Ireland have dropped six places to 32nd in the latest FIFA Rankings.

The drop comes following Ireland's playoff defeat to Denmark this month. The result has seen the Danes rise seven places to 12th in the world.

Ireland have been dancing around a similar position for the last two years, reaching a high of 23rd last year. Looking at the rankings over the length of the O'Neill and Keane era, we are up from an all-time low of 67th just prior to the duo taking over.


Northern Ireland are down one place to 24th in the November rankings while Wales have dropped five places to 19th.

England have also dropped in the rankings, down three to 15th. Scotland are down three places to 32nd.

The top of the rankings remains unchanged with Germany, Brazil, Portugal, Argentina and Belgium filling out the top five.
