Beaten on Friday at home by Uruguay (2-0), as part of qualifying for the 2026 World Cup, the Argentines fell for the first time since their coronation in the World Cup, in December 2022. Following this defeat, the band by Lionel Messi gave up first place in the Fifa rankings, in favor of the French team, winners on Saturday evening in Gibraltar (14-0).
If the Blues win on Tuesday evening in Greece, still as part of the Euro 2024 qualifiers, Didier Deschamps' men, who have 1877.61 points, counting the victory against Gibraltar on Saturday evening (1843.865 points for Argentina), will still accumulate new units and will be assured of ending the year at the top of the Fifa rankings, a first since 2001. And this, regardless of the result of Argentina, which will face Brazil on Wednesday. News that makes you smile.
