Not a soccer buff. But, I enjoy the World Cup. It starts in less than 2 weeks.

USA announced its 26 man roster. I don’t have an official count, but I noticed several foreign born players, and maybe 10-12 Whites.

12 whites, 12 blacks, and 2 hispanics. Sad and ridiculous, but it actually could have been worse. I'll be rooting for Wales and Iran in the group against England and the Great Satan USA.

I hope that our old friend Rebaljo can chime in with a breakdown of every single player's racial admixture.

Its going to be very hard to support a US team that is majority non-White. Its also weird how obsessed they are with black players, having them overrepresented by a factor of around 3.5 times. And its not like blacks excel in the sport of football to warrant that massive over-representation. There have been some individual black players that have had great careers (mostly in Brazil or France) but African teams have never even made a semi-final appearance. Considering the US now has just as many or more Hispanics (mestizos really) than blacks, you'd think that they'd be the largest non-White faction. Especially considering they've been successful in Central and South America and are almost all soccer obsessed. The US fetish with the myth of black athletic superiority is so absurd its a parody at this point. I hope the rest of the world is laughing.

I was fishing around some comment threads on the normie forums (bad idea) and saw one cuck lamenting that the omission of Ricardo Pepi meant there were no "Mexican-Americans" on the roster, which would make it harder to "recruit" such a large swath of the country's population. So we've got that going for us, I guess.

Jesus Ferreira is Colombian and Cristian Roldan has parents from Guatemala and El Salvador.

As far as our blacks go, Yunus Musah is literally an anchor baby whose Ghanaian mother birthed him while "on vacation" in NYC. Timothy Weah's famous father George is literally the president of Liberia. Sergino Dest was born in Holland to a white woman and a "Surinamese-American" man. Antonee Robinson was born in England to a Jamaican father with US citizenship. Cameron Carter-Vickers was also born in England and has a black American father. Kellyn Acosta is half-Japanese and half-Puerto Rican. Haji Wright was born in Los Angeles to Liberian and Ghanaian parents.

The USA obviously has no difficulty (nor hesitation) in recruiting dual-nationals. Unlike the USA, Mexico is a country rather than just a concept, so "Mexican-Americans" always choose their country.

Here's the final 26-man Team USA roster:

ussf_mens23_squadphotos_1920x1080.ashx



Players are listed youngest-to-oldest...

Black - 12
Yunus Musah (Ghanaian)
Sergino Dest (Dutch/Surinamese)
Timothy Weah (Jamaican/Liberian)
Tyler Adams (Italian/African-American)
Weston McKennie (African-American/mother is possibly white)
Haji Wright (Ghanaian/Liberian)
Cameron Carter-Vickers (English/African-American)
Antonee Robinson (Jamaican)
Shaq Moore (Trini)
Kellyn Acosta (African-American/25% Japanese)
DeAndre Yedlin (50% Jewish/African-American/Dominican/Native American)
Sean Johnson (Jamaican)

White - 10
Joe Scally
Brenden Aaronson (Swedish)
Josh Sargent
Christian Pulisic
Luca de la Torre (his father is a white guy from Spain, his mother is also white)
Ethan Horvath
Jordan Morris
Walker Zimmerman (can't find any evidence he's Jewish. He doesn't look it. Born and raised in Metro Atlanta)
Aaron Long
Tim Ream

Mestizo - 3
Giovanni Reyna (Argentine/Portuguese/Irish)
Jesús Ferreira (Colombian)
Cristian Roldan (Salvadoran/Guatemalan)

Jewish - 1
Matt Turner


Interesting that not a single player has documented ancestry from any of the top 4 countries of origin for current immigrants in the US:
1. Mexico
2. India
3. China
4. Philippines

Also interesting than none of the top 15 countries for current immigrants in the US have historically been particularly good at soccer.
The best would be Colombia, who in terms of all-time peak Elo, only rank 20th.

I don't know how anybody can look at Brenden Aaronson and think he is Jewish. Such a weird article tbh. He also doesn't have curly hair. He has wavy hair which is a European thing. Yeah Zimmerman is 100% not a jew. Sadly so many Eastern European jews want to take western European surnames to better blend in to white America. Like Steven Spielberg.

England has selected 17 Englishmen and 9 Blacks. Harry Kane is one of the best players in the world in the moment, and England have a reliable pair of hands in Jordan Pickford. Declan Rice and Phil Foden are formidable young talents. They might be the strongest European team.

FhNTMUqXwAEWzPt.jpg

France has selected 8 Frenchmen, 2 Arabs, 14 Blacks, and an Asian. This team is not as strong as it was four years ago, especially with Pogba and Kante in midfield out injured. Four of France's midfield options Tchouameni, Camavinga, Guendouzi, and Fofana are all 23 years old or younger, and none of them have played in a major tournament. 22 year-old Tchouameni is Kante's replacement, and only made his first appearance for France less than a year ago.

FhJ3CsjXgAIsfEk.jpg

Spain has picked 3 Blacks--Ansu Fati, Robert Sanchez, Nico Williams--along with 24 Spaniards, which is disappointing to see, though this may be due to some injuries to other players. Ansu Fati and Williams are both only 20 years-old and they both play out wide. As always, Spain have some world-class midfielders with Rodri and rising star Pedri. But, the fact that Spain has two unproven Blacks among its attackers does not make this team impressive.

FhTGDJ8X0AwDA3f.jpg
Portugal has selected 19 Portuguese, 2 mixed Brazilians, and 5 Blacks. On paper, this appears to be a strong team, but they were terrible last year in the European championship.

FhOHbiAXgAEzmEh.jpg
Germany has selected a shocking 8 Blacks and and 17 Germans for its squad. The Turk Ilkay Gundogan joins them. This is absolutely extraordinary for a country where Blacks make up only 0.4 percent of the population. Approximately 90 percent of Germany's population is made up of Europeans and 9% is made up of various Asian and Muslim peoples.

Overall, this is an average squad that will not advance deep. It is noteworthy that Germany do not have many options up front other than a 17 year-old African by the name of Moukoko. Bayern's Black wingers Sane and Gnabry are on the erratic, inconsistent side, far from world-class talents.

FhNgBmpXkAAGFV6.jpg


The Netherlands has selected 15 Dutchmen and 11 Blacks. In defense, the Dutch have de Ligt, de Vrij, Ake, Dumfries, and van Dijk all playing at top clubs. Daley Blind is highly experienced and brings leadership to the squad. Up front, however, this squad is average. Most of the team's attackers had failed spells in the English Premier League.

On paper, Brazil is the strongest team, and are favorites from a football perspective. Neymar is in the best form of his career currently with French club Paris Saint-Germain. Alison and Ederson are the top goalies in the English Premier League. Vinicius is soccer's Great Black Hope, and plies his trade along with Eder Militao and Rodrygo in Real Madrid, where midfielder Casemiro spent most of his career. They have quality fullbacks in Italian club Juventus with Alex Sandro and Danilo. In midfield, Bruno Guimaraes has had an impressive debut season in the English Premier League. Midfielder Fabinho plays regularly with Liverpool.

Up front, Brazil is stacked with options. Gabriel Jesus and Martinelli currently are in 1st place with Arsenal in the English Premier League. Antony, Richarlison, and Raphinha are all playing in top European clubs, and are threats from out wide.

Even looking at the Brazil's ethnic makeup, the only unmistakable Blacks from a Brazilian context are Militao, Alex Sandro, Fred, Gabriel Jesus, Rodrygo, and Bremer. While Alex Telles, Bruno Guimaraes, Everton Ribeiro, Lucas Paqueta, Pedro, Martinelli, and the three goalies appear to be largely White.

Argentina might be the next favorites. Messi is still performing at an excellent level in France. He has a solid supporting cast this time. Martinez looks to be a competent goalie, given that he's playing regularly in England. The experienced Otamendi provides strong leadership at center back, and one of Romero, Martinez, or Pezzella can be a strong partner for him. Their fullback options Molina, Tagliafico, and Acuna are all playing regularly in European clubs. In midfield, Paredes, De Paul, and Enzo Fernandez appear to be decent. Striker Lautaro is a fine partner for Messi, as he has consistently scored for both Inter Milan and Argentina. Argentines are not in the very top clubs in the world to the extent the Brazilians are. But, Messi will always be a difference maker.

FhSrUG1X0AErsUi.jpg

Uruguay could be a handful for whatever team faces them. They will bring a nastiness and street smarts the way all White or Mestizo teams from Latin America do, personified by players like Luis Suarez, Diego Costa, and Portugal's Brazilian Pepe.

Cavani, Suarez, and Godin at 35 continue to play well for club or country. Liverpool's Darwin Nunez is a promising young talent who may be among the next great strikers in Europe. Several other players thriving in Europe: Araujo (Barcelona), Gimenez (Atletico Madrid), Valverde (Real Madrid), and Bentancur (Tottenham).

England are great on paper, but mediocre in reality.

They have 1 top 3 finish in World Cup history, which goes back more than 92 years.

Here's how I see England's run going:
- Top their group.
- Beat Ecuador in the last 16.
- Lose to Argentina in the last 8.

Canada is celebrating its first World Cup berth since 1986 by sending 14 blacks, 1 Colombian, and 11 whites to Qatar. The Canadian team always had an outsized influence of various European ex-pats with citizenship: now that they've been importing Africans for a few decades, they can eschew their actual countrymen even more efficiently.

I was surprised to learn that the 1986 team had even one lone black player, defender Randy Samuel.

Trippier is a quadroon. I don't know about Noa Lang. But he looks suspect might be the perm he has though

Another reason to hope for an early exit for the USMNT. Despite FIFA’s request for the teams to leave the political and ideological activism at home and just play football:


Nothing I despise more than the condescending preaching from sports figures. As if we are all hateful, ignorant people that don’t respect the rights of others. **** you, Berhalter. Shut up and coach.

It seems like USgAy and Germany are going to compete in the virtue signaling Olympics rather than the World Cup this year.

Germany, we see your big, gay airplane and raise you a homosexual crest.

America’s Highest Value: Sodomy

Remember when America represented individual Liberty including the freedom of speech, self defense, association and privacy. Now the only “freedom” this country promotes is freedom to degenerate sex, hardcore pornography and infanticide. Great Satan indeed.

Rarely have I wanted to see the US bow out of an international sports competition as much as this. They can’t just play. It always has to be more politically charged than that. All the more pathetic because it isn’t like we are favored to go deep in the tournament, it makes it even more ridiculous

Agreed I hope Wales kicks their ass. Germany can kick rocks too.

For me I just watch Italy. If they do well I follow the tournament usually. This time I may or may not bother depending on how much time I have

world cup season, and I remembered Effenberg in 1994 when he was substituted against South Korea and gave the middle finger to the German fans (He was expelled from the German national team for this, and he returned home hours after the game against Korea.)

89f1e04a-0001-0004-0000-000001235895_w996_r1.778_fpx60.63_fpy50.jpg

Effe Certainly a prominent character, a player with a strong personality, which was common in Germany at the time (Others are Matthaus and Andreas Moller, in the 80s Rummenigge and Harald Schumacher)

Some anecdotes of this German star, During his first stint with Borussia Mönchengladbach, he allegedly made bets with colleague Jörg Neun on who could shoot out more lamps with an air rifle in the team hotel, He also stole a jeep and drove it into a rubbish dump. Later, at FC Bayern, teammate Klaus Augenthaler swore in the tabloids that Effe had threatened to beat up coach Heynckes in the dressing room ("Are we going out the door?"). His nickname "Tiger" was his own fault anyway, due to a hairstyle he created during "Wetten, dass ", Effenberg was always bubbling and simmering on the pitch, and often enough it broke out. One of his specialities was the "welcome foul" - kicking a new opponent really hard in the bones so that it is clear who is the alpha dog here. It is only logical that Effenberg holds the record with 110 yellow cards to this day and in 1991 he even had the honour of being the first Bundesliga player to see the newly introduced yellow-red card.


also this game where he nearly fight with the opposing coach ewald lienen, who after effenberg suffered a hard foul said something and effe didn't like it

Steve Sailer, who is at best a cynic and at worst a cuck, published this extremely cucked article where he took some poetic liberties to wish that soccer would have even more blacks. If you are not a "longtime Steve" fan, I wouldn't recommend it, as it is some of his worst work.

Soccer Talk

I've followed Steve Sailer's writing for 15 years now, and I can't quite tell where he's at anymore. Is this a troll? Has the deadly vaxx, which he endorsed, rotted out his brain? I'm not sure, but I surely don't recommend Steve Sailer anymore. Sorry, sailor.

No beer in the stadiums this WC! What are all the DWFs who are spending thousands to go there going to do? I imagine the English hooligan types are going to be somewhere between furious and suicidal.

Would be awesome if the attendance sucked but who knows, lots of fools out there.


Who in their right mind would pay for a flight to Qatar to watch a soccer game where you can’t even have a beer?
