There was no movement within the top 25 as FIFA released the first World Rankings in 2014.
The U.S. Men’s National Team remained at No. 14 for the second consecutive month with 1,019 points. The biggest movers in the top 100 were Egypt (up 10 places to No. 31) and Saudi Arabia (up 14 places to No. 73), which took advantage of the devaluation of older matches to jump higher in the rankings.
The top five in the world remains Spain in first followed by Germany, Argentina, Colombia, and Portugal. Upcoming World Cup hosts Brazil are in 10th place. In CONCACAF, Mexico remains at No. 21, Costa Rica dropped one place to No. 32, and Panama moved up two places to No. 36.
What do you think of this news? Do you expect any movement in the top 25 by February? Do you feel the USMNT is the 14th best soccer nation in the world?
