IRELAND HAVE FALLEN one place to 68th in the latest FIFA world rankings, which were released this morning.

Having begun the year in 67th, the Boys in Green remained in that position last month but a 2-1 defeat to Serbia in Dublin last week sees them drop below Jordan and Bulgaria.

The top five of Spain, Germany, Argentina, Portugal and Colombia are all unchanged while England are up three to 12th.

Scotland fall three places to 37th, Wales are up to 49th while Northern Ireland are 86th.
