Qatar’s national football team climbed three places in the newly-released FIFA world rankings, finishing 58th in June to become the sixth best team in the Arab world and Asia.
Scoring 1393.52 points to nail the 58th position, Qatar surpassed the likes of Ghana, Slovenia, and Bosnia and Herzegovina to land one spot below Panama at 1399.23.
Last year, Qatar climbed back into the top 50 teams after repositioning in the 58th spot. Following a successful campaign at the CONCACAF Gold Cup 2021, the Qatari national football team advanced 16 places to 42nd.

The newly-released FIFA world rankings put world champions Argentina at the top, striking aside Brazil.

Argentina holds only a few points ahead of World Cup runners-up France as it retains 1843.73 points, with the Parisians ranking at 1843.54.
The June rankings also placed England up one position to fourth ahead of Belgium, Croatia, and the Netherlands.

Unlike the US, Germany’s woeful performance in the international games placed the team at 15th.
However, the most significant climb in this month’s ranking has come from the dark horse of Kazakhstan, which moved up eight positions to 104th.
