Sierra Leone has dropped 16 places down in the latest FIFA world rankings released by the world football governing body, FIFA.
The rankings, which were published last Thursday October 1, show Sierra Leone falling from 105 to 121 in the world football, to sit behind the likes of Lithuania, Cuba, Belize, Dominican Republic and Niger, respectively.
Unlike the September 3 classification in which the country fell from 104 to 105 after recording total points of 304 (303.69), it only registered 286 points (285.81) in the October standings.
Also, in the African classification, Sierra Leone dropped six places from 30th position to 36th.
The world rankings are determined by ranking points which are on offer in each international fixture the countries’ national associations play with the number of points awarded depending on aspects such as the importance of the match, the strength of the opposition, and the strength of the confederation.
