The national football team's rapid fall rolled on as the Harambee Stars dropped nine places into position 111 in the latest World Rankings according to a report published by FIFA on Thursday.

Senegal, who are ranked 23rd in the rankings, are now the first team in Africa.

The "Teranga Lions" achieved their highest position thanks to back-to-back World Cup qualifying victories over South Africa this month.
