FIFA Ranking: June 2009 final preview

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.

The official deadline for matches to be included in the June 2009 was two days ago. However, FIFA may include more matches, but no later than Sunday, May 31st.

Included: Matches up to and including May 27th, 2009.

On Monday I will post a list of possible changes if FIFA do include matches played up to Sunday.

A lot of movement in the top 10, with Netherlands (2nd), Italy (4th) and Croatia (7th) moving up one place, at the expense of Germany (3rd), Brazil (5th) and England (8th).

Ukraine and Serbia return to the top 20, with Cameroon and Bulgaria dropping out. The last time Serbia was in the top 20 was in August 2007. The Indomitable Lions exit the top 20 after 14 months.

Finland and Burkina replace Mali and Morocco in the top 50.

Paraguay retake 3rd place in CONMEBOL from Uruguay.
