Coach Antoine hopes Rwanda will rise again on FIFA ranking

Posted on Apr 06 2017

The Amavubi head coach Antoine Hey has said that all hope is not lost in the current position of Rwanda on the latest FIFA rating.

Speaking to Ferwafa.rw on Thursday, Coach Antoine said that dropping more places on the FIFA ranking was not a welcome development but urged football fans to remain optimistic as the country heads into a competitive campaign later next month.

“We have lost the positions because the last match was played seven month ago.
Inactivity is always reflecting on the ranking,”

“Now, we have the chance to improve on the FIFA ranking as we hope to play several matches in a very short period of time,” added the German-born coach.

On Thursday, FIFA released the monthly global standings which saw Rwanda drop twenty four place to 117th world wide with 285 points.

Rwanda’s opponent in next month’s 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers, Central Africa Republic dropped 22 places to 130 while other opponents in the same group namely; Guinea dropped one place to 71st while Cote d’Ivoire also dropped one place to 48th respectively.

Neighbors Uganda are 72nd in the world, from 74th last month with 462 points and are now 15th in Africa.

Kenya have had a massive improvement moving up a record 10 places to 78, just six slots below Uganda following a 1-1 draw with Uganda by beating CHAN champions DR Congo 2-1 at Machakos, still last month.

In Africa, Egypt are now the highest ranked nation in Africa and 19th in the world after rising a slot. Ghana have dropped two places to 45th while Congo Brazzaville are now 84th after a slump by six places.

Globally, record World Cup winners Brazil remain the top ranked nation followed by rivals Argentina, Germany, Chile and Colombia in that order.
