The Mexican national team received a major boost in the latest FIFA World Rankings, moving up 11 spots to No. 9 in the world on the strength of its Gold Cup triumph last week.

The United States slipped two places to 24th, behind the likes of Montenegro and Turkey, which both moved passed the Americans in the most recent rankings, released today.

The biggest beneficiary from the Gold Cup was Jamaica, which skyrocketed 17 places to 38th overall. Panama also enjoyed a steep jump, climbing 15 places to No. 52.

Spain and the Netherlands remained the top two teams in the world rankings, with Brazil slipping to fifth.
