The French team, at the foot of the podium in the FIFA rankings for a while, regains its place among the three best nations on the planet in the ranking of the International Federation.

According to the new ranking unveiled on Thursday, the Blues have gained a place thanks to their status as World Cup finalists and occupy third place.

Argentina, the big winner of the World Cup, climbs again to find itself in second position, just behind Brazil, which retains its first place.

The Seleçao is just ahead of the Albiceleste who could have passed their South American rival if they had beaten France without resorting to the penalty shootout.
