Ghana shockingly tumble down in FIFA rankings despite huge CHAN success

Posted On Thursday, 13th February 2014
Ghana have shockingly dropped 13 places in the latest FIFA world rankings to 34th place and are down to 4th in Africa in a shambolic ranking released by the world governing body on Thursday.

The Black Stars have dropped 13 places in the latest FIFA rankings

Ghana have shockingly dropped 13 places in the latest FIFA world rankings to 34th place and are down to 4th in Africa in a shambolic ranking released by the world governing body on Thursday.

The ranking released by FIFA also showed the Black Stars losing its long held second position to Algeria and Cape Verde, who were both not in action in the past month.

And both countries have not achieved any better success than the Black Stars over the past month or in recent months, casting a huge doubt over FIFA’s ranking system.

FIFA just last month confirmed that they have agreed to add the CHAN tournament to its recognised A matches which are used for the monthly ranking of the national teams.

Despite the huge successes chalked by the local Black Stars by reaching the final of the tournament in South Africa, FIFA dropped the Black Stars by 13 places further damaging the credibility of the much-criticised ranking system by the governing body.

Nigeria have dropped six places to 47th in the latest world rankings, released by Fifa on Thursday.

The Afcon holders, who finished third at the recent Chan event in South Africa, are placed eighth on the continent, behind Côte d’Ivoire, Algeria, Cape Verde, Ghana, Egypt, Tunisia and Cameroon.

Globally, world and European champions Spain, Germany and Argentina remain the top three teams.

World top 10:
1 Spain
2 Germany
3 Argentina
4 Portugal
5 Colombia
6 Switzerland
7 Uruguay
8 Italy
9 Brazil
10 Netherlands

Africa top 10:
1 Côte d’Ivoire
2 Algeria
3 Cape Verde Islands
4 Ghana
5 Egypt
6 Tunisia
7 Cameroon
8 Nigeria
9 Mali
10 Burkina Faso

    Sometimes pple don’t get it but the simple truth is that white scholars are confused dummies!!! From their lies of visiting the moon to their lies of making HIV the sole cause of so called aids should tell everyone that white men are lies and dummies and is well documentated that blk pple have the sixth sense!!! Even simple mathematics involving calculating world ranking, they are confused and comes out everyday with diff formular and equations which can even confuse the fifa members themselves!! I wouldn’t be surprise if those people who comes out with the ranking can’t understand their formulae because white scholars are simply dummies and confused!! I can bet my life on this, that should we call any member or the chairman of the ranking committee and ask to explain how the ranking are done monthly, he ll make a big fool of himself to the world just as its legal committee has been losing epic battles in court of arbitration!! FIFA is just like any other uncle Sam organization and we know just like the UN are made up of confused members!! They are just there to please their masters and am surprise pple take them serious because their powers are only limited to so called third world countries but can’t to nothing to the most powerful like UEFA!!! They just there because of money just like HIV is there because of money but they all know that there is NO HIV!!!

  5. selfmade says:
