Despite AWCON Victory, Falcons Slip In FIFA Ranking by 7Ebisco: 6:54am On Dec 08, 2018
Nigeria’s senior women football team, Super Falcons dropped to 39th spot in the last FIFA women ranking for 2018 released, yesterday by the world soccer governing body.

The Super Falcons went into the 2018 Africa Women Cup of Nations as the 38th best nation in the world, but a record ninth title-winning feat in Ghana failed to save them from moving a spot down.

At the biennial women’s football event, Thomas Dennerby’s ladies managed four wins and a defeat in five games that ensured a qualification ticket to the 2019 Fifa Women’s World Cup in France.

The Super Falcons commenced their campaign losing 1-0 to South Africa, before bouncing back with a 4-0 win over Zambia, followed by a 6-0 win over Equatorial Guinea to progress from Group B.

Having advanced, they edged past Cameroon and Banyana Banyana on penalties in the semi-final and final respectively to retain the coveted continent’s crown for the third time in a row.

Even with the slip, Nigeria are still the best nation in Africa, while Awcon third-place winner Cameroon rose three places to 46th, while runners-up South Africa climbed two spots to 48th in the world.

On Saturday, Nigeria alongside other African representatives will know their fate as regard, who they will be facing in the preliminary stages at next year’s quadrennial event in France.

FIFA is a fraud jawe... I wonder why we have the NFF sef. Other countries football association lobbies FIFA for the rating of their team but the officials we have are just a bunch of people with pea-sized brains who only care about money. It is even expected of them to release a press conference on our recent rating even with our achievements let the world union of journalists waddle into the matter but no, the only thing on their mind is money

Victory that was being determine by penalties in semi and final? Fifa are not blind. The old falcons would have finish those two teams even before half time, Cameron nearly sent us packing in 90 minutes game. We ride by luck and not credibility because penalties is a game of chance. It is called anybody win

Super Falcons actually performed below expectation during the last outing but we are still the best in Africa 1000% times

It will take more than 50 years before any Female African country could catch up with our records in Afwcon

9-10 of the cup

For those who talking of performance, football is rated by FIFA by results only.

That said, you earn points in the ranking by winning games of significance. The significance of a game is measured by the competitive nature of the game (competitive games carry more points than friendlies) as well as the position of the teams you win on the ranking. That explains why countries seek for high profile friendlies. The European teams will always do well coz they play with teams of high ranking both in friendlies and competitive games.



That simply means that Zambia will get far more points for beating Nigeria than if Nigeria beats Zambia.

Nigeria won just two games against far lower teams, lost to a better team in South Africa, then drew other big matches in Cameroon and South Africa (penalties don't count as victory, it's just a way of eliminating one team. Those who are play bets understands).

You see, Nigeria did not win enough to climb the the rankings cool

I think FIFA consider only 90mins of football when ranking, with that Nigeria's record in the just concluded tournament and another country that climbed up the ranking like South Africa is:

Nigeria - L W W D D
South Africa - W W D W D

Let's not forget the friendly we lost to France 7 - 0

not bad to me...

Going to the world cup with that goal keeper and those defenders.. they will surely do better.
