The Korean national team participating in the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup Australia-New Zealand, which will open in July, maintained 17th place in the FIFA rankings.
The women’s soccer team led by coach Colin Bell ranked 17th in the women’s soccer ranking announced by FIFA on the 24th (Korean time), maintaining the ranking announced in October last year.
Korea’s 17th place is the second highest among the teams in Group H of this Women’s World Cup. Germany ranked the highest at 2nd, followed by Colombia and Moro at 26th and 73rd respectively.
The United States, the world’s strongest country, took first place. Following Germany, Sweden came in third, followed by England and France in fourth and fifth respectively. Australia, co-host of the Women’s World Cup, ranked 10th and New Zealand ranked 25th. 메이저놀이터
Meanwhile, Saudi Arabia was included in the rankings for the first time ever. The Saudi Arabia women’s national team, which played its first A match against Seychelles in February last year, ranked 171st out of 188 countries.
On the other hand, North Korea was deleted from the FIFA rankings. According to FIFA rules, if a player does not play an A match for 48 months, they are considered ‘inactive’ and are not included in the rankings. Because of this, North Korea, whose last A match was a 3-3 draw with Italy on March 6, 2019, was deleted from this ranking.
