Zambia has dropped eight places on the FIFA rankings released on Thursday.
Chipolopolo plummeted from 60th in the World to 68th as of June 4, 2015.
Zambia’s fall follows their failure to defend the Cosafa Cup in South Africa where they were eliminated at the quarterfinal stage by Namibia 5-4 on post-match penalties before finishing 6th in the Plate final where they lost Malawi.
Malawi who beat them 1-0 in the Plate final moved up two places from 97 to 95 while eventual 2015 Cosafa Cup champions Namibia have jumped nine places to 105.
Meanwhile, Zambia are 17th on the CAF rankings for June.
Zambia’s 2017 Africa Cup Group E qualifiers opponents Congo-Brazzaville are 47th in the World, Kenya are at 123 while their guests on June 13 Guinea Bissau are at 155.
