Germany maintain top spot in FIFA ranking

World Cup holders Germany have retained the top spot in the FIFA men’s team rankings after the latest round of international matches while Belgium have climbed to third ahead of the 2018 finals in Russia. A total of 133 matches were played in March, including international friendlies and 13 competitive games in the AFC Asian Cup.

Tunisia and Uruguay were among the big movers as they entered the top 20 while the matches in Asia helped Oman, Chinese Taipei and Philippines improve their rankings. FIFA’s newest members Kosovo, who climbed 24 spots to 152nd, and Gibraltar, who leaped 10 spots to 196th, also benefited from friendly victories.

Further down, and while the likes of Northern Ireland (24th, up 2), Austria (28th, up 1) and Jamaica (49th, up 1) have all edged up the order, only one team in the top 50 – the Czech Republic (43rd, up 3) – have made a jump of three or more places. The biggest climbers overall, meanwhile, are Andorra (130th, up 7), who are now five spots away from equaling their best-ever position.

However, the scarcity of recent matches means that there are no new entries into the top 50, and that the regional composition of that group remains unchanged, with UEFA accounting for 30 of the top 50 teams, ahead of CONMEBOL (9), CAF (5), CONCACAF (4), AFC (2) and OFC (0).

Here are the Top 10 rankings: 
1. Germany (1)
2. Brazil (2)
3. Belgium (5)
4. Portugal (3)
5. Argentina (4)
6. Switzerland (8)
7. France (9)
8. Spain (6)
9. Chile (10)
10. Poland (6)
11. Peru (11)
12. Denmark (12)
13. England (16)
14. Tunisia (23)
15. Mexico (17)
