Rankings jump for Ireland


The Republic of Ireland have jumped 11 places in the latest FIFA world rankings on the back of their Euro 2012 play-off heroics.

Ireland defeated Bosnia-Herzegovina in last month's play-offs to book their place in next summer's finals in France and their success has seen them climb to 31st in the standings.

Having moved ahead of the likes of USA, Ghana, Sweden and Poland, Martin O'Neill's men are now just one place behind Northern Ireland.

Belgium top the rankings ahead of Argentina, while Germany have dropped to fourth behind Spain. Chile are fifth with Brazil sitting sixth and Portugal seventh.

England are ninth behind Colombia as Austria complete the top ten.

Wales had climbed to an all-time high of eighth in October but Chris Coleman's side are now down to 17th, a drop of two places since November, while Scotland have slipped eight places to 52nd.
