Israel made up the most ground in the top 100, rising eight places to 84th in part as a result of their 4-2 qualifying win against Austria, who drop 11 to 34th.

The football team from the Jewish state had fallen to 92nd place in the world before a series of strong results in European qualifiers.

They beat Austria and drew against Slovenia this year, as part of the European Championship Qualifiers, and in 2018 they had a string of good results, beating Scotland 2-1, Albania 2-0 and Guatemala 7-0.

Israel are fourth in the table for their European Championship Qualifying campaign, in which they’ve won four games and lost six matches.

England climbed one place to fourth in FIFA’s latest world rankings after their crushing Euro 2020 qualifying victories over the Czech Republic and Montenegro.
