Nigeria drops one spot to 34th on Fifa World Ranking

The Super Eagles of Nigeria dropped one spot to 34th on the latest edition of the Fifa World ranking released Thursday.

This comes a week after the Nigerian national team played an impressive 2-2 draw against Ukraine – who maintained their 25th position on the ranking.

The Eagles garnered 1482 ranking points for September, one point more than they did the previous month, but the shift wasn’t enough to positively affect their placing on the log.

Nigeria however remains third in Africa, behind Afcon 2019 finalists Senegal and Tunisia ranked 20th and 29th respectively.

Reigning African champions Algeria, ranked 38th, and Egypt (49th), complete the top five on the continent.

The Red Devils of Belgium continue to lead the ranking after back-to-back wins in the Euro 2020 qualifiers, with world champions France, Brazil, England and European champions Portugal completing the top five.

The next world ranking of national teams will be released on October 17.
