I know most of us hate the ranking system but Scotland have moved up 10 places to 29th, shows the good progress made by Strachan.

Good to see considering they use the ranking for deciding pots in qualifying draws.

 

That's about as far as I give a toss though.

Yes I have been saying it for years the ranking is a joke......no disrepect to Northern Ireland as they have done the bizz and deserve that good fortune but they are no where near the 22nd best team in the world.

Teams like England for example get the easiest groups playing lower ranked teams and rake in the co efficent points, when they do lose its against a far higher ranked team.....usually, so dont lose a lot of.ground.

Its a joke and should be scrapped.

Now you see the likes of the Dutch complaining about it as they are now dropping down the rankings and facing a harder route......I believe they have France or some other quality team to contend with.

Like many things in this world some people only complain when it effects them

Northern Ireland reached their highest position in Fifa's official rankings as Confederations Cup winners Germany returned to first place.

Michael O'Neill's side recorded wins over New Zealand and Azerbaijan in June to move up six places to 22nd.

Germany, who beat Chile to win the Confederations Cup on Sunday, moved above Brazil and Argentina to go top for the first time in two years.

 

England are 13th, Wales dropped from 13th to 20th and Scotland are 58th.

Northern Ireland have not lost or conceded a goal in three matches and are second in their World Cup qualifying group, behind world champions Germany.

Shows how stupid the ranking system is.....also shows how important it is to win your games, even friendlies to get higher up that list.

NI fully deserve that for the great results in recent competitive games.

With cammy though on friendlies , they should never count as ranking points.
