England fans have branded FIFA World Rankings as a joke after it named the Three Lions as the fourth best team in the world.

The ranking took fans by surprise after FIFA football chiefs found Spain, Germany and Uruguay the only better teams than England, and shockingly put five-time World Cup winners Brazil seven places behind England in 11th position.

The decision left fans gobsmacked and most of them mocked it on Twitter.

"Do you get the feeling someone at Fifa is having a giggle?" the Daily Star quoted Loyal England fan Stuart Bresnan, from Manchester, as tweeting.

Another fan Mark Ryan, a Londoner said, "England are fourth in World Rankings. What is their criteria? Because it certainly can't be football!"

Italy, who dominated Roy Hodgson's men and knocked Wayne Rooney and his team-mates out of the competition on penalties had an impressive tournament and reached the final, but were only rated sixth behind semi-finalists Portugal, who lost out to eventual winners and current world No 1 Spain. (ANI)
