England fall down one spot into seventh place in FIFA's world rankings, while Germany replace the Netherlands in the second spot.

England have dropped one place down to seventh in FIFA's latest world rankings, 310 points adrift of number one occupants Spain.

The Three Lions, who are now the fifth highest-ranked European national team, are in the same place that they were following their disastrous World Cup campaign in 2010.

The Netherlands have relinquished their number two spot for fourth in the list, while Germany have swooped in to claim a place below Spain.

Uruguay have been placed in third position, making the Copa America winners the only non-European nation in the top five of the rankings.

Both Wales and Scotland have climbed up the list into 41st and 48th place respectively, while Northern Ireland have fallen down to the 100th spot in FIFA's rankings.
