Five-time World Cup winners Brazil have fallen to 19th in the Fifa world rankings, their lowest ever position.

Brazil are hosting the 2014 World Cup but a lack of competitive matches has seen them drop to their worst placing since the rankings began in 1993.

England are seventh, the Republic of Ireland are 39th, Wales move up 22 places to 49th, while Scotland are 77th and Northern Ireland are 119th.

Spain remain top of the rankings, ahead of Germany, Argentina and Croatia.

Brazil, who won the World Cup in 1958, 1962, 1970, 1994 and 2002, were ranked as the best team in the world as recently as May 2010, but are now below Greece (13th), Switzerland (15th) and Belgium (16th).

England's 1-1 draw in Montenegro has seen them fall from fourth last month to seventh, with Portugal (fifth), Colombia (sixth), Italy (eighth), the Netherlands (ninth) and Ecuador (10th) making up the rest of the top 10.

England are 4th not 7th.

I saw on bskyb the rankings yesterday.

As for Brasil, they are not like the teams of the past, the 70's and 80's teams.

Brasil are 8th on their ranking.

Apparently BBC has them correct as of 11th April 2013

Fifa also agrees with BBC
