Since a few years Hong Kong and Macau were officially handed back to China and thus are no longer colonies. Still, they both have an FA and national team seperate from the Chinese. I am not sure if Macau has a league, but I do know Hong Kong has its own soccer league. I wonder why they still go on on their own ? FIFA seems to disencourage unsovereign nations to enter the competitions (e.g. Gibraltar, Greenland, Jersey, Guernsey, ...) but yet they do approve Hong Kong and Macau to go on independently. It's a bit like Alaska or Tasmania forming their own national team... Now don't get me wrong, I have nothing against Hong Kong and Macau, I just wonder if it wouldn't be easier for them to merge with China just like the former colonies merged with the Chinese PR ?
