Ghana’s defeat against Kenya in the 2019 Africa Nations Cup has seen them slip from the first 50 of the FIFA ranking for the month of September after their loss to Kenya.
The Black Stars who were rated 45 place have now dropped to 51st position on the FIFA ranking for the month of September.
Ghana shockingly were defeated one nil in their clash against the Harambee Stars on 8 September in the 2019 Africa Nations Cup qualifiers.
The biggest leap in terms of points is in Africa, however, with Kenya (107th, up 5) clinching 22 points – 17.9 of which thanks to a 1-0 win over Ghana in CAF Africa Cup of Nations qualifying.
As a result of that defeat to Kenya, the Black Stars join Slovenia (61st, down 6), as the biggest fallers of the month.
Ghana’s highest ever performance since the ranking’s introduction in August 1993 remains a 14 place in February 2008, while their worst placement was an 89 position reached in June 2004.
Belgium, occupy the top spot alongside 2018 World Cup winners France, which means that the top spot is currently being shared for the first time in the table’s 25-year history.
A pair of wins for the Red Devils (1st, up 1), including their first in the UEFA Nations League over Iceland (36th, down 4), has brought them level with Les Bleus (1st, unchanged) on 1,729 points.
