Senegal have ended 2018 as the highest rated African nation and the Super Eagles remain in the fourth position on the final Fifa world rankings of the year.
Senegal is Africa’s best team…
There has been little movement on the December rankings with very few international games having been played.
Zimbabwe (114), Sierra Leone (115) both moved up a single place thanks to the Philippines slipping two spots after two defeats since November’s rankings.
Guinea-Bissau also moved up one place to joint 120 with Tajikistan, who have also lost two matches since November.
The only other African nation to move on the latest list is Zambia, who fell one place to 83, as they were leapfrogged by Oman on the back of two wins in the last month.
