1 July 2011: See the Namibia update.

Only two matches left involving African teams: Colombia - Senegal and Iran - Madagascar. However, both teams are locked in their respective pots. African teams have to habit of playing often outside the official match dates, so if that happens, I will update the pots.

This is the final July 2011 ranking (based on the current list of fixtures) - only for CAF teams participating in the World Cup qualifiers (that's why you won't see Mauritania).

Rank - Team - Points
1 Côte d'Ivoire            922

  1. I've seen a lot of people over the months talk about rankings and say something to the effect of "Even below the might of Burkina Faso!" That needs to stop. That team has made great strides and shown great consistency. Their U17 team won the African U17 Championship too.
