Whether we move top 50 or bottom 50 does not phase me one bit. The English are doing what is beneficial for their football. That is their rule. remember the U.S. has eligibility rules for soccer also, and we follow these rules. We just have to develop something for us. I would like the see in the future, where the CFU revisit a proleague with 18 to 20 teams. Promotion and demotion. Quite a bit of money to do that though.

The loss to Panama in the Gold Cup quarterfinals last month wouldn't have hurt our rankings, since losses or wins in PK-shootouts are not taken into consideration 'point-wise' with regards to FIFA rankings.  The loss in PKs, is not considered a 'loss' by FIFA --- only wins or losses in Regulation time (or extra-time) are taken into consideration.    :)

Yes, morale boost for the fans, socawarriors, nonbelieving investors, contracts for our players like Alvin Jones, Nicholas Dillon, Ball-Pest, transfers to europe for Jonathan Glenn, etc.

Why ask specifically at this point in time? For what it's worth, rankings however flawed are one measuring stick of progress

Care to elaborate or point out reasons for disagreement?

Are rankings not one metric (among many) to measure where your program is?

Rankings have some worth. The higher ranking helped us avoid a wcq game against a team like Nicaragua.. We seen the scare they gave the yardies.

Rankings might not be 100% accurate. But it gives us a good measuring stick of where we are at and how far we have to go. I believe this is our highest ranking in years.

T&T will end the year in the top 50 of the FIFA Rankings after moving up to #49 in the latest rankings.
This marks the first time the senior national team has cracked the top 50 since May 2006.
We remain #4 in CONCACAF and #1 in the CFU

22   MEX Mexico   
32   USA USA     
37   CRC Costa Rica   
49   TRI Trinidad and Tobago
54   JAM Jamaica
64   PAN Panama


FYI former perennial big 6 member Honduras continues to fall like a big stone now at 101 behind Guatemala and even El Salvador

Being inside the top 50 is a tremendous for our program and it can open more opportunities for our players, way to finish the year strong. Congrats to coach Hart and the team :beermug:

Cape Verde's squad isn't that bad actually - I think they have some good 2nd gen migrants - typical for island nations :p

Well done Warriors. Those wins against Panama away and against Guatemala away, latter during a World Cup qualifier and more points rich, were great for the last rise in the rankings.

Cape Verde had some good results this year.They beat Portugal in a friendly. Probably the reserves. The tied Tunisia. Tied with DR Congo, and beat the other Congo. Tied Zambia. Beat up São Tomé 7-1.

Interesting that the only CAF nation in the Top 30 is Ivory Coast.

Don't mean to step in and correct yuh Asylum. But Algeria is in Africa too. They are the second CAF nation under 30.

I know what you mean though. Geographically the North African teams are CAF. But culturally they have more ties to the middle east than Sub Sahara Africa. I occasionally make the mistake of not identifying them as a CAF team too.

I think Ghana is probably better than Ivory Coast. But the ranking tools say otherwise.

Good call. Dahis de price of skimming casually. Did not notice them above Ghana.
