Kenya drops to 123 in Fifa soccer rankings

Posted by Administrator on February 18, 2012

Harambee Stars have been inactive for the past two months after missing out on the African Cup of Nations won by Zambia a week ago. The national team returns to action on February 28 when  they face Togo in a 2013 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier.

Stars  opponents, Togo went six positions up to place to 94. After winning the  African Cup of Nations for the first time against Ivory Coast on Sunday,  Zambia were the highest African climbers, breaking into the top 50 for  the first time to 43.

Other beneficiaries were Africa Cup of  Nations co-hosts Gabon who moved a place up to position 45. Africa Cup  third finishers Mali climbed 25 places up to 44.

Despite losing out in  the final, Ivory Coast climbed three places to 15 to retain their top  position in Africa. Ghana are second after a three place rise, despite a  disappointing outing at the continental showcase.

Former continental  champions Egypt and Nigeria, Senegal, Cape Verde and Niger were the five  biggest continental losers after falling to 25, 11, 25, 11 and 13  places respectively. Spain retained their top position in the world.
