The South African national team has climbed four places in the Fifa World Rankings.
That might sound like a positive spin, but Bafana Bafana's still at a very low position at no.72 in the world.
Here's how the fans have reacted to the news with their typical South African humour on Twitter.

Bafana Bafana play better when all our players are with their respective clubs, you can tell by the FIFA Rankings where they keep climbing up when they're not in camp and slide down when they are in camp...— Kokwele M. Phillix (@Matome_Kay) April 12, 2018
