Ghana, four-time winners of the Africa Cup of Nations in the latest FIFA world rankings aren’t considered among the top 10 countries on the continent.

The Stars are now 61st, after being previously ranked 60th. This means the Black Stars are still the least-ranked country heading into the 2022 World Cup.
