The Samoas will be unlisted in September

OFC's 2014 FIFA World Cup qualifying format has been changed recently. Thanks Soccer-db.Net for the info!

With Round 1 scheduled for 21 - 26 November 2011, Samoa and American Samoa will be dropped from the FIFA ranking in September 2011 for lack of matches in the last 48 months.

As mentioned before, Papua New Guinea will be dropped in July for the same reason.
