Morocco to jump at least 11 places in rankings, moving above Germany

Having made the World Cup semi-finals, the first African team to do so, Morocco are expected to jump nearly a dozen spots up FIFA’s world rankings after their performances in Qatar.

Morocco started the tournament in 22nd spot but, after wins over Spain, Portugal Belgium and Canada, the Atlas Lions have collected enough points to end the tournament in 11th place, and could go even higher should they beat France to reach the final this week.

That jump up the table will see the Atlas Lions move above a group of nations from whom far more was expected before the tournament in Qatar began last month, including four-time winners Germany as well as Uruguay, Denmark, Mexico, and Poland. This would also mean Morocco become the top-ranked African side, moving above current AFCON champions Senegal.
