Belgium had claimed an unprecedented second place on 4 June, but have only been able to keep it for a month. During this time, Belgium beat France 3-4 in Paris, but lost in Wales (1-0). The defeat in Wales (after a mistake in the Belgian defence) is costing them dear. Wales' excellent run in the World Cup preliminaries allowed them to move into the top-10, coming from 22nd place.
Argentina jump from 3 to 1, snatching the top position from Germany. Belgium's 3rd place is now threatened by Colombia, and even by the 5th-ranked Netherlands.
