This certainly looks 7-a-side to me.  Also blue #3 seems to be female (?)

Not on FIFA's list but I couldn't immediately find a reason not to consider it an A match. Cape Verde's team at least was very similar to the one that hosted Senegal in the WC qualifier three days earlier.
That silly FIFA rule that a NT cannot play in two different continents in the same FIFA calendar window, despite for CV being closer and cheaper to travel to Portugal than e.g Mozambique
Will be interesting to see if that gets applied to Nigeria, who in the next international break play Algeria away, followed by a friendly against Argentina in Russia. Not sure I've heard this rule before, there must have been plenty of cases similar to Nigeria's upcoming one in the past.

The rule also doesn't consider the countries in which the players are based.  Given that the point of this rule was ostensibly to reduce demands on player travelling, it is another example of a bad committee job made by clueless clowns.  A rule which has little impact on its intended target, and which is full of unanticipated (yet obvious) negative consequences.

It'll probably be clear nearer the time, but Portugal v Netherlands is listed on the site as 27/03 when official sources claim it's 26/03.

I try to include "national team v national team (youth, A, B)" matches on my site, so these are minor additions that I had missed:

17/02/2016 Algeria U-23 0-1 Palestine in Algiers
04/10/2017 Jersey 1-1 Northern Ireland U-21 in Saint Helier

Thanks - this topic was supposed to be for matches that have been discovered (after being missed) and added later.  

The Croatia-Brazil match has not yet been confirmed.  Brazil also looking at making Austria their final warm-up game on 10 June.

Ah, sorry.

Maybe a new category is needed: "Additions of upcoming matches discovered due to rarely-fulfilled self-interest."

That's what the contact form is for.  You'll find the matches go on to the fixtures page pretty soon afterwards if I can verify them. 😁

Also, corrections are welcome in the contact form too.  I recently had Kirill of eloratings fame run his eagle eye over my online ice hockey scores and discover no fewer than 7 atrocious errors in my results.  Thankfully, he didn't rub his hands together with glee and go "hahaha, that Mark is rubbish, look at how many mistakes he makes, the daft clown!".

I was thus able to put things right due to him informing me of these abhorrent errors.  I'm afraid these sorts of mistakes come from being human, and also trying to do too many things at once, manually; but I do try really hard not to make mistakes.  Unlike many people online, I'm very, very happy to correct things that are wrong.

In saying that, if I receive a bullet-point list of 4,000 corrections tomorrow, I may just delete the website, have a sex change, become a nun, and move to Scunthorpe.

More seriously, there is always a time balance to consider when people write in with corrections (or potential corrections) because it is time-consuming to verify which version is correct.   Many people keep their own personal archives of match data (without really contributing anything new, just collating other people's efforts) and in differentiating between two sources (or other people's lists) they find a discrepancy, and are unable themselves to determine which version is correct  -  I get a lot of questions like that.   Which I don't mind answering provided that (a) the questioner is up front about why they are asking, and (b) I can potentially get something useful in return.   Quite often neither of these conditions are met though, and in those cases the question is basically equivalent to "do this work for me for free."

Forgot to add (c) the first question does not beget a sequence of more questions which it would have been much more efficient to have considered along with the first one.

I'd made it Lincoln with my bible and surgery appointment card, with my finger hovering over the delete button all the way.

Guess I'll just have to turn back now.

But just in case for the future... from the looks of things you may be wasting your time there and Doncaster's your best bet.

26 Feb: Guinea-Bissau women 1-4 Gambia women

Gambia women's 2nd win in their 2nd ever match (both against Guinea-Bissau).  Unfortunately, they didn't seek authorisation for either match from FIFA, and so they won't appear in any official records.
