On the continental level, they are still placed fourth behind Senegal (18), Morocco (23) and Tunisia (30).

On the global scene, with five major tournaments in different parts of the world, international women‘s football has hogged the headlines in recent months.

Fifty-eight international fixtures were played in the men‘s game, mostly in Africa and Asia, hence changes in the August edition of the FIFA World Ranking are few and far between.

Two countries, Mauritania (107th, plus 3) and Botswana (146th, plus 3) have been posting good results, as reflected by a climb of three places each in the standings.

That progress makes them jointly the two most-improved sides in terms of places.

In the top 50, almost nothing has changed from the previous edition,  Brazil (1st, ), Belgium (2nd,  ) and Argentina (3rd,  ) still occupy the podium places, while their immediate followers remain in the same order they were in June.
