    Four. All at Euro 96: Spain v Bulgaria, Italy v Russia. My next chance will be 2026 as I am now in the US (I could see USA and Mexico games before then but can't be arsed).

                    I've seen Slovakia face 23 different sides, with Ukraine and Hungary the most recent additions. In fact, this qualifying group would have been perfect as I've never seen Croatia, Wales or Azerbaidjan before. Unfortunately, games against these will probably be in Bratislava rather than more convenient Trnava. The Bratislava ground is a pain to get to and from, at least on midweek nights. For weekend nights, I'd stay the night there.

                    I'm missing a lot of the bigger countries as there seems to be a 'closed shop policy' for tickets for games against these. And Luxembourg are the only out and out minnow I've seen, mainly because the prospect of returning home at 2am from, say, Slovakia vs Andorra with work the next day has always had limited appeal. But I'm delighted to have seen Chile, Costa Rica and the USA, and I hope to get to Slovakia vs Jordan in June.

                    As for non-Slovakia games, I guess the most 'niche' one I've attended was China vs South Korea in a 4-nation tournament in 1992. Played at the Workers' Stadium in Beijing.

                      I went to every virtually every Republic of Ireland home game from 1978 to 2010 so I'm going to say all of them ,certainly virtually all of Europe, the USA, Canada, Mexico, Brazil, Argentina, Iran, China, Morocco, Egypt, South Africa and God knows who else.

                        England
                        Iceland
                        France
                        Czech Republic
                        Brazil
                        South Korea

                        The last two were at the Olympic semi-final at Old Trafford in 2012 so hope that counts.

                        I've seen more women's internationals by some distance.

                          Going to be a short list, this.

                          Wales v Scotland
                          England v Colombia
                          Russia
                          Austria
                          Spain.

                          Ive a feeling theres something Ive forgotten (which is a sentence thats getting used more and more often).

                          Edit: forgot Croatia.

                            Men:
                            USA
                            Bolivia
                            Mexico x2
                            Jamaica
                            Peru
                            Scotland
                            T&T x2
                            Panama
                            Ecuador

                            Women:
                            USA
                            Canada x2
                            Sweden
                            South Korea
                            North Korea
                            Brazil
                            France x3
                            Norway x2
                            China
                            New Zealand
                            Australia

                            I'd need to go through my saved tickets to be completely accurate, but there's definitely more-I've been to a couple of Gold Cup doubleheaders, for instance, and for u-23, an entire CONCACAF Olympic qualifying tournament in Hershey, PA for the Sydney games.

                            eta: Cuba, Turkey, South Africa, and New Zealand men also, along with Canada futsal and arena.

                              I make that 45, if I'm allowed RCS as well as Czech Republic and Slovakia? I'm sure I've missed out a couple I've seen in London friendlies (possibly Ghana and Ivory Coast) but will need to check further to confirm .

                                Do the CONIFA teams count? If so that's another six for me.
