  1. Hi Edgar, I hope you´ll have some nice vacations. Thank you for 2011, it was a pleasure to follow your site. Many Thanks./Kristoffer

  2. Regarding Angola matches, Angola possibly used 11 substitutes against Cameroon (who in any case used their amateur local-based team) on 14th December. This match, however, remains in FIFA's database. They've got an official match report from the Angolan FA that mentions only 3 substitutes (although it was the Angola FA themselves whose online report suggested 11 substitutes).

    Regarding the January 2012 ranking, the Angolan FA lists 11 substitutes for the match against Namibia, which finished 0-0. I've informed FIFA of this match also. It remains on the site, but this may be simply because they are on holiday at the moment.

  3. Thanks Kristoffer.


    That match is still on
