BY SAMSON MBII,NAIROBI,4TH MAY 2017-Uganda Cranes have retained the 72nd position in the April Fifa rankings released on Thursday morning.
Apart from the local regional tours, the team, just like most of the nations, did not take part in any international fixtures and maintained the 473 points garnered in March.
Kenya (78), Ethiopia (124) and Tanzania on 135 were also unshaken due to inactivity during the ranking period.
However, Rwanda, under new coach Antoine Hey, drop a place down to 118 despite retaining their points.
South Sudan made the biggest move by points after collecting 31 from two wins over Somalia in the CHAN 2019 qualifiers and moved eight places up to 146. South Sudan will face Uganda in the first round.
Brazil, Argentina and Germany remain top three in the globe with a largely unchanged top 100.
