World Football Rankings – Bottom 107

Aug 2010 – So where exactly is Malaysia ranked amongst the 207 teams ranked by FIFA?

Well, Malaysia is the 142nd top football nation in the world according to FIFA. From the bottom, Malaysia is the 65th bottom football nation in the world. Yes, Malaysia is in the bottom one third.  

Thailand, Singapore, Vietnam and Indonesia are all ranked above Malaysia. More incredibly, Cape Verde Islands, Rwanda, Faroe Islands, Congo and Fiji are also ranked above Malaysia.

Truly a sad situation for a team which has qualified for the Olympics twice and a team which was considered an Asian football power house.

    “More incredibly, Cape Verde Islands(…)are also ranked above Malaysia.” Dude do you watch soccer? Cape Verde tied Portugal at Portugal. Has beat great teams like Senegal and Algeria. Has had players naturalized in different countries (Fernandes playing for Switzerland) and born to Cape Verdean Parents (Nani, Varela, Miguel, and many others from Portugal) Descendents: Vieira (born in Senegal to Cape Verdean parents, Henrik Larson (Cape Verdean father), Evra (France), … what does malasya has to show for?

      Hi Omar,

      No offence intended for Cape Verde. Cape Verde may have some famous descendents but as a nation, they are still in the footballing wilderness.

      Malaysia has qualified for the Olympics twice. I believe that internationally, this is a better track record than having a few good games. Having said that, the standard of football in Malaysia today is really horrendous. Possibly worse than Cape Verde. 🙂

    If we were part of that confederation, we would qualify for the olympics as well. Tell me about the good games that Malaysia has played?
