Bafana Bafana ranks remain the same in FIFA even after AFCON qualifier wins

Even though the national team has been a winning team recently with their back-to-back victories over Sao Tome and Principe, Bafana Bafana’s FIFA ranking is still the same.

Bafana Bafana won against Sao Tome 2-0 and 4-2 in Durban and Port Elizabeth, respectively, in AFCON 2022 qualifiers earlier this month. Unfortunately, even though that was the case, the victories weren’t enough to see Bafana improve on the 72nd-place ranking.

Our team also remained the 14th-best ranked side in Africa in a list topped by Senegal, who are 17th in the overall rankings while the latest rankings saw Belgium keep their top spot, with France and Brazil rounding out the top 3.

Diego Maradona’s beloved Argentina side moved to seventh place overall on the back of impressive showings in the South American qualifiers for the 2022 Soccer World Cup.
