Ireland Drop 8 Places In Latest FIFA World Rankings

In yet another bit of good news for Irish sports fans, our soccer team have dropped eight places in the latest FIFA World Rankings.

Having reached the heady heights of 23rd in 2016, we have since dropped to 36th, just behind Nigeria and Northern Ireland.

Belgium hold their place as the number one ranked team in the world, with France, Brazil and England behind them in an unchanged top four. Uruguay climb to 5th, while our recent rivals Switzerland and Denmark are 13th and 14th respectively.

On the bright side, at least we're not Mauritius, who have dropped the most of any team in the latest rankings after falling 12 places to 173rd.
