England National Team 2012


England have climbed to third place in the latest FIFA world rankings, their highest position on record.

Roy Hodgson’s side exited EURo 2012 at the quarterfinal stage and have failed to reach the last four of a major competition since 1996.

Brazil are 13th – one position below Greece and three beneath Denmark.

FIFA state their rankings are based on all international matches, including friendlies, played in the previous four years. The criteria included are the outcome, status of the match, opponent’s strength and the strength of team’s confederation. Wins against high ranking opponents in competitive matches are very valuable, while only results over the last 12 months count in full. Those from the previous year count half, while games played up to three and four years earlier have even less significance.

Since the 2010 World Cup, England has won 13, drawn five and lost three.

FIFA have stressed that England’s poor record at major tournaments has little bearing on the rankings because only matches played within the last four years are taken into account. Instead, England accumulated most of their rankings points during successful qualifying campaigns for the 2010 World Cup and Euro 2012.

At Euro 2012, England secured two wins and two draws in four matches.
