FIFA rankings: Macedonia stays 65th

The two wins followed by a defeat weren’t enough for Macedonia to move any places despite gaining some points.

Beating Georgia 1:0 away in the 2020 EURO play-off and Estonia 2:1 at home in the Nations League brought Macedonia only 6 points on the newest FIFA raking lists, enough only to stay at the 65th place. The 1:0 defeat by Armenia on the road probably did the damage.
