FYROM’s national football team has seen a drop in the FIFA ranking. According to the new ranking, the country is on the 141st position, dropping 3 positions.

According to this ranking, FYROM ranks alongside African countries. This constant drop was affected after the defeat of the two last fixtures with Slovenia 1:0 and Bulgaria 2:0, which were both friendlies.

The national side’s ranking will also be affected by the 2018 World Cup qualifiers, where FYROM is in the same group as Spain, Italy, Albania, Israel and Liechtenstein. /ibna/
