Super Eagles drop on the latest FIFA ranking

The Super Eagles of Nigeria has fallen back three places from the previous ranking, when the team failed to win the two games they played this month, settling for back-to-back draws against Sierra Leone in their 2022 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers.

Nigeria have slides down to 35th position on the latest FIFA global rankings for November.

The Super Eagles are the fourth best country team in Africa as Senegal retained the first position, followed by Tunisia and Algeria in the second and third positions, respectively.

Recall that a fortnight ago, the Super Eagles lost a 4-0 lead against the Leone Stars on home ground. Four days later, the three-time African champions travelled to Freetown where they were held to a goalless draw by Sierra Leone.

The biggest movers in Africa are Equatorial Guinea and Burundi who climbed 10 spots after avoiding defeats in their AFCON qualifying games against Libya and Mauritania, respectively.

However, the next FIFA ranking which will be the final release for 2020 will be announced on December 10.
