Belgium has edged ahead of world champion France at the top of FIFA's world rankings.
Roberto Martinez's side was beaten 1-0 by Didier Deschamps men in the semifinals of the 2018 World Cup but pulled alongside them as the joint-top ranked team according to world football's governing body last month.
Now, following a 2-1 win over Switzerland in the Nations League and a 1-1 friendly draw with neighbour Netherlands, the Red Devils have edged ahead of Les Bleus on 1733 ranking points to 1732.
France drew 2-2 with Iceland in a friendly and beat Germany 2-1 – matching Belgium's return from the October international break but against opponents ranked lower by FIFA.
England is up to fifth after its impressive 3-2 win against Spain, which remains ninth, while Netherlands' 3-0 victory over Germany lifted it two places to 15th.
That is directly below an out-of-sorts Die Mannschaft, who fall two spots to 14th.
Minnow Gibraltar is the biggest mover – up eight places to 190th after its first competitive wins over Armenia and Lichtenstein.
