Italy stay 12th in FIFA rankings

Italy have remained in 12th position in the latest FIFA rankings, with Brazil returning to top spot.

There was no change in the Azzurri’s position from the most recent rankings, given they haven’t played since beating Liechtenstein 5-0 on June 11.

Giampiero Ventura’s side therefore remain between Spain in 10th and England in 12th in the world rankings.

Brazil have returned to the top of the list, leapfrogging Germany, with Argentina in third place and Switzerland in fourth.

Curaçao have taken the biggest fall, sliding down 18 place to 86th, with Namibia the most improved after climbing 20 places to 136th.
