The Netherlands leads the latest FIFA rankings, ending Spain's 13-month reign at the top.
The Dutch are No. 1 for the first time despite not playing last month, while Spain lost in a friendly to new No. 7 Italy.
Germany is No. 3 and England rises two places to No. 4 after also not playing. Its friendly against the Netherlands was canceled due to riots in London.
The rankings take results across four years into account.
