Some interesting comments. Booing the team not the country sounds ok but there's always this division of loyalty in immigrants and soccer makes for sharp choices. Where does the heart lie...back home apparently.

Like the guy who said he was 'forced to come here (to the US)'...a Mexican at heart i guess.

Same thing happens here when the dutch team plays Turkey or Marocco.
Free hugs
