FIFA World Cup Rankings: Brazil is ranked first, ahead of Belgium, Argentina, France, and England

The most current rankings, the last to be released before the World Cup which will kick-off in November, took into account all 53 Nations League games as well as 119 friendlies played during the most recent international break. The next update is scheduled to be released on December 22.

The top five countries remained unchanged from the August rankings, with Belgium taking second place behind Argentina, France, and England.

After defeating the Three Lions 1-0 at the San Siro in the Nations League last month, Italy (ranked No. 6) reduced the distance on Gareth Southgate’s team despite missing out on the competition.

Wales kept its No. 19 position after falling from its August World Ranking total after being demoted from its Nations League Group A4 following losses to Belgium and Poland (No 26).

Along with the USA (No. 16) and Iran (20), England and Wales will compete in Group B at the World Cup, making Southgate’s team the top-ranked team among the group contenders. The other competitors are all of comparable caliber, according to FIFA’s benchmarks.

Success in Group B would guarantee a Round of 16 meeting with the winners or runners-up in Group A, which consists of the Netherlands (No. 8), Senegal (No. 18), Ecuador (No. 44), and Qatar (No 50).

The winners of Group D will face the runners-up of Group D which features top-ranked teams like Argentina (No. 3), France (No. 4) and Denmark (No. 10).

In Fifa’s most recent rankings, released on Thursday, October 6, Qatar will be the 50th-place World Cup host in 2022. After losing 3-0 to Croatia’s Under-23s, the Maroon dropped two spots from the previous standings published on August 25. They went from 1441.97 points to 1439.89.

The senior national teams of FIFA member countries compete in the FIFA World Cup, an international men’s football competition, every four years. The competition’s 22nd iteration is expected to take place in 2022. Qatar is designated as the location for it from November 20 to December 18, 2022.

This will be the first World Cup ever to be played in the Arab world and the second World Cup entirely staged in Asia after the competition in South Korea and Japan in 2002.

Additionally, the tournament will include 32 teams for the final time; the tournament in the United States, Mexico, and Canada in 2026 will have 48 teams instead.

This World Cup will be the first to not be hosted in May, June, or July and to take place in the northern autumn; it will be played in a shorter timeframe of roughly 29 days due to the extreme summer heat in Qatar. The tournament will take place from late November to mid-December.

The tournament’s opening match will be played between Qatar and Ecuador at Al Bayt Stadium in Al Khor. The final is scheduled for December 18, 2022, which also happens to be Qatar National Day. The current World Cup champion is France.
