Bafana move up rankings

Bafana Bafana got a slight push from Fifa yesterday when they moved up to 70th in the rankings after their performance at the Africa Cup of Nations finals that ended on Sunday in Ghana.

Before this tournament Bafana, who returned home early after they were knocked out in the group stages of the competition, were ranked 78th.

The South Africans, who were also placed 13th by CAF, are now 12th. - Sowetan
