Wales' 2-1 win over Scotland last month has helped Chris Coleman's men up 22 spots in the World Football Rankings.

The team are now 49th, jumping ahead of Poland and Egypt despite their defeat to Croatia.

Scotland's loss saw them fall to 77th, whilst England slip to 7th, the Republic of Ireland rise to 39th and Northern Ireland fell to 119th.

The top three of Spain, Germany and Argentina remain unchanged.
