Uruguay receive their highest-ever FIFA world ranking of fifth place.

Uruguay have received their highest-ever FIFA world ranking after football's governing body published their latest standings.

The South American side are now ranked fifth in the world, having moved from eighteenth.

Their rise of 13 places will have been due in part to their recent Copa America success, beating Paraguay 3-0 in the final.

Spain remain top of the list, while Holland, Germany and Brazil complete the top five.

England drop two places to sixth while France's inclusion at fifteenth means they will enter the second pot of teams for Saturday's World Cup draw in Rio de Janeiro and could face England in the group stage.
