Bafana Leapfrog African Rivals In Latest FIFA Rankings

Bafana Bafana's impressive form in the FIFA World Cup qualifiers recently has seen them move up significantly in the latest FIFA rankings. 

Hugo Broos' men registered two victories in group C of their World Cup qualifiers against Ethiopia and currently top the standings with more matches to play, against Zimbabwe and Ghana. 

In the latest FIFA rankings released on Thursday, October 21, Bafana Bafana are in 66th place. This is seven places up the last rankings that were released in September, as they leapfrogged DR Congo.  

Have a look at some of the Bafana coaches since 1992...

It's the first time in 2021 that Bafana Bafana are ranked in the sixties, which shows improvement from the side since Broos took over from former coach Molefi Ntseki. 

On the African continent, Bafana Bafana are currently ranked in 12th place and they will be hoping to get into the top 10 in the near future.

Bafana Bafana will be back in action in November when they take on Zimbabwe at home and Ghana away. Broos and his men know that there is no room to slip up in those two matches, with second-placed Ghana looking to finish top of the group to progress to the next round of qualifiers.
