The latest FIFA rankings are out, and the United States has dropped a spot.

The Americans swapped spots with France to move from 18th to 19th in the world. Over the last month, the United States had its scheduled friendly with Egypt cancelled, while France defeated Brazil.

Mexico remains as CONCACAF's second highest-ranked nation, maintaining its spot at No. 27. Honduras moved up a spot to 38 and Jamaica took a large step, climbing 11 places and into the top 50 at No. 48.

There was hardly any change in the top 10, as Spain, Netherlands and Germany remained the top three teams in the world, respectively. Argentina moved up to fourth and Brazil fell to fifth, followed by England, Uruguay, Croatia, Portugal and Greece.

What do you think about the rankings? Do they matter to you? Impressed with Jamaica's rise?
