Ghana’s Black Stars have moved up by one place on the latest Fifa World Ranking to 46th place.
In the latest Fifa ranking, The Black Stars were the only team in the top 50 to record an upward movement and are now tied on points with Costa Rica and one spot above Jamaica.
Meanwhile in the African ranking, Ghana still clinging the sixth position reached in November, ahead of Egypt (51), Cameroon (53), Mali (56) and Congo DR (56) in the top 10.
Senegal (20), Tunisia (27), Nigeria (31), African champions Algeria (35) and Morocco (43) are the top five nations.
However, Belgium remain top of the FIFA World Rankings with 1765 points, followed by France (1733) and Brazil (1712). The well-known rankings haven’t seen significant changes due to the scarce number of international matches lately.
Belgium, France, and Brazil remain in the top 3 of the FIFA World Rankings in the first one published by the organisation in 2020. Belgium have 1765 points, followed by France with 1733 and Brazil with 1712.
“Indeed, with just 15 friendlies taking place since the last Ranking update in December – including two games in late 2019 – the top 20 remain unchanged, with Belgium, France and Brazil still making up the top three”, FIFA said.
In the top 50, the only teams to have suffered are Wales (who are now 23rd) and Paraguay (41st), who have moved down a place.
