FIFA Ranking: August 2013 preview (I)

FIFA will publish the ranking on August 8th.

It's quite an active month: Gold Cup, COSAFA Cup, CHAN qualifiers and the East Asian Cup.

For this month, I've changed the preview approach. I won't be looking at minimum and maximum points, but at best and worst possible ranking.

Moving up (worst case scenario):

9 - Solomon Islands and Vanuatu
8 - Cameroon
6 - Suriname and Botswana

Moving down (best case scenario):

-12 - Aruba
-10 - Vietnam and Bahamas
-8 - Togo

July 2013 rank - Country - Worst possible rank - Best possible rank

    1. Please do the min/max rankings as well if it's not too much work! I was gonna rely on those for the August rankings...
