  • Germany drop 14 places in FIFA rankings

    Germany’s exit in the group stage of the World Cup has seen them plummet to 15th in FIFA’s world rankings — their lowest position in more than a decade.

    The defending World Cup champions entered the competition No. 1 in the rankings, but they failed to reach the knockout rounds and made their earliest exit from the tournament in 80 years.

    They were ranked No. 22 in March 2006 but finished the year ranked No. 6 after finishing third at the World Cup.

    France are top of the rankings after winning their second World Cup, returning to the spot for the first time since 2002. Belgium are second, Brazil are third and Croatia, the runners-up, are fourth.
