In the latest FIFA World Football Rankings released on Wednesday, Jamaica’s national football team, the Reggae Boyz, celebrated a well-deserved climb, moving up one place and securing their position as the 55th best team in the world.
This follows the team’s stellar performance in the Nations League, where they emerged as group toppers and earned a spot in the quarter-finals.
Jamaica is the highest ranked football team in the Caribbean. Within the Confederation of North, Central America, and Caribbean Association Football (Concacaf), they hold the fifth spot.
The United States continues to lead Concacaf but currently holds the 11th position in the global rankings. Mexico, another perennial powerhouse in the region, follows closely at number 12 in the world rankings.
Panama has also shown significant improvement in its footballing endeavours, securing the third spot in the Concacaf region and claiming the 44th position on the global scale.
Meanwhile, Canada, despite its strong football tradition, has dropped to number four within Concacaf, now standing as the 45th best team in the world.
On the global stage, reigning world champions Argentina have further extended their lead, maintaining their position as the number one team in the world.
This places them ahead of the beaten World Cup finalists, France, who occupy the second spot, and Brazil, securing third place.
England follows closely in fourth place, leading the charge among European teams. Belgium, Portugal, The Netherlands, and Spain complete the top eight, reflecting the competitive nature of European football. European champions Italy and Croatia round out the top ten.
