The U.S. men’s national team moved just outside of the Top 10 in the first FIFA Rankings following the conclusion of the 2023-24 CONCACAF Nations League.
The Americans rose to No. 11 after winning their third-consecutive Nations League title in March, FIFA announced Thursday. Gregg Berhalter’s squad defeated Jamaica 3-1 in semifinal play before shutting over rivals Mexico 2-0 in the tournament final.
Haji Wright netted two goals in the extra time semifinal triumph over the Reggae Boyz while Gio Reyna registered two assists. Tyler Adams delivered the winning goal against El Tri before Reyna capped off the shutout win with his first goal of the final four.
Despite losing in the tournament final, Mexico moved up three spots to No. 14. Panama, Canada, Costa Rica, and Jamaica rounded out the top six teams in CONCACAF.
2022 FIFA World Cup winners Argentina remained in the No. 1 spot while runners-up France stayed in the No. 2 place. Belgium and England flipped spots in the top four while Brazil ranked No. 5.
Portugal, Netherlands, Spain, Italy and Croatia rounded out the Top 10 overall.
The USMNT’s 2024 schedule continues this June with a pair of home friendlies against Brazil and Colombia respectively.
