Scotland have fallen one place to 20th in the Fifa women's rankings announced ahead of Saturday's World Cup draw.

The rankings will be used to determine which pot teams are in, with the Scots confirmed in the third tier of seeds.

Scotland played just once since the previous rankings update, losing narrowly to world champions United States, who remain top of the rankings.

Shelley Kerr's side swap places with New Zealand, while England also drop a place to fourth behind France.

In their preparations for the finals in France, Scotland will play Norway and Iceland in La Manga in January, then are taking part in the Algarve Cup in February and March.
