Nigeria Remains 52nd on Latest Fifa Ranking

Nigeria remained unmoved on 52nd in the latest ranking of national teams by world football governing body, Fifa.

In a ranking that saw little shift overall after a month of relative inactivity on the international scene, the Super Eagles maintained the 609 ranking points garnered from last month.

The three-time African champions are seventh on the continent behind Tunisia, Senegal, Congo DR, Morocco, Egypt and Cameroon.

Gernot Rohr’s men will be in action later this month in World Cup tune-up games against Poland and Serbia, occupying the 6th and 34th positions on the ranking respectively.

A decent showing for the Eagles will see them improve their ranking which took a dive last November after months of steady increase.

There was no change at the top of the ranking, with world champions Germany retaining the no 1 spot, ahead of Brazil, Portugal, Argentina and Belgium.

Other 2018 World Cup group D opponents of the Eagles, Croatia and Iceland, also remain unmoved in 15th and 18th respectively.

The next ranking will be released on April 19.
