England have moved up to fourth-place in FIFA’s latest world rankings following their impressive performances in March.

Gareth Southgate’s side won both of their Euro 2020 qualifiers in Group A by thrashing the Czech Republic 5-0 at Wembley before enjoying a 5-1 victory at Montenegro.

Therefore, England have displaced 2018 World Cup finalists Croatia in fourth-place in the latest FIFA world rankings poll.

The Three Lions will be back in action against the Netherlands on June 6, where they will be competing in Portugal during the inaugural UEFA Nations League finals.

And victory will surely be on their minds as England chase a first piece of major silverware since the 1966 World Cup.

Meanwhile, FIFA have kept Belgium on top of the rankings for a seventh consecutive month following their back-to-back wins over Russia and Cyprus in March during their own respective Euro 2020 qualifiers in Group I.

World champions France and Brazil complete the top-three, while Germany have moved up three spots into 13th.
