The Irish Hockey team's recent successes haven't gone unnoticed after the latest World Rankings.

Graham Shaw's side have moved to 8th in the list, following their silver medal at the World Cup.

The Green Army went into the tournament ranked 16th, and have been rewarded for their eye-catching performance to the final, and it's the first time they've been ranked higher than 14th.

The team who beat Ireland in the decider, The Netherlands, have retained their position as the best team in the world.

The Dutch have held the top spot in the rankings since October 2011!
