US surge to top spot of women’s rankings


LAUSANNE: The United States returned to the top of the women’s FIFA world rankings on Friday after their victorious World Cup campaign in Canada. The US won a record third world title when they thrashed holders Japan 5-2 in the final at BC Place Stadium in Vancouver on Sunday, meaning they knock Germany off the top of the rankings. France, who were beaten on penalties by the Germans in the quarterfinals, hold on to third place, just ahead of the Japanese despite the latter making the finals.
