After months of stagnating, the U.S. men's national team is back on the rise in the FIFA rankings, although barely.
The United States improved one spot to No. 33 in the latest rankings after having spent the last three months at the No. 34 spot, which is now occupied by Peru. The Americans will get a chance to try and improve their standing when they take on Venezuela and Panama in friendlies later this month.
The top 10 teams stayed the same, with Spain sitting atop the rankings followed by the Netherlands, Germany, Uruguay, England, Brazil, Portugal, Croatia, Italy and Argentina.
Mexico remained the highest-ranked CONCACAF team at No. 21. Up two spots from last month, Panama is the third-best team from CONCACAF at 47. The fourth and fifth best-ranked CONCACAF nations are Honduras and Jamaica at 51 and 52, respectively.
