However, Bafana have not been in action since their 2-1 loss to Nigeria in the last eight of the AFCON competition and subsequently saw a drop from 70th position to 71, with Saudi Arabia overtaking the South African side. 

Although, Bafana will be given the chance to improve their standings next month when they get underway with the 2021 AFCON qualifiers between October 7 and 15.
