List of national association football teams by nickname

Last updated

The following is a list of nicknames of national association football teams.

A nickname is a substitute for the proper name of a familiar person, place or thing. Commonly used to express affection, it is a form of endearment and amusement. As a concept, it is distinct from both pseudonym and stage name, and also from a title, although there may be overlap in these concepts. The term 'hypocoristic' refers to a nickname of affection between those in love or with a close emotional bond.
