In the last rankings in December, the Warriors were on 107 in the world with 299 points, but gained three points to 312 and two places up the ladder. They are ranked 28th in Africa.

This is the first time the Chan competition results have been used in the world rankings system following confirmation by Fifa and the Confederation of African Football (Caf) on Tuesday.

“The decision taken by the International Federation of Football Association was imposed with immediate effect. The Fifa rankings for the month of January shall be published on Thursday (yesterday) and will take into account matches played until January 12, 2014 within the framework of the 3rd edition of the Orange African Nations Championship — South Africa 2014,” read the Caf website.

The February rankings shall incorporate all other matches of the competition which ends on February 1.

There is no change in the top 25 teams, with Spain still leading the way, followed by Germany, Argentina, Colombia and Portugal. World Cup hosts Brazil are tenth. Egypt jumped 10 places to fifth in the continent and 31st in the world, while Ivory Coast and Ghana are the leading two continental nations.
