COSTA RICA NEWS  (SPORTS) – Costa Rica has risen above the United States to be CONCACAF’s highest-ranked team in the latest FIFA rankings.

Although none of the CONCACAF rivals played last month, the moves reflect changing values of past results in the four-year cycle of matches FIFA uses in its calculations. For the first time, the rankings weigh South America as the strongest confederation ahead of UEFA.

World Cup winner Germany stays No. 1 ahead of Argentina and the Netherlands.

Former champion Spain is tied with Brazil for seventh place.
