Canada drops two places in the FIFA rankings after the early World Cup exit


ZURICH – The United States has expanded their leading position in the FIFA ranking by retaining the World Championship.

The fourth world title of the American ladies built a record points lead on number 2 Germany, which lost in the quarterfinals against Sweden.

The Netherlands used its second runner-up finish last Sunday to rise five places to No. 3, above the World Cup host France who lost to the US in the quarterfinals.

England came in fourth in the World Cup but falls out of the top 4 rankings to number 5, thus beating the third-placed Sweden, which rises to number 6.

Canada, which lost to Sweden in the round of 16 during the World Cup, dropped two places at number 7 just before Australia.

With qualifying games for the Olympic Games 2020 that were also played in the past month, a record of 158 national teams have been ranked. That leaves 53 FIFA member federations without an active team in the rankings.

FIFA Top 10 rankings for July (last ranking in brackets):

1. United States (1)

2. Germany (2)

3. The Netherlands (8)

4. France (4)

5. England (3)

6. Sweden (9)

7. Canada (5)

8. Australia (6)

9. North Korea (11)

10. Brazil (10).
