    Makes little sense to me. So, Slovenia and Spain faced the same competition and both dispatched them easily. Then duked it out and it was a 1-point game until the final seconds, with Spain ahead for 30 minutes of the game. Looks like they should be evenly ranked.

    Then, Argentina did nothing but maul a hapless foe. Didn't have a chance against Slovenia or Spain. And yet they are ranked ahead of Germany, a team which gave Australia and Italy all they could handle...

    These ranking are there for the click-bait. USA is still no.1, France imo no.2, with Spain, Slovenia, Australia from 3 to 5 in random order. While needless to say Germany and Italy might have a word there on court. The only country I am not counting on for some upset is Argentina though. Too short bench should make it increasingly difficult for them to pull an upset in a tournament like this.
