Brazil climb, England slump in rankings

Brazil have climbed 13 places to ninth in the FIFA World Rankings following their Confederations Cup win, while England have slipped to their lowest position in five years.

• ESPN Stats & Info: Brazil is best

The World Cup 2014 hosts had slipped down the rankings due to a lack of competitive football but have been restored to a loftier position following wins against Japan, Mexico, Italy, Uruguay and a 3-0 win against world and European champions Spain in the final.

England fall six places to 15th, behind Bosnia, Greece and the Ivory Coast, following a less than convincing start to their World Cup qualifying campaign which sees them in a three-way race with Montenegro and Ukraine to qualify.

Spain retain top spot, with Germany second, but Colombia are the surprise climbers and move into third place ahead of Argentina.

France drop five places to 23rd while the United States climb six into 22nd. Scotland are up 24 places to 50th still a place behind Cape Verde Islands and Wales drop one spot into 46th. The Republic of Ireland drop three places to 44th.
