Something is very different here: Mexico has dropped substantially and the US are off the list!

Have FIFA finally realised the error of their ways???

Lets be totaly honest here...

Who looks at these rankings and why do they matter. We all know that our team DOES NOT belong that high up on that list considering our recent results.

And it's not just our team, there are so many on this list here that we can pick on and adjust accordingly..

Don't even give this list a second though, but to answer your question YES! I do think that FIFA has lost her head... ;)

Evalagoal (just love that name :D ), I could understand the world rankings is full of garbage, sometimes we tend to follow it just to see when our national team are heading to, kind of like in the everyday world we may follow the personal lives of celebraties ever if we don't care so much about it. :rolleyes:

I don't really understand tha ranking thing whatsoever.

FIFA consider England fourth because we haven't (officially) lost a single game in a major tournament since 2002. Since then, we were always kicked out on penalty shoot-outs.

Weird.

Last time England lost an official game, it was against Northern Ireland. FIFA doesn't even count the 2-1 loss versus Belarus as it was a friendly and a B squad game.

Cyprus is ranked 80th and it says they moved up 23 spots

That win from Ireland moved them up.

Well done - I wonder if any changes were made - the US and Mexico were top 6 or 7 for a while - now, rightfully, they are nowhere to be seen - but now the African's are overrated

Not always true loup, lately Ivory Coast and Ghana have been playing well before and after World Cup 2006. Nigeria and Cameroon we're once "powerhouse" nations, now there no where to be as good as they we're before. I wonder why Egypt get the nod at no. 19? :huh: Are they for real?

What's really surprising is why not put Serbia or Ghana in there in the top 20? :D

Rankings are only good for showing a relative ranking IMO.

For example I'm from Canada and they dropped to number 102 or thereabouts but they haven't played hardly any games as a National team lately.

There is a top 7 or 8 team grouping that includes the likes of Brazil and Argentina and then there is a group that goes from 9 to about 25 which includes Greece.

After that you can probably use 25 group intervals.

Very subjective but it still provides a point for discussion boards like this.

      SKIBBE SET FOR BIG DECISIONS AHEAD OF BOSNIA MATCH
       
      The Greek National Team’s crucial match against Bosnia and Herzegovina in European Qualifying for the 2018 FIFA World Cup is fast approaching. The away qualifier, to be played at the Bilino Polje Stadium in Zenica on June 9th, is a vital match that could go a long way in determining Greece’s chances for a place at Russia 2018.
      In the coming weeks, Ethniki boss Michael Skibbe will announce the squad for that crucial qualifier. And Skibbe will have some big decisions to make as five players will miss the match against the Bosnians. Andreas Samaris, Giorgos Tzavellas, Kyriakos Papadopoulos, and Panagiotis Tachtsidis are all ruled out due to suspension, with Samaris having accumulated yellows while Tzavellas and Tachtsidis were both sent off in the team’s last qualifier against Belgium. Kyriakos Papadopoulos will be serving his final match suspension for his actions against Bosnia in Greece.
      Also absent from the team will be long-term injury victim Nikos Karelis. 
      Skibbe is widely reported to be interested in calling up left-back Babis Lykogiannis for the first time. The Sturm Graz player has impressed with his performances as of late putting himself in the frame for a call-up to the senior team after having represented Greece at youth level. 
      Another player to have represented Greece’s younger national teams is also in line for a first call-up. Panathinaikos’ Dimitris Kourbelis could be selected as a back-up defensive midfielder. 
      It’s a big question whether Skibbe will call up Kourbelis and also keep faith in the young talent that were drafted into the squad recently. The smart money is that the German manager will hold onto the likes of Thanasis Androutsos and bring in Kourbelis and Giorgos Manthatis. It wouldn’t exactly be called a youth revolution, however it would a clear sign that Skibbe values what young Greek talent can bring to the table.
      Goalkeeper Orestis Karnezis is set for a return to the team meaning that more than likely Dimitris Kyriakidis will be dropped from the squad. 
      There could be some more surprises depending on injuries, however for now the squad is expected comprise of the players that were selected for the Belgium match.
      Below is the predicted squad for the match against Bosnia:
      Goalkeepers: Orestis Karnezis, Stefanos Kapino, Panagiotis Glykos
      Defenders: Kostas Manolas, Sokratis Papastathopoulos, Vasilis Torosidis, Marios Oikonomou, Kostas Stafylidis, Babis Lykogiannis
      Midfielders: Zeca, Manolis Siopis, Kostas Fortounis, Giannis Maniatis, Petros Mantalos, Alexandros Tziolis, Thanasis Androutsos, Dimitris Kourbelis
      Forwards: Kostas Mitroglou, Giorgos Manthatis, Dimitris Diamantakos, Apostolos Vellios, Giannis Gianniotas, Tasos Bakasetas

      Brazil became the first country to qualify for this event after their 3-0 win over Paraguay. Uruguay and Argentina could go in front of them if they win everything and Brazil loses everything, but as they will face eachother one of them will fail to qualify directly (#5 will play a play-off).
    • By Greekaroos
      I believe this match will make or break Michael Skibbe's managerial career.
      it has a feel of 7 June 2003, Spain v Greece. Michael Skibbe has two or three uncapped youngsters from the Olympiacos system plus Mystakidis fom PAOK whom could mix in well with the tough & experienced campaigners of Karnezis, Sokratis, Manolas, Torosidis, Tzavellas, Samaris, Fortounis, Mitroglou & maybe a few others whom have been around the squad for quite a while to create the right formula to cause a upset away to Belgium.
      My prediction is Belgium 1 Greece 1.
       
    • By Omonoia9
      This will probably be the biggest match of the campaign. We can put ourselves in a great position to go to Russia with a win here.
    • By Omonoia9
      Friendly for the ethniki at home to Belarus in Piraeus at Karaiskaki. Good warmup for the bigger game 4 days later.
    • By Omonoia9
      My heart won't be pulled in two directions here. Cyprus looking for their first win at the Bosnians. Of course, last time Kypro went to Bosnian soil, worked out pretty damn well!
    • By Omonoia9
      Hooray, no conflicting emotions here. The ethniki are off to Tallinn to visit Estonia. Need to keep the pace with another win.
    • By Greekaroos
      Greece's Russia 2018 FIFA World Cup campaign begins with a away match against FIFA's newest member Gibraltar on 6 September 2016 at the Estádio Algarve in Portugal.
    • By Greekaroos
      Greece not qualifying for the UEFA Euro 2016 finals tournament in France could work in their favor in qualification for the Russia 2018 FIFA World Cup. The players get a proper off-season break. Complacency will not creep into the squad after being brought back down to earth in Euro 2016 qualifying.
