British power analysis agency helps African teams with soccer game ‘Football Manager’

There has actually been a case where the popular soccer simulation game ‘Football Manager’ was used to help strengthen the African national team.

On the 16th (local time), the British daily Guardian introduced the case of Jack Coles, a power analyst in the English Professional Football Championship (second division), who voluntarily cooperated with the Guinea-Bissau national football team in West Africa.

Coles said that while playing Football Manager, he learned that there were many players from all over the world who had dual citizenship due to reasons such as their parents' immigration.

Coles told the Guardian, "At first, I was looking into the relationship between Curaçao and the Netherlands, and then I realized that there are a lot of people with multiple nationalities."

He said that he discovered Guinea-Bissau while looking for the country that would benefit most from gathering players from all over the world. 바카라사이트

In fact, the Dutch territory of Curaçao has recently significantly strengthened its national team by taking advantage of the dual nationality system of the International Federation of Football Associations (FIFA).

According to FIFA regulations, if a player has no history of playing for the adult national team, he or she may, subject to conditions, play for a national team formed by a soccer association of another nationality.

Coles is said to have contacted the Guinea-Bissau Football Association through the recruitment and employment platform LinkedIn and offered to hand over the data he had obtained through Football Manager and the list of players he had contacted.

The Guinea-Bissau Football Association expressed doubts as to why a British man with no connections would provide help for free, but soon accepted Coles' offer, the Guardian reported.

Football Manager is a game where gamers become managers and manage a team.

Gamers select players, organize and train coaching staff, and create tactics down to the smallest detail before playing the game.

Almost all aspects of running a soccer team are included in the game, including fighting with star players and team owners and communicating with supporters who get angry when their performance drops, and has been loved by soccer fans since the first installment of the series was released in 1993.

In particular, the accurate implementation of tens of thousands of players, even those in countries on the outskirts of soccer, with dozens of abilities, including nationality, physical condition, and soccer skills, is considered the 'highlight' of this game.

Kohl's utilized this database.

Guinea-Bissau, a former Portuguese colony with a population of 2 million, is ranked 106th in the FIFA rankings.

From the 1994 Confederation of African Football (CAF) Nations Cup to 2015, they failed to make it to the preliminary round, but from 2017 to this year, they made it to the finals for four consecutive competitions.

Frederic Mendy, who played as a foreign player for Ulsan Hyundai and Jeju United in the K-League in 2016 and 2017, played the field wearing a Guinea-Bissau uniform.

Coles said the subsequent process was a tedious task.

After verifying the player through Football Manager, the agent's contact information is contacted through LinkedIn, etc.

Most of the time there was no response, but there were cases where people were contacted and asked what Coles had to say.

Coles explains that many of them were reluctant to join the uncompetitive national team, but as a few showed interest, it became easier to persuade other players to use them as a precedent.

The representative example cited by Coles is Carlos Mane, born in 1994.

Having played for Sporting (Portugal), Stuttgart, and Union Berlin (Germany), he represented Portugal in his age group, but failed to advance to the adult national team.

Mane, who eventually chose the Guinea-Bissau national team, made his debut in a match against Sierra Leone on the 12th of last month, playing 93 minutes and leading the team to a 2-1 victory.
