England’s Euros win on home soil pushed them up four spots from eighth, while runners-up Germany leapfrogged losing semi-finalists Sweden into second.

South Africa moved up to 54th off the back of their first Women’s Africa Cup of Nations title, while Zambia, who reached the tournament’s semi-finals, were the most improved side in the rankings, rising 23 places to 80th.
