Ghana fall on FIFA Ranking

Ghana’s Black Stars are now ranked 45th in the world but still remained eighth in Africa as FIFA took into account 129 games played in the latest grading.

The Black Stars drop from 43rd to 45th was due to failure to engage any country during the FIFA date for international friendlies last month.

Elsewhere, Egypt remained the Africa No.1 country as they moved up one place to 35th on the table; followed by Senegal, Cameroon and Burkina Faso.

Brazil capped off a fine fortnight of football as they moved to the top of the FIFA/Coca-Cola World Ranking, reclaiming their seat at the top of the podium after a seven-year chasm.

The next FIFA/Coca-Cola World Ranking will be published on 4 May 2017.
