In a lot of countries in Europe and South America it is a religion. A lot of fans have their team in the domestic league who also compete in European competition (Champions League, Europa League) and follow the national team through the World Cup qualifiers/ European Championship Qualifiers.

We will just have to agree to disagree here.
