FIFA Ranking: July 2009 – Mexico

June 24, 2009

Mexico will face Venezuela tonight, June 24th, in an international friendly but despite the outcome, Mexico will be surpassed by Costa Rica as 2nd from CONCACAF and could very well  see it’s worst FIFA ranking in history.

According to the writers at Football-Rankings.info, if Mexico loses against Venezuela, they would end the month with 768 points and with a ranking of 35th. Mexico previously bottomed out at 32nd in August of 2008. If Mexico wins against Venezuela, it is likely to end the month with 793 points, giving it a ranking of 31st.

So how will the top five CONCACAF teams fare in a “worst case scenario”* according to the July 2009 data at Football-Rankings?

* (If USA wins against Spain today, and Mexico against Venezuela, their rankings could still improve)

Rank | Team | Points | +/- Ranking | +/- Points

16 | USA | 885 | -2 | -62
30 | Costa Rica | 801 | +11 | +107
35 | Mexico | 768 | -9 | -54
37 | Honduras | 758 | -2 | -3
65 | Jamaica | 520 | 11 | 64

Best case scenario could having USA replacing Croatia as 10th in the world and Mexico replacing Gabon as 31st.
