Azerbaijan improves position in FIFA ranking

Azerbaijan’ national football team has managed to reach its highest-ever 73rd position at the FIFA/Coca-Cola World Ranking.

Germany leads the table for the first time in around 20 years, followed by Argentina and the Netherlands. The Oranje’s third-place finish at the World Cup has propelled them 12 positions up the table and back into the top ten.

All of the teams that exited the World Cup in the quarter-finals have climbed up the ranking: Colombia (fourth, up four), Belgium (fifth, up six), France (tenth, up seven) and Costa Rica (16th, up 12 – the Ticos’ highest-ever ranking).
