Flames static on FIFA World Ranking due to COVID-19

Flames have maintained position 123 on the FIFA World Ranking which has not changed as
the ongoing measures to combat the spread of COVID-19 have resulted in little football of late.

A whole raft of international fixtures, including Flames’ back to back AFCON Qualifers against Burkina Faso last month have been postponed.

Amid this upheaval, the ranking has been impacted by just four matches – all friendlies – and, as such, the table remains virtually identical to the previous edition. The solitary change sees South Sudan move into joint-168th position with Bermuda after the latter dropped a ranking point because of a 2-0 defeat in Jamaica (48th, unchanged) on 11 March.

The five other teams to have been involved in friendly matches since the global ladder’s last update are Panama (played twice – 81st, unchanged), Uzbekistan (85th, unchanged), Belarus (87th, unchanged), Guatemala (130th, unchanged) and Nicaragua (151st, unchanged).
