Meanwhile, reigning women’s world champions Spain end the year as the number one ranked team, which is their first-ever feat.

At number two is former FIFA women’s World Cup winners USA, France are third, England maintained fourth and Sweden dropped to fifth.

The next FIFA women’s world ranking will be published in March 2024.
