Ghana slips on FIFA ranking

Ghana has dropped six places down in August edition of the FIFA ranking.

The Black Stars lost their 45th position after shockingly losing to Kenya in a Cup of Nations qualifier.

Kenya defeated Ghana 1-0 to see the African giants drop to 51st globally with Kenya themselves moving six places up to 101.

Not only did the Black Stars drop on the World ranking, the team also sunk on the continent moving from 2nd place to 7th, thus falling behind the likes of Senegal, DR Congo, Morocco, Nigeria and Cameroon who were previously ranked behind Ghana.

Belgium moved up on the ranking as joint leaders together with World Champions France.
