  1. “How many counties are in this country??”


    • +ashevillecat They’re just territories. We get to govern them but they don’t really have the rights that the US citizens do. It’s pretty sad if you ask me….

    • Of course they’re just territories…and I’m pretty sure that NO state recognizes FIFA as any legal or political authority. However just as in Wales or Scotland, where people identify as both Welsh/Scots and yet are British citizens, people in these places are both American citizens and yet identify as a separate nation, ethnically. Meanwhile several sovereign states (e.g. Monaco, Vatican City, etc.) are not members of FIFA. Go figure.

    • 4 sir 😂

    • Y’all saying 4, i thought northern ireland wasnt a country, just a province,i guess? ? Ik im too late too 😂

    “How many countries are in this country?”
    This video is great and I’m a football (soccer) fan myself.

  3. I once watched American football and I was shocked by all the cheating. They were picking the ball up and running with it and the referee did not even notice. Furthermore they were not even dressed properly, they looked like they were made up of motorcycle messengers and did not even bother to remove their helmets. I suppose it might have been better if they had got proper things to play with, the goalposts had bits sticking out of them like in rugby and the ball seemed to have no air in it – in any case it looked as though someone had sat on it. I have to say that it was even worse than watching Newcastle United. Until this cheating stops, I certainly won’t be either watching or playing.

  4. “Wales? Wait, that’s a different country?”

    “Yes and no.”

    The best

  5. “West Ham” = Pickup trucks!

  6. Coach Lasso, return please, we need you

  7. “also Dallas Cowboys”
    killing’ me everytime!


  9. i didnt realize this video came out like 2 years ago until i saw Gareth Bale

  10. “How many countries are in this country?” hahaha

      Mikey Dunne no Ali has it right, Northern Ireland is a province of the UK but Ulster is a province of Ireland. Phlizz Gibraltar has a national team to but isn’t technically its own country

    • Tarcísio Reed July 26, 2017 @ 1:39 pm

      this is so american hahaha

    • Dáire Magorrian I’m from Northern Ireland, and we literally have the same structure of government as Scotland and Wales.
      If your gonna consider them to be countries you have to consider Northern Ireland to be a country as well.

    • Andrew Davison its not about what I consider it to be, look it up. It’s officially defined as a province of the UK. Ps I’m also from the North. An Dún

    • I looked it up, and the UK is a sovereign country, similar to France and Germany.
      Northern Ireland is considered a Statelet, and Wales a princibility.
      Scotland and England are considered countries, but its confusing.
      Its like they are seperate countries, but actually the same the same country at the same time.
      It seems to be an honoury thing that their seperate, but until they go independent, have no real power outside of the British parliement.
      What part of Ireland are you from. I’m from Ballymena, Co. Antrim

  11. I’ve lived to see a black president, I just might see the first female president, yet I highly doubt I’ll live to see the first American head coach in the premiership.

  12. Now there is an American coach in BPL

  13. Ha! How many countries are in this country!?

  14. 2 ties in the NFL this year

    • whyyo whyyo oh yeah, I know that. But that’s in La Liga, where there’s 3 good teams and the rest are horrendous. In English football though, which is what I was talking about since this video is about a English football, it’s all very equal. 4th tier teams have beaten top league teams in cup games. In the leagues anyone club can win the league. Literally anyone, like last year with Leicester City

    • Playing defensive doesn’t equal to playing for the draw, they will still try to win the game. And also la liga is waaay better than the prem, results don’t lie

    • 2 ties…and Donald Trump became president. So the apocalypse comment looks to become true.

    • Maddy D There are way more than 3 good teams in la liga.

  15. Why is everyone finding this video now? It’s three years old.

  16. this could be a TV show I would watch for 22 minutes once a week for two to three seasons

  17. “How many countries are in this country?!”
    Has to be the funniest line of the whole skit.

  18. Ties and no playoffs. Why do you even do this? haha.

    • But then how do you become the champion?

    • @Charlie Lamont By being the highest ranked team in the league at the end of the season. There are tournaments like the FA Cup that are separate from being league champions, but neither one requires a playoff

    • elvis316 elvis. Unlike the US, the rest of the world does RELEGATION AND PROMOTION! You can have a team /franchise being utter Shite, a complete failure for years , they stay in the league. In fact, they get REWARDED with first picks in the Draft.

      Also , they have cap salaries, making it easier to compete

    • +Christy Dolan You just described most major American sports. Baseball has no salary cap. Damn Yankees.

    • the cap salaries does make for a generally more interesting league and a realistic chance for any team to win look at any football league other than the premier league and the same 1 or 2 teams win every year and have done so for decades

  19. This video is old how am I just seeing this now.. 😂😂😂

  20. “Wales? Is that another country?” “Yes and no.” – That part was hilarious.
