Egypt drop one place in Federation Internationale de Football Association rankings, retain Africa's top spot

India slide down one spot to 97th in latest Fifa rankings

Federation Internationale de Football Association announced their latest rankings on Thursday, with Tite's Brazil moving into first place as 2014 World Cup winners Germany dropped down to second. The Blue Tigers didn't play a single global fixture in July, nor did most other nations, but still managed to hold on to their top 100 status, a lofty one by their standards.

Uganda remains the best placed East African country having moved a place up to 73rd while Rwanda have scaled up eight places, moving to 119th courtesy of their win over Tanzania in the CHAN 2018 qualifiers last month.

At the upper half of the table, Brazil have gained the top spot from Germany while Argentina, Switzerland and Poland complete the top five.

India are now on 341 points and are lagging four points behind 96th placed Zambia.


The biggest movers were Namibia, who have jumped 20 places to reach 136th in the world.

India will play a tri-nation tournament featuring Mauritius and St Kitts and Nevis this month before their all-important AFC Asian Cup 2019 qualifier in Macau in September. Constantine took over as the national team's coach for the second time in February 2015 and since then the team has moved up by 77 places in the rankings.

The Maltese national side has been in a steady decline over the past months.
