According to many sited Venezuela NT did not play any matches between 1938 and 1946. However, in 1944 the team played at a 4 nations Cup Tournament in Curaçao as one can read here.

But was it Venezuela NT as mentioned? The linked article reports: La selección nacional, al mando del doctor Julio Bustamante, viajó a territorio holandés con 15 jugadores, de los cuales cuatro eran argentinos (Alberto "cañón" Casco, Alejandro Mariscotti, Antonio "maestro" Ruíz Díaz y "don" Lino Taiolli) y dos cubanos (García Pelayo y Joaquín Yarritu).

in the book "80 Tragos de Vinotinto" the games are considered national team matches....(15 jugadores cuatro eran argentinos, par de cubanos...)

I am not sure, because I have the same book (a gift from the author) and he includes everything in chronological order regardless of status, e.g. youth teams are mixed in between senior teams.   I don't see anywhere in the book a simple list of full internationals.  I think it is left to the reader.  Also he once sent me such a list which didn't include the games in 1944.

Please can you post a list of the A-matches Venezuela played in its early years according to that book? Let's say until 1950.

The book didn't give a list, that was my point. It covers tournaments chronologically, with lineups of the Venezuela games and some introductory text.

The website of Asociación de Historia y Estadísticas del Fútbol Venezolano listed those matches as "A" matches the last time I had a look..

Does the FVF have a list?

I know, but I presume that the FVF hasn't endowed them with official status.
