The Malawi national soccer team, the Flames, have dropped nine places on the latest rankings released by the World Soccer governing Federation, FIFA.
They are now on position 126 from 117 last month and the team has also dropped to position 34 on the African ladder.
In its latest match Malawi drew one-all against less fancied Lesotho two weeks ago.
Local Soccer pundits are describing the Flames drop as unsurprising judging by the team’s performance which has seen them win twice in eleven matches under the tutelage of Belgian Coach Ronny Van Geneugden.
The team is expected to drop further on the rankings in the next few months as it is not going to be active until at least February next year.
Germany is the number one team in the world while Senegal tops on the African continent.
