Belgium have stayed at the top of the pile after starting their World Cup qualification campaign with two wins and a draw, notably smashing Belarus 8-0 despite mainly fielding a "B" team.

France also kicked off their World Cup qualificatipon campaign with seven points from their three games, but impressed less in tight wins over Kazakhstan and Bosnia-Herzegovina, while drawing with Ukraine.

However, those results were enough for Les Bleus to remain ahead of Brazil, whose South American World Cup qualifiers were postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Further down the top 10, Italy jumped up three spots to seventh after beating Northern Ireland, Bulgaria and Lithuania, all by a scoreline of 2-0, to secure a perfect start to their World Cup qualification campaign.

Meanwhile, Denmark climbed to 10th place after – similar to Italy – winning their first three qualifying games for Qatar 2022, including a massive 8-0 drubbing of Moldova.
