    Ouch. That's too big a fall for England...

    Portugal dropped from 4th to 11th. More realistic, but still not enough.

    For once, the ranking makes some sense now...

    Except for Uruguay... they should be lower...

    We are in the exact same spot as the last update, makes sense I suppose!

    Can't wait for the Eng vs Sco game in November, last one was a cracker.

    Well they're 12th in the Elo rankings. With Mexico just ahead in 11th. :p

    Croatia is 17th-one above Mexico, despite losing to them :p. Australia meanwhile drops 14 places to 76! :(

    Well done to the Dutch and Costa Rica though-up 12 places respectively :tup:

    As an 'Murican, it feels good to see England below USA in rankings. But it feels even better to see Mexico below us too. :cool:

    That's why you should never trust the FIFA Ranking, the formula is there and it is self explanatory but nobody understands how it does work

    You know what's funny? I was playing Pro carrer on my FIFA 14 and I was called to play in the Brazil National Squad in the 2014 WC. Exactly on the quarter final, Neymar got injured. :lol:

    Nope... the coach didn't put me to play in the quarter finals and we lost to Portugal. '-'
