England have slipped to fifth in the latest Fifa rankings after drawing 1-1 at home to Ukraine in their World Cup 2014 qualifier on September 10.

England now sit on 1196 points, 12 behind the Argentines, and a massive 215 behind Spain, with the reigning world and European champions unsurprisingly staying top of the rankings with 1611 points.

Germany have held on to second place, while Netherlands are up to sixth, displacing Uruguay in the process.

Elsewhere, the Republic of Ireland are 28th, while Scotland have fallen nine places to 56th. Chris Coleman's poor start as Wales manager has seen his side slide 12 places to 57th. However, Northern Ireland have climbed 12 spots to 117th despite a disappointing 1-1 draw with Luxembourg.

Euro 2004 champions Greece have made the top 10, climbing above Croatia in doing so, while Columbia have flown up to ninth place, climbing 13 positions in the process, and Brazil sit in 14th place.
