Ireland 29th in FIFA rankings

The Republic of Ireland have climbed to 29th in the latest FIFA world rankings.

The Boys In Green were ranked 42nd in November but wins against Gibraltar, Georgia and Germany in their Euro 2016 qualifying group, coupled with the play-off defeat of Bosnia-Herzegovina has seen them climb 13 places to 29th.

Martin O'Neill will be hoping they can maintain their winning run when they host Switzerland and Slovakia at the Aviva Stadium later this month.

Northern Ireland are just one place ahead in 28th, while England remain ninth with Wales 17th and Scotland up one spot to 45th.
