For the third successive time, Ghana have seen an upward movement on the World Fifa Ranking, following the publication of June’s edition on Thursday.
The new table sees the Black Stars move by three places from 50th to the 47th spot, with an accompanying increase in total accumulated points from 603 to 624.
The Black Stars surged by three places in April before moving up by one spot last month.
The latest rise is largely premised on James Kwesi Appiah’s outfit’s 2-0 victory over World Cup-bound Japan in an international friendly last week.
The four-time African champions will play another World Cup-bound side, Iceland, on Thursday.
On continental level, Ghana have moved up by two places from eight to sixth, ahead of Nigeria, Cameroon (49), Burkina Faso (52) and Mali (64) in the top 10.
Ghana’s highest ever performance since the ranking’s introduction in August 1993 remains a 14 place in February 2008, while their worst placement was an 89 position reached in June 2004.
The ranking will be updated on July 19.
