Following the completion of the Champions Trophy in Melbourne (AUS), the International Hockey Federation (FIH) has released the updated FIH Men’s World Rankings table.
The top four positions in the table remain unchanged, with London 2012 Olympic Gold medallists Germany still holding the number 1 spot followed by Champions Trophy winners Australia (2nd), Olympic & Champions Trophy Silver medallists The Netherlands (3rd) and England (4th).
Success in the Champions Trophy for the Kookaburras has seen them slightly narrow the gap between themselves and Germany, while recent strong performances from the Dutch have seen them increase their advantage over England.
Thanks to their brilliant Bronze medal at the Champions Trophy, Pakistan are the most improved nation in the top ten having leapt from 9th place to 5th. New Zealand continue to hold 6th place ahead of Spain (7th), Champions Challenge finalists Korea (8th), Belgium (9th) and Champions Challenge winners Argentina (10th).
