The NAFA announced this morning that the 2021 Confederations Cup will be played in New Zealand.  The rugby mad nation is one that has been an improving one in soccer in recent years, punctuated by an unbeaten run at the 2010 World Cup in South Africa.  The All Whites very narrowly failed to qualify for Russia 2018, losing to Peru 2-0 in their international last chance play-off.  The women’s team, the Football Ferns, are a regular fixture, having qualified for each of the last 4 World Cups.  Auckland, Wellington, Dundedin, and Christchurch were named as host cities, but up to 4 more could be added before the tournament next summer (which will actually be held during winter in NZ).

 

Master Hand also announced that while the 2022 World Cup won’t be played in Qatar, it will be played somewhere within the Asian Football Confederation, which after Confederations Cup New Zealand 2021, will be the only continental group to have never hosted a NAFA tournament.  For the first time ever, the NAFA is going to decide the host by fan vote.  Starting now and going through the conclusion of the World Cup Final on Sunday, fans will be able to vote for one of 10 options.  The choices are:

 

Japan 🇯🇵
South Korea 🇰🇷
China 🇨🇳
Australia 🇦🇺
Indonesia 🇮🇩
Vietnam 🇻🇳
Thailand 🇹🇭
India 🇮🇳

Uzbekistan 🇺🇿
United Arab Emirates 🇦🇪
 

The country with the most votes will be named NWC 2022 host

Nintendo World Cup 2020 Semifinals - National TV Gamecast 

 

Johto 2-4 Green Hill Zone - Stade de la Reunificacion - Douala - Blaze 13’, Morty 35’, Sonic 45’, Meganium 57’, Amy Rose 81’, Silver 88’

Sarasaland 2-2 Koholint - Sululere National Stadium - Lagos - Waluigi 26’, Richard 54’, Marin 65’(pen), Hoiyohoi 78’

 

9:45pm Est - The matches kick off!

 

4’ - Early warning shot for Koholint as Daisy tries her luck from 25 yards.  It whizzes left of the near post.

 

6’ - Yellow card for Martha, who upends Daisy as she attempts to get out on the breakaway.  Definitely intentional but maybe the right move as Sarasaland would’ve had a 4v3 counter

 

8’ - Raikou picks up a yellow card for a rash challenge against Shadow.  The black hedgehog is down and needs treatment before continuing.  The electric dog might be lucky to stay on the pitch there.  VAR checks the play but does not overturn the referee decision

 

13’ - First goal of the night and it comes in Douala.  Silver makes a great pass to free up Sonic on the right, and he crosses it to Blaze who buries it at the back post for 1-0

 

15’ - Yellow card for Tokotoko, who fouls Richard as he tries to escape down the left.  
 

19’ - Grim Creaper gets free and fires from just outside the box.  Tatanga makes a brilliant save to tip the ball onto the crossbar.  Dethl eventually collects the rebound but his effort is blocked by the defender and cleared

 

24’ - yellow card for Shadow, who aggressively slide tackles Faulkner to prevent a counterattack.  Ugly challenge that.  Both Johto and GHZ are playing very physically tonight, if this continues we might see a player or two kicked out at some point

 

26’ - Sarasaland win a corner down the left.  Daisy takes it, and the ball comes to Waluigi, who has a free header from 7 yards out and he doesn’t miss from there.  1-0 Sarasaland.

 

35’ - Johto is on the scoreboard.  Typhlosion makes a brilliant run down the left and cuts in along the endline and finds Morty, who has an easy tap in for 1-1

 

40’ - Tarin picks up a yellow card for a foul against Wario.  Wario gets into Tarin’s face afterward as he felt the challenge was dangerous from behind.  The referee ultimately cards Wario as well for some colorful language.  
 

45’ - Green Hill Zone grab the lead again just before halftime as Tails wins a free kick just outside the area.  Sonic steps up and drills the kick over the wall and in.  Brilliant.  2-1

 

48’ - Sarasaland and Koholint both look more lively coming out of the dressing room.  Both teams had great chances to score in the first two minutes of the half. Sarasaland hasn’t been scored on in the last 135 minutes of play.  If they maintain that they’ll be onto the final

 

54’ - Koholint has tied the match in Lagos.  Marin finds Richard inside the area, who quick turns and beats Tatanga with a hot grounder into the bottom right for 1-1

 

57’ - Johto refuses to give up.  Whitney is able to win a corner down the left.  She takes the corner and Meganium gets up and nails it past Eggman for 2-2

 

61’ - yellow card for Knuckles now...he slide tackles Clair who immediately gets up and pushes the Echidna.  They get into a headfirst shouting match and Clair is yellow carded as well.

 

65’ - well this game has now turned around completely!  Marin beats two Sarasaland defenders before getting brought down in the area by Dragonzamasu.  He’s booked for that and a penalty is given.  Marin gets Tatanga to go the wrong way and she buries it.  2-1 to Koholint.

 

69’ - Bad turn of events for Johto as Raikou brings down Amy Rose following a giveaway by Entei.  The electric dog sees yellow for the second time, which means a red card and ejection.  Johto down to 10 players

 

73’ - Didn’t take long for GHZ to take advantage of the man advantage as Sonic passes to Tails in the area and he is fouled rashly by Faulkner.  He’s given a straight red card, and now Johto is down to 9 players!  Amazingly though, it’s still tied as Feraligatr saves Tails’s penalty kick.  How is Johto going to survive playing 9v11 though?

 

76’ - Sarasaland battles back and finds an equalizer.  Daisy makes a run down the left and passes to Totomesu who got forward on the overlap.  His shot is saved  but the ball is recycled to Wario, who puts in a great ball for Hoiyohoi to head in at the back post.  2-2

 

81’ - Green Hill Zone scoring with a 2-man advantage seemed inevitable and it does happen.  Amy Rose applies the finishing touch after Silver’s pass finds her at the back post.  3-2

 

85’ - Sarasaland nearly go in front as Wario gets away and fires from 20 yards, but his shot caroms off the post.  Near escape for Koholint.

 

88’ - Silver scores on a strike from near the penalty spot.  That’s ballgame.  Green Hill Zone is headed to the World Cup Final

 

11:15pm - End of regulation time.  Green Hill Zone are in the final for the 2nd World Cup running.  Will it be a rematch of the 2018 final, or will Koholint crash the festivities?  Extra time coming

 

102’ - Koholint nearly has a breakaway.  Richard plays a near perfect pass to Dethl.  Dragonzamasu is the only defender close by and he fouls him. The referee gives a second yellow and thus a red.  Dragonzamasu is ejected.  The free kick is close from Marin but goes wide right.  
 

109’ - Sarasaland have put pretty much everybody behind the ball now as they try to get the match to penalties.  Koholint try to find a winner and they get a decent effort from Dethl that swerves toward the bottom corner but there’s not enough juice on it and Tatanga saves

 

111’ - Daisy is yellow carded for time wasting

 

113’ - Now it’s Richard that tries his luck, but his shot flies just slightly over the bar from 25 yards.  
 

115’ - Totomesu is yellow carded for time wasting

 

11:45pm - try as they might, Koholint wasn’t able to find a goal in the 18 minutes with the man advantage, as Sarasaland sees out extra time and makes it to penalties.

 

guys, I’m going to need your 5 choices for penalty kick takers

 

Penalty shootout:

 

Daisy -

Dethl -
Wario -

Richard -

Waluigi -

Shopkeeper -
Totomesu -

Grim Creaper -
Tatanga -

Marin -

 

Koholint win 4-3 on penalties, advance to NWC Final vs Green Hill Zone

Early action but nothing yet.

 

Got the lead but be careful guys. Don't want any ejections and red cards bed te the final match if we get there.

 

Down a goal but not out yet. Keep it close.

 

Good job tying it back up. Now let's get that ticket to the finals punched.

 

So Green Hill Zone is back in the finals. Now to see if we face them again. Fight for it guys. If it takes extra time or penalties so be it.

 

Ok guys. 30 more minutes to get a winning goal of else we go to penalties. Do what you have to do to win, aside from doing anything stupid that gets you ejected that is.

 

Well, no Dragonzamasu for the final or third place game. At least we're still in it though.

 

Daisy

Wario

Waluigi

Totomesu

Tatanga

 

No repeat for us. Get ready for the third place game then.

*Watches the games*  

 

As long as long the right teams are playing, I don't mind who wins this. Good luck, all of you!

 

*looks at the extra inning* 

 

AH MAN THIS WILL BE FUN! 

 

Dethl, Richard, Mabe Village Shopkeeper, Grim Creeper, and Marin.

Nintendo World Cup 2020 Final - National TV Gamecast

 

Sarasaland 3-1 Johto - Stade Amidou Ahdijo - Yaounde - Daisy 23’, 28’, Entei 49’, Waluigi 75’

Koholint 0-2 Green Hill Zone - Paul Biya Stadium - Yaounde - Sonic 45’, 90’

 

9:45pm - the matches kick off

 

8’ - it’s been a cagey start in both matches.  Shadow lets fly from 25 yards but fails to hit the target

 

10’ - Marin takes a speculative shot from outside the area.  It one bounces to Eggman, who corrals it

 

17’ - Koholint’s being in this final tonight after having never qualified for an NWC previously is rather remarkable.  They are huge underdogs on paper, any scenario for them to win probably requires an early goal.  Dethl tries his luck but misses the target

 

23’ - Across town, Sarasaland have the first goal at the Ahdijo.  Daisy wins a free kick just outside the area, and takes it herself.  She loops one over the wall and back down and in for 1-0.  She gives a quick African dance by the corner flag in celebration

 

28’ - Didn’t take long, only 5 minutes after scoring Sarasaland double their lead.  After a giveaway by Faulkner, Daisy gets the pass from Tokotoko and deposits the ball into the net, her 2nd of the match
 

30’ - Green Hill Zone finally getting going towards goal.  A 10 pass sequence ends up with Silver taking the shot but it’s blocked by Tarin.  Eventually Tails corrals it and shoots, but Master Stalfos has it covered

 

35’ - Yellow card for Bow-Wow, who takes out Knuckles as he looked to turn and run through the midfield

 

38’ - Johto nearly pull one back as Whitney gets inside the defense and pulls the trigger from just inside the area.  Tatanga dives and makes a great diving stop.  The corner afterward is cleared by Hoiyohoi

 

45’ - Right on the stroke of halftime Green Hill Zone takes the lead.  A pass is picked off by Amy Rose, who plays a fantastic pass up to Sonic, who is through on goal.  Master Stalfos comes out but Sonic chips him for 1-0.  
 

49’ - Johto pulls one back!  A corner kick is won by Whitney on the left.  Jasmine takes the corner and Entei gets up highest to head the ball past Tatanga.  It’s game on for 3rd place.

 

53’ - Richard has been quiet tonight but he gets loose for the first time and is able to fire from 24 yards.  Eggman gets a good read on it and punches it away.  If Koholint can score this game could change completely

 

57’ - yellow card for Tails, who loses the ball and then lunges in on Marin trying to get it back.  Poor decision there by the kitsune.

 

62’ - Master Stalfos makes an incredible save against Shadow from point blank range to keep the game close.  Shadow had gotten the pass from Blaze near the penalty spot.  He slams his fist into the turf in disgust

 

66’ - yellow card for Shadow, who got nudged off by Tarin as he entered the area.  He wanted a penalty but was booked for diving instead.  The hedgehog is furious.  GHZ’s manager sees this and decides to sub him off the pitch

 

70’ - Now it’s Koholint nearly scoring, as Grim Creaper gets around the defense and gets a shot off from inside the D.  Eggman leaps and makes a great save to keep it out.

 

75’ - Sarasaland restore the two goal lead  as Daisy takes a pass and cuts down toward the end line before nutmegging the defender and getting into the 18.  She then crosses to Waluigi who heads it home at the back post for 3-1

 

79’ - Oh boy, big drama with the NWC on the line.  Marin takes a throughball from Richard and he’s through on goal.  As he’s about to decide whether to shoot or round the keeper, Blaze grabs her and basically does an American football tackle on her.  Blaze is red carded and kicked out.  The free kick is taken by Marin and it hits off the crossbar.  So close, but Koholint has the man advantage now

 

84’ - Green Hill Zone has all 10 players behind the ball now.  Koholint doing whatever they can to find an equalizer.

 

87’ - Marin fires from 20 yards.  Eggman makes another save, the ball caroms off two defenders and over to Dethl, who shoots but the shot is blocked by Knuckles out for a corner.  The corner is corralled by Eggman

 

88’ - Eggman is carded after holding onto the ball for way too long 

 

90’ - Throwing almost everyone forward, Koholint presses so hard for the tying goal but in doing so left themselves open for a counterattack, and it’s Dethl’s pass that’s intercepted by Knuckles.  He fires it to Amy Rose who starts a 4 on 2 counterattack...it ultimately ends up with Sonic finishing the ball into the lower left corner.  That’s going to do it, first world champions in baseball, and now world champions in soccer.  It’s officially a Sonic Summer.

 

11:20pm - full time

Good start guys. At least we can get third place.

 

(So with Qatar not hosting the 2022 NWC, who won the fan vote?)

 

And another goal. Not bad.

 

Still lead Johto by a goal at least. Don't let them tie it.

 

A much needed insurance goal has come. Good job and keep at it. Third place wouldn't be bad for the defending NWC champions.

 

GHZ better hope that move didn't cost them. No one to blame but themselves if they lose.

 

What a time to be in the Sonic realm eh? May not have won the NWS, but a VGWBC and NWC win aren't bad either.

Sarasaland may have finished third in the 2020 NWC, but early reports from fans who attended the final three matches may make them feel like they've won.

 

Health officials have stated that fans arriving from Nigeria and Cameroon didn't show any symptoms of the coronavirus but are undergoing 14 day quarantine procedures out of an abundance of caution.

 

"The fans who attended the matches made sure to follow the guidelines that were in place and from what we've seen, no one has tested positive," health officials said at a press conference earlier today. "The fact that fans could attend a sporting event in the human world in the day and age of a pandemic that were in right now is a small step towards hopefully returning to the human world without any restrictions, whether in the NBL, MKRA or the 2021 Confederations Cup in New Zealand or the 2022 NWC."

The NAFA released the results of the 2022 NWC fan vote Tuesday morning.  They did did so in waves, eliminating 5 nations, then 2 more, until the 3 finalists were revealed to be Japan, Korea, and China.  In the end, the 2022 NWC host was, with 34% of the total vote, Japan.  Korea came 2nd with 25%, China third with 19%.  Australia was the only other nation above 10%, finishing with 12%.

 

Green Hill Zone will look to defend their title at Nintendo World Cup Japan 2022.  Many cities within the country are preparing to bid to host matches already.  It would appear that Tokyo, Yokohama, Kyoto, and Osaka are locks to be selected.  Beyond that, it’s more of a guessing game.  It’s expected that Sapporo, Niigata, Sendai, Chiba, Shizuoka, Nagoya, Kobe, Okayama, Hiroshima, Kitakyushu, and Nagasaki will all put in bids to host matches.
