41GhanaGhana, officially called the Republic of Ghana, is a sovereign unitary presidential constitutional democracy, located along the Gulf of Guinea and Atlantic Ocean, in the subregion of West Africa.

Ghana is four time Africa champion and for past eight years has been shaking world by wining against some countries USA, Brazil, England, Nigeria and rest. In fact, Ghana is the only Africa country that stand a chance to win the World cup before any country in Africa. No wonder soccer is major sports in Africa, especially Ghana. Go Ghana Go.

They have very talented players. They have also won the most youth competitions and are by far the best in Africa. Great performance in world cup, they will make it far next summer. Should be in top 15 at least.

Ghana always make Africa proud in every competition they participate

Ghana should be top 25 or 30 at least, they almost never disappoint in the world cup

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

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?

Best team in the world beat italy 2 times in a roy

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

We got the 2004 Euro because were wogs

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

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

49Cambodia
50IcelandIceland, also called the Republic of Iceland, is a Nordic island country between the North Atlantic and the Arctic Ocean. It is known as the most peaceful country on earth.

How come Iceland is so low!? They're still in UEFA 2016 and beating auschwitz and england!

51Ivory 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

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

South Africa is the best

56Hungary

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

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.

Bangladesh is the best we are strong and we are better than Brazil Argentina and Germany.

The best after Brazil and better than Spain!
