The Black Stars’ defeat to Egypt in the 2018 World Cup qualifiers cost the team a significant fall in the FIFA ranking for the month of November.

Ghana lost 2-0 to the Pharaohs of Egypt at the Borg El-Arab Stadium in Alexandria to lose grounds in Group E of the qualifiers.

Egypt leapfrogged ten places to the 36th position and Number 4 in Africa.

Senegal, despite losing 2-1 at South Africa, remains the continent’s highest ranked nation and 33rd in the world followed by Cote d’Ivoire and Tunisia, who are tied in the 34th position.
