The Super Eagles of Nigeria have dropped seven places in the latest FIFA world ranking. The three-time Africa Cup of Nations winners are now ranked 34th in the world ranking released by the sport’s world governing body yesterday.
The Super Eagles’ drop in the new ranking was largely due to their inability to win any of their three international games – losing twice and settling for a draw once. Gernot Rohr’s men are now ranked number five in Africa.
Senegal remained Africa’s top team and ranked 21st in the world after climbing three spots, followed by Tunisia who now occupies 28th on the global ranking, down two spots from their previous ranking. AFCON winners Algeria are third in Africa, rising 12 places to 30th in the world.
Belgium remains the top-ranked team in the world followed by Brazil, France, England, and Euro 2020 winners Italy, respectively. South American champions Argentina are in sixth position, Spain in the seventh spot, while Portugal, Mexico and USA occupy eighth, ninth and tenth respectively.
