Nandwa happy with improvement



Harambee Stars stand in coach James Nandwa is elated by the news that Kenya has improved seven places in the latest Fifa rankings.

Kenya are now 127 from 134th place a month ago as Nandwa reiterated that the slow return to improved rankings was due to hard work and determination by the team.

Stars are sandwiched between Namibia who are 126th and Moldova who are ranked 128.

"The improved rankings are a positive sign that the country is making strides and the game is improving. Going seven places up is not an easy process and I believe it all hard work and determination from the entire technical bench and players. When we lost to Burundi so many people had predicted that we would further drop in the rankings but i am happy things have remained positive," Nandwa told supersport.com.

Stars achieved its best ever ranking of 68th in 2008 when Francis Kimanzi was then coach.
