    Santo-Dominian left unites after narrow defeat in presidential elections, but old problems remain
    Today, the Santo-Dominian left-wing overwhelmingly united behind one banner, ending years of endless division and factionalism in the political camp that once reliably dominated the Federal Republic's political scene. The centre-left Country Liberal Party(CLP), which gave this country Presidents Jan Davis Lovings and Eliot Klein, decided to merge with the far-left Santo-Dominian Communist Phalanx(SDCP). Interestingly, the long-running feud between these two leftist parties was chiefly perpetrated by none other than Lovings and Klein themselves. Here's a recap of the entire feud.
    The year was 1306, and then-President Lovings enjoyed good approval ratings. As the 2nd President of Santos-Dominius, Lovings pioneered social and welfare reform, built and repaired rural infrastructure, and sought to eradicated illiteracy. He held the support of a majority of Santo-Dominians, and while he certainly had detractors, they were outnumbered by his supporters for the most part. However, within his own Country Liberal Party, a plot to topple and replace the extremely old President was brewing, and leading the plot was Senator Eliot Klein(SN) and his centre-left moderates.
    Disillusioned with the seemingly "radical" and "extreme" measures that President Lovings pushed for in the National Senate, the young and charismatic Sen. Klein convinced many of the party elders, as well as young CLP voters, to support him and abandon Lovings. After all preparations had been done, Sen. Klein invoked the CLP's constitution and launched a sudden and unannounced leadership challenge against Lovings, ultimately winning it and becoming Santo-Dominian's 3rd President and the first one that came into office without being popularly elected. Infuriated by his own untimely and early demise, Lovings and his far-left base left the CLP, founding the SDCP and siphoning a reasonable amount of votes from the CLP's base.
    Both Sens. Lovings and Klein have since died, but the feud continued on after their deaths, weakening the Santo-Dominian left for years. It was this heated feud that was heavily blamed by both parties for the left's defeat in the 1422 presidential elections, in which incumbent President Paul Goldberg, of the centre-right Democratic Coalition Party(DCB), barely defeated leftist challenger Sen. Jeremy Maxson(WS) from the CLP. Opinion polls had long predicted a massive CLP victory and Maxson's election as the 5th President of the country, but on election night, it was revealed that a razor-thin majority of Santo-Dominians had abandoned the left and voted to re-elect the old and white-haired President Goldberg, handing him his 3rd and possibly final term as he approaches 100 years old.
    Though recommended by leftist commentators and columnists alike, Sen. Maxson declined to become the leader of the new party after the merge was completed and the appropriate documents submitted to the Government. Instead, the CLP's 1422 vice presidential candidate, Sen. Art Bernstein(LM), assumed joint leadership of the party with Sen. Diane Waterside(SDCP-RO), an avowed socialist and former schoolteacher. Bernstein and Waterside named the new party "Coalition of Roses"(CoR), selecting the rose - a historical symbol of the labour movement and leftist causes - as its party symbol. With the left now united behind the CoR, Santos-Dominius seems to be stabilising as a three-party democracy, with the CoL, DCB and the far-right Split Conservative Union(SCU) contesting elections. However, Sen. Bernstein's advanced age and Sen. Waterside's radical ideas may threaten the unity and appeal of the CoR, and Santos-Dominius' left-wing still has a long way to go if it aims to win an election against the now established and strong DCB.

    [santosia and dominium]
    Long, long, long ago, before the first humans settled on the islands we now call Santos-Dominius, the islands were inhabited by a group of gods living there. These were the powerful gods who descended from heaven to create the Santo-Dominian archipelago. There were seven gods, and they were: Saxilon, god of creation; Palatina, goddess of fate; Arlancia, goddess of happiness and nature; Ubuntinius, god of hate and destruction; Oporil, god of weather and the seas; Rechs, the god of war; and Santosia, goddess of love.
    Every day, the gods were living on the islands, nourishing and cherishing it. As the years flew by, however, the gods were beset by loneliness, and the gods met to discuss Arlancia's proposal of creating fairies to help them manage the archipelago. Ubuntinius enthusiastically supported the idea, given that he could create hate between the fairies and gods, bringing him great fun after years of creating boring hate between the gods themselves. Rechs too announced his support, for he could have new playthings to create war between.
    Unsurprisingly, Palatina, Oporil and Saxilon all disagreed with the proposal. Palatina feared that she would not be able to handle the increased workload, as she had already been tired by years and years of determining the fate of plants, animals and nature all over the world. Oporil stated that since the fairies would live on land, he would therefore be equally lonely regardless of the creation of fairies. He refused to support the proposal unless mermaids were created instead, a counterproposal which Arlancia rejected as that would bring her loneliness.
    Saxilon ultimately decided against the proposal, citing the reason that the creation of fairies would take all his energy and powers, and cause him to permanently lose the status of a god. With three people in favour of the proposal and three people against it, the deciding vote was held by Santosia. She agreed to the proposal, saying that she would be honoured to create love and romance between more creatures. And so, the fairies were created in Santos-Dominius.
    Years after, on one fair day, Santosia walked on the largest island in the archipelago. She had always admired the beauty of it, from the beaches to the mountains. She was attempting to create a little shrine as a gift to Arlancia, who created the island, when something bumped into her. She turned around, and was mesmerised by the most beautiful fairy she had ever seen, a handsome male called by the name of Dominium.
    Both of them knew it was love at first sight. Santosia believed that Palatina had blessed her and led her to the love of her life. From that day onwards, the goddess of love fell terribly in love with the fairies she promised to introduce romance to. They would play island-hopping. They would befriend animals and listen to the whispers of plants. But in the eyes of the gods, Santosia had made a big mistake. To fall in love with a creation of your own self, the gods thought, was a most unforgivable sin, one that would call for harsh punishment.
    Santosia was summoned to a hasty meeting of the gods. She was angrily reprimanded by Oporil, who held the belief that the gods were superior to their creations and therefore must not indulge in romance with them, which would - in his opinion - diminish their superiority. She was warned that one more romantic encounter with Dominium would result in Palatina giving their relationship a terrible fat. Santosia lashed out, calling out the gods and angrily storming out of the meeting.
    After the meeting, the goddess of love was haunted by her inability to go to her own lover. She yearned for the chance to see him again, and when the gods set off on a trip and left her alone on the biggest island, she flew to Dominium. But right after they finally reunited, the weather rapidly darkened and the waves started growing more and more violent. As the couple was about to share a kiss, a thunderous bolt of lightening struck Dominium, instantaneously turning him into a pile of nothing but glowing ash and dust. The waves crashed against the shore, sweeping the ash forever out to sea, where Santosia could not reach at all. He had been killed by Ubuntinius' lightning and Oporil's waves.
    Santosia was distraught. She tried to have Saxilon, Arlancia and Palatina, who were sympathetic to her, to revive Dominium, but it was out of their control. Palatina explained that once she had set the fate of someone, it was impossible for anyone - even her - to change it or take it back, for that was the nature of fate. Santosia decided that if she could not get her lover back, she would remember him in spirit. She named the biggest island "Santos", after herself, and named the southern archipelago "Dominius".
    Santosia also repaid the sympathy and support of her fellow gods. When Saxilon created humans to apologise for deciding against the proposal to create fairies, Santosia had the first two ancient city-states, Saxilonia and Palatinium, named after Saxilon and Palatina respectively. The beautiful city of St. Arlaine, nestled in the northern part of Dominius, was named after Arlancia, who tried her best in vain to obtain Dominium's ash from the seas. Rechs, who failed to help her, did not get anything named after him, and neither did Ubuntinius or Oporil.
    And this tragedy, one that happened thousands and thousands of years ago, is rumoured to be the reason why Santos-Dominius is named so. Today, Saxilonia and Palatinium have become Sasslen and Palain respectively, while St. Arlaine has survived throughout the ages, something superstitious citizens claim to be as a result of divine protection from Arlancia. Nobody knows if this fable is real or not, but it is certainly one that has survived through the ages, earning it the right to be called a Santo-Dominian fable.

    Häřtferdsierndeambeu Fűtbočil Fedȩreisn - Post-Tournament Report

    Thank you all for reading our absolute final report on the HAJFF and the tournament as a whole. What, you thought we were gone? Hah! You'll never truly be rid of us! Even if a closing ceremony has occurred, we'll always be around to have our fill. It has been a fantastic ride as we make our way to overall 14th place in the World Cup of Football registering ourselves in the first matches of our history as a mid-table team. With our incredible variability and ruthless gegenpressing style we were able to make a strong start and quickly become the team to watch for exciting matches, such as the dominating 3-2 win over Italia. The Paradigm Compass also dominated the match against Arifiyyah until they pulled out a dramatic last minute comeback to ruin our fine day. After comfortably beating Reçueçn and being the only team to score against them at all in their run, we found ourselves on the end of what at the time was the Football World Cups biggest upset. A 5-1 defeat to Irador who were in the middle of a mini-renaissance of sorts, a scoreline that brought great shock to not only us, but to Irador themselves too. Considering our offensive style and their defensive style, this result was not expected. From there we kind of became boring, a 0-0 with the war-torn Zoran making us all fall asleep. Nevertheless we made it through to battle Larxia. After what must have been the most evenly matched game in the entire tournament, an 89th minute half-volley culminated all hopes of us bringing home the trophy. Larxia, who would eventually finish 2nd as well as have the top scorer (who failed to score against us), scraped through by the surface of their teeth. Thus came to an end our valiant efforts in the cup. Starting strong, collapsing in the middle, then coming back strong again only to suffer heartbreak at the very end.

    The HAJFF actually has a few anthems to it. One for the Federation itself, another for the team and one submitted as an entry by the fans, for the fans.
     
    In our last report, we said that we had something in the works. Unfortunately, our budget was pretty poor for it. But we still got it done, below is the link to the Hertfordshire and Jammbo analysis of the participants in the World Cup of Football. (WARNING: IRREGULARITIES ARE ALMOST CERTAIN)

    As for us, here is a quick summary of the matches we had. Nothing too big, just a run-down.
    Italia 2-3 Hertfordshire & Jammbo Roger Runcis, Yuuma Novak, Afuro Tytarenko Hertfordshire & Jammbo 2-3 Arifiyyah Satoshi Melderis, Eiki Sproģe Reçueçn 0-2 Hertfordshire & Jammbo  Galeem Gaisma, Sanae Kotenko Hertfordshire & Jammbo 1-5 Irador Mettaton EXH Zoran 0-0 Hertfordshire & Jammbo N/A Larxia 1-0 Hertfordshire & Jammbo N/A
    We would now like to extend a glass of whatever drink we so happen to choose to the hosts United Adaikes, who performed a very fine job with hosting this tournament. As well, the HAJFF offers a belated congrats to the winners Nieubasria, runners-up Larxia and third place Tara & Cambray. We are admittedly quite dismayed that Polaris has yet again taken the most top spots, but at least Andolia finally made a name for itself. Too bad it wasn't us lot. The bitter taste of truth indeed.

    President Goldberg announces new passport designs to be rolled out with new citizenship policies
    Today, President Paul Goldberg(DCB-FE) announced that the Ministry of Foreign Affairs had completed designing new passports for Santo-Dominians. The endeavour, which cost around 675,000 SD Dollars, was completed by the MFA with the help of design and marketing firm DesignSD, famous for employing top students from the University of Friberne's Elaine Ip School of Arts and Design. Senator Diane Hutchison(DCB-YC), Minister of Foreign Affairs, said that the passports would be rolled out by 1422, though she added that expedited production may make widespread distribution possible this year.
    Sen. Hutchison explained to reporters that the old passports, adopted after the foundation of the Federal Republic, had become outdated and inconvenient, especially for government officials and diplomats, as their passports were identical with the normal civilian version in terms of appearance and only identifiable by checking the first page. She stated to avoid inconveniences and misunderstandings, there would be three new passports, with one for civilians, a diplomatic passport for diplomats and a service passport for government officials.
    The new passports were revealed to be in different colours. The civilian passport would be in a splendid shade of deep purple with gold letters, while the diplomatic passport would be in a much lighter shade of purple with white letters. The service passport was in a shade of burgundy(though some say maroon), Santos-Dominius' unofficial national colour besides the classic dark grey, with letters also in white. The 10-Star Partitioned Shield, the Federal Republic's most recognisable symbol and unofficial coat of arms, is displayed prominently on all three passports.
    She also stated that accompanying the new designs would be a new citizenship policy. The Overseas Citizens' Rights Act of 1421, passed the day before yesterday in the National Senate, would introduce a new kind of citizen: the Santo-Dominian Overseas National(SDON). Whereas Santo-Dominians living overseas were traditionally required to completely abandon their citizenship if they stay for over 5 years with less than 10 visits to Santos-Dominius, expats abroad can now apply for SDON and stay indefinitely in foreign countries while still retaining the full rights and privileges afforded to a regular Santo-Dominian citizen living back home. Sen. Hutchison stated that SDON citizens would have to renew their status every five years, with the condition that they must at least stay in Santos-Dominius for an accumulated total time of at least one week every five years.
    The new passports, as well as the Overseas Citizens' Rights Act, were generally well-received by most people. Sen. Jeremy Maxson(CLP-WS), former presidential contender, praised the designs of the new passports, calling them "an improvement over the previous, outdated version". Political commentator James Lindsey agreed, saying that the new passports "are miles better in appearance and design". However, Sen. Art Bernstein(CLP-LM) was more critical overall, calling the MFA out for "excessive spending on designing passports while the Santo-Dominian people yearn for better lives". Sen. Bernstein remarked that the cost to have DesignSD create these passports, 675,000 SD Dollars, was an "exorbitant amount of money wasted".
    President Goldberg himself stayed notably silent on the matter following the announcement, with the press conference mostly dominated by Sen. Hutchison's explanations. Lindsey noted that this may be a result of his narrow re-election and weakened political standing, stating that since the President was elected on such a tiny margin, he would therefore attempt to avoid partisanship and controversy at all costs in order to solidify popular support for a possible fourth term. Now in the early days of his third term and nearing his later 90s, President Goldberg is known for his political strength and perseverance, which has allowed him to obtain victories, albeit with the thinnest of margins.

    Tropical Storm Viola approaches western Santos-Dominius from Yatasail Sea
    Today, the National Weather Observatory(NWO) of the Ministry of Science & Development(MSD) announced today that Tropical Storm Viola was swiftly approaching the Santo-Dominian archipelago. Senator Walter Untermann(DCB-NL), Minister of Science and Development, said in a press conference at the MSD headquarters that Viola "is quickly and swiftly approaching Santos-Dominius and rapidly increasing in strength and speed". He stated that Viola "will most certainly pose a strong threat to the Santo-Dominian archipelago", and spent the entire press conference speaking about precautions and preventative measures.
    Sen. Untermann first announced that Viola "is undergoing the meteorological situation of rapid intensification, a dangerous process where a tropical cyclone intensifies dramatically in strength and especially maximum wind speed in a very short amount of time". He told reporters that the National Weather Observatory "predicts Tropical Storm Viola to be classified as a major hurricane and a very real danger to the country", and urged Santo-Dominians to "take any and all precautions and preventative measures possible so as to reduce and control ahead of time the damage and impact caused".
    In line with Sen. Untermann's stern and serious warnings, the Ministry of Information(MI) and the Ministry of Biological, Ecological and Zoological Affairs(MBEZA) both announced extreme preventative measures. Sen. Terry Melvin(DCB-FE), Minister of Information, announced that all schools in the country would have to be closed indefinitely until further notice starting the day after tomorrow. "We must protect and ensure the safety of our children," Sen. Melvin wrote in his statement. Sen. Christelle Chantal(DCB-FR), Minister of Biological, Ecological and Zoological Affairs, announced that all zoos, parks, nature reserves, national parks and wildlife enclosures would be shut down indefinitely and the animals would be all moved to secure indoor facilities that would be well-stocked and able to run independently for weeks on end.
    Other government ministries also took the threat of Tropical Storm Viola seriously. The Ministry of Commerce advised all non-essential cargo traffic to and from Santos-Dominius to be halted as soon as possible, and urged cargo ships and planes already on the way to arrive in Santo-Dominian docks and airports as soon as possible to "allow for protection and shelter". The Ministry of Defence was put on high alert as the Naval Constabulary, the country's non-military naval policing and patrolling force, advised all ships traveling in Santo-Dominian waters to dock and temporarily unload cargo immediately to allow for safe and secure storage. The Ministry of Social Services announced it would close its offices in three days and urged all who had business with it to come forward and "get it over with" before the closures.
    Some ministries took preparation to the extreme. The Treasury of the State announced that all of its offices would be closed starting tomorrow and all employees would be on indefinite paid leave. It also stated that it would limit its operations to only accept applications, requests and documents online, and even those would only be processed after Viola is no longer a threat. The Directory of the Interior also announced that major highways would limit traffic and that after the tropical cyclone passes, all arterial roads would be restricted to government vehicles only. It also announced that the Bill Mulberry International Airport would be closing down tomorrow night indefinitely, and urged all Santo-Dominian planes to be securely parked in hangars and all foreign planes to return to their home countries as additional shelter would not be available at the airport.
    With the entire government scrambling to prepare for the worst case scenario, where a Hurricane Viola wrecks havoc across the Federal Republic, it seems that Santo-Dominians across the country are also preparing to face the brunt of the brutal side of nature. In the big cities like Friberne, Sasslen, Louisann and Arkurter, traffic has ground to a halt as citizens rush to big-box stores and grocery markets to purchase essentials and stock up for the impending disaster. In the rural areas, villagers and farmers have prepared their farms, vineyards, lands and houses for what the NWO describes as "the most destructive natural disaster Santos-Dominius will encounter".

    March 1, 2021; 9 PM Polaris Eastern Time; New Thraproy Sports Complex Main Stadium
    The Nieubasrian national team are running around the pitch, celebrating and hugging, as if not believing that they won the 1st World Cup of Football. The action-filled (and close) match ended in 1-0. The technical and utility units of the United Adaikes World Cup of Football Organizing Committee were busy preparing the podiums and the stage riser in the middle of the pitch for the awarding and closing ceremonies. United Adaikes President Luke Salazar, after congratulating the Nieubasria Ambassador in the VIP box, went down with him and the Larxian Ambassador to the field to congratulate the players.
    When everything was in place, the United Adaikes Football Association Head Myron Lillakis started, "Before we continue in congratulating and awarding the champions of the 1st World Cup of Football that is hosted in our very own nation," he turns to Salazar, "Mr. President, I would like to congratulate and give awards to individuals who performed exemplarily during this tournament. First off, the Golden Glove award is given to the best goalkeeper we have seen in this tournament, and after allowing 5 goals only since their first match in the group stage until bagging 3rd Place in this tournament, congratulations to the Tara and Cambray Union Football goalkeeper Stefan Keller!" As Keller climbs the stage riser, he slaps his chest three times, points and looks to the sky before receiving the award from United Adaikes Sports Commission Chief Pouria Barr.
    "This next award," Lillakis continued, "is given to the player who scored most in this tournament, and though they lost today, he drove his team on top of Group B and helped his team tie with the most goals scored in the group stage. They have the most scored goals in the tournament with 20, and he scored every goal that mattered in the knockout rounds. Help me in congratulating him, from Federacion de Futbol Larxia, winger Leo Messy!" Though grateful with the award presented to him by the Larxian ambassador and smiled for the cameras, the look on Messy's face can be seen that he thought he should have done more.
    "Lastly," Lillakis read from his cue cards, "this next award is given to the best player of the tournament, voted by football fans here and abroad from the start of the knockout rounds up to the semi-finals, selected by the international sports media, and chosen by the United Adaikes Football Association from the pool of players that came from the votes of the fans and selection of the media, who nonetheless, shown great character, sportsmanship and the best of football during this World Cup, help me congratulate Nieubasria forward Camdyn Cartwrighte!" Upon receiving the award from the Nieubasria ambassador, he clenched his fist, kissed it, pointed and looked to the sky and mouthed, "For you, Earc." "Once again", Lillakis said before stepping off from the podium, "congratulations to the winners!"
    United Adaikes Sports Commission Chief Pouria Barr then went to the podium and spoke. "Mr. President, esteemed guests, players, and to the fans here and around the world watching, out of the 24 teams that entered this tournament, they won a feat only dreamed by few, help me in congratulating our Runner-ups in this tournament, the Federacion de Futbol Larxia!" Everyone in the stadium clapped hard, with all fans in the stadium shouting in unison "Larxia!" repeatedly before the team went off the stage.
    As Barr stepped off from the podium, United Adaikes President Luke Salazar went to the opposite side of the riser to his Executive Podium, "I will not make this long, I know, you want to celebrate with your team and everyone, but I would like to thank all participating nations for the trust in our country to host the 1st World Cup of Football. This won't happen without your earnest cooperation. To the Football Association, a job well done for heading in the organization of this event. To the Sports Commission, our work is not yet done. We need to continue to improve the state of our competitive sports in the country to be at par with our international counterparts. And expect the utmost cooperation and participation of the Federal Republic of the United Adaikes to other international sports tournaments that will happen in the future. I'm sorry if I made that long - so, without further ado, ladies and gentlemen, your 1st World Cup of Football champions, the Sovereign Estates of Nieubasria!"

    *This is based on the positions after the matches in group stage and the knockout rounds. The numerical rankings will be given in the coming days.

From Steskia, United Adaikes, we at Santo-Dominian Cable-Satellite Network Channel 3 welcome you back to the second hour of our two-hour special broadcast today covering results from Match Day 5 to the semifinals! Our coverage of WCF1 is brought to you by our generous special sponsor today, PETC, because crustaceans will always be our lovely animal friends, not creatures to be eaten! I, Approctoflecticus Blubberman, will be your host for the entire duration of WCF1."
    "As we went over the results of Match Day 5 and the Round of 16 in the first hour of the broadcast, we shall go over the results of the quarterfinals and the semifinals in the second hour. Now, starting with the four matches in the quarterfinals. Let's look at the graphic here!"

    "In the first match, the Nieubasrians managed to score a 3-1 victory against the nation of Zoran, ending the war-torn nation's strong bid to become champion of WCF1 and propelling their team to the semifinals. I would like to take this moment to express my sincerest condolences on behalf of myself and the entire production crew here at SDCSN Channel 3 for the unfortunate passing of Nieubasria's team captain Earc Velding before their match with Zoran. I'd also like to applaud the Nieubasrian team for bonding together and giving such a strong and exceptional performance in the face of such a terrible tragedy. Quite a show of resilience and perseverance, one that exemplifies the strength of sportsmanship."
    "In the second match, we have Nagaraningrad winning a 2-1 match against their opponents from Irador, thus advancing to the semifinals. In the third match, Larxia beat Fujai, who beat our home country in the Round of 16, in a 2-1 match that secured their place in the semifinals. Finally, in the fourth match, Tara & Cambray won a 1-0 victory over formidable opponent Arifiyyah, earning the Cambrians their place in the semifinals. To sum up, the teams that advanced to the semifinals include Nieubasria, Nagaraningrad, Larxia and Tara & Cambray. Now let's go over the results of the semifinals!"

    "Let's look at this graphic here. In the first match, Nieubasria's team continues to shine bright as it beats Nagaraningrad in a 2-1 match, securing their place in the grand finals. In the second match, Larxia manages to end the nearly impeccable streak of exceptionally strong opponent Tara & Cambray in a 3-2 victory that secures the former their own place in the grand finals. Now, because both Nieubasria and Larxia have advanced to the grand finals, they will either get first or second place. Nagaraningrad and Tara & Cambray, on the other hand, are both eliminated from contention for the championship, and will either get third or fourth place depending on the results of the match for third place."
    "And that's our two-hour special broadcast covering the WCF1's results from Match Day 5 to the semifinals! Congratulations to Larxia and especially Nieubasria, and good job to Nagaraningrad as well as Tara & Cambray! I'm your host, Approctoflecticus Blubberman, and this was the two-hour special recap broadcast of the 1st World Cup of Football. Stay tuned to SDCSN Channel 3 for coverage of the WCF grand finals and match for third place, and see you tomorrow!"

We are here on Championship Gameday in our World Cup HQ in United Adaikes while our Basric Nationals are showing what they're really made of, and back with us today is friend of the show Mona Madhwain. Welcome back Mona, we have some follow up from yesterday!"
    Mona- "Thank you Trei- we certainly do."
    Trei- "We have made it to the gold-medal match and it is against the skilled Larxian team which just last night defeated Cambria without their star Goalkeeper. There was lots of talk this World Cup about the mystique of Keller and his incredible shutouts-"
    Mona- "I think it is a massive credit to the Cambrian team that the only two teams who managed goals against them are in the championship game. Keller has really defined this Cup, and going forward I will be looking more closely to the early Group Stage games to see who manages a score against Cambria - because they will certainly be a team to watch."
    Trei- "Absolutely. I am sure some of us wanted to see the brother nations of Basria and Cambria duke it out in the championship match, but against the Larxians it is no doubt going to be an intense game."
    Mona- "Trei you know how much I love those funny little traditions and superstitions in sport, right? Well here is one I absolutely enjoy - one of the ushers at the Nephele Pitch for the Championship Game watch party snapped this picture and posted it to social media. For those listening at home, this is a photo of the grand lobby of the Nephele Pitch - those familiar with the Pitch will recognize this is the area which displays the team's international trophies and medals but there is a black velvet curtain draped over the display case!"
    Trei- "Yeah, normally that area is all lit up for big events!"
    Mona- "Normally, yes! But the caption for this image says 'For luck, I guess?! #NB4WCF #NB' and I don't know that I have come across this particular superstition before, but I think it is great - not intrusive like some other ones we've talked about on the show."
    Trei- "Oh, thats our time! Thank you for sharing, Mona, and thank you everyone for tuning in to Sportsball Newszone at 17:00. We will be back with more coverage of the Championship Game of the World Cup of Football, here in United Adaikes, at 18:00.

    "Hello Giovanniland, welcome to our Giovannilandian Football Report presented by myself, Vanessa Desniowynsk! Unfortunately, the tropical storm that hit Giovanniland in the last two days knocked our broadcasting service for quite a lot of time until our technicians could fix it. We're back though, and in this report I will talk about the Round of 16 game in which Giovanniland was eliminated 3-1 by Irador, and also bring some news about the quarter and semifinals. Without further ado, let's go!" 
    "The first half of our match against Irador was quite eventful, just like our previous group stage match against Libterraria. Our striker Gustavo Goethe Zapata scored the first and only Giovannilandian goal of the match in the 10th minute, however that would unfortunately be the only moment of joy for the fans watching here in United Adaikes and back home. Irador then tied the match at the 26th minute, and scored a second goal one minute after stoppage time was declared." Vanessa then showed images of all three goals and some other highlights during the first half. "During the second half," she continued, "Giovanniland increased its scoring attempts in order to try extending the match into extra time and win the game. However, none of these attempts succeeded and, in fact, the only one team to score was Irador, scoring a 3rd goal in the 86th minute. The match soon ended 3-1 for the Iradorians, and the Giovannilandiana Equipa was eliminated."
    After finishing to talk about Giovanniland's game, Vanessa brought some news against other matches. "Besides Giovanniland and Irador, 14 other teams also played in the Round of 16. Three of them were from Aura, namely Santos-Dominius, Arifiyyah, and Zoran, which played against Fujai, Dalimbar, and Libterraria respectively. Unfortunately our Santo-Dominian neighbors were eliminated at the same time as us, but Arifiyyah and Zoran advanced to the quarterfinals—and Arifiyyah even scored 5-2 against the Dalimbari!" Vanessa then proceeded to quarter and semifinals: "Sadly, Aura ran out of luck in the quarterfinals and both remaining Auran countries were eliminated. Nieubasria eliminated Zoran 3-1, while Arifiyyah lost 0-1 to the Cambrians in a close match. Nieubasria and Tara & Cambray then met Nagaraningrad and Larxia in the semifinals respectively, in two Polarii-Andolian clashes. The results? Larxia and Nieubasria advance to the grand final, while T&C and Nagaraningrad will have to battle for the 3rd place."

From Steskia, United Adaikes, we at Santo-Dominian Cable-Satellite Network Channel 3 welcome you back to the second hour of our two-hour special broadcast today covering results from Match Day 5 to the semifinals! Our coverage of WCF1 is brought to you by our generous special sponsor today, PETC, because crustaceans will always be our lovely animal friends, not creatures to be eaten! I, Approctoflecticus Blubberman, will be your host for the entire duration of WCF1."
    "As we went over the results of Match Day 5 and the Round of 16 in the first hour of the broadcast, we shall go over the results of the quarterfinals and the semifinals in the second hour. Now, starting with the four matches in the quarterfinals. Let's look at the graphic here!"

    "In the first match, the Nieubasrians managed to score a 3-1 victory against the nation of Zoran, ending the war-torn nation's strong bid to become champion of WCF1 and propelling their team to the semifinals. I would like to take this moment to express my sincerest condolences on behalf of myself and the entire production crew here at SDCSN Channel 3 for the unfortunate passing of Nieubasria's team captain Earc Velding before their match with Zoran. I'd also like to applaud the Nieubasrian team for bonding together and giving such a strong and exceptional performance in the face of such a terrible tragedy. Quite a show of resilience and perseverance, one that exemplifies the strength of sportsmanship."
    "In the second match, we have Nagaraningrad winning a 2-1 match against their opponents from Irador, thus advancing to the semifinals. In the third match, Larxia beat Fujai, who beat our home country in the Round of 16, in a 2-1 match that secured their place in the semifinals. Finally, in the fourth match, Tara & Cambray won a 1-0 victory over formidable opponent Arifiyyah, earning the Cambrians their place in the semifinals. To sum up, the teams that advanced to the semifinals include Nieubasria, Nagaraningrad, Larxia and Tara & Cambray. Now let's go over the results of the semifinals!"

    "Let's look at this graphic here. In the first match, Nieubasria's team continues to shine bright as it beats Nagaraningrad in a 2-1 match, securing their place in the grand finals. In the second match, Larxia manages to end the nearly impeccable streak of exceptionally strong opponent Tara & Cambray in a 3-2 victory that secures the former their own place in the grand finals. Now, because both Nieubasria and Larxia have advanced to the grand finals, they will either get first or second place. Nagaraningrad and Tara & Cambray, on the other hand, are both eliminated from contention for the championship, and will either get third or fourth place depending on the results of the match for third place."

    Zoranian Civil War Rated #1 TV Drama in Overthinkers

    by Jerry Poole, Head Writer
    AURUM, Overthinkers — The National University of Aurum’s College of Fine Arts released its annual TV ratings study for 1420, and to no one’s surprise, the hard-hitting international drama Civil War Zoran demolished local productions such as Law and Disorder and Joan of Accounting.
    “Political dramas have consistently outperformed other subgenres in Overthinkers by wide margins,” the study stated. “However, Civil War Zoran is the first Auran production to gain this much traction in local markets.”
    The study also notes that international governments’ attempts to involve themselves in the plot generated a lot of interest within Overthinkers. Some Civil War fans have even lobbied Aurum to do the same, though as of press time President Auguste has refused to oblige.
    Civil War has also drawn its fair share of criticism from both the industry and the public. The show’s unorthodox advertising methods, including frequent spots on nightly news broadcasts across several networks, turned off many viewers. Social media sites have regularly blown up with angry calls for networks to not concern themselves with shows from distant lands.
    The producers of Civil War Zoran could not be reached for comment due to ongoing technical difficulties in the area.

Let's look at the results from MD4 to the semifinals and analyse the general situation of the competition."
    "But before we get into the results, I would like to apologise to our viewers on behalf of SDCSN-3 for not covering WCF1 on Match Day 5, the Round of 16 and the Quarterfinals. Unfortunately, funding for the WCF1 coverage division was diverted suddenly to the division covering the Annual Santo-Dominian Crustacean Creatures Race. Now that that amazing - I mean boring - race has concluded, we now have the funding to cover WCF1 again. To fill the gap, this will be a special two-hour broadcast succinctly summing up the results from MD5 to the semifinals! Now, let's first sum up Match Day 5's results, starting with Group A!"

    "In Group A's first match, Nagaraningrad won a 1-0 victory against Teralyon, with both of them advancing to the Round of 16. In the second match, the pummelled Provisional Auran Team was again beaten, this time by Fujai in a 0-4 loss. Fujai advanced to the Round of 16, and the PAT obviously did not. In the third match, the square-off between Fuentana and host country United Adaikes ended in a 2-2 draw, with the former being eliminated and the latter advancing to the Round of 16. Now, let's move to Group B's MD5 results!"

    "In Group B's first match, Larxia handily defeated Fhaengshia in a 5-0 win, with the former advancing to the Round of 16 and the latter getting shut out. In the second match, Pallandole lost to Dalimbar in a 1-3 loss, thus getting eliminated from the WCF1 and helping the latter advance to the Round of 16. In the third match, Libterraria and Giovanniland were both unable to score more points than the other, resulting in a 1-1 tie. The former was unable to get further in the competition, while the latter was able to advance to the Round of 16. Moving on to Group C!"

    "In Group C's first match, Arifiyyah lost to Irador in a 1-2 defeat, but both teams managed to advance to the Round of 16. In the second match, Reçueçn and Italia both couldn't score any points in the match between them, resulting in a 0-0 tie. Neither of them were able to advance to the Round of 16. In the third match, it's another 0-0 draw, this time between Hertfordshire & Jammbo and Zoran! Both the extremely southern nation and the country of civil strife and refugees were able to advance to the Round of 16. Finally, let's get to Group D!"

    "In the first match of Group D, Dilber defeats the football players from Alchera and scores a 1-0 victory. Unfortunately, neither of them were able to go to the Round of 16. In the second match, it's a 1-1 tie, with Tara & Cambray and Nieubasria both unable to get more points than the opposing team. Both of them are able to advance to the Round of 16. In the third match match, our home country Santos-Dominius beat initially strong competitor Badgeria in a 2-0 victory, but both are able to advance to the Round of 16. To sum up, the teams able to go to the Round of 16 include: United Adaikes, Nieubasria, Libterraria, Zoran, Irador, Giovanniland, Badgeria, Nagaraningrad, Larxia, Hertfordshire & Jammbo, Fujai, Santos-Dominius, Tara & Cambray, Teralyon, Arifiyyah and Dalimbar."
    "Now let's go over the results of the Round of 16, starting with the first four matches! Let's look at the graphic here."

    "In the first match of the Round of 16, Nieubasria knocks out host country United Adaikes in a 3-0 match that shows off Nieubasrian prowess in football! In the second match, war-torn Zoran continues its overall strong performance by eliminating Libterraria from WCF1 in a 1-0 victory! In the third match, Irador ends Giovanniland's run in the competition by defeating them in a 3-1 win. In the fourth match, the initially strong Badgeria falls to Nagaraningrad in a 0-2 loss that shuts them out of the Quarterfinals. Now, let's look at the fifth to eighth matches."

    "In the fifth match of the Round of 16, the strong footballers from Larxia kick Hertfordshire & Jammbo out in a 1-0 match. In the sixth match, Fujai barely beats our home country of Santos-Dominius in a heated and close 4-3 match, ending the Santo-Dominian dream of winning the WCF1. In the seventh match, Tara & Cambray's strength once again shows as they beat Teralyon in a 2-0 match that solidifies the former as a competitive team to go up against. In the eighth and final match, Arifiyyah gives Dalimbar a 5-2 smackdown, shutting the Dalimbari out of the Quarterfinals so they themselves can advance."
    "To sum up, the teams that advance from the Round of 16 to the Quarterfinals are: Nieubasria, Zoran, Irador, Nagaraningrad, Larxia, Fujai, Tara & Cambray and Arifiyyah.
