Federation Internationale de Football Association ranking: Super Eagles maintain 47th position in May”

Cape Town - South Africa remain unchanged in 72nd spot in the latest Federation Internationale de Football Association world rankings released on Thursday.

Four of the top five African ranked teams have qualified for Russian Federation 2018 with Tunisia retaining their top spot, followed by Senegal, DR Congo, Morocco and Egypt.

The Moroccan squad is followed in Africa's ranking by Egypt (46th) and Cameroon (50th).

For the top 10 ranked countries, Germany retained the first position, Brazil in second, Belgium in third, Portugal fourth and Argentina fifth.

The Four Nations win though comes as little compensation for Baxter's men since failing dismally to qualify for the 2018 Soccer World Cup in Russian Federation, with the rankings calculated over a rolling four-year period.

This is the fifth time that the Atlas Lions have qualified for the World Cup; previously the Lions played in 1970 and 1986 in Mexico, 1994 in US, and 1998 in France.

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.

They are one of only four nations who climbed more than five places over the last month, with Kuwait - who leaped 16 places up to 160th - the world's biggest movers.

The next ranking will be published on June 7, just seven days before the opening match in Russian Federation.
