A bit silly. In fact, completely stupid. FIFA rankings are for matches played by full national teams, whilst Olympic matches are for U-23 teams with 3 overage players. The results by Olympic teams and national teams are completely different. FIFA rankings should only be used for competitions involving full national teams, or maybe not even used at all.
