Ghana has fallen six spots in the most recent FIFA World Ranking following a pretty underwhelming performance at the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON).

The Black Stars are still outside the top 10 in Africa according to the world football governing body’s release from Thursday, February 15, 2024.

Ghana is now ranked 67th in the world, and the Black Stars are now 14th on the continent, behind countries like Mali and South Africa.

The team’s poor performance at the AFCON, where they were unable to advance out of a group that included Egypt, Cape Verde, and Mozambique, is the reason behind the drop.

After the Black Stars lost to Cape Verde and drew with Egypt and Mozambique in their group stage matches, head coach Chris Hughton was fired.

Even though they were eliminated from the AFCON in the round of 16, Morocco is still ranked highest in Africa.

Senegal is ranked second, followed in order by Nigeria, Egypt, and the recently crowned AFCON champions, Ivory Coast.

In the continental rankings, South Africa completes the top ten, followed by Algeria in seventh place, Mali in eighth place, and Tunisia in sixth place.

Argentina, the world champions, are first in the global ranking. The top five also includes France, England, Belgium, and Brazil.

The following lists the top 10 African teams according to FIFA’s most recent global rankings:

  1. Morocco 
  2. Senegal 
  3. Nigeria 
  4. Egypt
  5. Ivory Coast 
  6. Tunisia 
  7. Algeria 
  8. Mali 
  9. Cameroon 
  10. South Africa
