The Black Stars of Ghana have dropped one place in FIFA’s latest world rankings.
The four-time Africa Cup of Nations winners are now 61st, after being previously ranked 60th. This means the Black Stars are still the least ranked country heading into the 2022 World Cup.
On the continent, the Black Stars are ranked 11th, with Senegal maintaining top spot. Morocco, Tunisia, Nigeria and Algeria complete Africa’s top five.
Brazil also maintain their top spot on the globe in a very familiar top 10, with Italy leapfrogging Spain into 6th, the only change.
Ghana thus becomes the lowest ranked side of the 32 teams going to Qatar.
This is also the lowest Ghana has sunk heading into a World Cup.
