The best jokes as Wales go above England in Fifa rankings

Nation stunned as Gareth Bale is implicitly revealed to be superior to Andros Townsend.

Dragon proud as Wales go above England in Fifa rankings

Come and have a look at the best jokes as Wales go above England in Fifa’s world rankings.

Much of this change can be attributed to Real Madrid’s Gareth Bale, who has scored or assisted 7 of the 8 goals that the Welsh have scored in getting themselves to the brink of qualifying for Euro 2016.

However this should not exonerate the English, who of course have the world class talents of Phil Jones and Andros Townsend to call upon.

For the record, both sides are below Romania in the rankings but above Spain.

So enjoy these Wales go above England jokes…
