ZURICH — Belgium has kept the No. 1 spot in the FIFA rankings among an unchanged top 18 for February.

The United States remained in 32nd place.

With no international matches played by the 20 best teams so far this year, Belgium still leads second-place Argentina and third-place Spain.

World Cup champion Germany is No. 4, followed by Chile and Brazil in a top 10 dominated by European and South American teams.

The three teams which made the biggest moves since the last rankings all come from Asia: Palestine at No. 110 (up 21 spots), Saudi Arabia at No. 55 (up 20 spots), and North Korea at No. 95 (up 18 spots).
