the brazilian team led by Tite has increased its lead over Belgium at the head of the last Fifa world ranking prior to the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, in which Spain has lost sixth place to Italy.
The loss of a place by the team led by Luis Enrique, who in September lost to Switzerland (1-2) and defeated Portugal at the last moment (0-1), which allowed them to get into the Final Phase of the League of Nations, is the only variation among the top ten of the FIFA ranking.
Colombia, for its part, comes as a surprise to many, since It appears better than half of the teams that will be in the World Cup.

Fifa ranking updated
A total of 53 UEFA Nations League matches and 119 friendlies made up the program for the final international window before the Fifa World Cup Qatar 2022, which kicks off on 20 November.
Brazil will try to win its sixth world title from the top of the table.
La Canarinha, who came out on top in their friendlies with Ghana and Tunisia, increased their advantage over their closest rival, Belgium, who lost to the Netherlands (8th). Argentina, which maintains third place, completes the podium.
Apart from the top ten, Croatia moves from fifteenth to twelfth place and Iran rises to twentieth place, closely followed by Serbia (21st), which jumps four places.
However, the biggest gains are by non-World Cup teams, such as Scotland (40th) and Azerbaijan (123rd), who move up five places.
