This Thursday, FIFA will unveil its latest ranking for the year 2023. One year after its coronation in the final of the 2022 World Cup, Argentina will spend the holidays warm, firmly established in first place. Behind, France remains in ambush and occupies the second step of the podium. For its part, England completes the top three and remains in third place while Belgium, fourth, and Brazil, fifth, are in a tight spot.
