Ghana appreciated by just one place on the latest Fifa/Coca Cola rankings for the month of September.
The Black Stars are now ranked 31st best in the world rankings released on Wednesday.
The four-time African champions however lost their second best ranking on the African continent to Algeria.
Ghana gathered only seven points in the month under review to bring their total haul to 714.
The Black Stars will however get the chance to improve on their positioning when they host Malawi in the first leg of the final 2013 Nations Cup qualifier on Saturday at the Accra Sports Stadium.
The position could be further improved if Ghana beats Liberia in an international friendly three days after the Malawi qualifier in Monrovia.
World Champions Spain and Cote D’Ivoire remain no.1 in the World and Africa rankings respectively.
