History

Establishment, 1900–1928

Gustavo Marroquín Herrera scored the first Creeperian international goal.

The Creeperopolis national football team was established in 1900. The team played its first international match on 18 November 1900 as a part of the Siglo XX Games, an international tournament between the national teams of Creeperopolis, Atlántida, Castilliano, El Salvador, and the State of the Church. The first match the team played was against El Salvador, in which the team won by a score of 6–0. Gustavo Marroquín Herrera scored all six of Creeperopolis' goals. Creeperopolis' second game was on 22 November 1900 against Castilliano, in which the team won by a score of 4–0. The team's third game was on 24 November 1900 against the State of the Church, in which the team won by a score of 6–0. The teams fourth and final game of the group stage was against Atlántida, in which the team won by a score of 2–0. The team finished the group stage with a perfect 12 points and a goal differential of +18; the team scored 18 goals and was not scored upon once.

Creeperopolis advanced to the knockout stage of the Siglo XX Games as first in the group and played its first match against Atlántida, which finished in fourth in the group, on 28 November 1900. Creeperopolis won the match by a score of 3–0, eliminating Atlántida and advancing to the Final. Creeperopolis faced Castilliano in the Final. Earlier in the tournament, Creeperopolis won by a score of 4–0. When the match started, Creeperian Humberto Gómez Serrano scored a goal at the 56 second mark, gaining Creeperopolis a 1–0 lead in the 1st minute. Marroquín Herrera then scored in the 8th minute, and at the 10th minute, Castillianan goalkeeper Manuel Rodríguez Torra scored an own goal. Víctor Recinos Yagüe scored at the 12th minute and Marroquín Herrera scored again at the 19th minute on a penalty. With the match at 5–0 at the 19th minute, the match had been effectively already decided. Marroquín Herrera went on to score eight goals during the match, an international record, and Creeperopolis won by a score of 21–0, also an international record. Creeperopolis ended the tournament 42–0, not being scored on once.

After the tournament, the Creeperopolis national team was accused of bribing the referees of the six matches they played to rule favorably to the Creeperian team and to rule negatively against their opponents. The Creeperopolis national team vehemently denied bribing any match officials to rule in their favor and to give them an unfair advantage. Several of the referees also came out denying being bribed to rule in favor of the Creeperans.

Nicknames

The Creeperian team is commonly known by fans as Los'Romeristos, Creeperian Spanish for The Romerists, in reference to the Catholic Imperial Restoration Council of the Creeperian Civil War, who were also known as Romerists after their leader, Emperor Romero I. Other nicknames include El Negro y Gualda, Creeperian Spanish for The Black and Gold, and La'Selección, Creeperian Spanish for The Team.

Style of play

Kits

The first kit of the Creeperopolis national team bore the colors of the national flag: black and white. The kit remained in black and white until 1923, when manager Ramón Osorio Molina had the team change its kit to be the colors red and blue. The decision was made due to Marroquín Herrera's murder the year prior and that the national team wanted to pay homage to him, as red and blue were reportedly his favorite colors. After the Creeperian Civil War and the negative connotations of the color red, the colors were briefly reverted back to black and white, however, they were returned to red and blue in 1953 and remain the colors of the national team to the present day.
