The 2015 Women’s World Cup winners USA have displaced Germany at the top of the FIFA World Rankings while their opponents in the final, Japan, remain in fourth place.
France also stay put in third having made the quarter-finals, as fellow European nations Sweden and Norway drop two places and move up one place respectively.
Other climbers in the top 10 include Australia and Brazil, while World Cup hosts Canada drop from 8th to 11th.
A historic bronze medal and first ever victory over Germany, sees England reach their highest ever FIFA World Ranking of 5th as disappointing campaigns for Spain and Switzerland allow Scotland, who did not feature in the tournament, to move up to 20th.
Cameroon made the biggest jump, moving up 10 places to 43rd in the World after reaching the last 16 in their first ever World Cup appearance. Another debutant side Costa Rica also made significant gains in the rankings alongside Colombia and Nigeria.
