Brazil closing in on Argentina's top ranking

ZURICH, April 9 (Reuters) - Argentina remained top of the FIFA world rankings published on Wednesday but with just 10 points separating them from South American rivals Brazil.

A 2-0 friendly win over Egypt last month helped Argentina hold top spot for the seventh consecutive month but Brazil narrowed the gap with a 1-0 victory in their friendly game against higher-ranked Sweden.

There was no movement among the top seven sides but Greece secured their highest ranking, climbing above Portugal into eighth place after beating Luiz Felipe Scolari's men 2-1 last month.
