Bafana Bafana’win against Spain maybe downgraded, the BBC reports.

Bafana Bafana’win against Spain maybe downgraded, the BBC reports.

The status of the friendly match would be reduced from an A international  because Spain used more substitutes than they are permitted.

If Fifa changes the grade of the match it will not carry any world ranking points, meaning South Africa's 1-0 win is effectively worthless.

The Spanish made seven substitutions, one more than Fifa regulations allow.
