The Super Eagles of Nigeria moved up with three spots upward in the latest FIFA Rankings released by the world football governing body a while ago.
Nigeria’s win over Zambia wasn’t factored into the calculations for the rankings for September with FIFA giving the Eagles point for the win and the draw picked up against Cameroon.
They were ranked 44th in the August rankings, but the four points picked up in the World Cup 2018 Qualifiers tie against Cameroon has helped them move three spots to 41 in the world.
However they are still 5th in Africa behind Tunisia, Egypt, Senegal and Congo DR who are ranked as Africa’s top teams by FIFA going by their global ranking of 28th, 30th, 32th and 35th respectively.
