The Indian football team has gained three places to move up to 99 in the FIFA rankings for February released on Thursday.

A quiet month of worldwide football ensured there was minimal change in the global standings, with Africa's sides no different.

Bafana's highest placement in recent years was back in 2010 when they were part of the top 50, although that year also saw their lowest placement when they were - at one point - in 90th place.

While Poland, who host Nigeria on March 23rd, climbed one spot to become joint-sixth with Spain in the rankings; Serbia who play Nigeria four days after, reained their 34th position.

At the continental level, the Atlas Lions, qualified for the 2018 World Cup in Russian Federation, still rank 4th, behind Tunisia (23rd), Senegal (27th) and DR Congo (39th).

The next rankings will be published on April 12, 2018.

The best movers this month are Andorra who jumped seven places to 130th, while the worst mover was Azerbaijan after they fell eight places to 127th.
