ELO Football Ranking - Interactive World Map
This series of interactive maps shows the ELO ranking and ELO rating for all countries in the world. The ELO ranking is an alternative to the official FIFA ranking for ranking men"s national football (soccer) teams in the world. As an unofficial ranking it is not as well-known compared to the FIFA world ranking. However, it is sometimes considered more accurate because it takes into account ALL international "A" matches, not just FIFA-recognized international matches, and also uses a slightly different calculation (e.g. taking into account goal difference). The ELO ranking system was originally invented as a chess rating system but is now used for many different sports.
