Although they have never qualified for a major tournament, Lesotho have been increasingly competitive in recent years. The team affectionately known as the Likuena (Crocodiles) reached an all-time high FIFA ranking of 105 in 2014 after a number of solid results. They have consistently troubled far-more fancied opponents, with recent victories against Tanzania and Zimbabwe demonstrating the competitiveness of the team. Lesotho have achieved these results with a team almost completely comprised of players from their domestic league, however with a number of players beginning to join South African clubs, hopes are high that results will continue to improve and qualification their first Africa Cup of Nations may be on the way in the near future.
