The latest FIFA world rankings has been revealed and the top three remain unchanged with five-time World Cup winners Brazil leading Spain and Holland.

The South American country have won their past nine games under head coach Dunga and on Saturday face rivals Argentina in a World Cup qualifier.

Spain, winners of Euro 2008, have closed the gap under manager Vicente del Bosque though.

Meanwhile, Italy and Germany occupy joint fourth place with Russia in sixth and England in seventh. Fabio Capello’s side can qualify for the 2010 World Cup finals in South Africa if they beat Croatia at Wembley next week.

Argentina, Croatia and France make up the rest of the top ten while Australia occupy their highest ever ranking of 14th having lost just one of their eight games in 2009. The Socceroos have already qualified for the World Cup finals under manager Pim Verbeek.
