Lone Star who were ranked 144th globally last month, also slipped in the continent where they are now listed 46th but remain 13th in the WAFU region.

Liberia’s poor performance was largely contributed by Lone Stars two back-to-back 2022 Fifa World Cup qualifying loss to Cape Verde.

In the first match, Lone Stars lost 2-1 to the Blue Sharks on October 7 at the Ohene Djan Sports Stadium in Accra, Ghana.

Cape Verde sent Liberia packing from the World Cup qualification race after winning the return leg 1-0 in Praia on October 10.

Liberia went into the two fixtures having risen six places to 144th in the world courtesy of a 1-0 win over Central African Republic in September.

On their hand, Central African Republic’s 1-0 win away to Nigeria on October 7 have seen them rise nine places to occupy position 144 in the world.

In Africa Senegal is the best ranked team followed by Tunisia and Morocco as the leading three countries in the continent.

Belgium has retained the top spot while Brazil, France, Italy and England complete the top-five positions globally.

The rankings are determined by respective team’s performance during the international FIFA calendar where teams that win their matches gain points while losers drop.
