The Island nation is 51st in African standing.Interestingly, 2018 FIFA World Cup winners, France, climbed to the summit of the much-changed world ranking in the first edition of the global ladder since a new formula took effect.Just three points, however, separate Les Bleus from Russia 2018 semi-finalists Belgium (2nd, up 1), while World Cup runners-up Croatia (4th, up 16) have equaled their record ranking position, last reached in June 2013. Uruguay is fifth.England occupies sixth place while Portugal is seventh, Switzerland dropped two places to eight while Spain moved up one place to ninth position, with Denmark also tied on ninth place but with an inferior point difference.Sweden (13th, up 11), and World Cup hosts Russia (49th, up 21).Naturally, there are losses as well as gains, with previous leaders Germany (15th, down 14) among several sides to suffer for group-stage elimination in Russia. Poland (18th, down 10), Peru (20th, down 9) and Costa Rica and Iceland (joint-32nd, down 9 and 10 respectively) also slipped down the table on the back of disappointing World Cup campaigns.According to FIFA, the formula, which was approved by the FIFA Council in June after a lengthy period of testing, ‘relies on adding/subtracting points won or lost for a game to/from the previous point totals rather than averaging game points over a given time period as in the previous version of the Ranking.“The changes, of which there are several, include the fact that inactive teams now preserve their point totals, with no devaluation of older games. Points are dropped, however, from losing or drawing against weaker opposition, with the only exception to this rule matches in knockout rounds of major competitions such as the FIFA World Cup”, the statement on FIFA’s official website explained.The next FIFA world ranking will be published on 20 September, 2018.AFRICA’S TOP 10TunisiaSenegalCongo DRGhanaMoroccoCameroonNigeriaB’FasoMaliCape VerdeShare this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram Duro IkhazuagbeSuper Eagles dropped one spot from 48th to 49th place in the August FIFA Ranking released tHURSday as the world football governing body introduced a new formula for the grading of performance in the Beautiful Game.The three-time African champions who won just one match and lost two at the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia, remain seventh best football playing nation in the continental ranking with a total 1410 points accumulation for August.last_img read more

GOC begins work on Amasaman land

However, a wall built around it to deter encroachers from invading the land.The current administration of the GOC led by Mr Ben Nunoo Mensah is keen on bringing life back onto the site for Ghana to have her share of the OlympiAfrica Center.In view of this, GOC has secured a deal with Decker Engineering and Construction Limited to begin earthworks on the land to make it ready for the necessary architectural works to take place.The GOC held a media tour on the site for the media to have first-hand information on the project and the various facilities that would be built on the site.The President, Mr Ben Nunoo Mensah said Decker would clear and level the whole land for free and also prepare it for the first building to be erected on it. He said the GOC did not have the funding for the whole project but called on corporate Ghana to come on board to assist in giving the youth of Amasaman and the country as a whole a place to exhibit their talents.“We have great ideas but funding is the issue so any company that has the development of the youth at heart should come on board to partner with the GOC,” he said.Nunoo Mensah said the Association of National Olympic Committees of Africa (ANOCA) has agreed to give the GOC $150,000 to begin the work on the site.He, however, added that ANOCA has granted them permission to solicit for funds from corporate bodies to support the project and in return get a naming right for whichever project they support.The Municipal Chief Executive Officer of Ga West Assembly, Hon. Clement Wilkinson also added that he was delighted the project has begun and assured his office’s support in realisation the dream. He said his office would also give a portion of their Assembly’s consolidated fund to support the project because when it is completed his constituents would be the first to benefit.Architect in charge of the project, Mr. S.M Quartey from Atelier Architects mentioned that the first phase of the project would an office complex which would house the administrative part of the center and would comprise of offices, kitchen and a conference room.He noted that the next phase would be about five multi-purpose pitches plus an Olympic size football field with tartan tracks.
