But with three months, Ghana continue to perform poorly on the Federation Internationale de Football Association ranking.

And Namibia are the best movers of the month climbing up 20 places from 156 to 136. It is also India's highest ranking under Constantine.

Nigeria dropped one place from 38th place to 39th place in July ranking following their shocking 2-0 home loss to South Africa in a 2018 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) qualifier.

The Maltese national side has been in a steady decline over the past months.
