Taking World Cup teams back home!

As we all know, the much-controversial 2022 FIFA World Cup is in full swing in the Qatari capital city of Doha. 14 teams remain in the Round of 16, with the USA meeting a swift end to their WC bid at the hands of the Dutch, and Australia coming up just short in their bid for 30 extra minutes against the Messi-led Argentina squad.

That said, the players and staff are going to need a way to get back home to their countries, and that is exactly what I am doing. As more teams are eliminated from the World Cup, flights to any major airport within the team’s country will leave Hamad International (example: I would take Australia back to Sydney). I will only fly return flights from the Round of 16 onward to the Cup Final.

My first return flight (currently in progress) is taking the Australian men’s national team back home to Sydney Kingsford Airport. This will be an arduous and certainly a time consuming task, but with winter break from college right on the horizon, I should be able to pull it off in plenty of time, and I will update this thread as flights are completed, so follow along (and maybe join along on the Training Server, if you find the time), as I circumnavigate the world with the best football players, coaches and eventually the world champs in tow!

Yes. But Australia isnt really good at soccer like Argentina and some European teams. Australia is more renowned for Rugby League and cricket.

A bit late to update the thread, was watching Poland get rekt by France. I had France winning but simultaneously wanted Poland to upset the defending champs.

Japanese team just landed at Narita Airport. As disappointing as it was to see us lose in penalties, they played really hard and brought us so much hope and joy. Can’t wait until 2026.

The players themselves flew on EK318, while our manager Moriyasu flew on QR806.
