London, July 9 (ANI): Wales has achieved its highest FIFA rankings by featuring in the top 10 for the first time in the latest rankings released by the world’s football governing body.
Wales, whose previous highest ranking was 22nd, have moved up 12 places to be placed at the 10th position, the BBC reported.
Chris Coleman’s side have entered the top 10 after Gareth Bale’s goal secured them a 1-0 win over Belgium in a Euro 2016 qualifier in June.
Wales coach Osian Roberts said that it was a remarkable achievement but it was the testimony to all the hard work that the players had put in.
Meanwhile, the reigning European champions Spain find themselves two places below Coleman’s side.
Argentina have retained the top spot despite losing to Chile on penalties in the Copa America final. (ANI)
