Ghana drops on latest FIFA rankings

Ghana slipped two positions in the new FIFA Coca Cola world rankings published for the month of October on Thursday.

This is on the heels of the recent 3-0 defeat to Mali by the Black Stars and a 5-1 thrashing earlier this month by Asian champions Qatar in friendly matches.

Over the past month, the two games were part of 120 international games played by nations around the globe. Ghana, a place below Hungary and a place above Jamaica, moved down to the 48th spot. There was also a reduction in the cumulative accumulated points of the Black Stars by one from 1439 to 1438.

Ghana now ranks sixth in the continental table, ahead of Egypt (52 in the world), Cameroon (53), Mali (56), and Burkina Faso (58) in the top 10 in Africa.

Despite falling to one position in the world order, Senegal (21st in the world) still leads the African table.

Africa’s top five teams are Tunisia (26), African Champions Algeria (who moved up by five places to 30th in the world), Nigeria (who dropped by three places to 32nd place), and Morocco (up by four places to 39th).
