I really liked the New Zeland team.... Hope to see them do even better in 2014.... They played with more heart than Italy, France, England all put together...

That's what you get with lesser teams reid, like my own northern ireland, theres little quality, but you can't rubbish their efforts and passion to do well for their country.
We've had some tremendous results. well done kiwi's

It does look kinda odd seeing some of the big names down so far in the list, but that's what this WC was all about. Small nations stepping up their game and some larger sides failing to adjust. I have to say I'm proud of Uruguay and I'm not even remotely south american, they really deserve it and will get better over time.

Seeing USA above England gives me a certain satisfaction, but I do think England are a better side overall. They've had a bad run of games, but they have all the pieces and just need to put them together into a solid tournament team. I think this will wake them up and they can return to winning ways

I guess everything looks right. But I would put mexico and s. Korea ahead of usa and england
BigShel (Philadelphia Union) 6 years ago
South Korea yes Mexico never.
Joeymac (Manchester United) 6 years ago
Agree with bigshel, south korea could be higher than us, they've proven themselves, but mexico.... No! It's not that they're necessarily worse than us, it's just that they are our rivals hahaha. I guess its because we finished first in our group
HangTime (Chelsea) 6 years ago

Tony (footytube staff) 6 years ago
It does look an odd league table, when you see some great names way down the list, like northern ireland.... Lmao
Anfieldhero (Liverpool) 6 years ago
France.... 28th. No wonder! I thought Swiss should have been slightly higher
Soccergal293 (Barcelona) 6 years ago
LOL why is New Zealand Bold? I'm just happy that Australia beat New Zealand We also beat quite a few other teams.... It was obvious that North Korea would come last LOL
Juno (AC Milan) 6 years ago
