England have ascended to third in the world rankings following the latest round of internationals.
Following their run to the final of Euro 2020, England returned to action in World Cup qualifying - and Gareth Southgate's side claimed 4-0 wins over Hungary and Andorra before a 1-1 draw with Poland.
The seven-point haul was enough to lift England to third in FIFA’s rankings, which is their highest position.
