The Icelandic Women’s National Football Team was ranked 18th best in the world in FIFA’s most recently released rankings.

On Friday morning, the international football authority released their most recent rankings of women’s national football teams.

The Icelandic team went up by two places, from 20th to 18th. This is nonetheless not the highest ranking ever achieved by the team, which placed 15th best in 2011.

The United States, the most recent world champions, top the list, followed by Germany, France, Japan and England.
