Bafana Bafana have climbed up two places on FIFA’s official world ranking chart, with the international governing body of football having released the latest seedings on Thursday, January 17.

South Africa have climbed from 87th place to 85th, with the national team’s recent international friendlies having affected their points tally on the overall standings.
