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.
