Tunisia have moved top of Fifa's African rankings for the first time in 15 years.

The last time the North Africans were ranked the best team on the continent was back in January 2002, a position the Carthage Eagles had assumed the previous July.

Managed by Nabil Maaloul, Tunisia - who need just a point at home to Libya next month to qualify for the World Cup - replace Egypt at the top of the African standings.

Earlier this month, Egypt reached the World Cup for the first time since 1990.

Meanwhile, fellow African sides Eritrea and Somalia share the lowest spot in the rankings - 206th - with four other nations.

Africa's top ten on October's Fifa rankings - global ranking in brackets:

01    (28) Tunisia

02    (30) Egypt 

03    (32) Senegal 

04    (35) DR Congo 

05    (41) Nigeria 

06     (42) Cameroon

07    (48) Morocco 

08    (52) Ghana 

09    (55) Burkina Faso    

10    (61) Ivory Coast
