Super Eagles of Nigeria have moved up 4 places in the new FIFA ranking which was released recently. The Super Eagles moved up 4 places to the 42nd position as they were in the 46th position two months ago. With the new FIFA ranking, Senegal (23) and Tunisia (28) are the only African countries above the Super Eagles. Morocco (45) and Congo DR (46) make complete the top five while Ghana (49), Cameroon (54), Egypt (57), Burkina Faso (58) and Mali (65) complete the top 10.
Though the Nigerian senior football team recorded a 3-1 win over Seychelles in a 2019 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) qualifier and a friendly 1-0 win over Egypt both in Asaba in March, it had little impact in the ranking. Belgium leads the world ranking platform and are closely followed by reigning world champions France and Brazil. England are in the Fourth position, after displacing Croatia who drop one place to fifth. Uruguay, Portugal, Switzerland, Spain and Denmark complete the top 10.
