FIFA World Rankings logoFIFA World Rankings logoMacedonia climbed 32 places to be placed 103rd on the newest FIFA World ranking. The climbing is thanks to the win and draw in the two World Cup qualifying games.

Macedonian national team played two matches in September: a 1:0 win on the road against israel and a 1:1 draw at home against Albania, both in the qualifications for the 2018 World Cup in Russia. These good results brought a much better placement for Macedonia on the ranking list. Macedonia is also among the best movers behind Luxembourg who moved up 35 places and Cape Verde who climbed 47.

October games may put Macedonia inside the top 100. Italy away and Liechtenstein at home are the two qualifiers where we hope we can get decent results and eventually get back in the first 100.
