Soccer: Win for Euro 2020 and ranking

Italy 18th in FIFA standings

(ANSA) - Udine, March 22 - Italy coach Roberto Mancini said on the eve of a Euro qualifier against Finland in Udine that a win would help Italy rise in the FIFA rankings.
    Italy has been steady at 18th in the rankings for several months.
    "We'd like to get back up this ranking a bit, which we don't like much also in view of the World Cup draw," he said.
    After Finland, Italy play Liechtenstein in Parma next Tuesday in another Euro qualifier.
