Ghana moves up in latest FIFA ranking

By Vincent Ashitey

The Black Stars of Ghana have moved up one place to 46th in the latest FIFA ranking.

The Black Stars could not improve the 1439 points accumulated in the previous month due to international matches not being played but still jumped one place to be tied with Costa Rica placed 46th in the latest edition of the FIFA ranking.

On the continental level, the Black Stars still remain on the sixth position, behind Senegal, Tunisia, Nigeria, Algeria and Morocco respectively.
