    Wales are 9th in the world, above England at 10th and USA all the way down at 28th.

    9th most corrupt?
    No, I did not steal that from somebody on Something Awful.

      Didn't Wales beat Belgium (#2)? They should be #1 then!

        USA is still as high as 28 after that abysmal Gold Cup showing?

        These ranking numbers are silly because they include friendlies. Friendlies are where youth and fringe players get a look from the national coach, rarely is it the team's best squad. It's like saying NFL preseason games matter in judging who the best teams are.

          Yeah, the friendlies thing is a bit silly to say the least - Wales opted to not play any friendlies this summer...

            But they could have climbed even higher if they won matches against Cuba, Canada or New Zealand!
