Wales have reached their highest ever position in the FIFA world rankings by climbing 15 places to 22.

Chris Coleman’s side were the biggest movers – 153 points – in the April rankings after beating Israel 3-0 in their Euro 2016 qualifier in Haifa and have surpassed the 27th spot achieved by Terry Yorath’s side back in 1993.

England have climbed three places to 14 after beating Lithuania in Euro 2016 qualifying and drawing a friendly in Italy last month, while Scotland are up 10 spots to 29.

Northern Ireland are up one to 42 and the Republic of Ireland have climbed four places to 62.

Germany still lead the way from Argentina but Belgium have moved into the top three for the first time above Colombia with Brazil fifth and Holland sixth.
