FIFA Ranking: January 2010 preview (IV)

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 January 21st, 2010.

FIFA will publish the ranking on February 3rd.

I might post a final update on Monday, if I can find the time.

Three matches left: Nigeria - Algeria (2010 ACN third place match), Ghana - Egypt (2010 ACN final) and Jamaica - Canada (friendly). I'm not so sure about Jamaica - Canada being included.

Here's how the totals can change for these six teams:

Egypt (1012 - loss, 1034 - PSO loss, 1056 - PSO win, 1077 - win)
Nigeria (862 - loss, 902 - PSO loss, 937 - PSO win, 972 - win)
Ghana (823 - loss, 852 - PSO loss, 882 - PSO win, 911 - win)
Algeria (784 - loss, 819 - PSO loss, 855 - PSO win, 890 - win)
Canada (527 - loss, 540 - draw, 566 - win)
Jamaica (387 - loss, 399 - draw, 423 - win)

In the ranking table, the value displayed for these teams is the minimum possible value. This means that even if they lose, their total can't drop.

Egypt could climb to 8th with a win against Ghana.

Best movers:

25 - Yemen
18 - Gambia
17 - Malawi and Tajikistan

Worst movers:

-29 - Nicaragua
-21 - Burundi
-17 - Guinea

Best movers in the top 50:

11 - Egypt
7 - Ghana
4 - Gabon

Both Egypt and Ghana can still improve.

Worst movers in the top 50:

-8 - Cameroon
-6 - Côte d'Ivoire and Mali
-5 - Algeria

Algeria could limit the damage and could even improve their best ever ranking with a win against Nigeria.

Saudi Arabia overtake Bahrain for 4th place in AFC.

Egypt will be the new African top team even if they lose against Ghana in the 2010 ACN final.

Three teams will have their best ever ranking:

Egypt (13th - 15th in January 2009)
Venezuela (47th - 48th in April 2004)
Montenegro (72nd - 73rd in November 2009)

Mongolia will return to their best ever ranking - 170th first achieved in November 2009.

Two teams will return to their worst ever ranking:

Tunisia (56th - first achieved in March 2008)
Tahiti (195th - first achieved in November 2009)

Four teams will have their worst ever ranking:

Romania (38th - 36th in October 2009)
Sweden (43rd - 42nd in July 2009)
Morocco (65th - 63rd in November 2009)
Guinea-Bissau (195th - 194th in December 2009)
