FIFA RANKING | SPAIN DROPS TO 8TH POSITION

As expected Spain has been dethroned from the Nº1 spot on the FIFA World Ranking. Their disastrous Brazil 2014 World Cup campaign - with elimination after just two Group matches - puts the Spain National Team down to the 8th position after reigning in the Nº1 spot for the last 6 straight years.

The newly crowed FIFA World Champions Germany now takes the Nº 1 spot with 1,724 pts & Argentina runner-up is in second position. The rest of the placings take more or less how the Nations ended in the recent World Cup.

Spain has a chance to add some points & perhaps lift in rankings when they meet Germany in a International Friendly match here in Spain (Vigo) in Novembre.
