Morocco, who have become the first in Africa in the previous FIFA ranking since December 2022, have maintained their position in the list unveiled this Thursday, April 6, 2023. But several African countries at the top, like Cameroon and Nigeria will give in to others.

Morocco is in the lead. The African Champions, Senegal become 2nd, followed respectively by Tunisia, Algeria and Egypt.

Thus, Nigeria who were 5th in the continent, lost this position to Egypt.

Cameroon 42nd, have lost 9 places in the world. Samuel Eto’o’s country suffered the biggest drop after registering just one point from a possible six in a two-legged tie against the Namibians. The Indomitable lions therefore become 7th, behind Nigeria.

For this ranking, the biggest climbers of all were the Central African Republic (122nd, up 10), who enjoyed a double-digit progression thanks to successive victories that left them well placed to qualify for a first ever AFCON.

Namibia (106th, up 7), Malaysia (138th, up 7) and Gambia (120th, up 6) also had a memorable month.

At world level, Argentina are back at the top of the FIFA/Coca-Cola World Ranking for the first time in more than six years.

The world champions (1st, up 1) overtook Brazil (3rd, down 2) after securing friendly wins over Panama and Curacao as their former rivals lost to Morocco. France (2nd, up 1) also moved ahead of the Brazilians after beating the Netherlands and the Republic of Ireland in their first UEFA EURO qualifiers.
