Super Eagles Crash Six Places In FIFA Ranking
Three-time African champions, the Super Eagles have crashed six places in the latest FIFA ranking.
The Gernot Rohr side dropped to 44th spot on the log despite their impressive run in the Russia 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifying series.
On the continent, the Eagles are ranked fifth best team behind Egypt, Tunisia, Senegal and Democratic Republic of Congo.
Nigeria will keep a date with their closiest rivals, Chipolopolo of Zambia on 7th of October in a bill to pick Russia 2018 World Cup group ticket.
Meanwhile, Germany returned to the summit of the World Ranking, continuing this year’s ongoing tug-of-war with Brazil for top spot.
The reigning world champions edged ahead of A Seleção following two impressive FIFA World Cup qualifying victories over Czech Republic and Norway, and head a table much changed after the recent Russia 2018 preliminaries.
The next World Ranking will be published on 16th of next month.
