WTF is going on, I know it's been there for a while, what the HELL is italy doing tied with the US? FIFA point system is terribly inaccurate and in the end show's nothing. Based on this now mexico is higher ranked team than Italy, what the hell? have they been sending fifa free bags of marihuana. England's been always ranked up high, but they haven't done crap since 1966, we always go further than them in the world cup, most of the time up to the final, and yet they are always ranked above. I don't know how to figure out these guy's anyway...

I couldnt agree more roma21...

Germany have beaten both japan and iran at their homes, and are ranked lower than them... They also drew with argentina and brasil at home. My two year old nephew can make better ranks than FIFA.

Anyways, these rankings dont matter, becuase when in 90 when we won the wc we were rank 14 and in wc 2002 when we reached finals we were rank 21.

England better brazil are you nuts? portugal creamed you, england has always been a good team and in the eyes of the english alone, has been a cup contender, as I said, in the eyes of the english alone.

yes: traditionally,england have been losers ( except that 1 one wc in which they beat us by little help of lady luck and refree). But look at this england team... gerrard, lampard, joe cole beckham.. I think its the strongest midfield in the world right now...

This team, if it plays its cards right.. can sure challenge the bests

PS: I am not english

I know your German, I think that can be easily established. I have to disagree with you on their midfield. The Italian midfield is just as good if not better. Zambrotta, Pirlo, Gatusso, Del piero, Totti. I think the only one that stands out in the English team is lampard. All the same, given that I agree with you, the english style of play is not very effective, a tight defence with quick midfielders can easily put them to rest. Although, Yes, they have good players, as an entity they rarely achieve anything. I would be highly surprised if they advanced further than the quarter finals in Germany.
