There have been some changes in the ranks but Belgium still remains in the lead. The Ivory Coast after having achieved good performances, is positioned in 9th place in the African ranking.
The Elephants are holding the fruits of their fine performances during the last matches played. Indeed, Côte d’Ivoire left 10th place, 59th in the previous ranking. It now occupies the 57th place with 2 places gained. To date, the Ivorians have counted 1398 points. At the continental level, Senegal remains clinging to its first place, always followed by Tunisia.
