The last FIFA/Coca-Cola Women’s World Ranking has confirmed Ghana as Africa's second best side.
The Black Queens, who finished 50th on the overall world table missed the chance to equal their all-time highest of 42nd, achieved in 2008.
Ghana ended the year with 1457 points after going one place up in the December rankings. The Women's ranking is released quarterly.
On the African table, the Black Queens are second to Nigeria followed by Equatorial Guinea and Cameroon.
The current women’s world ranking includes 135 countries, the highest number since December 2007 when a new record was set with 150 teams.
