Champs France go top in Fifa rankings

World champions France predictably shot to the top of the Fife rankings published on Thursday while previous leaders Germany slumped to 15th after their humiliating first-round exit in Russia. The rankings were the first to be issued since France beat Croatia 4-2 in the World Cup final on July 15 and also the first since Fife replaced its much-criticized previous formula. France was followed by Belgium, the team they beat 1-0 in the semi-finals, with Brazil dropping one place to third after their quarter-final exit against the Belgians. Surprise finalists Croatia leap from 20th to fourth. quarter-finalists Uruguay climbed nine places to fifth while England’s run to the semi-finals took hem up to sixth place from a previous twelfth. Argentina dropped to 11th after a chaotic campaign, which included a 3-0 group stage defeat by Croatia on the way to last 16 exit against France where they lost 4-3.
