Ghana has fallen by two places on the latest edition of the FIFA World Rankings announced for the month of October.

The development comes on the back of the Black Stars’ recent 3-0 loss to African counterparts Mali and a 5-1 thrashing of Asian champions and 2022 World Cup hosts Qatar in friendly matches earlier this month.

The two games were part of 120 international ties played by nations across the globe over the last month.

Released by FIFA on Thursday, Ghana move down to 48th position in the rankings, a place below Hungary and a spot above Jamaica.


There was also a drop in the Black Stars’ total accumulated points by one from 1439 to 1438.

Last year by this time – with James Kwasi Appiah as head coach of the side – Ghana held 51st position in the world and the seventh spot in Africa.

On the continental table this October 2020, Ghana, now under coach CK Akonnor, hold the sixth position, above Egypt (52 in the world), Cameroon (53), Mali (56) and Burkina Faso (58) in Africa’s top 10.

The next FIFA rankings will be released on November 26.
