The United States women's national team dropped to fifth in the latest FIFA ranking, its lowest point since FIFA began ranking women's teams in 2003.

The drop is one point lower than the fourth-place ranking given this past March as the downward direction continues.

Prior to 2024, the U.S. women had never been ranked below No. 2 in the world, but the team has now fallen three places in six months -- the most movement the USWNT has ever seen in the rankings as they head to the Paris Olympics in July.

Spain, France and England make up the top three, in that order, with women's World Cup runners-up England dropping to third.
