FIFA Women's World Rankings

Swiss on the rise but all quiet up top

While all remains calm in the upper reaches of the FIFA/Coca-Cola Women’s World Ranking, with USA still sat on top of the pile, there is delight for Switzerland who have risen to their highest-ever position of 15th.

Martina Voss-Tecklenburg’s side, who made it to the round of 16 at last year’s FIFA Women’s World Cup™ in Canada, have climbed four places since March thanks to wins over Italy and the Czech Republic, which also sealed their spot at next year’s UEFA Women’s EURO.

The Swiss are the joint-biggest movers alongside Iceland, who are now just behind Switzerland in 16th, one position shy of their all-time best placing, thanks to a trio of wins in their quest for a spot at the same competition. Bosnia and Herzegovina have also climbed to their highest position of 60th despite being unable to clinch a continental finals place.

Only Kenya have surpassed Iceland in claiming the biggest points haul this quarter, having upset the odds by securing an away-goals win over Algeria to propel them to a debut spot at the CAF Africa Women’s Cup of Nations. The Kenyans now sit 130th in the table, while that defeat has seen Algeria drop seven places to 81st.

Apart from qualifiers in Europe and Africa, the rest of the 99 games played since March have been friendlies all across the globe, with results helping the likes of Costa Rica (29th), the Philippines (72nd), Guyana (82nd), New Caledonia (87th) and Burkina Faso (115th) all reach new highs. A special mention also goes to Austria who, while not managing to increase their rank beyond their current best-ever of 25th, have now gone three-and-a-half years of successive point increases with every new release of the women’s ranking.

Bulgaria have re-entered the table after dropping out in March, although five teams have slipped out due to inactivity, namely Argentina, Guam, Pakistan, Afghanistan and Bhutan, leaving 132 teams in the ranking.

The next FIFA/Coca-Cola Women’s World Ranking will be published on 26. August 2016.
