The new FIFA World Rankings came out today and I am so chuffed. Because England are at number 4? Noooo!
Look who’s jumped up to become the 16th best nation in the world at football…..
…it’s Montenegro! 🙂
They really deserve this they are still on the same points as England in the qualifying for Euro 2012 yet have such a tiny population. A great achievement.
Elsewhere Montenegro’s women’s basketball team are the only unbeaten team going into the Quarter Finals of the European Championships tonight. The winners get automatic qualification for the Olympics so I’m pretty excited about that too.
In 2006 Montenegro seceded from Serbia & Montenegro and I’m delighted that they have the character and talent to go beyond their potential and succeed on the world stage.
