FIJI remains on 188th position in the latest FIFA world rankings. The national side is in sixth position in the Oceania region and has not played any international matches since the Oceania Nations Cup in the Solomon Islands and the friendlies against the Fair Play Brazil team in 2012.

New Zealand remains the top ranked nation in the region with a world ranking of 101 followed by New Caledonia 136, Tahiti 171, the Solomon Islands 175 and Vanuatu 187.

Juan Carlos Buzzetti and Imdad Ali have been tasked to build the national team for the Pacific Games in Papua New Guinea next year with the gold medal being the top priority.

Fiji's best ever rankings was 94, in July 1994.

Meanwhile four-time world champions Germany is reaping the rewards of their triumph at the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil.

Germany lead the rankings table for the first time in 20 years and is followed by Argentina, the Netherlands, Colombia and Belgium rounding up the top five.
