The Black Stars of Ghana have dropped out of the top 50 countries in the FIFA World Rankings to 52nd place in the list released for the month of September on Thursday.
However, the Stars improved from ninth place in the August ranking to become the eight best team on the African continent for September.
The senior national team were ranked the 50th best team in the world in the August rankings and it appears a 1-1 draw at home to Congo Brazzaville in the FIFA World Cup qualifiers affected their slump on the overall rankings. They also defeated the Congolese 5-1 away in the reverse fixture.
Egypt retained their place as Africa’s highest ranked team in the world despite slipping five places to 30th place in the overall ranking.
