ZURICH (AP) – Portugal rises to No. 3 in the latest FIFA rankings and fourth-ranked Colombia now leads the South American nations.

World and European champion Spain remains top, ahead of Germany. Uruguay rises one place to No. 5.

World Cup host Brazil is tied for No. 6 with traditional rival Argentina, which drops three places.

Though no top team played last month, the rankings movement is caused by earlier results in a four-year cycle of matches having less value.

Switzerland, Italy and Greece, rising three places, complete the top 10.

United States rises to No. 13 after drawing 2-2 with No. 19 Mexico.

Ivory Coast, at No. 21, leads the African nations. Iran is the highest-ranked Asian confederation team at No. 37.

Australia at No. 59 is the lowest-ranked World Cup team.
