haha i finally doodled some latin americans-Costa Rica, Chile and Brazil- thanks to those people who messaged me with info!

yeah football rivalries are intense hehe. Anyway, in case it’s unclear- the European countries are drawing their battle lines based on language- the Germanic and Latin (Romance) family. English, Dutch, German etc are all Germanic languages. Spanish, Portuguese, French, Italian are languages with Latin roots. Belgium and Switzerland have bigger majorities that speak Germanic languages, but they have sizeable minorities that speak French, Dutch (Belgium) and also Italian (Switzerland).

And well, the Latin Americans as you know mostly speak a mixture of Spanish and Portuguese in addition to their indigenous languages. But they have very much got their own character :D Football wise, Chile sounds like a sinister mastermind because he’s the one who beat defending champions Spain and booked his ticket to the Round of 16. Costa Rica was considered an underdog at first but just defeated Italy (2006 champions), and Brazil is possibly going to face Netherlands in the second round.

the-dragons-thoughts:

Imagine finding a dragon egg one day, and it hatches in your house and thinks you’re its mom. Then the next morning you wake up and find this mini dragon has gathered all the lose change and shiny objects in your house in a pile, and is gnawing on a nickel. And then when you take it out for walks, it picks up every coin it sees cause its a hoarder. And your house is eventually full of coins. And you are rich. And have a dragon.
