Nigeria’s Super Eagles dropped two places in the latest FIFA ranking, but the three-time African champions are still far ahead of their West African rivals Ghana

Super Eagles of Nigeria Move 14 Places Up In FIFA Ranking, now 3rd in Africa


February 16, 2024

The Super Eagles are now 14 places higher in the latest FIFA ranking following a great showing at the just-concluded 2023 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON).

The latest move makes the Super Eagles Africa’s number three team only behind Morocco (who are 12th) and Senegal, who are ranked 17th.

Nigeria displaced Egypt, Tunisia, and Algeria, who had a poor outing at the AFCON, to make Africa’s top three.

Meanwhile, Argentina maintained the top spot on the global scene and are followed by France and England.

Belgium, Brazil, The Netherlands, Portugal, Spain, Italy, and Croatia in that order, complete the top 10 best teams in the world.
