Ireland Move Up In The FIFA World Rankings

Ireland rise in latest FIFA rankings

Mohamed Salah's Egypt dropped from 45th to 65th.

It took two years of reviews and studies to finalise the new formula.

The Pharaohs failed to win a game in the World Cup, falling 3-1 to Saudi Arabia in the last match.

The not too impressive performance of the senior men national team at the Russia Mundial could not be argued as the reason for Eagles nosedive on the ranking.

Tunisia is world's number 24, and Africa's No.1.

There is little movement from teams who were not present at the World Cup with Wales moving down one place to 19th, Northern Ireland up two places to 27th and Scotland also up two places to 40th.

They are followed by Senegal, Congo Dr, Ghana, Morocco and Cameroon.

The new formula, approved by the FIFA Council before the World Cup, relied on adding or subtracting points depending on the results of matches rather than averaging points over a given period of time.

The changes, of which there are several, include the fact that inactive teams now preserve their point totals, with no devaluation of older games.

England, meanwhile, have shot up six places to sixth in the latest list with Croatia big movers - the World Cup runners-up going from 20th to 4th, up 16 places.

Les Bleu beat Croatia 4-2 in the final to assume top spot for the first time since May 2002.

Runners-up Croatia jumped all the way from 20th to fourth, surprise packets England moved from 12th to sixth and quarter-finalists Sweden and Russian Federation made significant improvements.

Argentina are down six places to 11th while Germany, champions four years ago, plummet to 15th from their previous position of 1st.

Early tournament exits for Iceland and Costa Rica have seen Ireland benefit.
