It is a complex formula to calculate FIFA's rankings. The overall score is based on factors such as the importance of each match played, the strength of the opposition and their confederation.

In 2013, for the sixth year in a row, Spain was awarded the team of the year. Brazil holds the record of seven consecutive wins between 1994 and 2000.
