The Warriors’ 2-1 loss to Burundi on the 29th of last month in an AFCON qualifier first leg has pushed Zimbabwe out of the world’s best 100 footballing nations.


In Africa, Zimbabwe is now on number 27, lower than such countries as Rwanda, Mozambique and Uganda.

While Zimbabwe is now being haunted by that loss in Bujumbura, The Swallows of Bujumbura jumped up 11 places and now sit on number 132.

The Elephants of Cote d’Ivoire are still the continent’s top team followed by Ghana and Algeria.

African Champions, Zambia are still on number four in the continent but have moved two places up the world rankings despite being inactive in the period under review.

Mali, Gabon, Libya, Tunisia, Nigeria and South Africa complete the top 10 in Africa.

Congo are the continent’s biggest movers after climbing 29 places to sit on number 101 in the world and 24 in Africa.

World Champions, Spain are still the world’s best. The Netherlands’ 3-2 victory over England has enabled them to once again overtake Germany to reclaim the second position.

The Germans, who lost 2-1 to France, are now number three. Uruguay, Brazil, Portugal, England, Argentina, Italy and Croatia complete the best 10 sides in the world.
