FIFA Ranking: September 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.

Germany and Italy tied in 4th place.
Croatia and France swap places in the top 10.

Bahrain replace Saudi Arabia as 5th in AFC. These two teams will meet in September in the Asian 3rd place play-off.

Ghana overtake Nigeria and are tied with Egypt for 3rd in CAF. Gabon drop out of the top 5. It's very close though - 5 African teams between 29th and 35th.

Trinidad and Tobago in the CONCACAF top 5, overtaking Canada and Jamaica.

  1. Well done Edgar, right again - at least for Australia! Hopefully we can continue with this run of results - we've got tough matches against S.Korea, Netherlands & Oman H/A Asian Cup Qualifiers.

  2. Thanks Mr!

    My thanks for the article on FourFourTwo. I think Aidan Ormond wrote it after seeing a link you posted on their forums.
    My thanks to Aidan too, for mentioning my blog.

  3. Will Spain overtake again Brazil if they beat Belgium and Estonia, and Brazil fails to win at Argentina? Thanks!!!

  4. Hi Alex!

    No. If Brazil win against Chile and draw against Argentina, they will have 1625 points. Spain with 2 wins will have 1624 points.

  5. Thanks Edgar!!

    So, let's wait for Brazil to lose in Argentina so that we can restore the world order ;-)
