The United States men’s national team’s time in FIFA’s top 10 has come to an end as they have dropped down three spots to 13th, according to the latest rankings released on Thursday.

It was just last month when the team surged their way to the tenth spot in the rankings following a summer in which they won both the CONCACAF Nations League and Gold Cup. However, a slow start to their World Cup qualifying campaign, which saw them draw games against El Salvador and Canada followed by a victory over Honduras, led to a slight fall in the rankings.

As for other CONCACAF teams, cross-border rivals Mexico is ranked ninth, while Costa Rica is 44th. Both Canada and Panama moved up the rankings to the 51st and 68th spots respectively.
