New Fifa rankings are out

1-Spain
2-Italy
3-Germany


Brazil's Dunga is on the hot seat due to an underachieving squad, Ramond Domenech will find out his fate later this month. Italy fired their coach, and Lippi is rumoured for a return.

Turkey's Fatih Terim signed a contract extension through 2012, which should bore well for Turkey's path for World Cup success.

USA at 30 is laughable.

You think USA is better than some of these teams?

Columbia (23), Uruguay (22), Nigeria (26) are pretty iffy too - based on what we did against the World #1 Spain, and Argentina (6)

I believe Lippi is already officially back.

I'm sorry but how did we drop 9 points in the rankings after drawing Argentina 0-0? And that 1-0 Spain loss wasn't that bad.

Evidently FIFA watched our friendly against England, probably only read the score line from Spain, and just ignored the Argentina game all together. That's the only way this could be rationalized.

It's mainly based on points vs quality of competition.


Playing both legs against Barbados is what dropped us, I bet...even though we had no choice.
