Belgium sixth in FIFA ranking

11:54 16/08/2013
Despite the scoreless draw against the French this week, the Red Devils are doing well in the FIFA rankings.

Closest competitors Portugal and the Netherlands also played a draw (1-1), while Brazil was beaten by Switzerland (1-0). This brings the Belgian national football team up to a virtual sixth place in the world ranking, although the official version of the ranking won't be published until September 12. The Red Devils' position in the list can be of great importantance if Belgium qualifies for the 2014 World Cup in Brazil, because for the 2010 World Cup FIFA used the ranking to determine the opening match sequence.
