    Link: Why So Racist, World Cup? - Not to worry, FIFA are going to balance it out by featuring a match between the island nations of Krakatoa and Kiribati.

    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...

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

    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.

    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.

    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?

    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.
