[Sport] Spain makes history in the women's FIFA 'ranking': the achievement that only the United States, Germany and Sweden had achieved before

The Spanish women's soccer team continues to break barriers in 2023. The most outstanding year in its history will close with nothing less than first place in the FIFA ranking, as announced this Friday. Becoming the best in the world is an achievement within the reach of very few, but the national team has managed to get into a select group, of which only three teams were part before Spain burst into the foreground.

From today, ours sneak into a conversation limited, until now, to the United States, Germany and Sweden. They are the only women's teams that have led the world ranking since it was created, with Spain being the fourth of all time to hold that status. The Swedes were first previously, but have fallen to fifth place with the new update.

The world champions have achieved 2066.05 points, unsurpassed by the United States, with 2045.12, and France, which has remained at 2021.69. Beyond the podium, England, Sweden, Germany, Netherlands, Japan, North Korea and Canada complete the top ten positions. It will be at the top of the table, at least, until March 15, 2024.

There is another milestone for Spain as a result of what happened: only Germany had ruled in both the men's and women's FIFA rankings before. A reality that has changed the great season of the girls, who dream of qualifying for the Olympic Games for the first time thanks to the good work they have been doing in recent months.

World champions and qualified for the Final Four of the Nations League
Of course, this summer's World Cup title overshadows absolutely everything. In an almost perfect tournament, La Roja dominated at practically every moment to take the first star, second overall in the Spanish king sport, in Australia and New Zealand. The doubts only arose against Japan at the close of the group stage and were completely dispelled in some more than solid matches.

Aitana Bonmatí, new holder of the Ballon d'Or, was the undisputed leader of the squad, whose sporting success has transcended society. Players like her, Alexia Putellas, Olga Carmona and Jenni Hermoso, among others, are more po[CENSORED]r than ever among ordinary people. Something that is undoubtedly due to having lifted the planetary trophy.

Despite the fact that the Rubiales case somewhat clouded the feat and that Montse Tomé's first steps as a coach could not have been more complicated, the team has continued to be close to being outstanding on the field of play. Hence, the Final Four of the Nations League has been reached without complications, in which they will try to reach Paris 2024.

The Netherlands will be the rival in the semifinal of the European competition, which will be held on February 23. There is a good chance that reaching the final will mean earning an Olympic ticket, so this is a momentous clash. On the other hand, winning third and fourth place would entail a prize in the event that France, already in the Games as hosts, is a finalist.
