Ireland fall again in FIFA rankings June 13, 2007Posted by Rambling Man in Sports.
Ireland’s continuous slide in the FIFA rankings continues apace. We are now ranked as 38th in the world, (stuck between Paraguay and Egypt) behind some countries that a good schoolboy team would give a game to (Scotland !).
Not that the FIFA rankings are or were ever an accurate picture of the game or a team’s ability – but they do play a part in seedings for the World Cup and European Championship draws – Ireland could possibly be in pot 5 next time !
Lovely …All together now … there’s only one Steven Staunton …
