Jere Longman and Sarah Lyall, A British Soccer Team? What’s That? Say Scots

Quote:
"there is no such thing as a British soccer team. Instead * * * there are
instead individual teams representing Britain’s fractious, proud and
fiercely competitive constituent nations — namely England, Wales, Scotland
and Northern Ireland.
"Britain has not played men’s soccer in the Olympics in more than half a
century, since the 1960 Rome Games, or even tried to qualify since the early
1970s. The British women have never entered a team since the Olympic
tournament for women began in 1996.
"While the International Olympic committee recognizes Britain as a combined
team in all sports, FIFA, soccer’s world governing body, recognizes England
, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland as separate teams. And there lies the
heart of the controversy.
Note:
(a) Following right after quotation 1 above, paragraph 3 starts with the
sentence: "Nor are the hypersensitive soccer federations in the non-English
nations exactly clamoring to have their players compete side by side with
players from their bitter rival, England."
The "English" in "non-English nations" refers to not teh language but the
nationality; so non-English nations means Wales, Scotland and Northern
Ireland.
(b) Regan is an Irish surname, shortened from O'Regan. In fact, Regan and
Ryan (one of the most common surnames in Ireland; itself was shortened from
O'Ryan) were derived from an identical ancient surname.
(b) The report further says, "Modern soccer began here in 1863."

(d) Members of FIFA, China, Taiwan and Hong Kong are under official names

Chinese Taipei, and
Hong Kong, respectively.
