The Armenian national team has moved 17 positions up and is currently ranked in 38th place with 687 points in the FIFA World Ranking released today. Reigning world and European champions Spain tops the list followed by Germany and Argentine.

The result comes after Armenia’s successful performance in the recent FIFA World Cup qualification matches. Armenia first beat Bulgaria 2-1 at home and tied Italy 2-2 in Naples.

The overall campaign that also included away victories over Denmark and the Czech Republic, however, only boosted Armenia’s standing in world soccer to build on the reputation that Vardan Minasyan’s side had after the previous qualifying campaign for Euro-2012.

The 38th place is a record for Armenia, the 41st position had been the best so far.

Armenia’s neighbors all are ranked lower with Turkey (40th), Iran (49th), Azerbaijan (88th) and Georgia (100th)
