    I am wondering why FIFA does not allow the Basque Country and Catalonia is spain to have their own national teams

    england and wales and scotland and even northern ireland all get a team so its only fair

    also greenland is part of denmark and they have a team! there are many examples. the basque country and catalonia even have their own language and unique culture so i think they should have a team for each. fifa is just afraid that one of these teams might be much better than spain

    spanish players from catalonia:

    Victor Valdes
    bojan krkic
    fabregazza (hehe sorry bad joke)
    xavi
    iniesta
    puyol
    pique
    joan capdevila
    david navarro
    raul tamudo
    pedro
    sergio busquets

    as you can see they are a nice team

    also there is a team in spain who only uses players from the basque country, so it is basically a basque national team. it is called Athletic Club Bilbao and they are one of three clubs never relegated from La Liga. can you guess the others?

    the basque country is smaller than catalonia but it still makes many great players not just playing for bilbao. Mikel arteta is basque, and so is xabi alonso. also two players playing for spain at the world cup, fernando llorente and javi martinez are basque

    anyway do you guys agree, should these regions of spain be allowed to have their own national team

    yea i have read on this subject a little bit. catalonia have been trying to get a team into fifa for a while but they keep knocking them back. so they just play friendlies.

    and yes greenland do have a team but they are not allowed to compete in international comps i think, maby not even friendlies. because they dont have a grass pitch lol

    Lets put it this way, Barcelona is Catalonia. There is already a team:

    Catalonia national football team - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    I'll let the smart ones figure out why they can't play to qualify for the world cup and all.
