FIFA RANKINGS: BRAZIL KNOCK GERMANY OFF TOP SPOT AND TOP 20 IN FULL

Brazil have returned to the top of the FIFA rankings, ending Germany’s one-month reign at the summit.

The reigning World Cup champions, who had moved into first place in July after winning the Confederations Cup, dropped into second for the August rankings, despite the fact that neither they nor Brazil played no games since the last update.

 

 

Argentina, meanwhile, remain third in the August rankings update, but there was movement beneath them as Switzerland rose to fourth and Poland entered the top five for the first time in their history. Moving up one place into fifth in the FIFA rankings marks continued improvement for Robert Lewandowski and co., who jumped four places last month.

1 Brazil Up 1
2 Germany Down 1
3 Argentina No Movement
4 Switzerland Up 1
5 Poland Up 1
6 Portugal Down 2

14 Mexico Up 2
15 Peru Down 1
16 Croatia Down 1
17 Uruguay No Movement

19 Sweden Down 1
20 Iceland Down 1

Elsewhere, after moving up four places last month, Euro 2016 winners Portugal dropped two places into sixth and there were no new entries in the top 10, with giants Spain (11th), Italy (12th) and England (13th) remaining stationary.

Gareth Bale’s Wales strengthened their position in the top 20 after moving up two places into 18th, but Sweden and Iceland each fell one place to 19th and 20th respectively.

Following their Gold Cup success, the USA climbed nine places and now occupy 26th place, while defeated finalists Jamaica achieved the biggest move by points, catapulting 19 places into 57th.

Northern Ireland reached their highest ever ranking last month, but have dropped one place in the latest edition to 23rd, while their southern counterparts the Republic of Ireland remain unchanged at 29th. The Netherlands, meanwhile, continued their slide down the table after dropping four places into 36th position.

Next month’s rankings update will be announced on September 14.
