Super Falcons drop in latest Federation Internationale de Football Association ranking despite winning AWCON title

The draw for the 2019 Fifa Women's World Cup was held at the the La Seine Musicale in Paris, France.

Cameroon moved up three places in the ranking to place second in Africa and 46th in the World, while the Banyana Banyana of South Africa who also moved up two spots finished the year in third position despite finishing runners-up at the AWCON tournament.

Banyana entered the hat as one of three representatives from Africa.

The top 10 countries in Africa include Cote D'Ivoire (fifth), Equatorial Guinea (sixth), Morocco (seventh), Algeria (eighth), Mali is ninth while Senegal is 10th.

In addition, the US remain the number one women football nation and they are followed by Germany, France, England, and Canada in top five.

Australia were among the top seeds, but Alen Stajcic's side must face Brazil and Italy as well as Jamaica in Group C.

Banyana will come up against World number 2 ranked Germany, Spain and China in their group, which is arguably the "group of death".

The next FIFA/Coca-Cola Women's World Ranking will be made public in March 29, 2019.

France, as host country, is automatically placed into position A1 in Pot 1, and no group is allowed to contain more than one team from each confederation.
