Despite it bad performance in the recent World Cup in Germany, Brazil continues the number one team in the ranking of FIFA, the International Football Federation.

FIFA has just released its list of the world’s 50 best soccer teams with Brazil still atop the standings while Mexico moved up to 16th in the world.

The top 15 places remain the same from last month, with Brazil number one followed by Italy, Argentina, France and England. The Netherlands is number six, followed by Spain, Portugal, Germany and the Czech Republic.
