ZURICH (AP) - World and European champion Spain remains No. 1 in an unchanged top 25 in the FIFA world rankings after a month in which only 18 international friendlies were played.

Egypt made the biggest move, rising 10 places to No. 31 as older results dropped in value in the four-year cycle of matches used for the calculations.

World Cup host Brazil is 10th, with the United States in 14th. Mexico ranks second among CONCACAF teams, coming in at 21st overall, while the USA's first World Cup opponent, Ghana, ranks 24th.
