FIFA Ranking: December 2009 interim ranking

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 up to and including November 22nd, 2009.

Next update: December 10th, 2009.

This is the December ranking computed as if no more matches would be played before December 10th - the deadline for the December ranking. The top 74 teams will not be playing matches.
There are two competitions set to start in a couple of days: CECAFA Cup and SAFF Cup.

Spain will keep the first spot.

Best movers:

17 - Jordan
7 - Kenya and Vietnam
6 - Gambia and Indonesia

Worst movers:

-35 - Grenada
-23 - Cuba
-18 - Eritrea

Best movers in the top 50:

5 - Egypt
3 - Ghana
2 - Algeria, Chile, Ukraine and Slovenia

Worst movers in the top 50:

-4 - Romania
-3 - Bulgaria
-2 - Mexico, Czech Republic, Denmark and Ecuador

Iran drop out of the AFC top 5, replaced by Saudi Arabia.
Egypt overtake Algeria for 4th in Africa and 1st in the Arab world. Some consolation...

  1. I don't understand how the strength of a confederation is calculated, after each World Cup.
    In the FIFA informative file is stated: "The strength of a confederation is calculated on the basis of the number of victories by confederation at the last three FIFA World Cup™ competitions"..
    Any suggestion?

  2. FIFA have said they can't give me a more detailed answer or the calculation method.
    I tried to compute those values myself, but no luck.

  3. have been really rooting for New Zealand to make it to South Africa, but realise now I should have been supporting my AFC brethren Bahrain all along for that 5th spot. The more AFC teams, the more chances of some wins, and hopefully some improvement to the 0.85 Continental Weighting. Now I have to just rely on the Korea Republic - DPR Korea WC final occurring.
