Belgium receives the FIFA Team of the Year crown for finishing top of the world rankings two Decembers in a row.
Roberto Martinez‘s side will end 2019 at the top position. After winning all 10 of their international ‘A’ matches this year to secure qualification for Euro 2020.
World champions France complete the year in second place, while Brazil third, England fourth, and Uruguay fifth.
Then, World Cup runners-up Croatia and Nations League Finals winners Portugal joins Spain, Argentina, and Colombia in the top 10.
The Mover of the Year honor goes to Qatar, who gained 138 rankings points over the path of 2019.
The World Cup 2022 hosts won the Asian Cup in February as they rose above 38 places up the scales. Which became the biggest jump record ahead of Algeria up by 32 and Japan 22.
The domination of Europe in the top 50 reduces this year. UEFA nations make up 28 of the top 50 teams, below three of last year. While CONCACAF, AFC, and CAF have each reached one place each.
The first FIFA rankings of the new decade will, however, be released on February 20.
