MOZAMBIQUE

Mozambique

Confederation: Africa
FIFA Ranking: 105
Stadium: Estádio do Zimpeto
Colours: Red and Black
Head Coach: Mart Nooij
Most Capped Player: Tico-Tico (83)
Fun Fact: Despite their lowly status in the FIFA rankings, Mozambique were the ‘Best Movers’ in the rankings in 2007. Following a series of strong performances, including a 3-1 win over Burkina Faso and a 0-0 draw with Senegal, the Black Mambas were catapulted from 135th in the rankings to 111th in the space of a month. Unfortunately for Mozambique, their achievement went entirely unnoticed as FIFA had discontinued its official ‘Best Mover of the Year’ award the year before.
