Harambee Stars static in latest FIFA world rankings

Kenya has remained second in the East Africa region and at position 104 in the world in the latest FIFA rankings after Harambee Stars remained matchless so far this year.

Their last assignment was in November 2020 when they played Comoros in a double-header drawing 1-1 at home before falling 2-1 away.

They are on 1187 points and as a result, there was no movement in terms of positions since the points remained constant as well.

Uganda have dropped four places down to 83rd in the latest FIFA rankings released on Thursday, February 4 after the East African heavyweights were eliminated from the African Nations Championship held in Cameroon recently after a 0-0 draw with Rwanda while loosing 2-1 and 5-2 against Togo and eventual champions Morocco respectively.

In the latest ranking Uganda have 1301 points, six less than what they had a month ago.

Just like Kenya their neighbors Tanzania have stalled in position 135 despite adding two points in their tally after playing the Democratic Republic of Congo in an international friendly staged at the Benjamin Mkapa Stadium in Dar es Salaam before participating in the Chan competition where they lost 2-0 to Zambia. They then defeated Namibia by a solitary goal in their second match of Group D before winding their campaign with a 2-2 draw with Guinea.

Sudan remain in position 127 with 1124 points while Rwanda have managed to increase their points from 1099 to 1103 but have remained at position 133.

CHAN winners Morocco (33rd, + 2), and runners-up Mali (54th, + 3) have made the most progress. Third-placed Guinea (72nd, + 1) and quarter-finalists Congo (90th, + 1) have also advanced.

Belgium, France, Brazil, England and Portugal continue to occupy the top spots, with the leading trio of Belgium, France and Brazil only separated by 37 points.
