SCORPIONS RISE IN FIFA RANKINGS

The Gambia has gained three places up in the latest FIFA/Coca-Cola World rankings to lie at 158 in the world and 50 in Africa.

The rankings, released by world football governing body, FIFA, on Thursday morning, places the Scorpions just above Mauritius, São Tomé e Príncipe, Djibouti, Seychelles, Eritrea and Somalia on the African continent.
The rise could be attributed to the recent outing of the local team that got booted out of the 2018 CHAN qualifiers by Mali.

Namibia were the month’s biggest climbers to be ranked at 136 while Egypt continues to top the African standing followed by DR Congo, Senegal, Tunisia and Cameroon respectively.
The next FIFA/Coca-Cola World rankings will be released on September . 14
