The national football team coach, Milutin â€˜Michoâ€™ Sredojevic has said he is not worried by Ugandaâ€™s drop in the latest Coca Cola FIFA rankings. In the rankings released yesterday, Uganda dropped four places to 81st behind the likes of Belarus and Jamaica.
Uganda has finally broken into the top 15 African football nations as per the FIFA/Coca Cola world ranking released today. After their impressive wins over Liberia and Angola in the 2014 World Cup qualifiers, Uganda improved their placing by three places moving into 77th place in the world.
Uganda is now ranked 85th in the whole world with 409 points, after climbing 9 places from the 93rd position last month. The improvement was partly based on the Cranesâ€™ 4-0 humiliating victory over Congo Brazzaville and the 1-all draw against Senegal among others.
Uganda Cranes assistant captain Andy Mwesigwa says although Uganda has improved itâ€™s FIFA rankings, they will try to work hard so that the country gets to the top 50 best playing nations in the world.
