England have slipped one place to sixth in the latest FIFA rankings following their friendly defeat to Holland.

The 3-2 loss means the Three Lions now fall behind Brazil in the list, although they do remain the fourth highest European nation, behind leaders Spain, Holland and Germany, who have swapped places.

They are just 15 ranking points ahead of Portugal though, whilst Euro 2012 group rivals France and Sweden have both moved up one place to 16th and 17th respectively, with Ukraine trailing in 49th spot.
