Soccer: Italy hold on sixth place in world rankings

(ANSA) - Rome, August 8 - Italy held on to sixth place in FIFA's world rankings after they were updated on Wednesday. The Azzurri had climbed from 12th to sixth in July after they reached the final of Euro 2012. World champions Spain, who thrashed the Azzurri 4-0 in the Euro 2012 final to retain their European crown, stayed top of the rankings. England, who Italy will face in a friendly next week after the Azzurri beat them on penalties on the quarterfinals of Euro 2012, moved up one place from fourth to enter the ranking's top three for the first time. Having slipped to their lowest ever position last month, five-time world champions Brazil fell two places further to 13th in the new rankings.
