Croatia has moved into 15th in the world despite losing their last competitive match 0-1 away to Iceland in 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifying.

Germany has reclaimed the No.1 ranking two years after losing the top spot thanks to its victory at the recent FIFA Confederations Cup where they beat Chile 1-0 in the final.
