Latest Fifa Rankigs

Thu Jul 13, 2006 7:52 am

http://www.fifa.com/en/mens/statisti.../index/0,2548,All-Jul-2006,00.html

Fifa rankings as many know are a joke...but check out the latest.

Brazil is still ranked first (how???)
England is ranked fifth (again how???)
Netherlands ranked sixth (how?)
Spain ranked seventh ( a bit much)
Czech Republic ranked tenth

In my estimation,

Germany deserved a higher ranking (ranked 9th, should be in the top 5) and
Ghana looks to have been shafted with 25th ranking, this after reaching the knock out stage.....
Come on you gunners......!!!!!

These rankings have always been a joke, and a bad one too. Don't take them seriously. (BTW, i too agree germany should be higher up, among other many mistakes).

Italy won the world cup and they are ranked #2?  crazy  What do they have to do to get #1?

I see the USA dropped to #16

Damn, Guatemala went up 9 points?

These rankings are truly a joke.  Silly

These rankings are based on a five year performance average, IIRC.

What about Australia, we made it to the top 16 in the cup, had a good chance at winning that gamem (maybe) if it wasn't for that excellent Italian diver who won the cup for them, and they put us in 33.

Pathetic!!!

Japan fell 31 positions and Eguitorial Guinea jumped 55.

That's the FIFA for you, completely illogical at everything they do. Germany only dropped down (before this new list) because for the past 2 years, most of their games were just friendly games, which do not count to the total of the points achieved.
