Nigeria have droped 27 places in the New FIFA world ranking, that is really terrible. I am sure after the game against Ghana showed our true colours and the 9th place was probably a fluke

Well that's what happens when you don't play many friendlies, and you lose to nations like Ghana
I think they just factored in the World Cup now, because Italy is number 1 in the world, na wa oh shocked

SIMPLE LOGIC!!!

dnt play friendly and u wunt loose points. lol
Re: Fifa World Ranking: Nigeria Down To 36th by Nobody: 3:29am On Feb 15, 2007
The greater scandal is how we even got up to 9th in the first place. no world cup, no friendlies and FIFA classed us as the number 1 team in Africa? Highly scandalous!
Re: Fifa World Ranking: Nigeria Down To 36th by chidichris(m): 6:59am On Feb 15, 2007
if we must talk fraud here, the first like david mentioned was the ninth and tenth position that we have occupied in the past.
well, eguavon has finally put us to where we belong.
if time is not taken, 2 face Idibia will be our next indeginious coach.
funny nigeria with the quality of players we have any of us here in nairaland can take them to beat 2 ghana teams combined but this man(eguavon is always interested in fighting on the papers with players.
he has finished with yakubu now is obafemi.
if he must be a coach, let them send him to coach the female basket ball team.
he lack all technicallities of a present day coach and all blames goes to the brain that thaught of choosing him among the assumed 140 million people in nigeria

Hee hee hee hee hee. . .

As much as I admit that those guys in Fifa are drunk, I also have to admit that this is a very good omen for Nigeria. It is part of the rush of ice cold water that is being poured on our sleepy eyes, as a wake up call.

It's a national disgrace, and I believe that even those our corrupt leaders in power would take a cue from this and begin to clean up our act.

GOD BLESS NIGERIA!
Re: Fifa World Ranking: Nigeria Down To 36th by lalaboi(m): 12:54pm On Feb 15, 2007
the reason we were in 9th position is cos we dint play friendlies. with dat no point is gained and no point is lost. playing friendlies can either increase ur points(win) or decrease it(lose).

Kit, u dissapoint me oo smiley

FIFA is 100%right!.We got to the 9th position via 'em ANC wins, Lesotho and Niger stuff.ofcos FIFA devalued us with the Romanian, CIV and ghana Losses and lack of activity during the FIFA free window for friendlies!. Someone said, we shouldnt play friendlies at all, well even if we dont play we would still drop.The fact was that,we shyed from friendlies hence the big drop or Do Y'all want FIFA to be ranking us based on the Niger and lesotho wins every month.

When other countries were playing friendlies, we were massaging our ego's as the 9th and 10th best in the world.

Prior to the world cup,Ghana was in the 50's in the ranking,after the world cup,check 'em out.the answer is that they ve been playing friendlies:Japan,Korea,Naija, and even Austria is the next!

Abeg, FIFA has kept us where we belong!.

Soon ke? Senegal will thrash us on current form. If adebayor's arsenal form is anything to go by then Togo is sure to whip us very soon!

yeah 60th would be closer to our true position. cant agree more

Hey! Hey! Hey!

Geez. . .  Guys relax!

Don't you guys think we should be celebrating?  grin    grin

We are very lucky we only came down to 36. After that serious ass whooping from Ghana, I was expecting much worse.

@Rikkyjen and Akola,

Kitaun, the fact is that this new FIFA method of ranking is very crappy. check it out:

Results within the last year are weighted at 100%
Results from over a year ago are weighted at 50%
Results from over 2 years ago are weighted at 30%
Results from over 3 years ago are weighted at 20%
Results from over 4 years ago does not count!

So even with our inactivity,we may have free-fallen more than this,so dont praise our footie inactivity. Next time, we dont shy away from friendlies or pull out at the last minute. Also do you know we also lose points and gain points depending on the team we play? if we had played maybe Italy or the Argies prolly we would have been in the ranks of 'em Fiji island, Marshall islands and burundi cheesy

@Kitaun

How do Nigeria rose to 5th position prior to USA '94.

The simple truth is those 5 matches in Tunisia '94.
Abi no be so?

Re: Fifa World Ranking: Nigeria Down To 36th by dblock(m): 5:52am On Feb 18, 2007
The ranking is questionable at best. 36th is unreflective of the team's stength, potential, capability and place in World Football. But no problems sha, we'll work our way back up wink

@AKOLA,

Exactly my point!! how could we just be elevated to that position just like that way back then, it tells you that they have always been inept with their rankings, methinks its must times shambolic sef, 5 matches in the CAN '94 and we end up as one of best 5 in the world?

Is that to justify our former 11th position placing cos we won minnows like Lesotho and Niger? HELL NO

Now all of a sudden we get defecated upon, ranked amongst minnows cos we lose a match to Ghana? BOLLOCKS

Cant we just reconcile ourselves with the fact that we never have fizzled out in reckoning when it concerns AFRICA, at least in the past couple of decades!!

What happened to Ghana in the days of Tony Yeboah and Abedi Pele? where the Ghananians able to manage their little success?

Even with all admin problems we have had we as a country have been able to keep our heads up in the comity of African nations

So how many points did Brazil drop cos they got whooped by Portugal 2-0?

Stop defending FIFA,


I REPEAT THEY ARE A BUNCH OF RETARDS grin grin


9TH - 36TH?? shocked shocked SIMPLY OUTRAGEOUS


SO IF YOUR PIKIN WEY DEY ALWAYS COME 1ST FOR CLASS COME LAST FOR 1 TEST AND IT AFFECTS THE TERM PERFORMANCE OF THE PIKIN, THE TEACHER NOW SAYS IN HIS REPORT CARD ''YOUR CHILD IS JUST AVERAGE", U NO GO LOOK SAY THE TEACHER HEAD NO CORRECT?? grin grin
