Spain continue to lead Fifa Rankings

The World Cup winners hold on to top spot, with the Dutch still their biggest rivals as there are little changes in the top ten
World Cup holders Spain continue to set the pace in the Fifa Rankings as the Furia Roja again hold on to top spot.

Netherlands, who were beaten 1-0 by Spain in the 2010 final in South Africa, still sit second in the standings, significantly ahead of Brazil, Germany and Argentina.

There are few changes in the top 25, as only seven international 'A' matches were played since the last edition of the Fifa Rankings were released, with Chile overtaking Japan to go 13th the only major move.

Meanwhile, Senegal return to the top 50 for the first time since January 2009 as they climbed 11 places.

Uefa continues to be the best-represented confederation in the top 50, with 29 teams, followed by Caf (9 teams), Conmebol (6), Afc (4), and Concacaf (3).
