Harambee Stars move two places up in latest FIFA ranking ▷ Kenya News

by kenya-tribune

Harambee Stars have moved two places up in the latest FIFA rankings, with the football governing body placing the Francis Kimanzi-tutored side 106th up from 108.

The relatively impressive ranking can be credited to Stars’ decent run of results in the 2021 African Cup of Nations qualifiers.

Kenya staged an impressive draw against record African football giants Egypt away in Cairo before earning another draw against Togo at home.

Harambee Stars had dropped in the last rankings to 108 following a home loss to Mozambique in an international friendly back in October.

Kenya are now tied on 106th position with Palestine and is the reason for them gaining two places despite them moving from 107th to 106th.

Mozambique are just a place above Kenya after beating Rwanda and drawing against Cape Verde in the AFCON qualifiers.

Senegal maintained their status as the best-ranked African nation while the top five in the CAF also remained unchanged with Tunisia, Nigeria, Algeria, and Morocco maintaining their positions.

Belgium, meanwhile remain the top ranked nation in the world after going through the UEFA European Championship qualifiers unbeaten while world champions France, Brazil, England, and Uruguay round up the top five.

Myanmar were the biggest gainers in the November rankings moving up 11 slots while Equitorial Guinea dropped 10 places to make the most dropped nation.
