The quartet of Angola, Comoros, Gambia and Morocco are among countries that improved their positions in FIFA’s latest world ranking for the men’s national teams as it concerns Africa.

The ranking for November released on Thursday by the world football governing body lists Mozambique, Angola, Sudan, Comoros and Gambia as the biggest climbers.

“Further down the table, the big climbers included the African quintet of Mozambique (117th, up 5), Angola (125th, up 5), Sudan (127th, up 8), Comoros (143rd, up 5) and Gambia (166th, up 7),” FIFA stated on its website on Thursday.

Morocco also moved up seven places into the top-three in Africa.

SENEGAL MOVE TO TOP SPOT

Senegal’s Terranga Lions are now number one in Africa and number 23 in the world while Tunisia drop to second place.

Three-time African champions Nigeria are in fourth place but remain static in number 44 in the world.

Others in the top-10 in Africa are Congo DR, Ghana, Cameroon, Egypt, Burkina Faso and Mali.

Former African champions like Ivory Coast, Algeria, South Africa and Zambia are outside of the top-10 ranking on the continent as Somalia continue to prop up the rear.
