The Atlas Lions performance in the Morocco-Argentina friendly game and the last CAF qualifier game might be the reason for the latest ranking.
The football team also lost places in the African regional ranking, sitting in fourth behind Senegal (first), Tunisia (second), and Nigeria (third).
FIFA’s February ranking put Morocco 43rd globally and third in Africa.
Morocco’s position was impacted by the Atlas Lions’ latest two games in March. The Atlas Lions recently played their last Africa Cup of Nations qualifier match against Malawi, which ended 0-0, on March 22.
The Atlas Lions also lost their friendly game against Argentina 0-1 on March 26.
The Atlas Lions are now preparing for the continental championship, known as AFCON or Africa Cup of Nations (CAN), which will begin in Egypt in June.
