Germany have risen to the top of the FIFA
World Rankings after a successful World
Cup campaign in Brazil.
Argentina‘s 2nd place at the tourney was
enough to push them up 3 spots up to
2nd, and Louis van Gaal ‘s Holland went
up an amazing 12 spots to complete the
top 3.
All of the teams that exited the World Cup
in the quarter-finals have climbed up the
ranking: Colombia (fourth, up four)
, Belgium (fifth, up six), France (tenth, up
seven) and Costa Rica (16th, up 12 –
the Ticos’ highest-ever ranking).
Former champions Spain have fallen from
the top spot to eighth place,
while Portugal (11th, down seven)
, Italy (14th, down five)
and England (20th, down ten) have all
dropped out of the top ten following their
first-round exits. World Cup hosts Brazil,
meanwhile, have dropped four places to
seventh position.
Nigeria‘s round 0f 16 finish catapulted
them to 34th place, up from their
previous place of 44th.
