The Super Eagles remain unchanged in the September FIFA rankings released today.

Nigeria are still in 34th place, just like in the August rankings.

The three-time African champions also stay in fifth position on the continent, although they are just one place behind Morocco, who dropped to 33rd in the ranking.

The Eagles won their two games in September, defeating Liberia and Cape Verde in their 2022 World Cup qualifying group.

But it was not enough to move them up in the ranking.

Senegal remain the number one team in Africa and have also moved up to 20th in the world. The Teranga Lions are followed by the Carthage Eagles of Tunisia, now ranked 25th in the world.

Defending African Champions Algeria are third on the continent and 30th in the global ranking. Meanwhile, Belgium remain the number one ranked nation in the world, but world champions France have dropped to fourth, with Brazil retaining their second spot.

The three Lions of England are now number three in the world, while European champions Italy round up the top five.
