The improvement comes after two encouraging UEFA EURO 2020 qualifiying victories earlier this month.

The men’s national team has leapt nine places in FIFA’s world rankings after two more recent victories.

Marco Rossi’s side lie in 42nd position in the latest FIFA list after defeating Azerbaijan 3-1 away from home on 8th June and Wales 1-0 four days later in Budapest, the squad’s first matches since FIFA’s previous rankings were released in April.

Hungary’s group rivals Croatia, Wales, Slovakia and Azerbaijan are placed sixth, 23rd, 31st and 110th spot respectively.

Two other national teams made the same margin of improvement as Hungary; Armenia and Malaysia also moving nine places towards the top of the list where Belgium, 2018 World Cup runners-up, currently reside, 28 points ahead of world champions France.
