FIFA Ranking: May 2015 final preview

FIFA will publish the ranking on 7 May.

A very quiet month. Most of the changes are due to devaluation of results. Of course, there's USA's win vs. Mexico and UEFA's decision to award the Montenegro - Russia EURO 2016 qualifier to the guests.

Only one match left - a friendly:

30/Apr Suriname - Guyana

This is how the points and ranks could change for these 2 teams


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

Guyana 128 146 163 154
Suriname 115 141 170 155

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

Best movers:

12 - Dominica
6 - St. Vincent and the Grenadines
5 - Russia, St. Lucia

Worst movers:

-9 - Mauritania
-6 - Grenada
-5 - Montenegro

Best movers in the top 50:

5 - Russia
1 - Czech Republic, Slovakia, Algeria, Wales

    1. The games vs. Togo and Burundi were already included in the April 2015 ranking. Mauritius' total dropped because the two defeats vs. Mauritania (April 2014) are now more than 12 months ago and they impact the average of the 0.5 timeframe (games played between 24 and 12 months ago).

      You're welcome.
