This year 2007 we see alot of changes in the FIFA World Ranking standing. Just a few month back we see Italy which won the world cup in 2006 became world ranking number one and France shoot up in second spots while Brazil which won the most world cups drops to number three position. Japan who fail to defend as a campion in the Asain cups drop to 41 position and south Korea moves up to 50 position.
With the 2007 copa America game this month where the final was play between Brazil and Argentina and eventually Brazil won the cups by beating Argentina by two goals became FIFA World Ranking number one. Argentina who lost to Brazil and the favourite to win the Copa America cups is now world ranking number two. Italy drops to thirds position and follows by France and Germany. England the most talk teams in the world are out of the top 10 ranking, there are now on the 12th position due to there recent bad performers in their games.
Countries like USA are in the 17 the place, Croatia a good result in the Euro 2008 qualifying round are up in the six position behind Germany. Malaysia a country where I lived is drops to 156 position after a very bad result in the recent Asian cups.
