International football resumed early in September, with Europe's UEFA Nations League playing out two match rounds.

With 54 UNL games taking place, those fixtures had an immediate impact on the ranking, with defending champions Portugal climbing two spots to fifth place thanks to their victories over Croatia and Sweden.

Spain also jumped up a spot to seventh following their draw with Germany and comfortable 4-0 win over Ukraine.

Croatia and Uruguay dropped ranks among the top 10, while the likes of Italy (13), Netherlands (14) and Germany (15) all closed in on a return to the top bracket.

With no CAF games being played since the break in football, Senegal remains Africa's strongest nation in position 20, and Bafana Bafana stayed unmoved in 71st spot.

With Belgium in first position, you can see the complete top 10 in the gallery above!
