FIFA RANKINGS: NIGERIA DROP SIX SPOTS TO BE PLACED 44TH
Despite a decent performance against Cameroon in the double-header World Cup qualifier, Gernot Rohr’s men plunged six places in the latest grading
Nigeria have slipped six places below to be placed 44th in the latest edition of the Fifa rankings released on Thursday.
In the month under review, the Super Eagles recorded a decent outing against Cameroon in the World Cup qualifiers. First, they pummelled the Indomitable Lions 4-0 in Uyo before they were held to a 1-1 draw in Yaoundé.
Even at that, Gernot Rohr’s moved southward in the grading - as they now rank Fifth in Africa according to the world football governing body.
Cameroon fell 10 places to no. 45 in the world and sixth in Africa. Nigeria’s next opponent in the race to Russia 2018, Zambia zoomed 18 places up (78th in the world) after recording a double against Algeria.
Cape Verde were the biggest movers (up 47 rank, 264 by points) with Switzerland plummeting after losing 119 points.
Germany dethroned Brazil from the summit of the ranking following two impressive Fifa World Cup qualifying victories over Czech Republic and Norway.
Portugal, for their part, are up three to third and, further down, no fewer than 23 teams jumped ten places or more.

Useless, cheating, corrupt FIFA. Can they ever change?
Worthless ranking worthy of the dust bin.

THE BEST PLAYER IN THE WORLD
CASE FOR LIONEL MESSI
When we all hear the name Lionel Messi, what comes to our mind is that 5ft7 dude, with the most mesmerising left foot ever seen and a host of awards and personal achievements (including 5 balon d'ors). The debate for who is the world's best player raging on in the past 11 years, this is because two footballers have 'duopolized' it. They are Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi. As a matter of fact, the last time any other player won it apart from them was Kaka in 2007. Since then, it has been a tug of war with Messi being narrowly on top, at least for the next few months. Messi has 5 balon d'ors while Ronaldo has 4. However, Ronaldo is widely tipped to pip Messi to this year's prize. Messi and Ronaldo continue to divide fans, coaches and fellow players alike, at the same time they continue to draw pundits from every angle for the consistency and brilliance. However, one baffling issue is that we can not say for sure who is out rightly better. Year after year they continue to set and break records while making other footballers look silly on the pitch (ask Boateng about Messi and do the same to Pique about Ronaldo). So what we at grass sports want to do now is to present a case why Messi is should be considered as the best.

Nigeria is easily the best team in Africa and among the the top 20 teams in the world at the moment.
