Cameroon: Indomitable lions lose four places in recent FIFA rankings of national football teams

Despite being African champions, coupled with the fact that, the  lions  are just from representing the Continent in a major international competition, the team has lose four places in the FIFA ranking of the month of July 2017.  Cameroon which  hitherto was ranked 2nd  in Africa, now occupies the 5th position and 36th  in the world retreating four places backward.

Some football pundits and observers predicts the premature exit of the lions from the confederations cup could be the raison d'être of the team's fall from the rankings of the world governing football body, FIFA. But on the other hand, many still finds it difficult to understand why even when Cameroon won the African cup of Nations (AFCON)2017 in Gabon, they were ranked 2nd  behind their runners up Egypt. Nonetheless, the criteria for ranking are the sole prerogative of the supreme organ in charge of the management of global football.

In the African continent, Egypt is ranked 1st and 24th  in the world, followed by the 2017 AFCON semi finalist, Senegal who is 27th in the world and DR Congo comes 3rd and 28th in the world. Tunisia, Cameroon, Nigeria, Burkina Faso, Algeria, Ghana and Cote D'Ivoire makes up the 10 best teams in the continent.

Meanwhile at the global level, Germany has regained its top position as the best football team in the world following their new title as champions of the confederations cup coupled with the world cup title they are keeping. Brazil, Argentina, Portugal, Switzerland, Poland, Chile, Colombia, France and Belgium forms the bond of the ten most strongest football nations on the planet. The greatest surprise amongst the ten is Poland which is considered as a football underdog in Europe and even in the world.

The next ranking comes up on the 10th of August 2017.
