We're Better Than Brazil!

The England doom and gloom merchants have been out in force this week. Gary Neville has told the world how playing for England was "a waste of time" . . and the Fabio Capello bashers have thrown a few punches. But take a look at the facts, and in reality . we are BETTER THAN BRAZIL. Spain's reign as the world's number-one ranked team has come to an end, with Holland replacing them at the top of the latest FIFA chart. Having held the position for more than a year, a friendly loss to Italy means the world and European champions have been replaced by the Oranje, who become just the seventh team to head the rankings. Uruguay's Copa America success means they are now the top South American side in fifth, with Brazil dropping down to sixth. Germany remain in third and England move up to fourth, while the make-up of the top 10 remains the same, with Italy, Portugal, Argentina and Croatia the other sides.
