The United States Men’s National Team remained in 14th position in an unchanged Top 25 in the FIFA World Rankings.

The lack of international matches over the last month – only 18 friendlies were played across the globe – is the reason for the unchanged Top 25, which looks as follows:

1. Spain
2. Germany
3. Argentina
4. Colombia
5. Portugal
6. Uruguay
7. Italy
8. Switzerland
9. Netherlands
10. Brazil
11. Belgium
12. Greece
13. England
14. USA
15. Chile
16. Croatia
17. Côte d’Ivoire
18. Ukraine
19. Bosnia and Herzegovina
20. France
21. Mexico
22. Russia
23. Ecuador
24. Ghana
25. Denmark

One country that did see a big move in its status was Egypt, who rose 10 places to No. 31 as older results dropped in value in the four-year cycle of matches used for the calculations.

    These rankings are a joke, the US would get schooled by the 3 teams behind them…

      Do you mean, Chile, Croatia, and Ivory Coast? XD Yeah, right… The only team that’s better than the US is Croatia.

        The U.S. are better than Croatia who struggled to qualify for the WC.

    @bluemoonrises: The U.S. are a better team than the Ivory Coast.
