Belize at 158 in FIFA Women’s World Ranking, the United States is still number 1

By Rubén Morales Iglesias: The United States is still the top women’s national football team in the world according to the latest FIFA World Ranking announced today by FIFA.

FIFA.com said that not only did the US play more games than any other team since the last edition of the World Ranking in December 2020, but they were also undefeated.

Germany is in the second spot while the Netherlands bumped France from the third to the fourth position.

Sweden is in the fifth position, followed by England (6), Brazil (7), Canada (8), Australia (9), and North Korea (10).

Belize is ranked 158 out of 167. Though our team has not played an international game in a long time, the team is still ranked as FIFA changed its permissible period of inactivity, extending it from 18 to 48 months.

Due to inactivity our team dropped 23 spots from 135 in the last edition published on December 18, 2020.  In December, Belize was 135 out of 142 teams ranked.

On August 14, 2020, Belize was ranked 150 out of 159.

The top five in Concacaf in this month’s ranking are the United States (1), Canada (8) Mexico (28), Costa Rica (36) and Jamaica (51).

FIFA said that the next ranking will be published on June 25.
