There was only one movement in the top 50 of the latest FIFA Ranking but it did not affect Nigeria nor the top 10 nations on continent.
FIFA issued its latest world ranking on Thursday and whilst Brazil hold firm to their new heights, Egypt keep their strangle hold on the top rank in Africa and 19th spot globally.

Nigeria are still ranked 5th in Africa and 40th overall.
Slovakia were the only nation to drop a point in the top 50, within the month ( April ) under review.
The Slovenskí sokoli saw a point slump from 847 to 846, but it made very little difference to their position as they remain 24th best footballing nation in the world.
The next FIFA World Ranking will be published on 1 June 2017.
