Roy Hodgson's men listed as fifth in FIFA world rankings
England have been listed as fifth in the latest FIFA world rankings, dropping two spots from their previous all-time high of third earlier this year.
Roy Hodgson's men have beaten Italy and Moldova and drawn with Ukraine since then, with Portugal's recent World Cup qualifying results seeing them jumping up two places to take England's spot and Argentina climbing into fourth place.
The reigning World and European Champions, Spain, still top the ranking table, which takes into account a nation’s results over the last four years, with Germany in second place.
Colombia are the big movers, rising by 13 places to tenth following victories over Chile and Uruguay in the South American qualifiers.
England have won eight of the 13 matches played in the last year, losing only once in normal time, to Netherlands in February.
The Three Lions qualified unbeaten for Euro 2012 where they reached the quarter finals, only to lose on penalties to eventual runners-up Italy.
England’s next matches see them back in World Cup qualifying action, hosting San Marino at Wembley on 12 October before travelling to Poland on 16 October.
