GHANA IMPROVES IN THE FIFA RANKINGS FOR AUGUST

Ghana has climbed up two places when the new FIFA ranking for the month of August was released on Thursday.

The Black Stars have seen some improvement for the first time in almost three years though they failed to qualify for the 2018 FIFA World Cup.

With points of 1424, Ghana is now placed 45th from their previous 47th position after Coach Kwasi Appiah took over from Avram Grant.

Ghana will play Kenya in the African Cup qualifiers on September 8 in Nairobi

France have climbed to the summit of a much-changed FIFA/Coca-Cola World Ranking in the first edition of the global ladder since a new ranking formula took effect and Les Bleus became world champions.

Tunisia leads the table in Africa and placed 24th in the world followed by Senegal and DR Congo respectively. Ghana lies 4th in Africa.
