A good definition of resentment for you (I think it will help you): resentment is like injecting your own body full of poison and then waiting for the other person to die.

Just let it go. You're not going to achieve anything by letting this fester within you.

The Australian 18 October
World Cup bid team met man accused of bribery

AUSTRALIAN World Cup bid delegates met a group of Nigerian officials last year, including the man at the centre of bribery allegations.
Football Federation Australia yesterday confirmed that Amos Adamu, the Nigerian president of the West African Football Union, who also serves on world governing body FIFA's executive committee, was at a meeting at the Australian high commissioner's residence during the under-17 World Cup in November.

http://www.theaustralian.com.au/news...-1225940394267

this second time FIFA get such reports about Australia in this year and should now take action also AFC should kick Australia out of Asia and send them back to Oceania after their scandal with Tahiti member who is president of the Oceania Football.

in 28 october meeting they should cancel Australia bid since it is the only country don't have seat and try to buy votes by money and Jewelry.


and here some reports about the last time ....

Awwwwwwwwwww. I engaged in civil discussion. When I started listing intelligent points, all of a sudden you swarmed up with insults and put-downs.

And when I got back at you...you pull the "troll" card.

Can't take it? Maybe the blood rush is too much for you. Maybe it's you JimB, PhD, should be counseling you; not me.

I haven't cracked. But you guys just reminded me that I gotta change the kitty litter.

Later, chumps...

Yes, of course he is.

No one could genuinely be so obtuse, surely?

Nevertheless, it's a slow work day. So it's been fun toying with him.

History, tradition and identity might mean nothing to you.

But they are qualities highly prized by the football fraternity.

I suspect Gondolier enjoys such types of conversation considering he has no life. still my short comings in rushed replies are surely enough evidence to see I am indeed a retard of the highest magnitude. Unfortunately ... I'll take my highly paid job and maybe one day return to study English. and not the highly acclaimed British language.

But unlike IOC which categorically recognises UN recognised countries only, FIFA is more flexible and recognises other territories and dependencies.
It doesn't matter at all for everyone outside Britain and for the topic. USA has dozens of states on its own, Russia is a federation with more than 80 subject that includes 21 republic and 5 other autonomous subjects with 30 official languages.

The first international wasn't Texas vs Ohio though, it was Scotland vs England.

If we're going to go off-topic it might as well be about something interesting. Has anyone else come across The Unofficial Football World Championships before. Japan are the current World Champions:

http://www.ufwc.co.uk/

Welcome to the Unofficial Football World Championships – probably the least known but most exciting football competition on Earth.

This is how it works: the Unofficial Football World Championships (UFWC) pitches real international teams into a continuous series of boxing-style title matches. Winners of UFWC title matches become title-holders, and move up the rankings table.

UFWC lineage goes right back to the very first international football match in 1872, between Scotland and England in Glasgow. As Scotland and England were the only international teams in existence, the winner of this initial match could safely claim to be the best side in the world – the Unofficial Football World Champions, if you will. Unfortunately, neither side managed to win the match – the score was a rather disappointing 0-0. So swiftly fast-forward to the second international football match, again between England and Scotland, and played in London on 8 March 1873. This time there were a full six goals – England won 4-2, and became the very first Unofficial Football World Champions. But they didn’t hold the title for long. In 1874 they were beaten 2-1 by Scotland, meaning the UFWC title passed to the Scots.

The UFWC title bounced backward and forward between England and Scotland, and then Ireland and Wales got involved. The British home nations dominated the UFWC during international football’s formative years, until the instigation of international tours and tournaments meant sides from all around the globe began to play each other. Following the UFWC lineage through almost 800 friendly and competitive matches, we can trace how the title was passed between over 40 different nations during more than 130 years of international football.

The UK government itself has the official line that the UK is four countries with a common government.

If anyone believes they are better informed than the UK government on the subject, then perhaps they ought to take the issue up with them.

The first international fixture might actually be USA v Canada. In cricket! It took place in 1844.
