Super Eagles Of Nigeria Moves Up One Spot In Latest FIFA Ranking

Nigeria’s Super Eagles have moved up one spot in the latest rankings released by the Federation of International Football Association (FIFA) on Friday.

The slight improvement was a result of the team’s victory against the Leone Stars of Sierra Leone this month.

The Super Eagles were ranked 40th in the last ranking released in April but have now moved up to 39th.

The three-time African champions gained a total of 5.68 to move up a place from their position last April.

Nigeria played just one game in the last international window, beating Sierra Leone 3-2 to book their place in next year’s Africa Cup of Nations in Ivory Coast.

With the movement, Jose Peserio’s men stay above Erling Haaland’s Norway, the Black Stars of Ghana, the Elephants of Cote D’Ivoire, and the Indomitable Lions of Cameroon.


On the African continent, the Super Eagles remain in the top six, which is a big boost for them as it means they will be among the top seeds when the AFCON draw is conducted later this year.

Meanwhile, Morocco remains Africa’s number one nation, sitting in 13th place in the world ranking.

They are followed by the Teranga Lions of Senegal (18th), the Carthage Eagles of Tunisia (31), the Desert Warriors of Algeria (33), and the Pharaohs of Egypt (34). 

On the world stage, world champions Argentina are still the number one ranked nation ahead of France, Brazil, England, and Belgium.
