Italy stay 14th in world

The latest FIFA World Rankings are out for August and in a largely unchanged top 20, Italy remain in 14th position.

The Azzurri’s disastrous World Cup campaign in Brazil this summer saw them drop to a four-year low ranking in July’s listings.

With little international activity in the last month, the top 20 nations in August’s FIFA Rankings remain largely untouched, with the Azzurri holding on to 14th place.

Spain have moved back up one position to seventh, but the next change is just beneath Italy, with Costa Rica, Croatia and Mexico all moving up one position, as the United States drop to 18th.

World champions Germany remain in top spot, followed by Argentina and the Netherlands.
