The April 2016 rankings released by FIFA rankings has seen the Super Eagles drop by five points to occupy the 67th position in the World, and 14th in Africa, as against the 62nd world position (11th Africa) they occupied last month.
The ranking released, Thursday, is a fallout of the national team’s failure to qualify for the forthcoming African Cup of Nations (AFCON) 2017 in Gabon which has affected the standing of the country, coupled with poor results recorded by former coach Sunday Oliseh.
The top ten in Africa now are Algeria (who displaced Cote d’Ivoire to take the first position in Africa), Côte d’Ivoire, Ghana, Senegal, Egypt, Cape Verde Island, Tunisia, Congo DR, Guinea and Congo.
Argentina returns to number one in the world, displacing Belgium, who had reigned for five months. Belgium is now second, and Chile is third (coming up by two places), and Colombia is Fourth, and Germany, fifth.
