Warriors Continue To Fall Down The Rankings

Zimbabwe is now placed 106th in the world compared to 104 when the rankings were last updated last month.

This follows their surprise 1-0 defeat at home by Guinea in a 2014 World Cup qualifier at the National Sports Stadium Sunday.

The Warriors have been on a free fall since their failure to qualify for the 2012 Africa Cup of Nations and this has continued with three successive defeats starting with the loss against Cape Verde last year and the shock defeat at the hands of Burundi and Guinea.

The Warriors have also dropped one place down the African football rankings and are now on position 26 having been on 25 the previous month due to inactivity.

The team is travelling to Mozambique this weekend for another World Cup qualifier where defeat for the Warriors will not do any good, not only to their reputation but also to their world ranking, which is sinking by each game the Warriors are playing.

World rankings are very important especially when teams are being seeded for international competitions.

Ivory Coast is Africa’s top football team followed by Ghana’s Black Stars while Algeria has moved to third position. The Ivory Coast are also placed 16th in the world,

Spain remains the world’s top football nation followed by Uruguay and German while 2014 World Cup hosts Brazil are in fifth position.
