The Indomitable Lions of Cameroon are once again the best African football team according to FIFA rankings published on Friday 16 October.
Cameroon moved 15 places up the ladder and now sit as the 14th best team in the world.
The Elephants of Ivory Coast are now 2nd in Africa and 19th in the World while the Pharoahs of Egypt are ranked 3rd in Africa and 28th in the world.
Cameroon’s run of 4 victories and 1 draw since August must have contributed to this return to the top of FIFA’s world rankings.
It should be noted that these rankings are often used to pick seeded teams during competitions.
But the focus for Cameroon at the moment will be winning their final group game against Morrocco and obtain a berth at the 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa.
