  • Africa champions Egypt have climbed up one spot in FIFA's world ranking for December 2010, bringing the team to ninth place.

The Pharaohs are leading all African and Arab countries in the global ranking after winning their third successive African Cup of Nation title in 2010.

The Egyptian national team has only played once in November, beating Australia 3-0.

However, Egypt coach Hassan Shehata and his squad are struggling in the bottom of Group G of the 2012 CAN qualifiers with a single point from possible six. They will face South Africa in March, 2011.

Meanwhile, the seven-time Africa champions are finalizing their preparations for Thursday's friendly with Qatar.
