GUYANA MOVES UP TEN PLACES IN FIFA WORLD RANKINGS
16th September, 2016; Georgetown: Guyana has moved 10 places up the FIFA Men’s world rankings to one hundred and eighteenth (118th) place even as the Senior Men’s National team prepares for the Third rung of the Caribbean Football Union 2016 Scotiabank Men’s Caribbean Cup in October, 2016.
This ranking reflects the September release of the international standings and signals the progress made since the new executive has been at the helm of the Guyana Football Federation football (GFF).
President of the Guyana Football Federation (GFF), Wayne Forde, expressed his delight at the news. “This is indeed a proud moment for Guyana as a Football nation and a defining moment for a group of young men that I admire and respect dearly. They have sacrificed enormously and yet much more is being asked of them on the eve of what will surely be their greatest achievement. To the coaching staff, the employees of the Secretariat and the Executive Committee, congratulation and may God keep us all.”
Guyana’s next international engagement in the Caribbean Football Union’s 2016 Scotiabank Men’s Caribbean Cup against Suriname on October 8, followed by Jamaica in October 11, 2016.
