I guess they have double the GDP per capita as Guyana, but there may be more factors at play than just who colonized who in that situation. Look to Portuguese African colonies

Doesn't feel right that you can make the final without beating any top 10 team in the world. Sweden the most deserving team left on the crappy side of the bracket.

I'm talking about the next best alternative to Australia and you need to back one country at least and not sit on the sidelines. If you ever read the cricket thread, you will never call into question my loyalty.

Same here on England, but I find the All-Blacks hard to hate. England soccer is just the worst.

The best bits of Brazil that weren't made by the Brazilians themselves were made by the Brits in the c.19.



**** the Portuguese. In Bahia, at least, the people spent most of every holiday in the c.19 trying to burn their trading shacks to the ground.



tbf, ideally https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Esport...e_Vit%C3%B3ria should revert to being a cricket club. then maybe Brazil could import a few (sub-continental) Indians and challenge Guyana at the ultimate sport.
