Ghana maintained a 46th position on the FIFA ranking for March 2020 as the table remained almost static due to the outbreak of the deadly coronavirus which led to the suspension of all football activities worldwide.
The Black Stars and all the other national teams in the world could not play any international friendly matches in the month of March because football is currently on suspension.
This has resulted in no football activities and, consequently, next-to-no movement in the latest FIFA/Coca-Cola World Ranking.
Ghana maintained its lastest ranking for the month of March as the table remained static.
The Black Stars were scheduled to play Sudan in back-to-back Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers that could have impacted on the country's ranking but was called off.
Ghana was not involved in any football activity in the previous month, hence maintained their accumulated points, 1439, and 46th position in the world.
Ghana also ranked 6th position in Africa.
The top five ranked in the FIFA ranking on the African continent are Senegal, Tunisia, Nigeria, Algeria and Morocco in 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th positions, respectively.
Ghana is not the only country from number 1 to number 50 that did not move up or down on the FIFA ranking for March.
This means the three top nations stayed the same, with Brazil at No. 3, 2018 World Cup winners France at No. 2, and Belgium at No. 1.
YEN.com.gh earlier reported that Legendary Ghanaian footballer Mohammed Polo has blasted former Ghana internationals Samuel Osei Kuffour and Tony Baffoe for being disrespectful to Ghana Old Players Association, which is the mother body of retired footballers in the country.
According to Polo, Samuel Osei Kuffour and Tony Baffoe are the reason why the Ghana Old Players could not vote at Ghana Football Association (GFA) elections.
The 1978 Africa Cup of Nations winner rubbished comments by Samuel Osei Kuffour and Tony Baffoe that for the Ghana Old Players to vote during the GFA elections, they needed to join the Professional Footballers Association of Ghana (PFAG).
