The Football Ferns will go into next month’s FIFA Women’s World Cup with a global ranking as the 26th-best international team.
The latest FIFA rankings have seen the Ferns slip from 25th to 26th after their last results, a 1-1 draw with Iceland and a 3-0 loss to Nigeria.
The Ferns have endured a gradual decline in the rankings from 16th in the world a decade ago.
World Cup holders remain the number 1 ranked side, having held top spot since June 2017.
