FIFA Rankings: Cameroon Drops Three Places After World Cup Qualification

Paru le vendredi, 01 décembre 2023 14:01

The 2026 FIFA World Cup qualifiers have impacted Cameroon's position in the FIFA rankings, updated on Thursday, November 30, 2023, by world soccer's governing body.

The Indomitable Lions, who defeated Mauritius (3-0) at home on November 17 but ended with a 1-1 draw against Libya in Benghazi on November 21, have slipped three places to 46th in the world rankings. Despite this drop, Cameroon remains in the 7th place in Africa.

Morocco, the African semi-finalist at the recent Qatari World Cup, maintains its position as Africa's top-ranked team, and the 13th place worldwide a month and a half ahead of the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON). Senegal (20th worldwide), the reigning African champions and Cameroon's opponent at the coming AFCON, is the second-best African team,  ahead of Tunisia (28th worldwide). Algeria (30th) and Egypt (33rd) round out the African Top 5.

Côte d'Ivoire, host of the coming AFCON, has moved up two places from 52nd globally to 50th, thanks to its convincing World Cup qualifying victories over the Seychelles (9-0) and Gambia (2-0).

On the global stage, there are notable changes too. Argentina (1st) continues to dominate the rankings, followed by France (2nd). However, England (3rd, +1) has now climbed into third place, displacing Brazil (5th, -2), who fell after consecutive defeats to Colombia and Argentina. Belgium (4th, +1) completes the updated Top 5.

The FIFA world rankings for men's teams will be updated again on December 21, 2023.
