For the second straight month, Mexico have remained at 15 in FIFA’s Rankings. Many have pointed out how FIFA rankings are pointless but they do play a role in seeding for the World Cup and other FIFA tournaments.
Mexico at 15 sounds about right, all things considered. Since the FIFA Rankings were created, Mexico’s average position has been #14. As the graph below shows, Mexico has crept into the top 10 a few times, peaking at #5 but there have been some lows such as being at #27 in 2010.
Mexico tends to make it to the Round of 16 every World Cup but not much further. Will this year be any different? Ojala.
