Argentina has received the number one ranking for the second consecutive month in international soccer, according to FIFA, the world’s soccer regulatory commission. This is yet another big achievement for the South American squad, who narrowly beat out rival Brazil for the top honors. Argentina is considered to be one of the biggest hotbeds of soccer talent worldwide, and they are currently preparing for a title run in the 2010 World Cup in South Africa. The city of Buenos Aires has 24 professional soccer teams, the most in any city in the world, and soccer here is considered more of a national passion than a sport.
