No change for Kenya in latest FIFA Womens Ranking

Kenya is still classified among "others" in the latest FIFA Women's' football rankings released on March 16th. The updated rankings still puts Kenya at position 135 alongside countries e.g.  Antigua and Barbuda, Afghanistan, Belize, Moldova etc.

134 is the last position for countries that have been engaging in some women's football. Kenya recently beat Zambia home and away and there was hope that the country will have a shift in the next releases.

According to FIFA's Ranking Criteria, the ranking of a team is deemed official when the country has played at least five  matches against teams with an official ranking.

Teams that are inactive during the last 4 years are not listed.

With more games for on the card for the Harambee Starlets , the ranking should change in the next release slated for 1st June 2012.
