All does not look rosy for Uganda on paper after the Pearl of Africa sunk by 8 slots in the latest Federation of International Football Associations (FIFA) World ranking released on Wednesday, 7th June 2018.
Out of the 210 World footballing nations, Uganda is now ranked 82nd with just 403 points. The poor ranking has been attributed to the Cranes’ recent double loss away to Central African Republic by 1-0 and then 2-1 against Niger.
The two losses have also since had many local pundits question the national team head coach’s (Sebastian Desabre) tactics.
Globally, Germany maintained the number one spot with 1558 points with 5-time World Cup winners Brazil in second place at 1431 points.
The top two are followed by Belgium, Portugal, Argentina, Switzerland, France, Poland, Chile and Spain to complete the first ten respectively.
