FIFA ranking reveals that Jamaica national football team, Reggae Boyz, remain the number one side in the Caribbean.

Jamaica remain the number one team in the Caribbean despite dropping 9-places to 55, according to the latest FIFA ranking.

They are followed by Trinidad and Tobago at 58 with St. Kitts and Nevis third at 80.

Mexico top the CONCACAF zone with USA second and Costa Rica third.

Argentina are world leaders followed by Belgium with Colombia and Germany third and fourth respectively.

The teams of the member nations of FIFA, football’s world governing body, are ranked based on their game results with the most successful teams being ranked highest.

The basic logic of these calculations is simple: any team that does well in world football wins points which enable it to climb the world ranking. A team’s total number of points over a four-year period is determined by adding the average number of points gained from matches during the past 12 months and the average number of points gained from matches older than 12 months (depreciates yearly).
