By Nathan L. Redd

In the latest FIFA world rankings released today, Fatih Terim's "Milli Takim" moved up two spots to settle in at #22. The team is up two spots after having fallen several spots in the July 2007 rankings.

The top five remained the same with Brazil, Argentina, Italy, France, and Germany. There was little movement in the 10-20 range, with Poland up one spot to #20 and Uruguay, led by Fenerbahce star Diego Lugano at #21. Behind Turkiye at #22 is Scotland, Russia, and Bosnia-Herzegovina. The biggest drop in the top 50 was Fenerbahce star Stephen Appiah's native Ghana, who fell six spots to #43. The biggest jump of the top 50 was Korea, who moved up eight spots to #50. The biggest overall jump was Iraq who leaped to #64 following their impressive Asian performance over the summer.
