Internationals: England drop in the rankings with Scotland and Wales, whilst N. Ireland move up


England have dropped a place to 6th in the FIFA world rankings. The rankings now take in the last two competitive internationals, in which England recorded an unsurprising 5-0 victory against Moldova and a slightly disappointing 1-1 draw against Poland. 

Italy are the side that move above them, whilst Spain and Germany hold on to their top spots after impressive qualifying campaigns so far. Argentina have replaced Portugal in third place, after the latter's shock draw at home to Northern Ireland.

This result contributed to the side's 17 place jump up the rankings to sit as the 100th best ranked team in the side.

Meanwhile, Scotland, who sacked manager Craig Levein earlier on in the week after lengthy consideration by the SFA, have dropped 14 places. The Scots were a place above Wales in 56th, but after losing to The Welshmen in a qualifier now drop below them to 70th.

The Welsh also dropped but courtesy of that victory they only fell to 66th.

Elsewhere, Belgium climbed ten places to break in to the top 20, whilst their rivals France dropped five places, and the former World and European champions are now ranked 18th. Russia and Croatia both moved into the top ten at the expense of Uruguay and Greece.
