Despite a 1-0 loss to Japan at the Algarve Cup, the U.S. Women's Soccer Team hung on to the top spot in the latest FIFA rankings released today. Germany, the Algarve Cup Winners, stayed at number two but closed the gap between them and the U.S. to just three points. Japan meanwhile held steady at number three with Brazil, Sweden, France, Canada, North Korea, England and Australia rounding out the Top 10. Scotland (21), Costa Rica (40) Wales (45), Papua New Guinea (49) and Cameroon (52) all moved into their highest-ever positions in the FIFA rankings this month. Here's a look at the Top 20.

The next set of FIFA rankings comes out June 1st. The U.S. currently has two matches scheduled between now and then as they are set to travel to Japan at the end of the month where they will face the 3rd ranked Japanese (4/1) and number 4 Brazil (4/3).
