Moving on down

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.
