Super Eagle drop in latest FIFA Rankings, now 4th in Africa

The Nigeria men’s football team, Super Eagles have dropped in position in the latest rankings released on Thursday by the world football governing body FIFA.

Super Eagles who previously occupied the 3rd position in Africa and the 30th position in the global rankings now have dropped one place.

The drop in the rankings would have been a result of the two friendly losses to the 12th-ranked Mexico and 44th-ranked Ecuador.

Mexico pipped Nigeria 2-1 while Ecuador also secured a 1-0 win in the US.

Nigeria, however, secured two wins in the month of June, a 2-1 win against Cape Verde and the historic 10-0 win against Sao Tome and Principe.

But those wins against weaker opponents didn’t help boost Nigeria’s rankings in the latest release.

Nigeria (31st) now 4th in Africa rankings behind (18th) Senegal, (22nd) Morocco, (30th) Tunisia, and 7 positions ahead of (38th) Cameroon.

Globally, Brazil remain the number one team, Belgium second, Argentina third, France and England complete the top five.
