QUIZ: Best FIFA Rankings by Nation

The latest FIFA Rankings have been released and Ireland are back in the Top 30.

The monthly rankings see the Boys in Green rise five places after two wins from two in the Euro 2020 qualifiers.

They are joined 29th with Venezuela and Serbia on 1,484 points.

Meanwhile, Belgium remain top ahead of World Cup winners France and Brazil.

 


England are up to their joint-second highest ranking of fourth and World Cup runners-up Croatia round out the Top 5.

Essentially Meaningless

Of course, let's not beat around the bush here. The FIFA Rankings are essentially meaningless!

It's fair to say they are not really that reflective of how teams actually measure up.

FIFA first introduced them in 1992 at a time when Ireland were challenging at the right end, on the pitch and on the rankings.

Indeed, our highest placing came a year later in August 1993.

So for this week's quiz, we're going to test your knowledge of the FIFA Rankings. Do you know the highest placing each nation has reached?

In the quiz below, we've given you a list of 36 nations. All you need to do is put in the highest ever ranking each has attained since 1992.
