NI fully deserve that for the great results in recent competitive games.
With cammy though on friendlies , they should never count as ranking points.


I agree on friendlies but then any country that hosts a tournament will tumble doen the rankings as they will only play friendlies for 18 months

You may well be right but my point is they are far superior to any of the home nations and the Republic, be great getting up those rankings as it makes life easier but I have always hated them even when Scotland were ranked a lot higher............should really do away with the whole lot IMO but that will never happen.

 

Fairness and sporting integrity in these situations should always be at the forefront no matter if you are Malta or the mighty Brazil.

Kosovo

GROUP B

FIFA rankings are a joke, have never made sense to me, though we deserve some credit for our run off form

Yeah Norn that's how I would like to see it, a fair system and as LB says "luck of the draw". I cant remember seeing groups that were as shit as the one you posted before the seeding came into effect but there is a chance of that, the way it should be. The seeding system is wrong as it stands because these teams not only get an easier draw in the qualification process they are also seeded if it goes to a play off then the seeding comes into effect in the actual tournament proper too..............that's not right.
