Uruguay move to second in rankings

Uruguay have moved to second in the FIFA world rankings, ahead of Germany, despite drawing all three of their fixtures so far in 2012.

La Celeste, who won the 2011 Copa America in Argentina, are now the nearest challengers to Spain who once more stretched their lead at the top of the official list.

Brazil, England and Argentina moved upwards to fifth, sixth and seventh respectively, while the biggest losers among the top sides were Portugal, who dropped five places to tenth in the world.

The biggest movers overall were African side Benin, whose away draw with Burkina Faso and 1-0 win over Mali propelled them up 52 places to 72nd spot in the chart.

The ranking list is released monthly, based upon a points average over the last four years, explaining Uruguay being able to move up without having won a game this year.
