USA allow victory over Spain to go to their Wiki heads
And this week’s biggest climber, up 13 places…
Tut, tut, tut. Internet football hooligans. Once decent win and they go around wrecking the joint! USA fans wasted no time in adjusting the Wikipedia page for the FIFA World Rankings to reflect their 2-0 Confederations Cup semi-final victory over Spain.
The US have miraculously jumped from 14th place to the top spot, while Spain – now playing under that well-known regional governing body FAIL – dropped down to fill the USA’s vacated place. Amusingly, this seems to have sparked Wiki discussions about whether someone believed they had been awarded three points for the win or whether someone had confused this with the article on the women’s rankings!
