U.S. Soccer Team Moves Up in FIFA Rankings
The U.S. Men’s National Team has moved up one place to No. 13 in the latest FIFA rankings.
The Americans jump came after a comprehensive 2-0 victory over South Korea on February 1st. Their points calculation was also boosted by the clearance of last February’s loss to Honduras.
Spain, Germany and Argentina remained 1st, 2nd and 3rd in the rankings while Portugal leapfrogged Columbia to claim the 4th spot.
Switzerland moved up two spots to No. 6, Uruguay (7th) and Italy (8th) each dropped a place, and Brazil moved up to 9th while the Netherlands dropped one slot to 10th.
The most shocking drop-off in the rankings comes from the Americans’ first round opponent in Brazil 2014, Ghana, who fell 13 places to No. 37.
