Brazil remains in first place in year's first world soccer rankings

Brazil is still in first place in FIFA's world soccer rankings, with only one change in the top 10 of the list that was released Wednesday.

With no games involving soccer's leading countries since the final 2006 rankings, Brazil remains at No. 1 with 1,588 points 28 more than World Cup champion Italy.

Argentina is third and France is fourth, with Germany moving up one place to fifth, swapping places with England because of a recalculation of old results.

The Netherlands is seventh, followed by Portugal, Nigeria and the Czech Republic.

The biggest mover in the top 25 was Egypt, which moved up eight places to 19th. Also, Denmark dropped two places to 23rd and Russia moved back two places to 24th, reports AP.

The United States remained in 31st place with 792 points.

January's rankings included all 207 of FIFA's member associations for the first time.
