Gareth Southgate says his ambition is for England to be ranked No 1 in the world.
His side looked a long way from that level during a laboured win over a Malta side who sit 171st in the standings at Wembley on Friday night.
However, the 2-0 victory meant England have won Euro 2024 qualifying Group C and are all but assured of a place in Pot 1 for the tournament draw next month.
Southgate is now calling on his side to raise their standards away to North Macedonia on Monday evening. It may be a dead rubber but the England boss wants to see consistent high-level performances for his team to be considered the best side on the planet.
"Qualification’s done," said Southgate, whose England team were ranked fourth in the latest edition of the FIFA standings.
