FIFA Ranking: Belgium to take over #1 spot 最新国际足联排名:比利时荣登世界第一


Belgium will take over the No. 1 spot in the FIFA World Ranking in November following a 3-1 home win versus Israel on Tuesday.


The Belgians were third in the most recent ranking published at the start of the month, but with Germany losing in the Republic of Ireland and current No. 1 Argentina losing at home to Ecuador and drawing in Paraguay, the win against Israel put them in the top spot for the first time in their history.


The victory puts Belgium on 1,440 ranking points in the next ranking, which is released on Nov. 5, with Germany in second on 1,388 and Argentina falling to third on 1,383.

Belgium were as low as 66th in the ranking in 2009, so moving to the very top in the space of six years is a remarkable achievement.

The difference in ranking points was enough that if Belgium had lost at home to Israel they would have dropped out of the top three below Portugal into fourth.
