After 15 years, Tunisia is back to the top of the FIFA Africa monthly rankings.
According to Brecorder.com, the team’s accolades come after winning matches against the Democratic Republic of Congo and Guinea in October, poising it to qualify for the 2018 World Cup in Russia.
Coach Nabil Maaloul led the team to its current spot after losing four previous qualifiers for the World Cup.
To remain in first place, Tunisia needs to win one point in a match previously scheduled against Libya on Nov. 11.
The last time a team from the West African nation snagged the top spot was in 2002, when the Carthage Eagles ended their six-month stay atop the chart.
