A thread to update all the most recent moves in the rankings.

There has been a change today actually.

We're in 15th. We moved up 2 spots and while no one including myself agrees with these things because realistically it doesn't matter, I couldn't be happier and I can't think to myself that its not justified given we've only lost 3 games in the last 12. Do we deserve higher? If we keep winning, then probably yes. However I won't go as far as to think we are one of the 10 best teams in the world even if we move up to the top 10. That would be silly because the chances of us qualifying for the world cup are still very slim and while I expect us to fight that spot, I think we'll finish 6th.

 

I find it hilarious that England and Wales share a spot haha.

Its actually important for the Europeans as that's how they determine seedings. For us South Americans though we really only use it to get friendlies against better teams. 

Despite that, we still got a friendly against fucking Jamaica xD

The rankings are what they are and they're important for many reasons concerning qualification groups you may get and if you eventually qualify for a major international tournament, the type of group you may receive.

In saying that, it's obviously not a true reflection of a country's worth on the international stage as can be seen within the ranking.

Rankings are a joke.

I'm personally offended that we aren't number 1. How is Portugal 8? This just... why is this still a thing? It means nothing....

Peru will move up to 14th according to Misterchip, so one spot even though currently its joint 13th and then 15.

I look forward to the outburst when we move ahead of England in September.

Trust me, people will care when it happens. Just like they cared when Romania and Switzerland moved ahead of you.

We've been playing extraordinary football but I have to acknowledge that people still think we are shit simply because of who we are, and England will be one culprit of that.

not anymore I think. most of the stuff you see these days is derision about the whole thing.

you might get the odd dullard questioning certain teams and the order but overall, not many actually give a shit.

That's hard to disagree with I guess. I'll give you the benefit of the doubt.

I still think we'll see wind ups towards England given how you lot are at times haha

@LaSambadeStGermain about 90% of English fans including myself aren't even aware of which teams are ahead in the FIFA rankings and a further 9.9% are aware but don't care. While it's a joke that some of those teams are ranked ahead of England, I don't see what England have done for about 20 years that suggests we should be ranked that high anyway.

Without being disrespectful, I should imagine people think Peru are shit because they haven't qualified for a World Cup almost as long as they have had a hole in their arse.

Ok, maybe not that long but 35 years and counting is a long time. And it's looking highly unlikely we'll see them at Russia either. So realistically, we're looking at 40 years. I don't think anyone in England will bat an eyelid if they are above us in rankings.

Obviously not taking it seriously but for a team like us, it's a nice spectacle.

I second most everyone else except for Brian. This is absolutely pointless. I enjoy looking at the Club Rankings more just out of pure enjoyment instead of this very poor excuse for a ranking system.

Don't see what there is to disagree with, it is pointless. For some teams though it's nice to receive recognition as people do pay attention to this. Whether it's to laugh at how bad it is or to see where they're team are sitting, it's there.

The fact that you have undated this thread led me to believe that you find substance in this.

Fake News

Haha, it was missing a thread and Peru is in the top 20 so why not :D

Sure its pointless, I don't disagree with that but again a nation that has struggled for 40 years, to be in the top 20 (and deservedly) is quite nice.

Believe what you want to though :)

But if you have Peru and USA play a home and home, I think we win both legs without too much sweat, yet we are ranked so low? Again, pointless.

Hilarious suggestion. I can't tell if you're on the wind up or you actually believe that.

I'm fairly confident we'd beat USA at home. I don't know about away though.

Being happy about your place in the FIFA World Rankings is so small time, any decent sized nation knows that they are a joke and if I hadn't read through this thread before-hand wouldn't have known (or cared) where England was. The fact that Wales got up to 2nd puts these rankings in the joke of a nut-shell that they are and without sounding disrespectful to Brian Peru would be absolutely twatted by most teams around them in the rankings, including England.

I agree that its small time actually mate.

I am happy we are 14th, but what does that say about us? It says we aren't a football powerhouse, or near it. We've struggled for 40 years and seeing us do well in the rankings is nice. Why is it nice though? Its nice because we are playing well, and I disagree about being twatted by the nations around them because in the last year we've beaten Brazil, drew Argentina (in a game where we smashed them) and Uruguay. To say we'd be twatted by anyone is quite silly in my opinion. I know that wasn't a dig though :) 

Edit: We have only lost 3 games in the last 16.
