    With that many substitutions, it can't be a full FIFA game. Even if FIFA lists it on their site, they make a lot of mistakes.

    Globalsportsarchive has that one under Non-FIFA, so I will make it Non-FIFA too, even though I don't know why.


    Another thing - has anybody got the missing data from the West Asian Championships? Quite annoying, that one. Also the CHAN qualifiers are not looking too good. Should i put up the last games as "missing". Good lord, that competition really is the most annoying in world football. Tons of work, and so many careers that never lead to singke game for the A team.

    Hi, in the match South Korea vs Poland (2:2) played 2011-10-07 (https://www.national-football-…2/South_Korea_Poland.html) Hong, Chul didn't play for South Korea.

    Here (http://www.kfa.or.kr/archive/p…ch_val=%ED%99%8D%EC%B2%A0) you can see the matches played by him with the national team in the official website of KFA (this match doesn't appear) and here (http://www.kfa.or.kr/national/…rsor=#cursor_location_sub) you can see the report (maybe confused with Hong, Cheol),

    Hi - which Hong Cheol would that be? Because in all the sources I could find (had a brief look) it seems that Hong Chul actually did play. That match against Poland was unofficial, though. The link you posted will not open for me.

    I don't have Fardan Hakimi in the line-up, so there is probably a mistake here somewhere? Could well be us.

    So, as you can see, we changed the forum. I am really sorry for neglecting this forum so much, but it all will be different now. As you know, we are a very small operation, it's basically me, Florian who does the programming and a few volunteers who add data. So if we have a problem, it can take quite some time to fix it.


    I will look through the forum tomorrow, and add everything that we have been missing.

    [quote='soccerscout','http://www.national-teams.com/forum/index.php?thread/&postID=49596#post49596'] Which of Alcénat's games in 2008 do you consider non-FIFA? They are all FIFA games: http://www.fifa.com/live-scores/teams/country=hai/men/matches/index.html#year2008 http://national-football-teams.com/player/16469/Jean_Sony_Alcenat.html [/quote] It's the game against Guatemala, on the 23th of April. Guatemala had 8 subs, so according to FIFA's own rules, this shouldn't be a full FIFA game. Mind you, FIFA has loads of these games in their archives, sometimes even with 10 subs. Since some time in 2004 (the exact date is not completely clear to me, but it could be July 1st), FIFA only considers matches full FIFA games when they have no more than six substitutes. Now, if FIFA lists games with seven subs on their site as full FIFA games, I accept that. Why, I hear you ask? Because in the past, associations have made appeals to FIFA to count games as full FIFA games, even when they had a sub too much, and sometimes these appeals go through. England had one, I seem to remember, although I can't tell you which game it was. Sadly, FIFA doesn't communicate this at all. So with seven subs I give the game the benefit of the doubt, if it is listed by FIFA as a full FIFA game. But I have to draw the line somewhere, and I do it as soon as we have 8 subs. What this comes down to, is that FIFA is doing an extremely bad job. They don't properly look at the matches on their site, and the whole system when a game is considered a full FIFA game is, well, shit. I really have to put this somewhere ob the site, maybe the FAQs, as i have been having this conversation far too often.
    Hi - it seems that only the Finland-Jordan game is a full FIFA game, right? I won't be adding the Danish games, I think, and I am unsure about the rest. It's an awful amount of work for loads of games nobody seems to bother with. I am really not sure how and when I have time to add all of these games. I think if I don't get help with adding games for NFT soon, I will have to cut down on stuff. My family life is actually beginning to suffer, this is turning out to be too much work for one person, as I am the only one adding games, doing all the mails (that has gotten completely out of control, too) most of the transfers and so on.
    Saludos, desde Cuba, gracias por este formidable sitio de estadisticas,como podria ayudarle a actualizar y corregir algunos errores por ejemplo en la seleccion uruguaya de 1968 , falta un match jugado por el jugador Juan Maldonado vs Mexico el 26 de Septiembre de 1968. Y en la seleccion brasileña de 1940 falta el jugador Lele (del Club Madureira) que jugo vs Argentina el 10 de marzo de 1940. Me encantaria seguir ayudando y actualizando este maravilloso sitio What exactly does he want me to change?

    [quote='soccerscout','http://www.national-teams.com/forum/index.php?thread/&postID=49458#post49458'] I believe in 2010, the non-FIFA game is Mexico - Spain. However FIFA does count it as a FIFA game (like all the other friendlies in 2010 that are shown for Mexico) http://national-football-teams.com/matches/report/10727/Mexico_Spain.html http://national-football-teams.com/country/121/2010/Mexico.html http://www.fifa.com/live-scores/teams/country=mex/men/matches/index.html#year2010 [/quote] Then they are ignoring their own rules - again. Mexico made 7 subs in this game, Spain went for 8. I am willing to keep games with 7 subs, that are listed by FIFA, as games with too many subs are sometimes made official afterwards, in a process that noone seems to understand. Also FIFA never communicates any of this. But this seems too much, so I think that game should not be counted as a full FIFA game.
    [quote='soccerscout','http://www.national-teams.com/forum/index.php?thread/&postID=49426#post49426'] Haiti - Brazil is actually a FIFA game (yes, sounds weird with so many substitutions) http://nationalfootballteams.com/matches/report/17761/Haiti_Brazil.html http://www.fifa.com/live-scores/teams/country=bra/men/matches/index.html#year2004 http://www.fifa.com/live-scores/teams/country=hai/men/matches/index.html#year2004 [/quote] FIFA introduced its "no more than six substitutions or it isn't a full international"-rule in 2004. They decided on the new rule early in 2004, and from what I could find out (not too much, I am afraid) it became officially binding at the start of the 2004/05 season in July. If anyone has better information than I do, please say so, at the moment I am doing 2004 updates according to this.
    Hi - Johnny of weltfussballarchiv was asking if anyone had the North korean subs for their last game against Qatar. For some of the last games, one of you guys actually mailed their coach, Jörn Andersen, for the subs. Anyone?
    Roger have you got anything on 2005? I am stuck with Kuwait at the moment, and can't find match data anywhere for some players we have in the database, like Ahmad Hani or Meshaal Faihan.
