Socceroos slide again in latest FIFA world ranking

-

The Socceroos have moved in the latest FIFA world rankings after they were released today by the world’s governing body.

Having not played a match since November when the national team drew 2-2 with Thailand (#127), it is not much of a surprise to see the Socceroos drop one place to 55 in the world.

Ange Postecoglou’s squad will get a chance to reverse the drop/justify their move up as continue their push for World Cup qualification with matches against Iraq (#122) and UAE (#68) on the 24th and 28th of March respectively.

Elsewhere, South American heavyweights Argentina and Brazil remain in first and second respectively, while reigning FIFA World Cup™ champions Germany stay third.

The top 20 are unchanged from February except for two notable exceptions. Poland (12, plus 2) reached their best ever world ranking, joining Wales in joint 12th position for March.

Egypt meanwhile (20, plus 3), broke into the top 20 while Iceland (23, minus 3) fell  thanks largely to a 1-0 defeat in a friendly against Mexico played on 8 February. An honourable mention goes to Burkina Faso (36, plus 2) who, like Poland, reached their best ever position in the Ranking.
