Kenya drops as Belgium rises to second in FIFA rankings

04 June 2015, 13:39

Zurich - Kenya has dropped six places from position 117 to 123 in the latest edition of the FIFA rankings.

Belgium has risen above Argentina to No. 2 in the monthly FIFA rankings, which are still topped by World Cup winner Germany.

Belgium reached its highest-ever slot despite not playing in the last month. Past results for Argentina, which beat Belgium in the 2014 World Cup quarterfinals, devalued in a four-year cycle used for FIFA's calculations.

Colombia and Brazil stayed at Nos. 4 and 5.

France rose two places to No. 9 in a swap with new No. 11 Switzerland.

Costa Rica rose one to No. 14 and leads CONCACAF nations. The United States climbed one spot to No. 27.

Algeria leads Africa at No. 21. Iran is Asia's best at No. 41.

The July rankings will decide seedings for the 2018 World Cup qualifying draw on July 25 in St. Petersburg, Russia.
