GENEVA, April 7. /TASS/. The Russian national football team dropped down by four positions to the 27th place in the monthly world ranking list of the International Federation of Football Associations (FIFA), published on Thursday.
According to the statement from FIFA, "A total of 171 games have been taken into account for the April edition of the FIFA/Coca-Cola World Ranking which includes 51 qualifiers for the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia™, 60 continental qualifiers and 60 international friendlies."
Last month Russia played two friendly matches defeating at home guests Lithuania 3-0 on March 26 and then losing its away fixture on March 29 to France 2-4.
The 2014 World Cup vice champions Argentina moved to the first place of the newly published rankings overthrowing Belgium, which had been topping the list for five months in a row taking the reign last November.
"The Albiceleste’s recent performances in FIFA World Cup qualifying have helped them end Belgium’s five-month-long reign at the summit of football’s world ranking which began when the Red Devils snatched pole position from Argentina back in November 2015," the statement said.
Argentina and Belgium are followed by Chile in the third place and the rest of the top ten below the first three leaders are Colombia, Germany, Spain, Brazil, Portugal, Uruguay and England.
The next FIFA world ranking list will be published on May 5.
