Wales have jumped 13 places in the FIFA rankings, thanks to their 2-1 friendly victory over Austria last week.

Chris Coleman's side are now 68th, four places behind Scotland.

Wales rose from 116th in the world to 48th under Gary Speed in 2011, before slipping back again when Coleman endured a difficult start as manager.
