Ghana's position on the FIFA ranking table remained unchanged from the previous month.

The Black Stars are still placed 22nd on the overall table released today as the May edition of the FIFA/Coca-Cola World Ranking showed only a few changes.

Ghana's point accumulation also remained the same at 816 points.

The Black Stars, who begin their qualifying for the 2014 World Cup in June are still Africa's second best side behind Ivory Coast.

Algeria remain third with Mali taking the fourth position on the continental ranking table.

Spain continue to top the global ladder ahead of Germany and Uruguay, followed by the Netherlands and Portugal.

Though the May edition recorded few changes, FIFA expects next month's ranking to bring more movement with it, as friendlies will be played in Europe to warm up for UEFA EURO 2012 and another batch of 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazilâ„¢ qualifiers are set to influence the calculations.
