U.S . Falls to 30th in New FIFA Rankings

July 2, 2008

I have seen some jokes and/or questions about the US dropping all the way to 30th in the FIFA rankings. I believe what it comes down to is that we have not played any real games. European based teams played in the Euro, those count more. South America has pushed right into World Cup qualifiers, I think those count more as well. The US played a murderer row of friendlies, but they were just friendly matches. Oh, I guess we did play two qualifiers, but Barbados does not count that much either. Add it all together and you get a decent sized drop.
