Ah, the FIFA World Rankings. The best way to decide the best team in the world - apart from, you know, an international tournament like the World Cup.

How are England always so high, even during such perennial disappointments? What does any of it mean?

No matter - it's been 27 years since FIFA first brought in the one table to rule them all. Can you remember every team to hold the top three spots?
