Reigning world champions Spain continue to dominate the standings despite their recent draw with France but Roy Hodgson's side have fallen out of the top five

England have dropped one position to sixth in the latest Fifa ranking whilst reigning world and European champions Spain have retained top spot.

Vicente Del Bosque's men have consolidated their position despite their 1-1 draw with France, but Argentina have leapfrogged Portugal to climb to third in the standings.

Lionel Messi and his team-mates recorded victories over Uruguay (who fell out of the top 10) and Chile in the past month to win one position.

Germany have held on to second place despite their disappointing results of late. Italy complete the top five as they rise three positions following wins against Armenia and Denmark.
