Belgium have stretched their lead at the top of FIFA World ranking in the latest edition released on Thursday for the month of June.

The Red Devils extended their lead following their UEFA EURO qualifying wins over Kazakhstan and Scotland, and lead second-placed and world champions France. 

Portugal, fresh from winning the UEFA Nations League have moved into the top five, while the Netherlands, who reached the final of the same competition have moved two spots up. 

A trio of former world champions are also on the rise on the back of positive results in the EURO qualifiers, with Spain moving two places high on the ladder to seventh. 

Germany have also moved two spots up to hold the 11th spot, while Italy are currently on 14th having gone three places up.

Senegal have a reason to smile after the lions of Teranka (22nd, up 1) reached their highest position to date.
