Canada 104th in next FIFA rankings - worst ever spot


Recommended Posts

Canada is set to "achieve" its worst ever FIFA ranking ever, 104th (103rd in March 2007 was old low).

Hope the little islands we get chosen for next week @ wcq draw for Wcq next fall will give the team a chance to become a team finally & improve its fifa ranking.

Rankings don't have any impact on current WCQ. The only way this affects us is for our lads getting work permits in Europe/UK potentially. We do well in this WCQ, GC and some friendlies and we're back in top 50-60.

Just curious, how does a nations ranking effects potential european work permits for its citizens?

Yes & no they dont because march 2011 seedings were used for concacaf wcq draw (cuba was 6th in conc. at time & got. bye unlike canada). all others except conmebol will use july 2011 rankings for seedings..

For details per confederation, go to http://www.football-rankings.info/. ..

This guy is so thorough he even corrects fifa computer.. see his july 2011 list before fifa issues theirs.

What if were ranked 110? Or 80? Or 99? Would we be any more or less happier?

The point is, we should never be satisfied with any ranking and ALWAYS try to improve and make it to the World Cup.

We need more friendlies and prepare for WCQ now. We need, we need, we need ... Imagine being ranked as low as this AND still making the Hex.

put it into perspective. The Bahamas beat Turks & Caicos twice and jumped up 40 some odd spots.... US Virgin Islands have THREE EVER wins and jumped up the same by beating the juggernaught British Virgin Islands. So you can never put stock in these rankings, unfortunately they determine wcq draws. We'll see what happens to our ranking when we get 6 games against teams similar to the ones Ive just mentioned.

The absurdity of the rankings method is exposed here. Does anyone think that Cuba should be ranked ahead of us. Their Gold Cup performance was off-the-charts bad but we unfortunately didn't get Cuba (or Grenada, equally bad) in our group draw.

And we are just one spot (and not many FIFA points) ahead of Antigua. Where the h* is Antigua??
