Spain rises to number two in the FIFA ranking after winning the World Cup


The Spanish women’s soccer team rose to second place in the FIFA ranking this Friday, after the latest update of the body that governs world soccer, after the 2023 World Cup in Australia and New Zealand that Spain won.

The national team, which made history by winning the World Cup for the first time when it had not even gone beyond crosses in any previous edition, rose from sixth to second position in the ranking of the best teams in the world.

The victory in the final in Sydney against England established the greatest showcase for Spanish women’s football and was reflected in a ranking that Sweden, bronze in the Australian tournament, now dominates. The United States fell from first to third position, after their worst result in a World Cup, round of 16.
