Bafana hold firm in latest Federation Internationale de Football Association rankings

Bafana hold firm in latest Federation Internationale de Football Association rankings

The elite football regulatory body FIFA, took to their official website to release the latest ranking ahead of the incoming World Cup next month.

Most of the top 50 is unchanged, with Germany, Brazil and Belgium at one through three in the same top 10 as last month.

Stuart Baxter's Bafana side recently beat hosts Zambia to win the Four-Nations tournament in March.

Nigeria's next friendly opponent DR Congo, also retained their number 3 position in Africa and 38th in the world with Nigeria also remaining 6th on the continent while Russia-bound Tunisia leads the way as the only African country in the top 20.




There are no movers inside the world's top 47 places, and therefore Africa's top six remain as they were in April.

The Harambee Stars are yet to break into the top 100 places in 2018 with position 105 - which they occupied in the months of January and March still their best ever rank for the year.

However, there were some slight changes in the overall rankings, but Bafana's previous spot of 72nd in the world was free of alterations.

The next ranking on June 7, 2018 - seven day to the commencement of the 2018 Fifa World Cup at the Luzhniki Stadium, Moscow.
