Cameroon dethrone Ghana at number two in women's football

By GNA

Accra, June 12, GNA – Cameroon has dethroned Ghana as the second best women's football team on the African continent.

According to the latest rankings released by world soccer governing body, Federation of International Football Associations (FIFA) last week, the Indomitable Lionesses are ranked 50th in the world, one place above the Black Queens.

The latest ranking, which comes barely few days to this weekend's Africa Women's Championship (AWC) qualifier between Cameroon and Ghana, confirms the rising status of the former in the women's game.

The first leg in Accra a fortnight ago ended one all and the Black Queens must win in Yaoundé to qualify for the AWC scheduled for Equatorial Guinea in November.

Also bound for the London 2012 Olympic Games together with South Africa, the Cameroonians strode to their highest ever position on the FIFA rankings, which places them behind Nigeria continentally.

The development adds to the dwindling fortunes of the Black Queens who have placed second fiddle to the Super Falcons since the institution of the rankings.

The Queens highest ever ranking was 48th position, achieved exactly four years ago.

Nigeria, the only African team in the world's top 30 are ranked 27.

South Africa, Equatorial Guinea, Cote d'Ivoire, Morocco, Tunisia, Algeria and Senegal complete the top 10 ranked teams in Africa.
