WNT reach highest ever FIFA ranking position

The latest update from the FIFA Women's World Rankings has revealed that the Republic of Ireland Women's National Team moved up to their highest ever position.

Vera Pauw's team climbed one place up to 26th, which elevates them into the top 16 of European teams.

Since Pauw took charge in 2019 the team has moved up six places overall and she feels that they can go even higher as the team eyes qualification to the 2023 FIFA Women's World Cup.

"It is fantastic to see the Republic of Ireland Women's National Team rise up to their highest ever position in the FIFA Women's World Rankings because this is a reflection of the tremendous work that the players and staff have put in over the years.

"We have been growing together and improving with each game, so while this achievement is brilliant it is only one part of our journey that continues with two hugely important FIFA Women's World Cup qualifiers at home to Finland and away to Slovakia in September.

"Everything that we achieve is as a team and that includes our amazing fans, our sponsors and everyone at the FAI. We will continue to work hard to keep climbing those rankings as we aim to qualify for next summer's World Cup."

Ireland will take on Finland on Thursday, September 1st in Tallaght Stadium before Travelling to face Slovakia in Senec on Thursday, September 6th.
