    Not that I put much weight into the FIFA rankings, but Poland moved up 5 places to 17th place. This is the highest Poland has ever been in the FIFA rankings since FIFA started ranking teams in 1993.

    if nothing else the rankings determine what seed a team gets when the draw comes for qualifications to major tournaments

    Over the last 20 years Poland was ranked low and was seeded as a third best team in a group (having to play against two quality teams) and hence we never qualified for the WC

    now that Poland is getting better we're the second seed in a group giving us a better chance of making it out of our group

    if we maintain our level of play we should be in a position to have a shot at making the WC more often and maybe even making the EC
