World champions Germany stay No. 1, followed by Brazil and Belgium.

Poland lost to Nigeria 0-1 and defeated South Korea 3-2 in two pre-World Cup friendlies on home turf in March.

Last year Poland climbed to No. 5 in the FIFA table -- the best result for the Polish team since the world football governing body’s ranking was launched in 1992.

Poland's lowest place was 78th, in 2013.

The ranking factors in the final score of games played over the past four years, and whether the match was friendly or competitive, the rank of the opponent and other variables.

Poland have booked their place at this year’s World Cup in Russia and will play two more friendly matches at home ahead of the championships. They will face off against Chile in the western city of Poznań on June 8 and play Lithuania at the National Stadium in Warsaw on June 12.

The World Cup kicks off on June 14 and runs until July 15. Poland take on Senegal, Colombia and Japan in the group stage of the tournament.

Colombia is in 16th place in the latest FIFA ranking. Senegal is 28th, and Japan ranks No. 60.
