Socceroos move up in world rankings

The Socceroos have moved up to 58 in the latest FIFA world rankings released on Thursday.

After two relatively easy wins in FIFA World Cup Russia 2018 Qualifiers over Bangladesh and Tajikistan in early September, Australia’s ranking has improved.

Australia was at 61 in the previous month’s rankings. 

Jordan, who face the Socceroos on October 8 in a crucial World Cup qualifier in Amman, have tumbled eight spots in the rankings to 99.
