THE Warriors moved one step up the Fifa/Coca-Cola world rankings to 125 in the world, according to the latest list released by the world football governing body.

Zimbabwe were in 126th place last month. The Warriors also moved from 40 to 39 in Africa this month.

Germany is still the world's best football team while Algeria is the highest ranked African nation.

Zimbabwe's opponents in the 2017 AFCON qualifiers Guinea are in the world's top 50.

Guinea, who appear to be clear favourites to progress from Group L, moved three steps up and are now 41st in the world.

The Warriors’ other opponents in the group, the Flames of Malawi, are 28 places higher than Zimbabwe and are number 97 in the world.

The only side ranked lower than Zimbabwe in their group is Swaziland who are on 175 after dropping 12 places down the ladder.

Algeria dropped three places from number 18 to 21 but remain Africa's highest ranked country followed by African champions Cote d'Ivoire on 23. The Elephants also dropped 3 places.

The Black Stars of Ghana dropped 2 places and are now number 26 followed by Tunisia (30) and Senegal (36).

The Cape Verde Islands who shocked Portugal 2-nil in an international friendly last month are now the 6th best team in Africa and are now number 37 in the world.

Guinea, Nigeria, Cameroon and Congo complete Africa's top 10.
