Massive shift for Cranes
Uganda Cranes moved nine places up to 85th in the latest Fifa ranking released on Wednesday.
This follows the Cranes' fairly impressive performances in June. Uganda drew with Angola away and Senegal at home in the 2014 World Cup qualifiers before dispatching Congo Brazzaville 4-0 in the 2013 Nations Cup test.
Despite the raise, however, Cranes coach Bobby Williamson once again slammed ranking saying it does not reflect the real picture.
The Scot was speaking to SuperSport.com via phone from his home country in the aftermath of the latest ranking.
"The Fifa ranking is terribly flawed," said Bobby, adding, "I have been saying that for long enough. It doesn't concern me, we just get on with our job.”
Uganda, however, remain the undisputable kings of the Cecafa region.
Sudan, who represented at the just concluded Africa Cup of Nations, are the closest to Uganda having dropped four slots to 105th.
The Cranes are also ranked 20th in Africa followed by Sudan in 27th in the Cecafa region.
Kenya and Rwanda, who are tied at 125, were the biggest losers with the Harambee Stars dropping 14 places and Amavumbi stars sliding six respectively.
Tanzania were the highest climbers having moved 12 slots up to 127th while Burundi remain the lowest rated in the region after dropping five places down to 136th.
Meanwhile, Bobby and Uganda will hope for a 'fair' opponent when draws for the final round of next year's Nations Cup qualifiers are held on Thursday.
