Slip, slide in FIFA rankings Barbados moves to 170th; Trinidad to 99th
BARBADOS dropped two places and Trinidad and Tobago took a tumble in the latest FIFA rankings.
In the rankings released yesterday, Barbados moved down to 170, while Trinidad and Tobago slipped 16 places to 99th, fourth in the Caribbean Football Union rankings led by French nation Haiti.
Trinidad and Tobago have endured a recent tough run of results in their World Cup qualifying campaign. Earlier this month, they lost 2-1 to Honduras in Port of Spain before also going down 3-0 to Panama in Panama City, to suffer elimination from the competition.
They lie bottom of the six-team standings on three points with seven defeats and a single win, with two matches remaining in the tournament.
Meanwhile, Haiti jumped seven places to be 48th in the FIFA rankings, and continue at the top in CFU. They widened their gap on Jamaica who remained second in CFU but slipped four places in the world rankings to 61st.
Curacao were unmoved, remaining third in CFU and 86th in the FIFA rankings.
St Kitts enjoyed a healthy bounce, leaping 11 places to 114th in the world rankings to be sixth in CFU. Suriname, fifth in CFU, slipped four places overall to 111th in the world rankings.
Guyana also experienced positive movement, rising seven places to 156th to be eighth in CFU while Dominica also rose six spots to be 171st and 13th in the regional rankings. (CMC/HG)
