Back-to-back defeats against Senegal have seen Stuart Baxter’s team drop considerably in the rankings, and they are now 81st and in their lowest position since 2013.
While the Lions of Teranga made giants strides thanks to their victories – they’re now top-ranked in the continent and Bafana have dropped to 18th in Africa and sit in-between Mali and Zambia.
South Africa’s position will not be improving any time soon as they wait until March for their next game, and they will need to make the most of their African Cup of Nations qualifiers if they’re to try and climb back up the table.
Meanwhile, the best mover this month is Korea DPR who leapt up 18 spots to 114th, though it was a bad month for Laos who sunk 22 places into 184th.
