The United States remains atop the FIFA women's world rankings despite its World Cup final defeat to Japan in a penalty shootout last Sunday.

The U.S. has topped the standings since March 2008, and is followed by Germany, Brazil, Japan and Sweden.

England climbs four places to No. 6, ahead of France.

Canada, the 2015 World Cup host, fell two places to No. 8.

North Korea drops four to No. 12 and faces a FIFA disciplinary investigation after five of its players tested positive for anabolic steroids at the tournament in Germany.
