TANZANIA STAGNATE IN FIFA WORLD RANKINGS WHILE KENYA AND UGANDA RISE

Harambee Stars have collected six points after their 2-1 win over Zambia in an international friendly

Kenya has moved three positions up in the recent rankings released by world football organizing body Fifa on Thursday, October 22.

The East African charges are now placed in position 103, up from 106 with 1205 points.

Harambee Stars returned to action on October 9 with an international friendly against Zambia in which they won 2-1.

Cliff Nyakeya’s strike and an own goal by Tandi Mwape handed Francis Kimanzi’s side the victory while a late goal by Emmanuel Chabula denied the East Africans a home clean sheet.

Despite leading Kenya to that win, Francis Kimanzi fell out with his employers and was eventually replaced by Jacob ‘Ghost’ Mulee who will now be tasked in helping them get past Comoros in the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations (Afcon) qualifying doubleheader scheduled for November.

Despite not getting involved in the recent international week, Uganda Cranes have moved up by a position.

Cranes have retained their 1321 points, but are now placed in the 76th position globally.

The Johnathan McKinstry-led charges camped in Dubai during the international week, in preparations for their November Afcon qualifying double-header against neighbours South Sudan.

However, Tanzania has stagnated in position 134 despite going down by a solitary goal at home to Burundi in their recent international friendly outing.

Saido Ntibazonkiza’s strike late in the second half was enough to hand the visitors a 1-0 win over Taifa Stars in an international friendly staged at the Benjamin Mkapa Stadium, Dar es Salaam on October 1

 

The loss, however, had no impact on the Fifa standings for the Etienne Ndayiragije-led team. They have remained in the same position but their points have dropped from 1086 to 1081.

The Swallows have moved a position higher to 148 with 1058 points, six more than their previous tally.

Sudan, who are on 1110 points, are placed in the 128th position while Rwanda is in position 133 with 1089 points. Ethiopia has retained position 146 with 1061 points with South Sudan down in the 168th position after managing 983 points
