Brazil replace Germany atop Federation Internationale de Football Association rankings

Brazil has knocked Germany off the top of the Fédération Internationale de Football Association (FIFA) rankings released on Thursday.

Uganda remains the best placed East African country having moved a place up to 73rd while Rwanda have scaled up eight places, moving to 119th courtesy of their win over Tanzania in the CHAN 2018 qualifiers last month.

Malta has the same points as Liechtenstein, and the only other European nations below are San Marino and Gibraltar. That aside, the Bengaluru FC players are in pre-season ahead of the club's AFC Cup knockout ties starting this month, hence expect India to field a weakened side with no Sunil Chhetri. Poland's lowest place was 78th, in 2013.

Malta's best ever position was 66 in 1993.

The South-Americans haven't played a match since June, where they were beaten by arch-rivals Argentina in a friendly but World Cup qualifying victories over Uruguay and Paraguay in March meant they would replace Germany at the summit of world football. Coached by Stephen Constantine, the Indian football team had reached one of its highest spot (96) recently but slipped again since there was hardly any global match scheduled for it in the month of July.

Spain (11th), Italy (12th) and England (13th) are also unchanged.
