The Republic of Ireland women’s national team rose to their highest position in the latest FIFA Women’s World Rankings.
Vera Pau’s side moved up to 26th place, which means they are now in the top 16 European teams.
The team has moved up six places overall since Pau took over in 2019. The Irish manager believes the team can go even higher as they qualify for the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup.
“It is great to see the Republic of Ireland Women’s National Team rise to their highest position in the FIFA Women’s World Rankings as it is a reflection of the great work the players and staff have done over the years.
“We are growing together and improving with every game, so while this achievement is brilliant, it is only part of our journey with two very important FIFA Women’s World Cup qualifiers in Finland and away to Slovakia in September.
“Everything 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 continue climbing those rankings with the aim of qualifying for next summer’s World Cup.”
Ireland play Finland at Tallaght Stadium on September 1st before facing Slovakia in Seneca on Thursday September 6th.
