Germany down to 3rd in FIFA rankings; Argentina still No. 1, Mexico climbs with Gold Cup win


ZURICH(AP) _ World Cup winner Germany dropped to No. 3 in the latest FIFA rankings, with beaten finalist Argentina still at No. 1.

Germany trades places with new No. 2 Belgium as its World Cup results drop in value more than one year later.

The Netherlands fell seven places to No. 12, also because its third-place finish in Brazil counts for less in FIFA’s calculations over a four-year cycle.

Colombia stays at No. 4, and Brazil and Portugal each rise one to Nos. 5 and 6, respectively.

Copa America winner Chile climbs one to No. 10.

Mexico used its Gold Cup title to rise 14 places to No. 26. Runner-up Jamaica is up 21 to No. 55.

The United States, beaten by Jamaica in the semifinals, improves five places to No. 29.

Canada rises two places to 101st after posting two draws and a loss at the Gold Cup.
