    Since everyone complains that the FIFA rankings are crap, I reckon we should do our own.

    Write your top 20 list of national teams in the world. The rankings you honestly think are right to you.

    Your first placed national team will recieve 20 points, second placed NT will receive 19 points, third placed NT will recieve 18 points etc etc.

    Points will be added up, to see what posters overall think the top 20 should look like...


    mine........

    01 - Brazil..........20
    02 - France..........19
    03 - Argentina.......18
    04 - Italy...........17
    05 - Czech Republic..16

    Here is my top-20 (well, actually top 30) selections. I do not like the FIFA (Coca Cola) rankings for a variety of reasons. One of them is that the more you play the more chances you have to gain points.

    1-Brazil
    2-Holland
    3-France
    4-Germany
    5-Argentina
    6-Italy
    7-England
    8-Ireland
    9-Turkey
    10-Mexico

    11-Spain
    12-Korea
    13-Denmark
    14-Czech
    15-Cameroon
    16-Japan
    17-Iran
    18-Senegal
    19-USA
    20-Portugal
    -----------------------
    21-Nigeria
    22-Croatia
    23-Uruguay
    24-Sweden
    25-Paraguay
    26-Costa Rica
    27-Columbia
    28-Norway
    29-Romania
    30-Belgium

    United States
    Well here's how my computer system ranks them:

    1. Brazil
    2. Argentina
    3. Portugal
    4. Netherlands
    5. France
    6. Italy
    7. Mexico
    8. Spain
    9. Germany
    10. England
    11. Czech Republic
    12. Sweden
    13. Turkey
    14. U.S.A.
    15. Denmark
    16. Colombia
    17. Romania
    18. Costa Rica
    19. Croatia
    20. Republic of Ireland

    System says that CONMEBOL faces the toughest schedule (10 of the 11 toughest schedules were the 10 CONMEBOL teams, Somalia is the other having played only two games of importance, both against Cameroon).

    Do you see the flaw in your logic here? Talking about recent record and leaving the second place team at the last world cup out of the top 10.
