ZURICH (AP) - Brazil is back on top of the FIFA rankings , replacing World Cup holder Germany.

Brazil hasn’t played a game since June, while Germany was last in action a month ago when it beat Chile to collect the Confederations Cup in Russia. The FIFA rankings are based on results over a four-year period.

Argentina retained third place, Switzerland rose to fourth - its highest position since the first rankings 24 years go - and Poland moved into an all-time best fifth.

The United States climbed nine places to 26th after winning the CONCACAF Gold Cup last month.
