White, Blues & Reds move up one place to 96th while Iceland hits an all-time high 18th

The Faroe Islands have moved up one place to the 96th position in the FIFA Ranking released on Thursday despite having played no game since last October.

Meanwhile, Iceland has moved up two places to an all-time high position of 18th in the latest FIFA/Coca-Cola World Ranking.

This is one of the more notable changes in a February table left largely unaltered by a quiet period of international action, writes Fifa.com.
