    Canada continues rise in world soccer rankings

     ZURICH (CP) -- Canada has cracked the top 60 in the world soccer rankings, moving up four places to No. 59 in the June ratings released today.

     The Canadians are now nestled between Japan and Switzerland, tied for 57th, and Thailand.

     It is Canada's best rating since September 1997, when the Canadians were 59th. The highest Canada has ever placed since the rankings started in 1993 was 40th in December 1996.

     Canada stands fifth among CONCACAF countries behind Mexico (No. 8), the U.S. (No. 19), Trinidad and Tobago (No. 34) and Jamaica (No. 54).

     Cuba, Canada's opponent Sunday in the second leg of a World Cup qualifying series, rose two places to No. 73.

     Brazil remains atop the standings with France leapfrogging the Czech Republic to move into No. 2. Spain was fourth, followed by Argentina, Germany, Norway (up one), Mexico, Croatia (down two) and Yugoslavia.

     The big movers were in CONCACAF this month, on the strength of World Cup qualifying wins, with Trinidad and Tobago up seven at No. 34, Barbados, up nine at No. 93, St. Vincent and the Grenadines (up nine to No. 121) and Antigua, up 12 at No. 141.

     Also moving up were Guinea (up 14, No. 80) and Cap Verde (up 22, No. 157).
