    Germany dropped 15 spots. I actually agree with it but shocked none the less

    Top Five:

    France
    Belgium
    Brazil
    Croatia
    England

    For those that may not know, the ranking is a cumulative rolling four-year span. Current games get weighted more than the four year-old games. Big tourney games get weighted higher than a friendly.

    Germany's prior WC championship drops off, current WC semifinalists have the largest new data points.

    I can't believe the USMNT is at 22. How is that possible?

    The 2014 WC results no longer apply to these rankings. Can the 2017 Gold Cup and Copa America results make that big of an impact?
