  1. do these values

    08/Dec Sudan - Tanzania X Tanzania PSO (Friendly)
    10/Dec Malawi - Sudan X Malawi PSO (Friendly)

    mean that the country after the "X" has won by PSO, and thus got 2 instead of 3 points?

  2. @Anonymous: Yes, I believe that's what it means.

  3. Why aren't the matches included, which were played at Nov, 22nd / 24th, because actually these results should go into December-ranking...?

  4. @EngelRS4: This post was on 25 November, after those matches had been played. Edgar has included them in the December probable ranking, but using the actual results instead of probable ones.

  5. @Alex
    Thanks for your help! :)

    ...and do you know why Aruba plays 2 friendlies against Suriname at the same date (02/Dec)?

  6. I hadn't even noticed that! I think that is probably a mistake in the list.

    These teams are playing in the ABCS tournament. Probably, if they use a similar format to last year, Suriname-Aruba and Curacao-Bonaire will be the semifinals on 2 December (the latter would not be a FIFA 'A' match, of course), with the 3rd-place match and final on 4 December.

  7. @Alex
    Well, but the weird thing is that if you use the Ranking Tool for Aruba, then there are also these 2 matches shown, but 1 is declared as a "Friendly 2011", and the other one as "ABCS Tournament"...?

  8. @alex , one of the matches on 2 . dec been removed. Maybe FIFA read you comment :)

  9. btw. I found 3 other cases, where 1 country played 2 matches at the same date...(although against another opponents):

    Saudi Arabia played against Gabon and Bulgaria

    Chile played against Northern Ireland and Israel

    Korea DPR played against Hong Kong (home) and Singapore (away)

  10. Regarding the X PSO - yes, it means the winner gets only 2 points.

    Suriname's 2 games - will fix it today - time allowing.

  11. what will be indian team possible ranking in december/
