Morocco’s performances during its recent friendly and CAN qualifier games may be the reason behind the disappointing spot on the ranking.
FIFA published its November rankings for national squads today, november 28.
The list shows Morocco in the middle of the list globally, ranking 42nd out of 210. Morocco maintains its position among the five top African football teams, ranking the fifth in the continent.
In Africa, Senegal (20th globally) tops the list, with Tunisia (27th) second and Nigeria (31st) ranking third.
Algeria (35th globally) is fourth on the list, followed by Morocco.
At the confederation level, FIFA listed the Belgian national team first, followed by France, Brazil, and the UK.
Morocco’s lower position on th ranking comes after weak performances in their recent friendlies and qualifier matches for the African Cup of Nations (CAN).
Morocco finished its qualifier match against Mauritania on November 15 with a 0-0 result. The Atlas Lions, however, won their second qualifier match against Burundi with a scoreline of 3-0.
