The other nations in this blog are the ones in real life (so I leave them to their own devices, other than international tournaments- ha ha!) and also the ten other made-up nations. seven of them are part of the ‘Central Atlantica(s)’ continent.
Language: Spanish | Population: 9 Million | Capital: San Marcos
Football Federation: Federacion Aguador de Futbal (FAF)
Top Clubs: Cháves CF, Florencia, Galencia, Independiente, Internacional, Deportivo Maragoza, Club Panteras.
The Aguadorians are very passionate about their football (and baseball too!). The hottest of the Grand Eborias, Aguador has a warm and generally pleasant climate- with occasional droughts and floods. The Aguadorian Superliga is armed with some very good teams. Many Aguadorians end up playing abroad to get to the highest level. Juan Pablo Sisco and Osvaldo Gutierrez are two of the players to play in La Liga in Spain.
Language: Dutch | Population : 1.5 Million | Capital: Nieuw Amsterdam
Football Federation: Anderlandisch Voetbal Bond (AVB)
Top Clubs: Totterdam SV, Oranje SV, PVC Rosendam, Willemsburgh SV
Anderlanders, also known as the Andutch (Anderland-Dutch) are people that originally came from the Netherlands to the Eborias. A small country, the coldest in the Eborias is located to the north-east of Eboria. The Andutch have lots of very skillful players, who often play abroad due to the low-standing of the national league. The four top teams compete in the ESL and NLS systems in Eboria. Only Totterdam have played more than one season in the ESL, returning for 2017-18.
Language: Djaraskan/English/ Hungarian | Population : 0.64 Million | Capital: Visagrad
Football Federation: Futboll Federatza Djaratza (FFD)
Djaraska is a nation that sometimes finds it hard to maintain its identity. Due to the migration of Hungarian and Polish immigrants in the 50s and 80s, the indigenous people have given way somewhat to the newcomers. The Hungarian influence is now clear to see on the football field, with many players of Hungarian descent. Strong in the 90s, but suffered in the past 10 years.
Language(s) Italian (main), French and Spanish | Population: 8 Million |
Football Federation: Latania Football Associazione (LFA)
Top Clubs: Filadelfia, Giapoli, SS Juvenese, AS Milazio, Rosano Centrale
Latania is a mainly Italian influenced country, but with little pockets of French and Spanish built up in certain areas. Latanians have always been very competitive, especially in the CONCAFA club competitions- AS Milazio, Rosano Centrale and Juvenese have been long-term contenders. ‘Super Mario’ Mario Lotti had been playing in Italy, but has returned to Rosano Centrale on loan for the 2016-17 season.
Language: Portuguese | Population: 10 Million | Capital: Mardis
Football Federation: Confederacão Marida de Futebol (CMF)
Top Clubs: Bragadora, Atlético Mardis, Real Mardis, São Luis, Sporting Mardis, Nova Porto, RC Santos
Marida is a football-obsessed country. The Portuguese-speakers have lots in common with the samba of Brazil and the European culture of Portugal. Regularly competing for the top prizes in international and club competitions, the recent team outing, where they lost to Eboria in the final was seen as a golden team. With Strikers Rolando and Carlos Ricardo playing in Europe (and Carlosinho only recently returning) there is lots of experience and flair to come from this team.
Language: Spanish | Population: 2 Million | Capital:
Football Federation: Federacion Panduran de Futbal (FPF)
Top Clubs: Club Tigres, Real Casablanco, Bocamanga CF
Panduras is the second Spanish speaking nation in the CONCAFA region, a mountainous zone in the Central Atlantic. Haven’t ever really had a massive impact on the international stage, but are always competitive on the club side.
Language: French | Population: 6.5 Million | Capital: Loris
Football Federation: Fédération Saint Louisian de Football (FSLF)
Top Clubs: Roxaunne, Stade Lenseille, Olimpique Mondeaux, Bruxerre, AS Neveu, Racing Club Loris.
French speaking Saint Louis only gained independence from France in 1904. They have a good football pedigree, gaining somewhat from the French connection, having resettled people from Africa to this Central Atlantic state. Several ESL great began their careers in Saint Louis, such as Jean-Pierre Lévesque, Daniel Petkovic and Marc Bastien.
Then, there’s the African nation:
Language: Zumandan & English | Population: 3.9 Million | Capital: Napoó
Football Federation: Zumandan Football Federation (ZFF)
Top Clubs: Royal Napoó, Heartland City, Olympiqué Napoó, Napoó United
The North-West African Island of Zumanda is a Kingdom without much of a history in terms of Football. It is only since the 1990s that the game really took off. The Kings have never really been a fan of the game, but that changed when Prince Amakala started playing at school. African Champions in 2008, have several players in the ESL.
The Asian nation:
And finally the Pacific-Oceanian nation:
Language(s): Réishan & English | Population: 2 Million | Capital: Theeba
Football Federation: Royal Réishan Football Federation (RRFF)
Buraqas have never won anything on the international stage and are currently experiencing a civil war, following a military coup, followed by years of resistance and rebellion. Zumanda were African Cup champions in 2008. Réisha were Oceania Champions in 2007 & 2011.
