While Germany is positioned at the top of the ranking with 1533 points, Brazil secured the 2nd position.

"For two years we have been talking about a Club World Cup with 24 teams, more inclusive and with more respect for the global calendar, with fewer games", Infantino told reporters at the South American Football Confederation (CONMEBOL) annual conference.

March saw a busy month in worldwide football, with a total of 133 games played across the globe, creating much movement in the latest FIFA/Coca-Cola World Ranking.

The latest drop marks a significant downturn for the Russian Federation team, which ranked an average 22nd place since the creation of FIFA's ranking in December 1992. DR Congo comes third but at position 38 in the world with 711 points.

However, Infantino believes the implementation of VAR, rubber-stamped by the Federation Internationale de Football Association council last month, was a necessary measure as the governing body looks to give its match officials every assistance in making correct decisions.

The ranking comes after Kenya registered checkered results in the recent worldwide games, where Harambee Stars drew 2-2 against Comoros before slumping 3-2 against Central African Republic in Morocoo.
