Argentina topped the FIFA Men’s World Ranking for the first time since 2017, as the world football’s governing body announced the latest standings on Thursday.

New leaders Argentina have 1,840.93 points, followed by the 2022 World Cup silver medalists France with 1,838.45 points.

Brazil are in the third spot with 1,834.21 points.

The next FIFA World Ranking will be published on July 20.
