Brazil has lost top spot in the FIFA World Ranking to Germany.

Spain couldn't make it to the top ten list as it languishes in 11th position while the home of football England is in 15th spot followed by four time world champion Italy in 17th position.

The reigning World Cup champions rose one spot from last month's rankings while Brazil are now placed second.

SCOTLAND have risen 15 places to number 43 in the Federation Internationale de Football Association world rankings following victories over Lithuania and Malta.

Do you something awesome to share with the world?

And if you believe traditional powers like France, Spain and Italy are now better than Poland and Switzerland, regardless of rankings, then you probably believe the new procedure could introduce more group-to-group disparity.

Hosts Russia will be automatically seeded in Pot 1 alongside the other top-seven nations, while Brazil's spot is also guaranteed given they have already qualified and are guaranteed to be ranked in the top seven.

The Eagles' next World Cup qualifying opponents, Zambia, improved heavily in the rankings as they moved up 18 places to 78th.
