Let us recall that in July this year, Russia was ranked 38th, behind the Czech Republic and ahead of Nigeria. In September, Valery Karpin’s team fell to 39th place. The top three have not changed in recent months, although Croatia has fallen from sixth to tenth place in the rankings. The Spanish national team rose from 10th to eighth place.
