England drop to 17th in world

12 September 2013 07:31

Roy Hodgson's England have dropped three places to 17th in the latest FIFA world rankings.

It is their lowest position since 2001 when they also occupied 17th place following a dismal run under Kevin Keegan that ended with the subsequent improvement under Sven-Goran Eriksson.

In August last year they climbed to an all-time high of third, although this exposed the rankings system to ridicule given their indifferent performance at the 2012 European Championships.
