Fifa ranking: The Blues lose big

The poor results recorded by France in the four matches played at the end of the season will come at a high price in the FIFA rankings.

Two draws and two defeats: the international sequence of this month of June turned into a fiasco for the Blues. After an inaugural defeat against Denmark (1-2) then two draws in Croatia (1-1) and Austria (1-1), France ended their season with another setback at the Stade de France, this time against Croatia (0-1). After only four matches in this third edition of the League of Nations, the men of Didier Deschamps, holders of the title, are eliminated from the race for the Final Four.

Doubled by Argentina

But this series of bad results has another consequence for the Blues: France will no longer be on the podium in the FIFA rankings when it is next published. While it was 24.72 points ahead of Argentina last month, the world champions will lose their third place in favor of the band to Lionel Messi. While the Argentinians won their two matches on the program, and thus scored 5.52 points, France lost 25 points. In the end, the Blues will therefore be 5.8 points behind Argentina.

England got closer

And France’s fourth place is also under threat. England did not shine, however, losing to Hungary before stringing together two draws against Germany and Italy. It has nevertheless moved closer to France since it now only has 16 disbursement points. And the gap could be even smaller if the English win against Hungary on Tuesday.

Denmark in the Top 10

At the top of the standings, Brazil, who won against Japan and South Korea, consolidated their first place, the Seleçao now having a 20-point lead over Belgium, who currently have a victory. against Poland for a defeat against the Netherlands and a draw against Wales. Finally, note that Denmark, with three wins for one defeat, moved into the Top 10 to the detriment of Mexico.
