Argentina lead FIFA’s latest rankings, Chile on rise


Zurich –

Copa America winners Chile have moved up two places to eighth in the FIFA rankings, led by Argentina.

Chile’s swap with No. 10 England is the only top-10 movement since no elite team played last month. The change in rankings reflects a decrease in the value of matches played since 2011.

Belgium beat out World Cup winners Germany for the No. 2 spot. Colombia and Brazil are in fourth and fifth place.

Wales are ninth and above neighbors England.

Algeria leads the African countries at number 19.

Mexico is CONCACAF’s best at No. 26, two ahead of the United States.

No.40 Iran leads Asia.

The next ranking will include two rounds of European Championship qualifying matches and World Cup qualifiers in Asia and CONCACAF.
