Brazil have returned to the top of the FIFA World Ranking after a one-month hiatus, replacing reigning FIFA World Cup™ champions Germany (2nd, down 1), who slipped back into second spot.

The FIFA rankings were released earlier today and India have dropped a place from their July ranking of 96. Coached by Stephen Constantine, the Indian football team had reached one of its highest spot (96) recently but slipped again since there was hardly any global match scheduled for it in the month of July.

National teams around the globe are now in the qualifying stage, battling for a place in the 2018 FIFA World Cup, while Russian Federation as the host nation has been already guaranteed a berth in the world's main quadrennial football event.

The Indian football slipped one spot from 96th position to 97th spot in the FIFA Rankings.

Canada, who were ranked 100 last month, have leapfrogged India to 95th in the rankings.

Among Asian countries, India are the 12th highest ranked team in the continent while Iran leads the chart at 24th position. India is slated to take part in the Champions Cup next where Mauritius and St. Kitts and Nevis are expected to take part.

South Korea and Saudi Arabia have risen two spots each to be 49th and 59th, respectively.

Brazil has moved ahead of Germany to claim the no. 1 slot. North African side Tunisia are 34th worldwide and fourth in the African rankings, while Cameroon moved up one spot to occupy the 35th place.
