Nandwa wants rankings improvement



Harambee Stars coach James Nandwa is concerned by the continued drop of the country in the Fifa rankings.

Kenya again dropped in the December rankings, falling four places from 130 to 134th in the world. The drop was tempered by the country’s 1-0 loss to Tanzania in a friendly match.

Nandwa says that it is time the country took focus on the rankings and insists that they have to do their best to improve the numbers.

“We have to improve. We have no option. I think that we have to take responsibility for whatever happens and that is our job as people who work in the game,” he said.

“So far, it has simply not been good enough and we have to accept that and move forward. We have not been good enough in the last couple of years so it is not about the recent results we have had. “It is something we have to work on collectively.”

Nandwa also feels that the national team has to play more friendly games to help improve the ranking.

“We must play more friendly matches. The big problem for us has been that we play competitive matches in qualifiers and important matches. We must look to build our ranking by playing friendlies and it also helps us prepare for important qualifiers and the likes. That is where we can improve,” he added.

Nandwa is currently the coach of the national side after the Henri Michel stepped away from the job.
