Best teams to play against in November

This is based on (FIFA points for a win) / (actual effort from Elo rating).

Doesn't include teams that have competitive matches for both of the November dates or teams that would bring less than 250 points for an OFC opponent.

Team - Opponent(s) in November

Algeria (Tunisia, Cameroon)
Slovenia (USA)
Sierra Leone
Greece (Russia, Romania)
Switzerland (Netherlands, Luxembourg)
Denmark (Sweden, Finland)
Russia (Greece)
Serbia (Mexico, Honduras)
Belgium (Romania, France)
Hungary (Liechtenstein, Poland)
Italy (Poland, Uruguay)
Wales (Norway)
Norway (Wales)
France (USA, Belgium)
Georgia (Moldova)
Cape Verde Islands
Sweden (Denmark, England)

Armenia, Slovakia, Sierra Leone, Israel and Cape Verde Islands are still available, but I think it's too late to schedule a friendly.

A month ago, a certain FA asked me for such a list, although in the end they didn't use it. My, how the tables have turned. Not long ago, I was still writing to FAs about ideal opponents for friendly games... I must be moving up in the world. :)

  1. As Norway found out yesterday, Wales are certainly not a team you want to play :)

  2. i hope you requested money from the FA you had mentioned.
