Uganda Cranes

The Uganda Cranes have moved up two slots in the latest Fifa November football rankings released today.

The Cranes climbed to 77th position in the world with a total of 1321 points and are placed at 15th in Africa, remaining the best in the Cecafa region.

The improvement comes after Uganda Cranes beat Malawi 2-0 and held Burkina Faso to a goalless draw in the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers.

Neighbours Kenya ascended by two slots to 106, while Tanzania dropped a place to 134, Burundi is at 151 and Rwanda at 131.

The top five countries in Africa are; Senegal (20), Tunisia (27), Nigeria (31), Algeria (35) and Morocco (43).

The top five remains unchanged and there is only one change in the top ten, with Croatia (6th, up 1) climbing for the second successive edition at the expense of Portugal (7th, down 1).

Belgium, France, Brazil, England and Uruguay are the best five countries in the world.

There are, however, more significant changes further down the table, with Italy (13th, up 2), Poland (19th, up 2), Serbia (29th, up 4) and Nigeria (31st, up 4) pushing their way upwards.

The final FIFA/Coca-Cola World ranking for this year will be published on 19 December 2019.
