Lionel Messi’s Argentina, holder of the Copa América and winner in June of the ‘Finalissima’ against Italy, European champion (3-0), is installed on the third step of the podium with 1770, 65 points.

This progression of the Albiceleste is at the expense of the Blues, ousted from the top three after a very heterogeneous month of June.

Didier Deschamps’ team, exhausted after a long season, has not won any of its four Nations League games in the period and already has 1,764.85 points in this ranking wanted by the president of the French Federation Noël Le Graët.

The other big change in the top 10 is the fact that Mexico loses three places and falls to 12th place, which allows Denmark, executioner of the Blues (2-1) at the beginning of June and future opponent of France in Qatar , to be invited to 10th place, ahead of Germany (11th).
