Martin O'Neill's Republic of Ireland side have climbed one place to 30th in the latest FIFA world rankings.

Algeria's drop from 28th to 36th has allowed Ireland to move into the top 30 but they still trail behind Michael O'Neill's Northern Ireland who are in 29th.

Ireland's Group E opponents at Euro 2016, Belgium, remain at number one with Italy in 15th and Sweden five places behind us in 35th.

England are unchanged in ninth, Chris Coleman's Wales are 17th and Scotland are 46th.
