FIFA Ranking: June 2012 preview (II)

The 2012 June ranking will be published on 6 June. The official deadline for matches is 31 May. However, in the article connected to the May FIFA Ranking it says:

The June edition will undoubtedly bring more movement with it, as friendlies are played in Europe to warm up for UEFA EURO 2012 and another batch of 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil™ qualifiers influence the calculations. 

The first qualifiers will take place on 1 June, after the official deadline, so for the June ranking I will use Sunday, 3 June 2012, as deadline for matches. Not sure if FIFA will do the same.



Spain's top spot in danger. And the danger is coming from... Uruguay. La Celeste will certainly climb to 2nd with a win against Venezuela on home ground and at least a draw against Russia in Moscow, but in order to grab the top spot they need to defeat Russia and also Spain to lose their 3 friendlies (Serbia, Korea Republic and China).

Portugal will drop at least 1 spot, even if they win their friendlies against Macedonia and Turkey.

Most points dropped (best case scenario):

-116 - Portugal
-84 - Liechtenstein
-47 - Cuba
-34 - Kazakhstan
-31 - Romania and Italy
-26 - Guyana and Croatia
-25 - Costa Rica
-21 - Sweden

Most points gained (worst case scenario):

43 - Chad
32 - Paraguay and Albania
23 - Wales
15 - Scotland
14 - Ecuador and Cyprus
13 - Congo and New Zealand
11 - Japan
