Bafana Back In CAF Top 10

Gordon Igesund’s Bafana Bafana are back into the top 10 teams in Africa after climbing in this month’s FIFA rankings. The team previously sat at position 13 in December 2013.

Bafana climbed eight places in the world rankings, moving to 54th place from 62 last year, with their recent win over Mozambique aiding their rise up the table.

Igesund’s side have lost just two of their last 10 games, winning six of them, beating world champions, Spain, along the way.

Egypt made the biggest leap in Africa, jumping 10 places to fifth in the continent and 31st in the world, while Ivory Coast and Ghana retained their place in CAF’s top two.

Spain, Germany and Argentina have also kept their place as the world’s top three teams, while the 22 teams below them have all remained in the same positions.

The news will come as good reading for Igesund, who had set an improvement in the rankings as one of his primary goals when taking over as the national team’s head coach.
