Brazil hit record low in FIFA rankings

Brazil have dropped to their lowest-ever
position in the FIFA rankings, falling
three places to 22nd.
Luiz Felipe Scolari’s side, who have won
the World Cup on five occasions, are
now between Ghana and Mali due to a
combination of poor results and non-
competitive fixtures.
With Brazil hosting the 2014 World Cup,
they have had no qualifiers to play and
have simply featured in friendly fixtures,
with the last five of these seeing one
win for the South Americans and four
draws.
Scolari’s men will have the chance to
move up the rankings when they play
their first competitive game since July
2011 at the Confederations Cup later
this month.
Elsewhere in the rankings, the top four
remains unchanged with Spain,
Germany, Argentina and Croatia
occupying these spots, while top-10
sides Portugal, Columbia and England all
fall.
It is also a historic moment for four
nations who are now ranked higher than
ever before, with Mali (23rd), Belgium
(12th), Bosnia (15th) and Albania (38th)
all recording their best-ever positions.
