Cape Town - Following last month’s loss to Brazil, South Africa have dropped two places to 66th in the latest FIFA world rankings.

According to the Soccer-Laduma website, Bafana Bafana, who failed to qualify for the 2014 Soccer World Cup, have also moved down to 14th (from 12th) in the African rankings.

With the national team not playing again before the next release of the FIFA rankings on May 8, South Africa could see themselves slip further down the rankings.

South Africa will take on Australia (Monday, May 26 at 11:30) and New Zealand (Friday, May 30 at 09:30), and Bafana coach, Gordon Igesund, will be hoping that his team does well in these games to move up the rankings.

The top two overall spots remain the same, with Spain and Germany leading the way, while Portugal, Colombia and Uruguay each rise one to third, fourth and fifth respectively.

Argentina dropped three places to sixth, while World Cup hosts Brazil are up to seventh.
