The Korean national soccer team, which fought hard in the World Cup, was predicted to jump three places in the FIFA rankings to be announced today (22nd).

Foreign media such as ESPN and Sky Sports predicted and released the FIFA rankings that will be reflected after the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.

According to this ranking, Korea, which was ranked 28th last October, is now at 25th, moving up three places.

Although they lost to Ghana in the group stage, it seems to be thanks to their progress to the round of 16 by drawing with Uruguay and beating Portugal.

Japan, which defeated Germany and Spain in the group stage, is expected to rise to 20th, the highest in Asia, and Iran, which previously held the top spot in Asia, is expected to drop from 20th to 24th.

Brazil retained the first place, and Argentina, who won the World Cup with Messi at the fore, was expected to take second place.

These official FIFA rankings will be published today.
