FIFA Rankings Per Capita

FIFA World Rankings Teams

A flaw with measuring the best international football team in the world is that each country is different in terms of population. Therefore, larger countries always have an advantage because they have a larger pool of potential players to pull from. The following list will somewhat factor out this problem by rating each team by their FIFA points per head of population. This table is not claimed to be a clear cut method, but at least it gives an indication as to the teams that are punching above their weight (or not).

There now follows a listing of the current FIFA world rankings per capata for May 2017
