[World Cup 2018] Europe’s National Teams by Racial Ancestry


Inspired by comments made on the Steve Sailer blog on the World Cup in June 2018

The World Cup, Europe’s National Teams, & the Race Question

Europe was given 14 slots in the 32-team FIFA World Cup in (mid-June to mid-July) 2018. The 23-man rosters (squads) were announced in early June.

As many have noticed, some of Europe’s national teams are more “national” than others.

I’ve taken a quite detailed looked at the ethnocultural origins for all the players on all fourteen of Europe’s national teams (322 players). From material available online. Ethno-cultural analysis for players is, in some cases, just one line and in others up to hundreds of words for exceptionally exotic cases. Each country’s racial-political situation is briefly commented upon in each post’s Analysis section and how it relate to that country’s team’s racial makeup. (France is the stand-out, with its majority-Black team; full-Whites are one-quarter of the team.)

This post will be a grand summary of each team’s racial ancestry, taken one at a time. See individual links for more information on any team or player. See the bottom for some brief comments on the relevance of this effort.

Brief Comments:

There are some surprises here. The absence of Muslims may be one. I comment on this at more length in the post on Sweden’s almost-all-White, Muslim-less team. Sweden, sadly, has serious race-political problems and could plausibly have an Islamic majority the middle of this century (hopefully not). Yet watching this marquee quasi-patriotic event, there’s no sign of Muslims, and almost no sign of non-Europeans at all, on the national team…

At the beginning of this project, I speculated that the less-White teams would inevitably lose support, over time, among White Europeans, perhaps softening their interest in this particular competition in general, or perhaps shifting their support (maybe quietly) to one or more “Whiter” teams. I have no way of finding evidence for that one way or another, but I would like to repeat the proposal of such as an idea.

The biggest single lesson of this study is something that ought to be obvious but somehow is not to many. It is simply this: Immigration has consequences.

Quite a few Western people genuinely do not seem to — understand? believe? — that immigration does, in fact, have consequences; average people, decent people, rather, genuinely seem to believe something like this: “[Our Nation] will always exist as it always has, no matter the number of refugees/immigrants we take in. They are not a threat!” This is puzzling thinking, but seems predominant. As cold-water on the face wakes a man mentally sluggish with sleep, so might a glance at the France or England World Cup rosters…. Immigration has consequences.

(See the individual country posts for more commentary on the racial-political situations specific to those countries and how the World Cup ties in.)


A tweet to end on:

England: 48% of team roster is full-White, dropping to 40% for field players (non-goalkeepers) (8 Whites of 20 on roster).

What would the man waiting to be evacuated back to England from Dunkirk have thought in 1940?
