Michele Marcolini’s selection climbs into the 171st position
Despite not featuring during the month of July, the Malta men’s national team has moved up one place in the FIFA rankings.
Michele Marcolini’s team climbed into the 171st place at the expense of Cuba whose negative points record of -16.55 registered in July saw them slide just behind Malta.
The Concacaf side lost all three group games in their continental Gold Cup showdown – against Guatemala, Guadeloupe and Canada earlier this month.
Gibraltar (198), Liechtenstein (200) and San Marino (208) remain the only UEFA members placed behind Malta on the list.
The next rankings are expected to be issued on September 21, following Malta’s home Euro qualifier against North Macedonia.
