  1. This friendly doesn't count. Possible reasons: number of substitutions, non-FIFA referee etc. Canada will have 454 points - 73rd. FIFA Ranking: September 2012 preview (II).
  2. Thanks peter3. Official ranking out: FIFA.com.
  3. Yes, Mr. Quarry told me the CSA wanted only one game for this FIFA date. He didn't tell me why.
  4. Yes, I offered Armenia to Canada and also told them about the tournament. Morgan Quarry told me they were also approached on this matter by the Cyprus FA but CMNT were looking for one game.
  5. Cyprus FA wanted Canada to participate in the tournament, but Canada were looking for one game only.
  6. Steaua are the current holders of the trophy - so it's a pretty big win for Poli and Ricketts. An interview in Romanian: http://liga2.prosport.ro/seria-2/cupa/rickitelli-a-sarbatorit-on-line-golul-cu-steaua-cel-mai-important-8915510
  7. Scored against Gaz Metan Severin in the second league.
  8. The fixtures for the new season are already out. Timisoara are not on the list. Waiting for CAS' verdict.
  9. It would be extremely silly if they don't qualify for EURO 2016 - there will be 23 places available.
  10. I'd love to see a Football Confederation of the Americas or something like that I think CONCACAF wouldn't want this - the Gold Cup is every two years and brings tons on cash. Copa America is only 4 years. I'd like to see it happening, but I don't think it will - in my lifetime.
  11. Actually you're more like 7th - so close. 2014 World Cup seeding for CONCACAF teams (1 April 2011).
  12. An USSF official told me it's not set yet.
  13. Yes, you're right. That's why I think CONCACAF are forcing FIFA's hand with regards to the schedule. We'll see...
  14. Hmm... About T&T - those 10 valuable games didn't actually help them in the end. They failed to qualify for the Gold Cup. What's their strength these days? The MedioTempo seems to imply the March 2011 ranking will be used to seed the teams. I think we'll see something like this: Pot 1: USA, Mexico, Honduras Pot 2: Jamaica, Costa Rica, Cuba Pot 3: Panama, Canada, El Salvador, Grenada, Trinidad and Tobago, Haiti Pot 4: Antigua and Barbuda, Guyana, Suriname, St. Kitts and Nevis, Guatemala, Dominica Pot 5: Puerto Rico, Barbados, Curacao, St. Vincent and the Grena
  15. 4, but you actually need 6. It seems the intercontinental play-offs will be played in October and November 2013, so that leaves the two September 2013 dates for the 3rd place playoff. However, there are plenty match dates available, I don't see the need to change the qualifying system.
  16. I'll try to run a simulation as soon as the Gold Cup groups are out - with minimum and maximum possible points. The values displayed in the table are computed assuming every team loses its all matches between now and July 27th. (Of course, that's not possible). Those are basically the minimum possible values for each team.
  17. You have to realise Canada isn't quite a special team - so many FAs will pass on this opportunity. Basically the CSA have to take what's being offered. The CSA have contacted a bunch of European and African teams but none were interested. Now, they're focusing on CONCACAF/CONMEBOL teams with Grenada and Cuba at the top of the list. It's easier for teams like Honduras and Costa Rica to play the FIFA Ranking game, but for Canada it's quite difficult.
  18. Canda play against Greece on Feb 9th.
  19. Still negotiating. Le Canada attend le OK de la FAF
  20. Canada tied for 7th with Panama. Still in the first pot, but it's very shaky. Grenada only 7 points behind you and this doesn't include the very likely March friendly in Europe. 2014 FIFA World Cup seeding for CONCACAF teams (10 December 2010)
  21. Hehe... I have to say I quickly clicked the link then browsed CONCACAF's website for a couple of minutes to be sure it was a joke Cuba and Jamaica set to rocket through the rankings. FIFA Ranking: December 2010 final preview.
