Accra (Ghana), Oct 17 (IANS) Ghana maintained their 52nd position in the latest FIFA world rankings, despite gaining five points in the point buildup.

The Black Stars, who also retained their eighth slot on the continental pecking order, increased their total point accumulation from 646 points in September to 651 points this month on Monday, reports Xinhua news agency.

The ranking comes in the backdrop of Ghana’s inability to qualify for the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia after drawing goalless against Uganda at the penultimate qualifier in Kampala on October 7.

Ghana, however, defeated the Green Falcons of Saudi Arabia 3-0 in a FIFA international friendly last Tuesday.

Leading the African ranking is Tunisia, ranked 28th in the world, with Egypt (30) and Senegal (32) at the second and third positions, respectively.
