On the global stage, the 2017 Confederations Cup triumph lifted Germany back on top of the world rankings for the first time since being knocked off the top spot exactly two years ago.

After their 1-0 win over Chile (seventh, down three) in Saint Petersburg, the newly crowned FIFA Confederations Cup champions have narrowly overtaken Brazil (second, down one) and leapfrogged Argentina (third, down one).

European neighbours Poland (sixth, up four) also have cause to celebrate, having risen to their best-ever ranking.

Some 177 matches around the globe saw many UEFA members rewarded.

Portugal (fourth, up four) and Switzerland (fifth, up four) have made strong gains in the top 10, while Sweden (18th, up 16) and Iceland (19th, up three) – their best-ever placing – have climbed into the top 20.

Andorra (129th, up 57) were the month’s biggest movers and the likes of Peru (14th, up one), Northern Ireland (22nd, up six), Congo DR (28th, up 11), Curaçao (68th, up twp), and Mauritania (81st, up 23) all join Poland and Iceland in registering their highest positions to date.

The next FIFA/Coca-Cola World Ranking will be published on 10 August, 2017.
