    Getting back to the topic of the thread. Yes I would support another country, if Italy is out, or not playing. In the last world cup, I wanted Croatia to win, since they never won before. Also, because I don't want France to get another cup, challenging Italy's cup count. Also, no offense to my Brazilian, and German friends, but I will always go against them, in favor of their opposition, because I don't want them to have more cups than Italy, or more than they have already. Nothing personal, it is just about the numbers. That being said, Brazil and Germany do in fact have very excellent teams, and their fans have much to be proud of. The reason why 1994 was so important, is because Italy and Brazil were tied for who had the most world cups; that game decided who had the most ever in the world.

    I would support a different team too (in case Albania is out) if they play good soccer.

    As for the cup count
    Rimet Trophy can’t be considered the same as FIFA World Cup.

    Not sure what you mean by a Dutch uncle, but it seems that you might be after all, since I am Albanian.

    Britain used to have a huge empire, across many time zones.

    The sun never set on the British Empire...because God wouldn't trust an Englishman in the dark.

    This is according to a witty 19th century American professor called John Duncan Spaeth.

    I am, in many ways, a bit of an Anglophile, no doubt the result of reading so much English literature and history and watching so much "Masterpiece Theater", even if often their personal relationships leave me baffled.

    Many Englishmen are also great Italianophiles, sometimes knowing more about Italian art and architecture than the natives. Many of the greatest works of appreciation of Italy, of its art, architecture, and music have been written by Englishmen. Many also love Italy as a place to live, as was shown in the movie "Tea with Mussolini", which shows the life of the expatriates pre-the Second World War, and as can be seen in the fact that there are so many Englishmen living in Toscana that it is wittily sometimes called Chiantishire. The many gardens which they created, like the ones in Ravello, and Portofino, and at La Foce in Toscana, are among my favorites in the world.

    What has to be remembered is that there is a huge class difference in England, and the differences between the upper class and highly educated English people and the working classes are profound. The working classes dominate among the men who travel to football matches and the people who go to places like Ibiza and even some places in Spain, and make themselves notorious. A different type of English people come to Toscana and the Cinque Terre.

    So, I don't blame the whole English nation for the type of behavior on display at this Euro Cup or the sometimes even more notorious behavior when they go to matches on the continent. What I do blame them for is not providing security at the matches, and not arresting and punishing severely those responsible for what happened outside Wembley. It did indeed look like the inner city riots in the U.S.

    What I have also been saying is that the tremendous support for Italy during the final, even by those countries which are often rivals of the Italian team or by people who might not like the "traditional" style of play in the past was partly because of the behavior of the English fans throughout the tournament against all their opponents, but also unforgotten incidents in the past, and, it has to be said, by a certain sense of superiority given off by the English as a whole. Arrogance before a big match is never an endearing or appreciated quality.

    ^^I'm an anglophile as well, from studying their history back in college. It was one of my favorite courses that I took. I don't blame the entire English nation, just their hooligans that attacked Italians after the final.

    They still do, but in a different way. It is called corporate world now, compared to colonial one before. At some point they realized that a paid employee is better than a slave and more civil afterwards, but the boss most of the time is an Englishman.

    I think you'll find that more and more companies are owned by Americans or Chinese or Indians, not Brits.

    Of course I would support another countrys team when Spain isnt playing. I am not very interested in soccer, but I enjoyed very much the playing between Spain and Italy, and of course I supported for Italy in the final against England. I like a lot when Portugal, Italy or Switzerland win, if Spain is not playing, and I like a lot always, everytime, when England fails. Other countries like Germany, Ireland, Belgium, France, etc... are indifferent for me, but I can support any of them against others when the way of their playing is good.

    As the great Blas de Lezo 300 years ago said: "Every good spaniard should always piss looking at England".

    I would support the team from another country if the team from my own country did not play, if it were eliminated or if a significant part of its players were not ethnically from my country (as is the case with the French or English teams).

    even FIFA Infantino addressed racism in italian football stadiums and how it is mostly unpunished. what's so bad about the term systemic? it's a valid and fitting word imo.

    ^^woke people like yourself keep using the same annoying clichés, like "Systemic", and "Equity". You just regurgitate pseudo-intellectual jargon. Get yourself a thesaurus.


    Also, please do not say you are an Italian, or half, or what ever you are pretending to be. If you actually are, you are a traitor, because every comment you make is against Italians.

    nothing particularly intellectual about systemic if you ask me but whatever.

    and why should i be a "traitor"? that on the other hand is last century jargon in that context imo. first of all there are things i like about Italy and others i simply dislike. and just because i have italian ancestry doesn't mean that i am somehow "sworn" to Italy. also can't see how some of my comments, or even every single one, should be against Italians.

    Based on your past posts, I think you are a racist middle easterner using a sock-puppet, employing far-left wing ideology to undermine and abuse Europeans.

    can you give examples where i try to "undermine and abuse" europeans? maybe it is because of my post about romans beeing perceived as rather exotic in germany where you also came up with my supposed arab ancestry? how exactly should i be undermining and abusing europeans?

    Italy keeps winning. Lamont Marcell Jacobs, an Italian won the men’s 100 metres gold at the Tokyo Olympics. He was born in the USA but, he's half Italian(maternal side) and half Afro-American.However, his mother returned to Italy when he was a baby. Therefore, Lamont Jacobs speaks English with a strong Italian accent since he grew up in Italy and didn't have contact to his American father. Anyway, he won the first Gold medal in sprint for Italy ever, and he seems to be a very likeable guy, too.




    Here an English interview with him.



    And here an Italian interview.
