FIFA rankings: no change despite Armenian knockdown

Macedonia did not move nor up nor down, even stayed on the same amount of points in the newest ranking list of FIFA.

It was expected for Macedonia to lose points and maybe slip a place or two because of the heavy defeat away in Armenia in the Nations League. But the 4:0 humiliation did not make impact on the October rankings probably because of the big win over Liechtenstein and the other good results in the past 12 months.

Armenia also did not gain much for that big win mostly because three days earlier they were shocked at home by Gibraltar. The later moved up 8 places thanks to the back to back wins over Armenia and Liechtenstein.
