FIFA placed Kosovo 119 in the world by
gaining one position up, and commended the National Team for their valiant
showing in UEFA EURO 2020 qualifying by reaching their best-ever position in
the FIFA Ranking.
In FIFA’s previous world ranking updated on
25 July 2019 Kosovo was ranked at 120, between Tajikistan and Namibia. They
moved up one spot since the previous rankings and they currently have 1164 points.
Kosovo during the September matches of the UEFA EURO 2020 qualifiers won over
Czech Republic (2:1) home and were defeated by England (5:3) away. This was the
first defeat after their last 15 international matches – a run which saw them
top their Nations League group in the lowest tier of the competition. In
October, Kosovo will play two games home, a friendly against Gibraltar and will
host Montenegro in Pristina as part of the Euro 2020 qualification campaign. /GazetaExpress/
