The U.S. Men’s National Team haven’t played a match in five weeks, but that didn’t stop them from slipping yet again in the FIFA World Rankings.
The latest rankings have the Americans dropping to 33rd, falling a spot behind Romania in the latest chart.
The relative lack of matches over the past month meant little movement in the rankings, with only Japan moving up more than one place in the latest rankings among teams in the Top 30.
The Top Five remain unchanged, with Spain still on top and Germany second, while Argentina sits in third. Colombia moved into sole possession of sixth place after Portugal dropped to seventh.
Honduras cracked the Top 50, moving up two places to No. 49, while Mexico stood firm at No. 15. The U.S. team’s next opponent, Costa Rica, held steady at No. 53.
