The national soccer team, Harambee Stars, has moved three positions up to 103 with 1,205 points in the latest Fifa rankings released on Thursday, 22nd October.

The rise has been attributed to the Stars’ 2-1 triumph over Zambia’s Chipolopolo in an international friendly match at the Nyayo Stadium, Nairobi, on 9th October.

Meanwhile, Zambia national team dropped to 86th position in the latest rankings by the world soccer governing body.

Uganda is at position 72, while other teams that participate in the Cecafa competition are Sudan (128), Rwanda (133), Tanzania (134), Ethiopia (146), and Burundi (148).

In Africa, Senegal is the highest ranked team, at position 21, followed by Tunisia at 26, Algeria (30), Nigeria (32) and Morocco at 39.

Globally, Belgium, France, Brazil, England and Portugal still occupy the top five spots.

In the last rankings released in September, Kenya had moved from position 107 to 106.

Harambee Stars under new coach Jacob ‘Ghost’ Mulee will now be looking to improve on the current position in the coming months when they play against Comoros in an African Cup of Nations match next month.

Mulee was appointed the new head coach to replace Francis Kimanzi, who was sacked alongside assistant coach Zedekiah Otieno and goalkeeper trainer Lawrence Webo.

Kimanzi had only served in the position for one year after taking over from Sebastien Migne.
