The FIFA Women's rankings

FIFA Women's Rankings - updated June 2016

June 2016, Switzerland - FIFA: The new rankings for international women's football were released. Above is the top 5, USA, Germany, France,England, and Australia. No movers, no changes in the lineup there. I love looking at the rest of the rankings and seeing what country is making a shift in their programs to move up. Argentina went from 35th place last year, dropping to 133rd this year. Futbol Femenino in Argentina  struggles with sexism and macho attitudes about women playing sports, especially their beloved futbal (Argentina men's team continue to rank as No. 1 despite having never won a major international tournament). These attitudes result in lack of funding and opportunity.  It's from 2012 but still paints the picture of the struggles they're having. Hopefully, the ground-breaking proposed changes at FIFA towards equality for the women's game will reach into each country's national teams and on down into the youth programs.  So, where did your team rank?
