Belgium’s Red Devils stay top of the FIFA rankings, marking 760 days leading the table.
Despite recently losing to England (2-1), the national team is still ahead of France, Brazil, England and Portugal in the updated table released on Thursday.
Following a draw in the friendly match against Ivory Coast (1-1) and the defeat three days later against England in the UEFA Nations League (2-1), Belgium returned to winning ways against Iceland (2-1) last week.
Switzerland, currently ranked 16, will be the next opponent for Belgium in a friendly scheduled for 11 November. It’s followed by another game at home against England on 15 November in the UEFA Nations League, and finally the last game of the year against Denmark on 18 November.
The Red Devils have been leading the FIFA rankings since September 2018. Only three nations have managed to keep this position longer than Belgium: Brazil (4699 days), Spain (1959) and Germany (1148).
