Mailing it in: Obligatory FIFA rankings post

Lots to talk about these days in Canadian soccer: women play today vs Swiss, Nutrilite Canadian Championship finals getting started tonight, roster speculation for Ecuador friendly, Gold Cup.

But all I have the time (actually motivation) to post about just now is the latest FIFA rankings story.

The relevant info from the May FIFA rankings:

Canada dropped one spot to No. 76, sandwiched between Estonia and China.

The United States is the top team from CONCACAF, the soccer confederation that covers North and Central America and the Caribbean, at No. 22.

Canada ranks seventh among CONCACAF nations behind the U.S., Mexico (No. 28), Honduras (No. 43), Jamaica (No. 55), Costa Rica (No. 56) and Panama (No. 67).

Canada's June 1st friendly opponent, Ecuador, dropped 8 spots to 64th.

Look for posts tomorrow recapping the Vancouver - Toronto match (10 pm et / 7 pm pt on Rogers Sportsnet) as well as updating the stadings in the Nutrilite contest (get your final predictions in now if you haven't done so yet).
