Bafana beat Sao Tome 2-0 and 4-2 in Durban and Port Elizabeth, respectively, in AFCON 2022 qualifiers earlier this month.

The victories, however, weren’t enough to see Bafana improve on the 72nd-place ranking.

Bafana also remained the 14th-best ranked side in Africa in a list topped by Senegal, who are 17th in the overall rankings.

The latest rankings saw Belgium retain 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.
