FIFA world rankings: Colombia overtakes DFB team, Brazil slips down

The German national team is not making any progress in the FIFA World Ranking. There has been a change in the top three

2:3 against Turkey, 0:2 against Austria: With two questionable performances in November, the German national team not only failed to generate a spirit of optimism for the upcoming European Championship at home, but also failed to collect points for the FIFA World Ranking. It therefore comes as no surprise that national coach Julian Nagelsmann’s squad is not getting off the mark.

In the November edition of the rankings published on Thursday, Germany remain in 16th place, losing 12.27 points compared to the previous month. The Colombians overtook them, but because Switzerland also dropped from 14th to 18th place, at least the DFB team’s position did not change. After all, “only” eight European competitors are now better placed

World champions Argentina remain in first place, followed by France. The new third-placed team is England, led by Bayern striker Harry Kane, who knocked Brazil off the podium. The Selecao even slipped down to fifth place after poor performances in the South American World Cup qualifiers, with Belgium also moving past them. The top ten is completed by the Netherlands (6th, +1), Portugal (7th, -1), Spain (8th), Italy (9th) and Croatia (10th).

Comoros better than ever before

Uruguay moved up from 15th to eleventh place, while Tunisia (28th, +4), Ecuador (32nd, +4), Romania (43rd, +5) and Slovakia (45th, +5) also made up ground. The biggest winners in November, however, were the Comoros, who climbed nine places to become the 119th-ranked team in their history. The islanders beat the Central African Republic (4:2) and Ghana (1:0) at the start of the African World Cup qualifiers in November.

FIFA will publish the next update of the world rankings on December 21. However, as the ball will be resting in most associations until then, there are unlikely to be any major shifts then.
