    Here are the Top 10 in CONCACAF in the August 2017 FIFA Rankings:

    14. Mexico (up 2)
    21. Costa Rica (up 5)
    26. USA (up 9)
    55. Haiti (down 6)
    57. Jamaica (up 19 with the most points gained and spots gained in the world)
    61. Panama (down 9)
    75. Honduras (down 3)
    83. Trinidad and Tobago (down 5)

    The teams ranked 11th through 35th in CONCACAF who moved at least 5 spots were Barbados (up 13 to 168th), St. Vincent and the Grenadines (up 10 to 169th), and Cuba (down 18 to 182nd).

    Here are the Top 10 in CONCACAF in the September 2017 FIFA Rankings:

    14. Mexico (even)
    21. Costa Rica (even)
    28. USA (down 2)
    48. Haiti (up 7)
    60. Panama (up 1)

    74. Honduras (up 1)
    86. Curacao (even)
    96. Canada (down 1)
    99. El Salvador (up 4)

    Guatemala lost the most spots in the world. They're 16th in CONCACAF and 131rd in the world. Outside of the Top 10 and Guatemala, two countries moved at least 10 spots. Trinidad and Tobago fell 16 to 99th and St. Kitts and Nevis was up 11 to 114th. Trinidad and Tobago has their third worst ranking ever and their worst ranking since their worst-ever rank of 106th in October 2010.

    I was expecting the FIFA Rankings to be released on Thursday like they usually are, but they were released today to be used for tomorrow's UEFA WCQ playoff draw. Panama has their best ranking since they were 33rd in July 2014, and they fell to 63rd in August 2014. Antigua and Barbuda is down 19 spots to 136th, which is their worst ranking since August 2014. The 35 teams had a combined gain of 13 spots, with 18 moving up, 8 (including the bottom 7) remaining the same, and 9 falling.

    16. Mexico (even)
    24. USA (even)
    26. Costa Rica (even)
    54. Jamaica (even)

    The 35 CONCACAF teams combined were down 30. The biggest movers were Nicaragua down 13 spots to 119th and Cuba down 10 spots to 180th. Cuba was in the top six in CONCACAF in the draw for World Cup 2014 qualifying and is now 27th in CONCACAF. There weren't many changes because there weren't many games.

    17. Mexico (even)
    24. USA (up 1)

    89. El Salvador (up 1)
    89. Canada (up 6)

    Canada is 11th when you use exact value, but the rankings are done based on rounding to the nearest whole number, which makes a tie for tenth.

    Here are the Top 10 in CONCACAF in the March 2018 FIFA Rankings:

    17. Mexico (even)
    25. USA (down 1)
    26. Costa Rica (down 1)
    49. Jamaica (up 1)
    53. Panama (even)
    64. Honduras (up 1)
    79. Trinidad and Tobago (up 1)
    82. Curacao (up 1)
    85. Haiti (up 1)
    87. El Salvador (up 2)

    Canada fell one spot to 90th and is the eleventh and final CONCACAF team in the top half. CONCACAF has 35 members of FIFA, so 11 is 31.4%. Guatemala moved up 1 spot to 126th during their suspension due to how other teams changed. Guatemala was 79th when they got suspended. CONCACAF had a net change of up 18, which is about 0.5 per team. CONCACAF teams have an average rank of 135.8 compared to 105.8 for all 211 teams. If every team had a unique number, the mean for all teams would be 106, but FIFA not breaking ties in the rankings makes the average for all teams be lower than 106.

    FIFA Rankings come out in 11 days. FIFA says US Virgin Islands, Montserrat, Cayman Islands, and British Virgin Islands will fall to 0 points, which is a mistake because all of them have points from the third most recent year that won't drop out yet. If they are listed with 0 points in April 2018, maybe I will contact FIFA.

    Canada has their best ranking since they were 80th in May 2013. The Top 10 combined to move up 18 spots, but all 35 teams combined to fall 40 spots. 12 teams moved at least 10 spots.

    Here are the Top 10 in CONCACAF in the June 2018 FIFA Rankings:

    15. Mexico (even)
    23. Costa Rica (up 2)
    25. USA (down 1)
    54. Jamaica (down 2)
    55. Panama (even)
    62. Honduras (down 3)
    72. El Salvador (up 13)
    79. Canada (up 1)
    81. Curacao (down 10)
    91. Trinidad and Tobago (up 1)

    Canada has their best ranking since they were 79th in April 2013. The teams to move at least 10 spots were El Salvador, Curacao, Puerto Rico, and Guyana. Puerto Rico was down 14 to 173rd and Guyana was down 18 to 182nd with the most spots dropped in the world. Other than El Salvador, the most spots gained was Belize, who was up 6 to 163rd. CONCACAF teams had an average change of down 1.1. Turks and Caicos Islands had their 13 points become too old, so they joined 5 other teams as tied for last with 0 points. Them, Anguilla, and Bahamas make half of those teams in CONCACAF.

    I'm happy to report that under the new FIFA ranking system, the US gained 1.4 points for it's draw against France bringing it up to 874 ranking points.

    As for the World Cup teams...

    Mexico has gained 17 points and dropped one spot to 16th
    Costa Rica lost 23 points and dropped two spots to 25th
    Panam lost 21 points and dropped three spots to 58th

    Disclaimer: This assumes that the new ranking system started when the most recent rankings came out. It assumes that each nation will start with its current number of points in the June 2018 rankings. It assumes I didn't make a stupid programming error somewhere.

    Mexico lost 2.2 points against Denmark (friendly), gained 45.0 beating Germany, Gained 6.4 beating South Korea, and lost 32.0 against Sweden.

    If they beat Brazil they would gain 41.7 points. A loss would result in zero points lost as the new formula does not punish teams for losing in the knockout stage.

    It appears the new ranking is supposed to go into effect after the WC is finished. So the 2018 WC results will still be under the old system.

    I couldn't find a date, just that it would be after the WC. It is good they are making the change though. It should help the stronger teams in AFC, CAF and CONCACAF rise a little higher.

    If they do wait, I think they'd need to adjust the ranking points. Whoever wins Brazil/Belgium would have such a massive point lead that they could lose every game for 2 or 3 years and still be #1.

    This seems like the right way to do this. Start the new system at the start of the new cycle.

    Where was it reported that the World Cup games would use the old system?

    The FIFA announcement said that:

    "will be inaugurated with the first official ranking following the 2018 FIFA World Cup""​

    And that date is set for Thursday July 19, according to FIFA's ranking page.

    Presumably, those July 19th rankings, will have been calculated using the new method since the last June release.

    And if that is the case and they used the June ranking points as the starting point, people will get a huge laugh when they still have Germany #1.
