The U.S. men’s national soccer team has surpassed Mexico in FIFA’s world rankings.
The ascent makes the USA team the highest ranking of the world soccer body’s Concacaf (North, Central American and Caribbean) nations section in the qualifying rounds for the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar.
USA is now ranked 12th in FIFA’s ranking, while Mexico is in 14th position.
USA’s rise above Mexico is the first time the team has ranked above Mexico since July 2015.
Mexico had briefly been in the top 10 before dropping five spots to No. 14 following the two losses.
