The Super Eagles of Nigeria have dropped two places in the FIFA men’s rankings for the month of October.
Gernot Rohr‘s men have dropped 14 points, moving from 34th to 36th in the world.
The three-time African champions dropped in the rankings following a shock 1-0 home loss to the Central African Republic in the first leg of their 2022 World Cup qualifier earlier this month.
However, the three-time African champions are still the fifth-ranked nation in Africa. The Teranga Lions remain the number one ranked country in Africa and 20th in the world, followed by Tunisia’s Carthage Eagles, who dropped one place in the world to 27th.
Morocco moved above African Champions Algeria into third place, while Nigeria are fifth.
Meanwhile, Belgium remain the number one ranked nation despite losing their two matches in the UEFA Nations League finals.
