NIGERIA IS 34TH IN LATEST FIFA RANKING

The Super Eagles of Nigerian has been ranked the 34th team in the world in the latest FIFA Ranking released yesterday by the world football governing body. They have dropped two places as they were 32nd in the June ranking.

Nigeria’s position plummeted also in Africa as they are now ranked 5th best team in Africa after being overtaken by Morocco in the latest ranking.

Eagles two defeats and one draw in their last three friendly matches against Cameroon and Mexico must have played a huge role in that.

Belgium retained their top spot despite being eliminated in the quarter-finals of the European Championship. Their last-eight opponents and eventual winners of the tournament, Italy, moved up into the top 5, just behind EURO runners-up England. Just above that pair, Brazil and France swapped places.

Argentina reaped the benefits of a triumphant Copa America campaign as they broke into the top 10.
