FIFA Ranking: Probable top 50 after EURO 2008

Point totals for teams in blue should be 100% correct. For the others, there's the issue of historical rankings published before July 2006.

  1. you have calculated by yourself the match points of last four years for every national team? which method you used for this? i'm very concerned about this, if you have a software or database that gives you the ranking

  2. I have a database with the matches and rankings - and an application computing the total points.

  3. the database is somewhere on the web? would be quite an effort to calculate the points of all the national teams alone

  4. It's on my computer. I update it every month from FIFA.
    It's pretty easy now, but it took me a while to acquire all the data and to get it working (i.e. to get the same ranking as FIFA does).

  5. undoubtedly have done a great job. I want to do the same thing to calculate the ranking alone, but I believe that I would not have the time to calculate the scores manually. Thank you, Edgar
