The Egyptian national football team have moved up four places in the latest FIFA rankings as they close in on a place among the top five places in Africa.
The Pharaohs played three games last month, which they won all against Liberia in a friendly and then two games against Libya in the 2022 World Cup qualifiers.
This helped Egypt move up from 48th to 44th in the world rankings, their best position since 2018 when they were placed 30th.
Moreover, Egypt are now ranked sixth in the CAF zone, 31 points behind fifth-placed Nigeria, who dropped two places to sit 36th.
Egypt will try to improve their rankings even more and will hope to overleap the Super Eagles ahead of the final World Cup qualification draw, which set up the highest-five ranked teams against the lowest ones.
Meanwhile, Senegal maintained their spot as the best African team in 20th place, seven ahead of Tunisia, who dropped two places from 25, while Morocco moved up four places to sit 29, overleaping Algeria, who remained 30th.
Egypt also became the fourth ranked Arabic nation after Qatar dropped to 46th while Saudi Arabia moved up to 49th.
In the world rankings, Belgium maintained the top spot ahead of Brazil, France, and Italy as England fell down to fifth place.
