I'm generally not a massive fan of sports unless they involve horses, and I apologise if I end up taking this thread off topic a little, but I'll be watching because I'm curious to see if any teams will actually carry out their threats to either walk off or not play if faced with racist abuse.

Saying that, it's ridiculous that the FA should also make that promise while one of the players selected for England is currently awaiting trial for racist abuse - FIFA, UEFA and the FA have long accepted a ridiculous double standard concerning racism in the sport, and it's about time they actually did something to stamp it out instead of condemning it with empty words.

As for my own team preference, Deutschland über alles.
