Nigeria’s Super Eagles slid from number 31 to number 32 in the most recent FIFA Coca-Cola world rankings, which were announced today (Thursday).
On the official FIFA website, the ranking was made public.
The Super Eagles are ranked fourth in Africa, behind Senegal, which will host the 2022 World Cup, Morocco, and Tunisia (3rd).
The Super Eagles’ drop in the most recent rankings may not be unrelated to their underwhelming performance during the international break last month.
