In the two months since the last FIFA women‘s world ranking was published, only about a third of its teams (56 of 167) have been in action, and that just in friendlies.

The United States remaned atop the rankings, extending its lead as it prepares for the Tokyo Olympics. The Summer Games in Japan kicks off July 21.

France (3rd) regain the third spot the Netherlands (4th) wrested from them a few weeks ago. The Leeuwinnen had mixed results in the period, losing 1-0 to Italy (14th) but also routing Norway (13th) 7-0, whereas France enjoyed a 1-0 win over Germany, which continue to occupy second place behind the USA.

Beaten by Les Bleues and then held scoreless by Chile (37th), Germany nonetheless lost ground on the frontrunners. 124.20 points now separate the top two teams, the largest such gap ever seen.

For their part, Japan (10th) returned to the Top 10 following wins over Ukraine (31st), and Mexico (28th) twice. Korea DPR (11th) were the team making way as they slipped out of the Top 10.

Further down the standings, Tunisia (77th) jumped two places courtesy of a pair of victories over Jordan (63rd), who fall four places. Georgia (123rd) went one better by ascending three places after a win (3-2) and a draw (0-0) against Azerbaijan (78th), who were 49 rungs above them before their meetings.

While no team managed a new, all-time high this month in terms of ranking placement, several did achieve new highs in terms of points: Spain (12th, 1935.87 pts), Slovenia (49th, 1492.86 pts), Jamaica (51st, 1468.81 pts), and Bosnia and Herzegovina (58th, 1416.85 pts).
