Zambia end year on high on FIFA Rankings
Zambia has climbed one place up on the latest FIFA/Coca Cola World Rankings released in Zurich, Switzerland on Thursday.
The Chipolopolo Boys are now ranked 74th and 15th in the World and on the Continent respectively.
In June, Zambia had its worst ever ranking after 99th position in the World but fortunately the Southern Africa powerhouse recorded back to back wins over Algeria in the World Cup qualifiers as well as unbeaten run in the CHAN qualifiers saw them rise.
Morocco 2018 CHAN opponents Ivory Coast are the best ranked team in Group B on 61st while Uganda is just a place below Zambia.
Namibia are ranked 118.
Namibia and Zambia are also in the same Group (K), alongside Guinea Bissau and Mozambique for the Cameroon 2019 African Cup of Nations qualifiers.
The West African are ranked 86 while the Black Mambas are 110th.
A good showing at the CHAN tournament will see Zambia break into the top 10 bracket on the Continent.
Meanwhile Zambia is the top ranked side in Southern Africa.
