FIFA Ranking: February 2015 final preview

FIFA will publish the ranking on 12 February.

Only 4 matches left. The final and 3rd place match of the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations and two friendlies.

This is how the points and rankings could change for the 8 teams involved:



Team - Min points - Max points - Worst rank - Best rank


Côte d'Ivoire 893 952 23 19
Ghana 840 913 28 20
USA 801 824 32 31
Congo DR 609 657 53 44
Equatorial Guinea 584 721 59 40
Panama 555 595 61 55
Afghanistan 181 194 144 142
Pakistan 55 85 179 171

In the table below I've used the minimum points for these teams.

Despite having 2 continental final tournaments this month, there's no best ever ranking for any of the teams involved. Granted, Equatorial Guinea have equaled their best ever ranking (and best ever move) and could climb higher with a good result tomorrow, but that's about it.

Best movers:

59 - Equatorial Guinea
37 - Australia
20 - Iraq

Equatorial Guinea could climb an extra 19 places should they defeat Congo DR. The Nzalang Nacional have equaled their best ever move - 59 places in July 2006.

Worst movers:

-35 - Libya
-17 - Qatar
-13 - Togo

Best movers in the top 50:

11 - Congo
9 - Ghana and Iran
5 - Côte d'Ivoire and Cape Verde Islands

Worst movers in the top 50:

-10 - Zambia
-4 - USA, Iceland and Guinea
-3 - Tunisia and Cameroon

Costa Rica (13th) will improve their best ever ranking - 15 in August 2014.

Equatorial Guinea have returned to their best ever ranking, first achieved in April 2013.

Two teams will return to their worst ever ranking:

Kuwait (128 - 128 in November 2008)
Solomon Islands (184 - 184 in April 2012)

Gambia (169th) will drop to its worst ever ranking - 168 in October 2014.

Some teams will reach their best ranking in the last couple of years:

Congo DR (at least 53 - 51 in September 2003) - 11 years and 5 months
Mauritania (123 - 123 in May 2008) - 6 years and 9 months
Turks and Caicos Islands (at least 176 - 174 in February 2010) - 5 years

Others will drop to their worst ever ranking in the last couple of years:


Paraguay (79 - 81 in September 1995) - 19 years and 5 months
Korea DPR (152 - 173 in March 2000) - 14 years and 11 months
Honduras (77 - 81 in September 2006) - 8 years and 5 months
Russia (33 - 33 in October 2006) - 8 years and 4 months
New Zealand (136 - 156 in September 2007) - 7 years and 5 months

Iran will be ranked above Sweden for the first time in the last 9 years and 7 months.
Equatorial Guinea will be ranked above Australia, Republic of Ireland, Norway, Bulgaria, Honduras, Paraguay and Venezuela for the first time ever.
Faroe Islands will be ranked above Qatar for the first time ever.
