Spain, which continued its upward trend in recent major competitions by dominating last year’s Women’s World Cup and last month’s UEFA Women’s Nations League, maintained first place, while England jumped two places to second place.

3rd to 5th place were France, the United States, and Germany.

Among Asian countries, Japan ranked 7th, North Korea ranked 11th, Australia ranked 12th, and China ranked 19th.
