Jamaica has climbed up two places to 54th in the latest release of the FIFA Coca Cola World rankings.
This despite the Reggae Boys being inactive since securing the historic scoreless draw away to Mexico at the Azteca Stadium in the first round of the CONCACAF Hexagonal. Holding down the number 54 spots means the Reggae Boys are the second highest ranked team in the Caribbean region behind Haiti who are ranked three places higher at 51.
Trinidad and Tobago moving up 8 places to 69 is the third ranked Caribbean side ahead of Caribbean champions Cuba who moved up 9 places to 78.
Jamaica in the meantime is ranked 7th in the CONCACAF behind Mexico 15, the United States 33, Panama 41, Honduras 49, Haiti 51 and Costa Rica 53.
This means that the Jamaicans are currently the lowest ranked side in the CONCACAF Finals of the FIFA World Cup qualifying tournament.
On a wider scale, Spain continues to dominate the rankings at number one ahead of Germany, Argentina, England and Italy completing the top five.
Colombia, Portugal, Netherlands, Croatia and Russia are the other members of the top 10.
Five times world champions Brazil continue to linger outside the top 10 after continuing to hold down the number 18 spot.
