Russia overtook Brazil in the new FIFA world rankings published Wednesday, which also saw Colombia end a decade-long absence from the top 10.

Five-time world champions Brazil slipped two places to 14th, with Russia moving up a slot to 12th on the back of World Cup qualifying wins over Northern Ireland and Israel.

World and European champions Spain retained top spot, followed by Germany and Portugal, who displaced England in third. Roy Hodgson's men fell two places to fifth, allowing Argentina into fourth.

Colombia are the biggest climbers of the month by points, hauling themselves up to ninth from 22nd due to defeats of Chile and Uruguay.
