Tamás Székely 2016.01.08.

The last months of the last year saw only minor changes in the official FIFA world rankings as Hungary still occupy the 20th place, the best position the national team have ever reached. Although the Hungarian football enjoyed its golden age in the 1950s and 1960s, the official FIFA rankings was introduced only in 1991.


Hungary climbed up to the 20th place thanks to a double playoff win over Norway in November. Euro 2016 rivals Portugal come at the seventh place, while Austria and Iceland are ranked 10th and 36th respectively. According to FIFA, Beglium is still the best football team in the world, leading ahead of Argentina, Spain and Germany.
