Gambia maintains position at FIFA Coca-Cola World ranking

Apr 14, 2020, 3:15 PM

In the FIFA Coca Cola World Ranking released in April, The Gambia amongst other nations have not made any move on the standings. This is due to the ongoing measures to combat the spread of COVID-19 resulting in little football of late and, consequently, next to no movement in the latest FIFA/Coca-Cola World Ranking.

The country remained 46 in Africa and 159 in the global ranking as the Scorpions most recent position joint with Grenada and with just a little below Dominican Republic on 158.

This month’s rankings affect all Continental Confederations and as such a whole raft of international fixtures, including qualifiers for the FIFA World Cup and other major tournaments, have been postponed, while new dates have been put in place for both the men’s and Women’s events.

Senegal are number one in Africa and 20 on the global stage while Tunisia, Nigeria and Algeria follow in the order. Somalia, Seychelles and Eritrea also remain at the bottom zone.

Belgium are leaders on the global stage followed by France, Brazil and England all maintaining their previous spots. Amid this upheaval, the ranking has been impacted by just four matches – all friendlies – and, as such, the table remains virtually identical to the previous edition.

The next FIFA/Coca-Cola World Ranking will be published on 11th June, 2020. Source-GFF
