Just in recent years, Europe has produced:
Giannis - Greece
Gobert - France
Wemby - France

...and the award goes all the way back to 1935!

Maybe a part of that is that whites are not looked down on athletically in Europe like they are in America. Also whites are always
better team players as they share the ball instead of being a ball hog just to get their own glory. Very cool statisic. Never knew that. Thanks.

This will be me for the WC in football as well.

The World Cup odds are sus.
Brazil are perhaps rightful favorites, but France, England and Germany are heavily overrated, while Argentina, Spain and Belgium are heavily underrated. Argentina and Spain started 0 black players in their last game, while Belgium only started 3.

England have no chance. They are in pathetic form. Belgium haven't been able to get it done on the big stage unfortunately.

Spain have a core of midfield technical talent but they need to be clinical when it matters.

Argentina have had the opposite problem in recent years. Hopefully one of those two can come through in the end.
