The answer, surprisingly, is Belgium.

URUGAAAAAUYYYYYY!

With the Azzurri out , I'm forced to root for my wife's heritage and Germany.

Answering the quiz honestly got me Costa Rica
 
2018-03-02 01:34:38 PM  
Also the blurb they put up about Costa Rica was hilarious

"hope you like 0-0 draws"

that might be because of my views on the D and Italia
 
2018-03-02 01:41:20 PM  
Iceland?!? But if D2 taught me anything (and it has) it's that Iceland is evil!
 
2018-03-02 01:43:31 PM  
Go Switzerland? Meh, ok!
 
2018-03-02 01:48:55 PM  
PERUUUUUUUUUUUUUU!!!!!

Serbia?  Sure, I guess.
 
2018-03-02 01:55:25 PM  
Mexico?  Sure why not.
 
2018-03-02 01:57:55 PM  
Tunisia? But I'm an Islamiphobe!

Time to get a beer or two from each competing country and have a tasting!
 
2018-03-02 02:03:44 PM  
I got Sweden.  This I can do...
 
2018-03-02 02:08:35 PM  
Straya.  I'm okay with this.
 
2018-03-02 02:13:24 PM  
I'm Canadian.  Since we never qualify for the World Cup, we always default to whatever our heritage is.  Since I'm Hungarian/German and Hungary didn't make it, go Germany!
 
2018-03-02 02:15:10 PM  
Ok, that's a little spooky:  I got the one clearest / most identifiable country of origin in my euro-mutt familial/genetic make-up?  Skol!
 
2018-03-02 02:25:09 PM  
I got Iceland. I'll probably also root for any CONCACAF except for El Tri.

Argentina. Oh HELL no.

I'll watch the Icelandic games jsut for the crowd chant:

Terlis: I got Sweden.  This I can do...


I did as well.  So I guess I'm pulling for them, as well as England (former home) and Iceland (because you have to like them) and Panama (oh oh oh oh oh!).
 
2018-03-02 03:52:11 PM  
Poland for me
 
2018-03-02 04:26:41 PM  
I got Spain, a solid choice.  However, I'm cheering for Iceland in the group stage and then Germany in the knockout stage or until Iceland goes out.

FrancoFile: PERUUUUUUUUUUUUUU!!!!!


Me too.  Go Peru!

/probably root for Sweden, for my Swedish colleagues
//Actually a fan of Germany, so we'll see

That seems to be the most prudent course of action
 
2018-03-02 05:07:28 PM  
Serbia? Sure why not?
 
2018-03-02 05:09:45 PM  
Iceland! Go Frozen Volcano Land!

The Swedish Samurai (Zlatan) is fun to watch, played for my club for a while, I'm cool with it, lot's of hot Swedish girls would ensue, and that works for me
 
2018-03-02 05:45:38 PM  
whatever, go Germany.

Same as I always do, as they constitute half my heritage. (The rest is Irish and a mutt mix of lines through Canada.)

\my BIL's family is Portuguese-born, and Ronaldo's almost his exact age
\\the parties for UEFA 16 were awesome

I don't need to worry about who to support because my country was one of the first European nations to qualify.

I just do what I always do, root for the good ol U S of A.

What what?  Well then I'll just root for the homeland of my ancestors, Italia.

What?  Aw come on.
