Qatar Just Climbed 21 Spots In The Latest FIFA Rankings


Qatar, boasting two Asian Cup triumphs, has now ascended to the 37th spot in the FIFA rankings, securing an impressive 92.04 points. This achievement follows their successful defense of the continental crown, a feat they accomplished on their own turf.

This surge marks Qatar’s foray into uncharted territory, alongside two other teams achieving their highest-ever rankings.

Senegal, now positioned 17th after a notable climb of three spots, endured a heartbreaking defeat in a shootout against eventual Africa Cup of Nations champions Cote d’Ivoire in the round of 16. Meanwhile, Tajikistan, soaring to 99th place with a seven-spot jump, celebrated their inaugural Asian Cup campaign by breaking into the top 100 for the first time.

The rankings shake-up isn’t confined to one continent; six teams from Africa and Asia have made significant leaps, with Côte d’Ivoire and Qatar leading the charge.

Equatorial Guinea surged nine places to 79th, while South Africa climbed eight spots to 58th. Cabo Verde and Namibia both made strides of eight places, reaching 65th and 107th, respectively. Mali also saw a notable increase, rising four spots to 47th.

Excitement brews as the anticipation builds for the next edition of the FIFA Men’s World Ranking, slated for release on April 4th.
