Tom Saintfiet and Gambia failed to go further than their last month’s height in the latest Fifa rankings, Foroyaa Sport can report.

Gambia’s September plummet was instigated by the two-legged defeat to Angola which ended the West Africans hopes of sealing spot in the group stage qualifiers for the 2022 Qatar World Cup.

The Scorpions dropped five places occupying 166th in the world, the same strata they managed October 2018.

It was thought they would climb up a step or so in this October’s rankings, but the Scorpions failed to register any gains, sitting stagnant on 166th in the globe even after scraping past a lowly Djibouti in the preliminary play-offs on penalties.

The result means Gambia also remain at 47th in Africa ahead of only Chad, Djibouti, South Sudan, Somalia, Eritrea, Seychelles, Sao Tome e Principe–rarely any footballing hotbeds.
