England dropped seven places in the rankings over the year, but did not fare as badly as they might have.  FIFA places a higher value on competitive matches than on friendly games.  England did not play a single competitive match in 1994 because they failed to qualify for the 1994 World Cup final tournament and qualified automatically for the 1996 European Championship final tournament as host nation.  And they played only six friendly matches during 1994 under new manager Terry Venables.  But they limited their slide in the rankings by remaining unbeaten through the year, playing all six matches at Wembley, winning four and drawing two.
