  • Usa #5 in latest Fifa rankings

    Did any of my fellow futbol fans see the latest FIFA world rankings. USA #5. You have got to be kidding me!!!!! I think France was 8th or 9th. We don't have a player on our team that would crack the starting lineup for the French team. If we played them in a friendly, they would destroy us.

    2 questions.

    How do they come up with the world rankings?
    Will the US even get out of group play this summer?

    Wow, that is high. I don't know how this system works but right through it doesn't seem to be very accurate. Some of the European nations in particular seem to be lower than I would expect them to be.

      but really, a lot of our guys play in england. and france is the team that screwed the pooch last world cup. goose eggs.

        my bad twotone, I didn't do a search before I posted that. I like Beasley he's quick. Nobody else on our team scares anybody. I know Mc Bride has played well at times for Fulham, and Bocanegra as well. I guess I'm being pessimistic about the summer ahead of us. I'm excited though.

          If I could remember how to give you a cp I would. Sorry for stepping on your thread. Good find on espn.com. Sometimes I go to msnbc.com for soccer, i mean futbol news. i seem to use the spanish spelling for football so we don't get confused around here.

            #5?

            There are much better teams in Europe and SouthAmerica than the US

            US and Mexico are overrated, because of their W-L record. They have a lot of wins, but they are against teams from the CONCACAF. I mean, it's not that hard to win against El Salvador or Guatemala

                The ranking seems just about right, considering the us has been destroying their opponents of late, considering starting their b and c teams since alot of the players play abroad.
                Go Broncos, Capitals, and Orioles



                Thanks SNK16

                  We may have players that play abroad, but our best players in the EPL are our goalies. My boy Freidel is a beast. I'm not sure where Casey Keller is now.

                  Is Tim Howard still on Man U? I watch some of their games but I haven't seen him in a while.

                      Cool. Thanks for the info. I saw something about that in the paper but there was no time or date listed. The Charlotte Observer sucks. I'm thankful for the Denver Post, and Rocky Mountain news online pages.

                        first of all, i'm not braging myself, well maybe just lil' bit...lol
                        I don't believe those rankings, germany is a 20+ and they favorites for the WC, they always are...
                        The game against you guys, you will maybe win or even a draw...but expect germany at the world cup, they always get there...

                        It is truly something in your blood, you will never play soccer like us, and we will never play basketball like you...simple as that, you are born with it

                        watch an english guy play soccer and a brazilian, the difference is huge...those who like soccer know what i'm saying...
