FIFA Rankings

Ok, so riddle me this: How is it that Uruguay is ranked behind England in FIFA's latest rankings? I don't expect the results of the World Cup to mean everything, but they should be the single most meaningful metric. Uruguay made the semi-finals in South Africa. England was eliminated in the first game of the knockout stage.

Spain and the Netherlands are, naturally, 1 and 2. The United States sits at 18. Ghana is the highest ranked African team at 20. South Africa has climbed 7 spots to #58. Papua New Guinea comes in last, at #203.
