September's FIFA World Rankings

Last updated : 18 September 2020 By Three Lions

Belgium remain the best team in the world according to the FIFA rankings after the first international football in six months was played in September, almost exclusively across Europe.

The Red Devils eased to victory in their opening two Nations League matches with Roberto Martinez's side showing just why they are considered favourites to win the delayed European Championships next summer.

Ahead of their meeting with England in October, Belgium eased past Denmark before hammering Iceland at home.

That win was achieved with Eden Hazard on the substitiute's bench and no Romelu Lukaku, Martinez still able to call on quality players such as Kevin De Bruyne and Dries Mertens in attacking areas.

And the six points also helped keep them at the top of the FIFA rankings ahead of France, Brazil, the Three Lions and Portugal.

The eyes of the rest of the world are now on the resumption of World Cup 2022 qualifiers with South America's delayed campaign now set to get underway in October with both Argentina and Brazil taking their first steps on what they hope will be the road to Qatar.
