Kenya’s rise in FIFA rankings

Achieving the highest ever rankings as we close in on the World Cup 2010, Kenya’s national football team couldn’t ask for a better source of motivation. With the ever-circling ‘vultures’ of Kenyan football officials, this is quite an inspiration to local footballers who hope to one day see more than their fair share of footballers in the monied European leagues.
Currently at 68th place in the world, 14th in Africa and being the second best highest-rising nation in the rankings is bound to justify its place in the TV screenings and the corporate firms which have all so often been on and off in their support.
As a sporting nation, we can do all we can to support the team as it prepares for the immediate task of CECAFA Senior Challenge Cup and also the 2nd phase of WC cum Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers later next year. Let’s not be held down by selfish interests and narrow minded officials who see no further than their stomachs, and if we can let’s hold out the RED CARD for them, NO MORE NONSENSE !
Top 10 rankings are as follows;
1. Spain
2. Germany
3. Netherlands
4. Italy
5. Brazil
6. Argentina
7. Croatia
8. England
9. Russia
10. Turkey
