45 Bangladesh Bangladesh Bangladesh, on the northern coast of the Bay of Bengal, is surrounded by India, with a small common border with Myanmar in the southeast. The country is low-lying riverine land traversed by the many branches and tributaries of the Ganges and Brahmaputra rivers.

Play cricket best.there are many football grounds in this country but the players are not good,handball,volleyball,and others sports they plays.they have to be bring good coaches, players,facilities.then they can be genius in the all sports of world.but not bad also.

46 Israel Israel Israel, officially the State of Israel is a country in the Middle East, on the southeastern shore of the Mediterranean Sea and the northern shore of the Red Sea.

What sort of fact is that? Back it up please. Israel is a great country and recognised throughout the world accordingly. It is pretty poor at sport though, my theory is most of the potential sport stars are instead funnelled into the army to defend the state. I could be wrong though, but tell me which sport they are good at?

Me too I am supporting Israel too because its India's best friend

I think it should be number 11

Fact time: Do you know Israel is ranked second on the worst countries in the world?

I agree. Should be higher, loved Hagi, one of the best footballers in the world in his day. Good sporting nation I like Romania

Good at: Soccer, judo,weightlifting, fencing, canoeing,long distance running, marathons, and by far our most dominant sport is gymnastics! Considering the size of Romania I think we are very good at sports!

At the moment (23 August 2016), Romania is ranked 14th in the world, considering the total number of Olympic medals won at all the Summer Olimpic Games.
...Even though the participation at the Olympics this year (Brazil, 2016) was one of the weakest participation of Romania, in the last 40 years!
... And even though it only participated in 21 editions (of a total of 28)...
... And, if we consider that the Soviet Union included Russia, and East Germany is now part of Germany, we can say that Romania is ranked 12th.

Population: around 20 million

Think is not bad at all...

52 Ukraine Ukraine Ukraine is a sovereign country in Eastern Europe, bordered by Russia to the east and northeast, Belarus to the northwest, Poland and Slovakia to the west, Hungary, Romania, and Moldova to the southwest, and the Black Sea and Sea of Azov to the south and southeast, respectively.
