FIFA's latest rankings have been hard-hit by the coronavirus pandemic, with the suspension of all matches resulting in the global standings remaining unchanged from February's listing.

Belgium's reign as the world's leading footballing power has been extended even further following FIFA's latest rankings, with the Red Devils now having held top spot for 18 months, dating back to October 2018. 

Roberto Martinez's side is closely followed by 2018 FIFA World Cup winners France and record five-time World Cup winners Brazil, with both nations within touching distance of the Belgians' lead at the top.

England and Uruguay round out the top five, with 2018 World Cup runners-up Croatia and reigning European champions Portugal occupying the sixth and seventh positions, respectively, in the latest rankings. 

This list is completed by the inclusion of Spain, Argentina and Colombia, which means there is still no place in the top 10 for historic superpowers such as Italy, Netherlands and Germany, while South Africa remain 71st in the world.
