    1. Both games were non-FIFA friendlies.

    2. Where is the source of that affirmation?

    4. This is not definitive confirmation, because that can only be provided by FIFA. But it surely gives a hint.

      Delete
  2. I don't know. As Chappers already pointed out, the complete FIFA fixture-list has disappeared from their site, so it's unknown if Sweden's friendlies are included or not. For now I've decided to exclude them, considering previous years where these Scandinavian winter-friendlies most of the time also weren't included.
    I've asked FIFA about the whereabouts of their fixture-list, no reaction yet...

    1. Hey buddy.. Is there any other response from FIFA regarding the 'missing' of fixture-list in their site? or Is there any valid source to get official FIFA matches?

  3. Iam sure fifa had took a bribery from united Arab emirates because uae draw with Bahrain has ranked 112 and draw with Thailand has ranked as 120 before this chart

  4. Hi
    It seems that the Fifa ranking will be published only everyother month from now on following a men/women alternating (in February men, in March women, in April men et al ) At least it's what I understood. Can you confirm that?

    ReplyDelete
  5. Hi Nicolas, no it's not exactly alternating. FIFA has decided from now on to only publish a ranking after an International Match Window or a major tournament has been played (and of course the end-of-the-year ranking in December).
    This to avoid publishing a ranking where almost nothing happens because only very few matches have been played the previous month.

    So for 2019 this means that the January, March, May and August rankings will be skipped.

    Btw, my previews of the January 2019 ranking are my bad, they are actually considering the February 2019 ranking :)

    ReplyDelete
  6. To be complete the publishing dates of the FIFA rankings in 2019:

    ranking - pub.date - after
    February - Feb 7 - AFC Nations Cup
    April - Apr 4 - Match Window March 18-26
    June - Jun 14 (a Friday !) - Match Window June 3-11
    July - Jul 18 - Copa America, Gold Cup, CAF Nations Cup
    September - Sep 19 - Match Window September 2-10
    October - Oct 24 - Match Window October 7-15
    November - Nov 28 - Match Window November 11-19
    December - Dec 19 - end of the year

    ReplyDelete
  7. Thanks! Got it now! It makes sense...

    ReplyDelete
  8. What is the closed date for FIFA ranking january ? 25 Jan ?

    ReplyDelete
  9. The deadline for the February 2019 ranking (to be published Thursday February 7th) is Monday February 4th. All matches played before this deadline are (in principle) included in the February ranking.

    ReplyDelete
  10. Ed, we appreciate if you can update next week the 2022 FIFA World Cup seeding (AFC), showing expected Pots of the draw, after AFC cup final.
