  2. FIFA has excluded the following friendlies that I included:

    2023-09-30 Botswana - Zimbabwe 1:1 (PSO 4:3) for the Independence Cup in Botswana
    2023-10-13 Uzbekistan - Vietnam 2:0 in China
    2023-10-15 Philippines - Kyrgyzstan 1:0 in Bahrain
    2023-10-15 Sudan - Tanzania 1:1 in Saudi Arabia
    2023-10-17 Sierra Leone - Somalia 2:0 in Morocco
    2023-10-17 Sudan - Chad 1:0 in Saudi Arabia

    The (finalized) 1:1 draw at HT in the abandoned EURO-qualifier between Belgium and Sweden on October 16th is included (as expected).
