Ghana has dropped six places in the latest FIFA World Rankings following their embarrassing performance at the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations.

The Black Stars, who finished the 2023 year in the 61st position, have now dropped to 67th on the log globally while also falling further down on the African continent.

Ghana now occupies the 14th position on the CAF rankings with Cape Verde, South Africa, DR Congo all moving above the four-time AFCON winners.

The changes come following the completion of the 2023 AFCON which was hosted in Cote d'Ivoire with the Elephants staging a host and win campaign.

Ghana exited the group stage after picking up just two points from their three games played against Cape Verde, Egypt and Mozambique.

Amongst the African sides, Côte d’Ivoire (39th, up 10) reap the rewards of their continental triumph on home soil.

Beaten finalists Nigeria (28th, up 14) make significant strides but are no match for the Angola side they ousted in the last eight (93rd, up 24), who are the biggest climbers in the latest instalment of the global ranking.
