    They are like the City or PSG (no offense to our PSG fans on this forum) of China. A team is built with nothing but money. The owners are disgustingly shady (by the way the main owner, Xu Jiayin recently went to Madrid to meet with Florentino to setup some sort of joint venture with Real Madrid. No wonder. Those two truly belong to each other.) and they constantly bloat about dominating domestic Chinese football and stuff. And prior to the recent Asian Champions League final game, they swapped their main sponsor's name (Dongfeng Nissan) with a life insurance subsidery of their own company's name on their jersey and they so blatantly defended themselves even though they clearly breached the contract.

    A thoroughly disgusting team. Most Chinese football fans outside of that team's fanbase don't like them. And they want to play the Chinese card? They put the Chinese flag on their jersey this time but heck, they don't represent us at all.

    So you are a Chinese citizen or a foreigner living there? As far as I know, many Chinese fans do see Evergrande as their national icons. Even the richest man there, the owner of Alibaba, is a shareholder of the club. Is it true?

    Most likely ,but it happened twice in last 5 tournaments that the S.American teams good beaten in Semi's ,though in both cases it was by African team
    2010 Mazembe has beaten Internacional and 2013 Raja Casablanca (Hosts) has beaten Atlético Mineiro .
    I would obviously be happy if all we had to do is to play against couple of Asian teams to win the tournament

    Beijing-born, Beijing-bred here. I wouldn't say Evergrande is a national icon because it is a tainted one and it is just one of many clubs in China, and happens to be the most successful one mainly because of the amount of money the owners poured in. It has a lot of supporters in Guangzhou and the province it is in, but you will hardly find any supporters outside that region. Yes, right now many Chinese fans are supporting its CWC run because they think it represents Chinese football. Bah. That is tribalism to me.

    Yeah, Ma Yun, the founder of Alibaba has 40% share of that club. One more thing that made dislike that club, personally.

    This Sanfrecce Hiroshima side who is playing their third game in the last couple of days is absolutely dominating River Plate. 4 massive chances bottled. River Plate is lucky to still be in this. I'm feeling sad for the thousands of River fans travelling this far just to see this. Heard some sold their cars, getting loans etc. to travel to Japan.

    I wouldn't be surprised, after the world cup a lot of argentinians were stuck in rio because they didn't have a single peso left to go back, the embassy had to organize buses for them.

    They are absolutely fanatic about their teams, all of them, from boca/river to the last team of 4th division.
    The Internet is full of tribute videos with some version of the title "Messi doesn't dive" a trait rare in a sport where players roll around on the ground like gunshot victims when an opponent so much as breathes on them.

    Theories abound about why Messi won't fall, about his character or his respect for the game, but I think it's much simpler. If he dives, he loses the ball.

    Well I guess I now understand better why Diego is God for them and Leo is not so much admired! Their love towards their team and desire for them to win it all outweighs their objectivity perhaps? Because, selling cars, taking loans, etc to attend a freaking football match are not very family-friendly ideas!

    Definitely wouldn't put it past them, when I was leaving in buenos aires I had 4 friends that had their team's badge tattooed on the chest, and i'm not even talking boca or river, but teams like Huracan, Estudiantes etc .. that never ever ever win anything and play horrible football.

    Truth though is they talk a big game but they don't know much or care that much even about football, most of them wouldn't even watch the champions league or a world cup game that didn't have Argentina in it; so I don't really consider them football fans, more fans of themselves and the team they like, but football in general nope.


    On an unrelated note :
