Nigeria’s Super Eagles experienced a slight setback in the recent FIFA rankings, slipping from 28th to 30th globally, as reported by Soccernet.ng. Despite a victory against Ghana in the ‘Jollof Derby’ and a defeat to Mali, their mixed performance contributed to this decline since February’s update.

The Atlas Lions occupy 13th spot in the world but retain pole position on the continent, followed by Senegal who are 17th in the world and second in Africa.

African champions, Cote d’Ivoire move up to 38th in the world and take up the fifth spot on the continent, just behind fourth placed Egypt who are 38th in the world.

North African powerhouses, Tunisia and Algeria remain 41st and 43rd respectively on the global rankings and are followed by Mali who moved three places up to 44.

The top three nations in the world are world champions, Argentina followed by France and Belgium in third.

Maintaining their position as Africa’s third-best team, ahead of Ghana and Egypt, the Super Eagles still trail behind Morocco and Senegal on the continent. With upcoming World Cup qualifiers on the horizon, hopes are high for a resurgence as they aim to reclaim their top-ranked status.
