Black Stars drop to 52nd on latest FIFA ranking

The rankings for September 2017 were released on Thursday, with the Black Stars slipping to 52nd after recording mixed results during the last international break.

Ghana was previously ranked 50th in the world and ninth in Africa, however, the position of the West African nation has changed following Black Stars’ inconsistent run of form.

The slip up may have been necessitated after Ghana drew 1-1 with Congo in Kumasi, before subsequently mulling the Red Devils 5-1 in Brazzaville.

Results of the Black Stars B team were also not the best, as they lost 4-3 on aggregate to Burkina Faso in the CHAN qualifiers.

On the African rankings, though, Ghana moved a step upwards after emerging as the eight-ranked team on the continent.

There is also a change at the summit of the global ranking, as Brazil have been usurped by the ever impressive Germany national team.
