ZURICH -- Belgium rose to their highest-ever spot at No. 3 in the latest FIFA monthly rankings, which are still led by World Cup winner Germany.
Argentina are second while Belgium traded places with Colombia, who now sit fourth.
Brazil, who beat France in a friendly last month, rose to No. 5 and swapped places with Netherlands at No. 6.
Belgium survived a red card to captain Vincent Kompany as Marouane Fellaini's early goal was enough to beat Israel in their Euro 2016 qualifier in Jerusalem.
Fellaini finished well after Kompany's initial shot had been saved, with the Manchester City skipper sent off after the hour mark as he picked up a second yellow card for fouling Eran Zahavi.
That dismissal was a boost for Belgium's Group B rivals Wales, with Kompany now suspended for the game in Cardiff in June.
