Nigeria drops to 40th in FIFA ranking, 6th in Africa

Nigeria’s Super Eagles have dropped five places to become 40th in the world and 6th in Africa in the latest FIFA ranking released on Thursday.

Nigeria dropped over 13 points from 1494.32 which they had when the last ranking was released to 1480.8 and are now behind a team like Russia that have not participated in competitive football for a while.

The biggest climber of all were Central African Republic, which enjoyed a double-digit rise (10 ranks) on the back of successive wins that have left it well placed to qualify for a first-ever AFCON appearance.

The Super Eagles have not had the best of runs, winning just once in their last five games.
