China it is then. So far Hong Kong has been a separate country in our World Cup.

If we don't reach 32 countries with the one-country-per-manager-policy, there will be a second round of signing up. I hope/expect that won't happen.

Fine with me, just don't suggest merging of two+ countries into one team. Ever.

Btw, there's no rule about certain countries that should play, but there are still some big countries left. Would feel weird to have a WC without Japan or Russia for example.

I'm in I am just waiting to see which countries are chosen first before I put my choice in. My list is down to 15 potential countries so if other people want them first they can have them and I will take one that is left from my list closer to the deadline.

Coryn promised to take Belgium but he didn't sign-up yet. Not here.

I wanna take a small country but I'm afraid of being voted out if the # of managers exceeds 32.

I thought this would become easier to choose once Australia had been selected by somebody else, but it still isn't. :shrug:

I don't know how difficult I'm allowed to be with choosing my country, but these are the five left that I am most interested in managing. If it is possible, I would like to reserve whichever country is leftover once four of the countries below have been selected.

Canada
Israel
Netherlands
Portugal
Russia

I should be back here in approximately 11 hours. If at that time there is more than one option left, I'll just flip a coin or something and make a choice.

Of course, if I'm not allowed to do this, I'll just accept my fate and choose one of my backup countries if none of these are left in 11 hours. :)

I'm looking at doing something similar but the countries being chosen aren't helping narrow down my list much. I am currently sitting at 13 countries I am choosing between and while that is down from where i started it isn't getting much smaller very quickly.

I'm also waiting to see what's left over :D

I suppose with fewer countries this time, it means that we'll have fewer smaller/surprise countries (Happy to see Estonia, Tajikistan, and Pakistan enter the mix for the first time!)

I don't want to repeat, but I'm considering doing Croatia or Malaysia or Mali again. Also considering having a go at Canada. But I'd also like to see at least one African country in the mix, so considering Senegal or South Africa or Egypt.

Decisions, decisions.

22 countries chosen, 10 left (including India). As stressful as deciding on a country is, I'm glad to see much enthusiasm this early for managers.
