Who is "they"?

FIFA considered it an A team.
Croatia FA considered it an A team.
I did not consider it an A team.

The simple reason for me - Croatia did not send their A team. Almost all of the players had zero previous appearances for Croatia. The same for China. Chile and Iceland sent a few more A team players, so I counted their match as an A match.

"A match" and "A team" are different. According to FIFA at least.

Speaking of which, I would like to see the following lineup take the field:

-----------------Bravo-----------------
Lahm R.Márquez D.Luiz Bale
-------------Pirlo---Xavi--------------
O.Abdulrahman Valdivia Riquelme
-----------------Zlatan-----------------

With Maradona as manager.

With such a lineup, whichever side has the ball will almost certainly score. Hence football becomes like basketball, or handball.

On football games where a World All-Star team is an option, my tactics and the limited number of defensive players in those game-created squads end up making me shift Bale to left-back purely for being the most known quantity in that position.

Not sure why you have Lahm in there though, pretty reliable player. How about Ashley Young?

I can't believe the selection of Lahm was the first problem you found in that lineup :-)
