Germany tops the world as Kenya nosedives in Fifa rankings
Harambee Stars’ loss to Sierra Leone has heavily cost the Stanley Okumbi-coached team.
Germany’s surge can be attributed to their 2017 Fifa Confederations Cup championship, a factor which has seen Portugal also move four places up to occupy the fourth spot on the log.
Kenya has dropped to position 84 while their June opponent Sierra Leone, who emerged 2-1 winners in the first round of the 2019 African Cup of Nations (AFCON) qualifier played on June 10, has made a record 30 steps to settle just above Kenya (position 83).
Harambee Stars’ upcoming opponent in the qualifiers Ghana are at position 50 as neighbours Uganda drop to position 74.
Egypt are the Africa’s best team (at position 24 globally) while Senegal, DR Congo, Tunisia and Cameroon seal the first five positions in that order.
