Brazil still holds onto number one spot, while the Czech Republic continued its steady climb up the rankings by overtaking Argentina and France to be second. The Netherlands and England also climbed two spots to be 5th and 6th respectively, while Germany slipped to 20th, mainly because they are not playing any World Cup qualifiers.
