and in Marshall, they have one very rough and aggressive player. Though just having average height, Trevor makes up for it by excellent strength. He had a tough time choosing becoming a hockey player or a football player, a decision that Centralia helped him make with their big contract offer and the prestige that comes along with playing in their system.

Name: Nick Roberts (Caps: 1 Goals: 0)
Pos: MID
Age: 24
Jersey #: 9
Club Team: Springfield Thoroughbreds
Bio: Though Roberts did get in one game as a reserve in the 8th Di Bradini Cup, his career never really took off until the last couple seasons. In Springfield’s offensive system, his confidence has soared, and he could see pretty good playing time here. Roberts has a great powerful shot, and is a gritty player. If only he had more speed, he would be a real dynamic player. (NOTE: BEGINNING WITH THE MID-QUALIFYING FRIENDLY WITH BEARS ARMED, ROBERTS IS NOW STARTING)

Name: Brittany Prescott (Caps: 5 Goals: 0)
Pos: MID
Age: 20
Jersey #: 71
Club Team: Tenderville United (Nethertopia/Candelaria And Marquez)
Bio: The scary thing for the world, perhaps, is that the great Brett Prescott has more then just one kid. The second of Brett Prescott’s three children, Brittany also appeared on the 8th Di Bradini Cup & the Cup of Harmony rosters as a reserve, but did not see any action in either, then started in Valanora for the 9th Di Bradini Cup. Don’t think for a moment either, that just because Brittany is female that she is any less of an aggressive agitator then her father and her older brother have been. In fact, Brett jokes that as Billy’s younger sister, and his only daughter, Brittany may have become the toughest of the three of them.

Name: Jeremy McAllister, Jr. Nickname: simply, “Junior” (Caps: 4 Goals: 3)
Pos: ST
Age: 16
Jersey #: 20 (of course)
Club Team: Sporting Lakeport (Dancougar)
Bio: Here he is. Little J-Mac is the oldest of son of the great Jeremy McAllister, the most prolific goal scorer in Newmanistanian history. Junior would love to do what his father did and win the Di Bradini Cup in his first ever international appearance. He possesses much of the same skill that made his father famous. Yes, he is still young, but when you got the bloodlines, does it matter? He’s been playing against older kids his whole life, so this will be no different. He’s not quite ready to start yet, but figures to replace Jennifer Vilardi in four years. When the Rockets need a jolt of excitement though, look for Junior to be the one that enters, especially in home matches to get the crowd going. (NOTE: BEGINNING WITH THE MID-QUALIFYING FRIENDLY WITH BEARS ARMED, JUNIOR IS NOW STARTING)

Name: Shannon Vilardi (Caps: 41 Goals: 7)
Position: ST
Number: 18
Age: 34
Club Team: Tel Aviv Sharks (Jeruselem)
Bio: She is the twin sister of Jennifer Vilardi, but so far she hasn’t gotten quite the same amount of interregional opportunity that her sister has. While that will continue here, Shannon recently moved to Jeruselem where she was able to, for the first time since playing in their backyard, be a teammate of Jennifer’s at the club level and it seems to have picked up her game.

**** RESERVES ****

Name: Andrew McClure (Caps: 5 Clean Sheets: 2)
Pos: GK
Age: 26
Jersey #: 21
Club Team: South Tier Seagulls
Bio: McClure started for the Rockets in the 8th Di Bradini Cup and has a ton of talent. This spot is surely disappointing for Andrew, who had to feel as though he’d be the frontrunner for the starting job. A tough season in South Tier is what did him in.

Name: Brett Taratino (Caps: 17 Goals: 1)
Position: CB
Age: 32
Jersey #: 12
Club Team: South Charlotte Condors
Bio: A very tall and aggressive defender, Brett did get national team time in Di Bradini 6, but seemed to be a forgotten man after that. Reportedly, Brian Carson thought he was “too” aggressive. Yaschter, however, believes that he should be a regular on this team.

Name: Matthew Coulson (Caps: 4 Goals: 0)
Pos: CB
Age: 22
Jersey #: 16
Club Team: Stroudsbourg Panthers
Bio: Coulson is average defender in terms of his appearance and height, but not in terms of heart. He is future captain material who does his best to lead by example. He has played one year in Stroudsbourg, a low-level NPL team, so he has gotten plenty of time defending star forwards. Played in Di Bradini 8 and 9 as a starter alongside Loughran and Selvy. (NOTE: EFFECTIVE AFTER MATCHDAY 4, COULSON WAS REMOVED FROM ROSTER DUE ILLEGAL DRUG USE).

Name: Meghan Vilardi (Caps: 2 Goals: 0)
Pos: MID
Age: 21
Jersey#: 10
Club Team: Southport TigersBio: Meghan is the younger sister of our well known set of twins, Jennifer and Shannon Vilardi, who each played in the Di Bradini Cup and are presently with the senior team. Meghan probably will not be quite as good as them, but she will be looking to make a name for herself too. Because the Vilardi twins often made Meghan be the goalkeeper when they practiced their shooting as young girls, Meghan picked up some pretty good defensive instincts, which she would build on, she’s become a midfielder while the twins are strikers. Graduated from being a reserve in the 8th Di Bradini Cup to a starter in the 9th Di Bradini Cup.

Name: Tony Dempster (Caps: 5 Goals: 3)
Pos: ST
Age: 24
Jersey #: 14
Club Team: Yuki City Athletic (Dancougar)
Bio: Speedster who just missed being eligible for the last Di Bradini Cup caught the eye of a strong Yuki City Atheltic Club in the 8th Di Bradini Cup, and is working hard to make a name for himself there. Here, he misses out from other positions due to the numbers game more then anything else. His playmaking ability is pretty special, still. Yaschter is looking to get him some playing time.

Candelaria And Marquez
03-05-2009, 21:24
Candelaria And Marquez National Football Team Squad for the 46th World Cup

Candelaria And Marquez is a minor (more or less) multicultural (kinda) democracy (eh) located, for reasons best known to itself, in the region of Rushmore. Strictly speaking, the country consists of only the two largest islands of the Candelarias archipelago, but in practise most of the various other semi-antonymous bodies send MPs to the Albrecht parliament, footballers to the Big Blues, and generally hang about the outskirts of the nation, adopting supercilious expressions and marrying their own sheep.

The state is best known for its improbable success in the sporting realm, its national teams having previously been crowned champions in field hockey (twice, apparently) and rugby union, before somehow scraping their way into World Cup 45. From a rank of fifteenth in the world, C&M inched their way towards an inevitable semi-final exit to Valanora… before actually beating them, and going to on achieve a sensational four-one extra-time victory over the Holy Empire to see Niv Cohen lift the greatest prize in global sport.

On the whole, Candelariasians are quite pleased about this.

As well as having hosted World Cup 44, the country is also known for its domestic football league, the CMSC, which has been home to foreign nationals from over fifty countries over the years. Albrecht FC, since we’re in a mood for trumpeting our, ahem, achievements, are the reigning Champions’ Cup holders.

For the sake of completeness, in case there’s any international virgins a-readin’, Candelariasians (yes… read ( it and weep) speak English or Spanish, except when they don’t, and actually ‘Spanish’ is pushing it a tad in any case. It’s a legitimate dialect thereof though, despite what anyone tells you. The overwhelming majority of Spanish-speakers reside on Marquez, and make up something over fifty per cent of the island’s population. There’s also Han and Sortherners and Bettians and whatnot, but it’s best not to think about it too much.

The final point of note is that the country’s successive governments have been well known – at least beyond Candelariasian shores – for making use of often highly sophisticated propaganda, state misinformation, media censorship and manipulation and, when all else fails, stabbings, in order to keep from the bulk of the Candelariasian people the ‘weird’ realities of the universe – including, among their fellow sporting nations, gnomes, elves, dwarves, androids, robotic ducks, ninja-monkey-monks, practitioners of actual voodoo, monks from an alternate dimension, pre-pubescent children, hedgehogs, sapient mice, sapient bears, sapient badgers, sapient cucumbers, sapient beans, sapient trees, zombies, vampires, Greek letters, aliens, sentient puppets, cartoon characters, invisible rabbits, killer swans, goalkeepers with no arms, purple stinging nellies, Neolithic men, onion choppers, pinging trees, teapots, and also did we mention the elves? Singing beans, giant toads and seemingly immortal football managers are more of a stretch for them to cover up, however, never mind the Geordie goblins and see-through sheep.

Make the best of it, anyway. It ain’t going to last…

C&M Wiki (

Big Blues Wiki (


Modifier: +1

RP Permissions: Do pick scorers, etcetera, and godmod away – with the proviso that almost anything that would be considered impossible in the “real world” (see gnomes, elves, dwarves, androids etcetera) would likewise be dismissed as such by most Candelariasians and, in many cases, removed from TV coverage by fancy CGI and the like by the state’s tech whizzes.


Head Coach: The now increasingly venerable Elgin Dannat – a man in his sixties, though you wouldn’t think it to look at him, on account of being transfixed instead by his improbable bulk – has bounced between zero, hero, zero and hero again rather a lot during his coaching career. After an extended spell as a not terribly successful youth team boss at Caires City, he ended up coaching the small northern Candelarian club to sensational back-to-back league titles, before being offered the C&M job. Once here, he won the Vahala Invitational Tournament in his Big Blues’ first outing, and reached the World Cup last sixteen on home turf, but his shiny glow began to fade rather rapidly as the team laboured miserably in their qualifying attempts for World Cup 45.

Anyhoo, as you’ll know by now, he somehow contrived to turn it around and actually go and win the bloody thing, eventually opting to stay on as manager in a shameless attempt to prove that it wasn’t just a fluke. As for his team, Dannat has traditionally favoured a 4-2-3-1 but seems wedded to a 4-4-2 that won the cup – and a team barely distinguishable from the way it was twelve months ago, barring the retired Enrique Silva de Aviz. The initial starting XI is therefore likely to look something along the likes of Sbaïz – Lopulalan, O’Brien, Estévez, G. P. Adekunde – Cohen (c), Amey, Zec, Kortsarian – Ibadulla and Spooner.

Dannat’s assistant manager is Alan Hampson, a no-less rotund former centre-half with a gammy left arm, with his other colleagues being Boston Mårtensson (defensive), Rául Vélez (offensive) and Andrew Bradley (pleasent enough, in his own way).


23. Joel Sbaïz, Aged 34, Chelmar FC [Yafor 2], STARTER, 73 caps
On the verge of becoming his country’s most-capped player, this Marquez-born, Candelarian-raised, Yaforite-based first-generation Candelariasian (his folks having fled from Macedonian imperialism, in case we haven’t mentioned that already) is a bit of a lej in Rushmore and Nova alike. Now that we’re world champions an’ all, we really can realistically claim this delightfully big and bendy fellow as one of the world’s finest custodians, so yay for that. Otherwise unflappable, his major concern is with any large, hairy opponents that might come his way, following an unfortunate incident in Nethertopia some years ago involving a gorilla and a bacon butty wagon.

22. Harry Rosalia, 27, Albrecht FC, 4 caps (1 as sub)
The perennial international bridesmaid despite making a place for the biggest club in the country his own, Rosalia may be destined to never hold down a first-team place for C&M – but that’s no great slight, considering that only three ‘keepers have ever won more than ten Big Blues caps. Another big boy – though of more of the ‘out’ variety than Sbaïz’s ‘up’ – the only Candelarian-born ‘keeper in the squad is quick-witted but can be caught napping by the sharpest of strikers.

1. Christian Fernández Montes, 23, Radyukevich CSC, 1 cap
Just about maintaining his place in the squad, the El din native Fernández has had a very impressive couple of years for the Jukos, and shares height and springiness with Sbaïz. His decision-making can still let him down, but he remains the likeliest bet to succeed the Chelmar star as C&M’s number one.


2. Gwynfardd Lopulalan, 26, KT Hotspur, STARTING RIGHT-BACK, 40 caps (1 as sub), 3 goals
Something of an untouchable in Dannat’s team, albeit not entirely down to his own talents, the Rosasharn-born Bettian Candelariasian Lopulalan appears destined to go down as his country’s finest full-back. Solid but sprightly, a clever passer of the ball equally capable of releasing sweeping crosses into the box… he’s really rather good, actually.

5. Eric O’Brien, 26, Marquez-Onwere, STARTING CENTRE-BACK, 27 caps
Now his country’s senior centre-half with Enrique Silva de Aviz’s international retirement, a massive weight rests on the shoulders of the Northlandish Candelariasian vice-captain. A natural leader of men and intelligent organiser of the back four, he lacks real speed but has the brains to stay a step ahead throughout. A notorious sufferer of piles, if you’re in the mood for collecting random trivia.

6. Pablo Estévez, 25, Albrecht Turkish, STARTING CENTRE-BACK
He may have no prior international experience, but Turkish picked him up from Cathedral City for a reason and the Marquezian has steadily developed into a very able player. His inclusion may yet have more to do with our general difficulties in the middle of the defence, post-Enrique, as well as a bit of a sop to the country’s Hispanophones, but Estévez is none-the-less a competent, speedy individual.

3. God’s Power Adekunde, 31, Albrecht Turkish, STARTING LEFT-BACK, 62 caps (2 as sub)
A somewhat unexpected selection, given the natural Candelariasian suspicion towards the qualities of thirtysomethings, but the world would be a sad place indeed if a player named God’s Power Adekunde didn’t at least have a shot of making his country’s all-time top five. The eldest of the vast Adekunde clan; GPA is a physical monster and bright enough to fill in anywhere across the back, but his speed is beginning to suffer.

12. Matthew Logan, 23, Albrecht FC
The back-up right-back, Logan’s presence at least means that Dannat has held his hands up regarding the fallibility of Caires City product Austin Neal. An able player throughout the Scorpions’ title-winning effort last season, he won’t excite in either direction and it’s hard to reason that he’d be handed this place were he not an Albrecht FC player, but still, here he is. Woo?

13. Tom Durrant, 27, IYC Vanan [Yafor 2], 17 caps (10 as sub)
On the opposite flank, Dannat opts for experience in the form of the MarquezOW-produced Durrant, over the shiny newness of Love Cummins, Marc Meesschaert, Campbell Raviranjan or Oliver Wilkinson. But he really is that solid, certainly when compared to Adekunde, and will get starts as his direct opponent ages – especially during backs-to-the-wall situations where his Yaforite training should help him excel.

18. Jono Plunkett, 22, Caires Sports
Well whoop-de-bloody-doop; it’s the first ever Caires Sports player to make the senior C&M squad after twenty years. Not before time, then, and Plunkett certainly deserves the call-up however mediocre the other options may be. First and foremost, the lad has height and a certain grace about him lacking in both O’Brien and Estévez, and he may well end up making a more natural partner to one or the other than each other.


19. Niv Cohen, 30, Albrecht Turkish, STARTING RIGHT MIDFIELDER, Captain, 68 caps (2 as sub), 15 goals
As with more than a few of his peers, this World Cup may well be Cohen’s last hurrah – but what a servant he’s been. Granted, he can’t run for toffee – but he hardly needs to exert himself overly, bringing pinpoint crosses and a fine free-kick to the table, alongside an instinctive understanding of his colleagues’ movements and manager’s tactical plans.

4. Ben Zec, 27, Albrecht FC, STARTING DEFENSIVE MIDFIELDER, 34 caps (6 as sub), 3 goals
He’ll never be the equal of Corradini or Mengucci in the holding role, but Zec needs not worry about filling those big boots. A very solid presence and distributor of the ball, Zec’s role in Dannat’s side is pretty much undisputed. What is more, he had serious scores to settle after missing out on the World Cup final itself through suspension.

16. Lawrence Amey, 25, Caires City, STARTING OFFENSIVE MIDFIELDER, 23 caps (6 as sub), 4 goals
Arguably, the fight for the right to provide the key prong of the C&M midfield is the biggest in the squad, but for now Amey looks to have taken a massive head start after his brace at the World Cup final. A former striker who has done well to curb his naturally selfish instincts and become a true team players, Amey can never the less be counted upon to have his fair share of shots. Not, for all that, an especially popular player – as an almost unique case in modern times of a Caires Sports product jumping ship across the city, and a keen wearer of ringlets and coloured boots.

11. Aaron Kortsarian, 31, Cafundó do Juta [Cafundéu], STARTING LEFT MIDFIELDER, 55 caps (6 as sub), 14 goals
Undoubtedly still one of the Big Blues’ biggest dangermen, and the only real option on the left, Aaron of the Nuts still suffers from regular injuries and dips in form, but on his day can honestly be among the world’s best. His speed may not be what it was, but Kortsarian’s change of pace remains a real weapon and, if anything, his finishing has improved notably over recent years.

8. Harvey Vavasour, 25, Dunboor FC [Cafundéu], 18 caps (6 as sub), 2 goals
An all-action, box-to-box midfielder who missed out on the World Cup knock-out stages through injury but still achieved enough to impress the CCFM scouts; Vavasour was something of a gamble when first picked but has undeniably proven his stripes – not least when one looks at how much KT Hotspur have suffered without him.

14. Macario Oliveira Tavares, 22, Marquez-Onwere
After a helluva lot of soul-searching, Dannat leaves out both his little pet Nic Lloyd and Ishmael Dolphin himself in favour of MarquezOW’s hotish youngish thing lighting up their superb CMSC1 start. Rather more lightweight that the DFP (see below below below) but certainly pacier, the MOT is a nightmare on the left and could be crucial to Dannat’s plans in any game’s dying few minutes.

15. Francesco Avola, 25, Loudon Leopards [Newmanistan], 4 caps (3 as sub)
Just sneaking in at the last minute ahead of World Cup final hero Joel Mercado, Avola is one of barely a handful of genuinely half-decent holding midfielders available to Dannat. A hit in the Newmanistanian league, certainly, having won a trio of major individual gongs following the most recent NPL season (adding to another pair picked up a few years back), though one can only really guess at the average quality of his day-to-day opponents, with only limited experience of CMSC football with MarquezOW. Another product of the freakish village of Calamocha, Avola is a tad more lightweight than Zec but arguably possesses the greater natural talent.

17. Darren Robinson, 21, Albrecht Turkish
Even with Amey and Vavasour in the squad, Dannat had a vast number of options to choose from here – Will Sussex, Robin Jacobs, Robin Smith, Jason Saunderson, Salvador González… and they’re just the over-21s. In the end though, he’s plumped for the certainly versatile Robinson; a large, long-legged lad capable of covering an awful lot of ground very quickly and as adept in a more conservative role as he is barrelling forwards into the opposition box.

21. Diego Fernando Pappas, 26, Marquez-Onwere, 25 caps (16 as sub), 1 goal
A player seemingly destined for a role as supersub and little more, Pappas will no doubt be giving his attempts to overhaul Cohen one final push this cycle. A genuine handful, particularly late in the game, the winger always warrants the attention of a dedicated marker and can often open up space for his team-mates as a result – even if his own goalscoring and assists tally leaves plenty to be desired.


7. Abdul Ibadulla, 27, Juavi FC [Valanora], STARTING FORWARD, 54 caps (7 as sub), 21 goals
In World Cup 45, Ibadulla truly arrived. A genuine star for mid-table Juavi, the Clotaire native lacks real speed and strength but brings height, an excellent positional sense and unerring accuracy, making him so much more than merely a target man. His strike rate is somewhat better than Tom Smith’s, and he’s on his way to being one of the Big Blues’ top couple of scorers of all time… although, to be fair, that’s not an altogether wondrous achievement in and of itself…

9. David Spooner, 25, Clube Imperial [Cafundéu], STARTING STRIKER, 34 caps (10 as sub), 8 goals
Emerging as a goal machine for Caires City following his move from Candelaria-Allemali, Spooner’s form crumbled somewhat last year for both club and country. Now onto his third club, the Spoon has the chance to get his career right back on track, but concerns remain over whether he’s truly the best partner for Ibadulla. Quick, powerful and still a natural goalscorer, he really has to step up to the plate now.

10. Danny Adams, 23, Central United [Cafundéu], 1 cap (as sub)
Yet another foreign-based striker in the squad, and though he may play for the lowlier side Adams may yet knock Spooner from a starting role following his exceptional first season in Cafundéu. A fox-in-the-box who’s light and speedy but by no means ickle, Adams could easily be a natural partner for either of the two supposed starters in a pinch and looks like being a dead cert for the squad for the foreseeable future.

20. Zachary Adekunde, 25, Radyukevich CSC, 10 caps (9 as sub), 3 goals
Perhaps fortunate to keep his place in the squad, the youngest of the Adekunde brothers clearly isn’t one of the four best Candelariasian forwards out there. But that’s not really the point – Adekunde brings a physical presence unparalleled among his countrymen, and he offers Dannat a unique option as a second-half bruiser. And he scored in the World Cup final, let’s not forget.

Gordon Bay City
03-05-2009, 22:00
The Second Half of Qualifying...

With the new city-state's nobility seemingly less than chuffed with performances thus far, we present... A New Squad, as taken from Mark Baker's own notes:

Gordon Bay City.

Starting XI: Gnuraxai – Adlington, Bm-Chm, Pessotto, Jorge – Aino, Kxaŋ͡ǂi, Johann, Briiiiiiiaaaaaan – Alan, Otters.

Subs: Bla (centre-half); Foga (right-back); Ghislain (right midfield); Friedelinde (centre midfield); Keith (keith).

Gnuraxai. Somewhat orangey, five-foot long ears. Bit nervy but, to stress, five-foot long ears. Not sure how much control he’s got over them, mind you, but… Old-school reference: reminds one of Durkie Fontain. Stick him in goal. Might flap a bit, but won’t need gloves. Check rules re: padded ear muffs.

Mu’hurrrghougha Adlington. Bactrian camel, two humps. It’s fat, not water, don’t get that wrong again. Fine change of pace, good ma… good camel in extreme conditions. Pity we didn’t have him for Jeruselem away. Not especially manoeuvrable, mind you. Right-back, I’m thinking.

Bm-Chm. Gnome. Low centre of gravity; robust in the box. A centre-half, I’d wager. Prolly no point sending him up for corners, but you never know.

Furio Pessotto. Huge, strong, furry, claws instead of fingers. Might pick up the odd yellow, I’m thinking, but decent foil for Bm-Chm? Generally shy, needs taking out of himself. Team-building? Ask Aino about paintballing away-day?.

“Jorge.” Floating human head w/ talons & feathers. Flies with its massive ears. No feet = concern, not what you’d call a natural passer of the ball, but always good for the Hispanic vote. Left-back, maybe?

Aino.Captain. Faerie. Brother of Queen. Right-winger. Couldn’t complete a pass to save his life, but Queen may sever key arteries, limbs etc if not picked. Don’t substitute him, for God’s sake!

Walter Johann. Short, big face. Ginger, blind but industrious. Will probably work till he drops. Box-to-box midfielder?

Kxaŋ͡ǂi. And that’s a nasal uvular palato-alveolar click. Remember that, might save your life. Sort-of man shaped, has eyes on the soles of his feet. Runs about a lot, but can’t see where he’s going. Reminds me of Luís Enrique Torrealba in his pomp? Holding Midfielder.

Briiiiiiiaaaaaan. Zombie, possibly? Bits keep dropping off; not going to last long against robust opponents. Doubt he’ll fancy it against Milchama. Left winger, then.

One-Who-Giggles-At-Otters. Lanky bugger, six fingers, big head. No nose, but big head. Worth hoofing it up to in final few minutes. Supersub striker?

Alan. Good feet for a man (?) who seems to spend half his time upside-down. Needs special boots = those extra-light ones? Can we order them in from other side of border? Also, metatarsal concerns?Dressing room habits need watching re: faeces. WINGS. Good in the air; target man? Check rules on flying strikers!

The available substitutes are:

Phaseolus Lunatus. Singing bean, wheels on the bike, etc. Small… really quite small, actually, but nippy; v. handy with a spade, may make a valuable irritant late in the day, but a tad lightweight to start every week, methinks. Main ingredient in chè đậu ngự. [DECEASED: Eaten by shrew during goal celebration]

Gjöl Föga. Little fella, looks about sixty, but jaysus he’s strong. A hard worker, no doubt, but seems a tad set in his ways. Can’t see him adapting to the rigours of modern football, sadly. Could stick him at right-back though, maybe. In a pinch.

Stellan Blå. Another one of those tall and skinny types. Could be classed as ‘elegant centre-half’, but that might be pushing it.

Ghislain. Er, fair enough. About four foot, permanently hunched, claws, hooves, I can’t make out a word he’s saying… Right midfield, if I’m absolutely desperate?

Friedelinde. Um. Ooh. Gosh. Gosh. She’s very… very, isn’t she? Ah… Cor. So, about five foot, blonde, blue eyes and… yes. Gosh. Centre of the park, maybe? Mm.

Keith. Twenty inches tall, furry, tail. He’s a brownie, let’s not muck about. Suppose I could give him the last five minutes, sometime.

Once upon a time, Gordon Bay City – so called because it was a city, near a bay, named after a bloke named Gordon – was a thriving city in the shiny new country of Candelaria And Marquez, leaving behind the horrors of the Civil War to forge a fresh new identity that made it the apple of the regional eye and the model for economic and social development for developing conurbations across the Candelarias.

And then the late sixties happened, and a cataclysmic event that resulted in the deaths – and disappearances – of thousands, levelled much of the city, destroyed its future, and threatened to tear Candelaria And Marquez asunder.

It did not. For by providence or design, or more likely both; Gordon Bay City contained direct access points with an extra-dimensional realm (or possibly abode) inhabited by a large quantity of faeries. And, like most things with an ae in them, such as maelstroms and paedophilia, they are not good.

In the years that followed, their – or, to put it another way, Their – grip over the Candelariasian government was strengthened with every passing year. By their beck and call, successive administrations were forced to use methods of ever-increasing severity and sophistication to keep the overwhelming majority of Candelariasians in a state of blissful ignorance as to the true nature of the world beyond their shores ostensibly, as far as the government and relevant Ministries were concerned, in the name of the protection both of the Candelariasian people from the terrifying weirdness that surrounded them, and the GBC-based Svartálfar (innocent, nightmare-causing goblins apparently under the protection of the fae) from the terrifying Candelariasians that surrounded them.

From faeries to elves, talking bears to singing beans; such concepts were largely ignored by a servile media, and mocked by the rest. People murmured amongst themselves, and wondered about the things they’d seen on rare trips abroad, but the conspiracy held the country in a concrete cloak of selective blindness. New immigrants stayed quiet, repeat offenders were hushed into the steely maw of the midnight something, and anodyne averageness held sway over the land.

But, in the years to follow, it would become apparent that all was not well in the realm/domain/abode of the fae. A new generation was rising, one which viewed their elders with undisguised contempt, and they received it back in kind. Their influence became clear barely two Candelariasian years ago, when a group lead by the girl Leohi, a faerie of noble stock and wielding magiks most potent, successfully lobbied the administration of the day into harnessing the power of the Time Dilation Devices, artefacts of Lost Days, or summat, which caused selected events, from memories to physical forms to the dates on newspapers and whatnot, to be propelled backwards through Time. Twenty years, to date, or ten World Cups worth.

Little did those few Candelariasians with any awareness of all this know, that the fae’s plan did not centre around enabling the country to compete in international football on a level playing-field – as had widely been assumed, in a typically sport-centric fashion – but to align certain world events, including the Big Blues’ first meeting with their Az-czzer in Albrecht, with the Gordon Bay disaster. Those humans co-opted into working for the faeries in their own realm would come to believe with the greatest passion in the Great Plan and the Glorious Future that would result from it, but certain factions within the faeries’ nobility had goals more clearly defined than a happy, jolly future of inter-species unity: namely the utter enslavement of the Candelariasian race.

Perhaps they would have achieved it, or perhaps they will yet; but, for reasons best know to herself, Leohi chose to force the issue. Enticing the young son of the Candelariasian Minister for Remedial Teaching, Jenny Harris MP, into taking a place at her side, Leohi left a trap that the politician could not help but walk into. Displaying before them an unwelcome human defiling the land of the Kolan – as they called themselves, though this is not a plot point worth lingering on, sadly – a was enough for Leohi to assemble an army of young fae. Their time, she told them, was now. This final insult could not go unavenged.

Their destination, naturally, was Gordon Bay City. Some locals fled in the ensuing savagery, others bent to the new Queen’s all-encompassing will, while others still remain in their homes – terrified not of their otherworldly captors, but of the advance of bird flu: for the deceitful influence of the Ministry of Remedial Teaching, Rational Thought or Reality Twisting remains pervasive, even from beyond the new borders. For now, the faerie queen appears content to allow it, but Gordon Bay City remains a detached islet within Candelaria, surrounded by an impenetrable forcefield, the chalked border guarded by armed men on one side and faeries on the other.

With the link between the Queen, her disciples, and their Elders apparently severed; the future of her Goals, whatever they may be, remain unclear. For now, all-out war has been averted by inaction on both sides, but many in the Candelariasian government remain itching for a final conflict, a decisive war to end the Kolan’s domination over Candelariasian affairs once and for all, one way or the other.

As for the Candelariasian people, they remain as uninformed as ever, their attentions held by the current and somewhat unexpected goodness of the national football team, which happens to be the reigning World Cup champions, in case you hadn’t heard. As for the Kolan, they too have become bewitched by the unfamiliar concept of sport, and await the team of the Queendom of Gordon Bay City’s imminent domination over the world. They are superior life-forms, after all.

It’s probably also worth pointing out at this point that the island of Green Island, a semi-autonomous province of Candelaria And Marquez, is currently being ruled by Sam Mc O’Neil, an insane half-elf, and his alliance of sentient waterfowl, with the goal of transforming the island in the global powerhouse of world soccer, with little care for human rights abuses. The natural Candelariasian tendency to follow their leaders’ instructions is being swelled to its limits and beyond, with the creation of a true Compulsory Consumerist State based around the excessive consumption of football and football-related products.

But that may not be as important as the other stuff. Haven’t entirely decided yet.

Now reade on…

Presenting Gordon Bay City: A Team of Faeries

Manager: While lowering themselves to appointing a Candelariasian coach, never mind a human one, was no doubt a stomach-churner (assuming they have stomachs and stuff, obviously), the self-appointed captain of the Gordon Bay City national team and brother of Queen Leohi, Aino, found the perfect candidate to impart his decades of knowledge, during the World Cup final itself.

Mark Baker – his childhood, early life and nascent career manipulated at every turn by the Kolan themselves and his servile, long-lost sister; his time as C&M manager cut short by an abduction event his addled, ancient brain can barely remember; and after many months later spent in the grim heart of the most maximum of maximum security prisons in the Candelarias after an attempt on the life of the then Minister for Rational Thought, Lyndon Hernández; and after formally being declared dead by the state after his ‘body’ was found in Albrecht cove; and after learning that his long-suffering wife had since become romantically involved with his successor as C&M manager, Lloyd Donnelly; and after being stolen away from his desperate hole by a Welsh brownie reluctantly working for Hernández’s rogue successor; and after a subsequent and very public ‘resurrection’ in the middle of a World Cup quarter-final against Starblaydia; and after an ill-fated stint as the nation’s Under-21 manager; and after retiring to the Liverpool Hills Sunshine Memory Towers only to find himself contacted both by yet another former Minister for Rational Thought and willing captive of the Kolan, Sal Morgan, and new and struggling C&M manager Elgin Dannat, pleading for his help on rather separate matters; and after travelling to Gordon Bay City to find answers and internal peace, or death; and after being faced with his sister, now as one with a Time Dilation Device; and after being abandoned alone in the new, earthly realm of the faerie Queen; and after doing lots of other stuff that honestly makes one wonder what the bloody point was, when all’s said and done – that Mark Baker was appointed manager of the GBC, on pain of summary execution. Or worse.

Forbidden from picking from the troubled city’s Candelariasian populace, Baker was presented with a handful of Kolan – male and female, all young (but that would appear to be but a relative term) and ready to stun the world.

They play in a 4-4-2.

Richmond Park, located in the modern town’s seaside district, was an 8,090 capacity arena used by Gordon Bay City Football Club. With the Jeebees exodus to the nearby town of Bulent, the ground has been annexed by the Kolan. Thousands of baying faeries, and perhaps even the occasional servile human, can be expected to watch their shiny new team dispose of the opposition with utter brutality.

And yes, these creatures are more deluded than your even your average Iglesian.

Notes for tourists and other perverts:

Entry into Gordon Bay City is strictly limited to the official travelling party and no more than five hundred accredited supporters, with aircraft permitted to land along the abandoned Golden Creek Road, co-opted as the state’s airstrip for this purpose. Candelariasian authorities are unlikely to challenge the necessary entry into C&M airspace, but land vehicles are high unlikely to be granted permission to cross the border in either direction.

The entire travelling party will be expected to accept lodgings at the state’s one StayHere Inn or the neighbouring bed & breakfast. Any movement around the town centre will be strictly monitored, and fraternisation with Candelariasian locals in a manner likely to provoke civil unrest will result in summery deportation, but a number of eateries and similar establishments – both Candelariasian-operated and Kolani-controlled – will be made available on request.

The playing squad will be permitted access to Richmond Park and its training pitches for extended periods in the afternoon prior to the matchday and morning of the game, if required, in buses laid on by GBC’s Kolani authorities and at a time of the host’s choosing.

There are unlikely to be any travelling supporters from the GBC end.

Permission Box:

Oh, don’t worry, I wouldn’t be so cruel as to make you pay attention to any of the above nonsense. Do whatever thou will, frankly.

The Rainbow Warriors will send the same squad that flamed out in the Empire Charity Cup, [result pending]ed in AOCAF Cup XXVI and impressed with a #5 finish in Baptism of Fire X3I3. (OOC Note: I've just decided that XXXIII is represented as X3I3 in Norwellia because it's cool and I say so.) The starting lineup will see a few changes, mixing the experience of the ECC and AOCAF starting eleven with the vigor and vim of the high-flying BoF squad.

Hydoc Pedlar
Age: 27
Club: Therpian (Peisandros)
Position: Left/central defender
6'1", 178#
6 caps, 1 GF
Notes: Smooth and elegant runner with tenacious man-marking ability; strong in the air; only 5 starts in 2008 (TQCC 12) due to leg injury

Aaliyah Morris
Club: Cataluña Heroica
Position: Left-side defender
5'10", 155#
4 caps
Notes: Speedy winger; strikes dangerous free kicks and serves creative crosses from the left, preferring to assist rather than score

Kentisesh Voreght
Age: 33
Club: Durdenheim F.C.
Position: Central defender
6'1", 180#
13 caps
Notes: Dangerous in the air on set pieces with his height and vertical leap; has a flair for the dramatic


Barbara Senior
Age: 32
Club: Winston F.C.
Position: Right-side defensive midfielder (starts as RM)
5'8", 155#
13 caps
Notes: Speedy with tenacious defense; disrupts opposing defenses with speed and tireless work rate on the right side

Sherri McGuire
Age: 25
Club: Oceanview City F.C.
Position: Left-side attacking midfielder
5'8", 145#
3 caps, 1 GF
Notes: Lightning speed, quick feet, intelligent defensive instincts. Rising quickly in the game; expect to see McGuire trading up soon, and expect to see her sub in for Frost or Ikaru when attacking inspiration is needed.

Misina Ponten
Age: 26
Club: Durdenheim F.C.
Position: Left/central attacking midfielder
5'8", 150#
15 caps, 2 GF
Notes: Strong and swift; thunderous left foot; can quickly start or join the counterattack. Her greater international experience will see her subbed in often, due to her chemistry with lineup usurper Frost at Durdenheim and with midfield mastermind Ikaru on the international level.

Mia Frost
Age: 27
Club: Durdenheim F.C.
Position: Central attacking midfielder
6'1", 170#
7 caps, 2 GF
Notes: Versatile player, high level of technical skill, confidence going at defenders

Δημήτρης Ρουβάς (Dmitris Roivas)
Age: 30

Position: Central defensive midfielder
5'10", 170#
7 caps
Notes: Hard-nosed tackler and tenacious ball winner with speed and exceptional ball control. Suffered an ankle sprain in the ECC, missed all of AOCAF while rehabilitating, and was not tested much during the BoF.

Chris Padilla
Age: 28
Club: Cataluña Heroica
Position: Left/central defensive midfielder
5'8", 145#
8 caps, 1 GF
Notes: Sublime ball handling skills; great vision and subtle, intelligent reading of play. Having found opportunity in Roivas's fall, Padilla will serve as the defensive anchor in the middle of an attack-minded midfield.

James Howe
Age: 30
Club: Forest Glen F.C.
Position: Attacking midfielder
5'8", 140#
2 caps
Notes: Versatile midfielder, hard worker, with palpable imagination and passion

Mesit Xura
Age: 33
Club: Engels F.C.
Position: Central midfielder
5'10", 160#
17 caps, 2 GF
Notes: Incredible skill, vision, composure; experience leading the midfield. Xura's versatility and experience allow him to be subbed in for any of the midfielders, but he will primarily serve as a defensive addition and occasional attacker.


Alain Vermeeren
Age: 29
Club: Engels F.C.
Position: Center forward
6'1", 195#
17 caps, 11 GF
Notes: Excellent work rate, strong finisher; this tall, dreadlocked Achtervolgingan was affectionately nicknamed "The Flying Dutchman" by hometown fans while leading Engels to the league lead in goals scored in 2008. He is fast becoming Norwellia's biggest international superstar, repeatedly leading his league and his national team in goals scored.

Natalia Richter
Age: 22
Club: Thessaly F.C. (Peisandros)
Position: Center forward
6'0", 180#
13 caps, 4 GF

Doshese Pagliloe
Age: 34
Club: Durdenheim F.C.
Position: Center forward
6'0", 175#
2008 stats: 24 GP, 12 GS

Nίκος Αμπάτης (Nikos Ampatis)
Age: 29
Club: Engels F.C.
Position: Right/center forward
5'9", 160#
8 caps, 4 GF

The Urna Eletrônica National Team

Urna Eletrônica is a country focused on politics. The biggest events in the country are the elections, and there are elections for everything. So it'd be natural if the team was composed only by politicians. The list of players is below, with their position and team. As with most politicians, they were able to extend their term a bit, but this time we assure you this will be their last term in office. They could have escaped from a roster change this time, but this won't happen next cup.

Manager - Deodoro da Fonseca: founder of elections in Urna Eletrônica, this man is so old that he doesn't move, talk or do anything. Some say that he is dead.


1- Ulysses Guimarães (goalkeeper/PMDB): surely the most experienced player of the team and a bit old to continue playing. But it was his choice to continue playing football, and the fans think that he can die one day playing football.

2- Roberto Freire (defender/PCB): defender of the democracy, dreams of communism in Urna Eletrônica. Defends the equality, the freedom of religion, the universities, but is viewed with suspicion by some people, a barrier for his goals.

3- Paulo Maluf (defender/PDS): this player has problems with the police, but has many loyal friends. Attackers playing against him must not bring their wallets with them, otherwise Maluf will surely steal them and they won’t noticed it. But, if someone discovers that Maluf stole something, he’ll deny and say he had never seen that wallet before in his whole life.

4- Ronaldo Caiado (defender/PSD): this man isn’t popular and it’s difficult to be certain about his ideas. The only thing we know about him is that he has some farms and is one of the leaders in his political parties... well, there he must be popular.

5- Enéas Carneiro (midfielder/PRONA): very popular, but is a target for jokes. Many people don’t think he is really serious, and that he isn’t a true politician, but his style surely conquered the hearts of many. His huge beard (bigger than Lula’s), combined with his way of talking (he talks shouting... always shouting) really makes him noticeable in the field.

6- Guilherme Afif (defender/PL): friend of the defender Maluf, has a past of alliances with army generals and a dictatorship. He tries to avoid being linked with them, so he doesn’t like to talk about the past. Moves a lot inside the field, making many gestures.

7- Leonel Brizola (midfielder/PDT): popular player, is loved by many but hated by many too. He likes to provoke his opponents, and dislikes the media too. He is good at making funny comments, which usually humiliate his opponents. Has the respect of most of the population, but most end deciding by voting on other candidates.

8- Fernando Collor (midfielder/PRN): very charismatic, you’ll like this player, even if you’re playing against him. And he’ll take advantage of this fact to steal money from your bank account until you discover he is controlling your life. Be cautious, you’ll never know when he’ll arrive... he appears when you’re least expecting.

9- Lula (attacker/PT): a strong player full of strange phrases and pronunciation mistakes, he knows how to control the ball well and how to shoot to the goal. He is very popular, but many people don’t trust him, maybe because of his big beard. Poor people see in Lula their representative in the National Team.

10- Mário Covas (attacker/PSDB): solid and serious player, is respected by his team mates, but this doesn’t mean they like him. But he dislikes most of his team mates too. Is a responsible player, and work hard for the team. Doesn’t like to get involved in personal discussions, but, when this happens, he becomes ferocious.

11- Sílvio Santos (attacker/PMB): a businessman that decided to use his popularity to become a politician. He knows nothing about politics, but a lot about personal marketing, so everyone likes him even when he makes mistakes. And, if needed, he can use some of his money to make the media say good things about him.


12- Marronzinho (goalkeeper/PSP): a poor person that has difficulties even to find something to eat, dreams of using the technology of an important company to find water in his homeland, a dry place. He stays quiet for most of the time but, when he talks, it means that is something very important!

13- Lívia Maria (midfielder/PN): only woman in the team, this is the only important fact about her. Comes to give a feminine touch in the National Team, as she surely doesn’t have a place to play.

14- Paulo Gontijo (defender/PG): well, this man isn’t much popular, but has some friends. Nothing that could help him to win a place in the starting team.

15- Aureliano Chaves (midfielder/PFL): is linked too with the army generals (but much more than Afif, being considered a friend of them), which isn’t good for his popularity. Also, many people from his own party don’t think he is able to win a disputed election.

16- Affonso Camargo Neto (defender/PTB): is friend of anyone that has the power inside the country. Because of that, he has already been a friend of the most different kind of people possible, which isn’t a good thing for his popularity.

17- Celso Brant (attacker/PMN): another experienced player, seems too old to play in the starting eleven. He is popular with older people, but the younger don’t even know him, so this is a curious situation.

18- Antônio Pedreira (defender/PPB): owner of a strong name, this is really the only thing that he has, so he won’t be much noticed in the team.

19- Fernando Gabeira (attacker/PV): probably the most famous politician in the bench, is known for being the defender of freedom, including freedom of using drugs and to make whatever you want to do, being against laws that limit the people’s freedom. Opposed the army generals.

20- Zamir Teixeira (midfielder/PCN): another player that will just fill the bench, won’t be able to take the place of the other politicians, which are much more famous.

21- Manoel Horta (midfielder/PDC do B): surely the least important player of the team, if we don’t count the third goalkeeper.

22- Eudes Mattar (defender/PLP): who is this guy? Well, we don’t know too, but surely it’s just someone to make the bench look full.

23- Armando Corrêa (goalkeeper/PMB): this man is someone that wanted to become a good politician, but decided to give Sílvio Santos a chance, because he knew he’d never win anything. So, he now stays in the most obscure position of the National Team.

Opereta's National Team:

Composed by poor people that live in the subway of the main Urna Eletrônica city, Caixa Dois, an area called Opereta by its citizens these players are very determined and willing to win the game, so they can win some money to buy food and subway tickets to reach other parts of the city.

So, yeah.


A squad, eh? A squad, you say... Oh well. Here are some random wikipage article thingies, combined with some foolish ideas as Dariusville's roster this year. With pictures. Yaay.

Manager: Professor Douglas.
The poor fellow is forced by his government to return to the World Cup once again.
Poor bugger.

Goalkeeper: The letter D
D is the fourth letter in the Latin alphabet. Its name in English (pronounced /diː/) is spelled dee, plural dees.

Left defender: A Go-Kart
Karts vary widely in speed and some (known as Superkarts) can reach speeds exceeding 160 mph (250 km/h)[1], while go-karts intended for the general public in amusement parks may be limited to speeds of no more than 15 mph (25 km/h).

Central defender: A Brussel sprout
The Brussels (or brussels) sprout (Brassica oleracea Gemmifera Group) of the Brassicaceae family, is a Cultivar group of wild cabbage cultivated for its small (typically 2.5–4 cm or 1–1.5 in diameter) leafy green buds, which resemble miniature cabbages.

Central defender: Arachne
In Greco-Roman mythology, Arachne (pronounced /ə-ˈræk-ni/) was a great mortal weaver who boasted that her skill was greater than that of Minerva, the Latin parallel of Pallas Athena, goddess of crafts. The offended goddess set a contest between the two weavers but, according to Ovid,[1] the mortal weaver's subjects, the loves of the gods, was so offensive that Minerva destroyed Arachne's tapestry and loom. Ultimately, the goddess turned Arachne into a spider.

Left defender: A ronin
A ronin (浪人 ,rōnin?) was a samurai with no lord or master during the feudal period (1185–1868) of Japan. A samurai became masterless from the ruin or fall of his master, or after the loss of his master's favor or privilege.

Central defensive midfielder: Jesus Christ (Captain)
Jesus of Nazareth (7–2 BC/BCE – 26–36 AD/CE),[2][3] also known as Jesus Christ, is the central figure of Christianity and is worshipped by most Christian churches as the Son of God and as God incarnate. Christians also view him as the Messiah foretold in the Old Testament; Judaism rejects this claim. Islam considers Jesus a prophet, while several other religions revere him in some way.

Left midfielder: Frodo Baggins
Frodo Baggins is a fictional character in J. R. R. Tolkien's legendarium.
He is a principal protagonist of Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings. He is also mentioned in The Silmarillion. He was a hobbit of the Shire who inherited Sauron's Ring from Bilbo Baggins and undertook the quest to destroy it in Mount Doom.

Right midfielder: A blind cat
The cat (Felis catus), also known as the domestic cat or house cat to distinguish it from other felines and felids, is a small predatory carnivorous species of crepuscular mammal that is valued by humans for its companionship and its ability to hunt vermin, snakes, scorpions, and other unwanted household pests. It has been associated with humans for at least 9,500 years.

Central attacking midfielder: F-15 Eagle
The McDonnell Douglas (now Boeing) F-15 Eagle is a twin-engine, all-weather tactical fighter designed to gain and maintain air superiority in aerial combat. It was developed for the United States Air Force, and first flew in July 1972. It is one of the most recognized fighters of the modern day. The F-15E Strike Eagle derivative is an all-weather strike fighter that entered service in 1989. The U.S Air Force plans to keep the F-15 in service until 2025.

Striker: A cushion plant
A cushion plant is a compact, low growing, mat forming plant that is found in alpine, subalpine, arctic, or subarctic environments around the world. The term "cushion" is usually applied to woody plants that grow as spreading mats, are limited in height above the ground (a few inches at most), have relatively large and deep tap roots, and have life histories adapted to slow growth in a nutrient poor environment with delayed reproductivity and reproductive cycle adaptations. The plant form is an example of parallel or convergent evolution with species from many different plant families on different continents converging on the same evolutionary adaptations to endure the harsh environmental conditions.

Striker: Lech, the Polish kawaler
A knight is a "gentleman soldier" or member of the warrior class of the Middle Ages in Europe. In other Indo-European languages, cognates of cavalier or rider are more prevalent (viz French chevalier, Portuguese cavaleiro, Spanish caballero, Italian cavaliere, Polish kawaler for modern knights and rycerz for medieval knights, German Ritter, Scandinavian and Dutch ridder, Czech rytíř and Finnish ritari), suggesting a connection to the knight's legendary mode of transport.

Starting XI
The Letter D
Ronin Arachnid Brussel Sprout Go-kart
Jesus Christ
Frodo Baggins Blind Cat
F-15 Eagle
A cushion plant Lech, the Polish kawaler

Official Squad List/Roster for Allemenschen:

Okay, we're going to stop this pretense of actually having an official team. But if you're really interested, there's a semi-fight between the purple-stinging nellies and the androids over who can play for Allemenschen. At the moment, this is the android roster:

6748 - welder
9123 - door holder

1245 - egg beater
1451 - onion chopper
2417 - energy recharging charger
1253 - random android needed to fill the team's empty spots
6271 - orgasm inducer
4210 - widow keeper

2884 - triathlon runner
3001 - computer spammer
6783 - spam computer
1728 - milk-making coffee grinder
4444 - dummy killer
6748 - Doomsday preacher
7481 - mathematical algorithm calculator

3910 - random joke maker
7188 - poached egg maker
0009 - really old machine
4301 - time stamp approval eraser
1101 - picture taker

2580 - telephone call disconnector

You're more than welcome to try writing a match report, but more than likely it's going to end up chaotic, especially if the match is played in Allemenschen. On that remark, you're more than welcome to write about anything, as long as you are willing not to retcon anything that happens in the course of one season, up to and including killing a player (or an android, or purple-stinging nellie, or whatever).

That said, the official venue for football matches is a weird purple-silk stadium that the purple-stinging nellies built in the wake of Allemenschen hosting a horrible rendition of the CoH37. Its capacity is supposedly 80,000, but we've never managed to get 80,000 people to fit inside (foreigners are afraid of the purple-stinging nellies that apparently breed in the swamp next door). If your fans are braver, perhaps you can break the old record of 100 players and staff, and maybe 15 random people who managed to get lost. Of course, you'll have to brave the airport (which has since the arrival of some garbagemen fallen into severe disrepair, not that anyone's used the airport in over 50 years). On that account, your safest bet is to try getting one of Allemenschen's neighbors to host the occasion for your appearance; we won't mind it at all. Besides, it's a perfect opportunity to have purple-stinging nellies on a plane!

*mumbles about getting some photoshopped pictures of purple-stinging nellies on a plane*

Ads to your right. But don't look. Just look down. My roster is there, enjoy!
06-05-2009, 14:17
It's that time already? World Cup forty six huh? Excellent.

The PFA is proud to announce the squad for this, our third, Football World Cup. It is a strong squad with a lot of World Cup experience. Nothing whacky or zanny this time, although there are rumours of dogs playing in WC52 onwards. Alas!

The Roster.
Initial starters in bold.

#1: Ektor Athanasiadis, Age: 20. (Angelos) WC44, DBC8, WC45, DBC9.
#17: Dorian Theotokis, Age: 31. (Olympiacos Utd) WC44, WC45.
#23: Andreas Mavromichalis, Age: 21. (Ephesum River) DBC8, DBC9.

Calisto Pappas has been ruled out with a shoulder injury, which gives Andreas Mavromichalis his first World Cup run, having played in the last two Di Bradini Cups.

#2: Narcissus Theodore, Age: 27. (BobBank FC, Quintessence of Dust) WC44, WC45.
#3: Luke Sisinis, Age: 24. (Olympia City) WC44, DB8, WC45.
#4: George Christakis-Zografos, Age: 23. (Thessalonia) DB8, WC45.
#6: Nikos Maximos, Age: 18. (Delphi Utd) DBC8, WC45, DB9.
#12: Alexander Maximos, Age: 18. (Delphi F.C.) DBC8, DBC9.
#14: Briareus Nino, Age: 19. (Therpian)
#18: Luke Erasmus, Age: 22. (Cheonjin, Daehanjeiguk) WC44, DBC8, WC45, DBC9.
#21: Terry Roubanis, Age: 25. (Porto Lacruz, Cafundeu) WC44, WC45.

Kallias Manos has been dropped from the squad due to a run in with police at a night club in Olympia. This opens the door for the second Maximos twin, Alexander, to make his debut appearance at the top level. Also, following the Empire Charity Cup, Hyakinthos Bion has retired. The 33 yr old's spot has been taken by unknown 19 yr old Briareus Nino, who was in the Charity Cup squad but didn't figure.

#5: Urias Halkias, Age: 32. (Olympiacos Utd) WC44, WC45. *Captain.
#7: Zoelle Cornelius, Age: 17. (Delphinite) DBC9.
#8: Athanasios Krestenitis, Age: 24. (Serrano, Cafundeu) DB8, WC45.
#10: Demetrius Zurlo, Age:28. (Delphinite)
#15: Petros Zaimis, Age: 19. (Wunnam, Daehanjeiguk) DBC8, WC45, DBC9.
#20: Praxis Nikolaidis, Age: 21. (Shimyang, Daehanjeiguk) WC44, DBC8, WC45, DBC9.
#19: Paris Sisinis, Age: 26. (Olympia City) WC44. WC45.
#16: Apollodoros Notara, Age: 28. (Olympia City) WC44, WC45.

Urias Halkias has announced this will be his last international tournament. Zarek Chatzi has been dropped due to poor form. His vacant spot is taken by youngster Zoelle Cornelius. Adeipho Fotilas is the second retirement from the WC45 squad and is replaced by Demetrius Zurlo.

#9: Costa Theotokis, Age: 26. (Olympiacos Utd) WC44, WC45.*Vice-captain
#11: George Theotokis, Age: 26. (River Nektar) WC44, WC45.
#13: Lefteris Diakos, Age: 21. (BobBank FC, Quintessence of Dust) WC44, DBC8, WC45, DBC9.
#22: Odysseas Adraktas, Age: 18. (Internacional de Penderia, Cafundeu) DBC8, WC45, DBC9.

All four strikers return from WC45 with Lefteris Diakos in hot form. He will really push George for a starting spot.

Coach/manager: Alexander Pappas.
Assistant coach: John Voskopoulos.
Attacking assistant: Adras Trakas
Defence assistant: Alketas Alketas
Goalkeeping assistant: Eleftherios Deligeorgis
Physio: Halithersis Tripoli

Just two changes in the management team that looked after the 45 squad, with physio William Pipinelis now a builder and attacking coach David Roufos retiring. Halithersis Tripoli is the new physio, with Adras Trakas stepping in to the attacking assistant role.

Peisandros has four international stadiums and all will be used in our five home games.
National Sports Arena, Olympia. Capacity: 71,350. For MD2 & MD10.
Peisandros Basin, Delphi. Capacity: 44,900. For MD1.
People of Ephesum Stadium, Ephesum. Capacity: 66,500. For MD4.
ATI Stadium, Thasos. Capacity: 59,800. For MD8.


Thanks to Star.

Peisandros has in the past been a heavily defensive side where defenders were looked upon as greats of the game and strikers given little time. But with the young fresh talent up front this has changed considerably in the past two years. They well line up in the usual 4-4-2, with the option of going 5-3-2-1. As such the Sandrians come to this World Cup with an attacking nature, and modify at +2.4. A huge increase on the last two World Cups.

Jaime Kuu (Starblaydia)
Age: 43
After a great run with the DBC team and an impeccable season with Raynor City United, Kuu was selected at the halfway stage of Qualifying for WC45 after the side had continued troubles with lesser foes under Orophin. Kuu likes to emphasize the use of the wings and a duo of sturdy midfield players to hold up the opposition.

Assistant Manager

Nienna Lossëhelin
Age - 12,393
Her fiestiness continues to spread among the players and get them in the mindset needed to take the game the way it was intended to be. Her passion alone willed them in that third place game, and should be enough to keep them going into another long run.


1 Amarian Tinehtelë, Ourseville 1093 (Septentronia) ~
Age - 812
Sex - M
Height: 6'2"
Weight: 171 lbs
Like many of the Marauders, last tournament was just not a good showing for Amarian, and he looks to rebound with a spectacular showing given the chance. His reflexes have gotten better, and so has his distribution of the ball.


32 Angrod Minyatur, Ammites FE (Vephrall)
Age - 649
Sex - M
Height: 6'1"
Weight: 167 lbs
His size and speed have made him a one of the best players in Vephrall for nearly a decade, but many thought he wouldn't hack it as a starter for the side. He dispelled that thought with many grade A performances the last three tournaments.

12 Dwier Titenburg Jr, FC Capri
Age - 403
Sex - M
Height: 6'3"
Weight: 162 lbs
Despite his tender age, he is undoubtedly the heart and soul of the entire defensive side of the equation. He leads by example and through words of wisdom that an elf his age does not often show. He has proven to be very much his father's son and then some.

37 Hizzen Hocn, Cafundó do Juta (Cafundeu)
Age - 639
Sex - M
Height: 6'0"
Weight: 165 lbs
Calm, collected, tested, mature, and just a plain great footballer that can line it up with the best of them on any day. Probably the most skilled of the three defenders, but also the most quiet and with the smallest ego. Never one to let his emotions get the better of him, and his play has demonstrated that, with his number of yellows and reds being minuscule compared to the other defenders.


24 Espy va Drake, Green Island (Candelaria and Marquez)
Age: 703
Sex - M
Height: 5'11"
Weight: 159 lbs
va Drake has slowly become something of a folklore hero of those obscure footballers and much of the country. His rise to prominence and amongst the best in the world at his craft has given them hope that they can do so as well. Green Island continues to be a miracle worker for the winger, as his finishing in front of goal has become demonstrative, making him a total player, great on either end of the pitch.

21 Aintôrthea Durosa, Green Island (Candelaria and Marquez)
Age - 714
Sex - F
Height: 5"10"
Weight: 144 lbs
Durosa is one of those players that can play just about any position, as her skill set is vast and adequate in multiple areas. She has started off well in the beginning of the CMSC season, nabbing a few goals, but looks to be playing more of a holding role on the national team, as compared to a winger or withdrawn striker with the GIZ. With her good knowledge of va Drake's typical playing patterns, the two could prove to be a devastating pair for the opposition to contain.

14 Laborious Hawk, Petardos S/A (Cafundeu)
Age - 667
Sex -M
Height: 6'5"
Weight: 213 lbs
Words do not even began to define his talent, his talent defines words. He was awarded one of the spots that the Vanorians have in the World Cup Hall of Fame, with it being very well deserved, as he has and continues to earn everything he has been given every single day.

19 Melfanosion Morose, Raynor City United
Age - 759
Sex - M
Height: 5'10"
Weight: 161 lbs
Morose continues to be a consistent attacking threat from out wide, with the ability to pinpoint crosses and send in his mates perfectly. A true lack of an defensive prowess is the only thing holding him back from becoming a star.

40 Faeron Soldarian, Raynor City United
Age - 581
Sex - M
Height: 6'1"
Weight: 163 lbs
His skill, his heritage, his heart, there is nothing about the eldest Soldarian son that you would not like. He wears his heart out on his sleeve, and is probably better for it, as he is the spiritual leader of the side. What Hawk might do for the mental state of the team, Scott equals that in getting for the spirits up. Add in to the fact that he is a world class midfielder, and he might be looking at becoming a hall of famer.


4 Ikles Razov, Petardos S/A (Cafundeu)
Age - 844
Sex - M
Height: 5"9"
Weight: 148 lbs
They say speed never falters, and with Razov, that continues to be the case. With his transfer to the giants of Petardos S/A, the star striker is getting even better competition week in and week out. Yet, he has to adept to yet another new striker partner on the national team, which could either be a blessing, or a hindrance as the Marauders look for title number four.

3 Ainion Zadora, Mylfe CE (Vephrall)
Age - 763
Sex - M
Height: 6'1"
Weight: 164 lbs
Some would say that this is well overdue, while others say that it is the wrong move. Whatever the case may be, Zadora has earned his way into the starting role, after being a super sub alongside Fresco for a multitude of tournaments. He's quick, but his true asset is the ability to strike well with either foot and a superb heading skills.

Home Stadium- Lighthouse Stadium in Port Adams. Capacity 36,000.

Style Modification- -4

I have bolded the starters for you. We play a 4-4-2.


1. Mamoru Miyamoto
25 years old. Starter. Acrobatic keeper ready to make a big impression. Very self-confident.

20. Keiji Yamada
27 years old. Relies on reflexes. Knows his role as a subsititute.

30. Saburo Hamasaki
32 year old reserve. Wishes the Island entered World Cup competition in his heyday.


2. Hideki Nakahara
The 23 year old patrols the left side. Great awareness for his age.

3. Raiden Tachibana (Captain)
Captain of the team. 29 years old and a fan favorite for his aggressive and physical style of play.

5. Naoki Ueda
Intelligent 27 year old. Plays in a conservative manner.

8. Tamotsu Nishimura
The 26 year old patrols the right side. He can get physical too.

22. Yasushi Sato
Teenage sensation, but the 18 year old will only be a sub this time.

23. Isamu Sato
Yasushi’s older brother by three years. Also a sub.

32. Michi Wakahisa
The 28 year old will be a reserve for now.


7. Sadao Yukimura
A 25 year old with a powerful leg. Will take most set pieces.

9. Shoichi Matsumoto
The 22 year old can do great things with the ball. A very exciting playmaker.

11. Takeshi Suzuki
Defensive midfielder, and the 27 year old doesn’t mind being rough and risking a booking.

12. Kazuhiko Fukiyama
Oldest starter on the team but the 34 year old can’t pass up this opportunity.

24. Masaaki Minami
The 26 year old will be a sub when a defensive midfielder is needed.

25. Atsushi Kagome
Sub when an offensive midfielder is needed. He is 25.

33. Fumio Kurosawa
Seventeen year old will get a feel for what this level is like in pracitce.


10. Daisuke Oshiro
24 year old playmaker. He will set up more goals then he scores.

15. Hideaki Matsushita
The 27 year old should be the leading scorer of the team.

26. Katsuo Matsushita
Hideaki’s brother is three years younger and will probably see action in many games.

27. Manabu Fujiwara
The 21 year old has amazing speed and skill but lacks stamina. He is a sub.

34. Takayuki Yamamoto
A 33 year old veteran has a great shot still.


Kei Watanabe
He’s 48 years of age and a former defender and usually mild mannered. He will lead the team to battle.

Koji Nomo
At 66, Nomo has been through a lot and now gets to be the assistant coach. He retired two years ago but comes out of it for this chance.
Bears Armed
07-05-2009, 15:37
Team: ‘Bears Armed’,
alias "the Bear-Belles".

Yes, this is still an all-female team. As I’ve explained before, this is because the main ball-game that's traditionally been played in Bears Armed is actually a form of Rugby, but [for several reasons] the professional league for that sport is all-male and so some of the female players decided that switching to Soccer instead -- and trying to establish a professional league for that -- might be a viable alternative: That professional league was founded shortly after WC44, and so has now been in operation for about five years.

National football organisation: ‘Bears Armed Association for Soccer’ (= ‘BAAS’).
(Chairbear: Urra-Harrlo o Westfells [Chairbear of Wiston Wanderers S.C.])
National anthem: ‘Peace’.

Home ground = 'Plumtrees Park', at Council Groves (our capital city). Its capacity was doubled after the qualifiers for WC44, to roughly 40'000 for Ursines: Fitting about 30’000 humans into the visiting fans' half should be possible, and so that's as many as we'll let into the country. Accommodation for visiting teams & their staffs will be provided in the 'Hotel Exodus', about a mile away, which is used to housing Human visitors. Accommodation (at a fairly basic level) for up to 15’000 supporters will be available, at reasonable prices, in students' residences for the adjacent National University: if more foreigners than that want to attend any particular game then there’s limited hotel space available — say 1’000 to 1’500 places — but otherwise they’ll have to borrow space in the nearby Army camp instead...
There are still no direct inter-regional flights into Council Groves, so that visitors will have to travel by way of one of our neighbours and then continue onwards by one of the limited number of "local" air-flights or by rail. (People planning to arrive by rail will still have to travel via the nation of Mikitivity, but extra services will be organised on that route...)

Manager: Arri Thunder (Robert [‘Bob’] Henry Smith, a male Human, aged 50; originally from the Ursine Protectorate of Old Ceorana ( but now a national of Bears Armed as an adopted member of ‘Clan Gunnar’.)

Chief Coach: Marra SunDaughter ( female Ursine, a member of the ‘Sun Clan’; played in BoF31 & WC44, as the usual starter at ‘Left Forward’ and the team’s Captain, scoring a good proportion of the Belles’ goals’, and was also captain of her home team the 'Sun Valley Smashers', but subsequently had to retire from active play due to a crippling injury to her right leg; involved in coaching her home team since then, and ‘Deputy Chief Coach for the national team during WC45; Soccer experience =10 years as a player, now in her 5th year as a full-time coach; age = 35, left-pawed, fur = golden-brown, good eyesight even by human [rather than Ursine] standards. )

Deputy Coaches _
(Offensive): Harrya o Herrchaum _ Clan = Herrchaum; age = 40, left-pawed, fur = light brown... Having already proven herself as both a Midfielder & a Striker for the ’Mighty Redwoods, she was another of the Belles’ original recruits, originally as “#24”; she saw action on several occasions during BoF31 & WC44, mainly as a Striker but sometimes as a Midfielder instead, and was promoted to a place amongst the national team’s usual ‘starting’ Midfielders — as “#6”, normally at ‘Midfield Right’ — for WC45. Her skills and experience had almost earned her the job of ‘First Deputy Coach’ for the Belles for the latter tournament, but then Marra SunDaughter (with whom she’s still friends) had to retire from the field due to lasting effects of a leg injury and was given it instead. Harrya herself retired from playing after WC45, to start a family, but was quite soon persuaded to use her Soccer experience (now 18 years) as the manager & chief coach of the nation’s ‘Under-21’ team for DBC9 (with an important role in promoting Soccer amongst the country’s young women in general) as well as — slightly more recently — to take this job too.

(Defensive): Charra o Barrdenn _ Clan = GreenWoods; age = 33; left-pawed, fur = medium brown, noted for her long reach... She was the Belles’ main goalkeeper in BoF31 & WC44, and shared that role in WC45, while spending the domestic Soccer season as main goalkeeper for the 'Barrdenn Barbariennes; She is now the main Coach for the latter team, and has 12 years experience of Soccer as either player or coach.

For one reason and another, Bears Armed’s national team has undergone significantly more changes in membership since WC45 than it did between WC44 & WC45.
As far as BA is concerned, World Cups are now happening at 4-year intervals and (from an IC viewpoint)have always done so, which means that for the Bears this tournament is starting (IC) in 2017AD. The ages and experience for the returning players have been adjusted appropriately, and will be increased again if & when appropriate during this competition…
All of the players are actual Ursines (i.e. anthropomorpic, bipedal Bears), unless I actually specify otherwise in their individual descriptions here. However there are also three [female] members of the Harr'aynau people, who are physically human (more-or-less, anyway, although inclined towards heavy builds & hairyness) but spiritually & culturally Ursine, and one from the population's Vulpine minority as well.


(#1) Urra Thunder _ Clan = Gunnar, home team = 'Barrdenn Barbariennes', category & usual position = Goalkeeper, Soccer experience = 11 years; age = 28, right-pawed, fur = medium brown.
(#14) Iritti o OldWood _ Clan = Redwood, home team = 'Mighty Redwoods', category & usual position = Goalkeeper, Soccer experience = 11 years; age = 29, left-pawed, fur = medium-brown with greyish highlights; quite large, with a long reach…
(#33) Marra Riverfarer _ Clan = Zarruorr, home team = 'Allemali University’ / ‘Candelaria-Allemali’ (‘Candelaria And Marquez’), category & usual position = Goalkeeper, 8 years experience of Soccer; Harr’aynau humanoid; age = 20, right-footed, hair = deep red; studying ‘Economics & Business Administration’. (She entered international football in DBC9.)

(#2) Urratharra o Strongpaw _ Clan = March, home team = ‘Mighty Marchers’, category = Defender, usual position = Left Back, Soccer experience = 11 years; age = 29, right-pawed, fur = dark-medium brown.
(#3) Borrinna o HighPeaks _ Clan = Redwood, home team = ‘Ashdom City’ (‘Nethertopia’), category = Defender, usual position = Right Back, Soccer experience = 15 years; age = 28, left-pawed, fur = light-medium brown & quite long.
(#15) Sarrla o Jherrarn _ Clan = Jherran Habbar, home team = Merlchester Rovers, Soccer experience = 11 years, category = Defender, preferred position = Right Back; age = 27, left-pawed, fur = reddish-brown;.
(#16) Beorra o SouthWoods _ Clan = WestWoods, home team = Wiston United, Soccer experience = 8 years, category = Defender, preferred position = Left Back; age = 29, left-pawed, fur = medium brown.
(#26) Lurra White _ Clan = WestWoods, home team = ‘FC Drongosnort’ (‘Quintessence of Dust’), Soccer experience= 6 years, category = Defender, preferred position = Right Back; age =26, right-pawed, fur = very light brown.
(#35) Marraya RedRose _ Clan = RedRose [‘Free Sept’], home team = 'Mighty Redwoods’ [junior side], category = Defender, preferred position = Right Back, 5 years experience of Soccer; age = 16, left-pawed, fur = medium brown with reddish tint; relatively small, but strong and quite fast. (She entered international football in DBC9.)
(#36) Sunnarra o Redwood _ Clan = Redwood, home team = 'The Citadel', category = Defender, preferred position = Centre Back or Left Back, 4 years experience of Soccer; age = 16, right-pawed, fur = light brown; quite fast; studying Military Science. (She entered international football in DBC9.)

(#4) Urra ‘Honey’ SunBlessed _ Clan = Sun, home team = ‘Sun Valley Smashers’, category = Midfielder/Defender, usual position = Defensive Centre, Soccer experience = 12 years; age = 29, right-pawed, fur = ‘honey-brown’, very good eyesight even by human (rather than Ursine) standards. She is a very accurate kicker, and therefore the usual first choice for taking free kicks & penalties; her nickname comes from her fur-colour, her very sweet nature, and (it must be admitted) the fact that she's a bit thick.

(#5) Marra-Urra o Redwood _ Clan = Redwood, home team = 'Mighty Redwoods', category = Midfielder, usual position = Midfield Left, Soccer experience = 11 years; age = 31, left-pawed, fur = medium brown.
(#6) Ilga NorthWalker _ Clan = WildWoods, home team = ‘Cathedral City’ (‘Candelaria And Marquez’), Soccer experience = 10 years (the last 5 of them in foreign & mostly-human leagues) , category = Midfielder/Striker, preferred position = Right Forward or Midfield Right, default position here = Midfield Right; a member of the ’Harr’aynau’ people (OOC: i.e. humanoid, at least physically, rather than Ursine…), age = 28, right-footed, red-haired.
(#17) Karra Thunder _ Clan = Gunnar, home team = PassPort Athletic, Soccer experience = 11 years, category = Midfielder, preferred position = Midfield Left; age = 26, left-pawed, fur = dark brown.
(#20) Zargie o Harruor _ Clan = Harruor Erruur, home team = 'LakePort Lionesses', Soccer experience = 11 years, category = Midfielder, preferred position = Midfield Centre; age = 28 years, right-pawed, fur = dark brown.
(#21) Sunnanna o WestFells _ Clan = WestWoods, home team = ‘Wiston Wanderers’, category = Midfielder/Defender, preferred position = Midfield Left or Defensive Centre, Soccer experience = 9 years; age = 26, right-pawed.
(#31) Elga ‘the Leopardess’ Lightning _ Clan = Gunnar, home team = ‘PassPort Athletic’, category = Midfielder/Forward, preferred position = Midfield Centre or Midfield Right or Right Forward, default position here = Midfield Right, Soccer experience = 6 years; age = 17, right-pawed, fur = light brown; very keen eyesight, not as heavily built as most other Ursines, very agile & quite fast on her feet. (She entered international football in DBC9.)
(#34) Marwerna ar Gerran _ Clan = Arttorran, home team = ‘Stoedtcanal CU’ (‘Nethertopia’ ), category = Midfielder, usual position = Midifeld Right, 5 years experience of Soccer; age = 17, right-pawed, fur = light brown; not as heavily built as most other Ursines, very fast on her feet, has good eyesight. (She entered international football in DBC9.)

(#7) Beorranna o Dawn _ Clan = Urrset, home team = ‘Sun Valley Smashers’, category = Striker/Winger, preferred position = Left Forward, Soccer experience = 11 years; age = 28, right-pawed, fur = light brown with a red tinge.
(#10) Harroya ‘of the Rovers’ o Redwood _ Clan = Redwood, home team = Merlchester Rovers, category = Striker, usual position = Centre Forward, the team’s CAPTAIN, Soccer experience = 14 years (she was already the Belles’ Captain for WC45); age = 30, left-pawed, fur = light brown; she will NOT break the rules (not even at the 'yellow card' level), managing to be an "attacking" player without being an "aggressive" one... Good at setting up goals for her team-mates, but only seems to score them herself when the team really NEEDS those goals. (British players of reasonable age may be able to recognise the [male, human, fictional] inspiration for this character... ;))
(#11) Karramarsar Sarra _ Clan = Ostbora, home team = 'Victories of Vichr', category = Striker/Winger, usual position = either Right Forward or Right Winger, Soccer experience = 14 years; age = 29, right-pawed, fur = medium brown & fairly long. She is the identical twin sister of Karramarsar Karra, #13, with whom she has a close mental rapport that’s very useful for teamwork.
(#13) Karramarsar Karra _ Clan = Ostbora, home team = 'Victories of Vichr', category = Striker/Winger, usual position = either Right Forward or Right Winger, Soccer experience = 14 years; age = 29, right-pawed, fur = medium brown & fairly long. She is the identical twin sister of Karramarsar Sarra, #11.
(#23) Urrarla o Borrovtsa _ Clan = Ostbora, home team = ‘Wahrriagh Krasny’, Soccer experience = 11 years, category = Striker, preferred position = Right Forward; age = 29, left-pawed, fur = light brown.
(#24) Urratharra o LakeWoods _ Clan= GreenWoods, home team = ‘Barrdenn Barbariennes’, category = Striker, preferred position = Left Forward, Soccer experience = 8 years; age =26, left-pawed, fur = medium-brown with hints of red.
(#26) Theodelphia Karramarsar _ Clan = Ostbora, home team = ‘Urrvan’s Avengers’, category = Striker, preferred position = Right Forward, Soccer experience = 12 years; age = 33, right-pawed, fur = light brown; Christian (Eastern Orthodox).
(#32) Marra o GoldenDale _ clan = GreenRiver, home team = ‘Kingly City’, category = Striker, preferred position = Right Forward, Soccer experience = 9 years; age = 30, left-pawed, fur = medium-brown.

(#12) Ulga WestWalker _ Clan = WildWoods), home team = ‘Yuki City Athletic’ (‘Dancougar’), category = Winger or Midfielder, usual position = either Left Winger or Midfield Left, Soccer experience = 16 years (with 7 out of the last 8 of these being in foreign leagues); from the Harr’ayanau people (OOC: i.e. humanoid, at least physically, rather than Ursine…), age = 33, right-footed, red-haired, very fast on her feet.
(#27) Harroya ‘She-Lion’ Lightning _ Clan = Gunnar, home team = 'LakePort Lionesses', category = Winger, preferred position = Left Winger, Soccer experience = 12 years; age = 28, left-pawed, fur = light brown.
(#30) Medrarna Serrnarra’s-daughter _ Clan = Verravokssur (Free Sept), home team = 'Vasrrorgrath Valkyrrs', category = Winger, preferred position = Right Winger, Soccer experience = 7 years ; a member of the ‘Verravokkssur’ people (who are anthropomorphic foxes… that’s as in LARGE anthropomorphic foxes, she’s 6’1” tall…), age = 26, ambidextrous, fur = orange-red, very fast on her feet. She joined the team for WC45, replacing her older sister ‘Verrina’ who was probably a slightly better player — at least back then — but who had a serious attitude problem.
(#37) Errmintrra o RedSun _ Clan = Red Sun (Free Sept), home team = ‘NorthPort Navigators’, category = Winger or Striker, preferred position = Right Winger, Soccer experience = 4 years; age = 20 years, right-pawed, fur = light reddish-brown, eyesight = good. (She is new to the team, and is its first ever recruit from within the ‘Northlands League’…)

Style: Offensive, modifier = +4… "A good offence is the best defence"...
Their usual formation will include a front row of at least 5 (normally as 3 strikers & 2 wingers), with 2 midfielders, 2 backs, and either a ‘Defensive Centre’ (whose starting position would be at the midpoint of an imaginary cross drawn between those other four non-forwards’ positions) or a third midfielder depending on the Manager’s decision before each match.

Usual starters = #1-7, 10-13;
Usual substitutes = #14 , 16, 17, 20 (home) or 21 (away), 23, 26, 27.


Opponents may _

Choose my goalscorers: Y (but the Strikers, and then the Wingers, are likeliest to fill this role...)
Godmod Scoring Events: Y

RP injuries to my players / Godmod injuries to my players / Hand out Yellow cards to my players / Hand out Red cards to my players: Y to all, at least to start with, but remember what I've written here and keep it in limits accordingly... Any serious offences by my players would probably result in injuries to your players, and causing any serious injuries to my players would probably require such obviously-deliberate attacks that your players would get yellow or even red cards as a result too.

Godmod Other Events: Y, I suppose, at least as long as you do so in an AMUSING way... but please remember that Ursines are fully sapient beings, as much as Humans are (well, almost so, anyway....), NOT instinct-driven animals. Oh, and of course female Ursines are NOT sexually interested in Humans (of either sex), and it's very unlikely that female Harr'ayanau would be either. Please don't have them run amok or outright revert to animality, without checking by TG first, don't make assumptions about their views on politics or religion, and don't do anything that would make more than one of them incapable of playing in their next game...


Kit (home) = lime-green shirts with bear's-paw emblem (as on the national flag) in pale brown on both front & back; pale brown shorts, with trimming & side-stripes in bands of black, gray & white (representing the other Ursine stocks...); socks = lime-green.
Kit ('away') = white, with emerald-green (or what Icall 'emerald-green', which seems to be a rather darker shade than some other people do, anyway...) bear's-paw emblem & trimming.
Kit (goalkeepers) = emerald-green, with the bear's-paw emblem in white.

Identifying numbers will be in black, except on the goalkeeper's emerald-green where they'll be in white instead: Bears Armed has traditionally used base-8 arithmetic, for several reasons, (so the sequence used here will be: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 20, 21, etc...), and the number “22” has deliberately been left unassigned out of respect for its first [& only] wearer who died a heroine’s death a year or so after WC444…
You can get some idea of what the kit looks like here (, although those designs currently use a lighter green than we meant the term 'emerald' to cover and lack the black/gray/white side-stripes & trimming on the shorts...


Ursines may tend to be a bit less agile & slower to accelerate than humans on average, but this team's members were carefully selected so the gap between them & their opponents in this respect should be narrower than some people might expect. They do tend to have slightly poorer eyesight than humans, on the whole (although the members of 'Clan Gunnar' and the 'Sun Clan' are generally exceptions to this rule and the latter group actually tend to have eyesight at better-than-human levels instead), so long-distance passes & shots at goal will tend to be rarer behaviour for them than they are for human teams... but their typical size & strength mean that when they're running with the ball it will probably take a very brave human -- as well as a very skilled one -- to tackle them successfully, which should balance that factor pretty well. They don’t jump very well, but then they’re generally rather taller than most Human players to start with.
Ursines have slightly lower life-expectancies than Humans, on average, but tend to retain more of their vigour for a longer proportion of this so that players in their 30s -- and even their 40s -- are often just as physically capable as those in their 20s...
They're physically robust, of course, which means that they're much less likely than humans to suffer injuries in falls or collisions. They’ve now been playing Soccer rather than Rugby for long enough that there should no longer be any risk of any of them (No, not even ‘Honey’...) forgetting about the differences between these two games’ rules. The females of this species are more even-tempered than the males, and the team's members will try to stay on their best behaviour not only in order to do well in this contest (which would help to ensure that their domestic Soccer league becomes popular enough to continue for very long) but also to impress upon the watching humans that Ursines aren't just "dumb beasts". They will not 'dive', or feign injury in other ways, because suggesting that they could be harmed so easily goes strongly against the grain.
Cold weather should pose no problem to them, even if there's snow or ice on the pitch, but tropical heat might prove awkward...

At their 'home' games, and at their 'away' ones too unless their hosts there object, the team's members — including the designated substitutes for that match — will perform a [fairly short] ritual that's called the 'harrdiharr' ( on the pitch just before play begins... This is a traditional war-dance, meant to over-awe opponents, that has come to be a customary prelude for team games as well (similar to the [RL] New Zealanders' 'haka'...). ;)

As has been seen (and heard!) during previous competitions, some of our fans like to take drums (and possibly also cow-horns, or other "musical instruments", too) along to the matches...
The Bear Islands
07-05-2009, 17:13
The Bear Islands are sending the same team that they sent to AOCAF26 and BoF33.

All of this team's members are Ursines, and are basically similar to those of 'Bears Armed' although not quite as heavily built (and therefore a bit more manoeuverable) on average: however they typically have eyesight at closer to normal 'human' levels than do those other Ursines. In most cases their fur is some shade of reddish-brown.

None of them speak any languages apart from 'Ursine', but they have brought a 'kindness' of [sapient] Ravens along as interpreters.

They are from a low-tech culture: Think of this as being along similar general lines to those of the 'Eastern Woodland' or 'NW Coast' Native Americans, or maybe Maori (or other Polynesians), as I'm borrowing elements from those cultures for theirs...


Nation: ‘The Bear Islands’.
3-letter code: ‘YRU’.
Team nickname: 'the Braves'.

National Soccer Organisation: None as such, because the ‘Team Chief’ (i.e. ‘Manager’) reports directly to the national government.
Home pitch: South Beach (This is only useable around low tide, which will affect the timing of their ‘home’ games…).
Anthem: ‘We Are Best’.

Team Chief [i](= Manager): Listens-To-Parrots.
Medicine Man (= Doctor & Chaplain): Red Owl.
Physio: Moonshine (female).

They favour an attacking style (+3).

Their players will precede each match by performing a traditional war-dance, the 'harrdiharr', although their version of this is quite different from the one favoured by teams from 'Bears Armed'.
Their fans have drums, horns, and other noise-makers.


This is the team’s starting line-up, until further notice _


Stands-Like-Oak (very tall, so that the ball’s unlikely to go over him & still be inside the net; good at reaching out to the sides without moving his feet much, too, although he can move around — and do so very well — if it’s really necessary…)


Left: Stone Turtle
Centre: Turtle-Blue-Twin (actually a pair of identical twins, legally a single person under this nation’s own rules, who will generally remain close together and function as a single player…)
Right: Wide Boy

Defensive Midfielders

Left: Running Joke (seems to be as good at running sideways, or even backwards, as he is at running forwards… and is very likely to do so..)
Right: Leaping Walrus (wonderful moustache!)

Offensive Midfielders

Left: Mighty-Like-A-Rose ('Game Chief', i.e. Captain)
Right: Harefoot (the team’s fastest runner)

(Left to right…)

Running Bare (plays in minimal loin-cloth)
Head-in-Air (very tall, which is relevant for headers and high shots…)
Thunderbolt (takes kick-offs, and most ‘set pieces’)

(They are all Ursines, and all males. Their identifying numbers will be re-assigned before each match, on a complicated basis that I’m not going to explain here but might get around to describing in RP at some point…)


Goalkeeper: Son-of-The-Moon
Defenders/Defensive Midfielders: None-Shall-Pass (big and strong, but surprisingly agile for his size too)
Midfielder (Defensive/Offensive): Floats-Like-Butterfly
Midfielder (Offensive)/Offender: Stings-Like-Bee (non-identical twin of ‘Floats-Like-Butterfly’)
Offenders: White Lightning (another very fast runner; half-brother of ‘Moonshine’, the Physio…), Hears-Strange-Ghosts (claims to be advised by spirits whom the team’s other members — and their nation’s specialists in such matters — can’t detect…).

Are they bringing any ‘reserves’ along, tool?
Maybe, but if so then these haven’t been publicly named yet… because to that would be implying that they will actually need these which would be inviting bad luck.


Kit: The team plays in a variant of their normal clothing, rather than in a more ‘conventional’ kit. This consists of a ’churra’ (a sort of short poncho, that doesn’t extend far down the arms) in a red-&-black chequered pattern, held in place by a belt around the waist, with a leather breech-clout under this. They will play bare-footed, unless the organisers forbid this.


If my opponent RPs first then
My opponent, if they RP first, may do the following:

Glossary—modern terminology

Capitalizt SLANI: a sporting association based in Paripana — “Capitalizt SLANI won over Busby 3–1”
Commerce Heights: (see also OOC terminology below) a city in Paripana
Jasīʼyūn: (alternatively Jaseuyeon or Ch’asŭyŏn) a sporting association based in Paripana — “Jasīʼyūn win”
Paripana: a geographic area in Atlantian Oceania, where (along with Demot) World Cup 45 will be held — “We wanted to take a trip to Paripana, but we left our gold certificates at home and missed our flight”
Unified Capitalizt States: a government which has ceased operations, but the name of which is still used in comparison to other political entities — “The UCS is bigger, and less surrender-inclined, than Septentrionia”

(When in doubt whether to use Paripana or Unified Capitalizt States, people from Paripana are more inclined to use the former, and “foreigners” are probably more inclined to use the latter.)

Glossary—OOC terminology

Commerce Heights: an OOC person
New Manhattan: a forum account used by that person due to technical issues

Glossary—historical terminology

CHFF: football association that preceded Capitalizt SLANI
Commerce Heights: 1. name of the UCS prior to the World Cup 15 semifinals, 2. name of the Capitalizt SLANI team during WC25–29, 3. name of the CHFF team
Unified Capitalizt States: a political entity


Paripana is a very large, very rich region of Atlantian Oceania. It is a stateless society; disputes are resolved without recourse to violence. Many future technologies have been developed in the region, including teleporters, spaceships, and extremely tall buildings, though many such technologies are too expensive for the general population.

Capitalizt SLANI (abbreviated SLANI or, as a three-letter code, COM) is the better-known of the two sporting associations in Paripana that participate in the World Cup. It was founded during World Cup 25 when the prior association, the CHFF, went bankrupt, and is universally recognized as inheriting the CHFF’s history, including its World Cup 15 title. SLANI also claims the history of the Bedistan Football Association, including its World Cup 21, 26, 27, and 30 titles, but most authorities do not recognize this.

Jasīʼyūn (three-letter code JSY) is the lesser-known association, and began international play beginning in World Cup 30. It has done nothing of note.


The following stadia will be used by both SLANI and Jasīʼyūn for home qualifying matches.

Barring exceptional circumstances, all home games played by either Paripanan team will sell out, and as many fans as are permitted will travel for away games.

Quality ratings for each of the venues are given. Keep in mind that a two-star stadium by Paripanan standards would likely be a UEFA ‘Elite’ stadium ( IRL.

Sokojito Überdome
City: Sokojito Dosi
Capacity: 400 552
Quality: ★★★★
Covered: transparent dome
Club teams: Sokojito Dosi Gyūlhabdwen (Élite League One), Sokojito Dosi Dalamjwijī (Élite League One)
Built for the infamous “CHO:P” World Cup 26 bid, the Sokojito Überdome is the largest football stadium in Atlantian Oceania. To allow for its massive capacity, teleportation devices are used to get spectators into their seats, which are inaccessible by other means. Aside from the final of World Cup 26, the Überdome has hosted several matches between Capitalizt SLANI and Krytenia (and is due to host another), which have earned the stadium a reputation for very high-scoring games. It was used for domestic cup finals before the completion of Holmes Stadium, but its big event is now the Sokojito derby, with Gyūlhabdwen and Dalamjwijī now both competitive in the hunt for TakilQuip Champions’ Cup qualification.

Holmes Stadium
City: Columbia
Capacity: 390 100
Quality: ★★★★★
Covered: seats only
The original Holmes Stadium was the early home of the Bedistani national team, and hosted the final of World Cup 8, in which the home team, the first host nation to reach a World Cup final, were defeated 3–1 by Liverpool England. The stadium was destroyed in the first invasion of Bedistan by Tingitanan anarchists, but has been rebuilt with a far greater capacity, while attempting to replicate the original stadium’s design. The new stadium hosted Capitalizt SLANI’s thrashing of Milchama in the World Cup 39 final, and is the only stadium to host three World Cup finals, surpassing Sen-La-Sa͜o Relekhati. It also hosted the Games of the III Olympiad and the first two TakilQuip Champions’ Cup finals.

Metropolitan Stadium
City: Commerce Heights
Capacity: 180 278
Quality: ★★★★
Covered: seats only
Metropolitan Stadium, one of the new venues constructed for World Cup 36, was built on the site of Maxisoft Stadium, the original home stadium of the CHFF, and serves as a replacement for the demolished CDA Stadium in New Seoul. The famed Panthers played some matches here during 2147–49 due to the rebuilding of Anaphase Alchemy Stadium. The venue is the home of the Van Prooijen University gridiron team.

Anaphase Alchemy Stadium
City: Sonoma Center
Capacity: 171 337
Quality: ★★★★★
Covered: transparent dome
Club team: Sonoma Center Panthers (Élite League One)
After over eight hundred consecutive sellouts at the old ground, the Sonoma Center Panthers board finally gave in to financial pressure and decided to rebuild the stadium, with more than double the capacity (though they did not give in to Septentrionian pressure to rename the club “Sonoma Centre”). A transparent roof covers the stadium, blocking out heat that would otherwise be absorbed by the all-black structure; this was reportedly cheaper than getting enough paint in the precise color of blue to match the team’s long-standing kit colors. The stadium is repeatedly a contender to host the TakilQuip Champions’ Cup final; however, it has so far been limited to hosting the home leg of the Panthers’ semifinal appearances.

Sokojiʼwa Gyūŋgijaŋ
City: Sokojiʼwa Dosi
Capacity: 169 500
Quality: ★★★★
Covered: opaque dome
Club team: Sokojiʼwa Dosi CK (Élite League One)
Sokojiʼwa Gyūŋgijaŋ was built by the Élite League club Sokojiʼwa Dosi CK, the first club in the league to construct a new stadium without outside funding. The stadium is the only of its size in Sokojiʼwa, and has raised the profile of the Syokaji club, building towards the board’s goal of gaining a reputation on par with the traditional giants of Yuba and Sonoma Center. The club submitted a bid to host the TakilQuip Champions’ Cup final at the stadium, but was ultimately rejected.

Querzakhi Olympic Stadium
City: Querzakhi
Capacity: 157 080
Quality: ★★★★★
Covered: retractable transparent roof
Club team: Querzakhi United (Élite League One)
Querzakhi Olympic Stadium was built by the Spaamanian corporation Drakcorp for the Capitalizt club, Querzakhi United, that it purchased. It hosted the ceremonies and many of the events for the Games of the II Olympiad. Though the stadium has been around for about eighty years, it was extensively renovated for the Olympics. It has some of the same advanced features as Capitalizm, and additionally has the ability to replace the pitch instantaneously by teleporting replacement pitches that are stored underground.

Stádie Montánire
City: High Mountain
Capacity: 141 421
Quality: ★★★★
Covered: retractable opaque roof
Club team: High Mountain Buffalo (Élite League One)
Stádie Montánire was funded by the Capitalizt Élite League, like Bætica Stadium, as part of its plan to improve the league’s standing. It is, in fact, built on Mount Hendricks, the “high mountain” for which the city is named. The stadium is built with a retractable roof and, though the Buffalo use the high altitude to their advantage in club fixtures, the building is pressurized for international matches.

City: Metrewalk
Capacity: 131 160
Quality: ★★★★★
Covered: opaque ceiling
Club team: SV Metrewalk (Capitalizt SLANI League First Division)
C4Stadion, designed by the same architect that created Auswärtssieg Arena, is the newest of his state-of-the-art Lontorikan stadiums. The stadium is located inside a skyscraper (similar to a plan to rebuild Aeropag Olympic Stadium that never received funding), which includes parking and hotel accomodations. It is named after its sponsor, the Capitalizt Consolidated Conglomeration Corporation (C4), which is also responsible for the manufacture of Capitalizt SLANI’s kits.

Auswärtssieg Arena
City: Natestadt
Capacity: 127 202
Quality: ★★★★★
Covered: no
Club team: Natestadt Nationalisten (Élite League One)
Given the limited success and fan base of the local team, the Natestadt Nationalisten, the club successfully lobbied the owners for it to be given the name Auswärtssieg Arena, meaning “arena of away wins.” Although Capitalizt SLANI has not encountered many away wins there, the name has stuck. It is of fairly advanced construction, and is regarded as one of the best venues in Paripana, a reputation that helped in its bid to host the final of Globe Cup 6.

In a surprise move, Devida Cal has decided to switch to a slightly more conventional 4-3-1-2, which means Ad’ihan will play with a back four for the first time in their history. The defensive midfield position, a staple of Ad’ihani football since WC38, has been dropped; Danny Jacobs returns to a substitute role in the squad. Two player changes were made to the WC45 squad for WC46: Francis Yang has been dropped from the national side, while assistant captain Jake Holmes, at 36, has decided to retire from international football.
