Super Eagles drop two places in new FIFA rankings

Posted : 04 April 2024

The Super Eagles of Nigeria have dropped two places in the new FIFA rankings released on Thursday, now sitting at 30th, down from their previous position of 28th. However, they still maintain their lead over their West African rivals Ghana, following their 2-1 victory in last month's international friendly.

Nigeria's Super Eagles dropped three places in the latest FIFA ranking, but the three-time African champions still hold a significant advantage over their West African rivals, Ghana. In the February ranking, the Super Eagles were ranked 28th globally, but they dropped to 30th in the April 4, 2024 ranking, following a series of mixed results during last month's international break.

Nigeria defeated Ghana 2-1 in Finidi George's debut game as interim manager but suffered a 2-0 loss to Mali a few days later. Consequently, the Super Eagles dropped two places to 30th in the global ranking.

Despite defeating Ghana and losing to Mali in the previous month's international break, the Super Eagles maintain a considerable lead over Ghana, who dropped one spot to 68th globally. Nigeria continues to hold the third position, with Argentina remaining at the top.

The Super Eagles also rank higher than Erling Haaland's Norway (47th), Mohamed Salah's Egypt (37th), and Canada (49th), co-hosts of the next World Cup. Despite dropping two spots, Nigeria remains third in Africa, behind Morocco (13th) and Senegal (17th).

Egypt (37th), Cote d'Ivoire (38th), and Tunisia (41st) complete the top five on the African continent. Meanwhile, Argentina retains its position as the top-ranked nation globally, followed by France, Belgium, England, and Brazil.

Portugal, The Netherlands, Spain, Italy, and Croatia complete the top ten globally. The next FIFA ranking update will be released after June's international break.
