Sports Feature Sports Shepolopolo Edge Closer to FIFA Top 100

Shepolopolo’s consistent rise on the quarterly FIFA Women’s Rankings released on December 13 continued and end the year with their best-ever placing.

Shepolopolo ended 2019 at number 106 in the World, rising four places from September’s rankings.

This is after jumping nine places three months ago to 110 thanks to their unbeaten run in the 2020 Olympic Games qualifiers heading into January’s final round decider against Cameroon.

Shepolopolo could enter the top ten for the first time in their history when the next rankings are posted this February after they wrap-up their Tokyo qualifiers against Cameroon.

Bruce Mwape’s team, who are 11th on the CAF rankings, are just four notches behind Congo-Brazzaville who are 10th in Africa while 9th placed Algeria are 84th in the World.

January’s Olympic Games decider opponents Cameroon are number two in Africa and 49th in the World.
