Nigeria moves up in Latest FIFA rankings

Nigeria has moved up a spot from the 32nd position they occupied last month to the 33 rd position in the latest rankings released by FIFA yesterday.

The Super Eagles have 673 ranking points, nine points from last month’s 664 points, to move up one step in the table despite not playing any match since the last rankings were released.

The points however, did not change the country’s position on the continent as Nigeria still sits third behind last month’s top two teams; Algeria and Cote d’Ivoire.

Argentina and the Netherlands also retained the second and third spots with 1604 and 1507 points respectively. Colombia, Belgium and Uruguay are the other teams in the top six of the rankings.

Spain, however, moved a spot up to 7th as they added 12 points to last month’s 1229 to tie on 1241 points with Brazil. Switzerland and France are the last countries in the top ten of the table as they maintained their previous 1218 and 1212 points respectively.
