The International Federation of Association Football (FIFA) on Thursday issued its new World Ranking.

Accordingly, the Armenian national squad have dropped one spot from the previous World Ranking and are now 91st in the new FIFA standings. The squad’s once 30th ranking, however, was a record-breaking high for the country.

Armenia have played no games since the previous standings.

Reigning world champions Germany still top the FIFA World Ranking, where Brazil and current European champions Portugal are still second and third, respectively.

Armenia will play their next two friendlies in the coming month. On March 24, they will face Estonia, and on March 27—Lithuania.

“I should like to see any power of the world destroy this race, this small tribe of unimportant people, whose wars have all been fought and lost, whose structures have crumbled, literature is unread, music is unheard, and prayers are no more answered. Go ahead, destroy Armenia . See if you can do it. Send them into the desert without bread or water. Burn their homes and churches. Then see if they will not laugh, sing and pray again. For when two of them meet anywhere in the world, see if they will not create a New Armenia.” - WS
