On the world table, there was no change among the top 22 as Belgium, France, Brazil, England and Uruguay maintain their places from first to fifth in that order.

Croatia, Portugal, Spain, Argentina and Colombia continue in that order from sixth to 10th.

The next edition of the rankings will be published on April 9.
