THE Republic of Ireland are up to 39th in the FIFA World rankings, which have been released today.

Giovanni Trapattoni’s side have risen two places up the ranks, from 39. England, however, are riding high in the rankings, having moved up to fourth after beating Brazil in last week’s friendly at Wembley.
Five-times World Cup winners and 2014 World Cup hosts Brazil remained in 18th spot, their lowest-ever ranking.

Scotland went up five spots to 64th after Gordon Strachan's opening-match win last week against Estonia.

Wales moved 13 up to 68th after beating Austria, but Northern Ireland dropped out of the top-100 following their draw with Malta.

There was no change in the top three where world and European champions Spain lead, followed by Germany and Argentina.

The Turks and Caicos Islands, Bhutan and San Marino were tied in 207th and last place.
