The Westfield Matildas have remained in 5th in the latest FIFA Women’s Rankings released yesterday.

Australia surged into the World’s top 5 back in March after a superb Olympic qualification campaign which saw Alen Stajcic’s side remain unbeaten to qualify for the Games.

The Aussies played a two-game friendly series against New Zealand earlier this month with the Matildas enjoying a 2-0 win in Ballarat before being held to a 1-1 draw in Melbourne three days later.

The Matildas are in camp at the AIS over the next fortnight ahead of the Rio Games in August.

The top nations in the latest rankings are USA in first, Germany in second and France in third.
