The 2018.2 CFM World Cup was the second CFM World Cup, the championship for micronational football teams organized by micronations from the Lusophone Sector. It took place in Karnia-Ruthenia from 04 to 14 October 2018. Karnia-Ruthenia was chosen to host the event with the support of the confederations of Asgard, Terras Marianas, Borgonha, Parsháh and Terranova, defeating the joint nomination of São Guimarães e Deltaria, that was supported by Gaston and Escorvania and the nomination of Asgard, that retired their indication to support Karnia-Ruthenia.[1]

This edition of the World Cup was embroiled in controversy. The Confederations of Gaston and Escorvania left CFM in the hours before the World Cup and numerous criticisms about the organization of the event were made. However, it was also the first edition to feature a theme song and opening[2] and closing speeches, made by the Emperor-King of Karnia-Ruthenia.

Group stage

Group A

Borgonha faced the German Empire in a game marked by the fact that the two teams played without select their tactics. Even after two minutes of play, Borgonha opened the scoring.

Escorvânia defeated the Asgardian Team in a fierce game during the first half. In the second half Asgard opened the scoring with a goal in the 51st minute.

Escorvânia even tried to sketch a reaction but it was not enough and the game ended in 2 x 0 for Asgard.[3] For the second round of group A, Borgonha and Asgard faced a game without many surprises. Asgard emerges as a high-quality team, maintaining themselves as a micronational football power since the last World Cup when they played the final against Bugolavija.

Group D

The current World Champion faced the Kingdom of Parshah in their first game. The game was quite balanced all the time, but Bugolavija managed to get ahead in the twenty-seven minutes of the first half.

The Kingdom of Deltaria faced São Guimarães in the other game of group D. The federations that had united to host the World Cup made a very balanced match.

São Guimarães made some changes in the team in search of the goal, and already at the beginning of the second half he came. 1 - 0 for São Guimarães. Deltaria made changes in the team but was unable to equalize and São Guimarães were the best team of the match.[9]


In Group D, Deltaria won the play against Parsháh by a timid result of 1 to 0. The Deltarian Team, first place in Serie B of the League of Micronations, has been making a shy Cup, far from what was expected of the team. Parsháh has been disqualified from the World Cup.

Group B

One more time, Karnia-Ruthenia and Asgard faced each other for the quarter-finals of a World Cup, and again the game was marked by errors. It is worth remembering that in the first CFM Cup, Asgard and Karnia-Ruthenia faced each other in the group stage and in the quarterfinals they played again, being the only two selections that did not go through a cross of keys at the time. This time the key crossing occurred, but the tactics of the Karno-Ruthenian team were not recognized by the system and identified that the tactics were not chosen. Asgard started to score, scoring the goal in the 7th minute. After some tactical changes and even with the error, the Imperial Team managed to score a goal, but Asgard extended the score to 2 to 1 and qualified.[12]
