“A total of 1082 full internationals were played in 2019, the biggest number since the FIFA/Coca-Cola World Ranking was introduced in 1993,” FIFA said.

“By contrast, just 352 matches took place in 2020. Not since 1987 (323 matches), have so few fixtures taken place in a calendar year.

“And while 2020 has certainly had major disruptions, Belgium still managed to claim the title of FIFA/Coca-Cola world Ranking Team of the Year for the third consecutive time.”

The ten top-ranked nations are: Belgium (1), France (2), Brazil (3), England (4), Portugal (5), Spain (6), Argentina (7), Uruguay (8), Mexico (9), Italy (10).
