​England rise to fifth in FIFA World Rankings (but look at Germany...)

England have now risen to fifth position in the FIFA World Rankings.

Belgium are ranked first, with France in second position.

Germany have fallen to 14th in the rankings, mostly due to their poor showing in the FIFA World Cup in Russia this summer.

Brazil are the only non-European team in the top five, sitting in third position.

England's rise can be attributed to an impressive win over Spain in the UEFA Nations League, with the Spaniards now in 9th position.
