To be fair, it makes sense that Uruguay would be so high up, they just won the Copa America.

But Group B is still a nice group of death with Nr.3, Nr.4, Nr.9 and Nr.10 of the World Ranking in it ^^

FIFA-rankings are pretty short term, and wins against higher-ranking opposition mean more points, that means they can change pretty quickly, according to who you meet.

You meet two or three beatable teams that are highly ranked, like, say, you beat Portugal and England, which is doable for basically any team, you get a couple hundred points at once. Let's say you're Germany, ranked #2, and lose to Switzerland, you lose a lot.

FIFA ranking is a good form guide, but only if you keep in mind that it's as much about who you meet as it is about who you play.

Even if Germany had won against Switzerland, if Uruguay win against higher-ranked opposition, tehy get more points.

No big voodoo, nothing to get riled up about. It's also why Germany was very close to Spain after the qualifiers, because they played more matches.

And also why England always rank high, they aren't a bad team, but not great either, but they're good enough to beat pretty much all mid-range teams they meet. This nets you points. The formula is even on the website, if you skim over it, you'll understand it doesn't mean much.

Sure, being #1 vs #100 means something, but the top10 really don't tell you all that much.

Still pretty happy for Uurugay, I like them Wink

2012 gets 100% weighting
2011 gets 50%
2010 gets 30%
2009 gets 20%

that's why Uruguay are still 2nd.

Its a nice little statistic(especially if we can maintain top 7 till the world cup). Idrc tho i dont feel like we deserve but we are there. There were many years where the rankings would.underestimate us. So like w/e... Like i ssid its a nice statisti to.have but i diesnt make a difference to me.

Well, the ranking can make a difference in the seedings of a competition, so it is not fully useless.
