Womens FIFA World Cup Soccer Calculating RPI

Hello,
I’ve written a small PHP program last night to generate FIFA womens team stats.
I decided to post the stats here. I really like calculating RPI statistics as it gives you a very good meter to measure team strength with.

2002-2010 Womens World Cup FIFA RPI.

Here’s a compilation of all the team stats since 2002-2010.
It should be accurate but I might be missing some games (150 games total).
It’s probably not the most useful data as teams change, same with players, coaches, playing styles etc.

2010 Womens World Cup FIFA RPI.

This might be more useful as it only uses 2010 match data. It’s the recent relative team strengths.
RPI is usually a very good indicator of how a team will do. You can can compare two teams often by looking
at their RPI, whatever team has the higher RPI will most of the time come out the winner.
