Football: Romanian national team hits all time low

Romania’s football team fell two slots to 52nd in the nations’ standings of the International Football Association Board (FIFA), in November, the lowest ranking ever, one spot behind Bosnia and Herzegovina, their opponent in the EURO 2012 qualifiers. With but one victory under their belt so far this year, in a friendly match against Honduras, the three-coloured are out of the Top 50 teams, behind Gabon, Burkina Faso, Northern Ireland or Guinea. Russia was out of the Top 10 chart, its place taken by Egypt. South Africa recorded the steepest ascension in the standings, up 17 positions. Spain, The Netherlands and Brazil, in that particular order, are the top three rankers.
