Scotland set to be just ONE place behind England in latest FIFA rankings

Recommended Posts

SCOTLAND look set to rise to 27th place when the new rankings are revealed in September, with England dropping to 26th.


SCOTLAND will be just ONE place behind England when the latest FIFA rankings are unveiled.


Gordon Strachan’s side have made steady progress up the ratings after being as low as 78th in May last year.


The Scots will rise one spot to 27th when the new table is published on September 18 while the Auld Enemy will drop six places to 26th ahead of their trip north to play us in a friendly at Celtic Park in November .


England and Scotland will be one place above Wales who soar 14 places to 28th.


Scotland's Euro 2016 qualifying rivals Germany will be No.1 after their World Cup triumph in June .


But the other teams in the group are a long way behind us, according to FIFA.


Ireland will languish back in 54th, Poland in 71st and Georgia will be 107th while Gibraltar don’t have a ranking yet.


Scotland have never been above England since the Rankings started in August 1993.

We were almost top 20 a few months ago.


13th in 07.


I think sometimes the fifa rankings get unfair criticism, the top 20 are usually fairly accurate.


European sides are fairly well reflected, other nations less so. I imagine we will also plummet as soon as the competitive games restart.
