IRELAND HAVE moved up two places in the latest Fifa world rankings, which were published today.

The Boys in Green, who recorded a 1-1 draw against Poland in last month’s Euro 2016 qualifier thanks to Shane Long’s late equaliser, climb from 64th to 62th — just below African trio Zambia, South Africa and Equatorial Guinea.

Meanwhile, Wales have climbed 15 places to 22nd to achieve their highest ever position.

It was a 3-0 win in Israel that earned Wales their leap in the rankings, but next up for Coleman’s men is the visit of group leaders Belgium, who climbed above Colombia to third.

Brazil and Uruguay also made gains, while Spain and Switzerland return to the top 10 at the expense of France and Italy. Germany remain in top spot with Argentina sitting second.

Bhutan, meanwhile, make the biggest jump, climbing 128 places to 163rd in the world.
