Tanzania’s FIFA standards are on the rise


Dar es Salaam. Tanzania has risen by two places in the quality levels of the Federation of World Football Associations (FIFA) for the month of September.

A 1-0 home win against Niger and a goalless away draw against Algeria in the Afcon 2023 finals qualifiers to be held next year in Ivory Coast are the results that seemed to contribute to carrying Tanzania to the quality standards given yesterday, September 21.

According to those quality standards, Tanzania has risen to the 122nd position from the 124th which was present in the previous rankings issued in July.

Despite not qualifying for Afcon, Uganda has risen by three places from the previous 92nd to 89th while continuing to lead the member countries of the East and Central African Football Associations Council (Cecafa).

While Uganda and Tanzania are rising, things have not been good for Kenya, which has found itself falling by four places from the 105th in July to the 109th place, although it still ranks second in the Cecafa region behind Uganda.

Morocco, which is ranked 13th in the world, leads the quality chart on the African continent, followed by Senegal, which is ranked 20th in the world, Tunisia, which is ranked 29th in the Fifa charts, is third in Africa, while behind them are Algeria and Egypt, which are 34th and 35th place in the world respectively.

Argentina continues to lead followed by France, Brazil, England and Belgium.
