Scholari blames FIFA for poor ranking

As the 2014 World cup approaches, Brazil national team head coach Luiz Filipe Scholari has blamed FIFA for the poor ranking of the national team. Scholari says that the criterion used in the ranking is funny and absurd. The Samba boys are currently placed 22nd, their worst ever ranking in history.

FIFA's ranking takes into account results in both official and non-official games. Brazil have not beaten any full-strength top team since 2009 and have won only one game since Scolari was appointed manager in November.

Brazil will be hosting the 2014 World Cup and there are many critics over their credibility to use home advantage bag the World Cup trophy. They have worn the title six times in 1958, 1962, 1970, 1982, 1994 and 2002.

Spain, Germany, Argentina, Croatia, Netherlands, Portugal, Colombia, England, Italy and Ecuador are holding the first ten positions with Somalia, Djibouti, Andaria, Anguilla, Bhutan San Marino and Turks closing the last seven positions.
