Spain are the new world number one-ranked side after their victory at the European Championship but England have fallen six places to 15th - just one spot above Scotland.

The Spanish moved up three places to depose last month´s leaders Argentina after their victory over Germany in the final of Euro 2008 on Sunday.

England´s absence from the tournament denied them competitive action and as a result they fell outside the top 10 just a month after re-entering it.
