Top 10 Worst Football (Soccer) National TeamsWe always hear about the best in the world, but rarely about those sides that feature towards the lower end of the FIFA rankings. However the rankings aren’t always correct with how good a team actually is, and is calculated with points on which teams you play, the competition and the result. An example is Switzerland, who sit in 8th place in the rankings, whilst France are in 20th. Although most other countries are happy to see France so far down the list, it is a clear misguided table on how good each nation actually is. Looking at the wrong end of the scale, mostly not in the FIFA rankings at all, here is a list of the 10 worst national sides.
The Top Ten
How can you expect a country no bigger than a peanut to be any good at football
As of June 2012, Kiribati has lost all ten of their games. They lost twice against Papua New Guinea, three times against Fiji, once against Tuvalu, once against Solomon Islands, once against Vanuatu, once against Cook Islands and once against Tahiti. - SamHalls2015
I did not know this country existed
This country shouldn't even have a team or play because ITS ONE OF THE SMALLEST COUNTRYS IN THE WORLD. I still don't believe that COOK ISLANDS has a team since its literally A PROVENCE.(NOT A COUNTRY)
So weak that CR7 and LM11 can score 1000000 in thirty minutes against them
What?! Does Palau play soccer
Palau rice am I right - crazycat9999
Don't even know who he is but he probably sucks so much that Dempsey could score 1,000,000,000 goals in one day against Palau and his goaly!
They should be number 1 they lost To Australia 31-0 and that's a world record - CoolCat999
31-0 to Australia? That's unimaginable. How can a Island with so many wars and tiny tiny territory can even win a team? It isn't fair for this team to play soccer.
Got absolutely wrecked to Australia and are a joke, don't even know hoe to play!
Eastern Samoa are so cool they once gave 1 million dollars to Poland for nothing just for fun
If you look at the FIFA World Ranking on the Official FIFA app, they're at the very bottom, with 0 POINTS!
The only nation to lose against India, yes India!
Of course bhutan has lossed much game but remember they are improving. And when they improve, they win by heart not by skill so hats off to bhutan and the dragon people
Rubbish. How are they even allowed to play
Your all just wishing that your team has good players plus how is England bad when they got to the semi finals of the World Cup 2018
In terms of expectation vs. reality, England is quite easily the worst of the bunch. In every major tournament, they come in with lofty expectations of making the semi-finals, but more often than not, they crash and burn to a team with passion. The England team hasn't put in a decent performance at a major competition since the 1996 Euros, and really shouldn't be expected to considering how little the team seems to care about their nation. In addition, the fans are delusional, as well as, although it has improved, a track record of hooliganism. It also appears as though all England fans love to bash the US, when, in reality, we have consistently outperformed them when it matters most.
They suck because they don't know Interpolation method like India
England is gonna get crushed every World Cup
They focus on basket ball not soccer
It's because kim jung un distracts the president with his money
Why don't they play scott singleton he would improve their central midfield - crazycat9999
That's why they are the worst football team because Donald trump is ugly and old!
There just a stupid team playing like there going mad
You guys are way too funny. I had not laughed this much in a very long time.
This is rubbish than england
Who even plays for the Vatican. The Vatican only has 800 residents and nearly all of them have a job related to religion like a cardinal or a bishop and even a pope.
They are not even a member of FIFA!
How can they even create a soccer team when they have like 1k people living in there?
They're not a team
With the smallest population on the list, just 5,774 inhabitants, it was always going to be difficult for this little self-governing French territory. They have played just 7 games as a nation and all since 2010 in the French Territory Cup. Their results are impressive though. They have scored just 2, whilst allowing their opponents 78 goals. An average of 10.1 conceded per game. Jose Mourinho would have a tough time with this nation. Their smallest loss to date is a 7-0 to French Guiana, whilst their largest a 16-1 defeat to New Caledonia. Still, least they scored. With the islands 3 airports, at least they can escape the brutality of their defeats once they are over.
They never won!
Whoever put this here is either mad or is a Chilean or Brazilian
What the heck is the person thinking putting Argentina here. Just because they lost the world cup doesn't mean they suck! And they have Messi.
I know, but they are here because they are BULLIES. They bullied Chile, Brazil, and Uruguay. - Gabo147
Yeah your exactly right Argentina are a gun team, almost beating Germany in the World Cup and who doesn't know Messi best soccer player in the world and plays for the Argentinian soccer national team!
How? it hurts me (I'm english by the way) they have messi and had maradona (never forgive him for what he did) and greats like di Stefano and crespo still though hate maradona
With a population of 15,000 people, Anguilla should be proud of being above 6 other countries. They have won 3 times in their 48 outings as a national side. Their last win was as recent as 2010, in a Caribbean Cup fixture against Saint Martin 2-1. They have had a few big loses, with their biggest being a 14-0 loss back in 1998 to Guyana. For an island that is 16 miles long, and just 3 miles wide, their stats are far more impressive than they appear.
Fun Fact: San Marino has only 1 win (1-0 Liechtenstein in 2004), 4 draws (Turkey 1993, Latvia 2001, Liechtenstein 2003, and Estonia 2014) and lost many other games.
Lowest FIFA rating out of the 209 countries in FIFA. That is VERY impressive!
They're terrible they don't have even 5 games won
The tied Estonia and only scored after 30 seconds like Dempsey against Dempsey
No because billy Forbes plays for them
Turks and the Caicos have been described as the worst team in the world on more than one occasion. They sit joint bottom of the FIFA Rankings with two other sides on this list with 0 points. This island paradise in the Bahamas chain hasn’t played a game since 2011, but that hasn’t stopped for teacher from England Matthew Green attempting to get them off the bottom. Their last win was in 2008 against St. Lucia. They have only played 14 games, whilst winning 2 have scored 8 and conceded 51. As an island, they are more interested in Cricket, but we’re more interested in their capital, Cockburn Town (How childish).
They suck! I AFC challenges cup or maybe something else their smallest loss was against Bangladesh it was 4-0 and biggest loss was against Palestine 9-0 and they lost with Nepal by 6-0 in that same competition.
They have terrorists which will kill the ref for bribes, that makes me worried putting them on this list
People who act like this are a disgrace and should not be banned because they are incapable of showing sportsmanship.
It's 205th above many
Yeah they were once charged for farting in the Samoans kings face and then made an excuse saying it is a sign of honour towards the caca king of the south
Tonga is another small nation in the OFC that will probably never qualify for the World Cup. With a population of around 100k the island nation doesn't have a huge population to choose from. Tonga once lost to Australia 22-0. AKA they suck
They are currently tied for the worst national team in the FIFA rankings.
They are ranked last, I'm surprised that they have a team.
You are so dumb they are good
South Korea isn't bad I think there a pretty good team
South Korea is the team that tries to cheat, and gets pissed whenever they get caught.
They're 50th in FIFA best teams they're not bad
South Korea is good they beat Fiji
Ireland is actually an alright team they're ranked 27 in the FIFA world rankings
Ireland should not be on this list. They don't often get to semi finals but there good
Ireland isn't bad they even have the soccer club celtic which is a pro team
You idiot Ireland is actually pretty good!
Not even a country...
I don't think they have a football team
What is this Country?
You don't even know this
They have never won any title in last 5 years
FIFA gave a penalty. They can't play anymore
FIFA gave them a red card
Hahaaahahaaha ha ha ha
The u-23 sucks losing 46-0 and 38-0 in just two games worst team ever hardly winning a match
Um I forgot what I need to say
The best team ever
They are tiny 'micro'nesia
Not as bad as some other nations, but included because of their large goals conceded per game ratio. Letting in an average of 5.31 goals per game, their keeper spends more time in his own net picking out the ball than out of it altogether. Having only played 35 times, the last a 6-1 defeat to Curacao in 2011. With a population of 106,000, this small nation might not be qualifying for a major tournament anytime soon.
They have a good player called Bryan Melendez.
India is a champ stop saying that our country sucks,1 day. India will win every fifa world cup
I agree with you guys India sucks I highly doubt that they will ever win a cup they are the worst team ever
India has defeated Australia 5 - 0 australia should come here in this place
Here is the thing. Australia made it into at least one world cup. How many world cups have India competed in? - AnLSUQB
What India are so good they are rated 1 star on FIFA 15 and have won the World Cup 3 times also Ronald's plays for them and he is born in kolkata
Iran is not a perfect team but not worst team in world - Rhapsody
They are the worst if don't know how they made it to the World Cup
Iran is by far in my opinion the best team in asia. Don't believe me? Search it up
I think this opinion is good
There a island that knows nothing about football
They play football?
Bad forwards, bad midfields, bad goalkeeper and bad back people
They have a team?
Once Iran defeated them with 20 goal - Rhapsody
They lost to North Korea
They just stand there
They beated India
Bruh mexico is always is going to beat us they won the gold cup
Mexico is trash, they say they are so good now since they beat Germany. Well its not like that. Mexico lost against Jamaica! they also lost against the us
Mexico is the best team because they won germany and beat usa a lot of times.
Who ever put Mexico on this list is a Trump supporter. They made Germany to start losing most of its games after the World Cup.
Really are you kidding with population 90 % albanian he is a Albanian province so keep dreaming bye bye
Not even an official soccer team!
Why would a Serbian province be a national team?
More like Albanian province. Serbia lost the war, just like Serbia lost all wars, you worthless trash. - 32537690968969
As Monaco Has Radmel Facol
I live in Canada! ;( And none of the teams are bad! It's just they don't win every year are you SMART!
Ok, Canada was boss in 1986, but so far, I will never forget them making the world cup in 1986 - SuperBacca
I only think that Canada should be the worst because they do not make it a lot to the World Cups but I think once they did.
Canada only plays hockey that's why there not that good
Yeah also back in 2005 the Portugal national team were charged with stealing money from Japan to not be poor also they were so stupid to have told Spain what they did and how there better than Spain
I just had to vote for Portugal, because they have the two worst soccer player of all time, Ronaldo and Pepe. I have nothing against the rest of the team, but Portugal gets my vote.
True Ronaldo will go to prison for 2 years being a the world meanest show off and being mean Ronaldo get out of football fighting is his sport
Ronaldo is just a big show off showing is bad skill saying he is good at goalkeeper in FIFA 15
Liars they are not bad, They are at least better than average
Won 2-1 to honduras
No that bad
7-0 Against Cuba
They may have got flattened but they produce good players
This is the worst list ever
Only reason I voted is because of Diego Costa
They're like #3 on FIFA ratings right now
Stop with all the lotion, you guys need to age
They are actually getting better players
They produce bad players
They are getting better - PopGeorge1678
They are alright I like them
I'm sorry, they are trying.
Australia is just too gritty and disorganised
Trent Sainsbury is crap
Their biggest win was 1-0 against Malta in 1994.
What the hell Italy are the best
Take Italy Germany and Argentina out and this would be a good list
Come on, 4 world cups, 2 euros not enough?.
Jeez just because you hate Italy doesn't mean that they are bad at playing football
I am from Denmark by the way - Skrimby
They were 2nd in the World Cup. Croatia is more like the best. - 32537690968969
But they beated spain and turkey
Fake info! Germany won the world cup they are the best team in the world!?!?!?
Well they got knocked out in the group stage by South Korea, and lost against Mexico.
They have lately been awful, though.
This is a lie Germany won the world cup whoever that put this here is stupid
There all right
In such a big country they can't find 11 decent players..
What? They tied with Spain, so how are they a bad team?
They tied with Spain, a powerhouse. They are great.
They simply don't know how to play
These people are horrible I don't know why they even play
They should piss off
My god wathing these guys play makes me wanna cry
Worst team ever if they were against Jamaica they would easily lose and Jamaica are horrible
Malta sucks at everything
