Cameroon stay top in Africa

Cameroon fan
Cameroon's fans still support the best-rated side in Africa

Cameroon remain Africa's top-rated national side but have slipped down the global table in the latest Fifa rankings.

The Indomitable Lions have dropped two places to 14 overall, four behind England, who are back in the top ten.

Egypt and Nigeria are Africa's next best-ranked teams, at 21 and 22 respectively.

Egypt go up one place whilst Nigeria climb five because of their perfect record in the latest stage of qualifying for the World Cup and Africa Cup of Nations in 2010.

Ghana are in fourth place on the continental list, but drop back a single place in the world table to 26.

Africa's biggest climbers are Uganda and Namibia, who both leap 12 positions up the table.

The Cranes are 83 in the world and the Brave Warriors are at 114.

The biggest losers are Mauritania, who drop 15 places.
