    How are Netherlands 20th when they've failed to qualify for the last two tournaments?

    Seems a bit mad alright. Would their second and third place finishes at the last two World Cups still stand to them?

    FIFA rankings are in an 8 year cycle. I'd say they'll fall off a cliff edge come next year.

    They'll move up to 20th (from 29th) on Monday, aided by victories over Belarus and Sweden, but it does seem very high for a team who have been stuttering through qualification and who have failed to make even the play-offs two campaigns in a row. They finished third in their group this campaign and fourth in the last campaign, having picked up only 13 points and lost 5 games.

    The Elo rating actually has them ranked 13th in the world, which is even more surprising to me.

    It's a 4 year cycle these days, nevertheless the Netherlands' current confounding high ranking is on feet of clay.

    Key:

    FUBAR (Floreat Ultonia's Boolean Algorithm)

    Teams are ranked by points won only in WC 2018 qualifying

    FIFA

    All games since October 2013 count towards ranking, with greater weighting for more recent and lesser for friendlies

    UEFA

    All and only competitive games since September 2012 count, with lesser weighting for those before September 2014. The 'Nations League' draw is based on this ranking and is color-coded

    Elo

    Similar to system used to rank chess players globally

    it should be about where you finish in your last campaign(s). And anything that says Boolean in an algorithm for calculation is definitely on a hiding to nothing.

    We should be 2nd seeds for next qualifying, but something tells me after the loss to Serbia we probably wont be, although a qualification play-off win might help achieve that.

    Agreed. It's pretty much f*cked up beyond all recognition...
