Super Eagles Move Up One Spot In Latest FIFA Ranking

The Super Eagles rose up one place in the latest men’s ranking published on the FIFA website.

Jose Peseiro’s side moved from 40th to 39th position.

The Super Eagles defeated the Leone Stars of Sierra Leone 1-0 in their only outing in June.

The three-time African champions however remain in sixth position on the continent.

Nigeria was in 40th place when the last rankings were released by the world football governing body FIFA in April. They were also outside the top five at the last ranking.

However, following the last international break when they beat Sierra Leone 3-2 in their 2023 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier, the Super Eagles jumped to 39th.

However, they remain rooted to sixth in Africa. Nigeria is behind Morocco, Senegal, Algeria, Tunisia, and Egypt.

The Atlas Lions remain Africa’s best-placed team at 11, and it is not a surprise especially because they finished fourth at the last World Cup in Qatar.

Senegal are placed 18th, Tunisia are 31st, Algeria are 33rd, and Egypt are the fifth-best African nation as they sit in 34th place.

World Champions Argentina are 1st, while France, Brazil, England, and Belgium occupy the 2nd-5th place respectively.

Croatia, Netherlands, Italy, Portugal, and Spain complete the top ten.
