Zurich, Switzerland

Saturday, June 15, 2019

Several of the biggest names in international football have made significant gains in the latest edition of the FIFA World Ranking.

While Belgium (1st, unchanged) continue their reign at the top, increasing their advantage over France (2nd, unchanged) following UEFA EURO qualifying wins over Kazakhstan and Scotland, there is plenty of movement elsewhere in the top 20. Portugal (5th, up 2), for example, have moved into the top five on the back of their UEFA Nations League triumph, while the Netherlands (14th, up 2) have edged upwards after reaching the final of the same competition.

A trio of former world champions are also on the rise. Spain (7th, up 2), Germany (11th, up 2) and Italy (14th, up 3) have all ascended the global ladder on the back of positive results in the EURO qualifiers.

There are plenty of success stories elsewhere, too, with the likes of Austria (26th, up 8), Northern Ireland (28th, up 5), Czech Republic (41st, up 7), Hungary (42nd, up 9), Armenia (97th, up 9) and Malaysia (159th, up 9) racing up the ranking. There is also reason to celebrate for Senegal (22nd, up 1) and Kosovo (121st, up 6), both of whom are currently in their highest position to date.
