[b]Group A Analysis[/b]
We should just call this group the "North American Group". Pravus Ingruo and two Canadian teams? Hell, even Monaco has the Bahamas. Yeah, we'll go with that. So in the North American group, there really aren't any teams that can match the host country's experience or skill. I mean, sure, Monaco has been here before, but the other two are just newbies. Pravus Ingruo wins all three games and walks out of the group unscathed, ready to take on whatever team finishes second in Group C. In an upset that comes on Match Day 3, look for Republique du Quebec, those "Les Fluers" (these guys spell things weird, I mean some of their guys are off a team called "Les Bleus"... what the $%&@ is a "bleu"?) will upset Monaco to squeak into the Quarterfinals.

[b]Predicted Finish (Name - Points):[/b]
Empire of Pravus Ingruo - 9
Republique du Quebec - 4
Principality of Monaco - 3
Commonwealth of Canada - 1

[b]Group B Analysis[/b]
Welcome to the wide open Group of Suck. Seriously, if you're a betting type, stay the hell away from this group. Our guess is as good as the next schmuck's how this one is going to turn out, but we have to give it a go, so we will. DSR of Sri Lanka will advance. Why? They've been here before, in the albeit shortened Cup of Nations IV (damn Africans can't keep their countries in order). Eastern France won't make it out simply because of their name and because they're, well, French. That leaves the Germans and the dudes from Northern Asia. Just going on historical precedent here, I'll take the Germans. Barely.

[b]Predicted Finish:[/b]
DSR of Sri Lanka - 7
Germanic Union - 5
Serene Republic of Vaule - 4
Eastern France - 0

[b]Group C Analysis[/b]
This group is very similar to the North American Group, except much more worldly. Two Asian nations, a European, and a North American. The Kingdom of Cochin is the class of the group, and I expect them to coast through easily. The only thing that'll keep them from a perfect record to match the hosts will be a tie on Match Day 3 against the Boston Federacy. That's right, those plucky !@#$%^&* with the bad accents who spell the word "socks" funny are going to draw the mighty Asians on the last day and thus seal their way through to the Quarterfinals to face their Father-Country. If England grabs more than 3 points in this group, color me stunned.

[b]Predicted Finish:[/b]
Kingdom of Cochin - 7
Boston Federacy - 5
Marscurian Siberia - 4
England - 0

[b]Group D Analysis[/b]
This is our Group of Death? Why? Because we have to have one? Oh bugger off. Fine. Here's your Group of Death. *crickets* The Athenian Federation is the class of the group, though they'll be pushed by the Greater Korean Federation and Zargathia. Unfortunately for Mongolia, they don't stand a chance here. Tough draw, lads. So that leaves the bigger teams to beat the hell out of each other. The Athenian Federation will make it out, but the second spot will come down to goal difference. Mark our words. Lookout to whomever makes it out of Group B by the skin of their teeth (we think it'll be the Germanic Union), you'll have a good team on your hands.

[b]Predicted Finish:[/b]
Athenian Federation - 7
Greater Korean Federation - 4
Zargathia - 4
PR of Mongolia - 0

OOC: These are simply guesses on my part, done before any simulation. Nothing here will affect any outcome of any game.

"We are indeed glad with the group that we are in. Marscurian Siberia is a nation with which we are very familiar with several of its players also playing in the Cochin Premier League. That experience would come useful during our Day Two match. England is historically a powerful footballing nation however we are still unsure if the present English team reflects the caliber of historic greats like Alan Shearer, David Beckham, Wayne Rooney, Bobby Charlton etc. We keep our fingers crossed for a high quality match. As regards Boston as the obvious power players in the group they are more of unknowns for us, but we are confident of our chances against them too, " Bhaichung Bhutia, Manager of the Cochin National Football Team said.

"In the previous Cups of Nations we fought hard but unfortunately did not get closer to the Cup. This year we have an envigorated team with some new tactical changes and totally different playing styles. We are sure that this time we would take the cup," Anthony Pereira, captain of the team said at the press conference.

"We're extremely excited to be involved in this tournament. While soccer in Quebec cannot compete with the passions invoked by the local ice hockey teams, the Quebec Soccer Association hopes that a tournament such as this will boost our profile even higher than it has already gone in past years. The fact that this national team includes players from all of the clubs in the QSA, plus a couple of young prodigies from our National Development Program, will only add to the excitement!"

-Gerard Bettemonte, Commissioner of the Quebec Soccer Association

Having been away from the beautiful game for many years on the international stage, this is our chance to regain our prestige as a world leading football team. It is highly unfortunate Ireland, Scotland and Wales failed to qualfiy for the the cup of Nations. We eagerly await our first game with the Kingdom of Cochin.

"We are looking forward to the cup," said P.F. Thavila. "Especially about the first game, against the Germanic Union. Several of our players have their roots in the old GDR, so to them, it's to prove that they still are the better players, despite having left their homeland.
Of course, our other players are very excited, as well. With football - or soccer, if you prefer that - steadily gaining popularity in Sri Lanka, we are confident that we can beat the Union and the others in our group.
In the last cup, which unfortunately was cut short, we did have the chance to go against the very best, among them Transvaal. I'm confident that we could've beaten them.
But that is the past, and we have to concentrate on the present. And the present is now, with our first game being Germany. We're all very excited, but confident."

"I must say we are very excited about the first game being up against Korea, I can think of alot of people here who'd like to see us give it our all but I must be blunt here, we are going in as the underdogs. The Mongolian Soccer Association is very young and the Iron Wolves have been preparing for the cup getting into tip top shape for the coming games. I understand alot of our people will be attending the game and the entire nation will be exposed to it via Television and radio broadcasts. Lets hope we do well and lets support our team to best of our ability."
- Dimitri Geminjin, At a press conference in Ulan Batar.

Eastern France protests against this blatant racism and discrimination by the Cup of Nations organisation--but we won't waste our time complaining. Our team will prove your prejudiced analysis to be entirely false on the field soon enough.

Captain Alexander Bouzina was also quoted to have said something along the lines of 'When we kick your pompous asses we'll see who 'won't make it out because they're, well, French', but this has not been confirmed.

[b]Quebec is outraged by the blatant racism displayed by the employees of the Cup of Nations toward those of French descent, and would hope that those responsible for the statements would be terminated for their lack of professionalism.[/b]

No one has been terminated from Cup employment because no one associated with the Cup wrote the analysis. Why would the Cup write an analysis of it's own groups? That could be seen as match fixing. The article was written by a prominent sports blogger, who can write whatever he wants and express whatever opinion he wants. Stop getting your (rather delicate) knickers in a twist.

The Boston Patriots, in the same group as Cochin, Marscurian Siberia, and England, have a hard time ahead of them. The Cochin team and the English team hail both from prolific footballing nations, and the relative hate for English footballing from Bostonians will only add fuel to the fire in their Day 2 match. An excerpt from the Boston Broadside, the subsidized nationwide newspaper, comments on team captain Medina:

[quote]Captain Medina, whose body build and speed are unparalleled amongst her male peers, wishes to make a name for herself on the world circuit to rise out of the obscurity of the relatively minor Boston League. Despite her refusal to work with coaches and only training privately with a single personal trainer (except in team practices and mandatory trainings), Medina is unmatched in technical ability and what she lacks in pure, raw power she makes up for tenfold with speed and agility that her male counterparts can't seem to rival. The average height of the rest of the team is 6'4", but Medina stands at a 5'7" figure. She weighs a good fourty pounds less than her backups with some of the same strict dietary and training requirements, creating an extreme contrast with her and the rest of the team.

In a brief statement, the usually press-shy Medina said, "The only thing the press has done to me is twist my words and print flattering pictures of my ass in tights; go away."[/quote]

Reporters said that team practices today have been phenomenal.

It was also never stated that it was an official Cup of Nations release. Your assumptions only make you look foolish.

Empire of Pravus Ingruo v. Republique du Quebec 1-1
Goals: RdQ: Blum (1) 65’, EPI: Moats (1) 13’

Come on, man. Seriously? Things started off great for the Crimson Lions, controlling play up front early and putting together some ball handling that made “Les Bleus” (still don’t know what a “bleu” is) look simply childish. A series of three one touch passes, going from Laurent to Fisher to Spalding finally ended up at the feet of George Moats (Pittsburgh Rush) who tickled the twine just thirteen minutes in.

It wasn’t like the Crimson Lions sat back after the goal. They kept attacking. A few chances went wide, a few were stopped, and a few were missed opportunities, but there was never any reason to think the Crimson Lions were in trouble. A 1-0 halftime lead seemed to be much greater, especially coupled with the 65-35 advantage in possession.

But one mistake allowed “Les Bleus” to take advantage. An errant pass by Izzuno was intercepted, and Quebec put it home in the 65th minute off the foot of Blum. After that, it seemed as if both teams were playing for their collective lives. Each could smell the three points, and both wanted it. Both keepers made spectacular saves down the stretch, and the match ended in a disappointing 1-1 draw for the Crimson Lions.

There was one reason the Empire lost this match: execution. We had our chances. We didn’t capitalize. If this trend continues, it’s going to be a long, long tournament.

In what could only be considered miracles, the two matches of Group D had unbelievable results, as the underdogs of the match defeated their opponents. The Korea-Mongolia match was a classical case of hubris, where excessive confidence led to a humiliating defeat.

Korea kicked-off from right to left and the first chance fell to Seol Ki-Myeon, who shot into the side-netting when clear into the left side of the area. The game picked up fast as Korea almost had a second chance within five minutes. Yet, first real chance for Mongolia in the 6th minute, when Tekemajun shot across the face of an outstretched Shin Gwa-Yong.

Mongolia started to apply more pressure and took the lead in the 7th minute. Besud Delemar played the ball into Oltan Tekemajun who hit the ball first time to lift the roof off the stadium.

Mongolia continued to take the game to Korea, who seemed to miss a leader in midfield, and had a goal disallowed for offside in the 14th minute. When the Mongolians break through, Shin looks very vulnerable and shows little movement off his line to narrow the angle.

In the 24th minute Mongolia took their second goal. Jalair Yusilik runs toward Kim Kwang-Seok and Kazunari Okatomo, then confidently shoots between them and past Shin.

Mongolia, who have played very fair and hardly committed any fouls, started the second-half full of confidence. Korea on the other hand tried a similar move down the left to the one that almost got them off to a good start and seem lacking in ideas. The Mongolians continued to apply the pressure and five minutes into the second-half Besud Delemar was unlucky not to keep his shot lower at the far post.

Seven minutes from time, Shin saved Korea from total embarrassment by getting down to blockJalair Yusilik's shot at his near post.

In this match, Korea looked totally disappointing and Mongolia very inspired, and should feel satisfied with this performance. A well deserved victory.

[i]Live from the Cup of Nations V in Pravus Ingruo - Day One[/i]

Germanic Union v. DSR of Sri Lanka: [b]1-1[/b]
Goals: GU: Solveigsen (1) 75’, DSL: Thuwan (1) 33’

An unfortunate, but rather expected result. The Germanic Union is a traditionally strong football nation, and it showed. Aside from Thuwan's magnificent goal in the 33rd, not many good chances were had by the Yellows.
Adding to this was Thuwan's entirely unneeded response to an attempted Panzers offensive. Where he could have simply have positioned himself to remove the threat, he got aggressive, the very aggressive tackle - cleats up and whatnot - bringing the red card.
He could've done this better, but now is suspended for two matches.

Still, the goal was rather good.
The corner shot by Müller went a little long, still beat the keeper backside post. Thuwan did some sort of crazy spin, here again in slow motion. He headed the ball just in front of the goal line and it spun in away from the keeper, into the goal.

But all the greatness of that goal didn't help when the Yellows were reduced to just 10 players against the Panzers after the 63rd minute, in which Thuwan's foul happened.
Twelve minutes later, they equalised the score and then seemed to go on the full defensive while the Yellows attempted to break through again - unsuccessfully, due to their reduced numbers.

Conclusion: Thuwan's mistake cost us a win. While not the most important one - it was the first match of three - it can still be felt. He'll come under some pressure once he can play again.

Serene Republic of Vaule v. Eastern France 0-0
Clean Sheets: SRV: Nasenko (1), EF: Lissi (1)
Yellow Cards: EF: Duval (1), Evains (1)
Red Cards: EF: Diderot (2 match suspension)


This game was marked by aggressive goal shooting from both teams, as well as excellent goal-keeping from keepers Lissi and Nasenko. From the start, both teams launched vigorous assaults on the other's goal, with shots at the goal occurring consistently almost time after time. Keepers Lissi and Nasenko made a spectacular performance, making numerous excellent saves that kept the score an even 0-0.

Eastern France players Duval and Evains were given the yellow card each after tripping two Vaulian players in the match in the 23rd minute and the 48th minute, respectively. Player Denis Diderot was shown the red card after deliberately charging into Vaulian defender Dmitri Loginov while attempting to make a shot on the goal in the 45th minute, earning him a two match suspension.

8. Athenian Federation v. Zargathia 2-3
Goals: Z: Sørensen (1) 18’, Kim (1) 63’, McKenna (1) 91’, AF: Idraulico (1) 23’, Moros (1) 43’

[size="5"][center][u][b]How Could this Happen?[/b][/u][/center][/size]

From our sports reporter.

Going in fully expected to win Ethniki faced a horrible defeat, with Sørensen making the first goal against Athens in the 18th minute. Ethniki quickly regained its play when Idraulico tied the game in the 23rd minute. Ethniki immediately kept putting more pressure on the Zargathians reaching a 2-1 by Moros just before half time.

The second half Ethniki showed what it was known for again with impressive and efficient gameplay denying the Zargathians the ball in the hope to keep game at 2-1, however this dream would be shattered as Kim made a second Zargathian goal in the 63rd minute. While Ethniki did its best to score another goal the game reached the 90th minute at a 2-2. To make the situation even worse the Zargathian McKenna managed to make the game 3-2 for Zargathia.

The question everyone is asking now; how could this happen? Ethniki was a favorite in the notorious group of death and just like Korea should have won the match. One thing is certain however, Santos should get his head attached to his body again or else this cup of nations will be very short for Ethniki.

Patriots tie in 1st international game![/size][/font]

On a match day that had only three wins out of eight games, the Boston Federacy escaped with no cards and Riis scored the first of what is hopefully going to be many clean sheets. Both teams threatened to score multiple times, although the chances for Boston were far more numerous. Riis only had to block four shots on goal, none of them coming close to actually being scored. On the other end of the field, Medina was hitting consistently but the Marscurian goalie was just as competent, making expert saves from difficult angles and rebuffing several volleys.

While the Patriots had a better defensive four and Medina was ripping shots left and right, the Tigers' infallible goalie kept them tied up and still in contention. The Patriots only hope for a tie or a win against Cochin and a better show against the Three Lions.

[b]Quebec Sports Network Interview with Les Fleurs Captain Maurice Chevallieux[/b]

"Well yeah, nobody was really expecting us to be able to run with the big guys but it looks like we really showed ourselves to be a strong team today. Obviously the win would have been great but, you know, the entire team played hard the entire game, and I'm pretty happy that we managed to hold a team like Pravus Ingruo to a single goal."

[b]QSN interview with Les Fleurs Goal-Scorer Robert Blum[/b]

"Yeah, you know I'm not really a goal scorer, I think I maybe had two all season in the Quebec league. Still, with our entire team trying this hard it was obvious that the ball would go in eventually. I probably won't score a goal like that ever again, haha!"
