  1. Belgium's guaranteed to rise again:

    Up to today, 13 teams can theoretically still end up in front of Belgium:
    - Spain, Germany, Argentina, Croatia & Netherlands: always in front of Belgium (5 teams)
    Portugal: when winning to Croatia (10/6)
    Colombia: when drawing/winning to Peru (11/6) (a loss means 1079 points, they'd have the same points of belgium)
    Italy: if they reach the semifinals of the Confederations cup OR manage to obtain 6 points or more
    Mexico: if they reach the semifinals
    Uruguay: if they reach the semifinals
    Brazil: if they win the Confederations cup AND all games
    Japan: if they win the Confederations cup AND all games

    Since Japan, Mexico, Italy & Brazil are in the same Confederations cup group, Belgium will be at least ahead of 2 teams of those and so be at least 11th.

  2. Croatia basically ruined its ranking in the matter of three days. First Scotland beat us on Friday, and today Portugal in a completely unnecessary friendly match. Well done Stimac, well done HNS.

    1. Ai nogomet, that's not good at all. Losing against Portugal can always happen (we dutchies can tell you that from 'countless' experiences), but this is indeed a dramatic weekend for Croatia. Not only zero points from this friendly, but in the predictions the away game at Serbia shifted to a draw. Which leads to a predicted 6th spot in October, right behind the Netherlands and in front of .... Belgium ! This deciding clash is becoming more important by the day.
