    Qatar is an actual country though (albeit just an oil hub).

    Edit: Kuwait was the country in question.

    tbf, Di Stefano for Colombia stood when, apparently, they were for the Colombian XI rather than the national team.

    Worth noting as well that in principle FIFA are happy to accept autonomous constituent states (e.g. the Basque region of Spain) having a separate football team to their national team (e.g. The Faroe Islands and Denmark).

    That seems to be true - maybe it’d be fairer if I pick him an Argentinian?

    Ok, well it seems to be a little more complicated than I thought. I guess I can let the picks stand if no-one objects. I'll let this issue float around before kicking off the final round, just in case someone from a neutral POV wants to weigh in on this. Otherwise we'll just let sledger's & Dan's picks stand.

    Not that it really matters, but neither Catalonia or Basque Country are FIFA/UEFA recognised teams. Would make sense to me being one would be a reasonable standard. Would also mean the Colombia pick for Di Stefano wouldn't be legit.

    Yeah, the fact that Catalonia & Basque Country aren't affiliated with FIFA/UEFA indicates to me that these picks are definitely not valid. And I suppose Andrew's Di Stefano (Columbia) pick isn't valid either, and so should be changed to Argentina.

    I know I didn't specify that the nation in question had to be a FIFA affiliated nation when starting this draft, but I think it was implied tbh.

    Anyone else have an opinion on this?
