The latest FIFA World Rankings were released today, and thanks to the vagaries of international time zones, this was all updated prior to the results of the Oceania World Cup wins for American Samoa and Samoa. The significance of that? Their wins aren’t yet reflected in the rankings, and they both remain firmly rooted to the bottom.
The two Samoas can of course look forward to the guarantee of climbing the rankings next month thanks to their respective wins yesterday.
But since the official rankings still lists them as joint last we get to follow all of their Oceania World Cup qualifying group games as official World’s Worst matches.
Both will play again on Thursday 24th November, and then face each other on Saturday 26th November.
No change for our other three World’s Worst nations; Andorra, Montserrat and San Marino, none of whom saw any action this month.
