Fifa ranking, the big blow for France


By: Manu Tournoux

Finalist in the Women’s Nations League beaten by the Spanish world champions, France is third in the FIFA Women’s Ranking, ahead of the United States!

While Didier Deschamps’ Blues remain runner-up to Argentina in the men’s Fifa Ranking, France is also on the podium in the women’s Fifa Ranking! Hervé Renard’s players reached the final of the Women’s Nations League two weeks ago, only to lose to Spain (2-0), the 2023 world champion and logically at the top of this ranking. women’s national teams.

France is thus third, being overtaken by England, now number 2 in the world, but it benefits from the fall of the United States to 4th place. Quite improbably, the Americans won the Women’s Gold Cup last Sunday, against the Brazilians (1-0), thanks to a goal from Lindsay Horan. But their defeat in the group stage of the competition caused them to lose two places in the FIFA Women’s Ranking.

We then find Germany in 5th place in this world ranking sponsored by a famous sweet drink, then Sweden, Japan, the Netherlands, Canada and Brazil to complete the top 10.

Furthermore, the French women’s team will be decided next Wednesday regarding its three opponents in the group stage of the women’s football tournament of the Paris 2024 Olympic Games, with meetings scheduled at Groupama Stadium and Geoffroy-Guichard, on 25, 28 and July 31. Spain, Germany, the United States, Canada, Brazil, Colombia, Australia or Japan are qualified.
