The Kenya National team Harambee Stars has dropped by a single slot in the latest FIFA rankings. Francis Kimanzi’s team is now ranked at number 108 in the world having held the 107 position in the previous two rankings.
The team fell to a 1-0 defeat to Mozambique during Octobers International break in a match played at the Moi International Sports Center Kasarani. Despite beating Kenya, Mozambique failed to move a single spot as they maintained their 112th position.
Senegal remained the top-ranked African nation, with the top five unchanged after Tunisia, Nigeria, Algeria and Morocco all maintained their places. Belgium also kept their number one status globally after a 9-0 win over San Marino last time out while and are followed by France and Brazil who managed 1-1 draws against Senegal and Nigeria.
Harambee Stars will face off with Egypt in an African Cup Of Nations qualifier set to be staged in Cairo on November 15 before hosting Togo in Nairobi just four days later.
Francis Kimanzi is still looking for his first win since he was appointed as the new head coach following the dismissal of Frenchman Sebastian Migne. Kimanzi drew in his first match against the Uganda Cranes before losing to aforementioned Mozambique.
Harambee Stars qualified for the last edition of the Africa Cup of Nations tournament held in Egypt earlier this year. Stars won just one match and as a result, were knocked out of the tournament in the Group Stages.
