Super Eagles drop seven places in FIFA rankings

Super Eagles

The Super Eagles have fallen seven places in the August FIFA rankings published today.

Nigeria maintained their position in May, which was the last time the rating was released.

However, that changed this time as international friendlies were played within that period.

The Eagles dropped from third to fifth in the continent and to the 34th spot globally, having accrued 1480 points.

Gernot Rohr’s men failed to win any of their three international games, losing twice and settling for a draw once.

Senegal are ranked first in Africa and 21st in the world with 1545 points, while Tunisia’s Carthage Eagles are now 28th globally and second in Africa after accruing 1515 points.

Globally, Belgium retained top spot, while Euro 2020 winners Italy moved up into the top five behind runners-up England.

The next rankings will be published on 16 September 2021.
