FIFA rankings: No change for Macedonia

Macedonia did not jump or moved down on the newest FIFA rankings so the Lynx stay 68th.

Our national team played two matches the past period, both European qualifiers. First we lost 2:1 on the road at Austria, while three days later we defeated Israel 1:0 at home  in what was the last qualifier. These results brought us only 3 points more than the October rankings which resulted in no change regarding out spot.
