Fifa world rankings: England remain 20th after latest list released today
World Cup winners Germany stay on as the No 1 team
England remain the 20th best team in the world, according to the latest set of Fifa's rankings.
It was a World Cup campaign to forget for Roy Hodgson's side, who failed to progress from the group stage for the first time in the tournament since 1958, failing to win any of their games. They stay one place behind Bosnia and Herzegovina.
The World Cup winners Germany keep their place on top of the rankings, with the runners-up Argentina in second place.
There is little movement elsewhere in the top 20, except World Cup quarter-finalist Costa Rica rising above United States to be CONCACAF's highest-ranked team in the rankings.
Costa Rica climbs one place to No 15, and Mexico is at No 17 after also rising one place this month.
The US - which, like Mexico, exited the World Cup in the second round - fell three places to No 18.
Although none of the CONCACAF rivals played last month, the moves reflect changing values of past results in the four-year cycle of matches Fifa uses in its calculations. For the first time, the rankings weigh South America as the strongest confederation ahead of Uefa.
