Northern Ireland have moved up the FIFA world rankings and are now in 62nd place, despite the team's poor performance in the Nations Cup.

The Republic of Ireland, after winning their last two Euro 2012 qualifiers, climb three places to 31 in the standings.

England are fourth in the FIFA rankings and move above Brazil and Argentina, despite only reaching the last 16 in last year's World Cup.

The last time England were in fourth place was in 1997, after a good run in the European Championships.

Scotland have moved above Northern Ireland in the rankings and are in 61st place.
