FIFA updates its national team rankings periodically to show the highest rated national team in the world with a score. The previous classification was highly conditioned by the Eurocup and the America’s Cup, since the two finalists in each tournament rose a lot. In the next classification, which we have had access to thanks to Mr. Chip, there are some variations but without many surprises. The clearest is the first place of Belgium in the ranking, something that already happened in the previous classification, but that still collides, especially after the setback in the Nations League.
In the TOP 15, there is only one team that does not belong to Europe or Latin America, this is the United States team, which has a very exciting generation with young people who are already standing out in great European teams. But let’s see the list to continue commenting on it.
Most of the changes are from one position, but the fall of England, which goes from third to fifth, and Uruguay, which falls from 12th to 15th place, stand out to a large extent. The fall of England is surprising and only may explain why he did not participate in the Nations League finals. For its part, Uruguay, has continued to reap some poor results in the qualifying matches for the World Cup, which is why it remains at the bottom of the TOP 15.
Spain rises one position with respect to the previous ranking due to its good performance in the Nations League, but it would still be behind Argentina, who after winning the Copa América continue to win matches in the World Cup qualifiers.
We must praise teams like Switzerland or Denmark that despite having more limited squads, sneak into the ranking ahead of great teams that would even be outside the TOP 15 such as Colombia, Croatia, Chile, Sweden or Russia.
