The Kenya national team Harambee Stars has registered a drop in the latest FIFA Rankings, released on Thursday 3 March, falling back below the top 100 after a slight improvement that saw the nation ranked 99 last month.
The depreciation by four places could be a direct factor in the team’s lack of participation in any international tournaments or competitions during the period.
Indeed, the last international match for Kenya was in December 2015, against Rwanda at the 2015 CECAFA Senior Challenge.
Uganda maintained its position as the best ranked team in the CECAFA region moving three positions from 70, up to 67 with Rwanda, Tanzania and Burundi ranking at positions 85, 125 and 129 respectively.
Cape Verde, who eliminated Harambee Stars from the 2018 World Cup qualifiers has dethroned Ivory Coast as the top team in the CAF region with Algeria, Ghana, Tunisia and Senegal occupying the best five positions in the continent in that order.
