Super Eagles Drop 9 Places In FIFA Ranking by marryjesus: 12:27pm On Nov 23, 2017
In spite of the Super Eagles sterling performance in the World Cup qualifiers and its convincing defeat of Argentina – one of the world’s finest teams, Nigeria has dropped nine (9) places in the latest football ranking by the International Federation of Association Football ( FIFA ).

FIFA made this latest ranking known on Thursday, putting Nigeria at 50th position in the world and 8th in Africa.It can be recalled that Nigeria occupied the 41st position in the last ranking. This did not augur well for the die-hard fans of the Super Eagles as they expected the recent exploits of the team to have levitated the Eagles to more desirable position in the upward direction.


A few unexpected teams like Cameroon, Democratic Republic of the Congo etc., ranked higher than Nigeria.

However, we are very hopeful that the forthcoming ranking by FIFA scheduled for 21st December, 2017 should hold more serendipitous prospects for our national team.

See below the list of the top ten (10) teams in Africa and the world:
Africa
Senegal
Tunisia
Egypt
Congo DR
Morocco
Burkina Faso
Cameroon
Nigeria
Ghana
Côte d’Ivoire


World
Germany
Brazil
Portugal
Argentina
Belgium
Spain
Poland
Switzerland
France
Chile

Rubbish!

We are the first Africa country to qualify for the WC and coming back from 2goals down to beat Argentina yet we're still descending on this GT list. Tell us the measures used in ranking then.

I wonder how and what criteria they use in making their rankings because Nigeria is far better than most of those teams ahead of us.

They can rank us last for all I care as long as our boys keep on delivering and get to at least the quarter finals of the upcoming world cup tournament. tongue

The team needs a standard goal keeper.With the current ones,the world cup will turn out to be a disaster.

cheesy
I like it that way...
At least it will mislead opponents into thinking we are underdogs....
Look at algeria before the world cup qualifiers....They were africa's numero uno based on fifa standings!
Now just look at their recent performances.....they could not even get a single win both home and away!
So lets ignore these "yeye" fifa rankings...they are very deceitful!
It doesn't give a true and valid description of a team's capability!
