I say take eliminate each of the top countries' national team rosters (which arguably on any given day can beat each other) and make a B team.
Eliminate the countries that don't match up and move to a C team. Who's left after that?

Come on. Talent for talent no nation can match Brazil in football.

Football is the hardest sport to translate talent into wins among the top team but you do need to compete.

Fifa rankings are a joke anyway.
