FIFA rankings: Spain reigns again

FIFA’s world rankings show world champion Spain remaining at the top of the list, followed by Netherlands, Germany, Argentina, Brazil, England, Uruguay, Croatia, Portugal and Greece. While it’s fun to scan the full results, they should, as usual, be taken with a grain of salt. (Croatia and Greece in the top 10?) The United States is No. 19, down one slot this month, although favorable results in upcoming friendlies against Argentina and No. 24 Paraguay, a World Cup quarterfinalist, would boost the Americans’ standing.

The top-100 breakdown by confederations:


Africa 22


Asia 11

South America 10 (all)

Oceania 1
