Zurich - The top 13 positions in the FIFA World Rankings stayed the same, with 2010 World Cup Champions Spain staying in the top spot.

Runners up Netherlands is second, followed by Brazil, Germany and Argentina.

The United States fell five spots to 18th, although it remains CONCACAF's top team. The confederation's next best club, Mexico, also fell one spot to 25th.

Those drops were because of previous results that dropped in value.

Canada also fell one spot to drop out of the top 100 to 101st.

There should be more movement in the September rankings, with a number of friendlies and qualifiers scheduled.
