FOURTH IN AFRICA! Super Eagles retain 44th position in FIFA ranking


AFCON 2019

Nigeria remain in the 44th position in the world but moved up to the fourth spot in Africa on the November FIFA ranking.

Back-to-back stalemates in the month under review ensured that the three-time African champions remain stagnant on the spot they attained last month.

Gernot Rohr’s men got 1427 points after a 1-1 stalemate against South Africa in the Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers – although the result was enough to help them seal their place in the tournament in Cameroon – and a goalless draw with Uganda in a friendly game.

Congo DR are fifth, while Ghana, Cameroon, Egypt, Burkina Faso and Mali make up the top 10 African countries.
