Egypt national team jumped to the 20th place in the FIFA world rankings for March, moving up three positions from last month’s rankings.

In February’s ranking, Hector Cuper’s team jumped 12 spots and sat on top of the African listing for the first time in seven years.

The Pharaohs are currently ranked 20th with 904 points, maintaining their position on top of African teams. This is the first time for the Pharaohs to reach this position since 2011.

Egypt finished second in the 2017 tournament in Gabon not losing any match except the final against Cameroon, which ended 2-1 for the Indomitable Lions. This marked the Pharaohs’ first participation in the African tournament since 2010.

Senegal remained second in Africa but moved up three positions in the world ranking and are now ranked 28th followed by Cameroon who only moved up one position and sits in the 32nd position.

Burkina Faso are the fourth best African team and are currently in the 36th position worldwide, replacing Tunisia who dropped down one position.
