The United States women's football team extended its five-year reign atop the FIFA rankings on Friday and new European champion England moved up to number 4, reports AP.

Sweden, the 2020 Olympics silver medallist, drops one place to number 3 after being beaten by England in the semifinals at Euro 2022.

Fifth-place France and number 6 Netherlands both dropped two spots. Olympic champion Canada is number 7.

New African champion South Africa jumped four places to number 54 in the rankings which now include a record 185 of the 211 FIFA member federations.
