Eagles move up to 29th position in new FIFA ranking


Nigeria moved to 29th position as the FIFA World Rankings returned on Thursday after a six month break.

The worldwide order of national team’s ranking, updated on a monthly basis, had been stopped since March following the flare-up of Covid, which upset the global match schedule.

Be that as it may, with games returning for the first time earlier this month, principally across Europe, the ranking is back.

Before the most recent ranking, the Eagles were 31st, which means the three-time African Champions moved two steps up to the 29th position in the world.

On the continent, the ranking puts the Eagles in third place behind the Teranga Lions of Senegal, who are in 20th position and the Carthage Eagles of Tunisia, who occupy the 26th position.

African champions Algeria (35), Morocco (43), Ghana (46), Egypt (51), Cameroon (53), Mali (57) and DR Congo (57) are among Africa’s top 10.

The Eagles last game was in November 2019, when they defeated Lesotho 4-2 in an African Cup of Nations qualifier.
