Bafana Climb FIFA Rankings, Again

Bafana Have Risen In The FIFA Rankings This Month

By Soccer Laduma - Feb 15, 2018 03:32 PM
Bafana Bafana moved up one spot in the FIFA Rankings, in the month of February, and now occupies the position of 77th place in the world. 
 
 
Stuart Baxter’s side ended 2017 in 81st place after failing to qualify for the 2018 World Cup in Russia, but have steadily climbed up the table over the last couple of months despite their inactivity.
 
The South African national team have also risen one place in the African rankings, and are now rated as the 16th-best team in the continent.
 
Bafana are one of only five of Africa’s top 20 nations to have moved up at all this month, and have taken a step – albeit small – close to the top 10.
 
Interestingly, CAF also has both the best and worst movers in February, with Congo rising up eight spots to 88th and Egypt dropping 13 to 43rd.

How do you rate a team that is not playing ? Never mind failing to qualify for Russia after ending at the bottom of their group log? This does not make sense at all.

@SL_hated_donkey, if Fau supporters were intelligent, they would definitely feel ashamed and embarrassed by Khune 's contribution to Bafana Bafana.

@PHAZAMISA AKA NGOZI THE RETURN The truth is that eversince Khune became Bafana's no. 1, Bafana have been dropping and dropping down the rankings towards Zimbabwe and Botswana.

Zuma did the right thing mos.. he must resign everyday mos until Bafana is ranked the best team in the world, I'm 100% sure that even the Rand is strong in the market, should he resign again next week, the Rand will be stronger than the Dollar and Bafana will be in the top 20 in the world.
