Here is what FIFA's website has to say about it:<br /><br />"The confederations' weighting are calculated based on the number of wins the representatives of a <br />confederation in the final competitions of the last three World Cups have recorded against teams representing the other confederations. For example, the more times that AFC teams beat teams from other confederations, the higher the weighting for the AFC. For statistical reasons, the lowest possible weighting is 0.85 (weakest confederation) and the highest is 1.0 (strongest confederation)."Steve_TheBestElevenhttp://www.thebesteleven.comnoreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-2973221944786129741.post-30077321062686268212011-03-25T20:53:56.810-04:002011-03-25T20:53:56.810-04:00Does FIFA explain how exactly the strenght of conf...Does FIFA explain how exactly the strenght of confederation is calculated?

USA has only ~800 points for the last 4 years, so no way did they get 1774.8 points from that most recent match against Algeria here. Spain has 1880 points total, and they won the World Cup.<br /><br />http://www.fifa.com/worldfootball/ranking/lastranking/gender=m/fullranking.htmlAnonymousnoreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-2973221944786129741.post-84889676491943135542011-03-25T16:15:46.646-04:002011-03-25T16:15:46.646-04:00wow it id very complicatedwow it id very complicatedWatchMUFChttp://watchmufc.comnoreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-2973221944786129741.post-7778340275321156172011-03-25T12:04:49.585-04:002011-03-25T12:04:49.585-04:00This is an excellent and interesting breakdown, th...This is an excellent and interesting breakdown, thanks so much for putting it together!Anonymousnoreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-2973221944786129741.post-18300935433581892292011-03-25T10:32:40.665-04:002011-03-25T10:32:40.665-04:00Thank you!Thank you!briannoreply@blogger.com
