Bafana Bafana Move Up Four Places In Latest FIFA Rankings

The South African national team has moved up four places into 72nd spot in the latest FIFA rankings.

Bafana Bafana were involved in a Four Nations tournament in Zambia last month, which they won, and it seems as though the victories over Angola and Chipolopolo, gave them a points boost in the rankings as they steadily look to break into the top 10 in Africa, as they stay 15th.

Stuart Baxter’s forces started the year in 81st place before going 78th. In February they moved up one spot to 77th and then 76th in March before their newest placing released this week.

With more international fixtures coming up as Bafana look to qualify for the 2019 African Cup of Nations in Cameroon, wins over Nigeria, Libya and the Seychelles in the qualifiers could further see them move up the standings.

Tunisia retain their top spot on the continent, followed by Senegal, DR Congo, Morocco and Egypt.

In the world, World Cup holders Germany remain in pole position, followed by Brazil, Belgium, Portugal and Argentina.
