FIFA Rankings: Azzurri on the slide

Italy have been leapfrogged at the top of FIFA’s World Rankings by Brazil and Argentina following South America's Copa America tournament.

Carlos Dunga’s Selecao now sit in pole position after triumphing over rivals Argentina in the Final, and the Albicelestes also overtake the Azzurri who are pushed into third place.

The World champions, who have not played since the last rankings were published by FIFA, had led the rankings since February 2007 following last summer's triumph in Germany.

July 2007 (points):
Brazil (1500)
[2] Argentina (1476)
[3] Italy (1368)
[4] France (1357)
[5] Germany (1311)
[6] Netherlands (1195)
[7] Croatia (1192)
[8] Portugal (1146)
[9] Spain (1144)
[10] Mexico (1142)
