It comes after Gareth Southgate’s side failed to win either of their matches during the March international break.

England were beaten 1-0 by Brazil before a late Jude Bellingham goal rescued a 2-2 draw against Belgium three days later.

Those results were enough for Belgium to leapfrog their opponents into third place.

The Red Devils had previously drawn with the Republic of Ireland earlier in the international break.

Belgium maintain their status as a top five nation, having not dropped below fifth since 2018.

Meanwhile, they have also spent three consecutive years top of the rankings during that time.

Their place amongst the elite did not go unnoticed by fans on social media, with one commenting: “Belgium might never win an international trophy but they are Fifa ranking goats.”

Another added: “Time for the monthly complaints about Belgium’s ranking.”

A third fan also joked: “Fifa was really impressed by Belgium’s draw in Dublin.”

Meanwhile, one more joked: “Get a girl who supports you as much as the Fifa rankings support Belgium.”

England had been third, their joint-highest ranking ever, since November before the latest changes.

Elsewhere, World Cup winners Argentina remain top of the rankings ahead of France, with Brazil completing the top five in fifth.

The only other change to the top 10 sees Portugal overtake the Netherlands to move into sixth place.
