Kenya’s Harambee Starlets have gone ten places up in the latest FIFA Women’s Ranking released on Friday 13 December.
The David Ouma coached side is now in position 133 globally after beating traditional African powerhouses Ghana (60th, down 10) over two legs in the 2020 Olympic Qualifiers.
The other team who enjoyed a double-digit rise was DR Congo (108th, up 10) this after their unlikely home win over Cameroon in the same qualifying games.
USA will end 2019 as they began it: on top of the FIFA/Coca-Cola Women's World Ranking. Brazil also heads into 2020 in familiar territory, having made an immediate return to the top ten this after dropping out in September for the first time in their history.
This latest edition provides cause for celebration, too, for six countries who improve on their erstwhile record positions, with Belgium (17th, up 1), Chile (36th, up 1), Papua New Guinea (46th, up 1), Slovenia (50th, up 3), Panama (53rd, up 3) and Fiji (65th, up 3) all reaching new highs.
The next FIFA Women’s World Ranking will be published on 27 March 2020.
