Kenya sit 21st in Africa, 56 places behind Senegal who are leading the continent as they occupy 33rd position in the world ahead of Africa champions Ivory Coast who dropped three places to lie 34th.

Tunisia are the third best ranked team in the continent followed by Egypt while Algeria closes the top five best African teams.

From the two matches that Kenya played, they collected 244.8 points against Liberia and 267.75 against Mozambique.

Argentina continue to top the standings with Brazil swapping places with Germany to come in at second on the world rankings.
