Top 10 Worst Football (Soccer) National Teams

We 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.

I did not know this country existed

For who doesn't known Kiribati is just bunch of really small islands located at pacific ocean

Eastern Samoa (American Samoa)

They did lose 31-0 agenst australia. But at least they are better than the country samoa.

They should be number 1 they lost To Australia 31-0 and that's a world record

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!


What?! Does Palau play soccer

Palau rice am I right

Only 2000 people live there and they have a natioal team!

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!

United States

They focus on basket ball not soccer

That's why they are the worst football team because Donald trump is ugly and old!

They reached farther than group stages in recent years... They aren't worst than England anyway...

LeBron James should play for them


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.

England is gonna get crushed every World Cup

No, they shouldn't be here, they actually won something and that's the 1966 world cup.

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


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

Vatican City

They played against Monaco on more than one occasion I think

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?


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.

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!

They think they are better then every other national team because they have Messi, and half the time messi is only good when there are other good players with him..

Northern Mariana Islands

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.

Pohnpei State's National Team

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.

Pohnpei what?

This is rubbish than england

The Contenders

South Korea

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


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


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!

Saint Pierre and Miquelon

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!

Where the flip is that

what ( where is that )


Not even a country...

I don't think they have a football team

it is a country in asia

You don't even know this

San Marino

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


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


I think this opinion is good

best team


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


There a island that knows nothing about football

They play football?

Bad forwards, bad midfields, bad goalkeeper and bad back people

they do not have a national team


Iran is not a perfect team but not worst team in world

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


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.

Ranked 210th in FIFA ranking

worse in fifa ranking


They have a team?


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
