FIFA Rankings: Zambia hit record low as Swaziland, Mauritania overtake Chipolopolo
Zambia has fallen seven places on the FIFA Coca-Cola World Ranking to stand on position 97 according to the rankings released today.
The Chipolopolo gained one place last month but their failure to record good results in he past few months which saw them draw with Zimbabwe has seen the former African Champions tumble to a record low of 26th position in Africa.
Zambia is now behind the likes of Swaziland, Mauritania and Namibia having won only one match against Uganda in their last five games since Wedson Nyirenda took charge of the team.
Zambia’s opponents in the World Cup qualifiers Algeria, Cameroon and Nigeria are all in the top 11 in Africa with Cameroon ranking 33rd in the world and third in Africa.
