Ghana maintained its 46th position as the FIFA World Ranking made a return for the first time in six months.
The global order of national team’s seedings, ordinarily updated monthly, had been halted since March 2020, following the disruptions of the international match calendar due to COVID-19.
With games returning for the first time earlier this month, mainly across Europe, the ranking is back.
Ghana, last in international action in November 2019, still occupy the 46th position they held in March.
Ranked 51st in September last year, the Black Stars presently tie Costa Rica on the 46th position but sit just above Jamaica (48th), per the latest update published on FIFA’s official website on Thursday, September 17, 2020.
On the continental level, Ghana holds the sixth spot, below Senegal (20th in the world), Tunisia (26), Nigeria (29), African champions Algeria (35) and Morocco (43).
Egypt (51), Cameroon (53), Mali (57) and Congo DR (57) complete Africa’s top 10.
Back on the world ranking table, there was no change among the top four as Belgium, France, Brazil and England kept their places from first to fourth in that order on the latest update.
On the back of good performances in their UEFA Nations League games earlier this month, Portugal have moved up by two places, taking over the fifth position.
Uruguay, Spain, Croatia, Argentina and Colombia complete the top 10 from sixth in that order.
The next edition of the rankings will be released on October 22.
