Looking at the performance of Poland shows just how weak our qualifying group was tbh.
Every team looks better than us so far tbh, except maybe the yanks and Costa Rica.
Can't believe USA are ranked 5th in the world. That's because most games they play are against the likes of Barbados and Honduras in CONCACAF (sp?). As soon as they come up against decent European opposition, they get stuffed every time. Even our 3rd team with the likes of Kieran Richardson and Zat Knight gave them a lesson last year in a game they took quite seriously.
The FIFA ranking policy makers need a sound thrashing. It is based on performance only, and not performance according to opponents.
Would you believe it, they released a club rankings a few years ago and in that the top Indian club was ranked ahead of Middlesbrough.
