FIFA World Ranking: Macedonia two places from the 100!

FIFA98th team of the world. That’s Macedonia according the newest FIFA ranking-list that was released today. Worst of the Balkans, one of the worst in Europe. Are we really that bad?

The 0:2 home defeat  by Ireland put Macedonia on the 98th place on the FIFA/Coca-Cola World Ranking. With 60 points less than May and 13 places down, Macedonia faces the 100, which is only 2 places away and could be reached in August or even July. Shame!
