Obviously going to be a combination of these, just choose the most important one.

Love/respect/animosity towards the country
Love/respect/animosity towards the team
Love/respect/animosity towards the manager
Animosity towards the actions/policies of the government of the country
Personalities of the players
Political positions of the players
Playing style of the team
Team known for cheating/diving/etc.
Supporting the underdog on principle
Vague personal connections, like you once met someone from that country & they were ok
Long-standing grudges with no specific cause
Other

write-in - if I have no personal connection to the nation, I pick the nation with the players/playing style I like more.

Vague personal connections; which means Portugal, followed by Ireland, followed by France. Could also be something about cheese quality tho

Does “player plays for the team I support” go under “vague personal connections” because I supported Poland earlier because I like Kiwior at Arsenal

Any team that annoys the English media, pundits and fans generally gets my vote.
