Roy Hodgson's side move up one place whilst Spain further cement their position as the top international team and Uruguay move into second at the expense of Germany
they moved up because they had two "BIG WINS" agaianst belgium and norway both 1-0 *claps claps*
England should not be in the top ten.
Why man, they are a good team that manages to win games every now & then. They deserve to be on Top 10, not so much in Top 5.
England has done absolutely nothing in my life along with many other people's life. Well other than cause controversy, and shooting themselves in the foot before any international tournament. They may have some good individual talent but they are a sad excuse for a team. Thus not deserving of the 6th spot let alone top 15th in the world.
agreed the fifa rankings need to be changed... in what aorl are we better than argentina etc
Results wise England deserve to be where they are, but not because of their brand of football.
These rankings doesn't mean that much but have to say Well done Uruguay!
Just like Andy Murray being Ranked 4th in the world, means nothing really apart from maybe that we are a quarter final team which would be true.
This is why the FIFA rankings are a complete and total joke. Really England 6th best team in the world BAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHA OK. Whatever you say.
It's based on a complex point system, if they are there then the only people to blame are the teams that let them get there.
Forgive my yankee-ness, but why do you need a ranking system if you have a world cup? Doesn't that kinda give an idea of how the teams rank? Isn't that, sort of the point?
well, maybe to decide the top 16 teams in the world you could use the world cup from quarter finals onwards. but to decide every other country in the world, some sort of system is needed.
Ahh, I see, it's for all the teams, then. I assumed that it was just for the top 10 teams or something, silly me. @sand But being a yank suggests that I likely don't follow soccer/football. And don't. I had no idea the cups were 4 years apart.
The world cup is every 4 years. Being a "yank" is no excuse to not understanding that things change between those 4 years...
