In csgo there is no such thing and the people that have a french flag and support a french team are usually considered delusional fanboys. But in football it’s the norm. I never understood the affection people feel for teams from their own country. I mean, yeah, you were born in the same place. Yeah, they are representing your country. But even if they win, what the hell changes? It’s still just a game. When it comes to countries, the only situations in which I see a reason to celebrate are, for instance, when the minimum wage is increased, or when some other important bill that will change things for the good is passed. But rooting for my country in sports? Why would I do that? It’s just a game, there is nothing political in it.
I tend to support the teams that I enjoy watching the most or teams that have the most interesting story/personalities instead of teams or players that are from my country.
And yeah, I understand why football is so popular but personally I don't like it
