FIFA released their world rankings last week and African teams feel heavily ... ouch!
Cameroon dropped two places to 16th and are now the only African side in the top 20.
Nigeria were 17th but have fallen six places to 23rd in February's list.
The biggest decline sees African champions Egypt drop 15 places from 15th to 30th position.
The Pharaohs' slump in the table is due to less importance being placed on their results over the last three years - namely their successes at the African Cup of Nations in 2006 and 2008.
The wider decline in the rankings of African teams is caused by the fact that FIFA place more emphasis on recent results than those over the past four years.
Ghana's Black Stars are down 10 places to 35th, while Ivory Coast are down nine places to 36th.
The only non-movers from Africa in the top 50 are Morocco, who remain in 41st position.
The African sides that dropped down this month will be looking to improve on their positions in the upcoming final round of World Cup and African Cup of Nations qualifiers, which begin next month.
