Uganda has dropped further in the latest FIFA Rankings released on Thursday, November 30.
The Pearl of Africa currently occupies the 92nd position in the World, two slots below its 90th place in October.
In September, Uganda improved to the 89th position from 92nd in July.
The above development is not shocking news but rather anticipated due to the national team’s dismal performances in the last two international windows.
The Uganda Cranes played four games, including two international friendlies and World Cup qualifiers apiece, but only managed one victory and lost the other three.
Uganda edged Somalia 1-0 and lost 2-1 to Guinea in the World Cup qualifiers, while they lost 1-0 and 3-0 to Mali and Zambia in the international friendlies.
Following the sacking of Milutin Micho Sredojevic in October, FUFA appointed Paul Joseph Put as his successor. He was in charge of the World Cup qualifiers and hopes to return fortunes around.
Similarly, Put’s charges dropped from the 18th to the 19th position in Africa, although they continue to be CECAFA’s number one ranking footballing nation.
Internationally, World champion Argentina maintained its top spot, while Morocco, who reached last year’s World Cup semifinals, remains the best in Africa.
