The FIFA World Rankings are based on the results of the FIFA Ranking System (FRSS), which is used to predict the placement of the world’s best teams in FIFA’s global rankings.
The system, which is not affected by the World cup, was introduced in 2019, but its inclusion in the rankings was delayed due to a lack of competition in the 2018 tournaments.
FIFA announced in November 2018 that the rankings were to be moved to the World Rankings website in 2019 to ensure a greater level of competition.
