Did not watch any of their games but yeah I was like .... Madagascar wooow...

Yest I watched the first full game between Gha and Tun... imo a very surprise win for the North Africans...
I was rooting for Ghana in respect of our old boy Kuffour...

Now that both Egypt & Cameroon are gone as well I just hope that Ivory Coast don't win it.... my hate for them started with Drogba ... even before that fateful day in May 2012

I watched parts of Ghana-Tunisia yesterday too as it was on in the background at the pub. Interesting about Madagascar... I'll try to catch a game of theirs.

Purely from a cricketing sense I have a lot of time for RSA and wish them well in every sport.

Don't know the situation in France well enough, perhaps the north Africans are anti French. We did however have a similar debate during the cricket world cup with the Asian supporters supporting their country of origin rather than England. Most people have no problem with it (and cricket is a more tolerant game than football anyway). We must also remember that the Indian subcontinent and Francophone North Africa have a similar past, being previously colonised by countries which are now welcoming them in. Those wounds do not heal easily.

Of course not... France are paying the price for their past and present crimes...

However having said that if there was a real Pres he would send them all back to Algeria Tunisia and Morocco.

Why?

What exactly is wrong with supporting another NT?

Don’t you support Germany?

I mean I don’t have to point out tge hypocrisy YET AGAIN, do I?
- Rangnick or ten Hag in!
- Bring a DM, a winger (Sané) and Havertz!
- Get a REAL sports director (Rangnick?)!
- Keep Hoeness and Rummenigge far away from the team!

First off my support to the NM cooled off ... unless they play the teams I dislike...

Secondly... my first team is Malta...

To give your comment some weight we may compare this to when the Maltese fanatically support either Ita or Eng

But we shall not forget that none of these have anything to do with those countries unlike the North Africans in France

Well over 99% of football fans in Malta support another NT. During the World Cup, Malta is full of flags of teams people support, which are mainly England, Italy, Brazil, Germany and Holland. Don't let ramsej84 fool you he doesn't support Germany. I was next to him in Germany vs Italy 2012 as well as 2010, 2012 and 2013 CL finals and I can attest that he was much more nervous during Germany vs Italy than any Bayern CL final.

Do the Maltese go to destroy shop windows, looting, fighting with Police etc?
No...
Thus say a thing or two no?
