Haiti Rank 104th in FIFA World ranking for the month of April.

ZURICH, Switzerland (CMC) - World Cup qualifiers Trinidad & Tobago are stalking Jamaica's Reggae Boyz for the number one spot in the Caribbean Football Union (CFU) rankings after their second consecutive two-place climb in the latest FIFA Coca Cola Rankings.

FIFA's April ratings list released yesterday shows Jamaica, the CFU's number one, elevating themselves one place to number 44 in the world, while Trinidad & Tobago stepped up to 47th - from 49th last month - to sit just three places behind Jamaica on the world list.

T&T are preparing for their first ever appearance in a World Cup Finals starting in June in Germany.

Cuba, 79th in the world, remain number three in the CFU, followed by Haiti, 104th on the FIFA list, and Barbados (118th).

Meanwhile, CONCACAF (Confederation for North, Central America and Caribbean Association Football) giants USA and Mexico continue to enjoy prominence on the world list.

The USA are up one place to fourth place, their highest-ever ranking position, one spot ahead of Spain while Mexico are sixth, up from seventh in March.

Third in the CONCACAF rankings behind Mexico and the USA are Costa Rica at 26th in the world, while Honduras (41st) are fourth, one place ahead of Jamaica.

Brazil top the rankings for the 45th consecutive month, with the Czech Republic second.
