The Germans gain 24 points because the friendly draw against Italy (9 Feb 2011) will drop from the most recent time frame and the defeat against Norway (11 Feb 2009) will drop to the oldest time frame.
The Dutch lose 6 points mainly because their extraordinary 2010 results will be divided by 18 instead of 17, because the friendly win against Austria (9 Feb 2011) will drop to that interval.
Uruguay will also close in on the Dutch and will be only 42 points behind in February (14 points closer than in the January ranking).
Here's the February 2012 top 20 - only African teams could change it.
