Germany tops Federation Internationale de Football Association rankings despite loss to No. 2 Brazil

Germany tops Federation Internationale de Football Association rankings despite loss to No. 2 Brazil

Tunisia maintained their leading position over the continent but moved up nine places to occupy the 14th spot worldwide.

Federation Internationale de Football Association agreed in January previous year to expand the World Cup from its current 32 teams to 48 teams in 2026.

Adding further to the instability that already surrounds the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, FIFA have now been asked to hasten their plans for expanding the tournament to accommodate 48 teams instead of the current 32.

Kenya's downward spiral has been occasioned by the embarrassing outing last month that saw the country draw with Comoros before losing to Central African Republic (CAR).

Tunisia now holds the highest-ranking position among African nations, ahead of Senegal (14), DR Congo (38), Morocco (42), Egypt (46) and Nigeria (47).

World football governing body, FIFA is considering the expansion of the Club World Cup to accommodate national league champions all over the world. Saudi Arabia dropped one place to become 70th, just four spots below Russian Federation who dropped three places to 66th spot.

The Club World Cup is now being played by six club continental champions and the national champion of the host nation.

They are closely trailed by Brazil on the second spot while Belgium moved up two places to the third spot following the recent victories recorded.

Poland were the biggest losers amongst the top 10 ranked teams as they lost four places to drop down to 10th. Iran leads the Asian teams at No. 36.
