The recent draw with Argentina and loss to Paraguay did not help the United States in the latest FIFA world rankings, as the results have dropped the national team from 19 down to 22.
Mexico, after its victory over Paraguay and draw with Venezuela, is up a spot to 26, closing the gap between the top two CONCACAF nations as the Gold Cup approaches.
There was minimal change in the top 10, as World Cup finalists Spain and the Netherlands maintained their posts at Nos. 1 and 2, respectively. Brazil rose two spots to No. 3 , followed by Germany and Argentina. Italy returned to the top 10 for the first time in seven months, climbing from 11th to ninth and displacing Greece from the top 10 in the process.
The top 10 CONCACAF countries are the USA, Mexico, Honduras (43rd), Costa Rica (55th), Jamaica (64), Panama (68), Canada (75), Cuba (82), El Salvador (87) and Trinidad and Tobago (94).
