FIFA World Rankings: Macedonia moves up one place

FIFAWithout any activity in the prior month, Macedonia moved up one spot in the newest FIFA World Rankings.

The Macedonian national team still remains below #100 as it now shares the 102nd place with Bahrain.  Macedonia didn’t gain or lose points since the previous rankings were unveiled in July and moved up one place thanks to other national teams who happened to drop points.  Regardless, Macedonia remains one of the worst ranked national teams in Europe.

At the top of the FIFA rankings, England moved up to third place to celebrate its best ranking in history, while Brazil sank further and now finds itself in 13th place.
