Germany replace Brazil at top of latest FIFA world rankings

Following a series of powerful displays in FIFA World Cup qualifying, Germany have replaced Brazil at the top of the latest international football world rankings, released by world football’s governing body this week.

Based on the recent round of FIFA World Cup qualifiers, Germany have climbed from second to top spot in the global standings, usurping the Selecao in the process.

As well as winning the FIFA Confederations Cup this past summer, Joachim Löw’s side have steamrollered their way through qualification for next year’s FIFA World Cup in Russia, recently beating the Czech Republic 2-1 in Prague and Norway 6-0 in Stuttgart.
