Bafana Bafana have moved further away from FIFA’s Top 50 in this month’s rankings, dropping four spots to 56th and moving to 14th in Africa.
Shakes Mashaba’s men only managed to pick up a single point at the 2015 African Cup of Nations in Equatorial Guinea, and because of that have seen other teams rise up the ranks above them.
The biggest risers in the world were hosts, Equatorial Guinea, who moved up 69 places to 49th after their performances in the tournament, while Ivory Coast moved eight places into the top 20 after their tournament victory.
Algeria stay ranked as Africa’s best team, however Ivory Coast occupy second place and Ghana third following their exploits over the past month.
The worst movers in the world this month were Libya, who dropped 35 places to 113th.
