England: Up to 12th in world rankings

England climbed three places from the last rankings published in February, knocking Chile, the USA and Greece down the table.

Wales also saw a positive change in position after beating Iceland 3-1 on 5th March. They have now crept into the top 50 with 609 points and are in 49th place.

Despite defeating Poland 1-0 in their international, Scotland have dropped three places since last month but remain 37th in the table, 11 points ahead of Turkey.

Northern Ireland drew with Cyprus 0-0 in Nicosia and dropped one place to 86th. They remain three points behind Uganda who also dropped down one position.

The top five teams remain unchanged from last month; Spain are still ranked first in the world almost 200 points ahead of second-placed Germany.

England's highest ranking position since the creation of the world rankings in 1993 was fourth place, achieved in 1997.

xcellent! Not sure if he is any good as a manager (never thought about it) but the 'headbutt in the technical area' and what he said to Pelligrini were just brilliant, it was as if he was trying to recreate the end of the Alan Partridge Xmas special when Alan punched a man in a wheelchair and verbally abused Tony Heirs.
