fifa is at it again!!! the world cup is like the miss universe contest, lets see how many countries around the world are happiest, at the same time!!! if the 32 best teams were invited to the cup, most would be from europe and the america's!!! some of the teams that didn't make it, could pop many of these teams!!! france...who in their group was a contender??? i guarantee, they won't make the semi's!!!

FIFA are amazing. All the matches were very close ( with maybe the BE-US match an exception but for Tim Howard).  I don't understand how France can be ahead of Germany or Columbia, how Switzerland can be number ten in front of the US or Mexico or how Mexico can be ahead of the US at all let alone two spots.  Perhaps the most ridiculous standing in the table is England at 16.  Theu collected one point in three matches and the point they took was in game that played like a late season friendly.

FIFA are amazing and not in a good way.

@JosephKoslowski France is in first because they have looked and played like the best team in the tournament. The rankings will probably stir up a bit after Germany beats France and Colombia beats Brazil haha

@JosephKoslowski Mexico is ahead of the U.S because they are a better team . They have played  really well  In the World Cup and against stronger teams . The united states lost two games  , were mexico lost only one game in the tournament and only reason why U.S advanced was because of point not wins.
