Probably related to precedent. i.e. they had international teams whilst ruled by the BritishLittle confused about the power/what power China has over Hong Kong
Yet Hong Kong has international sporting teams too
Just recall States who are overseas territories of France and Holland aren't allowed international teams, yet Hong Kong can, even though they seem to have similar country/state status?
It's normally kept behind closed doors.Lol at "Snitched" and "happens all the time". Provide evidence where big name players at big clubs in England have had a fight in international duty because of club rivalries. I've never seen it.
I read a suggestion that Southgate’s hand was forced (into making a public statement) by the story being leaked to the media. Ideally I agree it should’ve been kept behind closed doors but in the circumstances I think he and Sterling both dealt with it really well.It's normally kept behind closed doors.
A few people have come out in recent times saying that Liverpool and United players wouldn't talk to each other on international duty.
Haha what?Hong Kong is a separate economy and political system.
Those French overseas territories are the equivalent of what Tassie is to Australia. FIFA would never recognise Tassie if it had its own team and federation.
Yep I was thinking Guam and Puerto Rico too hereHaha what?
Tasmania is a state of Australia not an overseas territory and a country in its own right. I understand those French overseas territories have voting rights, but they don’t physically make up the Country.
Try something like Norfolk Island as an equivalent here.
Or what Guam or Puerto Rico are to the USA. (Though Puerto Rico’s congressional member has no voting rights)
