By Ransford Maclean

On Thursday 16th July the international body for Football, FIFA has released the Sierra Leone’s national football team remains at 118th with 1,115 points.

This ranking has also placed Leone Stars care-taker boss John Kiester to fall to 30th place in the Continental order.

Their last international outing ended in 1-0 defeat against the Squirrel of Benin in Matchday two of the 2021 African Nation Cup qualifiers in November 2019.

Sierra Leone’s position remained unchanged since April as the world battles the widespread COVID-19 pandemic and all international football fixtures, including friendlies, were put on hold.

Belgium remains top of the world ahead of France and Brazil, while England and Uruguay are 4th and 5th respectively.

In Africa, Nigeria ranked third-best behind Senegal and Tunisia. The next FIFA/Coca-Cola World Ranking will be published on 17 September 2020.
