ZURICH - Spain extended its stay atop the FIFA rankings on Wednesday as No. 3 Argentina strengthened its claim as South America's best team.

World Cup and European champion Spain leads Germany. Argentina, which beat Uruguay and Chile in World Cup qualifiers last month, trades places with Portugal, now No. 4.

Canada moves up one spot to No. 60 despite an 8-1 drubbing in Honduras that ended its World Cup qualifying bid. The Hondurans vault 10 places, moving past Canada into No. 56.

Elsewhere in CONCACAF, Mexico rose five to No. 14, and the U.S. climbed five to No. 27.

As for the rest of the top 10, Italy rises three places to No. 5, followed by England and the Netherlands. Colombia is No. 8, Russia rises three to No. 9 and Croatia completes the top 10.

Uruguay drops four to No. 11, and World Cup host Brazil is up one to No. 13 despite playing only friendlies.

Ivory Coast leads Africa at No. 15, and No. 24 Japan is Asia's best.
