0
474

The first world ranking of the year 2019 released by FIFA has not reserved major changes in terms of African selections.

 

Despite one less place, Senegal has retained its continental leadership (24th in the world with 1505 points). Tunisia loses two spots and is now 28th ahead of Morocco which occupies the 43rd place in this ranking.

Driven by Belgium, the world ranking still sees France, world champion, then Brazil to complete the podium.

And the Asian Nations Cup effect has allowed Qatar to leap into the world rankings of the best football nations.

Moreover, the top 20 has not undergone any change.

The Nigerian Super Eagles are 46th and last African team of this top 50 which ejected the Democratic Republic of Congo which loses its place (51st).

Egypt, which will host the next 2019 Africa Cup of Nations, is ranked 57th in this ranking.
