That's exactly the situation with Ansu Fati and Spain
Sad to see some of the last of our countries to hold out, succumb to Dieversity.
The "diversuhtay" in some of these teams is remarkable.
In the Netherlands, Surinamese and Caribbean blacks compose only 3% of the country's population. I believe that an additional 300,000 blacks under Dutch jurisdiction live in the Caribbean islands. Yet, out of the 20 outfield players selected the country in upcoming matches, blacks make up 50% of the total.
White people are 93% of Germany's population, followed by Muslims at 5%, Yet, of Germany's 20 outfield players for upcoming matches, there are 4 blacks or 20% of the total.
Blacks are estimated to make up 5% of France's population, and France also has access to 1 million blacks in overseas territories Martinique, Guadeloupe, and French Guiana. Yet, well over half of France's national team is made up of blacks.
Spain and Germany had a 1-1 draw.
Spain had 9 starters and 2 mixed Brazilians Thiago and and Rodrigo. Spain's bench had 10 Spaniards and 1 black hype player Ansu Fati. Germany went with 6 German players, 2 Turks Can and Gundogan and 3 blacks Sane, Kehrer, and Rudiger. Germany's bench contained 8 Germans, 1 Turk and 1 black.
In Italy's 1-1 draw with Bosnia, Italy's squad had 21 Italian players, Brazilian-born Jorginho and black hype Moise Kean.
In Holland's 1-0 win over Poland, the Dutch had 5 Dutchmen and 6 blacks in the starting lineup. The Dutch attack was entirely black: Depay, Wijnaldum, Bergwijn, and Promes.
In the match between Norway and Austria, Norway's starting lineup had 8 Norwegians, 2 Arabs and 1 black, while Norway's bench had 10 Norwegians and 1 black. While Austria had 1 black, and in an interesting dynamic for the team, there are also 5 players with Serbian or Croatian roots.
Portugal without Ronaldo defeated Croatia 4-1, and I truly believe Portugal represents soccer's great white hope. Portugal started 9 Portuguese players, 1 Brrazilian Pepe at CB, and a black defensive midfielder Danilo. Portugal's bench had 11 Portuguese players and 1 black. Portugal have two creative geniuses in midfield Bruno Fernandes and Bernardo Silva, as well as exciting young attacking player Joao Felix, Diogo Jota, Trincao, Guedes, and Andre Silva. They have solid midfield options with Andre Gomes and Ruben Neves, seasoned veterans Ronaldo, Moutinho and Pepe to provide leadership, and two world-class fullbacks Cancelo and Guerreiro. I don't think this team has a single weakness.
Interestingly, France had a majority white starting lineup against Sweden: Griezmann and Giroud up front, Digne and Dubois as wingbacks, Rabiot in midfield and Lloris in goal. France's bench had 7 blacks, 2 Frenchmen and 2 Arabs.
Portugal was absolutely dazzling against both Croatia and Sweden, two quality teams with players in Europe's top 5 leagues.
Without Ronaldo, Portugal crushed Croatia 4-1, and Portugal could have 8 or 9 goals with all their close chances and shots off the woodwork.
Against Sweden, Portugal had an impressive 21 shots and 8 shots on target in their 2-0 win.
Portugal have a flawless squad and they truly represent soccer's great white hope.
Cristiano Ronaldo is still playing at a top level, with 37 goals for Juventus last season.
In goal, Rui Patricio has played in several major international tournaments already.
In defense, Ferro and Ruben Dias are an exciting young center-back partnership in Benfica, while Fonte and Brazilian Pepe provide tons of experience and led Portugal to winning the European cup in 2016. Guerreiro and Cancelo are two of the best fullbacks in the world at the moment.
There are many options in central midfield: Bernardo Silva and Bruno Fernandes are both creative geniuses, while Ruben Neves, Andre Gomes, and Joao Moutinho can provide defensive stability.
The country is stacked with exciting young talents in attack: Joao Felix, Trincao, Goncalo Guedes, Diogo Jota, Fabio Silva
Your comments are right on the mark, and especially the last para. England had the greatest empire the world has ever known, but they've sold themselves out and are little better than a third-rate nation. But, as you say, let us not kid ourselves about America, because we're swiftly going the same direction.
Britain had a great empire for over 200 years, and then we took the ball from them and sustained the Anglo leadership of the world right after WW I, but our greatness only lasted about half a century. We are far from the nation we once were. Britain and America, once the two most civilized nations on earth, are sinking into a black morass of political correctness and Marxist ideology. Our downfall began with Brown vs Board of Education (1954) and the legions of barbarians in the streets in the late 1960s, but our fall from grace has been abetted by dreadful leaders like JFK, LBJ, Clinton, and Obama, as well as by lukewarmers like the Bushes.
By the time Brown v. Board of Education reached the Court, Rehnquist, who was not a justice just a clerk at the time, was the only person connected to the case who would have ruled against integration because the propaganda, and also just some genuine but terrible ideas, had dominated the national consciousness. The Hart-Cellar Act did far more damage though. The best hope for Soccer in Europe are the fans in Eastern Europe.
