Did you know that there are soccer team rankings which rank country teams in different places, based on their performance and points accumulated? This ranking system helps them become the best teams in the world at that moment, as it reflects their strengths. The teams receive these points after playing FIFA international matches and being awarded there depending on how well they did. This ranking system is around for years, although this version or it is not the same as it was at the very beginning. As expected, the ranking system was criticized because it couldn’t successfully reflect the performance of the teams, so the calculation methods received updates as time went by. Here’s what you need to know about football rankings.

Monthly FIFA World Rankings

FIFA first introduced the rankings back in 1992, in a list which ranked the teams based on their strengths for means of comparison. However, the ranking system had to be changed quite a few times, following the criticism that said the soccer rankings are not accurate. Because of that, in 1999 and 2006, FIFA implemented huge changes so nobody feels bad about their rank anymore. Moreover, FIFA has changed a lot ever since too, as its membership now has 211 members instead of the 167 it had at first. Nowadays, FIFA publishes the rankings on a monthly basis for the most part, and Thursdays before the release date are usually considered the deadline for games to be taken into consideration. Afterward, the FIFA standings make it to the world.

Calculation Method

The association introduced this version of the world football rankings calculation in 2018, and it is based on a rating system known as Elo. Basically, teams receive points or lose them depending on their performance during important matches. As such, they use a special formula to determine the final ranking. The formula goes like: P = Pbefore + I(W – We) Pbefore stands for how many points a team has before the game starts, whereas the I represents the coefficient of importance and W the end result of the match. Meanwhile, We represents the result that was expected before the start of the match.

This Year’s Rankings

In 2019, the ranking has Belgium on top with 1737 points, at least at the moment, and it doesn’t come as a surprise. Belgium is one of the teams that has been at the top of the FIFA soccer world rankings for the longest, together with Brazil, Italy, Argentine, France, the Netherlands, Germany, and Spain. The 2nd place is held by France, whereas the 3rd belongs to Brazil. Ranks 4 and 5 belong to England and Croatia. The top 10 is being dominated by European teams so far, and the lowest ranking of the world, respectively the 211th place, is owned by San Marino.

Other Awards Offered

Aside from the football country ranking, FIFA also gives some other prized to its teams. They are, as well, based on the strengths and performance of the teams. The awards offered annually are for the Team of the Year, Best Mover of the Year and the performance by countries.

Final Thoughts

FIFA World Rankings are fun to keep an eye on if you have a favorite team you want to see on top. All that matters is that you keep supporting the team, and they will always push for their best and strive to take over the ranking.
