In November 2014 the little British territory that is home to just over 5,000 people – compared to the 7,517 who went to Pune FC’s first home match – finds itself above India in the latest world football rankings. In the news item it said, “The island of Montserrat is so small that more people turned up for the Indian Super League’s least-attended football match so far than live on it.

Yet, India, with a population of 1.2 billion, is now at its lowest ever ranking of 170. The rankings were released on November 27 by the Fédération Internationale de Football Association (FIFA).

Tiny Montserrat was two ranks above at 168. Neither of these teams have played much football in 2014, but India’s loss to Palestine and its inability to beat Bangladesh has hurt it.

But in July this year Montserrat finds itself being the strongest of football teams with every other team over it, at the bottom of the ladder. They sit there both in the regional Caribbean Football Union (CFU) and FIFA rankins.

It shows neighbouring Antigua at Number 3 and 83 respectively (CFU and FIFA) with St. Kitts and Nevis at 10 and 117; and Anguilla at 24 and (197). Montserrat, 25 and (204).
