Turkiye Slips Two Spots in Latest FIFA World Ranking

Turkiye Slips Two Spots in Latest FIFA World Ranking
By Nathan L. Redd

With only a few days remaining until Turkiye's Milli Takim takes the pitch once again, the team has slipped two spots to #19 in the latest FIFA world rankings released last week. Poland jumped three spots to leap-frog ahead of Turkiye into the 18th spot in the rankings. Italy, Brazil, Argentina, France, and Germany round out the top five. Spots 6-10 belong to Netherlands, Portugal, England, Spain, and Czech Republic. Ukraine, Croatia, Cameroon, Scotland, and Romania claim spots 11-15. Greece, despite being thrashed by Turkiye earlier this year, remains at #16, while Russia drops a spot to #17. After Turkiye at #19 is 20th-ranked Mexico.

The biggest mover in the new rankings is Congo DR, who jumped 23 spots up to settle in at #61. The full FIFA world rankings list is available at http://www.fifa.com/en/mens/statistics/index/0,2548,All-May-2007,00.html.
