Alternative Confederations Cup

With the Copa America, African Cup of Nations and Gold Cup all happening right now it got me thinking.

Imagine there was a tournament (lets say a league) where each of the 6 confederations* submitted one team but got to pick it them from all of their constituent members.
  1. What would be the ranking of the Confederations from 1-6 after the tournament?
  2. Who'd be in the UEFA starting XI?
  3. If this had been a thing in the past then how many different Irish players would have made the UEFA team since 1990?

* The 6 Confederations are:
  • AFC - Asia + Australia (since they snaked off from the OFC n 2006)
  • CAF - Africa
  • CONCACAF - North & Central America and the Caribbean
  • CONMEBOL - South America
  • OFC - New Zealand, Papua New Guinea plus a load of tropical islands
  • UEFA - Europe
