Colombia national soccer team dropped one spot on the FIFA World
Ranking, and are now in a rather disappointing 44th place between
countries as Hungary and Norway.
The top fifty of the ranking showed very few changes due to the lack of international activity in April. Nevertheless, Hungary climbed a spot at the expense of Colombia.
The team that went to all three World Cup’s in the nineties and won the Copa América in 2001, once belonged to the top countries of the world ranking. In 1996 and later in 2002, they even occupied the fourth position momentarily.
The current 44th spot however, is only seven positions away from Colombia’s worst ever placing, 51st in February this year.
The ranking is led by European champions Spain, ahead of Germany and the Netherlands. Brazil are the best South American country, while Colombia are seventh on the continental ranking. Only Peru, Venezuela and Bolivia are behind.
