New Zealand remains in the top 100 with a ranking of 95 while Tahiti and New Caledonia are ranked 136 and 141.

Vanuatu maintains its fifth position and now moves to 156 placing from 168 while Solomon Islands moves to the sixth spot  with a ranking of 159 from 174 and has relegated Samoa to the 173rd spot.

Tonga is placed at the eighth position with a ranking of 174, American Samoa on 182, Guam on 184, Papua New Guinea on 186 and Cook Islands on 196

Meanwhile, European champions Spain remains number one while Germany sits on second spot and England on third.

2014 World Cup host Brazil failed to improve its ranking slumping to the 13th spot from its previous ranking of 11.
