The West African nation has moved from 68th position to 64th in the world, although they still remain outside the top 10 in Africa.

Otto Addo’s side dropped one place in the FIFA ranking released in April after failing to win any of their international friendlies against Nigeria and Uganda in March.

However, Ghana turned up during the June international break, where they secured wins against Mali and the Central African Republic (CAR).

These victories helped the Black Stars to give their World Cup qualification hopes a huge boost, having moved joint-top of Group I alongside Comoros on nine points.

It has also positively affected the country’s place on the FIFA ranking for June, as they now occupy the 64th position in the world.

In Africa, however, Morocco continue to lead as the highest-ranked team, followed by Senegal and fellow North Africans Egypt.
