Federation Internationale de Football Association notes that the new Elo method has been used in other sports for a number of years and is even involved in calculating the women's world rankings, with a specific version (SUM) developed especially to take into account FIFA's considerations. "And that is the reason why even though Spain and Germany don't have individual stars, together as a team they can defeat anyone", said Amalraj, who was the first player to captain East Bengal, Mohun Bagan and Mohammedan Sporting.
