Default Disney time at FIFA.

So England beat Wales 1-0 on Tuesday night when playing at home, at Wembley stadium, London. Wales was the much better team in the second half and had Robert Earnshaw not missed an absolute sitter from 3 yards right in front of the goal, the game would have been a 1-1 draw. Ashley Young, Manchester United's new acquisition got England's sole first half goal, a lead which did reflect England's first half dominance.

Despite only winning by a single goal, England are ranked 4th in the world according to the official FIFA rankings, while Wales are languishing way down in 117th position!!!

England were apparently 6th after there previous game, but somehow FIFA then raised them to 4th position without having played another game...weird or what?

So, Wales lie with the world's dregs down in 117th position in the same company as some of the world's football minnows such as, Liechtenstein, Haitii, Grenada and "St. Kitts and Nevis"...I never even heard of the latter, never mind know where it is on a map of the world. Wales are a much better team than that on Tuesday night's display. But to say that England rank as 4th in the world is absolutely ridiculous...ahead of Brazil, Uruguay, Italy and Argentina!...I think not.

Then to really put a seal on it all FIFA make the Dutch the world's number 1 side, ahead of Spain??? Wait a minute...Spain are the current world and European champions, while Holland has won sweet FA!!!

Do you think that Mickey Mouse, Dumbo and Donald Duck must have been involved in compiling the FIFA rankings?...It sure looks that way to me.

The rankings have just been reviewed and apparently I am now the number one ranked international football team in the world. Which was news to me to be honest! o__O

In second place is a toaster. Then England in third. Brazil are down at 199, along with Argentina and a box of cereal.

The amazing thing is that all of this is actually FEASIBLE! lol!

I totally agree with you, the rankings make no sense whatsoever. England shouldn't even be in the top 10 based on actualy quality. Spain should be at number one by a country mile. The rankings could only be made more farcical by bringing in three more governing bodies, each with their own ranking system like with boxing. Then England could be ranked 4th, 8th, 56th and 1st all at the same time.....
