FIFA World Rankings May 2010 & DungaAlthough during the month of April 2010 there were no official games, we witnessed movements insids FIFA’s World Rankings. According to FIFA changes are the result of the “devaluation of past matches”. Most significant change was that of Brazil outsing Spain for first place.

Bookmakers have long been speculating who are the most probable winners for this year’s World Cup in Africa and their rankings are somehow different than those of FIFA. England, for example is still highly favourite and is usually rated as the third most likely team to win the cup.
