The 2014 World Cup quarter-finalists beat both Italy and France in friendlies in 2015 but their mouthwatering clash with Spain November 17 was called off.

Argentina climbed back up to second after beating Colombia and drawing with Brazil in World Cup qualifiers in November while Spain climbed to third with a clinical 2-0 friendly defeat of England at Wembley.

Way down in 25th place are France, host of Euro 2016 and British bookies joint favourites with Germany to win the tournament. The bookies make Belgium fifth favourite to win the summer event.

1. Belgium

2. Argentina (+1 place)

3. Spain (+3)

4. Germany (-2)

5. Chile

6. Brazil (+2)
