Thanks to the recent successes over Northern Ireland, Bulgaria, and Lithuania in the opening three matches in the qualifying campaign for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, Roberto Mancini’s Italy have climbed up three spots into seventh place in the latest FIFA Rankings. Thus, the Azzurri continue their climb towards the top of the world rankings, on the back of an unbeaten run of 25 consecutive matches (20 wins and five draws) which dates back as far as two and a half years (the last defeat came in September 2018 in Portugal).
Belgium continue to lead the Rankings, ahead of France and Brazil, who are then followed by England, Portugal, and Spain. Italy climb above Argentina, Uruguay, and Mexico as they move into seventh place with 1,642 points. Denmark also managed to climb two places, overtaking Mexico to round out the top ten.
