After the WC, imagine the point drop for Netherlands, Colombia, Yugoslavia, Czech Republic, and Romania. WC games are worth 2X their regular value in the FIFA point system. The rankings will definately get a huge overhaul, but possibly not in the top 3.

Even if Argentina wins the WC and Brazil and France gets knocked out in the 1st round, the rankings will still show that Brazil and France are ahead of Argentina:dazed: :rolleyes:

We all know the fifa ranking is Sh!t. The czechs were ranked top 5 for years even through they sucked after Euro 2000. Colombia were ranked top 5 after copa america aswell but failed to qualify to the world cup and Brazil are untouchable no matter how they play.

FIFA rankings are way off, I don't understand it.

llok at Yugoslavia, after getting thumped 6-1 in Euro, and drawing to Slovenia, losing to Spain, they went on to finish 3rd in their group behind Russia and Slovenia, they've lost a string of friendlies and they've improved a couple of spots :dazed: :eek: :eek:
