FIFA Rankings: Kenya drops further.



Kenya has registered yet another drop in the latest Coca Cola FIFA Rankings, released on Thursday 18 September, moving to position 111, seven places below the August rankings that placed Harambee Stars at position 104 in the world.

The slump is a continuation of the August stats which had seen Kenya move from position 95 to 104 after losing on aggregate to minnows Lesotho in the 2015 African Cup of Nations (AFCON) qualifying double header.

The latest rankings, which have placed Kenya on 288 points, leave the country positioned at number 30 on the continent and third among countries in the CECAFA region for which Harambee Stars are the champions.

Uganda is the best ranked team in the region after a fine start to their 2015 AFCON qualifying campaign. The Uganda Cranes improved two places from the August release and are now placed 79th in the world, and 19th in Africa while Rwanda is the second best in the region, ranked 93rd in the world and 25th on the continent.

Tanzania, who like Kenya, failed to make it past the preliminary qualifiers of the AFCON, have dropped five places and are now ranked 115th in the world, 33rd on the continent and fourth in the CECAFA region while Burundi is fifth in the CECAFA region, 130th place in the world and 38thin Africa.

Ethiopia and Sudan follow in that order in the CECAFA region in positions six and seven. Ethiopia is 132nd in the world and 39th on the continent while Sudan is 133rd in the world and 40th in Africa.

Algeria remains the best ranked nation in Africa and having improved by four places from the August release, they are now ranked 20th in the world.

World champions Germany stay on top in the world.
