Why So Racist, World Cup?

Submitted by: davymid 6 years ago in Sports

Not to worry, FIFA are going to balance it out by featuring a match between the island nations of Krakatoa and Kiribati.

Angilion actually made the dual mistake of assuming it was Nigeria AND only counting group matches while discounting friendlies. I suppose I should expect nothing more than idiots talking when they don`t have a clue about the subject, because this IS the internet after all.

jiesen: Or, before making an ass of yourself, you could see that the flag next to "NIG" has orange in it while a quick google images search reveals that Nigeria`s flag looks like this:



Maybe Nigeria`s abbreviation is "NGA" because "NIG" was already taken?

The abbreviation for Nigeria is Nga, and as noted already, Germany and Nigeria haven`t even played each other as they`re in separate groups. if they do, it would be either Ger - Nga or Nga - Ger.

I actually thought about this the other day. I guess someone had the same thought and decided to photograph a game of pro evo or something.

It isn`t real, though it could happen.

Nigeria are in group B. Germany are in group D. So they haven`t played each other yet and won`t unless they both get to the later stages of the tournament.

If they did play each other, I expect we`d see `Ger Nig` instead.

Well, the country is already called Niger to begin with, so all they are doing is writing the actual name of the country

No. That would be a loss. A horrible horrible loss caused by the worst officiating I have ever seen!

To be fair, it`s neither Nigeria nor India, but the African country of Niger. Germany played them in a friendly a while back. And yeah, it`s not from this world cup. Doesn`t detract from the Luls though - you`d at least think they could have ran with GER:NIG on the scoresheet rather than the other way round...
