IRELAND HAVE FALLEN three places in the latest Fifa Rankings and are now 29th overall in the world, just above Bosnia and Herzegovina, but below Senegal, Costa Rica and DR Congo.

Over the past month, Martin O’Neill’s men have beaten Uruguay, but also lost to Mexico and drew their crucial 2018 World Cup qualifier with Austria 1-1.

Meanwhile, there is better news for Northern Ireland, who jump six places to 22nd. Wales fall seven places to 20th, England remain unchanged in 13th and Scotland jump up three places to 58th, after earning a recent hard-fought draw with Gareth Southgate’s side.

Meanwhile, Germany have claimed top spot after their recent Confederations Cup success.

Previous leaders Brazil are down to second, with Argentina also dropping a spot to third.

Portugal, Switzerland, Poland, Chile, Colombia, France and Belgium make up the rest of the top 10.
