Wales Have been ranked higher than England in the Fifa world rankings following a spectacular Euros performance.
Wales have moved up the table a grand total of fifteen places since they made it all the way to the semi Final in the Euro 2016 championships.
The dragons are now considered to be greater than England who are still without a manager following their poor performance in the Championships. Shockingly England lost to Iceland after making it through to the final sixteen.
Northern Ireland have fallen down two places event though they played well in the recent tournament that dominated our television screens. They are now placed at number twenty eight on the table. Scotland are way behind in the number 50 spot after they failed to even qualify for the tournament.
The Republic of Ireland moved up to find themselves in at Thirty one; they sit just behind their more dominant neighbours.
This last Campaign will go down in history for Wales as they managed to achieve their greatest results on an international level. They have been higher on the table however; in 2015 they were sat at number eight, as they made progress through qualifying stages for the 2016 contest.
It will come as no surprise that Iceland have managed to establish themselves their highest position ever, after shocking the whole of Europe by making it to the quarter finals. They are now placed at number twenty two in the rankings.
The top five teams remain the same, Argentina is in first place in front of Belgium then Columbia, Germany and Chile. Winners of the Euro 2016 Championship, Portugal and their final opponents, France moved up two and 10 places they now sit at sixth and seventh. Spain, Brazil and Italy complete the top 10.
The changes are phenomenal following the European results. It is a pattern that has followed on from last year’s premiership season when we witnessed Leicester City top the premiership table. Things are definitely changing in football. After a whole host of shocking results this year, the 2016/17 Premiership season is set to be one of the most exciting yet.
