Rwanda make a big moves in FIFA rankings

Rwanda made a huge move after a big result over Benin in the final day of  2012 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier this month. Rwanda move up 31 places to number 112 in the world and 29 in Africa.Bafana Bafana have moved up two places to number 49 in the world and No 8 in Africa, lifting above Burkina Faso in the continental rankings, while the whole country is still shocked by the new rules which saw them missing next year competition.

But they are certainly not alone among the continent’s top 10 ranked sides in not making the finals – Egypt (second in Africa), Algeria (fourth), Nigeria (sixth) and Cameroon (seventh) will also not be there.

Cote d’Ivoire remain the best-placed African side as they lead the continental list, and are placed 19th in the global rankings, followed by Egypt, Ghana, Algeria and Senegal.

The biggest fallers are Benin, who drop 27 places to 119 in the global list and 30 in Africa after loosing to Rwanda in their final 2012 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier this month.

There was just one change in the top five in the global list with Brazil moving into fifth. Spain remain the top side in the world, followed by Netherlands, Germany, Uruguay and the Brazilians.
