Home / Observatory / Sport / Bafana Bafana Plunges 7 Spots In Fifa Ranking


Bafana Bafana has sunk further in the FIFA rankings. Having dropped seven places for November, it leaves the soccer team to find themselves almost out of Africa's top 20 nations. 

Back-to-Back defeats against Senegal, the Lions of Teranga, have seen Stuart Baxter's team drop considerably, now 81st – their lowest position since 2013. 

While Senegal made giants strides, thanks to their victories, they’re now top-ranked in the continent and Bafana Bafana has dropped to 18th in Africa, sitting between Mali and Zambia.

South Africa’s position will not be improving anytime soon as they wait until March for their next game, and they will need to make the most of their African Cup of Nations qualifiers if they’re to try and climb back up the table.

 Meanwhile, the best mover this month is Korea DPR who leapt up 18 spots to 114th, though it was a bad month for Laos who sunk 22 places into 184th.
