June Fifa rankings: Ghana maintains position; see top 10 African countries

The Black Stars of Ghana maintained their position from March in the latest Fifa world rankings released on Thursday, June 23, 2022.

Ghana was ranked 60th globally and 11th in Africa, making the Black Stars the least ranked nation to qualify for the 2022 Fifa World Cup to be played in November and December in Qatar.

The four-time African champions beat Madagascar 3-0 in their opening 2023 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier before being held to a 1-1 draw by the Central African Republic in the second game.

The Black Stars finished third at the 2022 Kirin Cup tournament earlier this June, after losing 4-1 to Japan in the semi-finals and beating Chile 3-1 on penalties to place third.

Senegal has maintained their number one place in Africa and moved from 20th to 18th in the world. Morocco also maintained their second place in Africa and moved from 24th in the world to 22nd.

Meanwhile, Tunisia has replaced Nigeria as the third-best nation in Africa, with Nigeria now moving to 4th. Cameroon completes the top five nations in Africa.
