FIFA Ranking: Super Eagles drop 3 places

Nigeria’s senior male national football team, the Super Eagles have moved down three places in latest November ranking published by FIFA Friday.

The Gernot Rohr led lads were ranked 32nd in the last global ranking released in October but following four unconvincing matches played between October and November 2020 in which the team could not win anyone, they have dropped down the rank and now ranked 35th in the world.

The team, however, remained 3rd in Africa.

Africa’s top five nations remain unchanged with Senegal the top team in the Confederation followed by Tunisia, Algeria, Nigeria and Morocco.

Nigeria’s Group L opponents in the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers, Benin, Sierra Leone and Lesotho sit in the 83rd, 116th and 143rd positions respectively.
