Spain remains top of the FIFA Ranking following its 2-1 international friendly win over Puerto Rico back in August. Germany is still ranked second, while England remains in third position.

The United States has moved up three spots to 33rd place.

Meanwhile, Mexico (21st, down three) has fallen below 20th for the first time since March, whereas Canada has jumped six places to 73rd.

The top 10 has seen only one change, with Portugal climbing to fourth position at the expense of Uruguay, which is now sitting fifth.

Among the biggest risers in the top 50 are Slovenia (up nine), Belgium (up 13) and Austria  (up 11).

Bermuda is the biggest mover by ranks this month as it has climbed 18 places to 102nd position. Lithuania on the other hand had a bad month as it has dropped 31 ranks.
