FIFA Ranking: December 2012 preview

Next update: 16 November 2012. 

FIFA will publish the ranking on 19 December.

The 2012 CECAFA Cup draw is scheduled for 12 November, but I've computed the possible minimum and maximum values for the 11 FIFA members involved.

The top 3 will remain unchanged, while Colombia could climb as high as 4th. Even if they lose to Brazil, they won't drop from their current 8th spot.

Ecuador will climb to at least 14th and at most 11th, thus improving their best ever ranking of 17th.

Cayman Islands and Seychelles will return to their worst ever rankings, while Sri Lanka will drop to a new worst ever ranking.

Most points dropped (best case scenario):

48 - Ecuador
44 - Zambia
42 - Guinea
42 - Equatorial Guinea
39 - Barbados
37 - Mali
35 - Sao Tome e Principe
30 - Colombia
27 - Libya
27 - Vietnam

Most points dropped (best case scenario):

-96 - Bermuda
-87 - Belize
-82 - Afghanistan
-72 - Uruguay
-70 - Chad
-69 - Curacao
-62 - Wales
-60 - Korea DPR
-56 - St. Kitts and Nevis
-55 - American Samoa
