 FIFA World Ranking

   The FIFA World ranking is made by the International Federation of Association Football (FIFA). It is based on match results, according to which the most successful team is ranked highest. Since August 2018, a new calculation model modified from the Elo rating system is in use. The football teams get points for single games, and the number of points is determined by the relative strength of both opponents. To get the final ranking position, these points must be added/subtracted.  



   In April 2019, the position of the Faroe Island’s national football team in the world ranking was 102. At that time, the team had already participated in two qualifiers for the upcoming UEFA European Championship in 2020 and lost both. By contrast, the three leading national teams were Belgium on the first position, followed by France and Brazil.
