The FIFA/Coca-Cola Women’s World Rankings looks at each country’s international results from the last four years. The ranking takes into account the result, the importance of the match, the strength of the opponent, the regional strength, the time period, and the number of matches per year. The ranking comes out four times a year.



There was no movement amongst the top-5 nations, with England making the big jump from 10th to 6th overall. As expected, Korea DPR dropped out of the top-10 while AFC champion Australia moved into the top-10.



The next FIFA/Coca-Cola Women’s World Ranking will be published on 23 September.
