Ghana have appreciated by two places in latest rating by the Federation of International Football Federation.

Ghana benefited immensely from their semi-finals berth in the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations during the February ranking.

But without any football action before the ratings for March they could only manage two places up by moving from 45th position to 43rd place.

Ghana remained in the same position on the African continent- 9th and Egypt maintained their top spot as the highest ranked nation in Africa.

Argentina and Brazil remain in first and second respectively, while reigning FIFA World Cup champions Germany stay third.

The top 20 are unchanged from February except for two notable exceptions. Poland (12, plus 2) reached their best ever world ranking, joining Wales in joint 12th position for March. Egypt meanwhile (20, plus 3), broke into the top 20 while Iceland (23, minus 3) fell  thanks largely to a 1-0 defeat in a friendly against Mexico played on 8 February. An honourable mention goes to Burkina Faso (36, plus 2) who, like Poland, reached their best ever position in the Ranking.
