Ghana’s Women’s team are ranked 3rd in Africa and 50th in the Word in the latest rankings released by FIFA on Friday.

The Black Queens dropped two places in the latest ranking which is released every quarter.

Ghana is behind Nigeria and Cameroon on the African rankings having garnered 1459 points in the period under review.

The world football governing body considered 142 matches to reach its conclusion which sees USA maintain its lead in the world ranking for the sixth consecutive year.
