Italy have leapfrogged Germany in the FIFA World Ranking, rising one place to 15th.
Italy dropped to 16th in July after Chile overtook them with a semi-final finish at Copa America.
However, wins against Armenia and Finland in Euro 2020 qualifying this month have moved the Azzurri up a spot to 15th.
Chile, in turn, have fallen three places after defeat to Honduras, while Germany’s 4-2 home reverse against Netherlands sees them drop directly behind La Nazionale.
Belgium remain top of the ranking, with Spain the biggest movers in the top 10 after rising to seventh from 10th.
