Kenya, under the tutelage of Jacob "Ghost" Mulee, were hoping to make a successive return to the biennial showpiece but saw their hopes go up in flames after failing to beat the Pharaohs at home in the must-win encounter before winning 2-1 away at Togo in the AFCON qualifiers.
Despite not making it to the continental showpiece slated for Cameroon next year, Harambee Stars gave a good account of themselves and fans have great confidence in the team ahead of the upcoming World Cup qualifiers.
With the team’s recent exploits, it is now ranked position 102 globally up from position 104. Stars are ranked 15th in Africa.
Senegal is the highest ranked African team at position 22. Nigeria comes in at position 32 while Algeria is 33.
The Atlas Lions of Morocco are 34th while Egypt are 46th as Ghana comes in at position 49.
