The latest FIFA world rankings for women soccer are out and guess which team is No. 1.
Less than a week after the U.S. Women’s National Team defeated Japan 5-2 to win its third World Cup, they have supplanted Germany as the top-ranked team in the world. The Germans, which lost to the U.S. in the World Cup semi-finals are second, with France third, Japan fourth and England fifth.
Sitting atop the FIFA world ranking serves as the cherry on top of what is a massive sundae for the U.S. women and caps an incredible week for the world champions. The week started with a World Cup victory, followed by a fan rally in Los Angeles and then a massive ticker-tape parade down New York City’s Canyon of Heroes, the first for a women’s sports team.
