Wales, N. Ireland, Scotland, England, and the Faroe Islands (among others) are not sovereign nations. Should they be their own members? I argue no. To be a FIFA member (or member of a confederation), you should be a nation. Yes, I understand Scotland has a lot of history as a "nation," but they should be part of the UK unless they want to be independent (go for it). There are 193 member nations, and 4 of those (Palau, Monaco, Nauru, and Micronesia) are not FIFA members. The UK is a UN member, but not a FIFA member, but would become one if membership was solely by being sovereign. Therefore, there should be 189 FIFA members instead of the 209 or so we currently have. What say you?
