Bafana drop in FIFA rankings

11 April 2013, 12:18

Zurich - South Africa have dropped two places to No 62 in the latest FIFA rankings, despite their 2014 Soccer World Cup qualifying win against Central African Republic last month.

Croatia has made a big move to No 4 in the FIFA rankings after two World Cup qualifying wins, and tournament host Brazil dropped to No 19.

World and European champion Spain leads an unchanged top three, from Germany and Argentina.

Croatia's victories against Wales and Scotland last month lifted it five places, and No 5 Portugal climbs two spots.

Colombia remains No 6, followed by England and Italy, which both fell three places, and the Netherlands.

Ecuador enters the top 10, up two, and No 12 Ivory Coast is the top-ranked African team.

Mexico is up one to No 14.

Rankings weigh results over a four-year cycle and Brazil, which fell one place, has dropped while playing no World Cup qualifiers.

1. Ivory Coast (12th)
2. Ghana (22nd)
3. Mali (26th)
4. Nigeria (31st)
5. Algeria (35th)
6. Tunisia (41st)
7. Zambia (45th)
8. Burkina Faso (50th)
9. Equatorial Guinea (59th)
10. Cameroon (60th)
