The Indian women's national team have dropped two places in the latest edition of the FIFA Women's Rankings of 2022 released on Friday.
However, among Asian nations, India remain 12th, with Korea DPR, Japan, Australia, China PR and Korea Republic occupying the top AFC five places in that order.
Thomas Dennerby's side had gained three spots in the June 2022 edition of the rankings despite not being involved in an official game since the 1-0 wins against friendlies against Jordan and Egypt in April.
Winners of the CONCACAF Women’s Championship, United States (1st, -), continue to top the Women's World Rankings. Next, Women's EURO 2022 runners-up Germany (2nd, +3) took a leap from fifth to displace semi-finalists Sweden (3rd, -1), while champions England (4th, +4) moved ahead of France (5th, -2) in the top five.
A few more consequential changes in the top 10 see the likes of Netherlands (6th, -2), Canada (7th, -1) and Spain (8th, -1) drop places.
