Be a Pro


All right - time to start one of these. My friend's copy of FM is giving me no problems, so I've decided to start a BAP, just like everyone else.

This is not going to be like your average BAP - here's the twist.

Your player cannot be from any one of the nations occupying the top 50 ranks in the world (as of FIFA's official April 2014 ranking)

These are the top 50 countries -

Spain, Germany, Portugal, Colombia, Uruguay, Argentina, Brazil, Switzerland, Italy, Greece, England, Belgium, USA, Chile, Netherlands, France, Ukraine, Russia, Mexico, Croatia, Ivory Coast, Scotland, Denmark, Egypt, Bosnia, Sweden, Algeria, Ecuador, Slovenia, Serbia, Romania, Honduras, Armenia, Costa Rica, Panama, Czech Rep., Iran, Ghana, Turkey, Austria, Venezuela, Cape Verde Islands, Peru, Hungary, Nigeria, Slovakia, Japan, Wales, Tunisia, Cameroon

This BAP will be a challenge to be determine whether a single player can lead his country to any sort of success. This means that anyone who applies must use a different nationality to those who applied before.

Just for convenience, here are the nations already taken:
Republic of Ireland
Albania
India
Norway
Montenegro
Northern Ireland
Poland
Finland
Estonia
Faroe Islands
Iceland
South Korea
Cuba
Paraguay
Indonesia
Australia
New Zealand
Morocco
South Africa
Canada
Jamaica
Congo-Brazzaville
Israel
Mauritania
Belarus

You can consult the official rankings here
The FIFA/Coca-Cola World Ranking - Ranking Table - FIFA.com

Please use the following template to apply :

Name:
Date of Birth (day/month):
City of Birth:
Nation (read rules above):
Languages (max.3):
Height (centimetres):
Weight (kilograms):

Position:
Secondary Position (optional):
Best mental attributes (2) (not determination):
Best physical attributes (2) (not natural fitness):
Best technical attributes (3):
Strongest foot (right/left):
Preferred moves (max.2):
Order from high to low (ambition, loyalty, professionalism):

Favoured clubs (max.2):
Disliked clubs (max.2):

I will accept the first 15-20 entries. When I decide to stop accepting the applications, I'll create my own player as well and then start the BAP.

I will decide on a ranking and reward system later.

Mate, both Denmark and Wales are in the top 50 - and if you're choosing more than one nation, that you be declared for internationals for one of them.

One more thing, mate - there is no preferred move called "attempts to develop weaker foot". I've selected "avoids use of weaker foot" - that may cause managers to train you to remove that ppm. If you want to change it, let me know.
