Suriname and Dominica were the biggest movers in the Caribbean Football Union, in the latest international rankings released on Thursday by Football’s world governing body, FIFA.
The Dutch-speaking Caribbean country leapt 14 places to move to 13th in the CFU region and to 155th in the overall FIFA rankings.
Dominica, meanwhile, jumped 12 spots to be 16th in CFU, while rising to 165th in FIFA.
There was good news for St Lucia who moved up to tenth in CFU and 131st in the world, after climbing five places.
St Vincent and the Grenadines continued sixth in CFU by jumping six spots to 110th in the world. They have made steady progress since the start of the year, after being ranked 121st in FIFA back in January.
There were no such good fortunes for Guyana and Grenada, however, as both countries took nosedives.
Guyana dropped eight places in the FIFA rankings to 163rd, to be 15th in the CFU while Grenada slipped six spots, to be 17th in the CFU and 171st in the world.
Meanwhile, Trinidad and Tobago remained as the highest-ranked CFU in the FIFA rankings at 65th in the world, nine clear of Jamaica’s Reggae Boyz who moved up one place to be 74th.
French Caribbean side, Haiti, lie third in the CFU and 79th in the FIFA rankings.
