Belgium is clearly leading in the FIFA World Rankings for September 2021. These results are calculated on the basis of the team’s game results with the most successful teams being ranked highest.
Generally, a specific point system is used to determine the rankings. Due to a lot of criticism, the system has been moderated several times. Therefore, a new ranking system used in Chess and Go is introduced on 16 August 2018.
Current calculation method:
Pbefore: the team’s number of points before the game
I: the importance coefficient
W: the result of the game
We: the expected result of the game
The European Qualifiers and the 2020 Tokyo Olympics led to a lot of changes in the FIFA World Rankings except for Belgium. Belgium still tops the list like the previous month. The rankings are almost similar to that of August 2021 except for the last two positions. Mexico climbs up at No. 9 of FIFA Rankings and the United States loses their 9th place and slips down to No. 10.
A decrease in the points is seen in countries like France, Spain, and Portugal. Whereas, Brazil, Italy, Argentina, Mexico, and the US saw a rise in numbers in their points.
The Gold medal for Brazil at the Olympics, helped the team to increase their points.
