Black Stars Black Stars

Ghana have moved one place up in the latest FIFA World Ranking released on Thursday.

In a largely unchanged Top 50, Ghana are the only side that made the move up the ranking.

But the 2010 World Cup quarter-finalists are tied with Costa Rica on the 46th position.

Ghana’s gains did not affect their position on the Africa rankings, unfortunately, as they still remain 6th.

They are only better on the log than Egypt, Cameroon, Mali and DR Congo in the Top 10.

Senegal remain the top-ranked African side though 20th on the world ranking.

Tunisia and Nigeria follow in 2nd and 3rd respectively with African champions Algeria fourth.

Morocco join them as the Top 5 highest-ranked African sides.

Belgium continue to stay top on the overall ranking with world champions France, Brazil, England and Uruguay making up the Top 5.
