ESPN FC’s Kay Murray and Steve Nicol run the rule over the latest FIFA men’s world rankings, where Belgium remain top of the pack and Gareth Southgate’s England lie in fourth. Nicol picks out France and Portugal, ranked second and fifth, respectively, as the two hottest sides in world football and praises Fernando Santos for building Portugal from a dogged defending side to an attacking force. The pair also discuss Germany’s drop to 14th from ninth, with Nicol comparing Germany to Argentina as a team that has forgotten how to dig out wins.
