Finalists Argentina sit second in the table, while the Netherlands reside third and 2010 world champions Spain have fallen seven places to eighth.

Wales have dropped three spots to 44th place, Scotland remain 27th, the Republic of Ireland have kept their 70th place, and Northern Ireland move up one to 89th.
