Super Eagles drops to 48th position in latest FIFA rankings

Nigeria has dropped a point from its last month’s 47th position to 48th place in the world, and from sixth to seventh in the continent, in the latest FIFA rankings. The statement on FIFA’s website said the recent flurry of pre-FIFA World Cup friendlies left its mark on the latest rankings.

While the top three positions are unchanged as Germany, Brazil and Belgium sit, Russia-bound duo of Poland and Uruguay have succeeded in making strides within the top 20. Super Eagles World Cup Group D foes Argentina, Croatia and Iceland are on fifth, 20th and 22nd positions.
