Bafana Climb In FIFA Rankings After Nigeria Win

Bafana Have Up One Place In The FIFA Rankings

By Soccer Laduma - Jul 06, 2017 10:40 AM

Bafana Bafana moved up in the FIFA Rankings for the first time since the start of 2017 and are now ranked 64th in the world.

The South African national team have spent the entire year moving between 60th and 65th, dropping from 60th in January to 62nd in March, 64th in April and then 65th in June, however, for July there has been a minor improvement. 

Victory over Nigeria last month will no doubt have helped Bafana's cause, however, defeat to Zambia and Tanzania meant that they picked up no rankings points for those games. 

Find all updates on the latest rumours and confirmed deals in our Transfer Centre!

Stuart Baxter had Bafana inside the FIFA top 50 during his previous spell in charge between 2004 and 2005 and he will no doubt be trying to move up the rankings during his current spell.

Meanwhile, Bafana fell one place in Africa and are now 13th between Morocco and Guinea.

yeah If they can qualify 4 world cup they can go a lil bit up again. I believe that Baxter can lift Bafana up. He's proven himself by winning domestic cups bak to bak with different teams. He's the man who can take us somewhere.
