Super Eagles Move On FIFA Ranking

Nigeria has climbed nine places to 41st on the latest Fifa World Rankings released on Thursday.

This the biggest leap by the Super Eagles even though the team didn’t engage in any competitive game in the last one month. As they failed to qualify for the 2017 CAF Africa Cup of Nations (Afcon 2017).

It’s the Super Eagles highest Fifa ranking in over two years as they continue to move up the table under German coach Gernot Rohr.

The Eagles are now placed seventh on the continent, behind Afcon silver medalists Egypt, Senegal, reigning African champions Cameroon, Tunisia, Congo DR and Burkina Faso.
