Nairobi - Kenya has risen to position 86 in the world after the latest World Rankings released by FIFA on Thursday 14 July, 2016.
The new ranking is a huge improvement of 43 places, from 129 in the last ranking.
This has been achieved thanks to a 2-1 win over Congo in an AFCON qualifier in Nairobi last month.
" The improvement is great for us and we want to go even higher," Football Kenya Federation boss Nick Mwendwa told News24.
Kenya will be hoping to move into the top 60 in the world to boost the standing of local players seeking to play in leagues abroad in future.
