Ghana drops one place in latest FIFA Rankings

Ghana’s Black Stars dropped one place to 51st in the latest Coca-Cola FIFA Rankings released on Thursday.

Kwesi Appiah’s team have not been in action since their disappointing Round 16 exit at the AFCON back in July.

The Black Stars however maintained their 7th place ranking in Africa, behind Senegal, Tunisia, Algeria, Nigeria, Morocco and Egypt, who occupy the first six places.

Belgium remain top of the overall rankings with the top 10 remaining unchanged.

However, there was some movement, with France (2nd) and Brazil (3rd) trading places.

The Cayman Islands (193rd, up 11), and Grenada (160th, up 13) emerged the joint-biggest climbers by points, reaping the rewards after their successful showing in the Concacaf Nations League, with Grenada’s 13-place surge making them September’s highest climber by ranks.
