The constituent countries of the UK have their own football teams and therefore England is the only acceptable answer in this circumstance.
It’s also incorrect to say that Great Britain is never the answer outside of questions concerning islands. The country was called Great Britain officially from 1707 to 1800 when it became the United Kingom of Great Britain and Ireland under the Acts of Union.
Welsh, Scottish, and Northern Irish people are all glaring at you right now.
Yes, but not for football. Except at 2012 when they were hosts but that caused all sorts of ructions around team selection as Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland didn't want their players selected.
Team GB has competed in the mens football more than once and been captained by a Welshman. In fact, we won the Gold medal three times as Great Britain.
And, OscarMeow: all sorts of problems with this statement: a) you have no idea about the history and culture if you can say this: b) I hope you’re not American, because that’s really not a place acting like one country at the moment and c) please don’t tell other countries what to do, that’s our ancestors’ schtick and should probably be avoided.
Drop that hundo!
..5/5 on the razor's edge
Our women's team, on the other hand, is pretty amazing!
And contrary to disciplines like handball (I think you Mericans call that ''European'' handball), where America is also inept, football has been played in the US for a long time and there's much money in it too.
@jmellor13 already mentioned Belgium, but think that even Croatia (11th place in 2021) is way ahead of the United States with a population as little as that of L.A. - not the metropolitan area, but the city itself!
Somehow forgot Germany lmao
