FIFA rankings: Spain remains No. 1, USA 22nd

There was barely any movement among the top 25 teams in the new FIFA rankings, which means the No. 22 United States will face the top-ranked nation in the world, Spain, on June 4 at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Mass.

In the CONCACAF Gold Cup, the Americans will play group matches against No. 76 Canada, No. 67 Panama and Guadeloupe, which, as an overseas department of the French government, is not a FIFA member and ineligible for the rankings.

The top 10:

1. Spain

2. Netherlands

3. Brazil

4. Germany

5. Argentina

6. England

7. Uruguay

8. Portugal

9. Italy

10. Croatia
