Even if it was prematurely out in the last 16 of the last AfCON in Egypt, Morocco climbs in the new FIFA rankings unveiled this Thursday.
The Atlas Lions now occupy the 41st place in the world, becoming the 5th African selection behind Algeria, Nigeria, Tunisia and Senegal.
The ranking is still dominated by Belgium ahead of Brazil and France. England, Uruguay, Portugal, Croatia, Colombia, Spain and Argentina complete the Top 10. Winner of his second AfCON, Algeria achieves a spectacular jump of 28 places.
