Kenya’s poor trend in the FIFA World Rankings continued yet again this month, with Harambee Stars dropping by one place from number 115 in the month of April to 116th in the rankings released on Thursday 5 May.
The team had no matches in the ranking period, which could explain the drop, with the last activity for the team being in the 0-1 loss to Guinea Bissau in a Group E 2017 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) qualifying match in Nairobi in March.
Kenya’s drop was not reflected in the region as Uganda’s supremacy in the CECAFA region continued with the CECAFA champions ranked top in the region and 72nd in the world, having not moved at all, same to Rwanda who are second in the region and 87th in the world.
Kenya will be hoping to see an improvement when Harambee Stars takes on Tanzania in an international friendly match on Sunday 29 May in Nairobi.
Argentina is at the summit of the world table while Algeria and African champions Ivory Coast are the top African teams in that order and at position 33 and 34 respectively.
