Ireland rise to 26 in latest Federation Internationale de Football Association rankings

Northern Ireland join the Republic of Ireland as an unseeded country in the draw, but have fallen to 23 in the latest standings.

"Peru have climbed into the top ten of the FIFA World Ranking for the first time in an edition shaped by the latest decisive FIFA World Cup qualifiers", the FIFA said in its statement on Monday.

Ireland have won three of eight play-off ties, with two of those wins coming at the last two attempts, against Estonia to go to Euro 2012 and Bosnia-Herzegovina to advance... Northern Ireland, Sweden and Republic of Ireland will look to change that by winning their playoffs, while Tunisia, Egypt, Senegal and Iran, DR Congo, Australia, Nigeria, Serbia and Japan could all land here, too. The Russian national team plunged in the newly-published monthly ratings edition of the world's governing body of football, FIFA, to 65th place, which is a new record-low position in the ratings history for the Russian squad. The order of fixtures will be determined by the draw.
