FIFA Men’s World Rankings: Egypt and Tunisia Climb as Top Ten Hold Firm

With just 22 matches, all friendlies played since the December edition, it is no surprise to see few significant changes in the first FIFA/Coca-Cola World Ranking of 2018.

Confederations Cup winners Germany remain first with Brazil second and Portugal third. Argentina, who struggled to qualify for World Cup 2018 is in fourth. There is no change in the top 14 teams.

The Pharaohs, who are also out of action since their qualification to the World Cup in November, have maintained their overall rankings. Egypt remained third among African countries, behind Senegal (23rd) and Tunisia ─ who jumped up four places to become 27th, topping Arab nations ahead of Egypt.

It has been announced that Egypt, who are paired with Saudi Arabia, hosts Russia and fearsome Uruguay in Group A, will play friendlies against Portugal and Bulgaria in March in preparation for the 2018 World Cup.
