Argentina remains atop the FIFA world rankings released Thursday, with Belgium climbing above Germany into second.

Mexico leads all CONCACAF teams in the rankings, using its Gold Cup victory to move up 14 spots to No. 21. Gold Cup runner-up Jamaica is the biggest mover — it's new ranking is 55, up 21 places.

The United States, which lost in the Gold Cup semifinals to Jamaica, is up five places to No. 29.

Chile — which beat Argentina in the Copa America final — moves back into the top 10 at the expense of the Netherlands, which drops seven places as points collected during the 2014 World Cup begin to lose their value.

The Netherlands' drop sees the majority of the top 10 jump up one place, other than Colombia, which remains in fourth.
