Bafana Climb In FIFA Rankings After Nigeria Win

Bafana Bafana moved up in the FIFA Rankings for the first time since the start of 2017 and are now ranked 64th in the world.

Read: R4.6m Could Secure Jali Move

The South African national team have spent the entire year moving between 60th and 65th, dropping from 60th in January to 62nd in March, 64th in April and then 65th in June, however, for July there has been a minor improvement. 

Victory over Nigeria last month will no doubt have helped Bafana's cause, however, defeat to Zambia and Tanzania meant that they picked up no rankings points for those games.

Stuart Baxter had Bafana inside the FIFA top 50 during his previous spell in charge between 2004 and 2005 and he will no doubt be trying to move up the rankings during his current spell.

Meanwhile, Bafana fell one place in Africa and are now 13th between Morocco and Guinea.
