Morocco is getting closer to the top 20. The Atlas Lions, who won their first African Cup of Nations match against Ghana (1-0), should still do well in the next FIFA rankings.
The Moroccan football selection is currently second in Africa in the latest FIFA rankings and 28th globally. After the success of its first match in CAN 2021, Vahid Halilhodzic’s group should gain 4 places and find themselves in 24th place in the standings.
Morocco while remaining second on the continental scale gained 4.43 points, rising to 1530 points compared to the last ranking last November.
The Atlas Lions won against Ghana in their first African Cup of Nations match thanks to a goal from Soufiane Boufal (84th), which allows them to take the advantage in the competition.
To consolidate its leadership, Morocco will have an appointment with the Comoros on Friday January 14 for its second match of the first round of CAN 2021 in Cameroon.
