I think I'm blind, I did not just see Sweden so low... does anybody here watch football or even know who Zlatan Ibrahimovic is?

Lots of skills and they've got a lot of tricks up their sleeves

I'm Portuguese, and honestly, Sweden doesn't deserve to be number 34

Sweden is great

43Philippines more.

I want to say some thing about philippics that why they are 56 because there it dog donkey snake stupid people's yeah vote up up I am Russian

I weep for Philippines. It feel so bad being at 59. - joshsanz

Best team in southeast Asia. YEAH

44IrelandFormed in 1916 after the Easter uprising, Ireland is a small country with a population of roughly 5 million.

Small country but still had legends and one of the most football loving nations in the world

This list is a joke- Ghana? Faroe Islands? China?

45GreeceGreece, officially the Hellenic Republic, also known since ancient times as Hellas is a country located in southeastern Europe.

Greece should be placed in top 15 or top 10. Greece has lots of growing talents and they won 2004 and have possibly the best defense in the whole world. Plus Greece should have pummeled the Ivory Coast 5-1 instead of 2-1 in World Cup in 2014.

People love football here. They believe it's a passion. Plus we have very good football teams, we like playing it, we get crazy while watching a match! Should ABSOLUTELY be in the top 10

Greece is in the top 20 best soccer countries

Why is Greece this low

Russia is better than any Mexicans but Brazil on the other hand is sick

I don't know one player from China,San Marino etc. Why is Russia being put underneath them?!

47DenmarkDenmark is a Scandinavian country in Europe. The southernmost of the Nordic countries, it is south-west of Sweden and south of Norway, and bordered to the south by Germany.

Defiantly... Recalling the glory days of the Danish Dynamite!
And the u21 team, really impressive, and will indeed go far in the UEFA U21 Championship :)
The senior team is great too, with rising talents like Christian Eriksen, and experienced players like Daniel Agger. Overall, the team will bring back their glorious past into the future. With Morten Olsen preparing to leave from manager position, its time for a better manager like Michael Laudrup to step in, and change things for the better.

Allan Simonsen, Jesper Olsen, Elkjaer Larsen, Michael Laudrup, Brian Laudrup. One of the best footballers factory ever.

People only don't go for them because they don't have a lot of people or money in their country. :-(

Haiti is in the top 15 if they weren't the poorest country in western hemisphere

50Ivory CoastIvory Coast or Côte d'Ivoire, officially named the Republic of Côte d'Ivoire, is a country located in West Africa.

Definitely one of the best African soccer teams out there with toure and many more legends they should be put higher on the list.

Ivory Coast is one of the best in Africa and almost beat Egypt in the African World Cup

Ivory coast is actually quite good, and should be at least top 35-40

This country is known as the football nation in africa

It is bounded on the south by 2,798 kilometers of coastline of Southern Africa stretching along the South Atlantic and Indian Oceans, on the north by the neighbouring countries of Namibia, Botswana more.

South africa have won the african cup of nations a few times and is coming for the fifa world cup.

South Africa has to be on top ten because in 2010 South Africa had beat tough team like France.

They are progressing to be better

My team sucks

World Cup runners-up 1938, 1954, European bronze, three time Olympic champs

One of the old powerhouses of football, not so much these days.

One of the under dogs for the euro 2016 should definitely be higher on the list!

I'm from Hungary and I love soccer so much

Scotland aren't the best but they are the best to me

59Czech RepublicThe Czech Republic, also known as Czechia, is a nation state in Central Europe bordered by Germany to the west, Austria to the south, Slovakia to the east and Poland to the northeast.

I am okay with being pretty low on this list but seriously, how can we be like 30 places below San Marino which is a true football dwarf? (no offense there)

Petr Cech should really be able to single handedly bring Czech Republic at top 40-50 on this list

Czech Republic have best goalie keeper of world name Petr Cech. In national teams me worst defense and attack. Czech Republic have great history, Czechia have in old year silver medail of Euro, in finaly lost fight of the Germany. Good play to oldest Czechoslovakia team.
