Ghana remain unchanged in world and Africa ranking

Ghana preserved their 37th place in the latest Fifa World Rankings for January and also remained Africa’s 5th best nation.

The Black Stars were unable to accumulate points despite beating Portuguese second-tier side Olhanense on Wednesday, a day before the rankings were released.

Coach Avram Grant and his charges can move up in next month’s ranking if they do well at the upcoming Africa Cup of Nations in Equatorial Guinea.

Ghana face a difficult campaign at the tournament after drawing Senegal, Algeria and South Africa.
