FIFA world rankings : The best (top 3) and the rest :-)

Postby raja » Mon Apr 26, 2010 6:34 am

Just went to the FIFA website (for the first time in a long time) and could not believe my eyes.
These are the FIFA world rankings. We are #3. Yoooohooooo !!!
That is enough for me. I know we are going to be thrashed in the World Cup so I better take a screenshot of this before it changes.
*** Rushing to take a screenshot *** :grin:

I have a screenshot of the rankings at that time but I don't know how to load that here. :oops:
I should have locked this thread before the rankings position changed. :-)

Football rankings are always bollocks as it depends on who you play and because everyone plays there are rarely enough sensible competative games to get meaningful rankings.

Its a warning for those that advocate the pointless expansion of cricket until too many teams play for all to play all regularly.
