The Malta women’s national team has climbed three places in the latest FIFA rankings published on Thursday,
Formerly coached by Mark Gatt, the Maltese side is now into 88th place after their latest victory against Montenegro helped them move from 91st.
Malta and Montenegro rubbed shoulders in September’s final 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup qualifier, with the Eastern European nation sitting 87th at the time.
Goals from Maria Farrugia and Emma Lipman handed Malta a 2-0 win which helped the Maltese to finish their campaign with a record-seven point tally in a World Cup qualification.
The women’s senior team is yet to appoint a new coach after coach Gatt announced that he won’t extend his contract following this World Cup qualifying campaign.
The next women’s rankings will be published on December 9.
