Nigeria’s Super Eagles dropped eight places in the latest monthly ranking released by the Federation of International Football Federation (FIFA) on Thursday.

The three-time African champions dropped from 30th to 38th position.

It would be recalled that the Super Eagles dropped two places in the previous FIFA ranking.

The slip in the ranking follows the team’s disappointing results in the recent 2026 FIFA World Cup qualifiers.

The West Africans held the Bafana Bafana of South Africa to a 1-1 draw at home and lost 2-1 away against the Cheetahs of Benin Republic.

The Super Eagles are, however, among the top five teams in Africa.

Morocco are the highest ranked country on the continent, with Senegal in second position. Egypt and Cote d’Ivoire occupy third and fourth positions, respectively.
