Ghana move up to 36th on FIFA ranking; still third best in Africa

Ghana moved up one place on latest FIFA ranking released on Thursday for the month of July but third in Africa.

The Black Stars are the 36th best national team in the world after a total of 228 ‘A’ internationals contributed to the new order.

Algeria remained in 32nd position and remained the continent’s highest ranked football nation.

Ivory Coast also moved up place to 35th and still the second best in Africa.

Argentina remain at the summit of the July ranking but only after a tumultuous month of action that resulted in plenty of movement further down.

New Zealand emerged as the month’s biggest climbers, moving up a whopping 54 places to 93rd on the back of an OFC Nations Cup victory that both qualified the All Whites for the 2017 FIFA Confederations Cup and furthered their FIFA World Cup qualifying ambitions.

Portugal will also be heading to Russia 2017 after their shock EURO 2016 triumph, an achievement that resulted in them leapfrogging Spain and Brazil into sixth position.
