Audu Adamu’s men with 756 points are now third in Africa but behind Egypt in the 16th position with 908 points while Senegal are now Africa’s best with 1028 points in 12th place in the world.

Morocco moved up five places to 21st place in the World as Madagascar rose up seven spots to 23rd position while Cote d’Ivoire climbed up a spot to 28th place occupying the fourth to sixth positions respectively on the continent.

In the world, Portugal ended up as 2016 world best team ahead of Russia, Brazil, Italy, Iran, Switzerland, Tahiti, Japan, Paraguay and Spain.
