Other countries moving in the right direction were Spain (7th,+1), Italy (12th,+1), the Netherlands (13th,+1), and Germany (14th,+1), with each gaining one place in the global classification. Wales (21st,+2) climbed two rungs but remain outside the top 20.
Russia, hosts of the last FIFA World Cup, are further back in 32nd but had the biggest gain in this edition, ascending six places courtesy of wins over Serbia (31st,-2) and Hungary (52nd, unchanged).
