FIFA Ranking: January 2014 preview

Next update: 10 January 2014.

Only the 2014 WAFF Championship and 2 pre-CHAN friendlies. I expect FIFA to include all 2014 CHAN matches in the February ranking (that would be the logical thing to do).

Most points gained (worst case scenario):

96 - Saudi Arabia
57 - Tunisia
53 - Egypt
41 - United Arab Emirates
31 - South Africa
28 - Cape Verde Islands
20 - Uzbekistan
19 - Ghana
17 - Panama
17 - El Salvador

Most points lost (best case scenario):

-19 - Norway and Syria
-18 - Gambia
-13 - Sao Tome e Principe
-10 - Senegal
-9 - Chile, Burundi and Thailand
-8 - Algeria
-7 - Sierra Leone, Benin and Malawi

Cape Verde Islands will climb to 35th, thus improving its best ever ranking (36th in August 2013).

Two teams will drop to new lows:

Norway (60 - 59 in December 2008)
Yemen (180 - 179 in December 2013)
