The FIFA/Coca-Cola World Rankings looks at each country’s international results from the last four years. The ranking takes into account the result, the importance of the match, the strength of the opponent, the regional strength, the time period, and the number of matches per year.



No new Canadian matches were counted towards this ranking, so Canada’s 24 May match against Argentina and 29 match against Venezuela will both be counted towards the next ranking on 14 July. Within CONCACAF, Canada trails USA, Mexico, Honduras and Costa Rica.



As for the overall world ranking, the only switch was France moving into 9th place ahead of Croatia. The top-10 world ranking features Brazil, Spain, Portugal, Netherlands, Italy, Germany, Argentina, England, France and Croatia.
