U.S. drops one spot in FIFA rankings

ZURICH, Switzerland -- The United States dropped into a fifth-place tie in the May FIFA rankings, the last before the World Cup next month.

The same teams occupy the first 10 spots, with only minor adjustments in the rankings released Wednesday by soccer's world governing body.

Brazil, the Czech Republic and the Netherlands still top the list. Mexico moved up to fourth, with the Americans dropping into a fifth-place tie with Spain.

Portugal and France swapped spots. Portugal improved to seventh and France slipped to eighth.

Argentina remained No. 9 and England stayed in 10th.

The next FIFA rankings will be released on July 12, three days after the World Cup final.

FIFA is changing its calculation system for the new rankings, awarding points on matches over the last four years instead of the last eight.

The new rankings will also take into account the World Cup results.
