This might fail some of the OP's criteria, but six years ago there was a game where China's first-string national soccer team played a game against Thailand (many if not most of the Thai players were second-stringers, some in their teens.) China was heavily favored, and had homefield advantage (game was held in China).


China lost 5-1. It should have been even worse; the ref awarded China a very questionable penalty and it should have been by all rights 5-0. The game sparked near rioting, masses of fans blocked the team bus to prevent it from leaving, demanding that the roster be disbanded, and the Chinese coach was fired.
