Bafana Continue Climb In FIFA Rankings

Bafana Have Moved Up In The FIFA Rankings

By Soccer Laduma - Apr 12, 2018 12:17 PM
For the fourth month in a row, Bafana Bafana have moved up in the FIFA rankings as they look to break back into Africa’s top 10 teams.
 
 
Last month’s draw against Angola and victory over Zambia in a friendly tournament gave them a points boost in the rankings, seeing them jump up four spots into 72nd in the world, however, they are unmoved in the African region where they stay 15th.
 
The South African national team have continued a steady rise in recent months, starting the year in 81st place before going 78th in January, 77th in February and 76th in March prior to the release of the April rankings.
 
Bafana are still a long way away from their best ranking position – 16th in the World back in 1996 – but are substantially far away from where they were at the following readmittance in 1993.
 
Stuart Baxter will now be hoping to build on last month’s Four Nations Cup win when they go into competitive games this year, with the opportunity to qualify for the African Cup of Nations and move even higher in the rankings.
 
 
Meanwhile, the best mover this month was Kyrgyz Republic, who leapt 40 places into 75th place, with Haiti having the worst month as they dropped 23 places to 108th.

as long as they dont qualify for anything even if they are number one i dont think any sane SA supporter gives a shiidi, some of us actually don't care about these points
