Continental NT Evaluation

*Update for 2017 African Cup of Nations

The National Football Team evaluation scorecard is provided based on the systematic implementation in the extent of time period as following ; Europe since 1920, Americas since 1916, Africa since 1934 and Asia & Oceania since 1938. The performance includes only qualifying matches and final tournaments. Exceptionally, the zonal competition is permitted in case it was existed before continental final tournament had been created.

The performance score is calculated by the sum of SPR value (S X P X R)

S = Standard of Competition : It is determined based on average of benchmarking performance
P : Performance : It is primarily rated based on result of competition
R : Round : The finished round (For qualification match is given full five point)

Ptcp means the participation time based on actual model combined with assumed model. The assumed model is the expansion of participated teams in major final tournament to set a similar number of participants based on standard of team level at each era. It also include only the participation with qualified performance (at least 0.25) 

Expansion Coefficient : For Deficit Participation amount due to Era factor. As some of continental competition was started later than the others, it is considered that the pre-four continental competition era is less competitive. The proportional expansion to compensate the deficit amount is required in comparison table. The expansion scale is calculated from deficit amount of participation in comparison to European and South American standard as following formula : Standard Amount/Available Amount

The judging parameter is used in case the scores between the comparative couple is different within 1 %

1. The Same System of Competition

Primary : FIFA Confederation Cup, Secondary : Zonal Competition, Third : World Cup

2. The Different System of Competition

*WC : In case the two teams have a score of World Cup and one of World Cup scores is twice times more than the less total score, that team is automatically rated higher. In case one of them has zero in World Cup score, it will be judge by comparison between difference of World Cup score and Total score

The case of union-independent nations : The former USSR, Yugoslavia and Czechoslovakia performance is combined with the best performance of independent nation within the former union group. However, every model of union-independent nation (Yugoslavia-Croatia, USSR-Russia, etc) is also available in the continental list in MOV series. 

* Remark : Each continent has different participation model. Accordingly, the intercontinental comparison cannot be conducted directly. For the indirect method, please find in NT & Club Evaluation result in WFHC.

  1. Hi, Dearman! Great list, man, all of them.
    Just a slight correction: on the Americas' list, Paraguay was placed below Chile although they have a better rank.
