    OMG I just checked and I can't believe that's true!

    If you understand the ranking system then it's actually quite a logical thing - the 2006 world cup is now wiped from the calculations and since there were a number of teams above England in the rankings who did a lot worse this time than then, they were bound to drop (witness Portugal and Italy falling from above to below, and France who were 1 place behind us dropping something like 13 spots!
    marc71178 - President and founding member of AAAS - we don't only appreciate when he does well, but also when he's not quite so good!

    Beware the evils of Kit-Kats - they're immoral apparently.

    Don't be a spoilsport.

    It's still a joke England has gone uop in the rankings following their WC showing.

    Friendlies count for the rankings too though, and England won all of theirs against some reasonably highly-ranked teams.

    Hey Steulen, you really should stop the anti-England stuff, after all your own countries reaction to your defeat seems to be very English, at least from afar

    Friendlies count but have a very small weight. Perhaps 1/4 that of a WC game.

    I live in Glasgow now, can't help it. And I do honestly think having the current England team as 7th best in the world is a joke.

    FTR, you'll have to find another stick to beat me with than my allegiance to Dutch football

    Glasgow, my apologies.

    Don't get the link, but actually FTR England being seventh is a joke, but TBH, the entire ranking system is a nonsense.
