Scotland have jumped 15 places up the Federation Internationale de Football Association rankings, taking them to 43rd in the world.

Zambia's gain comes after a fruitful 2018 FIFA World Cup Group B qualifying campaign in September when they recorded back-to-back victories over Algeria who have dropped out of the FIFA top 50 as a outcome.

"We are happy that after our recent games against Egypt where we won one and lost the other we have improved in the Federation Internationale de Football Association rankings", Uganda interim coach Moses Basena told Xinhua.

Harambee Stars who were ranked 82 last month, now sit on position 88 in the world and 17 places below neighbors Uganda in the global index.

Poland are at No. 6, followed by Switzerland, France, Chile and Colombia. After a disappointing 2017 - a year which has seen chances of World Cup qualification dip from promising to hanging by fingernails - Ireland have dropped 11 places.
