CC0 Creative Commons

The Super Eagles of Nigeria maintained the 52nd spot globally in the latest FIFA/Coca-Cola World Ranking released on Thursday.

They remain the seventh country in African football behind Tunisia (23), Senegal (27), Congo DR (39), Morocco (42), Egypt (44) and Cameroon (51).

Tunisia are ranked first in Africa in the latest Federation Internationale de Football Association ranking and they stay 23rd in the world, while Senegal are second in Africa and occupy 27th position in the world.

The Super Eagles have not been in action since they beat Argentina 4-2 in a friendly game in November 2017.




The Eagles will face Poland and Serbia this month in friendly games created to prepare the them ahead of the 2018 World Cup.

The scarcity of matches meant that there were no new entries into the top 50, and that the regional composition of that group remains unchanged, with UEFA accounting for 30 of its teams, CONMEBOL nine, CAF five, CONCACAF four, AFC two and OFC none.

The next FIFA World Ranking is slated for April 12, 2018.

The team, which did not play any global match in this ranking period, jumped three places to enter the top-100 for the first time this year.
