  1. Hi Edgar and welcome back.
    When the confederations weightings will apply to FIFA rankings?

  2. Thanks Edgar.

    Lots of zeros this time round.

  3. Odd they won't include August 10-11 friendlies. There's nothing to add to August ranking otherwise except the T&T-A&B friendly.

    I'm pretty sure they will be: CONMEBOL 1, UEFA 0.99, the rest 0.85. But will know for sure on September 15 - or earlier if FIFA post a special article about the confederation weightings.

    It's not odd. All friendlies will be played after the deadline - even after the semi-official deadline of Sunday, August 8th.

  6. Hi Edgar,

    I thought, now the 'historical issue' is no longer messing up the fifa-ranking calculation of points, that I should come up with the exact same point-totals as FIFA (and you) do.

    For almost all countries that applies, but I have 5 countries with more than 1 point difference (assuming that a 1 point difference could be caused by rounding): Uganda (-4), Japan (-3), Jamaica (-3), Mali (3) and Eritrea (-2).
    I have compared my list of matches with the FIFA-match database and could find no differences between them, so the starting point for the calculation should be the same.

    Would you be so kind to illustrate your detailed calculation of points for e.g. Uganda for the august 2010 ranking, so that I can find out where I'm making a mistake ?

    Thanks in advance, Ed

  7. Ed, you should try writing to datainfo@fifa.org and ask them for the detailed point totals for Uganda. They are very helpful and I think it would be better to get them from an official source. If you don't get an answer in ... say... one week, write me an e-mail.
