S. Korea Move Up 2 Spots to 59th in Nov. FIFA Rankings

S. Korea Move Up 2 Spots to 59th in Nov. FIFA Rankings

The next ranking will be released on December 21. The Asian Football Confederation's World Cup entries are Australia, Iran, Japan, Saudi Arabia and South Korea, all of whom are outside the top 32.

Despite qualifying for next year's World Cup undefeated, England have dropped three spots to a 17-year low of 15th.

His cue was taken by Nigerians all over social media, and on television and radio.

Influential sports journalist Sola Aiyepeku expressed shock, while Woke Popoola called for a deeper understanding of how the rankings work.

While the ranking process is a tad complicated, it is explained in FIFA's Ranking Procedures.

This puts Nigeria eighth on the continent, behind Senegal, Tunisia, Egypt, Congo DR, Morocco, Burkina Faso and African champions Cameroon.

Host Russia is the lowest-ranked team at No. 65, though it has played mostly lower-valued friendlies in the past year which weighs heavily in the four-year cycle of results Federation Internationale de Football Association uses to calculate the standings.

If Fifa went on rankings then Chile would get the nod, now ranked 10th in the latest World rankings.

Peru's spot at the FIFA World Cup is in danger following reports the Peruvian government plans to take control of its football association.

Of the four teams beaten in Europe's World Cup qualifying play-offs, only Italy move up the rankings, despite losing and drawing with Sweden in the month since October's rankings were published.
