FIFA Ranking: December 2008 preview (I)

Update: Fixed Serbia's total. Thanks samacado!
______________________________________________

Point totals for teams from the top 20 of the October 2007 ranking should be 100% correct. For the others, there's the issue of historical rankings published before July 2006.

Included: matches played up to and including November 19th.

Still to play: Digicel Caribbean Championship final tournament, AFF Suzuki Cup and a couple of friendlies. These matches should not affect the top 50.

I will post at least one update before December 11th.

Netherlands up to 3rd, replacing Italy.
England continue to rise - up to 8th.
Turkey return to the top 10.
Czechia, France and Portugal - tied for 11th place.

So far, the best movers are Fiji - 32 places, followed by Kenya with 20 and three countries climbing 13 places: Bolivia, Uganda and Cyprus.

On the other end, New Zealand goes down 24 places, Belarus 22, Moldova and Eritrea 21.

Best movers in the top 50

11 - Korea Republic
9 - Australia
6 - Honduras and Hungary
5 - Ukraine, Egypt and Chile
4 - Saudi Arabia and Mali

  4. Hi Anan :)

    No need to "sir" me ;)

    The FIFA ranking methodology can be found on fifa.com. See this page for a short explanation and read this pdf file for a more detailed one.

    Here's why Malaysia got 43 extra points in the November FIFA ranking.
