Ghana’s national football team, the Black Stars enjoyed a jump in the latest FIFA rankings, climbing four places to 64th. This positive movement follows their impressive victories over Mali and Central African Republic in recent World Cup qualifiers.

Otto Addo’s men displayed resilience, coming from behind to defeat Mali 2-1 before securing a convincing 4-3 home win against Central African Republic. These results have not only boosted Ghana’s World Cup qualification prospects but also propelled them up the FIFA rankings, both globally and within Africa.

The Black Stars have moved two places higher on the continental scale, transitioning from 14th to 12th in Africa.

On the global stage, Argentina retain their top position, reflecting their continued strong performances. France hold firm in second place, while Belgium climb a spot to third. England, however, slip down to fourth after previously occupying third.

The June rankings showcase a dynamic landscape, with significant movement across the board. This is unsurprising, considering the recent flurry of international fixtures, including World Cup qualifiers across Africa, Asia, and North and Central America, alongside warm-up matches for the European Championships and continental tournaments in South America and Oceania.

While the top three remain unchanged, there’s been a reshuffle beneath them. Brazil climb a position to fourth place, while England drops to fifth. Portugal, Netherlands, and Spain maintain their spots in the top ten, with Croatia edging past Italy for ninth place.

Beyond the top ten, there are numerous eye-catching surges. Ghana’s four-place jump is impressive, but they’re not alone. Honduras, Haiti, Curaçao, and Benin have all climbed four positions, while Namibia leads the way with a remarkable nine-place ascent.

The positive movements continue throughout the rankings. Mozambique, Madagascar, North Korea, Sudan, Nicaragua, and Gibraltar have all been rewarded for recent performances, climbing the table. Liberia, however, takes the crown for the most significant improvement, rising a staggering ten places. The Lone Stars remain undefeated throughout 2024.
