Despite failing to qualify for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, the Super Eagles have moved up two spots on the latest FIFA World Ranking.
Ranked 30th in the World, the Super Eagles lost the Qatar 2022 World Cup ticket to Ghana on away goal following a 1-1 draw at the MKO Abiola Stadium in Abuja last Tuesday.
Subsequently, head coach, Augustine Eguavoen, resigned while his technical crew were dismissed by the Nigeria Football Federation.
However, Eguavoen and the Super Eagles' exploits at the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations, though short-lived - thanks to their Round of 16 elimination by Tunisia, lifted them two spots up on the world ranking.
WuzupNigeria gathered that the Super Eagles who ranked 32nd on the last ranking dated 10 February 2022 now rank 30th on the latest ranking released on 31st of March.
Nigeria are third-best in Africa behind African champions Senegal and Morocco who rank 20th and 24th in the world.
Meanwhile, the Black Stars of Ghana who beat the Super Eagles to the World Cup ticket came nowhere near the top 50 as they rank 60th in the world.
