FIFA Ranking - Haiti cracks the top 50!

 

The FIFA ranking for July is out and according to the experts at the governing body the Russian team that competed at the 2017 Confederation Cup is a minnows compared to Haiti. There must be something dangerously wrong in the ranking methodology. 

Haiti has lost or tied most of its games versus the second tier of CONCACAF teams which consequently knocked the Grenadiers out of all regional competitions for this year. The FIFA ranking declared Haiti the fourth best CONCACAF team way ahead of 3 of the region's 6 remaining contenders for the World Cup. Panama, Honduras, and Trinidad are at 52, 72, and 78 respectively. 

According to the  ranking South Korea, Ghana and various European nations like Scotland and Norway would be lucky to get a tie versus Haiti if any of these teams were to play the Grenadiers this month. Haiti vs Russia? Don't bet your life. According to the same ranking, Curacao would also pulverize the Russians!
