Ghana Down Again In FIFA Rankings

GHANA dropped a point from 27th to 28th in the latest rankings of FIFA, the world football governing body released yesterday. 

The Black Stars who finished as runners-up at this year's African Cup of Nations, however, maintained their fifth position in Africa. 

 

The African Champions Egypt, whose success moved them into the top ten of the rankings, dropped seven places to 17th on the list. 

 

This means there is no African team amongst FIFA's top 15. The Pharaohs, however, remain the highest placed African country in the rankings. 

 

Cameroun are second but 20th placed 'in the world rankings, followed by Nigeria in 21st and Cote d'Ivoire in 22nd. 

 

The majority of changes in this month's rankings are due to the devaluation of results from last year and the fact that the 2008 Africa Cup of Nations final was played in February and not January like this year's. 

 

More movement can be expected in the next edition of the rankings as a considerable number of matches were played yesterday, a date reserved for friendly matches in the international match calendar. 

 

It is an opportunity for many teams, not just those who have qualified for South Africa 2010, to make progress in the rankings. 

 

South Africa are the only team representing Africa at the World Cup that remains outside the continent’s top ten. They are placed 16th in Africa and 81st overall. 

 

Spain continues to occupy the top spot in the world rankings ahead of Brazil and the Netherlands. 

 

Top ten in Africa - world rankings in brackets: 

1. Egypt (17) 


2. Cameroun (20) 


3. Nigeria (21)


4. Cote d’lvoire (22) 


5. Ghana (28)


6. Algeria (32)


7. Gabon (43)


8. Burkina Faso (51) 


9. Mali (54)


10. Tunisia (55).
