Spain continues in the Nº1 spot even though the team lost to South Africa in their last Friendly International match. There was a chance that the game could be called null due to the "goalkeeping extra substitute" issue ( > 6 changes ) , but FIFA has announced that it stands & will be official. Spain has a "healthy" points lead over second placed Germany which is second. The Nation that has made a big leap in positions is Portugal which lifts nine places into the Nº 5 position.
The next actualization of the FIFA Rankings will be next month.
