In the men’s soccer world rankings announced by FIFA on the 6th, Korea ranked 27th with 1536.01 points. It fell two notches from 25th place (메이저사이트1539.49 points) in December last year, when it advanced to the round of 16 at the Qatar World Cup.
Korea ranked third among Asian Football Confederation (AFC) member countries, following Japan (1588.59 points) in 20th place and Iran (1553.23 points) in 24th place.
Qatar World Cup winner Argentina (1840.93 points) occupied the first place in the world rankings. Argentina, which ranked second after Brazil (1838.38 points) in the rankings in December last year, jumped to first place last month by winning two consecutive victories against Panama (2-0) and Curacao (7-0) in friendly matches. It is the first time in six years since March 2017 that Argentina ranked first.
