Nigeria, Ghana fall in FIFA rankings; Egypt hold Africa's top spot

Egypt remain Africa's highest-ranked side in the latest edition of the FIFA world rankings, released on Thursday, while Nigeria and Ghana have dropped one place each.

The Pharaohs were defeated in the final of the Africa Cup of Nations in February, but are the only one of the continent's nations to find themselves in the world's top 25 teams, dropping four places to 24th.

They're followed by non-movers Senegal, who remain 27th in the overall standings, one ahead of the Democratic Republic of Congo.

Liverpool's Mohamed Salah is greatest ever Egyptian, says Mohamed Salah

"I wonder who is the greatest ever Egyptian?" I hear you ask. Well not to worry, Liverpool new boy Mohamed Salah has answered that question.

Indeed, the Reds' most expensive ever transfer (at least by Roma's calculations) was asked a number of quickfire questions in a short video posted on the club's official Twitter account.

When asked who he thought was the greatest ever person from his homeland, Egypt, Salah duly responds: "Me!"

We know he's telling the truth, too. Earlier in the video, Salah...
