I was under the impression that in Europe, when a rival sports team wins, especially if they're foreigners, it's expected to decry them and their entire people and nation?
"Oh, those dirty Portueguese! They had the refs on the take!"
"Stupid fucking Russians, bunch of drunken sheep fucking retards!"
"Goddamnit, how could we lose to a bunch of Frenchmen?"
I mean, we're talking the part of the world where RIOTS break out over the outcomes of soccer matches...
