    World Team of the Year - Winners

    
    Award won by the National Team ranked first in the last FIFA Ranking of each
    year.
    Until 1999 the team ranked on 1st place on FIFA Ranking at December was the 
    winner.  Since 2000 the Team of the Year Award goes for the national team which
    has the highest average points score in their seven best matches of the year. 
    The team ranked first at the end of the year is the Top Ranked Team.
    
    For consistency purposes, we continue considering the team ranked first at 
    the end of the year for this archive, in addition to the new Team of the 
    Year.
