Wales will be officially better than Brazil if they win tomorrow

Chris Coleman’s men could also go third in the world if they win their pivotal match tomorrow.

WALES’ METEORIC RISE in international football continued on Thursday, after a 1-0 win over Cyprus in Nicosia put them on the brink of qualification.

Having been ranked 117th four years ago, they are now ninth — above England — in the world rankings.

Moreover, should the Welsh beat Israel at Cardiff City Stadium on Sunday, not only would they qualify for the Euros, it would also be enough to see them go ahead of teams such as Brazil in the next world rankings and place fourth at worst.

Chris Coleman’s men could also go third if they win on Sunday and Germany drop points against Scotland, while an unlikely Cyprus win over Belgium could even see them go second.
